Yes, this is the one with "Turn Up the Radio"! You know, the one where they sing "Day in, day out, all week long/Things go better with rock"! And ain't that just the truth? What a great song that is, and what a way to start the weekend! So how's the rest of the album? Well, I'm kicking myself for not listening to the whole thing before now, because this is the stuff! Opener "Send Her to Me" was another minor hit, so minor that it didn't register to where I was at the time, but today I'm loving it! And "Night Teen and Non-Stop" has the catchiness of chorus to match its silliness of title! Even the least memorable songs here are pretty damn catchy, and the whole thing is just one giant party! For a 30 year old album, released in that Orwellian year 1984, it sounds just as fresh today, and that's gotta count for something. Now, let's just hope they are able to persuade vocalist Steve Plunkett to take part in the ongoing reunion thing after all, and perhaps play Sweden Rock Festival?
