Background
Admittedly, I lost interest in melodic rock sometime around 1987. The big hair, overblown production and lack of creativity sent me down other avenues of music for better or worse, but Ratt, Guns N' Roses, Poison, Bon Jovi and the like just didn't do it for me. Adding insult to injury, tried and true veterans Def Leppard and Whitesnake were starting to sound to these ears as generic as the Mascara and Hair sprayed armies record companies were signing in massive quantities. I had heard enough until one day in 1989 I caught the video 'Fly High Michelle' by Enuff Z'Nuff. These guys played the glam and glitter thing to the hilt and frankly looked ridiculous (not to mention a lot like Poison), but it's the music that matters and the song was a slice of pure pop metal magic. Their debut album hit all the right buttons for this listener, filled to the brim with catchy hooks heavily influenced by The Beatles, Badfinger and Cheap Trick, Enuff Z'Nuff were a dream come true and since their remarkable debut have gone on to release a string of excellent albums including this little baby, '10'.


The Songs
First let me say that group leaders Chip Z'Nuff and Donnie Vie are pop geniuses, hugely underrated and this band should have been huge. Now with that out of the way, '10' excels on every level. The opening 'There Goes My Heart' is a gem of Beatles inspired pop. Why this was never picked up by radio on a grand scale is a mystery. 'Fly Away' and 'The Beast' are both influenced by UK pop masters Squeeze while 'Your Hearts No Good.. But I Love Your Face' and 'Bang On' owes more than a smidgeon to Cheap Trick and surprise, there's even a cover of 'Everything Works If You Let It' originally recorded by the boys from Rockford. Nicely done! As an added bonus the disc includes a video for 'There Goes My Heart', ending the entire package on a high note.


In Summary
So there you have it, another corker of power pop bliss from Chicago, Illinois. I was born and raised there, but still can't answer the eternal question; is it something in the water down there (or 'up there' depending on your spot on the planet) that has produced so much of the world's power pop music? If there is I hope they bottle it at some point, but until then, get your hands on a copy of '10' at your earliest convenience. Me? I think I'll check out Youtube.com for the 'Fly High Michelle' video. I wonder what happened to the model that played Michelle. Yowza!
