Loverboy - 1980 Loverboy
Once the US got hold of this the results were equally as impressive, going double platinum eventually..

Loverboy - 1981 Get Lucky
The expression 'all killer, no filler' more than applies to 'Get Lucky' which incredibly boasted no less than four charting singles.

Loverboy - 1983 Keep It Up
Many consider 'Get Lucky' to be the best album of Loverboy's career, which isn't surprising considering the hits it contained. Much stronger overall was 1983's 'Keep It Up' which saw the band continuing to utilize the winning formula of Bruce Fairbairn and Paul Dean

Loverboy - 1985 Lovin' Every Minute Of It
Loverboy were riding high from the multi platinum success of 1983's 'Keep It Up' coming into this album, their heavily synthesized form of heavy AOR finding arena sized favour through their native Canada and the USA. Loverboy adopted a slightly heavier sound for 'Lovin', with more gusto coming from Dean's guitar. Still the keyboards were as dominating as ever..

Loverboy - 1987 Wildside
Looking at it 26 years after the fact, this album seems to be designed more for the AOR fan than for those who liked their poppier material. The changing musical landscape also had a huge effect, as the careers of other legends like Foreigner, Survivor and Journey were not what they were just a few years earlier. But this is my favourite of their albums, sounding as good to me now as it did in 1987.

Loverboy - 2007 Just Getting Started
2007 sees the return of former Canadian AOR heroes Loverboy. 'Just Getting Started' has a leaden-footed vibe, with a production job that leans a little too close to many modern rock albums produced within the last five years or so. And that to me, is a huge problem.

Loverboy - 2012 Rock N Roll Revival
Overall, I come away very disappointed and would not go recommending this CD to all and sundry. Best stick with a Greatest Hits collection, or their back catalog.
