9th Street - 1989 The Prayer
For those of you with a liking for hi-tech pop/AOR then a tour up 9th Street might just be your bowl of latte. This British outfit play in a similar style to bands such as Channel 5, Modesty, Valet Parking and Go West. There's a bit of Toto to be found here too.

A.R.S - 1989 Truth In A Structured Form
Better known as Atlanta Rhythm Section, the band did take their time coming back to the fold, returning at the end of the decade with this effort 'Truth In A Structured Form'. They had to resort to an abbreviated name (A.R.S) as some former band members complained about the continuation of the original name.

Aaron, Lee - 1989 Bodyrock
When we consider the discography of former Canadian metal queen Lee Aaron, we often overlook her 1989 album 'Bodyrock'. Really, this is one of the better hair-metal albums of that year, with a bunch of fun, infectious tunes.

Accept - 1989 Eat The Heat
This is of course the most controversial album of Accept's career, reason being the absence of original vocalist Udo Dirkschneider, who by the time of 'Eat The Heat's' release in 1989, had already recorded two solo albums.

Adelaide - 1989 Fast N Far
Ms Ferreira gives us exceptional female oriented AOR in the mould of Tone Norum and Marie Frederiksen. Seh occasionally dabbles in blues and straight up rock n roll too. Whatever the case, this bird can sing.

Akiko - 1989 Akiko
On many occasions we see how life imitates art, or how the clone imitates the original to the point of seamlessness. Case in point - Japanese female singer Akiko Kobayashi, who's 1989 self titled album is as close to the late Karen Carpenter, to the point of being scary!

Alexa - 1989 Alexa
Sensational slab of AOR/melodic rock from LA rock vixen Alexa, who vocally could be considered a Paul Sabu clone. Nonetheless, it's a fairly heavy affair, with raucous vocals very much to the fore.

Alexander, Gregg - 1989 Michigan Rain
Very much an atypical late 80s pop rock record; 'Michigan Rain' wasn't a success commercially and clearly Alexander was searching for his own voice but there are glimmers of a talent in the making. Richard Marx meets Bon Jovi minus the hard rock bombast of the latter are good comparisons..

American Angel - 1989 American Angel
American Angel are a five piece outfit coming out of New Jersey. Musically these guys have Icon surging through their veins like an intravenous drip of melodic rock sugar.

Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe - 1989 Anderson Bruford Wakeman Howe
At the time I was still left with a bad taste in my mouth after the messy hi-tech overkill of 'Big Generator' so other than another typical but gorgeous Roger Dean sleeve, I didn't expect much from the line-up. Surprise! This album is huge in both sound and scope and stands shoulder to shoulder with any classic early Yes album.

ASAP - 1989 Silver And Gold
What happens when you combine three of London's prime movers in the hard rock scene? namely Iron Maiden, Bad Company and FM? You get A.S.A.P. that's what!

Ava - 1989 Ava
The mysterious German singer Ava releases very hi-tech poppy AOR with well-written songs that go far deeper than most Europop I've encountered.

Bad English - 1989 Bad English
This album holds a very special place in my CD collection. It was, in fact, the very first CD I ever bought, back in the year 1989 when I made the transition from vinyl to CD.

Bad Habit - 1989 After Hours
A discussion on Scandinavian AOR would be incomplete without mention of Malmo based outfit Bad Habit. Timing their run through the 80's and dodging hair-metal bullets along the way, this classy five-piece straddled the fence between hair-metal and AOR, ending up like a cross between Danish boys Fate, Norwegians Da Vinci and fellow Swedes Glory.

Badlands - 1989 Badlands
Here was a band that was literally put together in the badlands of rock n roll. A solid lineup of players who were befuddled by management, record labels and themselves it would seem.

Barnes, Don - 1989 Ride The Storm
Here's an album that never saw the light of day, with a big budget and top-notch studio musicians on supply. Wonders never cease to amaze. Don Barnes of course is/was a member of 38 Special, and back in 1989 had this album 'Ride The Storm' ready for a big-label release. This never occurred, and the project remained a mystery ever since..

Beau Heart - 1989 Invitation
More hi-tech AOR in the mould of Go West, Modesty and Valet Parking, comes in the shape of German artist Beau Heart. Only just mind you - the whole album is a bit poppy and bouncy by comparison.

Beau Nasty - 1989 Dirty But Well Dressed
Beau Nasty was a typical late 80's sleaze band, releasing a brand of good time hard rock similar to that of Britny Fox.

Beck, Robin - 1989 Trouble Or Nothin'
A Brooklyn NY girl does good, it would seem. An undoubted talent, Robin Beck sits high in the pecking order of female melodic rockers! This is her second album, and rides on th back of her singles success with the Coca-Cola jingle 'First Time'..

Big Big Sun - 1989 Stop The World
Call me crazy, 'Stop The World' is startlingly derivative of The Police and Yes circa 'Big Generator' and yet I find the record for the most part, very enjoyable.

Bigstorm - 1989 Living In Exile
Another Australian outfit from Sydney with a very classy melodic rock album. As the name implies, they do have a big sound, which combines elements of bands such as The Believers, Mike And The Mechanics, and perhaps fellow Aussies INXS and Noiseworks.

Bishop, Stephen - 1989 Bowling In Paris
Singer songwriter Stephen Bishop really hit the nail on the head with this overlooked set of hi-tech West Coast/AOR. Bishop has hovered around the softer edges of rock for many years. A host of albums as well, but this beauty 'Bowling In Paris' takes the cake.

Black Sabbath - 1989 Headless Cross
The band, well known for their obsession with things to do with the occult, went for the jugular on this album. The satanic and occultish themes were well covered on just about every song. Despite such leanings, ' Headless Cross' is an incredible slab of melodic metal from The Sabbs, the production huge, the playing from all involved goes beyond the call.

Blue Murder - 1989 Blue Murder
Without doubt one of the most under-appreciated albums in all of 1989, perhaps overshadowed by many great albums from that year..

Bolton, Michael - 1989 Soul Provider
By 1989, Michael Bolton was well on his way toward commercial success. It was like the corporate machine was readying itself to assimilate Mr Bolton deep into the bowels of the money chamber. He manages on this album at least - to fire off a few good salvoes of AOR, and to demonstrate what it was he was leaving behind before disappearing over the horizon into mom and pop territory. 'Soul Provider' would be his proverbial meal ticket..

Bongiovi, Jodi - 1989 Jodi Bongiovi
Musically this undoubtedly has a few good moments, but I would probably take more interest if it was Tone Norum, Sandi Saraya or Alexa singing!

Bridge 2 Far - 1989 Bridge 2 Far
Where Pop Rock meets West Coast, is where you'll be standing with on Bridge 2 Far. The majority of Bridge 2 Far is mainstream, light, and features lots of sax and horns etc. However in saying that, guitar gods Steve Lukather and Michael Landau turn up for the party so you know there's gonna be an edge somewhere along the way.

Burns Sisters - 1989 Endangered Species
More sisters in here than you can shake a Convent Choir at. One similarity though, they all sing like angels. The other redeeming feature of this outfit is that AOR demi god Bob Marlette is the kingpin behind all the precedings, and he turns this project into an AOR delight.

Cats In Boots - 1989 Kicked & Klawed
From the hair metal era of the late 80's comes this half American half Japanese outfit. Formed around former Merri Hoax lead singer Joel Ellis, Cats In Boots typify the glam metal sound coming out of California at the time, lining up alongside the likes of Faster Pussycat, Bang Tango and Motley Crue.

Czakan - 1989 State Of Confusion
'State Of Confusion' is a much admired slice of melodic hard rock from German melodic rockers Czakan, with a ton of keys and blistering guitarwork.

Dalton - 1989 Injection
Music wise they could be compared to fellow Swedes Norden Light, (at the heavier end of the spectrum) mixed with the lighter style of Treat and 220 Volt.

Danger Danger - 1989 Danger Danger
Musically Danger Danger were heads above the standard bland band of the day, their clever mixture of party rock and AOR almost too advanced. At the right place at the right time, the debut scored heavily with the singles 'Naughty Naughty' and 'Bang Bang'. The album would eventually go gold, no small feat.

Dareforce - 1989 Firepower
Dareforce's history goes way back into the late seventies, and at one stage the band had among their personnel - drummer Johnny Bolin, brother of the late Tommy Bolin (Deep Purple), as well as vocalist David Reece who later found fame with Accept and the shortlived Bangalore Choir.

Darling Cruel - 1989 Passion Crimes
Musically they are an eclectic mix of The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, and Meatloaf, crossed with more modern day contemporaries such as Dalbello, Dan Reed, National Velvet, Prince, and another cult favourite in Cock Robin.

DeMont - 1989 Body Language
Melodic rock band originating from Sydney Australia. A bit raw around the edges but for this effort 'Body Language' De Mont have definitely got the big dollars onboard to help them smooth over those rough edges and come up with a brilliant slab of music.

Denson, Al - 1989 Al Denson
A few familiar similarities are on show when you listen to the album. Think along the lines of Paul Janz, Michael Gleason, Michael W Smith, Liasion and Brett Williams )of In Reach fame. All of these guys in a big melodic melting pot, stirred up big time is what Al Denson churns out on this magnificent debut.

Distance - 1989 Under The One Sky
So with this rather eclectic mix of talent, what do we get? We get well produced AOR with hi-tech and funk overtones and a brash drum sound. Similar to Power Station and the Dan Reed Network but very melodic and dynamic.

Diving For Pearls - 1989 Diving For Pearls
Diving For Pearls had done the unthinkable and gone into Kerrang's Top 5 albums for 1989. Remember people this was an era dominated by Metallica, Poison, Guns 'n' Roses et al, and was voted as one of the best AOR genre albums of the year. 1989 was perhaps the last great year of AOR with many bands all releasing wonderful albums. Elite company indeed.

Domain - 1989 Before The Storm
Though Domain later moved into power metal territory, the first few albums between the 1988 and 1991 era are worthy of your attention, and we'll eventually cover as many albums as we can. In the meantime, pick up 'Our Kingdom' and 'Before The Storm' and discover a hidden jewel from the German melodic rock era.

Dragon - 1989 Bondi Road
'Bondi Road' was another substantial success for Dragon in the Antipodes, and you can tell from the title and much of the subject matter that they focused on their home market here. Taken as a trilogy of albums starting with 'Body And The Beat', some of the finest AOR I've heard is on offer.

Dream Theater - 1989 When Dream And Day Unite
Looking back, the 1989 year was a catalyst for change, and a doorway opening to greatness for some.. New York based Dream Theater being one such example, though at the time, they would be the first ones to disagree.

Drive She Said - 1989 Drive She Said
The driving force behind this pure AOR duo is the ex American Tears and Touch keyboardist Mark Mangold. Hooking up with the golden voiced Al Fritsch, DSS became an AOR outfit much talked about before their Columbia debut landed in 1989.

Elektradrive - 1989 Due
First joining ranks in 1981, the band went through various musical incarnations before settling into a style that saw a combination of 1st Avenue pomp meets Shy (circa 'Brave The Storm').

Enuff Znuff - 1989 Enuff Znuff
Enuff 'Z Nuff's over the top glam image in their MTV videos often clashed with their power pop sound, causing some to unfortunately lump them in with the pretty boys of the hair-metal genre that was huge at the time. Thankfully, EZN transcended that genre with their vocal harmonies and power pop sensibilities.

Extreme - 1989 Extreme
Over the years, I have to say I have't been a great admirer of this band. They've been extremely (excuse the pun) popular, and they've had some huge hits, but for me, the consistency has't been there. Except for the debut album.. haha! A very good impression was left after this album. It remains my favourite Extreme album out of their discography, primarily due to the hair metal flavor of Bettencourt's guitar playing.

Fahrenheit - 1989 Talkin' About Love
Austria is hardly the AOR metropolis of the planet. Better known for world class skiers, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Apple Strudel, who would think that tucked away in the back corner of the Austrian Alps is a classy AOR band that deserves a heap of praise. These guys are Fahrenheit.

Fifth Angel - 1989 Time Will Tell
'Time Will Tell' is a half-decent record I'll give them that, commercial melodic metal with a lot going for it, surprising to say.

Fire Town - 1989 The Good Life
They were originally described as an alt rock band, but really Fire Town were a country rock band with a hint of melody and strong songwriting and production skills.

FM (UK) - 1989 Tough It Out
Neil Kernon, fresh his exploits with Queensryche, would join the production team for 'Tough It Out', and thereby the instant appeal of 'Indiscreet' would be replaced for a harder edged version of AOR. Still loads of gorgeous songs, offset by some (err hmm) 'tougher' songs as well.

Frampton, Peter - 1989 When All The Pieces Fit
I have to admit, 1989 was an excellent year for melodic rock. Frampton with his work on 'When All The Pieces Fit' proves that reasoning beyond doubt. The album is encased in great songs. There's not a dud here to be honest.

Frehley, Ace - 1989 Trouble Walkin'
Here's the third album from Ace Frehley during his Megaforce/Atlantic tenure. Now under his solo name, rather than the band name Frehley's Comet, 'Trouble Walkin' may have flown low over the hard rock landscape during 1989, and it's a pity the radar was off-kilter for this effort during that year.

Giant - 1989 Last Of The Runaways
Without doubt, 'Last Of The Runaways' was a further claim to the great year in melodic rock that was 1989.

Glamour Camp - 1989 Glamour Camp
A one-off and very easy to find album featuring the son of The Cars Ric Ocasek, going by surname Christopher Otcasek - and it surely had to be tough..

Glory - 1989 Danger In This Game
As far back as 1988, the band had material demoed with the Bozz label, which would eventually make up the fantastic 'Danger In This Game' opus. By this stage singer Peter Eriksson had come in for Ray Alex, and the first hint of magic would unfold on some rather special tracks.

GNP (Gilmour Negus Project) - 1989 Safety Zone
GNP is the acronym for the Gilmour Negus Project, two of the members of Canadian pomp gods Saga. At this stage of their career, the two had left Saga to branch out on their own, and co-opted singer Robert Bevan to join them.

Graces, The - 1989 Perfect View
The story of Charlotte Caffey (formerly of The Bangles) is one which has been overshadowed by the success of her former bandmates. She formed the all-female trio The Graces, whose album 'Perfect View', although not perfect, has moments of greatness which are easily equal to her peers.

Gramm, Lou - 1989 Long Hard Look
All in all, going back to listen to this album proved a worthwhile exercise. Even though melodic rock and AOR were quietly exiting the door in 1989, Gramm did enough for Atlantic to generate two decent singles on the Billboard Charts.

Harnen, Jimmy - 1989 Can't Fight The Midnight
Harnen moved towards a solo career, firstly as the leader of Synch, then ultmately on his own. His debut album 'Can't Fight The Midnight' is a pretty good effort, definitely AOR, and with all the hottest players money can buy.

Heist - 1989 High Heel Heaven
Coming to the hard rock scene a couple of years too late were San Francisco based rockers Heist. Along with a few other Bay Area wannabes such as Jetboy and Babylon A.D, these guys were pretty much admired in their hometown, and straddled the hair metal/glam scene with sound somewhere between Helix and Dokken.

Hiroshima - 1989 Hiroshima
Spain delivered a couple of decent melodic rock bands during the late 80's, Madrid's Hiroshima being oe of those. If you combine the Spanish way of playing melodic hard rock with the Swedish way, then Hiroshima are for you. They are keyboard capable, with ivory-laden melodic rock in the vein of early Treat and Dalton mixed in with Spanish rivals Niagara.

Hot Boy - 1989 Barely Legal
Seems this band is as mystical and mysterious as the recent White Diamond fiasco. And though the alter-ego's and pseudonyms were apparent with that band, the same can be said for this Portland Oregon based outfit, who were making waves nearly a decade before.

Hotel Hunger - 1989 This Is Where The Fun Starts
Danish band Hotel Hunger are hard to pin down musically. They come across with a distinctive Simple Minds feel, mixed in with some other influences as wide ranging as Australia's Noiseworks and Canada's New Regime.

Icon - 1989 Right Between The Eyes
The resulting album differed greatly from the rampaging metal of the debut and the AOR tinged follow up, the band leaning towards a predictable formularised late 80's hard rock sound that almost left them without an identity. That's not to say this album is a flop, only the real Icon went 'Missing'.

Illustrator - 1989 Somewhere In This World
In the Christian rock music scene, Illustrator released two albums during the 80's, with this second effort being the pick of the duo.

Insight - 1989 Reaching Out
You can obviously tell these boys have sat around the family stereo playing Kansas and Shooting Star albums ad nauseum, such is the influence on the band. To tell you the truth, there are those two influences plus more than a passing interest in the material of Rush.

JC (John Clouse) - 1989 Desire
A milder version of the Bryan Hughes Group, Arcangel and Sabu all spring to mind when winding my way through these ten tracks of AOR. The brainchild of John Clouse, he does virtually everything..

Jet Red - 1989 Jet Red
Pretty good line-up this one. Shame the record label shat all over this band! Jet Red's sound is sort of in the same groove as Def Leppard, Babylon A.D and 29.0, though a bit lighter than all of them put together.

Joal - 1989 Joal
Joal is a German female rocker from Hannover, who sings with a ton of grit, and a backing ensemble to make the best German hard rock band cringe in fear.

Jones, Howard - 1989 Cross That Line
Remember Howard Jones and his magnificently spiked hairdo? Always in heavy rotation on MTV and impossible to miss but like the equally bizarre coiffure worn by A Flock of Seagulls Michael Score, there was a formidable talent lurking behind the ridiculous image while charting some of the era's biggest hits..

Jones, Mick - 1989 Mick Jones
Despite being given the short sharp boot back in 1989, I have a soft-spot for this album. Not as strong as the Lou Gramm pairing by a longshot, there are a couple of songs that should be given a chance. Mick Jones won't ever come across as a Steve Perry in the vocal department, but he stands on hallowed ground when it comes to his songwriting ability; that there is no doubt.

Jones, Ricki Lee - 1989 Flying Cowboys
Rickie Jones re-emerged in 1989 with 'Flying Cowboys'. Produced by Steely Dan's Walter Becker, this is noticeably laid-back and less experimental than previous works.

Kiss - 1989 Hot In The Shade
'Hot In The Shade' was an attempt at the hard rock market that was saturating the charts and airwaves during the late 80's but somehow lacked the melody of 'Unmasked' or 'Crazy Nights'; while the heaviness of 'Creatures Of The Night', 'Lick It Up' and 'Animalize' was absent.

Leatherwolf - 1989 Street Ready
Here's another killer LP from the late great 1989. Yes, it is with some embarrassment that we get to Leatherwolf some 6000+ albums reviews and 16 years later! Really, this should have been covered earlier than it is..

Leonard The Dog - 1989 Day By Day
A very unusual offering from this Pacific Northwest outfit with the dopey name. Yes Leonard The Dog maybe a humourous title, but this lot are AOR applied 100%.

Liaison - 1989 Liaison
This 1989 debut is one of the best of its kind from that era. The songs are all immaculately produced, but it's the songwriting effort from Larry and Tim Melby which allows this album to glide from start to finish.

Lillian Axe - 1989 Love + War
For me, an enjoyable album from the 1989 timeline was New Orleans band Lillian Axe and this underrated album 'Love + War'.

Logan, Johnny - 1989 Mention My Name
Logan has released a handful of albums, mostly during the 80's on the Epic Records label. His earlier works are geared toward MOR pop, but by the end of the decade, in yet another attempt to rebrand himself, he took to the West Coast/AOR sub-genre with astounding results.

Lukather, Steve - 1989 Lukather
Having queued up a whole swag of material that never made it on Toto's earlier albums, this was an ideal opportunity to release them under his own name. In doing so, his self titled debut from 1989 features a who's who of the L.A session scene.

Manzanera & Mackay - 1989 Up In Smoke
As a top notch overview of one of art rock's all too numerous commercial failures, Manzanera & Mackay's 1989 album 'Up In Smoke' can't be beat.

Marillion - 1989 Seasons End
When Fish left Marillion in the late 80s, the future seemed uncertain and a lot of people suspected they were finished. Determined not to be written off, the remaining band members recruited new vocalist Steve Hogarth, previously with The Europeans and little known Portrait Records signings How We Live. The result, in my opinion, is mind-blowing.

Marshall Law - 1989 Marshall Law
This is a powerful exercise in heavy metal and is one of the best albums to come out of the tepid English scene of the late 80's.

Marx, Richard - 1989 Repeat Offender
'Repeat Offender' was even more successful than the debut going triple platinum within a few months and eventually selling over 5 million copies in the US alone. For its sheer musicality and quality of song-writing (it yielded 5 hit singles) this album easily merits its status as one of the greatest AOR albums of all time.

McNeill, Dugan - 1989 In The Velvet Night
The music here is a cross between bands like Simple Minds or U2 on one edge of the spectrum, while Glass Tiger sits at the other end.

Melidian - 1989 Lost In The Wild
Melidian have a very heavy handed sound, complimented by great keyboards and a terrific rhythm section. In fact there are more than a few passing shots at Stephen Pearcy's Ratt.

Messano - 1989 Messano
'Messano' has just seen a reissue on Retrospect Records, so it is now readily available after being a hard-to-find original CD on the small Strategic Records label.

Miller, Donnie - 1989 One Of The Boys
Donnie has bought a few of his buddies along to play, including former Shooting Star 4-stringer Norm Dahlor. Some other big names credited for appearing on the album include Cyndi Lauper and Tommy Shaw who both provide backing vocals on a pair of tracks. The Tommy Shaw comparison is a good one, because 'One Of The Boys' has an 'Ambition' feel about it, along with a bunch of other 80's guitar rockers.

Misslead - 1989 Gentle Persuasion
Misslead are a female-fronted heavy rock outfit from Norway. Following on in a similar fashion to countrymen/ countrywomen Blonde On Blonde and Laos, this lot are a tad heavier all-round.

Modesty - 1989 Pieces Of Modesty
Hi-tech lovers a la Kevin McCourt, Time Gallery etc will find much to like with Modesty. Despite being Swedish, this is a west-coast delicacy!

Molly Hatchet - 1989 Lightning Strikes Twice
Molly Hatchet certainly inject more than enough 'hook & melody' into their brand of tough barroom Southern Rock to be considered one of the flagships of Southern AOR.

Morales, Michael - 1989 Michael Morales
We should all re-familiarise ourselves with all three Michael Morales albums, as they really are an AOR treat for the ears!

Moss, Ian - 1989 Matchbook
If you were alive and kicking on the red continent during 1989 then it would've been hard to miss Ian Moss on the tube or on the air. 'Matchbook' spent three weeks atop the Australian Album charts, and was the platform for Mossie to pick up an Aria Award the following year.

Mothers Finest - 1989 Looks Could Kill
Not one of their best albums, but an interesting sidetrack nonetheless. 1989's 'Looks Could Kill' which fuses R&B, funk, soul, rock, pop and urban hip-hop/rap. It's true that this seemed to be a logical follow-on from Joyce's solo albums during the mid 80's, and that the whole affair isn't really Mothers Finest at all..

Mylon And Broken Heart - 1989 Big World
It's a big sounding CCM album, no two ways about it! This is the sort of band that needs a bit of rediscovery. Go out and find a few of their CD's. Anything during the mid to late 80's, plus 1970's 'Crank It Up' are well worth the investigation.

Nitro - 1989 O.F.R
To this day Nitro are the only band I recall who attempted a mixture of thrash, AOR, hard rock, even grindcore, and successfully translated it to disc.

Osmond, Donny - 1989 Donny Osmond (1989) and Eyes Don't Lie (1990)
Here's another 'two-fer' review from former teen idol Donny Osmond, who has decades later, discovered hi-tech R&B, pop-rock.

P.M Heat - 1989 P.M Heat [EP]
Interesting little 4 track EP from this obscure Texan outfit. This band, with three family members involved, aspired to a hi-tech AOR sound not unlike fellow Texans The Cauze or talented Atlanta outfit Babe Blu. However, they come off sounding like a hybrid of bands.

Poco - 1989 Legacy
After years on the circuit, playing a country tinged West Coast type sound, and with more lineup changes than the St Louis Cardinals would care to name over the years, Poco attempt to poke their nose into the melodic rock camp, and guess what? They do real well.

Pretty Boy Floyd - 1989 Leather Boyz With Electric Toyz
Forming in 1986, Pretty Boy Floyd were one of the last high profile glam metal acts to emerge from Sunset Strip. Flaunting an extreme glam metal image, PBF's sound was highly derivative, recalling in particular pre-Shout Mtley Cre.

Pulsar - 1989 Gorlitz
While not nearly as Prozac inducing; French group Pulsar are often compared to Pink Floyd due to their dark and spacious style. However, their comeback 1989 album 'Gorlitz' presents a fresh and very modern sound.

Queen - 1989 The Miracle
Although Queen had ceased to be a major draw in the States earlier in the 80's, 'The Miracle' was a resounding success in the UK and Europe, at least five of the tracks were major hits.
