  1. Ah, another poll with REO in it, another poll where I'll watch the vast majority of people vote against them while I ponder their underappreciatedness! It's almost nostalgic at this point.
  2. I generally consider these four bands to be the biggest titans of late 70s early 80s AOR. Toto, Boston, and Survivor are great contenders as well, but they had much different career trajectories in their heyday. The interesting thing about these four bands to me is they all had rather similar careers from about 76/78 through the mid-late 80s. They all flourished commercially in the wake of Boston's debut and helped pioneer the AOR sound. They subsequently all became massive superstars in 1980/1981 with the release of their commercial juggernaut (Hi InFidelity, Paradise Theater, Escape, and 4). Then they all eventually cracked under the pressure of fame and following up that massive success, leading to the departure of one half of each band's creative core after a less than stellar album release (Tommy Shaw from Styx, Steve Perry from Journey, Gary Richrath from REO Speedwagon, and Lou Gramm from Foreigner). So how do you answer the poll questions? I'm going to give those REO and Foreigner albums a listen today as they seem to have sold and been remembered so poorly I've never once seen them in a used record bin, which means I don't yet own them!
  3. I'd like to specify that my copy of help is the less famous soundtrack American version, but you can take it to mean the more famous British version if you desire.
  4. The midwest vs. the west coast 1980 vs. 1981. Which monster hit machine radio conquerer is superior? For my money, Journey were usually better with Greg Rollie in the band. REO are firing on all cylinders here and it's been a long long time coming for them. You should have seen from the look in my eyes, there was something missing...
  5. REO and BTO (aren't you glad I didn't toss REM into this?). Pick one and tell us why!
  6. Which of these mega-blockbuster AOR peak albums from 1980-1981 do you love the most? And why?
  7. Just want to know if anyone else here listens to them. They don't seem very well known, but I just saw them in concert and they were great!
