Album Review

The Outfield's brisk pop sound gave them five Top 40 singles within the span of five years. Their sound is comprised of remnants of classic rock which is soothed by the fluidness of Tony Lewis' voice, and a front-line guitar attack driven by John Spinks. Big Innings is a generous, 16-track compilation made up of the Outfield's hits as well as their unreleased and B-side material, offering a delightful roam through their short-lived stint. With "Your Love," "All the Love in the World," and "Voices of Babylon" representing some of their greatest chart successes, the rest of the collection still houses many other pleasing contributions. The effectively encumbered guitar charge of "Since You've Been Gone" from 1987's Bangin' stands out, as does the sheer charm of "For You" off of 1990's Diamond Days. Although acoustic tracks such as "Alone With You" and "Through the Years" appear in mono, they are welcomed just the same. The disappointing Rockeye album contributes its two best efforts in "Closer to Me" and "Winning It All," while "One Hot Country" from the If Looks Could Kill soundtrack is the set's weakest contribution, sounding glitzy and overly effusive even for the '90s. Still, with only one or two feeble tracks, Big Innings is a more-than-sufficient hits package.

Customer Reviews

Teriffic compilation!

If you're an Outfield fan like me, you need this album. From the well known "Your Love" to the great "For You" and "All the love", this album has it all. Not heard of The Outfield? Then give this a try. All the songs are catchy, and you won't be disappointed. Would like to have seen "61 seconds" on here, but it still gets a full 5 stars from me!

Songwriting excellence

This is a fantastic collection of songs from a 'relatively' unknown band. They really should be a modern day great.

It's such a shame that music changed to the durge we hear on the radio. A travesty and a heartbreaking reality.

For any aspiring songwriter this album is a must. It has song after song with catchy chorus' that you can't get out of your head.

Voices of Babylon, My Paradise, Your Love and For You are my stand out tracks.

They (The Outfield) have a new album coming out April 2011 :)

Love this!

It's a shame this band were not as popular as what they should be. Love belting out these songs in the car 😍


Formed: London, England

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Ironically, given their obsession with America's favorite pastime, the Outfield got their start in London's East End. Playing under the name the Baseball Boys, the trio of bassist/singer Tony Lewis, guitarist/keyboardist John Spinks, and drummer Alan Jackman played around London and recorded some early demos, attracting the attention of Columbia/CBS Records. They were signed shortly thereafter and began working on their debut album, Play Deep, which was released in 1985. The album was a smash success,...
