Album Review

Led by brothers Matthew & Gunnar Nelson, Nelson brought Rick Nelson's sons a lot of exposure in the early 1990s. Like that celebrated '50s icon, Matthew and Gunnar went for a polished, boy-next-door image — wholesome sex symbols, if you will — but their music didn't sound anything like their father. Instead, this debut album boasted a glossy, '80s-sounding blend of corporate rock and arena rock (sort of White Lion meets Loverboy meets Bon Jovi, minus the "bad boy" element). Rock critics tend to deplore and rail against albums like After the Rain, but say what you will — "I Can Hardly Wait," "Fill You Up," the chart-topping "(Can't Live Without Your) Love and Affection" and other melodic tunes are both catchy and likable. Granted, this type of pop/rock can easily become bloodless and mechanical, but the Nelson siblings come across as sincere. For all its slickness, After the Rain has heart.

Still A Hit

After 17 years, this is one of the few albums that I can put in, and listen to all the way through from front to back. Don't listen to small thinking, self proclaimed music critics (iTunes idiots) who really know nothing about music or making records. Take it from a musician of 30 years, and a Post-Production Mix Engineer: this may be one of the best hidden secrets in music history. Definitely on my personal Top 20!

Nelson Rocks!!

I Think Nelson Is COOL!!! Nelson's Harmonies are great. Too bad they dont sing to much anymore. GET THIS ALBUM!!!

Bring back the 90's

Two of the hottest and most talented boys to ever come out of the 90's. This album (cassette) was the stuff teenage girls dreamt of. Now - well, thank goodness for the internet. After the Rain, Love and Affection, More Than Ever, and Only Time Will Tell - 4 of the best songs EVER written!! This CD rocks!!

Nelson is a sibling act founded by Matthew and Gunnar Nelson, the twin sons of 1950s teen idol Rick Nelson. During the early '80s, the brothers joined a heavy metal band called Strange Agents. By the end of the decade, however, the group's name had changed to Nelson, as the twins were the only remaining members. With Matthew on bass, Gunnar on guitar, and a handful of music vets onboard (including guitarist Brett Garsed and former Vinnie Vincent Invasion drummer Bobby Rock), Nelson made their debut...
