Reseña de álbum

Many albums have scaled to the top of the American charts, many of them not so good, but few have been as widely forgotten and spurned as REO Speedwagon's Hi Infidelity. In a way, the group deserved this kind of success. They had been slogging it out in the arenas of the U.S., building up a sizeable audience because they could deliver live. And then, in 1980, they delivered a record that not just summarized their strengths, but captured everything that was good about arena rock. This is the sound of the stadiums in that netherworld between giants like Zeppelin and MTV's slick, video-ready anthems. This is unabashedly mainstream rock, but there's a real urgency to the songs and the performances that gives it a real emotional core, even if the production keeps it tied to the early, previsual '80s. And so what if it does, because this is great arena rock, filled with hooks as expansive as Three Rivers Stadium and as catchy as the flu. That, of course, applies to the record's two biggest hits — the power ballad "Keep on Loving You" and the surging "Take It on the Run" — which define their era, but what gives the album real staying power is that the rest of the record works equally well. That's most apparent on the Bo Diddley-inspired opener, "Don't Let Him Go," whose insistent beat sent it to the album rock charts, but also such great album tracks as "Follow My Heart," the sun-kissed '60s homage "In Your Letter," and "Tough Guys." What's really great about these songs is not just the sheen of professionalism that makes them addictive to listen to, but there's a real strain of pathos that runs through these songs — the album's title isn't just a clever pun, but a description of the tortured romantic relationships that populate this record's songs. This is really arena rock's Blood on the Tracks, albeit by a group of guys instead of a singular vision, but that makes it more affecting, as well as a killer slice of ear candy. It's easy to dismiss REO Speedwagon, since they weren't hip at the time, and no amount of historical revisionism will make them cool kitsch. And, let's face it, their records were usually hit-and-miss affairs. But they did get it right once, and it's on this glorious record — if you need proof why arena rock was giant, this is it.

The start of the 80's

Greeeat album!

This album is fantastic. It's early 80s for sure..no doubt..What most people don't realize about REO is that they are a rockin' band. Anyone who says otherwise has never seen them live and must get their information from adult contemporary type radio stations. A couple of ballads made them famous millionaires, sure..can't be denied.. But they were and are a five man, midwestern rock band. Nothing more, nothing less. Hi Infidelity was refined compared to their previous records. It shows in the mix. But the genious of the record is that it came when it did. They set the standard for power ballads and arena rock. Whether it was intended or not. And thereby creating over 10 million records in sales. Even after the Hi Infi phenomenon, REO kept to their roots and played what they wanted to play. Their music was great then and is now. It is a testiment to why they are still together (most of them) and still selling out concert venues nationwide.

One of the best albums ever produced

Hi Infidelity is one of the best and most under-rated albums ever made. Every song on it is great. Like Boston's debut album and Rush's Moving Pictures, it is rock and roll perfection.

Three bands were the undisputed arena rock kings of the early '80s — Styx, Journey, and REO Speedwagon — yet all weren't overnight success stories (in fact, each group began pursuing different musical styles originally — prog rock, fusion, and straight-ahead hard rock, respectively, before transforming slowly into chart-topping mainstream rockers). REO Speedwagon first formed in 1968, via a pair of University of Illinois students, keyboardist Neal Doughty and drummer Alan Gratzer....
