Album Review

Lacking Paul Dean's amicable guitar chug or Mike Reno's excitable vocal pounce, 1985's Lovin' Every Minute of It fails to sport anything as catchy as "Working for the Weekend" or as rock steady as "The Kid Is Hot Tonite," and because of this, the album comes off as one of the band's poorest releases. Although the title track cracked the Top Ten, its lethargic, see-saw pace fell short of what the band had put into past hits. Even in ballad form, Loverboy sounds uninspired and bland with "This Could Be the Night," which actually made it to number ten on the charts. The Jim Vallance-Bryan Adams-penned "Dangerous" almost works, but filler like "Bullet in the Chamber," "Friday Night," and "Steal the Thunder" lowers the album's stock substantially, proving that their knack for writing uproarious but catchy radio rock material was now behind them. Both this album and 1987's Wildside mark the group's digression into arena rock prosaicness, and anything that is the least bit appealing from Lovin' Every Minute of It is best heard alongside their biggest hits on one of their compilations.

Forget the Critics, This is Merely Fun

I used to bang my head to this album. Seriously. The ballads are definitely evident of '85 and that's what makes 'em what they ought to be. "Friday Night" and "Lead a Double Life" are Loverboy at their heaviest. The album captures the time of what was then deemed 'Heavy Metal'. It runs with the likes of Autograph, Twisted Sister and Quiet Riot. Not to be judged harshly. Simply good nostalgia.

I don't care what the critics say I love this album!

This is sooo much better than what kids my age are listening to now although, I wasn't alive yet when this album came out, my mom bought it and loved it . and when I found it 24 years later I loved it!... get my point?


Formed: 1980 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Years Active: '80s, '90s

One of the most popular North American rock bands of the 1980s, Loverboy scored a string of multi-platinum albums and hit singles with their canny blend of pop hooks and polished but energetic arena rock. Loverboy were formed in 1979 by vocalist Mike Reno and guitarist Paul Dean; both were veterans of Western Canada's rock scene (Reno had worked with the band Moxy, while Dean toured and recorded with Scrubbaloe Caine and Streetheart), and Dean was rehearsing with a new band in Calgary, Alberta.
