Album Review

Although Bangin'was not as huge as the Outfield's runaway debut, it's still another flawless piece of pop craft. This trio knows hooks and is never afraid to use them. Swirling in the center, as always, is the precise and economic guitar of John Spinkswhose sentimental songwriting becomes even more forlorn and desperate when passing though the pipes of sonorous singer Tony Lewis. Most songs are variations on the classic unrequited love theme, and thus avoid pretension like (gasp!) early Beatles. Plus, the impassioned vocal delivery over tight playing constantly pulls the listener inside the soaring songs. And in the end, the songs are all that matter. "Bangin' on My Heart," "No Surrender," "Moving Target," "Main Attraction," and "Since You've Been Gone" pack picture-perfect power punches. In fact, Bangin' maintains a consistent quality exclusive to only the upper echelon of rock. Mistakenly lost in the Police files, the Outfield are a true find, and Bangin' deserves any pop fan's attention.

Customer Reviews

Johnny B

What can you say about a group that puts out super music one album/CD at a time. During our youthful High School days here in San Antonio and while enjoying Spring Breaks '86 & '87 on the beaches of Port A and South Padre to present present day, The Outfield makes many of us feel good inside and out. My five year old already knows the words to many of The Outfield's songs. What a great band and what a great way to look back at super times as we were coming of age. SUPER MEMORIES & SUPER MUSIC seem to always go hand and hand.

High School

This was one of my first cassettes, and I listened to it over and over on my Walkman. Still makes me feel great after all these years. Great beat and melodies, fun and energetic!

This is an Absolute classic

This album was second only to Play Deep by The Outfield. This is a must have for anyone who loved the outfield. This album brings back memories of cruising and listening to this cassette...

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,...
