LOVERBOY – Get Lucky [Remastered 25th Anniversary Edition +4]

LOVERBOY - Get Lucky [Remastered 25th Anniversary Edition +4] full

LOVERBOY second album was requested as well and you can find it in the BGO Records in a 2-on-1 CD release, but I think it’s better to post here “Get Lucky remastered 25th Anniversary Edition” as it uses the same remaster but including 4 juicy bonus tracks.

After making a promising start with their self-titled debut, Loverboy hit the big time with second album “Get Lucky”. This canny combination of AOR hooks and new wave production gloss boasts some memorable radio-ready tunes.
You have the timeless classic ‘Working for the Weekend’, a party anthem that blends some gutsy hard-rock guitar riffs with a synthesizer-drenched arrangement to become a huge hit, while “The Lucky Ones” layers clever lyrics about the jealousy that success inspires in others over a song that mixes pomp rock grandeur with a punchy AOR arrangement full of gutsy yet slick guitar riffs.

Loverboy got additional airplay with “When It’s Over,” a moody power ballad that boasts a show-stoppingly emotional vocal performance from Mike Reno, and “Take Me to the Top,” a sleek mid-tempo piece built on a hypnotic synthesizer arrangement experimenting with non-conventional song structure.

‘Gangs in the Street’ rocks and ‘Jump’ is also excellent with its great guitar riff, solid drumming, and a certain urgency and seriousness that give it strength and power. “Lucky Ones” is a song about how some people have better luck than others. Loverboy does a good job at making social commentary.

Loverboy’s “Get Lucky” is classic. Who doen’t remember this iconic cover artwork, whit the question made for years: Who wears the red leather pants in Loverboy’s cover? Not so long ago was revealed that the model wearing the leather pants was 13-year-old Tymara Kennedy, daughter of photographer David Michael Kennedy who shot the cover.
Again produced by the great Bruce Fairbairn, “Get Lucky” is pure ’80s. This remastered reissue is excellent, perfectly balanced in sound and including very interesting previously unreleased bonus tracks.
