A-Ha - Stay on These Roads (1988) Retail CD
This album marked the end of an era for A-ha, their last 80's album. Although it has a glossy synth feel - the pull away from the synth/pop sound was emerging and the contrasting songs on the album don't fit together too well. It's a shame because most of the songs are great but the extremes of style can be a little jolting.'Stay on these roads' An electro ballad, with crashing drums, soaring vocals and a video featuring motorbikes.'The Blood that moves the body' This is a pivotal track for A-ha, for the wrong reason. It was the first single not to fair well in the charts - however it's a standoutmore… track that sounds different to anything the band had done before.'Touchy!' An all out catchy pop song, given a bluesy guitar feel.'This alone is love' Originally a B-side some years before, it was good then, but a shame A-ha had to water it down and over produce this version.'Hurry home' A brooding synth track that is much more in the style of later albums.'The living daylights' A dance mix (!) of the James Bond theme, this is another track that makes this album feel cobbled together and that A-ha did not have enough songs.'There's never a forever thing' An extraordinary song, very emotive ballad and definately an album highlight.'Out of blue comes green' This is one of the best tracks on the album, it's a great pop/rock ballad and this is the style of song A-ha do best.'You are the one' In contrast, this is straightforward pop, with simple lyrics and the last chart hit for A-ha in the 80's.'You'll end up crying' The bands wierdest track ever, a synth violin accompanies Morton on this short and not so sweet sounding song. Sticks out like a sore thumb but then most tracks here do. The bottom line is that A-ha have put a few catchy songs in here as singles and tried to pad out the rest with more adult sounding songs, seperatly each song works great, but it's a mish mash when together. Worth buying for the songs that aren't singles.
