Indiscreet & Tough It Out [Import]
(United Kingdom - Import, 2PC)
Two strong and classy albums from mid-late 80s Brit AORsters FM, the one band on the scene other than Magnum who had anything vaguely approaching a hit single. Fronted by the charismatic Overland brothers, their sound was the closest a UK band came to the sounds of Journey, Survivor, Night Ranger etc- although their own influences included everything from Split Enz through Zeppelin to blues and soul and they were more Metal than Cutting Crew or Mister Mister had ever been. Of the two albums, Tough It Out was the masterpiece- featuring 'Bad Luck', 'Every time I Think of You' and a host of other songs with (unfortunately) similar titles to other people's. Sadly, despite mucho acclaim in the rock press, both these albums tanked, and FM never reaped the rewards they deserved. Nevertheless, these are still two great albums. Digitally remastered, slip-cased with new notes. BGO. 2005.
