5.0 out of 5 stars Fields of Plenty!
If you are Corey fan this one is a must. Very adult contemporary and some of his best work to date.
5.0 out of 5 stars Jimmy Rae and Blind Faith
In my opinion Jimmy Rae and Blind Faith are Harts best songs ever…very soulful and timeless yet each induce a very different feeling. Reminiscent of Eurasian Eyes…unique and evocative.
5.0 out of 5 stars Including Corys Version of Can’t Help Falling In Love,
Cory Hart is one of my favorite Canadian Pop Star who made huge hits during 80s such as NEVER SURRENDER and CAN’T HELP FALLING IN LOVE, originally an Elvis Presley song.
The album features that Elvis Presley cover as well as excellent songs such as I AM BY YOUR SIDE another huge hit from this album and DANCING IN MY MIRROR an uptempo rocker and TAKE MY HEART which should have been an huge hit. Album production and mixing is so great that you can find every track really enjoyable.
Verdict: Forgotten 80s masterpiece is available again.
Rating: 95 out of 100. Better than Boy In The Box. Probably best in his career.
Recommended for 80s power pop fans who love Outfield, Glass Tiger, Bryan Adams, Richard Marx and Survivor.
5.0 out of 5 stars Best Corey Hart Album
Yes, this album definitely surpasses Boy In The Box and First Offense. The production is outstanding. The songs are lyrical. Coreys voice sounds mature. It doesn’t even feel like this came out in the 80s! I can’t ask for more.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best albums of the the 1980s,
Corey Hart has been my favorite singer since I was a little girl. His music is so great. If you like Canadian music like Corey Hart.
The hit single, “Sunglasses at Night” propelled Canadian pop star Corey Hart to the top of the charts and helped his debut album, 1983s First Offense, become a major hit in the United States and Canada. Born in Montreal on May 31, 1962, he traveled frequently as a child, living in the Bahamas with his father, but primarily following his mother through Mexico, Spain, and Florida, among other places. His early efforts to sign with Canadian record companies were fruitless; he then went to New York, worked for a while, and returned to Canada, eventually signing a contract with Aquarius Records. His cool, athletic good looks made it easy to promote him as a post-teen sex symbol, but while his songwriting never managed to get very deep, he sang with a passion that made his songs appealing. Boy in the Box, the 1985 follow-up to his debut, produced a hit single with “Never Surrender,” which would remain his highest-charting song. His next album, Fields of Fire, met with some commercial success, but after that, his fortunes began to wane in the United States. His next two albums garnered little attention and 1990s Bang was his last with Aquarius. 1992s Attitude and Virtue was his first album with Sire/Warner, before he joined Columbia and released a self-titled album in 1996 and 1998s Jade, which Hart describes as his best-sung album to date. He continues to write songs and lives in the Bahamas with his wife and three daughters.
