Special Limited Deluxe Collector's Edition - 5 Bonus Tracks. Fully remastered sound shaped from 24 BIT digital technology. Classic British AOR. 16 page full colour booklet - 3,500 word essay, enhanced artwork, memorabilia, rare photos and new interview with the band. FM's DEBUT album, 'Indiscreet', set the scene perfectly. This was a British band with their eyes set firmly on the American market, playing music equal to, if not superior, than masters of the craft such as Foreigner, Journey and Survivor. That they had not earned a significant sales foothold was shocking but it only fuelled their resolve to come back out swinging with their sophomore album, the stoically titled, 'Tough It Out'.
This time around they were taking no chances. Arming themselves with new management (REO Speedwagon's representative) and a real producer in Neil Kernon (Autograph, Michael Bolton) and topping off their determination by collaborating with some of the best songwriters (including Desmond Child) of the day they constructed an album of serious potential. Originally issued in 1989, 'Tough It Out' takes all the excitement of their first album and infuses it with top notch production and an energy that suggested they weren't going to take any prisoners. Mixed by Nigel Green (Def Leppard), the album contains eleven stunning slices of melodic AOR, including such crowd pleasers as 'Don't Stop', 'Bad Luck' and 'Burning My Heart Down'. As always, Steve Overland must be credited for his superlative performance - outstanding vocals that turn quality songs into exploding supernovas of melody and sophistication. The end result is truly, one of the greatest AOR albums of all time.
