1981 would mark the peak of arena rock -- corporate rock to the critic class. Between them, Hi Infidelity, Foreigner 4, Styx's Paradise Theater, and Journey's Escape sold approximately 30 million units. This November 1980 release kicked things off with a mix of power balladry and hard rock with pop sensibilities. It's always been easy to bash this style of music but I've never seen the point. The above bands were generally proficient musicians, fronted by very capable vocalists, and wrote songs that were just plain catchy. It's the height of snobbery to disparage them just because the "wrong" people bought their music.

Thirty five years later, Hi Infidelity is a still a good listen. The radio-friendly hits are familiar to everyone, but side two continues with some fairly strong material. "Out of Season" in particular is a well-crafted song.

I thought Hits was the only REO Speedwagon I needed. I was wrong--I need this one too.

The first signs of change in musical style. At the very beginning of the eighties but still going strong influence past the seventies.

One of the early 80s arena rock classics! That middle ground between Zeppelin and the 80s hair metal bands.

If you were in high school in the early 80's, you had this album. May be a bit dated now, but this was certainly one of the soundtracks of that era.
