Roadmaster - Hey World (1979)

Another Roadmaster post for everyone here. "Hey World" is their third album, which continues their climb from standard midwest hard rock to AOR pomp. The hooks are still very subtle and the keyboards have taken a more prominent role than before. Depending on your preference, that can be good or bad. The band's sound is a bit softer than their previous releases, with an emphasis on pop more than hard rock. I personally consider this an improvement over their two preceding albums, though it doesn't quite stand up to the band's final studio album, "Fortress". In any case, lovers of midwestern arena rock should devour this one up. It's worthy of its entry here and deserves to be revisited all these years later. Enjoy!

Like Rocket, I have this one too [and I KNOW where my copy is! lol] The title track alone is worth getting. Very much in the Prism mode I think.
