Wrabit - Tracks (1982)

Continuing with another Wrabit entry, this is their second album released in 1982. Not much has changed since their debut, except the music has gotten a bit heavier. Fans of hard edged arena rock will have little to complain about here. With a slightly different lineup. Wrabit successfully took the challenge and forged ahead with stellar results. "Tracks" is practically a sister album to their debut, with the tone, wuality of musicianship and radio friendly hooks of their first. It seems that Wrabit chose to defy trends by creating an AOR album that features less prominent keyboards, which was typically the reverse of what many other acts were doing during this period. The result is an edgy yet sleek batch of songs that should've been tright at home on FM stations across the contintent.

As fate would have it, America was not listening and thus, Wrabit toiled for another few years before finally throwing in the towel. This, however, is an excellent release that is sure to win more fans now than it ever did in 1982. Try it out and see what you think. This is damn fine canadian rock, folks...
