I liked what I heard
back in the day
when Id hear them
on the radio or
catch a video
but I never bought
any of their music.
It sure is mature songwriting with top notch production.
If "Stand or Fall" was
a brand new song people would listen to the words and say "how timely".
I appreciate them even more now.
Crank it up

My band opened for them during their radio & MTV heyday at the Grand Ballroom in Reno, circa 1983-4?
During the soundcheck their drummer walked over to chat and get a closer look at my old WFL/Ludwig kit.
Cool guy! Said he never used a ride cymbal, kinda odd, but he had a deep groove on those hats.

I listen to React fairly often. It is mostly live, recorded on their 1986 tour of Canada. The production still sounds remarkably fresh. Great band, fantastic songs.
I got to see them once at the Spokane Opera House, I think on the Reach the Beach tour.
