10. Only Lonely (though I really started loving it from the '85 live versions)
8. Tokyo Road
7. The Hardest Part Is The Night
6. In And Out Of Love
5. Always Run To You
4. In And Out Of Love
3. Silent Night
2. Secret Dreams
1. (I Don't Wanna Fall) To The Fire
0. King of the Mountain (the only song from the 80's I hate with passion!)


No 9 points given away here. I really think the album has some of the best riffs and hooks of BJ - but the "chemistry" just isn't there for me most of the time. And the unnecessary high pitched choruses don't help either. It's an album I really have to be in the mood to listen to.

9. Only Lonely
8. In And Out Love


0's to all the rest.

I've never liked 7800. A vast majority of it sounds like a bad Mtley Cre xerox record to me. Honestly, Tokyo Road is the only standout track in my mind, and the only one that I think stands up with the rest of the band's output.

You have In & Out of Love twice, and no Price of Love

I actually love every track on this album. I remember getting it just after I got Slippery when I was about 7 years old and wearing my cassette tape out. A straight up, awesome hard rock album that is massively under-appreciated. Compare this to what their peers were doing at the time...this was a cut above.

The tops are high, and the lows are very, very low. (IDWF)TTF and KOTM are among the worst shit I've heard in my entire life. I can't get what they wanted with those songs. But then on the other hand, OL and THPITN are among the best. And as someone mentioned, the melodys on the album are very wellworked but some songs feels a little rashy made. But still a solid 5/10

I started liking To the fire and Run to you immensely when I realised how Cyberpunk-esque they are (if anyone is familiar with this scifi subgenre). To the fire is very techno-futuristic in the 80's sense of the word. It's probably the only song on the album where the horrible sound serves the song.
I'm amazed how underrated To the fire is on an album of this caliber. What drags the album down in my opinion is the sound, which is very round and flat. Too much delay, the snare has no punch and in songs like Silent night and Secret dreams the synth-sound is ridiculous. Comparing the sound of this album to Slippery, they're worlds apart. If it has something to do with their instruments and equipment being stolen mid-recording, that I don't know. The other thing is the lack of good lyrics. Most of the songs have no stories, no clever humor, no personality, just clich rhymes.

10 In & Out of Love
9 Always Run To You
8 (I Don't Wanna Fall) To the Fire
7 The Price of Love
6 Tokyo Road
5 The Hardest Part Is the Night
4 Silent Night
3 Only Lonely
2 Secret Dreams
1 King of the Mountain

I honestly tried to listen to this album this morning in light of this thread, thought I'd give it a go with an open mind.

It's shite. Utterly terrible.
