Many wondered why it was taking the group so long to release a follow-up to 1981's HIGH 'N' DRY, but the finished product was well worth the wait. Not only did it become one of the year's best-selling albums and made the band instant U.S. arena headliners, but it has remained a consistent seller ever since (by 1994, it had reached nine million units in the U.S. alone). The songwriting and overall sound was more streamlined and succinct this time around--while there are guitar riffs galore, the songs have more of a pop feel.

Editorial Reviews:
Rolling Stone (11/89) - Ranked #62 in Rolling Stone's 100 Greatest Albums Of The Eighties survey. Spin (p.105) - "[T]hey sweeten the sound, mating AC/DC riffs to Journey mall drama, battle-march mythos to lovelorn mooning over photo albums." Magnet (p.114) - "[O]ne of the biggest, most anthemic albums of an era marked by huge, anthemic albums." CMJ (1/5/04, p.12) - Ranked #19 in CMJ's "Top 20 Most-Played Albums of 1983". Record Collector (magazine) (p.80) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "'Photograph' became a signature for the hair metal masses, with its rich harmonies and sweet melody, while the lighters were aloft for the likes of 'Too Late For Love.'"
