Corey Hart - Young Man Running (1988)

Country: Canada
Language: English
Genre: Pop, Pop Rock
Label Number: CDP-7-48752-2

© 1988 EMI-Manhattan Records
Corey Hart's first two albums each had a hit single on them. Young Man Running was released in 1988 and was his fifth record overall and third since the success of "Never Surrender." For an album that had disappointing sales and subsequently saw Hart dropped from EMI, Young Man Running is a surprisingly pleasant listen. The 11 originals all have a distinct sound and a relatively upbeat feel. Stylistically, Hart experiments with sounds of reggae and rock, and throws in a little Bruce Springsteen and the E Street band for good measure. Fans of Eddie & the Cruisers will like "In Your Soul." Fans of Hart's previous hits will also like "Truth Will Set You Free" and "Chase the Sun." Overall, Young Man Running is a good used find, and, though not filled with undiscovered hits, is an enjoyable listen.
