    Originally issued as an EP, 1985’s Take What You Want was the first release by melodic rockers Hurricane, which featured Kelly Hansen on vocals. The band might have emerged from the L.A. hair metal scene, but their polished and melodic sound was closer to House of Lords and Giuffria than it was to Poison or Motley Crue. Take What You Want is a very strong debut recording, and it’s easy to see how it landed the band their major label contract. The songs are very well written and have a great sense of melody, and Hansen’s voice is simply irresistible.

    In addition to the EP’s original 6 songs, the CD includes early versions of three songs from Hurricane’s second album Over the Edge – I’m On To You, Baby Snakes, and Over the Edge – as well as a brief instrumental track called L.A. Luna. These songs are interesting enough, but the real value of Caroline Records’ 2008 reissue of Take What You Want is hearing the original EP with crystal clear digitally remastered sound.

    If you’re a fan of the 80’s melodic rock and/or hair metal scene, these Hurricane reissues are a must-have, and Take What You Want is the ideal place to start.

    NOTE: The CD comes housed in a mini-LP style package. It’s essentially a slightly oversized cardboard sleeve with the disc enclosed in an interior envelope. The reissues of the band’s later albums include liner notes, but they are missing from this album. I’m not a huge fan of this kind of packaging (it doesn’t do a great job protecting the CD), but I have to admit that it is ideal for showcasing the album cover artwork, and as you can see Hurricane’s album covers are worthy of the extra attention!

    This is the band’s debut and has some great songs. I have the tape, which contains a bonus instrumental called La Luna at the end. Not sure if this was part of the CD or not as it is not listed on Amazon’s track listing. The instrumental is similar to Randy Rhoad’s “Dee” and is pretty cool. Because the label this band’s original releases were on is no longer in existance, all their older releases are currently out of print. Would be nice if a new label picked up the rights and reissued this. There are a couple filler songs on this release (Girls Are Out Tonight being one of them), but this rocks for a band’s debut and is worth picking up if you can find a used copy. 3 1/2 stars and is very comparable to their second release Over The Edge.

    Remaster of a great band, but some of the lamest packaging I have ever seen. “Artwork restored to match original vinyl release” meaning we are going to be very cheap. It is just like a record with a cardboard case and paper inner sleeve, except they’re cd sized, and that’s it. Nothing else. Limited Edition implies something special.

    Awesome band, some say a ‘one hit wonder’, but almost every song on this cd should have been a hit.
