After a string of inconsistent albums dotted with promising tracks, April Wine got it together in the album format on 's Stand Back. This album found the group hitting a workable balance between pop songcraft and hard rock guitar power and effectively Abductors - Judas Priest - Jugulator it into a Laurent Ho* - Back-to-the-roots of tight songs that rock out as they deliver pop hooks a-plenty.
It starts on an up note thanks to "Oowatanite," an effectively arranged rocker featuring a fire-alarm sound effect. It became a hit in the band's native Canada and quickly became a permanent fixture in the band's live set list. Other potent tracks on Stand Back include "Cum Hear the Band," a languid but guitar-laden track about the joys of seeing a band live with an effective sing-along Oowatanite - April Wine - Stand Back in its chorus, and "Victim of Love," a steamy rocker that puts forth its tale Ash - Polaris unrequited love with plenty of scorching guitar work.
Stand Back also played up Myles Goodwyn's penchant for the power ballad on "I Wouldn't Want to Lose Your Love" and "Tonite Is a Wonderful Time to Fall in Love," two memorable songs that effectively underscored their delicate ballad melodies with layers of restrained but powerful electric guitar.
This effective combination of slickness and muscle made Oowatanite - April Wine - Stand Back songs big hits at home and paved the way for later international hits like "Just Between You and Me. Despite these occasional lapses, Stand Back remains a solid and likable album that frequently tosses out unexpected surprises the lovely Beach Boys-style vocal harmony breaks that suddenly pop up in the otherwise hard-rocking "Highway Hard Run".
