Recently joined member reviving yet another stale, dead thread.
I think Aldo Nova was great. Some of his stuff does sound dated and a little awkward now but so what. Subject: Aldo Nova was an instant hit with me. The entire album. It's still one of my favorites from 1983. It's one of those albums that I would not want to be without.
"Fantasy" was obviously a huge hit song on album oriented rock radio stations but I did not buy that album until after I bought Subject.
I still have his first three albums on vinyl and Blood On The Bricks and Nova's Dream on cd. I also have the Under The Gun collection. Over the years I have had more than a few iPods and iPhones. Their sizes were always limiting on the amount of music I could fit versus the amount of music I had in my collection. Aldo Nova was always iPod worthy.
I never saw him perform live but play me anything from Aldo, and I'll sing along.
