      Originally released in 1984, Stand Back was the debut album from Canadian new wave/AOR band The Arrows. The band played a synth (and sax) heavy blend of pop and rock, falling somewhere between Duran Duran and Boulevard.

      “Say It Isn’t True” was the single from Stand Back, but songs like “Meet Me in the Middle” and especially “Fallen Angel” (which is such a perfect ‘80s teen movie soundtrack song) could have easily been hits. They’re probably a bit light, even by AOR standards, but this is some really catchy, really well done ‘80s pop. Fans of Duran Duran, Boulevard, Platinum Blonde, The Outfield, Mr. Mister and Mike + the Mechanics ought to really dig The Arrows.

      Edition Notes: Yesterrock’s 2011 reissue of Stand Back puts this long out of print album on CD for the very first time. It features newly remastered audio, but no bonus material and a pretty bare-bones booklet. Just having it on CD and sounding this good more than makes up for that though.
