Hailing from the US East area, 8084 released three very nice Melodic Rock / AOR albums during 1987-91. The band is still active and presented a disappointing comeback record nine years ago, but this "Satisfaction Guaranteed" from 1991 is a really good one.
More an EP than a full length CD, "Satisfaction Guaranteed" packs seven tracks but in fact two are intros, starting with "Elevator Intro", a fun parody of Aerosmith's famous hit, and followed by the first proper song, the bombastic title track with sharp guitars and a tongue-in-cheek attitude reminding me Autograph.
"Telephone Intro" precedes "Call Me", a bright melodic rocker with an AOR coat full of magic, the latter styling more accentuated on the midtempo ballad "Surrender", another highlight.
The guitar driven "Animal Logic" is the hair metal / rocker on the CD, before ending with the acoustic "Fade Away" in the mould of Tesla or Extreme, an emotive song dedicated to the band's former keyboardist who was killed in a car accident 1989.
"Satisfaction Guaranteed" is a very hard to find album, and this is not the best rip of the world (I don't own the CD) but at least all tracks are complete, much better than other copies with cuts circulating the net.
Very Good stuff.
