Nine Lives is the eighth studio album by REO Speedwagon. It peaked at number 33 on the Billboard 200 chart in 1979. The album went gold on December 5, 1979. The title Nine Lives was chosen because the album was the band's ninth, including their live album, and it also featured nine songs. It was the last REO album to prominently feature a more hard rock sound. The group would turn to more pop-oriented material with 1980's Hi Infidelity. In 2013, the album was released on CD by UK-based company Rock. Nine Lives - REO Speedwagon. Лента с персональными рекомендациями и музыкальными новинками, радио, подборки на любой вкус, удобное управление своей коллекцией. You aint got nine lives Drop it. Drop it. It was winters last showin and our last fling Before returning to our lives in the valley. We pretended we were lost in the wilderness, And I pretended to be your guide. Our love was a play and you were the actress. REO Speedwagon gets slagged regularly, but they always deliver in concert and the freewheelin' Nine Lives, their natch ninth, sports one cool sleeve: tight leather, suspenders, fishnets, and cat chicks. The black circle inside rocks mightily also. Bassman Bruce Hall steps up to the plate with Back on the Road Again, a stadium stage staple that kept these Illinois boys makin' noise on the radio.

Sample this album Artist Sample. Nine lives indeed. the bands 8th studio album and 9th release in all, finally rattled the charts across the USA with the top notch Hit Single 'Back On The Road Again, if you hadnt noticed new Bass player Bruce Hall on the previous disc then you couldnt miss him now,what a fantastic track,first Speedwagon track i ever heard. Naming their album Nine Lives was a tribute to the fact that they had managed to record nine albums for EPIC records, a truly amazing feat baring in mind that they had yet to secure a hit single or even secure a foothold in the trendy East and West Coast concert halls. REO Speedwagon's previous album had signalled a shift in style towards a slightly more refined sound and Nine Lives continued with that transition. This time around the sound was more forthright, with Richrath and Cronin really hitting their stride, reminiscent of the classic vocalguitar foyle of say PlantPage or Tyle.
