Maybe, but they went the wrong way. What makes 'Your Love' a great hit is the lead vocal and the backup vocals playing off of each other. It is not the rudimentary guitar riff in the song. It is not the big hair or the androgenous clothes, or the good looks. I just never heard the attention grabbing vocals in their other songs, as they went after that 80's love song ballad genre, but maybe they should have went in the direction of Sweet or Thin Lizzy and hardened their edge, while maintaining an almost rock 'barber quartet' sound throughout. They are a one-hit wonder band, in my opinion.

The key thing to remember about the Outfield is that they have stayed true to their roots all these years. They are the same guys today that they were years ago in terms of the style of music they play and write.
