RADIO ACTIVE was a creative departure for Pat Travers. On this CD, he experimented with reggae on some songs, and succeeded in blending it with hard rock. Someone else might have failed but Pat succeeds quite well. Perhaps this is because living in Florida enabled him to absorb the rhythms of the islands better than, say, Ted Nugent, and blend them with Southern rock and 70s metal in a way that recalls old Jimi Hendrix albums. The rest of the album, which I could not remember, is average, however. Not that Travers hits total mediocrity, except on his attempt at humor on the awful "I Don't Wanna Be Awake. Tracks like "My Life Is on the Line," "Play It Like You See It," and the Todd Rundgren-esque pop song "I Can Love You" are decent tracks. Overall, this album, however, is only for diehard fans. As for the remastering, I recently learned that it was remastered from a vinyl source.
