Background: Released in June 1985, Hunting High and Low was the debut LP by A-Ha. Featuring the hit “Take on Me,” the album reached #2 on the UK charts and #15 in the U.S. where it was certified Platinum by the RIAA.
Anyone who dismissed a-ha as a one-hit wonder must have missed out on the band’s fine debut, Hunting High and Low. Though the band spawned many further hits across the rest of the world, “Take on Me” exploded in the States and the group never cracked the top of the charts again. It’s a shame, because the album contains a handful of songs that nearly match the manic energy and emotional crack of its big hit. Further, it’s a cohesive album with smart pace changeups, and it rarely fails to delight or satisfy a listener’s need for a synth pop fix. …One can’t escape the feeling that Hunting High and Low is a product of the 1980s, but with highs like “Take on Me” and “The Sun Always Shines on T.V.,” and no lows in sight, a-ha’s debut is a treat worth relishing.
