The album featured their hit single "Eyes of a Stranger", which reached number one on the Canadian charts. Other songs on the album included "China Boys", "Don't It Make You Feel", "Cry Baby Cry", and "Girl in a Box".

Their follow-up album, Hammer on a Drum, was released in 1983 and featured the singles "Never Said I Loved You" and "Romantic Traffic". Other standout tracks from the album included "Mystery Man", "Danger Zone", and "Never Too Late".

The band's third and final album, No Stranger to Danger, was released in 1985. The album featured their hit single "Dance Romance", as well as the singles "It's All Over" and "Lost in Love".
