Despite numerous musical styles coming and going since their self-titled debut arrived in 1989, Mr. Big admirably stood their ground stylistically, as Actual Size manages to retain their early arena rock sound while also fitting in with modern-day mainstream rock. This approach is best sampled on such tracks as "Shine" which ...

As evidenced by Actual Size, Mr. Big stuck to their guns till the very end. [Atlantic's 2001 edition included one bonus track, "Deep Dark Secret."]
