All Music Guide - Mike DeGagne
Built on a sturdy pop foundation and powered by Alan Frew's accented voice, Canada's Glass Tiger found instant fame with their debut album, Thin Red Line, in 1986. From it, three singles cracked Billboard's Top 40, with the stylishness of the trumpet helping "Don't Forget Me (When I'm Gone)" reach the number two spot while utilizing Bryan Adams' gravely voice in the chorus to balance out the sharpness of Frew's.
