Hunting High And Low (1985)

}

Beginning with a bang, a-ha's debut album sold more than eight million copies worldwide and spawned three #1 hits. In the fall of 1986, "Take On Me" and "The Sun Always Shines on T.V." were nominated for 11 MTV Video Awards combined, and a-ha won eight of these.

In June 1986, a-ha began a world tour which carried on through August 1987. The band had never played a single concert when "Take On Me" shot to #1 in America; soon they could boast a 16-country, 113-city tour under their belt along with countless interviews and television appearances. With Hunting High and Low a-ha had arrived.

Magne: "It's a record from a band that wanted everything - all at once."

Tim DiGravina, AllMusic Guide: "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."
