Like REO, April Wine never really struck me as great songwriters. Most of the early albums have one or two songs that stand out, but comes across as standard hard rock for the most part. The late 70's albums from "First Glance" onwards became more commercially sucsessful to a point, but not very original.
Like REO Speedwagon, I can't listen to a complete April Wine album from begininng to end. I just loose interest.

If you want to get into the band, I would recommend a couple of the compilations that were out on CD. I don't know if they are still in print? Avoid the early 90's reunion CD's at all costs, and don't let anyone tell you the Greenway solo album is an AOR Classic. It's not.
