They have a very early album called just "Haywire" (I think) that I've never heard as it is very hard ro find. From what I've heard it's very keyboardy, high tech, dance pop.

Their second and best known album is called "Don't Just Stand There" and is closer to classic AOR. Lots of keyboards, not very heavy, but catchy as hell and full of pop hooks. Pretty good album.

Nuthouse you've heard. It's their 3rd and obviously a play for more respectability. Heavier, more Bon Jovi-ish, anthem rockers, huge ballads...you get the picture.

Now their final and IMO best album is "Get Off." Not as heavy as Nuthouse but still very arena-like but with way better material and production. A lot of people will tell you this is Haywire's more mature, experimental album but that brings up a lot of bad connotations like the guys have forgotten their AOR roots or something. Not true. Not the least bit modern or alternative...just a great album that's overlooked a lot. Pick it up if you can find it. I've found 2 in my lifetime...so it's not impossible.
