Mr. Mister's "Welcome To The Real World" must be one of the smash hit albums in 80's, which climbed to #1 on the Billboard album charts during early 1986 featuring two #1 hit singles; "Broken Wings" and "Is It Love" another top 10 hit peaking at #8 on the Billboard chart.
After producing 3 great albums as the band "Pages", it was 1984 when Richard Page and Steve George formed Mr. Mister along with Steve Farris and Pat Mastelotto and released their 1st album "I Wear The Face" which was not so successful in terms of the sales as Pages days. In June 1985, the second album "Welcome To The Real World" followed. The first single "Broken Wings" cut in August 1985 was the breakthrough for the band, which climbed up the chart and finally reached # 1 position on the Billboard in December 2005.
In August 2009, the album has been reissued as the LP style paper sleeve limited edition with 3 bonus tracks, using 2006 remastered version.
