Harder ... Faster is the eighth studio album by Canadian rock band April Wine, released in 1979. This album is RIAA certified gold in the US.
"I Like to Rock" was a huge hit for the band. "21st Century Schizoid Man" is a cover of theKing Crimson classic, which appeared on that band's 1969 debut, In the Court of the Crimson King.
AllMusic review by Eduardo Rivadaria
As suggested by its title, Harder...Faster sees veteran Canadian rockers April Wine taking things up a notch with relentless slabs of hard rock in "I Like to Rock" and "Ladies Man." Also on hand is a memorable cool groover called "Say Hello," a curious cover ofKing Crimson's "21st Century Schizoid Man," and the dual personality of "Tonite," which alternates between quiet balladry and all-out riffing. Band leaderMyles Goodwyn even relinquishes the spotlight in a rare show of democracy to second guitarist Brian Greenway on the impressive "Before the Dawn." Ultimately, this is a consistently strong album which sets the stage for what would be April Wine's best effort, the following year's The Nature of the Beast.
