Top reviews from other countries. I had this album back in the shadows of history At that time I was really good mates with a guy who worked for Guitarist Magazine and when the tape broke I somehow convinced myself that this was a demo I had through him and was probably not replaceable.
However the tracks never left my head surfacing from time to time particularly the excellent "I'm an Adult now" and a few weeks ago I decided to search for it and there it was like an Amazon based Holy Grail! The separation of years has done nothing to reduce the effect this album has on me.
I love it as much now as I did then and still think it is up there with the best debut albums ever others obviously including Appetite for Destruction and The Presidents of the United States. If you a fan of heavy guitar based indie music do yourself a favour and add Love Junk to your collection, you will not be disappointed!
If you enjoy pop rock then this album is a must, a true classic. Beatles, Cheap Trick, Wings and Jellyfish fans will adore this album. Cd new thanks to the seller. Report abuse. A good rock album.

Smith received universal acclaim for his performance from critics and audiences alike and was nominated for an Oscar and a Golden Globe for Best Actor. In , San Francisco salesman Chris Gardner invests his entire life savings in portable bone density scanners, which he demonstrates to doctors and pitches as a handy quantum leap over standard X-rays.
The scanners play a vital role in his life. While he is able to sell most of them, the time lag between the sales and his growing financial demands enrage his already alienated wife Linda, who works as a hotel maid.
The financial instability increasingly erodes their marriage, in spite of them caring for Christopher Jr. Chris has difficulty selling the scanners, as they are much more expensive than common X-rays but produce only a slightly better picture.
Because of this, he does not make enough money to make ends meet and Linda is forced to work double shifts. He meets Jay Twistle, a manager for Dean Witter , to whom he has applied for a position as a stockbroker, and impresses him by solving a Rubik's Cube during a shared taxi ride.
Gardner boards a train but loses one of his scanners in the process. The day before the interview, Gardner grudgingly agrees to paint his apartment so as to postpone being evicted due to his difficulty in paying the rent. While painting, Gardner is greeted by two policemen at his doorstep, who take him to the station, stating he has to pay for the numerous parking tickets he has accumulated. Gardner has to spend the night in jail until his check clears, complicating his schedule for his interview at Dean Witter the next morning.
He arrives still wearing his shabby, paint splashed clothes. Despite his appearance, he impresses the interviewers and lands a position as one of twenty unpaid interns, competing for a single paid position as a stockbroker. This does not please Linda, who leaves for a job in New York. After Gardner bluntly says she is incapable of being a single mom, she agrees that Christopher Jr. Gardner is further set back when his bank account is garnished by the IRS for unpaid income taxes, and he and Christopher are evicted.
Later, Gardner finds the bone scanner that he lost in the BART station and, after repairing it, sells it to a physician, thus completing the sales of all his scanners and paying for a night in a hotel.
Gardner develops a number of ways to make telephone sales calls more efficiently, including reaching out to potential high-value customers, defying protocol. One sympathetic prospect who is a top-level pension fund manager even takes Chris and Christopher to a San Francisco 49ers game at Candlestick Park.
Gardner completes the stock broker license test faster than any of the other candidates. Concluding his six-month-internship, Gardner is called into a meeting with his managers. To break the ice, Gardner jokes that he is wearing a shirt unlike the undershirt he wore to his interview to mark his last day. Frohm smiles and says he should wear another one tomorrow as it will be his first day in the full-time position.
Fighting back tears, Gardner shakes hands with them, then rushes to his son's daycare to embrace him. They walk down the street, joking with each other and are passed by the real Chris Gardner, in a business suit. The epilogue reveals that Gardner went on to form his own multimillion-dollar brokerage firm.
