The Net is the seventh studio album by Little River Band, which was released in May 1983. It marks what has become historically, the major crossroad in the band's musical direction. There stand several significant factors surrounding this record – it contained the band's last two singles to reach the Top 40 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States, with "We Two" reaching No. 22 and "You're Driving Me out of My Mind" peaking at No. 35.[1] The album peaked at No. 11 on the Australian Kent Music Report albums chart and No. 61 on the Billboard 200.[1][2]

The Net was their first full studio release to feature John Farnham as new lead vocalist replacing Glenn Shorrock and Stephen Housden taking up the mantle of lead guitarist – it is also the last album featuring original members, Beeb Birtles (who permanently left the line-up after the US Tour in support of its release), and Derek Pellicci, who would rejoin the band in 1987.
