Absolutely is the third studio album by Australian Indie pop, rock band Eurogliders, released in October 1985. It peaked at #7 on the Australian Kent Music Report albums chart and remained in the charts for 47 weeks; it spawned three top ten hit singles, "We Will Together" in April, "The City of Soul" in September and "Can't Wait to See You" in November. Two further singles, "Absolutely" and "So Tough" appeared in 1986.
At the height of the band's success, Eurogliders Grace Knight and Bernie Lynch reconciled their relationship and were married in 1985, although the union was short-lived. Despite their marital separation, they stayed together in the band for another four years.
