I’d forgotten about this LP until just recently. Yes, I’m showing my age kids – I used the term LP . After I pulled this album out of my vinyl stash last month. I threw it on the platter and put the needle to it In listening to it, I’m blown away how good it is over 10 years later. Truely great music is timeless and this album qualifies for this hands down. The album has no weak material on it. Once you get into “Sun King” and past “Fire Woman,” you are on ride that makes you stay on till the LP is over. Bob Rock does a first class job in the production and Ian … oh,how can the boy wail. I purchased the CD last month because of it being remastered. In listening to the CD, I’ve appreciated how well this effort flows from stem to stern. It builds a mood and holds it tight. The CD with its seamless track list allows the flow and mood to really shine. I would strongly recommend to anyone wanting to get into essential 1980’s hard rock to snag this baby. All the notorious 1980’s hairspray and glam is left in the dust here. This is an album that harks to the days with rock meant something. Check it out – its class all the way.
