An eclectic mix of arena rock, 80s metal and new wave. Strong from start to finish with Kiss of Fire, Dance With the Devil, Phoenix Rising, Who’s Watching You, and Hell on Wings all sounding like classic 80s rock radio staples. Unfortunately poor management and marketing never allowed this gem to surface fully. If you like Glenn Hughes, Whitesnake, Hughes Thrall, etc. GET THIS ONE!
This is one of the greatest project Glen has joined. He’s work is always fine and strong, his voice needs no comment ( one of the best metal singers ). This disc is one of the finnest metal works the 80’s had underrated. Don’t expect hard guitar play, thunderous drums… no, it’s not the metal that people hate ( those who don’t like metal ), it’s a combination of strong metal (not hard) with symphonic sounds, great back sounds, melodic but never pop and nothing less than Hughes voice. If you like this kind of music, try it and tell me I’m wrong.
I bought this – on vinyl – when it first came out and I loved it.
Wasn’t too keen on the albums with other singers (sorry I just love Glen Hughes’s voice) but I got those too.
This one however is a must for anyone who likes Glen Hughes.
Glenn Hughes delivers some of the best vocal performances you will ever hear.
