Great Band!! The ‘Burns Like a Star’ was their Best album…Classic!! Features the great Bruce Gowdy on Lead Guitar who went on to form Unruly Child with Mark Free.

Great Heavy AOR Pomp from the mid 80’s; has melody, tight harmonies, high production values, proper vocals – it is not surprising that there is a nostalgia for this material and it seems fashion is changing back for the better these days..

This is an awesome album! I bought this album when it first came out in the early 80. I got this album back in 1984. I think it was after seeing the video for Break Down The Wall, a classic rock song with a great riff and passionate vocals. I soon discovered a few other gems, namely the excellent ballad, Life Is Too Lonely, and catchy rockers Hold It & I Hate To Sleep Alone. There is not a single bad song on the album. Bruce Gowdy was an underrated guitarist/songwriter. The next album, Let Them Talk, was great, but then Lenny Wolf moved on to Kingdom Come. Grab this album if you can Stone fury – life is too lonely: (4.18…whole clip)

Burns like a Star for one rocks to no end when played loud on a quality sound system that can play loud without sacrificing sound quality!

Anyone who is plugged into the history of melodic rock will know the Lenny Wolf story. And indeed the Bruce Gowdy story. Two gifted, driven musicians with talent to burn. Their band, Stone Fury, debuted with the Burns Like A Star album in 1984. The critics loved it, the public a bit less 😉

Thirty Three years provides all the perspective we need to conclude that the critics were right. Probably one of the best melodic rock albums of the eighties, it is undeniably heavy and infectiously, aggressively tuneful. Produced and engineered by the legendary Andy Johns along with Wolf and Gowdy, together they astutely combine rehearsed studio precision with the blood pumping body heat of rock’n’roll, bringing out the best in Wolf and Gowdy’s songwriting, transcending the AOR formula prevalent at the time.

There’s an intense, operatic thread running through the album, from opener, ‘Break Down These Walls’ to closer ‘Shannon You Lose’. It gleams with imagination and inventiveness. It creates adult oriented rock songs in ‘Life Is Too Lonely’ and ‘Hold It’, reaching out for that awesome melodic moment. For nine tracks and 39 minutes it seems entirely within their grasp.

Elsewhere, a couple of hulking, pile-driving rock bruisers, ‘Tease’ and ‘Mama’s Love’ – channelling Van Halen and The Rolling Stones – show that the duo were just as much in touch with the zeitgeist as they were with the blues based history of rock’n’roll. He didn’t realise it perhaps, but with these songs, Wolf was well on his way to the “Plant plagiarist” accusations that would dog his early work with Kingdom Come.
