I didn't think Heart could match 2010's superb 'Red Velvet Car', but with 'Fanatic' the Wilson sisters prove once again that their talent for musical composition, poetry, and amazing vocals is second to none in the rock world.

Here we have ten tracks that demonstrate the real groove which is the heart of Heart - whether it be grungy rock and roll like the title track, or the deeply felt ballad of 'Rock Deep Vancouver', a banjo-themed duet with Sarah Mclachlan on 'Walkin' Good", or the Led Zep psych-rock of 'Corduroy Road' - the theme is the same: it's about stripping away the auto-tuning and the showbiz and letting the soul speak out and rainbow the deep passion these women have for their lives, their music, and their world.

Yes, this is a louder, rockier affair on the whole than the last album - 'Mashallah' is a breathtaking wallop of hard rock - but that doesn't mean any of the power and emotion of Ann's words and Nancy's playing is lost at all. Quite the opposite. It's also fantastic to hear them trade vocals on a couple of tracks like '59 Crunch' - they really should do it more often.

On this evidence, it's impossible to imagine a day when these women ever do anything less than wonderful, or end their creative genius. Their energy seems endlessly undiminished, Ann's voice raises the hairs on the back of your neck as much as ever, and with stand out tracks like 'Dear Old America', and 'Million Miles' which showcase the melodic wizardry of Nancy Wilson, the world is sure to 'take heart' once again.

Love this album, one of their best in my humble opinion. A grungier sound which after 40 years really surprised me. A million miles is my fave track. Would be in my all time top 10 Heart tracks

Any Heart release, however bad it could turn out to be, is always going to get some totally over the top reviews from a truly fanatical number of fans who refuse to take ANY criticism of whatever the Wilson sisters do. ("Oh dear, we mustn't say anything even slightly bad about OUR group", etc.) They have even been known to make playground threats to critics (e.g. "We got your number boy!").

Whilst devotion is admirable (up to a point), sometimes their praise is so silly it makes them look ridiculous. I'm sensing that a little already here, with some reviewers saying "Ann's voice is as strong as ever", or whatever. Pure nonsense!

I think Ann Wilson is the best rock singer there has ever been (and probably will be), with Nancy not too far behind as it happens! She has given me so much enjoyment, but I think even SHE would have to say that her voice cannot do it all it used to. I could give sample lines where she chooses not to use pitch and vibrato like she once did, but would those silly fanatics even understand? All I will say to them is this : Ann's voice is not what it used to be but guess what? She's STILL better than 99.99% of her contemporaries today! I'm STILL a champion of her talents, albeit a bit more realistic than some people out there!

So what is the album like? In summary, the album as a whole sounds more in keeping with "Red Velvet Car" than "Jupiters Darling" (unfortunately). They still seem to be experimenting with fresh (to them) sounds. (Thought they'd exhausted all that on the "Strange Euphoria" box set?) Yes, some riffs ARE heavy (as they had promised us), but it's often a punky, "garage band" type of heavy, which, when it come from Heart, just comes across as "badly produced".

This is a great rock album. Thankfully the Wilson sisters and their band have forgone their 80's and 90's penchant for sacrificing quality in order to gain hit singles.

From the start of the album, the style is heavy, sometimes angry, sometimes humorous. The goal here is clearly to provide a hard rocking album created out of personal experiences of the band leaders Ann and Nancy Wilson. Much like the band's classic 70s output, this is not Top 40 drivel or music that will appeal to listeners wanting cotton candy music. It will, however, appeal to fans who want a good hard rock album with a bit of darkness and plenty of wails from the best female rock vocalist in the business.

Heart is a polarizing band in some ways. Those who became fans in the 80s don't seem to understand or appreciate 70s Heart, and those who became fans in the 70s see the 80s output as a "sellout" (similar to Aerosmith, KISS, and Van Halen). "Fanatic" will no doubt appeal to the latter audience, leaving the former disappointed.

If I have an issue with the album, it's some of the lyrics. Most of the lyrics are fine and some are great, but "59 Crunch" sounds like purposeful nonsense written simply so the song wouldn't end up an instrumental. Filler lyrics at best. Otherwise, "Fanatic" is a great album in my humble opinion.
