This is a pretty nice album. Slight change from Michael Bolotin. Some of his very early work some of which is actually pretty good. It's a good way to show just how far Michael Bolton has come. Definatley a good choice for you bigger Bolton fans!

The Arena Rocker That Got Away 30 Jan 2000
By Jeremy - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Pop (no pun intended) in Michael Bolton's 1983 album - his first for Columbia - and the husbands of those middle-aged, die-hard housewives may look up from their newspaper. This is NOT recognizable Michael Bolton, for the most part. It is NOT for the adult contemporary market. It is a metal-tinged rock album that should have made Bryan Adams and Journey quiver in their spandex. Critics argue that each song on this album is identically produced. While I agree that the overall concept rarely strayed from guitar-driven, drum-pounding, angelic chorus laden rock tunes, I believe it works for the style. Every song maintains its own identity, with Bolton belting out arguably his best vocals ever. "Fool's Game", the leadoff track, was a hit on AOR playlists around the world. Why don't we remember? Because it was AOR, and it didn't catch on for another couple of years. Bolton was ahead of his time, to put it simply. There are other highlights on the album - the mellower but no-less-rocking "She Did the Same Thing," "Hometown Hero" - which I feel is the album's strongest point - the fast-paced and melodic "Paradise," and even the slightly softer "Carrie," with its enticing chorus that stays in your head for hours on end. So while he was churning out songs for established artists, Michael Bolton was making waves in the AOR world. This album is every indication of this, with a strong set of material and a great performance by an all-too-often criticized artist.

Bolton's rockin out the tunes! Good Aor/Melodic metal! 4 Mar 2005
By Bass player Brad - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This was Bolton's 3rd album ever and it is certainly a breath of fresh air from that Bolton all those old chicks talk about!So listen up all you Aor listeners this is the Bolton that should have been.Hard rock/Aor.Bolton belts out some pretty good rockers on this release.

1.Fools Game(9/10)This song really grows on you.A great Aor metal gem.The guitars and keyborads sound great!You should see the video,you wouldn't even know it's Bolton!Big Hair,Guitar Leather and all!

2.She did the Same Thing(9/10)Another solid ballad rocker under Bolton's belt.Kicks the crap out of his adult contemporary stuff!

3.Hometown Hero(7/10)Not bad,Solid rocker with more guitar solos from Bolton!

4.Can't Hold on,Can't let Go(8/10)Cool song.More great guitar work!

5.Fighting for My Life(8/10)Another solid rockin song!

6.Paradise(7/10)Pretty good upbeat song,more guitar work from Bolton!

7.Back in my Arms Again(6/10)Little below par.Still a fun song though.Better than today's music by miles!

8.Carrie(10/10)One of the catchiest songs.The chorus is great and so is everything else on this track.If you love the 80's this will appeal to you largely!Suberb song, you can't help but sing a long with it!

9.I Almost believed You(4/10)This is the worst song on here.A very slow ballad!

I will say in the end this cd is worth owning.80's melodic metal fans and Aor fans should like this.It's very cool to hear Bolton before he became Bolton.

Michael Bolton Rocks! Well, sort of... 10 Jan 2008
By Justin G. - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This may seem hard to believe (or downright absurd), but there was a time when skullet-wearing crooner Michael Bolton was considered a hard rock singer. Shocking but true, a few years ago I came across a heavy metal sampler album (and I mean a vinyl album) from the early 80's that featured one or two of his songs. I'd never go so far as to call him metal (the universe might implode), but I'll admit that his self-titled 1983 album was much more rocking than I expected.

The album is essentially an AOR album along the lines of Survivor or Loverboy, though nowhere near as good as those bands. Bolton and a competent crew of session musicians and songwriters (including Bob and Bruce Kulick and Aldo Nova) served up nine fairly solid rock songs, complete with catchy guitar hooks, solos, and a liberal use of keyboards. And to be quite honest, Bolton's voice is pretty well suited for this kind of music.

The rock phase wouldn't last, and Bolton soon became renowned for crooning sappy ballads to millions of housewives. I suppose he laughed all the way to the bank though. Still, if you're a fan of 80's AOR, this is an album worth checking out.

Michael Bolton Rocks! 17 May 2008
By Gitters - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Yeah, Michael Bolton's 1983 album for Columbia records rocks! This is not the same music most people know Bolton for. On here, he sounds like an arena rocker that would appeal to fans of groups such as Foreigner, Journey, Loverboy, Bryan Adams, etc, more than the soft rock crowd. Fools Game, the albums lead off track is a great song. Really only one of the many great songs on this album. It's too bad, that the people who would enjoy this album, would be the same people, who probably wouldn't go near a Michael Bolton cd.

File under 80s Heavy Metal 2 Dec 2007
By Dr. Pony - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This is a fantastic album by a dude who decided to abandon his roots, his fans, and make money singing wussy ballads.

Every single song on this album is fantastic, including "I Almost Believed You" which, although a ballad, is your typical 80s metal ballad which surprisingly rocks pretty good. "Fools Game" is the shining moment and the catchiest song on here, with Michael himself playing Lead Guitar. Pretty much every song on here has a catchy, rockin' guitar riff that will have you turning up the volume on your stereo.

Some of the notable musicians who played on this album are Aldo Nova, Bob and Bruce Kulick (who both worked with KISS), and Chuck Burgi (who worked with Rainbow and Blue Oyster Cult).

If you love 80s metal and classic rock, do yourself a favor and pick up this album. You won't be disappointed!
