I first remember hearing this album on a balmy summer night in the mid eighties. The opening riff, brilliantly executed, cut through the night as we sat tipping tins of Bud.
From this moment onwards I was addicted to this LP. Every single song is a winner, and the band mix the tempo and feel of the songs brilliantly across the whole album.
If, like me, you grew up on a diet of Journey, Loverboy, Bon Jovi and Foreigner you will simply love this offering from Van Zant. Sometimes in life something very special yet extremely rare happens and is unfortunately never repeated. This album is a classic example of that phenomena!
