On paper the idea of former Free and Bad Company lead vocalist Paul Rodgers teaming up with former Yardbirds and Led Zeppelin lead guitarist Jimmy Page sounds pretty damn good. But Rodgers and Page co-write only five of the nine songs on this album and only one of those, "Satisfaction Guaranteed," is one of the three best songs on the album. The other two are "Radioactive," which Rodgers wrote by himself, and the group's cover of "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling." In the end, this album seems more like a Bad Company album, a collection of hits and misses, which is not a bad legacy. You just have to understand that there are legions of us who would have loved to have heard lightning strike twice with Jimmy Page.

I have this album on cassette and when the opportunity came to purchase I jumped at the chance. Believe you me, it's absolutely brilliant. The singing by Paul is some of his best, and the musicianship of Jimmy and the band is exemplary.
If you've never heard of The Firm, repair that omission now! Not Bad Company, but more, not Led Zep but gentler. A worthy addition to anybodys collection. Do yourself a favour, buy this album and give your ears a treat!

Paul Rodgers and Jimmy Page on one album so you know it's going to be good, This isn't a classic but nevertheless it's a good solid and varied rock album, Stand out tracks are Money Can't buy an excellent penned Rodgers track and the Zep like Midnight Moonlight which closes the album in fantastic fashion.

this band did everything right on this release. It's a powerhouse of a release for rock fans. The songs are well played and sung. It's like bad zep or something. It had two hit singles on it too. "radioactive' was the big one here. It a very solid band that made this one. The firm was also incredible live with a laser show that went around the lead guitarist in cone as he played. A powerful debut cd that wasn't matched by it's follow up probably. Here's the songlist.
Closer
2. Make Or Break
3. Someone To Love
4. Together
5. Radioactive
6. You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling
7. Money Can't Buy
8. Satisfaction Garanteed
9. Midnight Moonlight

this is sad statement that the uk is not releasing these on their shores. what's the problem? too much crappy electronic music?

Very good Cd But not on par with Paul's Solo work or Bad Company/Free, enjoy listening to it but to me it has something missing that I can't put my finger on. Listen to clips before buying

The sound of Tony Franklins fretless bass ads a nice flavour to this Zeppelin/Free sound. Midnight Moonlight Lady is the lost Zeppelin tune The Swan Song.

Not the best work from Rodgers or Page. One or two good tracks with a Bad Company flavour but worth a purchase if the price is right.
