5.0 out of 5 stars DOWN TO EARTH,WITH A BANG?, 10 Jun. 2010
This review is from: Down To Earth (Audio CD)
Well no actually,this is a fabulous album which has suffered from years of abuse and unfair reviews,of course we all would have loved Ronnie to remain but thats life,back in the day the hysteria surrounding Bonnets appearance was incredible most people overlooked the fact that he could actually sing!

This album saw Ritchie pursue a more commercial approach and unfortunately most people only remember it for the 2 hit singles 'Since You've Been Gone' and 'All Night Long',two excellent slices of pop/rock which pretty much set the template for many a 'heavy' band to copy over the next few years.

However that does a dis service to the many quality tracks found on the disc,classics such as 'Eyes of the World' with its brooding intro and stunning guitar,the dynamic 'Lost in Hollywood' with Cozy battering seven shades of s**t out of his drums,the superb 'Makin Love' with lashings of Blackmore soloing which just make you smile,as for the rest classic heavy rock with 'Love's No Friend' the pick of the bunch,stunning music by a superb band,another seemless updating of the band with Bonnet performing at the top of his game ably supported by newbies Glover and Airey,of course Ritchie being Mr Picky would change the line up again,but thats another story.
