5.0 out of 5 stars Do ya wanna ROCK?, 7 Feb. 2004
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Streets Of Fire (Audio CD)
WHAT an album! I bought the vinyl, ooooh, years ago, now I've the CD, I can hear things my system NEVER could bring out. All the tracks are good to superb. "Nowhere Fast" is just sublime, who came up with that idea for a song? For sure, Steinman really does it justice, all the way from that thundering bass/snare intro, to the final and climactic crescendo at the end. If this track doesn't get the old tooties tapping... Then you're dead!
Steinman's dirty great hoofprints are all OVER this CD, but that, for once, makes it."Sorcerer" is a wonderfully over the top track, loads of "Dungeons And Dragons", lost loves, muscular heroes, swords everwhere... wonderful stuff! Then you get Ry Cooder bluegrassin' about "Hold That Snake", and as for the Blasters, oh boy, pure and unadulerated Rock 'n' Roll in it's purest form, they don't half "blast" it out, more's he pity they have had so much trouble with their lead guitarist and song writer Dave Alvin who fought with his brother, so much so, he quit and left the band all the poorer. Listen to "One Bad Stud" and "Blue Shadows" and cut yourself some rug, daddio!
For the Soul orientated amongst you, "Countdwn To Love" and "I Can Dream About You" are not to be missed, espescialy the latter, this is a Soul classic, one to take your "best beloved" to the table with a stunning meal lovingly prepared by yourself... Don't bother with a sweet, it won't be needed.....!!!
I love this CD, and when I can, the controls are turned up to 13 and the speakers are ROCKED off their stands. Ooooh my ears, but... No pain, no gain, so get gaining!
