Avis sur l’album

This optimistically titled solo album found Bad Company's guitar ace treading a softer, less insistent path from his platinum day job (although the band's skin-basher, Simon Kirke, makes an appearance). However, the results failed to translate among diehards still pining for the "Can't Get Enough" era. Taking the hint, Ralphs joined his megastar neighbor David Gilmour for the latter guitarist's equally anemically received tour without the Pink Floyd banner. Even so, Ralphs' album deserved a better reception than it received, for this is the sound of someone enjoying himself, trends be damned. He convincingly dishes out low-key country ("Last Chance Saloon"), glistening pop ("All It Takes"), melodic ballads ("Another Lonely Day"), and the breezy title track's fleet-footed jazz fusion, which wouldn't be amiss on a Crusaders album. The ever-dutiful Ralphs does throw the faithful a crunchy bone or two on "When the Revolution Comes" and "Rock Fever," although they sound more reserved than his parent band's fare. Angel Air has included ten demos and rough mixes. While not essential listening, they do lend an appropriate "you are there" feel to the recording (and two solid unreleased tunes, "Rock N Roller" and "All Across the Nile"). There's also an illuminating booklet packed with choice Ralphs-isms, whether he discusses the album-oriented rock leanings of "On the Run" ("quite American, quite bland") or his aborted solo career ("my mate Dave Gilmour said, 'Stop wasting your time and money'"). Such candor is refreshing, since Ralphs' lyrics will hardly set the world alight, nor do his vocals prove more than serviceable, as his shaky attempt at the 1962 soul chestnut "Hey Baby" demonstrates. ("Shame I can't sing," his booklet notes cheerfully observe.) Bad Company freaks probably still won't make sense of the proceedings here, but aficionados of melodic, well-crafted pop should definitely find this reissue.

Mick Ralphs was the lead guitarist for not one, but two of album rock's most storied bands: underappreciated glam rock legends Mott the Hoople, and the far more commercially successful Bad Company. Born in 1948 in Hereford, England (near Wales), Ralphs played with a blues-rock group called the Buddies (who released a single in 1964) in his teens, and then moved on to the mod-styled Doc Thomas Group, whose self-titled 1967 debut album was issued only in Italy.
