iTunes Review

For their fourth studio album, 1977’s Burnin’ Sky, Bad Company continued with brawny, soulful hard rock that spotlighted lead singer Paul Rodgers’ prototypical 1970s hard rock vocals. Without the aid of a blockbuster single, the album suffered commercially and critically. However, while no single tune captured the imagination of the masses like their hits — “Can’t Get Enough,” “Feel Like Makin’ Love” — this is still a solid collection of blues-influenced hard rock. The title track is an ominous beginning, working with clear, focused lead guitar lines and carefully administered rhythm guitar chords from Mick Ralphs. “Morning Sun” throws in acoustic 12-string. “Like Water” is an admirable slow blues. “Heartbeat” thumps with the trademarked Bad Company swagger. “Master of Cermony” is a two-chord guitar-organ vamp with Rodgers singing in his most worn out, mocking tone. “Everything I Need” employs bassist Boz Burrell and drummer Simon Kirke to the tightest of their abilities and includes some bizarre spoken word bits that, along with the goofy minute-and-a-half of  “Knapsack,” show off the group’s much hidden silly side.

1977 was my year...I still had hair, coveted my brand new '77 Monte Carlo tricked out with mags and air shocks, and soon on my way to California. I don't agree with the review AT ALL! If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Patsy Cline didn't have to change her style to keep an audience, neither does Bad Company.

Ahhh ode to my teens

This it THE album of my 15 th year on this ROCKED then....and it still rocks !

Burnin' Sky burned my stylus and speakers

Few albums hit me like this one. It has always been my favorite. I had been listening to these guys all through high school. I was so taken by them that I bought all the Free albums too. But when Burnin' Sky was released I knew these guy had hit their peaks, like the eagles would with Hotel California. The title track belongs on any top 100 rocks song list you wish to draft. Thank you iTunes for finally making this available here (along with the resto of thier 70's realiease). Bad Company is one of Rock N Rolls greatist bands their availability here was long over due.

Formed in 1973, the British hard rock outfit Bad Company was a supergroup comprised of ex-King Crimson bassist Boz Burrell, former Mott the Hoople guitarist Mick Ralphs, and singer Paul Rodgers and drummer Simon Kirke, both previous members of Free. Powered by Rodgers' muscular vocals and Ralphs' blues-based guitar work, Bad Company was the first group signed to Led Zeppelin's Swan Song vanity label.
