Back To Basics!!!

This album was a nice surprise, and back to basics for Bad Company. Don't get me wrong, the albums that featured Brian Howe were very good and gave the band new life after Paul Rodgers departure. The new singer, Robert Hart, sounds a lot like Paul Rodgers while Brian Howe would have been a better fit for a band like Foreigner. Needless to say, Bad Company's lineup features Rick Wills (Foreigner/Peter Frampton) on bass, Dave Colwell on guitars plus mainstays Simon Kirke and Mick Ralphs. If you don't want to buy the whole album (which is very good), get the following cuts to start: "Pretty Woman" and "Down & Dirty"...nuff said!!!

cardozo is cool

beastly!!

Back to the 1970's

Back to basics approach and back to the "signature" 70’s sound minus vocalist Paul Rodgers & bassist Boz Burrell (RIP).
Robert Hart (very talented vocalist/songwriter) does his absolute best Paul Rodgers impersonation and the riffs and solos from Mick Ralphs & Dave Colwell are plentiful & brilliant throughout.
However, some of these songs definitely come off as rewrites of former hits.
“Company of strangers” is an ode to “Bad Company”
“Gimme Gimme” is a thinly veiled rewrite of “Can’t get enough”
“Where I belong” almost sounded like a spin-off of the Free song “Get where I belong”
That said I believe this album had more high points than low points.
The standouts are “Abandoned and alone”, “Pretty Woman”, “Down and Dirty”, and “Dance with Devil”
It’s a good Bad Company album but such an about face from the Howe’s Company years that they probably lost some of the newer fans they obtained from 1986-1993 in the process.
It was interesting experiment to try and release an album in 1995 as if it were still 1975.
You just knew it would never succeed on a large scale but you sure did have a good time cranking it in the house or car.
Time always separates the good from the bad.
Perhaps, if this album would have been released in 1975-1979, it might have been different story.
If you like the Paul Rodgers fronted Bad Company, you would enjoy this release.
If you like the Brian Howe fronted Bad Company; you may want to stick to the 1986-1993 output.
