Album Review

In the 1970s, Angel epitomized the type of commercial rockers who were hated by rock journalists but adored by their fans. When White Hot came out in 1977, critics wondered why anyone would spend money on Angel's ultra-slick, formulaic pop-metal, hard rock and arena rock when the punk and new wave explosions were giving us such challenging, cutting-edge risk-takers as the Clash, Elvis Costello and the Talking Heads. Truth be told, rock can and should accommodate a variety of approaches — in 1977, there was room for those who challenged and provoked and those who, like Angel, simply entertained. White Hot, Angel's best selling album, isn't the least bit challenging, but then it isn't supposed to be. Angel was unapologetically commercial, and high-gloss numbers such as "Over and Over," "Stick Like Glue," and "Hold Me, Squeeze Me" point to the fact that the East Coast band was generally good at what it did. Also likable is Angel's cover of "Ain't Gonna Eat Out My Heart Anymore," which became a moderate hit. As far as pop-metal goes, Angel didn't quite have the hooks of Kiss, Sweet, or Cheap Trick; but while White Hot isn't fantastic, it's decent. If you want to hear one of the 1970s bands that helped pave the way for Bon Jovi, Winger, Warrant, and numerous other MTV-friendly hair bands that were huge in the 1980s, White Hot is worth a listen.

The one that Should've Been

This should've been Angels crowning moment. On their fourth release they attempted to go a little more mainstream and gain the attention of the radio listeners. Pop and disco ruled the airwaves and this style of music was not finding it's way to the masses. Unless you were an already established rock act it was becoming very difficult to get radio stations to "gamble" on you. They concentrated on playing the same 25 to 40 "safe" songs hourly. This album simply put is AWESOME. Don't Leave Me Lonely, Hold Me Squeeze Me, Got Love If You Want It and You Could Lose Me are guitar / keyboard rock masterpieces. Don't Leave Me Lonely will have you singing along and many days and nights it would be cranked in my car (on 8 track). That song should've been Angels biggie. Another rocker to raise the volume to was Over and Over that has Barry Brandt's pounding drums and cowbell intro and Punky Meadows driving guitar chords. The Winter Song was a minor hit and if you are lucky you can find their performance in the Dick Clark Show archieves playing this song. Overall, this album was "it" for me in my high school days. This was the album that summed up what I thought rock was all about. Great guitar riffs, entwined with futuristic sounding keyboards, excellent vocal harmonies, and great songs to sing to.

Their Best

I have loved this album since Jr. high school. "The Winter Song" was a minor hit at the time. A very solid rock album. In response to the question, "Telephone Exchange" was on the "On Earth as it is in Heaven" album. Very rare and hard to find.Try Ebay, but be ready to fork out a few hundred.

Great Album

"winter Song " & "Flying with Broken Wings" are 2 excellent songs, as one of the prior reviews states , I listened to this religiously in Jr High school and was VERY happy to find it on here!! Do yourself a favor pick up at least 1 song , if not the whole album!!
