What else can be said about HEART? The Wilson sisters' band is the greatest female fronted Melodic Hard Rock act ever.
Like its two predecessors, their 1990 album "Brigade" was a commercial smash, reaching number 2 on the Billboard Album Chart and delivering another wonderful slice of slick Melodic Rock / AOR / rock&pop.
Including songs penned / co-penned by the likes of Robert John "Mutt" Lange, Holly Knight, Sammy Hagar, Diane Warren or the fantastic AOR factory of Tom Kelly / Billy Steinberg plus Richie Zito's out-of-this-world production, and you have a winner.
On songs like "Stranded", "Secret", "I Want Your World to Turn", the rocking "Tall, Dark Handsome Stranger" or the mega-hit "All I Wanna Do Is Make Love to You", female-Rock vocals do not get any better.
Although my favorite Heart albums are the previous 'Bad Animals' and 1985s 'Heart', in my opinion "Brigade" features the best Ann Wilson vocal performances of her career.
This out of print "Brigade [Deluxe Japanese 2CD Package]" came out in 1991, packed in velvet-textured slipcase, and with a bonus CD including 3 bonus tracks. And these songs worth your attention, believe me.
You have the awesome AOR of "Cruel Tears" co-written with Mark Spiro, the super ballad "(I'll) Never Stop Loving You" penned by AOR stalwarts David Cassidy / John Wetton, and the midtempo "The Will to Love", again from the Tom Kelly / Billy Steinberg pen.
"Brigade" is a must have in your Melodic Rock / AOR collection, and this Deluxe Japanese 2CD Package, even more.
