I say switching gears because this is often what this 13th studio release from Heart does, it presents us with a few different sounds and styles throughout. And for me that’s the appeal of this strong record from the band. I never get tired or bored of the same thing over and over again. It opens up with a strong track, There You Go, which has a bit of an upbeat groovy sound to it with a steady acoustic guitar riff taking us through. Next up we switch gears for a hard hitting rock track called WTF which fits very well with the band’s 70’s classics Magic Man, Barracuda and Crazy On You. Switch gears again and we are listening to a slow and sultry title track.
On this record we are hearing a bit of hard rock, a touch of folk, and a dash of blues. Anne’s vocals sound as great as ever as well as the guitar work from sister
. Even though there are different sounds and styles presented it all blends together nicely making for a great overall appeal. As noted, there is a touch of hard rock here, but this album as a whole is on the mellower side. But if you are in the mood to wind down and drift off these songs are great. Nancy
There are songs I like better than others on here but I can play this one from start to finish, no filler.
