Retro Spins: The Firm - The Firm

What the heck is going on around here? I can't find a solid 80's album to save my life. Today's entry, self titled The Firm, is no exception. For a super group featuring the likes of Paul Rodgers, Jimmy Page, Chris Slade and Tony Franklin, I expected far better.

Of the nine songs on the album, Radioactive and (to an extent) the cover of You've Lost That Loving Feeling, were the only stand outs. The rest of it was a hard pass.

What I disliked the most about this 1985 released album was that it sounded very 90's. Grungy almost - A sound that definitely doesn't appeal too much to me. How they pulled this off five years before the decade that ruined music was beyond me, but that's exactly what I felt like I was listening to.

I've got to dig deep for the next album. I really do. I can't keep wasting time on bad music. There are so many other things I'd rather be doing.

  1. I was going to say, go listen to Def Leppard's Hysteria but you already did a review. You know what - you don't have to do a review - just kick back and listen to awesomeness for an hour.
