Seattle is known famous for many rock and roll talent. Jimi Hendrix,
Nirvana, and a band that features two sisters, Ann and Nancy Wilson, better
known as Heart. Their 1990 release, Brigade, features some heavy-hitting
rock tunes, and evens it out with some power ballads, making Brigade
an impressive album to listen to.
As the beginning of the album begins, it certainly grabs your attention
with the opening track, "Wild Child". It's a rocker, in the true rock
style Heart can provide. The main (and only) hit from this album is "All
I Want To Do Is Make Love To You", which truly is one of my all-time
favorite Heart songs.
"Secret" is a power ballad, and is similar to other power ballads
heard in previous album releases as Heart and Bad Animals.
"Tall, Dark Handsome Stranger" returns the band in the hard-rock style
they are famous for. This one is another great rocker, like the album's first
track. Turn this one up, this one rocks. Then we return to another rock/power
ballad, "I Didn't Want To Need You". It's a more harder-edge ballad as
"Secret", and definitely harder than their #1 hit "Alone" from
"The Night" is another hard-rock tune, that has the style of
Whitesnake, and alternates with some accoustic guitar to slow down the pace
in between the rocking choruses. This song is more heavy metal, rather than
hard-rock (Really, what's the differnce?) "Fallen From Grace" is
another medium-sized rocker, in the traditional Heart style again.
"Under The Sky" is more of a pleasant ballad, like the song "All I
Want To Do Is Make Love To You".
Another pop rocker is "Cruel Nights", a song that is compared to
many songs heard from their self-titled 1985 album, Heart. And then
there's another pleasant ballad, "Stranded", that calms down the pace
from the album's previous rockers. "Call Of The Wild", again, returns
Heart in their hard-rock form. "I Want Your World To Turn" is another
And since this being the month of February, a common phrase heard throughout
this month, "I Love You", ends the album as a very pleasant ballad,
a good way to end this album's mixture of pop, hard rock, power and pleasant
This mixture is great for Heart's Brigade. It is an excellent
album, where, once again, Ann & Nancy Wilson do what they always do best.
When it first started, it was a man's rock and roll world. However the
Wilson sisters can do just like any male artist can do in the rock industry:
They can perform some great beautiful songs, and most of all, they can ROCK.
