"The Fire Inside"
Bob Seger & The Silver Bullet Band albums made their peak during the late
1970s, and 1980s. By 1991, The Fire Inside may not have had a big impact
as his previous decades of albums, but Seger's music has always been
entertaining from a man who came from Michigan, and having a very unique voice.
According to sources, "Real Love" was the album's only hit,
but there are many other songs that could of easily have, if not better.
"Take A Chance" is a great song to start off the Seger album,
and could be a radio favorite. "Sightseeing" is an average song, yet
"Real At The Time" is a fine number, and much better than
The one song that has enough spark and fire is the album's title track.
It defines the 1980s sound of Bob Seger. And how this song wasn't the main
hit, is beyond me; it's a great album track.
A very impressive song is heard in "New Coat Of Paint." It's
New Orleans blues/jazz, featuring some great piano work, and if Bruce
Springsteen's "The Fever" is one of your favorite songs, then you'll
easily add this one to your list.
If you like Seger in a more harder rock edge, "Which Way" has a
great rock blues beat, where "The Mountain" is a more eerie rock blues
There are the common ballads by Bob Seger on this album -- the acclaimed
"The Real Love;" and a song that even Rod Stewart could of picked up --
"Always In My Heart"; and another good ballad -- "The Long Way Home."
"Blind Love" features a more country sound, and the album ends with the
familiar early sound of Seger, "She Can't Do Anything Wrong."
Whether you're a complete Bob Seger fan, or just the common one, The
Fire Inside is an entertaining album for the Seger fan, and any rock fan in
general. The Fire Inside may not have been exceptional as his albums
of the 1970s and 1980s, yet Bob Seger's music has always been exceptional.
Like many albums, there are many songs on this album that could have acclaimed
more popularity for radio airplay. Seger's hard-working-man style of music
has always been and up-and-down career for Seger, yet in the end, Seger proves
that his Rock and Roll music will never be forgotten, as he once sang in his
1979 hit, "Rock And Roll Never Forgets."
