It´s always interesting when you get new releases from old bands
that had their glory days in the 80´s. Sometimes it a rather sad
experience when they can´t live up to what they once was. FM
was during the late part of the 80´s one of the biggest AOR bands
around so it was really great to be able to rule out that they
weren´t a part of the bands that had lost it all. It´s almost the other
way around that they have become better then before.
“Heroes and Villains” is a real time machine that takes you back in
time to the hay days of the 80´s. You get it all, the up tempo songs
and the ballads. “Digging up the Dirt” sounds like something that
Foreigner could have recorded. “You´re the best thing about me”
is something that Bryan Adams could have done in the 80´s.
“Life is a Highway” is a great summer song. “Incredible” and
“Walking With Angels” are awesome tender ballads.
Well you get the picture. This is a absolute feel good collection of
music that speaks to all your emotions. FM shows that they still are
as good as they ever been, they know this genre better then most
other bands ever will. It don´t get much better then this.
My personal favorites of the album at the time is “Shape I´m In”
and “Somedays I Only Want To Rock n Roll”.
