Heart (Self-Titled) 1985





A little back-story for regarding Heart. I knew them prior to the release of their Self-Title album, but I was never a fan. By that, I mean I didn't own or go out seeking their back catalog. But I would definitely listen to their biggest hits on the radio like Magic Man, Barracuda, etc....I was still a product of basically being a Metal-head and although I liked Classic Rock at the time, it was still out of my wheelhouse. So, 1985 rolls around and what happens? I jump on board with what it regarding as the most 'pop-oriented' Heart album at that time. Go figure.

So, the first time I saw the video for What About Love, I immediately was hooked on the song of the summer. It was STUCK in my head and I played that video over and over. That song itself brings back a lot of memories, namely my days down at the beach, hitting the boardwalk. Of course with that song I would eventually get the album and it was chock-full of hit songs after hit songs. And to my amazement, there were a couple of "metal" songs that got an enthusiastic thumbs up from me. If Looks Could Kill was a great wa to open the album with and it rocked. But when I heard The Wolf, it just blew me away. It still does.

This album is in fact a Greatest Hits album for me. It's got pretty much an entire albums worth of hit songs that you know and love. Ann Wilson shines big time here, but Nancy Wilson gets her moment as well with These Dreams. They were anchored by the incredible guitar work of Howard Leese who too me is one of the most underrated guitar players of all time. As great as the Wilson sisters are, he elevates the band to epic proportions.
