10 from 5, To Be Accurate
on April 30, 2003
On first glimpse, this is a good retrospective of the Paul Rodgers years. With the hits, "Feel Like Makin' Love", "Rock and Roll Fantasy", "Can't Get Enough", and, of course, "Bad Company", this should satisfy casual Company fans not looking to spend a lot of money.
So why only three stars?
I'm glad you asked.
The problem isn't presence. The presence makes for a satisfying listen. The problem IS absence.
I mean, come on! How can you have a Bad Company hits compilation without the coolest of all bass-driven songs, "Burning Sky"? And what about "Rock Steady" and "Young Blood"? Those are at least as good as "Electric Land!"
It would be a bad business decision to put all of their worthwhile songs on one album, but ten is just too few.
Again, 10 from 6 is by no means a bad album, but it doesn't do the band justice, either. It's a worthwhile buy. Just don't make it the only one in your Bad Company collection!
