I sure miss the mature, rockin' talented women of the 70's, 80's to late 80's ( Heart and Pat Benatar specifically).These gals could belt out with the vocals and their wild feminine charms without ever becoming sugar coated caricatures of pop music...
Then,Myles shows up to prove that they still existed towards the closing of the 80's.After Alannah's explosive chart topping album from '89 it seemed she was destined for more success.After the Black Velvet hit, she released a couple of lesser well known and harshly critiqued albums...
Alannah Myles debut, containing Black Velvet ,showcased her as a sexy rock n' roll siren with sultry throaty vocals without coming across as dry sandpaper but rather smooth silk. There were no filler tracks or songs penned at the last minute. Each song, while collectively they worked together, had it's own unique flavor...

Format: Audio CD
With a hard rock bluesy guitar that later isn't a bad imitation of early ZZ Top, and a rousing cry in that rough voice of hers, kind of a more refined variation on Joan Jett, Alannah Myles kicks off her debut album with "Still Got This Thing For You."
That's followed by the second single, "Love Is", which is punctuated by a throbbing bass and a 80's hard-rock guitar. Here's how she defines love: "Love is ( love is )/Heaven to the lonely/Show me/What you want me to do/Cause love is/What I got for you"
The slow bluesy "Black Velvet", with more of that punctuated bass, is of course, hands down, the best song here, and the one that topped the charts in 1990. Who can forget that chorus: "Black velvet and that little boy's smile/Black velvet with that slow southern style/A new religion that'll bring ya to your knees/Black velvet if you please." There's another lyric that's visually cool: "The sun is settin' like molasses in the sky." However, don't let naysayers tell you she was a one-hit wonder. There's more great stuff on this album and on her followup, the more melancholy Rockinghorse.
"Rock This Joint" is the hardest rocking song here even replete with Def Leppard-like backup vocals. There is a slight nod to "Pour Some Sugar On Me" while that ZZ Top-like guitar plays. She wants to rock the joint to the point that, "I wanna die with a smile on my face."
That is followed by the first ballad and third single, "Lover Of Mine" which deserved a place in the Top Ten at the very least. Her voice when smooth, shows she has slow-song talents. The chorus and guitar at the end puts shifts into minor power ballad mode.
The mid-paced "Kick Start My Heart" has shades of New Jersey-era Bon Jovi, specifically "Bad Medicine" down to the synthesizer, horns, and guitar.

I first heard of Alannah Myles by hearing Black Velvet on the radio. I loved the song. A friend loaned me the CD, and I was surprised to hear that most of the songs are hard, raunchy rock! I soon bought my own copy of the CD, and play it a lot. Also like the next CDs, Rockinghorse and Alannah. .Alannah Myles should be a lot better known than she is.

This is a great female rock album. Alanah delivers rock on this album that is definitely hard at times, but never turns into just loud noise. Quite the contrary, the album is full of good rock tunes. Alanah's voice is powerful and with the right attitude. The album starts out strong, rocking with Still Got This Thing, Love Is, and Black Velvet. Rock This Joint is a bit commonplace. Lover of Mine shows Alanah can do a softer, slower tune. The album gets hard again with Kick Start My Heart and If You Want To. Some mellower tunes close the album. Excellent stuff. Where's Alanah now?

Format: Audio Cassette
Alannah Myles is thirty-nine minutes and nineteen seconds and was released on January 1, 1989. Her self titled debut album reached #5 on the U.S. Billboard 200 Album chart and went Platinum. Black Velvet won a Grammy Award for Best Female Rock Performance in 1989. Four songs were released from the album and only two charted in the United States. The music is in the style of Canadian country rock. Her voice sounds like a female Rod Stewart. Still I did like the music on the cassette and I am giving Alannah Myles an AA++.

I really enjoyed listening to this album a long time ago - enough to replace my worn out tape with a CD. I like every track on it and its refreshing to find an album that lives up to the standard and the promise of the first released track. If you're looking for a really raunchy rock CD, this has to be it. All I can say is - what happened to Alannah Myles after this?
