5.0 out of 5 stars Should Have Been a Hit March 12, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I don't know what more you could say about John Waites distinct voice. He sings rock like nobodys business. Ballads? You bet. I spent many summer days driving around, windows down, and this little gem of a cd cranked. This cd is a little tighter than the first. Song writing a little more focused. The first almost felt like it was pieced together from different cds. It's been a long time since I bought a cd I could listen to all the way through and not get bored. They definitely left us on a high note. This cd, and others like it are why I don't listen to radio any more. Get a mind of your own and buy this cd. It's worth it. Take it from David Bowie..."I am the DJ, I am what I play"

5.0 out of 5 stars Melodic Rock at its best May 28, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
John waites excellent voice combines with the superb guitar playing of Neil Schon, of which some of his best work is on this album. No fillers on the entire album, from the rockin 'Straight to the heart' & 'So this is Eden' to the haunting 'Savage Blue', an excellent album for the car or gym, I never tire of listening to it. Give it a listen. Shame they broke up.

4.0 out of 5 stars Typically good rock to listen to... January 20, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Bad English primary attraction to myself is Neal Schon, one of the truly great guitarists. People mention Journey, but the group and music is not very comparable, except for Neal. Schon is always good, his playing is not over powering like some guitarists, but his solos are impressive, unique and melodic. The rest of the band are accomplished muscicians which makes a very easy on the ears style of rock - comparable more to Toto sound. The only reason I don't give 5 out of 5 is the songwriting - nothing special there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bad English's "Backlash" January 24, 2000
By Chuck
Format:Audio CD
John Waite on vocals, Neal Schon on guitar, and Jonathan Cain on doesn't get better. John Waite and Neal Schon belong playing together. The only bad part of this CD is that it was their last work together. "Straight to Your Heart" gets you rockin', then "Time Stood Still" & "The Time Alone With You" shows off John's voice and writing ability. "Savage Blue", "Pray For Rain" and "Make Love Last" round out a fabulous album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Second strike February 10, 2012
Format:Audio CD
1991's Backlash was the second (and final) album from Bad English, the melodic rock supergroup formed by members of Journey and The Babys. The combination of Neal Schon's guitar work and John Waite's unique voice made the Bad English debut a major hit, but the follow-up wasn't as well received.

Backlash may not have had the hit singles the Bad English debut did, but it was arguably the better of their two releases. The same arena-rocking blend of power ballads and rock anthems is in place here, and if anything, Backlash is even more radio-friendly. Songs like "So This Is Eden," "Straight To Your Heart" and "Life at the Top" hit just the right balance between guitar-heavy rock and keyboard-drenched AOR, and even the ballads ("Time Stood Still" and "Make Love Last") work really well, and without the lyrical cheese of the previous album's big hit "When I See You Smile." It was just a strong slice of melodic rock to close out the era of that kind of music.

Backlash proved to be the band's final release. Creative differences split the band (Schon apparently wanted to go for a harder rocking sound while Waite preferred the more pop-oriented approach), but given the incoming wave of grunge it's hard to imagine the band lasting much longer anyway. Schon and keyboardist Jonathan Cain went back to Jouney, taking drummer Deen Castronovo with them, and John Waite relaunched his solo career.

It's not a perfect album, but if you're a fan of the late `80s AOR/melodic rock sound, particularly that of bands like Giant, Damn Yankees, Tyketto, Valentine and Alias, Backlash is pretty much a must-have album. It goes without saying that Journey and John Waite/The Babys fans will need this one in their collections.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Superior Second Effort June 15, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Two short years after releasing their debut, which reached platinum status and charted five singles (most notably the top 5 hits "When I See You Smile" and "Price Of Love") Bad English folded when this album managed only a #42 placing for it's single "Straight To Your Heart" and stopped on the album chart at a dismal #72.
Why remains a mystery. Everything that was good about the first album has been improved on greatly for this release: the songs are tighter (and there's less of them, so it doesn't overstay it's welcome like the first one tends to), the playing sounds more like they mean it, and best of all, the rockers not only rock, they're actually great to listen to.
"So This Is Eden" is a great opener, but almost all of the tracks qualify as highlights. My personal favourites are "Time Stood Still", "Pray For Rain" and "Life At The Top", but there isn't a poor cut here.
Recommended to all John Waite/Babys fans, and those who like their Journey with a harder edge.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best In High Energy Glam Rock! January 21, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Ever since i was introduced to the song "Time Alone With You" that was a radio hit back in 1991, never had i really expected that years later it would continue to be a constant listen in my player for its rocky and catchy package. Those putting their last work down should know first what they're talking about, because every song has its story to tell. From the ballad smoothness of Time Alone With You, Make Love Last and Time Stood Still to the edgy Straight To Your Heart and to the adventurous Rebel Say A Prayer and the passionate Savage Blue, this album is tops, without a doubt. If you like high-energy rock that has a lasting, melodic edge to it, then Backlash is definitely it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bad means good - or GREAT in the case of Bad English
John Waite on vocals. Neal Schon on guitar. Jonathan Caine on keyboards. Can I say more? This band should have been great. Babys, Journey together. It is like a Reece's cup. Read more
