This is by far the best CD Heart ever made. I have everything that they have ever done that I could get my hands on. I love all of their stuff, including the Lovemongers, Nancy's CD Live at McCabes, solo stuff, import albums just for one song not released in the US, everything. But this CD rules. I bought it the day it was released in 1990, and 11 years later, it is still my favorite Heart CD. I love every song on this CD. Ann's voice is an amazing instrument. Unbelievable power, range, clarity and diction. I've seen them in concert 3 times, and she sounds just as good if not better live. It's too bad she never made a duet with Steve Perry. That would've just been an absolutely incredible to hear. My favorites on this CD are Under The Sky, Fallen From Grace, All I Wanna Do Is Make Love To You, Wild Child, Secret, and Stranded. Nancy turns in her best vocal performance to date with Stranded. It is such a good album that it is hard for me to say which songs are my fave's, because I really love the entire CD. It is also an excellently recorded album, really sounds great. I also got the CD single for Stranded which has 2 unreleased songs on it, which are: The Will To Love - a ballad, which is one of my favorite Heart songs, and Cruel Tears - a slamming rocker. Both of them are sung by Ann. Unfortunately, this CD single is no longer available. It's too bad they didn't put them on Brigade, it would have rounded the CD out to 15 songs, and really put it over the top as one of the best rock albums of all time. When I recorded Brigade on tape for my car, that's exactly what I did. Buy this CD right now, I promise you, you won't be sorry.

By 1990, Heart was well established as one of the most successful bands in America. They started out big in the 1970s' with big hits like "Barracuda" and "Magic Man, then hit a snag in the early 1980s'. By 1985, Heart was primed for a comeback. Their eponymous debut on Capitol brought them back to the top with hits like "Never" and "These Dreams". 1987's "Bad Animals" continued their run of hits with "Who Will You Run To" and "Alone". In 1990, the band released their third Capitol release, "Brigade". How does it hold up? Read on.

"Brigade" is one of Heart's finest albums. It was at this point that Ann and Nancy started to gain more creative control, as their last two albums were filled with songs that Capitol forced them to record (ie, ballads). This is much more of a rocking album than their previous two releases. The opening track, "Wild Child", is one of the heaviest tracks the band ever did. Highlighted by a forceful synth line and fierce guitars, it makes for a strong opener. Next comes the big hit off the album, the ballad "All I Wanna Do Is Make Love To You". Written by Mutt Lange, many people hate this song, but I for one love it. Ann gives one of her most powerful vocal performances on this song, and it deserved to become the hit it became and should get more respects than it actually has. Next comes my absolute favorite Heart song. "Secret" is a heartwrenching ballad filled with magnificent keyboard flourishes, a strong Ann vocal and great acoustic guitar work by Nancy. The next track, "Tall Dark Handsome Stranger" is a forceful rocker with sexy, seductive lyrics and a sultry vocal. "I Didn't Want To Need You" is a midtempo number, not exactly a ballad but not a rocker either. It's one of my favorite songs on the album. The keyboards on this song are fantastic.

When the 1990's kicked in, Heart returned to a sound that outdid the rock sound of their self-titled album. This is their heaviest album ever! Don't get me wrong--I like what Ron Nevison did for Heart, but he kind of overdid it with the synths on Bad Animals. Ritchie Zito kicked those synths in the head and replaced them with some bad, bad, guitars!
The chugging opening guitar and blaring lead guitar of "Wild Child" serves to remind all dissers that Heart can still rock. This could've been on the Heart album. However, using titles of well-known songs in one verse, "Ring my bell, baby" and "Shake baby rattle and roll" is a bit much.
Then comes a song by the Mutt, you know, Mr. Twain, which gained a bit of controversy because it's about a woman who gets impregnated by a hitchhiker after a magical one-night stand because her husband's sterile. At least it put Heart back in the Top Five. One analogy is wonderful: "We walked in the garden we planted to tree."
The power ballad "Secret", on an illicit affair, is my favourite song on this album and I wasn't too chuffed that it didn't climb higher than the Top 60 on the charts. There is a wall of heavy guitar and the Wilsons powerful vocals that somehow just gets me going.
Holly Knight gives the Wilsons "Tall Dark Handsome Stranger," which has a sound reminiscent of Bon Jovi's "Social Disease" what with the horns, but man, what strong guitars! Yow! OK, bloody great rocker, but did the title have to be such a big cliche?
Diane Warren's great pen yields another power ballad, "I Didn't Want To Need You" which is another favourite.
Power chords pound left and right in the stomping "The Night", coming closer to heavy metal than "The Wolf.
