5.0 out of 5 stars Ann & Nancy are BACK!! October 2, 2012
By S. Pino
Format:MP3 Music
This CD sounds like vintage Heart. They are getting back to what they do best - ROCK! Each song sounds personal and Ann Wilson sounds better than ever! These 2 ladies are just unstoppable and are at the top of their game on this one. No filler - every song is amazing. Standouts are Million Miles, 59 Crunch and Mashalla.

4.0 out of 5 stars Heart gets back on the tracks. October 2, 2012
By ScottE
Format:Audio CD
After the letdown of "Red Velvet Car", (**) Heart comes back with some good rockin' stuff on "Fanatic". Now not every thing works here, but they connect more than they miss here. The strong tunes here are the plunking Zeppelin sound of "Corduroy Road", Nancy and Ann on the crunchy "59 Crunch", "Mashallah", "Million Miles", the classic rock sound of "Skin And Bones", the patriotic "Dear Old America", really nice string section here and the title track. They sound really inspired after 40 plus years in the music biz. I think it's their best work since 1985's "Heart", album. Ann sounds great here and Nancy still plays guitar with fine fury and class. Classic-rock radio should play the crap out of this, but we all know they won't! Fantastic rock record, the 45-50 age group and above should enjoy this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars HEART IS HEART AGAIN !!!!!!! October 2, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I must admit that i was very skeptical about Fanatic when i saw that it was going to be produced by Ben Mink, the same producer that did Red Velvet Car. I'm a big Heart fan, but i really didn't care for Red Velvet Car, it was ok, but just not what i wanted to hear from heart. But wow, after one listen to FANATIC, I had to listen again because i was hearing guitars all over the place....Haven't heard this much guitar on a Heart album since the self titled HEART and the fantastic BEBE LE STRANGE.... Call me crazy, but FANATIC fits nicely between those 2 classic HEART ALBUMS!!!!!! Not as polished as Heart, not quite as heavy as BEBE Le STRANGE, but a great album that falls perfectly in between...THIS WAS A PLEASANT SURPRISE.....Best HEART album in over 20 years!!!!! Ann's voice is as powerful as ever and the BAND is AWESOME....This is a GREAT GUITAR DRIVEN ALBUM!!!!! I have been following Hearts career since Dreamboat Annie and Fanatic really gives me HOPE IN AMERICAN ROCK MUSIC AGAIN!!!!!! THANKS ANN AND NANCY!!!! You Hit This One Outta The Park!!!!! Any REAL HEART FAN will love this!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ann and Nancy at their best October 3, 2012
Format:Audio CD
This CD is pure rock and roll like only Heart can deliver it. Rock and roll is what they are about.. but yes with the vocals and they convey the message of living in 2012 across. The entire CD is made up of songs women, men and
everyone can relate to. It is a Ann & Nancy telling how to live life in 2012

5.0 out of 5 stars Return To Form October 5, 2012
Format:Audio CD
It has been a long time coming and maybe most had given up on this band ever hitting the standard set on their early albums as well as the self titled album in the 80s. This is a fresh and welcome return to form that also pushes some of the boundaries. Who would have thought. Not bad for a band that has been around for 4 decades. All songs have been written by the Wilson sisters with Ben Mink. One cant understate the impact he has had on this album. There is not a bad song on this album. Must listens are Pennsylvania, Million Miles, Mashallah, 59 Crunch. Always rated Ann as one of the top female singers and this album just continues to confirm this. Currently my favourite Heart album.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite since DOG & BUTTERFLY October 6, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was very vocal about my disappointment with some of STRANGE EUPHORIA (disc three), but FANATIC is PERFECT!! This album (to me) is their best real rock since 78. The songs flow like an album should (only my opinion). FANATIC has the HEART trademark rock sound, as well as those acoustic songs that put you in a zone. The strings on this album are (again, in my opinion) a masterpiece.. There is as much passion and power in the lighter songs as there is in the rockers.. it's a subtle power that completely envelopes me. I sincerely hope they get into the Rock Hall this year.. I have been a fan since the first album and will be until the day I die.. Thank you Ann and Nancy!

PS.. All 10 of the songs are great! Not even one I would consider skipping over....

5.0 out of 5 stars I Gotta Give It To Them...They Still Have Heart! October 5, 2012
Format:Audio CD
I was reading other reviews on here and thought I'd throw in my $9.99 worth! This CD is worth every penny...all the songs rock and were written by Ann and Nancy Wilson with Ben Mink! It's so true that this probably won't get any air play on the radio and that the age groups here are between people in their 40s and 50s, that grew up with the group and that stuff that was true rock and roll from the 70s and 80s! I am 52 years old and I love this kind of music! Although I liked it, I think it's much better than their last CD called Red Velvet Car from two years ago! And you might want to do yourself this little favor and pick up a copy of the CD at Best Buy because they have an exclusive three bonus tracks (Beautiful Broken, Two Silver Rings and Zingara) that makes a total of thirteen songs instead of the normal ten! And yes...they are great as well! I haven't picked a favorite yet but the songs seem to get just a little better as you go down the track list! Overall...It's Fanatic!

5.0 out of 5 stars STILL GOT IT!!!!!! October 9, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I rarely give anyone 5 stars,but this one definitely deserves it.Perhaps,it's because I've been a fan of the Wilsons for as long as I can remember...But the music is really good and their song writing skills really show in all the songs.Most of the songs I loved.The standouts for me were...Fanatic,Dear Old America,Walkin' Good,A Million Miles,Pennsylvania,Rock Deep and Corduroy Road.Basically the whole album did it for me.Ann & Nancy share vox on the songs which they have been since the 70's.The girls still have it and see no stopping here.The album rocks and if you've been a fan forever,get it now and rock til you drop!!! Aloha!!! \m/

3.0 out of 5 stars Okay but not great.
This is definitely not their best work by any means but it has some decent cuts on it. If you love heart, might be worth adding to your collection.

It's Heart. What's not to love? Ann rocks, Nancy knows how to play guitar - and the band enjoys all tunes.

3.0 out of 5 stars Heart Fanatic
I miss the Heart of old. This one is ok, but it tries to sound too modern and is obvious about it. I've heard much worse music than this, and it is worth a few listens. Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars Not very good...
Not their best album by any means. Ever since Jupiter's Darling they've been kinda sounding more rough and less like the Heart of old that I liked so well. Read more

Saw the concert and it was awesome! This CD is great and I like the music right off. That is not usually the case for me. Heart hit a homer with this one.
