He is clearly a powerful addition to the band.
William Wood
This album, however, together with "Free" is very good.
Fredrik Bendz
This is one the best blues/rock albums ever recorded.

My favourite Free album now sounds even better thanks to a remastering that let's the music shine. After the poor "Free at Last" ( recorded just before the band split for the first time) who would have expected an album as good as this?( Especially without the bass playing and songwriting of Andy Fraser who it seems could not reconcile himself to work with Paul Rodgers again).
The album has it's fair share of bluesy rockers( "Wishing Well" ,"Heartbreaker" and perhaps drummer Simon Kirke's finest performance in "Seven Angels") but it is the slower , more soulful numbers that really make this album special. John Bundrick's two songs "Common mortal man" and Muddy Water" are both suberb and have had me searching for a copy of his solo album (Broken Arrows) for a long time. His keyboard work throughout is polished and always sympathetic to the tunes and what the other musicians are playing. He is clearly a powerful addition to the band. The vocals of Paul Rogers are at times quite stunning in the emotion they are able to convey,and on "come together in the morning" he and guitarist Paul Kossof are captured at an absolute peak ( just listen to the slow fade out and then fade in at the end of the tune-suberb!). Paul Rodgers also pens all the other tunes on the disc and has never written a better bunch of songs ,even the somewhat slight "Easy on my soul" is rendered as a classic by these guys.
In all it is sad that this was the end of a band that had so much potential, but at least we have "Heartbreaker " to remind us of what was.

It took me about six years to realise what a magnificent album this is -- it was 1979; I was an Oxford student, slightly drunk and mourning a relationship that had just ended -- but it has remained one of my Top 20 favourites ever since. Paul Kossoff's guitar solos on 'Come Together in the Morning' are still some of the most ethereal, spine-tingling elements to emerge from the whole 60s/70s era.
I have had this album on cassette and on unremastered CD. It's always been a notoriously murky mix -- but on a track like 'Wishing Well' that's how it should be. The great news is that this remaster rescues many instruments from the dense wall of sound of the original, particularly the percussion and acoustic guitar. Forget the bonus tracks -- e.g. the timbales on the US mix of 'Wishing Well' -- they are interesting once, but you won't want to remember this classic album for the tinny piano doodlings of the rehearsal versions.
The informative sleeve notes are by Britain's Phil Sutcliffe, the CD itself now resembles the original LP centre label.
In the UK this will rightly become the standard version of HEARTBREAKER, and is priced to replace the AAD version once stocks run out. In the US, we may have to continue buying on import. Very, very strongly recommended.

Hearbreaker finds a young band stepping into maturity to defy the process of disintegration. Whatever was happening to them at the time, Free turned out one of the best and most enduring recordings of 1972. Though Bad Co. would rock harder and sell many more records, they never came close to the sublime majesty of this one.

Free's song structures, based on blues, gospel, and rock-steady elements, sound more potent and less contrived than ever. Paul Rodger's lyrics have finally grown out of teenage adolescence and express the melancholy and humor of a young man. And analog distortion has never sounded so good - with Andy Johns' crackling production, Free catches fire on Wishing Well and burns through every track to its final resting place on Seven Angels.

1972 was a golden year for album-rock radio, and Heartbreaker wears the classic sound of those times with impressive power and dignity.

Iron Maiden singer Bruce Dickinson covered 2 of the songs on this album during the Tattooed Millionaire tour. I bought this CD to hear what the original songs sounded like. Blown away cannot describe the feeling I got when first hearing this disc. Come Together In the Morning, Heartbreaker and Easy on My Soul are some of the best songs made by ANY group.

Maybe it's the mastering of Island records CD release of "Heartbreaker" vs. the mastering of A&M records CD release of "Fire and Water", but whatever it is, the "Heartbreaker" CD has never sounded as good as 1970's "Fire and Water". Turning the table in consideration of the music, "Heartbreaker" has never quite received the same acclaim as "Fire and Water" either, although Free's most emotionally charged & gut wrenching music was written & recorded during these sessions. Free was known for blues rock, and by 1972 they indeed had the blues.
Track 1, "Wishing Well", begins very sloppy and distorted. It's like putting an album on the turntable and the needle skipping a flaw in the vinyl, or like the engineer almost forgot to turn the recording equipment on. You can almost hear the kaos, right there in the recording studio, of a band that is hanging on by a thread. From its flawed beginning, "Wishing Well" settles into one of Free's best songs. Paul Kosssoff helped write Wishing Well, but unfortunatly did not play guitar on the songs recording, and it shows.
Track 2, "Come Together In The Morning" written by Paul Rodgers, starts out wonderful. At exactly 00:40 into the song the distortion and feedback get out of hand. Kossoff regains control and Rodgers finishes out one of the most beautiful songs in Free's catalog, but unfortunately it is forever scared by the distortion level in the beginning.
Track 3, "Travellin In Style", has a warm earthly tone, and is one of the best tracks on this CD. This song is most remenscent of the fun days of the once teen-age rock & roll band that was Free in 1968.
Track 4, "Heartbreaker" written by Rodgers, is classic blues-based rock at it's finest.
