PLAYING WITH FIRE
The fifth & final single from the album. This song had blown me away. I could not believe how heavy this song. Richard Marx is known to record songs that are along the sounds of Light Rock & Pop. But this is a real Heavy Rock tune and it is absolutely outstanding. You'll notice that Barry White makes a cameo appearance at the beginning of this song, where he says, "...Let's Get Busy..."
In my opinion, this song is much better than that of Playing With Fire. This song has a real catchy sound, with catchy lyrics and Richard's amazing voice to go with that catchy sound. Make sure to listen to this before going on to the next song.
KEEP COMING BACK
The first single from the album. A real nice soothing ballad, but it does not sound like a Richard Marx song, for it has an influenced jazz sound in there. But it is a song that I can easily listen to without having to turn it off.
TAKE THIS HEART
The third single from the album. Now, this is more like Richard's style and sound. It may sound a lot like the material from the Repeat Offender album, but this is a song that I would never turn off.
HAZARD (THE RIVER)
The second single from the album. My absolute favorite Richard Marx song, with Children Of The Night coming up right behind it. I cannot tell you how much I enjoy hearing this song.Read more ›
Since the first time I heard the album I was just hooked. Richard Marx is a true genius in writing songs with messages about life and love.
And on this album more than any other album he proves what a versatile artist he is.
This album has nothing but great songs on it! Every fan of American westcoast rock/pop music has to agree with me on this.
Also, the album features some of the most talented musicians of today: Steve Lukather, Mike Landau, Nathan East, Terry Bozzio, Marcus Miller, Jonathan Moffett, Lee Sklar, Bruce Gaitsch, Greg Phillinganes and Randy Jackson, just to name a few.
And of course the groovemaster himself - Mr. Jeff Porcaro! What a line-up.
Altogether this album is solid as a rock and makes for hundreds of listenings. I never seem to get tired of it.
Favourites tracks are:
"Hazard" - One of the best songs ever written. The lyrics are so awesome and the melody so beautiful.
"Big Boy Now" - Fantastic song. The guitar solo by Mike Landau is breathtaking!!
"Take This Heart" - a true Richard Marx classic. Great melody and arrangement.
"Hands In Your Pocket" - awesome, powerful song. Superb drumming by Jeff Porcaro.
Funny enough, "Keep Coming Back" never really got to me. Actually I think it's a rather boring song. I guess taste is different. :-)
The tracks "Playing With Fire" and "Love Unemotional" get the album off to a rocking start. Not many Richard Marx songs of this type get on the radio, but it proves that the man is (or was) about more than ballads. Then comes the three radio hits--all of which are excellent. "Keep Coming Back" is a very sultry, slow song; "Take This Heart" is a beautifully melodic mid-tempo ballad; and "Hazard" is a haunting, story-telling track that is one of the most unique (not to mention best) songs that Richard has ever done.
The rock kicks back in on the next 5 tracks, while the final three tracks are again slower. All of the tracks are great, but my personal favorites are the rockers "Streets of Pain" which includes Tommy Lee of Motley Crue and Steve Lukather of Toto and "I Get No Sleep" which features a kicking piano solo by the legendary Billy Joel.
From this point on in his career, Richard began a trend that took him away from any true rock music. His follow up album to this one was still good, but anything since then I have had little interest in due to a complete reliance on slow material. For sure, Richard was at his best on his first few albums. This one to me stands out because of its variety of songs. Definitely a pop/rock gem from the early '90s.
