1.Wild Nights(9/10)Great song.His guitar work always is impressive.
2.Twisted(8/10)Another great song, had a music video back in the day.Worth Owning!
3.Does anybody really fall in love anymore(7/10)Bon Jovi orginally wrote this song.Good stuff, not the best though.
4.Dance Little Sister(10/10)Excellent track.Rocks with fury and party energy.The chorus is catchy.Guitar work really ignites sparks on this song.
5.Rebel Heart(10/10)Best song on here.The keyboards and guitar are dazzling.Kane's solos are unique!A great anthem rocker.One of the catchiest chorus lines I think.
6.You Always Want it(7/10)Another great metal song.
7.Fighter(8/10)great guitar work on here.
8.I'm not lookin for an angel(8/10)Fine song.furious fret work by Kane.
9.Too Far Gone(8/10)Another standout on par with the album.
10.It's only Over for You(7/10)This one's a little weak, but not bad.It's no rebel heart but it's good.
This album is worth picking up before it's impossible to get again.I remember when it used to cost 35 bucks.I only paid 5 for it.It was well worth every cent and then some.Even thought this came out in 1991, it has a great 80's hair/metal sound.
The 80's is where it's all at.Music and stuff, the 80's rock.
Packaging - Hardcover cd case. 5/5
Inserts - good album cover and what not and the inserts have some more sweet photo's. 5/5
Cd - my copy is a rare promotional cd, but its a good recording quality cd either promotional or non promotional. 5/5
Wild Nights - This may be the best track on the cd, it's a great starting track for this album starting with great keyboards, then into some amazing riffs and lyrics. 5/5
Twisted - Another good song that had a video for it, a hit for the cd, although anything coming from it is a minor hit due to its unknownest. 5/5
Does anybody Really Fall in Love anymore? - A copy of Bon Jovi's song, however all that have heard both versions say Roberts did a much better job. This Song by Roberts was the biggest hit of his carreer, reaching number 40 on the billboard top 100 singles for 1991. 5/5
Dance Little Sister - A shorter song yet still one of the best on the cd. 5/5
Rebel Heart - A balled like Rock Party song, that only Roberts could pull off. Great Guitar and Keyboards.Read more ›
In comparison to his debut album, "Saints and sinners" is a much more melodic and slightly less glamorous collection of songs; the lyrics for that matter have moved away from the sex & violence concept to more self expressive themes. In addition Kane's macho vocals have become substantially more melodic and clear delivering a strong AOR essence to the album. The studio line-up features Kane on lead vocals and lead guitar, John McCurry on guitar, Steven Steele on bass, Myron Grombacher on drums and key player Chuck Kenits.
"Saints and Sinners" is definitely amongst the last great melodic hard rock albums to be released in the early 90s, riding on the success the genre enjoyed during the 80s. For that matter "Saints and Sinners" holds its own in today's musical scenery. Indeed songs like the unsurpassable "Rebel Heart", the melodic "Fighter" the overblown "Too far gone" and the hit power-ballad "Does anybody really fall in love any more".
"Saints and Sinners" is a great melodic hard rock album by a criminally under-rated guitarist-singer-songwriter that effortlessly stands up to contemporary melodic rock works; and Kane Roberts will return as a live performer in late 2011.
