4.0 out of 5 stars Introspective Seger February 20, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
His greatest hits album was/is awesome, but there are songs on it that pale in comparison to some of the songs on this compilation. "Real Love" is a great tune, as is the opening track, "Take A Chance". I love the song "Sightseeing"; this isn't your normal schmoe writing a rock song and so we get a "not your normal rock song" result. Great lyrics, great rhythm. "Real At The Time" is great. Who hasn't been in love w/someone and years later looked back and said to themselves, "Yup, it was real at the time."? "Blind Love" is maybe my favorite track on the cd. It has a strong country feel, but it's the way country ought to sound. No twang, no steel guitars. The whole cd is just a solid, solid set from a master of rock and roll.

5.0 out of 5 stars Information about this album! November 20, 2007
Format:Vinyl|Verified Purchase
Bob Seger's 'Fire Inside' is a characteristically conservative yet touching display of midlife musical resolve. Seger was thirty-one when he realized his rock dream with Live Bullet, from 1976, and never forgot the frustrations of the struggle. So after the commercial harvest of the subsequent Night Moves, he refined a formula that balanced the abandon of the roadhouse rocker with the control of a singer-songwriter and became that rare pontificator who could encore with a convincing Chuck Berry number.

The supporting cast of The Fire Inside mixes L.A. session aces with Bruce Hornsby, members of John Mellencamp's Indiana crew and Seger's own Silver Bullet Band. Seger followed his usual habit by recording some of the album with the soulful Barry Beckett at the board - much of the rest was recorded by Don Was - and the disc would be understood as bullishly American even if it didn't have the Statue of Liberty on the cover. Seger's nationalistic impulses, however, truly flower when he touches upon blues and country.

Seger covers his established styles with "Take a Chance" (floor-pounding rock), "The Fire Inside" (end-of-the-innocence ruminations) and "The Real Love" (earnestly romantic ballads). "The Real Love" is particularly fine, with Seger's sandy voice framed by Mike Campbell's layered guitars and a battery of background singers. "Sightseeing" evokes the rural rock of Mellencamp - and underscores the nature of artistic influences with a lyric about gaining inspiration from looking at great art.

That's why it makes perfect sense that the album's poetic heat comes from two songs by another artist: Tom Waits, one very idiosyncratic singer-songwriter.

Some rockartists doesn`t know their roots. Bob Seger is one of the few among the socalled "modern" artist`s`who does. The opener Take a Chance isn`t realy up there in 5 stars heaven. The theme is to much repeated, and have to little variation, but you don`t have to wait long. Track 2 The Real Love kicks your`e soul in gear, (it`s also produced by Gear Publishing Co but that`s a coincidence ?), Track 3 Sightseeing Is root`s rock and roll, but nothing more sorry to

say. Track 4 Real at the time I't s much in the same style, and not a realy "earopener" when it come`s to creative listning experience. Track 5 Always In My Heart is a ballad, and it`s ok. Very simple, not to creative to listen too. It`s good too take a slow dance too, but would not lift you up with star`s in your`e eyes. Aaaah.But at last The title track Track 6 The Fire Inside. Bob Seger at his best, saved by a good melody, and Roy Bittan, (from Springsteen Estreet band with a pianoplaying which realy hit`s the mark). This is it, to make it short. Everything fit`s in a way. A melody that will lift your`e soul. Track 7 New Coat of Paint is Bob Seger singing Tom Wait`s, and has some flair, style, and a walkalong melody. Track 8 Which Way, is a good blues song, which has much weight in the melody and a good whole. Track 9 The Mouintain has Eagles member Joe Walsh on Lead guitar, that save this one. Puerly standard rock and roll. Track 10 The Long Way Home is a great ballad. Simple, but strong on lyricks which tells us much about life:- Some lose their way. They all want so much to succeed. How do you tell them apart. The best of them lead with their heart. Bob Seger The Long Way Home. This is great poetry, and something to think about for each of us.

Track 11 Blind Love is more in the "country style" and ok.

5.0 out of 5 stars Most Underrated Seger Album September 15, 2003
By Slim
Format:Audio CD
I love early Seger. No one rocked harder than Seger did in the late 60's, very early 70's. Those great albums like "RG Man" and "Mongrel" are sadly locked away in Punch Andrews basement, probably forever. But this 1991 effort by Bob is every bit as great in a totally different way. Very mature, smartly written, great hooks. Maybe his best song writing ever. This is Bob at 45 years old, driving his message home with execellent piano work, fiddles, and squeeze boxes, while still giving Joe Walsh a run for his money on dueling guitars. A wonderful piece of work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Reissue Of Bob Seger's Most Underrated Album November 10, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a great remastered reissue of Bob Seger's most underrated album, THE FIRE INSIDE. The album ranges from the Ted Nugent-Outlaws-Springsteen hybrids of "Take A Chance" and "It Was Real At The Time" to the 50s-style piano rocker title track to the romantic ballad "The Real Love." This was the first album where Seger seemed to show any sense of comfort with where he was, even if he was still keeping an eye on the dangerous elements of society which he feared could harm himself or others he cared about. Seger's strong nationalistic support for efforts to free Americans jailed in Iran and North Korea on trumped-up charges during the early part of 2009 makes this CD-R an essential purchase for both your ears AND your conscience.
