After I bought Wicked Wonderland I had lost a little faith in a lot of things, one of them being that my love for Lita had been misplaced all these years. I did a bit of research into who this guy was on that album and found out it was her husband, who was in some band sometime. Anyway, I'm certain his musical tastes influenced hers back then. To this day I cannot bring myself to listen to that album.

But this is not about that album, its about this one, and this one is a goodie!

The production quality is crisp and clear, and Lita sounds every bit as good as she ever has. The first few tracks are reminiscent of the album Black (which you need to go order if you don't have it), the subject matter being sort of dark. I admit, I want to be inspired to believe in love or inspired to party, or reminisce about good old days or, well anything uplifting. But given the events of her divorce I'm sure Lita has some laundry to air. And this is okay because sometimes life sucks and we need to vent.

Anyway, the first few songs are solid rock, not anthems... just good ole guitar based rock n roll. The guitar is where it should be; not over bearing but following along with melody and occasionally becoming a stellar focal point.

Then you arrive at track 4, the title track. The mood suddenly changes, the guitar changes, and that part of Lita's voice that we all remember comes rushing in. That earnest, yearning part that brings out her emotional side, where it sounds almost like she is fighting tears. This is the range where she shines, and makes the listener feel.

From there Lita can do no wrong, proving with each song why we loved her so much back in the day. "Relentless" is a classic throwback to that era.

OHHHHH Yea, Lita's Back

Like almost all Lita fans, I bought Wicked Wonderland and thought what da ...!!??

Then I read of Lita's personal despair and that she announced a new album that was going to be very personal and, as she said - `back to her fans'.

This is it! Strong 80s rock has never died and now it is reborn through Lita's cathartic, beautifully strong album. This is an honest, mature album, but still carries the punch from the era. Like a Runaway reconnects the one true Queen of Rock to her loyal listeners and, hopefully, lightning strikes its way into all the iPods of everyone after our generation so those listeners will be future fans.

Buy this, in whatever format, and enjoy the work of this strong, admirable lady.

Lita Ford's new release doesn't just show the talents of a lady rocker. It shows the incredible things one can produce when they channel their personal life experience and pain into their art.

My only regret - that I didn't get the two bonus tracks from the limited edition. I feel I cheated myself.

Bless you Lita Ford, and may your future - both for you and your boys - be bright.

I wrote perhaps the most scathing review on Amazon for Lita's previous CD "Wicked Wonderland" and am happy to offer my whole-hearted recommendation for this CD. I thought at the time that her husband was way too heavy handed in the making of that CD and, as it turns out, many other things as well according to Lita herself. It's a shame about her marriage and all the upheaval that's occurred since then, but great pain often results in great art. I believe that getting her feelings out in the process of making this CD should help the healing begin in earnest. All that being said, this is a damn fine CD that to me sounds like a cross between the vibes of "Dancing on the Edge" and "Stiletto". Lita is hungry again and has something to prove and it shows in spades. The title track is breezy and fun but still has a tinge of sadness to it that gives it even greater weight. "Luv 2 Hate U" has a similar vibe musically with different subject matter and Gary Hoey does a nice job sharing vocals with Lita on it. (He did a hell of a job producing this cd as well). "Mother" is this CD's equivalent to "Lisa" from Stiletto with the writers perspective changed and musically it's quite similar as well, both beautiful and wistfully sad. Much of the rest of the CD is the hungry, angry, I-will-overcome side of Lita. "Devil In My Head" is the pinnacle of the angrier tracks and rocks with a fantastic heavy groove to it. "Branded", "Hate", "Asylum", the mysterious sounding "The Mask", "Relentless", and "Bad Neighborhood" all thrive on the upraised-middle-finger-with-conviction-behind-it vibe. Needless to say, playing most of these tracks while driving on the highway is a speeding ticket waiting to happen.Read more ›

Guys, I thought I was going to miss Lita's 80's fun, raucous, over the top, big hair arena-rock metal anthems like "Shot of Poison", "What Do You Know about Love", "Larger than Life" etc., but nope.....this is a phenomenal VERY, VERY GOOD, TRUE Lita album. She sounds really great, the songs are very well written and hard hitting, AND it's exceptionally well produced. Great tunes, great vocals, excellent lyrics and very well polished. And it's ALL rock and roll. Sort of like her older stuff, but better...less big hair arena-metal sounding and more rock and roll. The lyrics are awesome, hard hitting and meaningful...and they REALLY, really hit home when she speaks about the pain from her prior marriage to that spiteful, mean-spirited, gimmicky mess of a husband; the loss of her children's love and respect she's currently dealing with; her life growing up on the road with The Runaways and the nonsense she's needed to face throughout the years from idiots in the music industry.

My favorite tunes so far are Relentless and Asylum (great vocals, great guitar, great tunes....my all around two favorites). Also very good are Bad Neighborhood (the most metal-like on the album), Living Like a Runaway (sort of in the genre of Bryan Adams "Back in the Summer of '69" ), The Mask, Devil In My Head, A Song to Slit Your Wrists By, Mother (a ballad along the lines of her prior "Lisa", but even better) and Branded. Her re-make of "Bitch is Back" is really fun and catchy (and when she growls "the BITCH is back", she really owns it), and although at times she sounds a little pitch-y on this, in her defense that's always been a nice, Lita vocal trademark.
