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.Read more ›
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.
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.Read more ›

The runaways could have been greater back in the day but sadly they did not achieve great success. But they had some great albums to fall back on & lita ford has made it on her own... Read morePublished 2 months ago by Amazon Customer
