This stands up with the first two albums. Classic sound meets today's production. All in all, she went out and made one hell of an album. The songs are catchy and fun. I hope the new songwriting partnership with her son, Richard, continues. They are really on to something.
I have given 5 stars for this CD because, tho I have my personal doubts, this is a splendid recording, showing SQ can and has moved with the times, and suceeded in something different. As the tracks move on I find my favourites - MACHO MAN/EASY PICKINGS/BASS LINE and the final three. This is because, and here I get to my personal concerns - these tracks are more bluesy and rocky with good riffs and melody...and feature SQ's voice up in the dub and her "snarl". The production is unlike her previous recordings...Big/Busy and a bit overpowering (to this horse anyway) and a lot of overdubbing. Don't get me wrong - still a 5 star release and a very welcome one. I just wanted to make the observations. Not Criticisms. I'd love to see Suzie back in the charts with this, but....Recomended heartily to SQ fans to decide for themselves.
This is quite a heavy rock album so Heavy Duty would be a more apt title. All tracks written with her son and they are very good,Suzi is in great voice throughout. I much prefer this set to the QSP album which was a bit disappointing. Tried to buy this in a couple of high street music outlets but neither had in stock which is poor and Amazon's price at present is high for a single album (£14.75).
Suzi Quatro is back with this excellent release. The more mature she gets, her voice moves on from real glam rock to rock ballads and blues. This is a great sounding album, and the 2LP coloured vinyl and CD are a steal at the price. I would have given 5 stars but the CD was a let down. It came in a plain paper cover and that was it, no information what the CD was and no track list or picture. Still, you can't have everything!!
5.0 out of 5 starsSolid Rock from one of thee Best Lady Rockers of Our Tiem.

Track 1 sets the Theme for the rest of the Album - but Suzi introduces other influences than straight Rock. Lovely Fusion between Guitars, Bass & Harmonicas. Lots of diversity in Musical Styles & Lyricism.
