Anyone interested in rock, female rock, or Canadian rock needs to have Alannah Myles in their collection! She should be rated as a near equivalent to Pat Benatar (THE Queen of Rock).

This CD ia a throwback to a differnt time for sure so for anyone looking for what I would consider music that I would categorize today as Classic Rock then pick it up. For sure Alannah had that something special and could pull off easily the rocker chick attitude. I think women like Pat Benetar, Joan Jett gave other women the freedom of expression in their day to venture out and attempt to fit into a genre & style of music that was largely held by men.....so kudo's to all those women who had the guts to take it on the chin and find their own way in.

1. Black Velvet: This song will always go down as my favorite Alannah song. She does that blues/rock just killer! Love the rasp in her voice which just adds to the aura of this song. Has a real southern flavour to the musicality of the song. I still have this song on my favorite playlist as it just has stood the test of time.

2.Love Is: This song is a rock song for sure. I like her voice on it though..some great guitar work to fit the song on this one.

3.Lover of Mine: This is my 2nd favorite song on this CD. Such a beautiful song and I love how she reeled in her rocker vocals to show the tender side of the intent of the lyrics of this song. Just the right amount of raw vocal & genuine soft sweet sincerity. Such a lovely love song showing all the dynamics and moods of a love affair.

4.Kick Start My Heart: This is an "in your face" rock song; nothing held back. Definetly some of the male rocker 80's bands influences here....I was just waiting for ZZ Top to enter into the song somewhere; she should have done a video pantamiming that bands video's of the day...it would have been comical!

5.Hurry Make Love: I just love the blues guitar work on the intro to this song.

With a hard rock bluesy guitar that later isn't a bad imitation of early ZZ Top, and a rousing cry in that rough voice of hers, kind of a more refined variation on Joan Jett, Alannah Myles kicks off her debut album with "Still Got This Thing For You."
That's followed by the second single, "Love Is", which is punctuated by a throbbing bass and a 80's hard-rock guitar. Here's how she defines love: "Love is ( love is )/Heaven to the lonely/Show me/What you want me to do/Cause love is/What I got for you"
The slow bluesy "Black Velvet", with more of that punctuated bass, is of course, hands down, the best song here, and the one that topped the charts in 1990. Who can forget that chorus: "Black velvet and that little boy's smile/Black velvet with that slow southern style/A new religion that'll bring ya to your knees/Black velvet if you please." There's another lyric that's visually cool: "The sun is settin' like molasses in the sky." However, don't let naysayers tell you she was a one-hit wonder. There's more great stuff on this album and on her followup, the more melancholy Rockinghorse.
"Rock This Joint" is the hardest rocking song here even replete with Def Leppard-like backup vocals. There is a slight nod to "Pour Some Sugar On Me" while that ZZ Top-like guitar plays. She wants to rock the joint to the point that, "I wanna die with a smile on my face."
That is followed by the first ballad and third single, "Lover Of Mine" which deserved a place in the Top Ten at the very least. Her voice when smooth, shows she has slow-song talents. The chorus and guitar at the end puts shifts into minor power ballad mode.
The mid-paced "Kick Start My Heart" has shades of New Jersey-era Bon Jovi, specifically "Bad Medicine" down to the synthesizer, horns, and guitar.

Taking advantage of a recent daydream, I purchased a few CDs from my remembrance of years gone by (while dipping a madeline in my tea... no, wait a moment, that's someone else's daydream). This one came to mind due entirely to the throaty, breathy voice that belted out "Black Velvet" with such feeling. I was interested to discover if I would find the song as satisfying today as I did those years ago.
In short, I did. "Black Velvet" conjures the same dark, rural gothic images today as it did then. Then I listened to the rest of the CD.
Make a note, when encountering a CD by a singer who is essentially a "one hit wonder," don't listen to the other songs on the CD. None of them have the power or the feeling of "Black Velvet;" some are merely mediocre, others just plain bad.
Be that as it may. If you are wishing to revisit your youth, or whichever of the stages in which you found yourself when this album was released, for a drive down Memory Avenue, ten bucks is not so drastic a price to pay for the cab fare.
