Firehouse was one of the best metal bands in the 90s and scored with "DON'T TREAT ME BAD", "ALL SHE WROTE", "OVERNIGHT SENSATION", AND THE HUGE BALLAD "LOVE OF A LIFETIME". Now I've heard that Firehouse ripped off Journey's "Faithfully". Well, in this case, Firehouse did a much better job with "LOve of a lifetime" because the song reached #5 on Billboard's Hot 100 Singles chart. Between Slaughter, Poison, Warrant and Skid Row, Firehouse was one of the best metal in the 90s. "LOve of a lifetime is a classic ballad and this album is a classic.

One piece of advice- If you buy this album, get it NEW. Most record stores still carry their debut album- but not their other albums.

Don't Treat Me Bad, All She Wrote and Love of a lifetime were all top 40 hits.

Firehouse is simply one of the best heavy metal bands from the 90s.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply Great Hair Metal March 9 2004
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD back in the late 80's for "Love of a Lifetime" because at that time my fiance and I considered it "our song". I never really listened to the rest of the disc. I just pulled this CD out again today and man is it good! The whole disc is great. All of the songs are catchy, I had forgotten about "Don't Treat me Bad", but some of the other tunes I heard for the first time just really grabbed me. If you are a fan of Bon Jovi or Ratt, or just want to listen to some older pop-metal I highly recommend this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Memories!!! Jan. 3 2004
By Pha-Q
Format:Audio CD
Picture this, high school 1993-1994. You're leaving the student parking lot in your old 1985 Ford Tempo piece of crap. Which is worthless, but, the music cranked inside is priceless. That's right people, between this their self titled album "Firehouse" and "Hold Your Fire" I was in business. I used to think I was soooo cooool cranking "Don't Treat Me Bad." Hey opinions vary. The thing is you just cannot own one of these albums without the other close at hand. I have a lot of memories with these albums, and oh them there ballads. "Love of a Lifetime" and SOB SOB, "When I look Into Your Eyes." School dances never sounded so good. Unfortunately, I had to graduate, and Kurt Cobain would infuse us with his wares. Metal went dormant fast, and with it, my prized Firehouse moment in time took a trip to Mars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Underrated July 1 2003
Format:Audio CD
Many of the late 80's/ very early 90's hair bands were empty sounding, and seemed boring. Firehouse was one of the better bands of the era. This debut, is fun, and has some heart in the music. It isn't plastic and mundane like many of the other bands of the era(Slaughter, Trixter, Winger, etc). This is a decent classic hard rock record. If you like the better examples of 80's hard rock, or the 70's golden era, you will enjoy this.

4.0 out of 5 stars What a debut....... Jan. 18 2003
By Elite
Format:Audio CD
Back when it was cool to say you liked bands like Warrant, Poison, Bon Jovi, etc., Firehouse was my favorite. And this CD, to this day, I think is their best. The 2 hits off it ("Don't Treat Me Bad" & "Love Of A Lifetime"), are well known and liked. "Rock On The Radio" is a great way to start off any CD. "All She Wrote" should have been a bigger hit than it was. "Shake And Tumble" is my personal favorite 'non-single' from the disc. "Don't Walk Away" & "Overnight Sensation" are also great tunes. "Seasons Of Change" is the obvious worst song here, but that's why you skip over it. Even though most like it, "Home Is Where The Heart Is" never impressed me. I think the thing that got me into this band was the vocals of C.J. Snare and the cobination of catchy hard rock tunes and excellent ballads. There is really nothing all that original about this band. They are just really good. Simple as that. I highly recommend this CD if you like the 90's hard rock bands like the ones I mentioned above or others of that era. And if you do, you probably already have this and love it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great if not original Big Hair Metal Sept. 20 2002
Format:Audio CD
While some of the latter Hair bands like Firehouse are a step below, say Whitesnake, it's still quality stuff that makes me sad when I think about the "My life, yeah it sucks and I hate everything" theme of grunge that wiped this out soon after. I was about 10-15 in the Nirvana/Pearl Jam years, (perfect age to like it), but I proudly listened to the '80s even if my friends laughed at me.
Whew, anyway I love the anthemic if not cheesy "Don't Treat Me Bad" which begs a girl to be a little nicer. Most of the album follows in this style. "All She Wrote", the high-pitched vocal on "Helpless", the slighly harder "Overnight Sensation", and the happy yet underrated funky "Shake and Tumble" are similarly themed feel-good tunes, as is the simple "Rock On the Radio" which is a song about listening to, yep, just that. Also who can forget the yearning and beautiful Power Ballad "Love Of A Lifetime" (which got lost in a heap of those coming out) is, in a word, touching.
The other songs all sound pretty much the same, "Oughta Be A Law", "Lovers Lane", and even the other ballad, the subpar "Don't Walk Away" are okay, but don't quite have what it takes to stay in your head. Maybe this would've been better as am 8 or 9 song album.
