The long-awaited 1987 follow-up to the multi-platinum 1984 "Reckless." Oddly, it fell on it's ass from a hit/sales standpoint. And so the paradox is that one of his best is one of his least known. Only "Heat of the Night" turns up on compilations. The sublime, self-pity fest "Victim of Love" was also a hit of sorts. The entire album is great, however. Real standouts for me are "Home At Last" and "Remembrance Day." Though he's improved in recent years, the 90's were not the best time for BAdams. The albums during that period had a few good tracks, and many oddly juvenile, garage band-type concoctions. INTO THE FIRE is truly a masterpiece and certainly his best album of the 80's, perhaps ever. Do yourself a favor and pick this up. If Def Leppard hadn't dominated the airwaves in 1987 this could've been THE album that year.
