In My Own Words:
Inspired by 1970's keyboard aces Gary Wright, Dennis DeYoung, Keith Emerson, Manfred Mann and others, Eric began taking piano lessons at age 12. It wasn't long before he had his first synthesizer. In addition to being active in school music programs, Eric played in a series of garage bands and quickly graduated to working bands, eventually going on a multi-state tour with a club band at age 17.

Great Hits-Metro ~ Berlin
Great Hits-Metro ~ Berlin
POSITIVE: If you're a casual fan or only vaguely familiar with Berlin, this is a great primer. It's affordable, concise and has all the hits.
NEGATIVE: I'm not real big on remixes and this album is loaded with them, but for you that may be a plus. Obviously tracks 5-12 are remixes (but what of?). Tracks 1-4 are NOT the original recordings, they are re-recordings. Maybe not a big deal to you but I prefer the originals.
Jupiters Darling ~ Heart
Those of us who were Heart fans from the very first time we heard Magic Man on the radio have difficulty understanding what all the fuss is about. Heart's style from 1975-1980 is distinctly different from the pop/rock/power ballad juggernaut they became in the 80's. "Jupiter's Darling" is a return to that previous era and style. If you are not familiar with that "previous" Heart you have two choices: 1) Shut up and listen to those early albums and learn or 2) buy Greatest Hits 85-95 and go home. But please don't brandish your ignorance like a club by giving this album poor marks. Have a nice day!

5.0 out of 5 stars By FAR, His Best Work!, June 23 2004
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… Read more
