Album review: Bad Company - Straight Shooter


Album Review

Band: Bad Company
Album: Straight Shooter
Year: 1975

Some people think that Bad Company’s second album, Straight Shooter, is better than their debut. They are wrong. First, like their debut, there only eight songs which is pretty weak from a "super group" such as this. On second thought, maybe they only had four four really good tracks and had to add four filler songs just to get to eight. Methinks they should have spent more time in the studio. Also, the lyrics are mostly garbage. Aside from that, Paul Rodgers is pretty awesome and there are a couple great songs. The rest are mostly decent tunes with a turd thrown in there (Anna). Bad Company's best songs have a heavy guitar crunch that is pure kick ass and there is enough of that here to say it is a nice sophomore outing.

Here is the list:
  1. Good Lovin' Gone Bad ★★★★
    1. Obvious classic and best song on the whole dang thing.
  2. Feel Like Makin' Love ★★★★
    1. Who does not love a good power ballad...am I right?
  3. Weep No More ★★
  4. Shooting Star ★★★
    1. I know a lot of people love this song but it always annoyed me. I still gave it three stars though.
  5. Deal With The Preacher ★★
  6. Wild Fire Woman ★★★
  7. Anna
    1. Junk
  8. Call On Me ★★
