Walk On Fire - Mind Over Matter


Recommended Posts


From Escape Music:

'Mind Over Matter' is the long awaited second album by the classic AOR act 'Walk On Fire'.

This 13 track CD features ex Asia drummer Trevor Thornton, the late Mike Casswell on guitars (ex Brian May band), Phil Williams (ex Spandau Ballet) and Bowie/Seal keyboards and programming legend, Richard Cottle, and was written and produced by Dave Cairns (of 'Secret Affair' fame).

These newly discovered buried treasures of 24 track analogue recordings were put to tape following the worldwide MCA Records release of the 1989 debut album by 'Walk On Fire' entitled 'Blind Faith'.

Their eponymous album, 'Blind Faith' produced by Boston based Walter Turbitt (of The Cars fame) featured the legendary Steve Ferrone on drums, Richard Cottle on keys, guitars by Keith Airey (Nik Kershaw band) and a host of top session players and a perfect showcase for the incredible Scots vocalist Alan King.
This guitar led follow up is a one stop shop for all AOR fans and well worth the wait too!

If you like your more Trad.late 80's/early 90's AOR/MR, then this is the disc for you. If you liked the debut 'Blind Faith' then you're gonna love this.. absolutely top notch stuff.

I played this back to back with 'Blind Faith' yesterday and whilst it isn't as good, there are some cool tunes on it. You can tell it was recorded at different times by the varying production on it, with the 'older' sounding tunes, which are more akin to the debut, being the best ones on show. It maybe lacks the one killer track and the consistency that the first one had, but it's pretty good for an unreleased album
