TBH, Bonfire are generally hit and miss with me anyway. Doesn't matter which version.
Not a band I sit on the edge of my seat waiting for a new release from.
But at times i really like their stuff, which is why this is a bit of a disappointment in that they are covers.
But then I am kind of specific with my covers.
Was just going through The Treatment and the only cover I kept off Running With The Dogs was No Matter What, others were boring.
For me, you either improve on the original - that usually means updating a much older song with a cleaner and heavier sound.
eg: Radar Love
Or you change the original to a different version, while still respecting the original.
eg: Walk This Way
These Bonfire ones for me are the worst kind of covers, they are basically just re-recordings
I cannot get enough from it! Pure silky AOR uncork champagne anthems! They did it again! Of course, I wouldn't mind if they indeed searched for the punchy Crossfire sound. As long as the songs are great.
