Casanova - Casanova (1991)

It was time to dust this one off again last week and what an incredible album it is. 
Everything from monster hard rock songs to beautiful ballads. Great vocals by Michael Voss and stellar riffs / solos by Stephen Neumeier. The 2010 Divebomb Records remaster is a must have also.

Follow up ‘One Night Stand’ from 1992 was solid, but it doesn’t top the debut for me. 

Killer from top to bottom - Anyone else a fan of this one?

Yeah, a Classic. 

"Back to the Wall" and "Don't Talk About Love" are killers.

Always been a fan of Michael Voss and his many projects. His stuff can be a bit hit or miss at times, but when he's good, he's very good.

Of his many releases, I think "Demon Drive - Burn Rubber" is my favourite.

Another top album, I also like the Mad Max - Night Of Passion release,bit heavier and not as classy/glossy as the aforementioned two  :)

My actual favourite Casanova track is probably "Seal It With A Kiss" from "One Night Stand"  :)

Yes, one of my favorites! "Love Lies" and "Sticky Sweet" are my go-to songs on this album.

And I can see why some people don't like Voss' voice but it's so distinct and powerful. I'm a fan for sure.

His voice always reminded me of early "Bonfire" Claus Lessmann and that's cool with me.

The one-two hit of Bang Bang and Sticky Sweet is amazing!

One of my first true loves. A true masterpiece of an album.  Not a song on this I don't absolutely love, with 'Love Lies' being my favourite of a magnificent bunch. 

To me, this is easily Voss' best release, closely followed by the follow-up Casanova album and 'Heroes.' The reason, you ask? Love or hate his voice, Voss sounds like he dropped every single ounce of passion for his craft into the first three Casanova albums. Mad Max were and are still pretty cool, but it sounds to me like these were the songs that really meant something to him. And the guitar work is sensational those first two albums too. 

Voss was a part of plenty of good albums after this, but to me a lot of them sounded like he was just phoning it in. Casanova never had that vibe for me, even if 'All beauty must die' was a slight letdown. Despite 'On My Love' being a classic Casanova song. 

Anyway, awesome disc.

Man, I got confused.
All the songs posted bar 1 didn't make my keepers.

Living A Lie is the standout by far for me
Hollywood Angels
Burning Love
Ride The Wings Of Freedom
