For so many years that album was just the song you posted, "Alive and Kickin'," "Green-Tinted Sixties Mind," and, of course, "To Be With You." That's all that ever came to mind when I thought of Mr. Big, really, for a long time. Those were the songs that always made the playlists.
Then two years ago, I believe, I threw it on, because it came up in conversation, and I wanted to give it a fresh listen. And holy fuck! I was absolutely dumbfounded. How did I not recognise the greatness of the remaining tracks?
It hit the hardest with this song. It's pretty much everything I want in my Melodic Hard Rock!
Now this is purely speculation, but I recall back when they released the music video for "Freedom," Deen had said in the comments that it was the first song he'd ever written, and was excited to write more. I wonder if Frontiers didn't allow him to record anymore of his own songs, because, you know, ADV.
That's just the first thought that came to mind.
To be specific, this is what Deen said:
I am so happy to announce that Frontiers and I have made amends, and are moving forward with some amazing new albums like Gioeli/Castronovo, Revolution Saints and more!! I couldn’t be happier and more grateful for this renewal of our relationship. Serafino supported his belief in me not only as a drummer, but as a lead singer many years ago. Revolution Saints gives me that platform, and I’m excited to share my voice with the world. Stay tuned for updates and more exciting news as we bring all of this to new life.
Well they are all similar yes, but this is my favorite album, because it's the best production, but their one of those bands that if you like them, your really not gonna be let down by any of their albums, cause they al do sound similar, I think this is the most quality, but their all good.
