This is the perfect example of a mediocre album. I bought this record(not cd)many years ago used when I was in high school. I liked the album oriented tracks, Love Alive, Barracuda, Little Queen, and Kick It Out as the guitar licks and arrangements are quite ear catching to this day. Other than these "lead tracks", there isn't much else. Say Hello and Treat Me Well have interesting riffs but are not as complete as the aforementioned "lead tracks". And the rest of the music sounds like they were trying to record enough music to fill the length of the record. Go On Cry merely consists of Anne Wilson yelling these words throughout a meandering riff. A bargain bid purchase is all this disc is really worth.

Hot on the heels of their platinum debutDreamboat Annie, Heart released the more ambitious, less accessibleLittle Queen. Fortunately for them, the record contained the monolithic "Barracuda," which included one of the meanest guitar chugs since Deep Purple's "Highway Star." The song rocketed to No. 11, and the album quickly went platinum. The rest of the album, however, is less than lustrous. The mandolins that are sprinkled through the album are supposed to sound mysterious, but they're pretty laughable, and songs like "Cry to Me," "Say Hello," and "Treat Me Well" don't pack enough punch to awaken even the lightest sleeper.--Jon Wiederhorn
