a long absence from the rock scene Runaways
icon Lita Ford made her comeback a few years ago
on the giant Festival Stage at the Sweden Rock
Festival. It was one of the worst performances
through my years at Sweden Rock Festival. Awful, incoherent riffs
and an out of sync band and several interrupted
songs where Lita had forgotten the lyrics. A disaster
gig. I was very critical and had absolutely no
expectations when her latest studio album "Living
Like a Runaway" was released in June, 2012. And
what a surprise that album was for me. She swept me
away and gave me a very good reason to always give
people a second chance. Very personal and a very
strong selection of songs convinced me that this lady has a
lot to show all hard rock fans.
The old hit songs 'Close My Eyes Forever' and 'Kiss Me Deadly' are given tracks on a Lita Ford live album. Well, a very raw and down-to-earth rock 'n' roll album with good live feelings and a positive experience. This is one of the best live albums I've heard this year.
I predicted a sub 50 score, but I was wrong and it's much more fun to give a far higher rating than I had in mind.
