This is the debut
album of the US anthemic rock inspired or you can say American radio music
styled band Bridger. My wife loves this album and she's not the biggest fan of
Hard Rock and Heavy Metal and that made me a little confused when I should write
the style on this self titled album from these Yanks.
The first 4 tracks on the album sound quite good, but someting in my stomach
makes me feel like they missed the target after these first four songs, because
they got a great singer in Terry Ilous (Great White, XYZ), but he needs the
uptempo songs to get into his correct voice mode. Glen Brigder on guitar doesn't
get enough room for his talent in these many slow tracks. Some of the songs
sound hollow and is missing something in the sound wall and I can't really put
my finger on it.
The cover of Black Sabbath's "Heaven and Hell" as the finisher makes no sense
to me, in what direction does the members in Bridger want to go? Or did they not
enough own material to fill this disc? And never try to make a cover of a
perfect song, and Heaven and Hell with Dio is one of those that should be left
The tracks that I'll put in my Ipod is: Don't Push Me, On The Ledge, How Long
and Tuesday Afternoon. Sorry so say. but, the rest will be put in the trash.
