CD Reviews

A listenable collection of songs.

"Bonfire is a pretty good German band that plays music in a melodic hard rock direction. This hits package contains material from various albums. All of the tunes are recordings from 1986-1997. Bonfire sounds similar to bands like Bon Jovi and Firehouse. The disc doesn't just include ballads like part of the album's title states--straight-ahead rockers are also included. There's a total of seventeen tracks. Bonfire's musicianship is tight, and their songwriting skills are satisfying. The vocalist does an efficient job, too. I find all of the tracks to be listenable and good. Some of the ones that I like are "Give It a Try" and "Take My Heart and Run." Bonfire also performs a version of Billy Squier's song "The Stroke." I think that it's a cool version. Bonfire is pretty formulaic, but I still think that they are a listenable band. This disc contains a nice collection of songs that I like to listen to from time to time. Worth a listen."
A Pretty Good Collection Of Melodic Hardrock Songs

"Bonfire is not a bad band. Not very original, but they still wrote some pretty good songs that are included on this hits collection. They remind me of bands like Bon Jovi and Fire House. Melodic Hardrock flavor. The songs aren't very memorable, but they still are good for the type of music that they represent. Standout songs are "Give it a Try" and "Take My Heart and Run." They also do a cover of the Billy Squire song "The Stroke." This group is German, but you can't tell--they sound like an American band. That's not important though. Bonfire isn't very original, but they are good musicians that write decent songs. Not bad."
