Jimmy Page at his best!
Quality 80's Rock n' Roll

"You know, I really despise people who write reviews about bands who can't seem to retrieve the past or what they've done in the past. Sure, you can't deny the greatness of Bad Company or Led Zeppelin, but the Firm, Mean Business, was a fantastic album. If you dig Jimmy Page or Paul Rodgers and you want to hear something newer than Led Zep or BC, give this album a shot. I loved it and have enjoyed it for almost 20 years."
Not as good as their debut, but still excellent.

"It's 1986 and The Firm has released their 2nd and (sadly) their final album. Mean Business sounds alot different than its predecessor. The first seemed more melodic and meaningful, and Mean Business seems more serious, and directionless. That's not totally bad, because sometimes directionless can be fun. That's quite the prize on this gem. Too bad this had to be the last, because The Firm was a good group while they lasted.
Fortune Hunter - Upbeat rocker about the life of gambling, the changes in the song make it a surprising one.
Cadillac - I liked this one alot because it's very dark, Rodgers has great moments on this, and Page's guitar sliding highlight this.
All The King's Horses - A synth-dominated classic written by Rodgers. This was excellent because of the chords, as well as the chorus.
Live In Peace - Definitely more musically arranged than Rodgers' version. Rodgers' piano, and Page's solo make this a Firm classic.
Tear Down The Walls - My favorite song of the Page/Rodgers written songs. This was a really fun song, and Rodgers gives a superb vocal performance.
Dreaming - A fine composition written by Franklin. The best part is the chorus and Page's playing. Probably one of my least favorite songs on here.
Free To Live - The opening riff should tell how awesome this song is. The chorus is sweet and the solo Page plays is perfect.
Spirit Of Love - Probably my least favorite Firm song, it sounds a little too "Adult Contemporary" for their hard-rock standards.
And after that, it's basically all over."
