Henry Paul's Return And A New Sound Mark This One
The Footpath Cowboy | Kingston, NY United States | 11/07/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Henry Paul returned to the Outlaws for SOLDIERS OF FORTUNE, but the sound did not return to the long guitar jams of the early years. Instead, the Outlaws introduced new elements, like synthesizers and drum machines, to create a sound rooted in the Old South but suited for 1986. This album is not on the level of the band's 1975-1982 heyday, but it's still worth five stars for successfully compromising the 70s Southern boogie style with the new sounds that were then taking over the airwaves. Besides, even slicked-up Outlaws is more real and soulful than, say, the very best material by Duran Duran or Firefall."
Henry Paul Returns !!!
Mark H. Novicki Sr. | WEST HAVEN, ct United States | 11/02/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Henry Paul returns to the Outlaws . His sound and style helps bring the sound of this band back to the triumphant sounds of the early days of songs like Hurry Sundown and There Goes Another Love Song . Cold Harbor is a great tune that sends chills down your spine recalling this battle of the civil war . The title cut as well as Whatcha Don't Do showcase the bands rocking side as well . It's a shame that rock radio never gave this album the time of day . But sadly by the mid 80's , rock radio was not giving the time of day to southern rock anyway and killed record sales for this type of music . If you love this band's early stuff , then buy this CD ."
Just not The Outlaws
Kirk Nelson | Arizona | 10/05/2007
(2 out of 5 stars)

"I have been a fan of The Outlaws since their I first heard their music back in '77. Their first three albums still stand as some of my all time favorites. After Playing to Win I kind of lost my interest in their music and I suspected it might have been the loss of Henry Paul that caused such a drastic change in their sound. After picking up their greatest hits CD I found I loved their rendition of Ghost Riders and thought I would see if any of their post Playing to Win albums were rated highly by Outlaws fans. Since this CD showcases the return of Henry Paul I thought this could be the ticket, especially after reading some of the reviews posted.


This is such a far cry from what they were that it could be almost any other band. Granted, there are two songs that I find somewhat enjoyable (hence the TWO star rating) but they are still not "Outlaws" songs. I know the 80's were a rough time for 70's bands as they struggled to embrace the electronic revolution (and subsequent over use) of the music industry but they simply didn't need to stray this far. I know The Outlaws are going to release a new album soon and I hope it harkens back to those early days when the guitar jam was an art form. Green grass and high tides forever!"
