ONE OF DALTREY'S BETTER ALBUMS
Mike S | Front Royal,Virginia United States | 03/02/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)
"I really like this album more than any other Daltrey solo album that I've heard. There are 6 excellent hard rocking songs on this CD that are some of his best work; DON'T TALK TO STRANGERS,BRINGING DOWN PARADISE,UNDER A RAGING MOON,AFTER THE FIRE,LET ME DOWN EASY, and MOVE BETTER IN THE NIGHT. The rest of the songs are good, but not great. Roger's vocals are strong throughout the album as well as the production,mixing, and musicianship of the session players. If I was to buy only one Roger Daltrey CD, I would pick this one."
After the Fire

"New Years Eve 2003. . .I was standing in the kitchen listening to VH1 Classic when I heard the opening notes to After the Fire. I couldn't beleive it! I yelled out: "Oh My Gosh!" and ran to my living room, grabbing the controller on the way and collapsed on the couch, wondering how this song would make me feel 20 years later. I had only seen the video once or twice back in 1985 and never heard the song on the radio , but it had always stayed with me. It came out two years after the death of a friend of mine. I was madly in love with his girlfriend and when he died I spiraled into a deep depression which I never fully recovered from. This song stayed with me and seemed to say everything I couldn't say or be to her (even though it isn't about unrequited love). We were the classic star-crossed lovers; I was the heavy-metal band poor kid from the wrong side of the tracks, she was the rich girl who probably thought I'd never amount to anything and told me I reminded her too much of her fallen lover. (12/31/03) The lump in my throat grew, the hot tears rolled down my cheeks and it was all I could do to keep from bawling as Daltrey belted out the lyrics. My teenaged daughters and my wife stared, wondering what was the matter. . . A Beautiful, Powerful song that will haunt my soul for eternity. . . ."
An 80's Rock Masterpiece!

"Roger Daltrey stepped out on his own in a big way when "Raging Moon" was released. Mostly spurred by the MTV play of "After The Fire," this album had a great combination. Daltrey in fine vocal form, a good backing band, good production and great songs.
Some have said this was like a Who album, and perhaps it was, though Daltrey has staked out territory for his voice on other recordings (witness his work on "Daltrey," doing Dave Courtney/Leo Sayer tunes).
This one just rocked from end to end--"Fire," "Move Better In The Night," and the title track are among the better tracks, while Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance contributed "Let Me Down Easy," which had a minor bit of play on MTV and radio (I think).
Roger also handled the ballads again--"The Pride You Hide" and "Love Me Like You Do" were well done.
Drummers and likewise also get a huge thrill out of the title song's use of 8 drummers, including Stewart Copeland, Mark Brzezecki (I hope I got his name right) of Big Country and others. Interesting, but I wished they'd cranked the drums a bit more.
Exceptional, one of Daltrey's best on his own."
