"I loved Walter Rossi's 1st 3 Records.A mix of stunning guitar fretwork combined with emotional ballads and a Latin mix.However,One foot in Hell was made during the Heydey of New Romantics music (Duran Duran/Ultravox etc), and this album I am sad to say will bring back memories of that era (i.e. the tinny keyboards,the electronic sounding drums and the backing female vocals (I imagine them wearing Skin tight spandex and with Farrah Fawcett type hairstyles).This album is geared towards commerciality. Its one saving grace is the awesome Title Track.
It starts off in a slow lazy mood and then bursts into fantastic heavy rifferama.The keyboards and drums on this track
are also thankfully back to how they should sound.The better songs on this CD are the slower ballads that dont have that New Romantics feel.You look at the scene during this period. Other great Hard Rock Canadian acts like Triumph,Frank Marino and even Rush fared a similar fate.The music had to relate to the times, and the mid 80s were one hell of a bad era for Classic Hard Rock.
