I miss Paul Rodgers, but if the Brian Howe version was a new band and there wasn't a comparison to be made, I'd probably think Bad Co. was still an above average outfit.

the songs are:
walk through fire
if you needed somebody
lay your love on me
boys cry tough
with you in a heartbeat
i dont care
never too late
dead of the night
i cant live without you
"This band can't be called "Bad Company". Listen to "Burnin' sky" and you'll see what I mean !"
Holy Water Theme

"I really love the song Holy Water, with its big-power-song rhythms and lyrics. Bad Company provides an entire album wrapped around that feeling.
If you've heard Holy Water and don't like it, then let's be honest, you probably won't like this CD. That's what the whole CD is about - blasting guitars, loud vocals about overcoming obstacles and getting to your goals. If you buy a new age CD about oceans, you get lots of soothing songs about the ocean. If you get Holy Water, you get lots of charge-you-up, you-can-do-it songs about relationships. That sounds fine by me!
Walk through Fire is of course about facing obstacles to get to someone. Stranger Stranger is about a hot, humid daydream. The other songs have their own variations, but mostly this is a long power-opus to the power of the individual who Knows What He Wants and is Willing to Go Get it.
There are plenty of other CDs out there for those seeking complex guitar solos and multiplex harmonies. Sometimes you just want a belting-it-out song that screams of leather jackets and smokey bars. This is the one!"

"I am a big fan of the Bad Company with Brian Howe at lead vocals. I believe this is the best cd from his era. Songs like: Stranger Stranger, Holy Water, If You Needed Somebody & Boys Cry Tough really show his range & power. Also, there are no fillers on this cd so you can stick in the cd & play it all the way through without skipping tracks."

"One of the better albums to come out in the early 90s! True, this will never be the same style Bad Company we got in the 70s. I think trying to compare the two Bad Company's is like night and day. I think you should just take what each one has to offer and rock!"
