Overview

In the 1980s and '90s, numerous women recorded blistering rock, but things were quite different in 1976 -- when female singers tended to be pigeonholed as soft rockers and singer/songwriters and were encouraged to take after Carly Simon, Melissa Manchester, or Joni Mitchell rather than Led Zeppelin or Black Sabbath. Greatly influenced by Zep, Heart did its part to help open doors for ladies of loudness with the excellent Dreamboat Annie (reissued on a gold audiophile CD by DCC Compact Classics in 1995). Aggressive yet melodic rockers like "Sing Child," "White Lightning & Wine," and the rock radio staples "Magic Man" and "Crazy on You" led to the tag "the female Led Zeppelin." And in fact, Robert Plant did have a strong influence on Ann Wilson. But those numbers and caressing, folk-ish ballads like "How Deep It Goes" and the title song also make it clear that the Nancy and Ann Wilson had their own identity and vision early on.

One of the first real rock albums I came to love. These ladies put out a piece of work matched only by their timeless beauty. ''Soul of the Sea'' is a haunting yet sensual tune. Thanks ladies for making tunes to grow up by.

Many artists require a few attempts before they really find themselves. The Wilson sisters knew who they were from the start and this landmark debut album proves it. The songs are well written and the music is well arranged. There is a nice blend of soft, melodic pop and gritty rock. Ann Wilson shows great vocal range and Nancy Wilson displays her musical diversity. If you can buy only one Heart album, that's too bad. But this is a good one to pick.
