Hang On For Your Life

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Doug Stone
Producer Dennis McKay worked with guitar giants Tommy Bolin and Mick Ronson and later even prima diva Whitney Houston, and he ups the horsepower on Hang on for Your Life, driving these rocky cornfield boys further into the AOR commercial zone. The hell-bent title track of Shooting Star's sophomore sizzler is an obvious and enjoyable clip of after-work blue-collar rock. "Breakout" not a reference to the complexions of this sextet's sizable Midwestern teen audience also hit the airwaves and runs along the same predictable lines.

The hell-bent title track of Shooting Star's sophomore sizzler is an obvious and enjoyable clip of after-work blue-collar rock.
