All Music Guide - Gautam Baksi
One year after Bad Company's multi-platinum self-titled debut, the British band returned to London to record a follow-up. Utilizing material written earlier in 1973, vocalist and songwriter Paul Rodgers wrote two acoustic-based rock ballads that would live on forever in the annals of great rock history. "Shooting Star" and the Grammy-nominated "Feel Like Makin' Love" helped Straight Shooter rise quickly through the charts to reach Billboard's number three spot both in the U.S. and U.K. However, critically and commercially the album never achieved the tremendous success of its predecessor, largely due to the lack of strong follow-up singles and supporting tracks.

Simon Kirke stepped out from behind the drum-set to help produce and write "Anna" and "Weep No More," two slower and less aggressive ballads indicative of the overall diminishing quality of the album. Following the release of Straight Shooter, Bad Company headlined their first North American tour.

    Clean, Classic Rock At Its Peak

    The 60's had its "classic rock", as did the 50's before it. Well, here we have a healthy dose of some of the cleanest classic rock of the 70's. The mid-70's caused us to suffer through alot of bad music (no pun intended), and then we were rewarded with disco. Mercifully, I graduated in '76 and never had to publically humiliate myself attempting to dance disco. This, Bad Company's second hit album came on the heels of their original Bad Company album. Their hits and popularity through these two albums were seamless. In a time when good rock was getting harder to find, I spent many Saturday nights cruising to this eight-track. If you're a fan of strong, simple rock-n-roll, this CD won't disappoint.
