After 25 years, this disc is still amazing. It's real music, beautifully written. And at $5, it's a steal.

This is definitely THE most underrated album of 1987. After an eleven-year absence in the music scene, Robbie Robertson finally knew that fans of The Band needed a solo album from him. However, there are almost no traces of The Band on this album. Instead, Robbie Robertson puts forth a dense, mainstream album and has at his production aide, none other than Daniel Lanois (who came of producing classic albums for Peter Gabriel and U2 - they both appear on this album). Just about every song in this album is a pure classic. My absolutely favorite is "Broken Arrow." It is a very lovely and subtle song that has the theme of love but no mushiness. Plus, it even has an unlikely back-up group consisting of former Frank Zappa drummer Terry Bozzio, L.A. session bassist Abe Laboriel and Peter Gabriel (on keyboards!). "Sweet Fire Of Love" is one of the most searing-tracks on here (even though I'm not in U2's stuff), and the most powerful tracks on here are definitely "American Roulette" and "Hell's Half-Acre," both driven by Tony Levin's Chapman stick. My least favorite is "Testimony" - I don't know why, it just is. Still, this is one album that deserves to be in Rolling Stone's Top 500 Albums of All-Time. I never tire of listening to it. (Unfortunately, Robbie Robertson has never been able to match this album's success.)
