I dusted off this amazing CD and after 20 years am still impressed at how good it is.

I know a lot of people hail "Freight Train Heart" as being JB's best album. I get that because it is a melodic rock CD but to me, it doesn't show the real JB. It is an americanized version of him, specially formated to break the US market (similar to what happened with Michael Bolton - including some of the same musicians).

IMHO, "Two Fires" has no filler. It perfectly combines his hard rock, melodic and Motown roots. The album rocks and grooves. I can really hear a lot of Motown influences in several songs.

To me, JB cannot do anything wrong. He had albums that were maybe more emotional (the first tow, "Flesh & Blood" which is brilliant) but "Two Fires" is the only one IMHO that has everything that makes JB one of the most brilliant singers ever.
