No don't agree with that. I'm not saying Into The Fire is a bad album - I think there are some brilliant songs on it. But my problem with it now is my problem with it the first time I heard it - BA just sounds too depressed in the way he sings it. Its not an UP album its a very DOWN album. I love Native Son, Rebel, Only The Strong Survive, Home Again, Heat Of The Night - it is a good album - but if its a masterpiece then its a very darkly painted one. Bryan doesn't sound like he is enjoying himself singing those songs.
