CD REVIEW Lita Ford

Band : Lita Ford
Album title : Living Like A Runaway
Label : SPV - Steamhammer
Distributor : Suburban
Release Date : 18/06/2012
Release : CD

Whereas I found her previous album Wicked Wonderland on the weak side, and an album to be quickly forgotten, this new album brings back a bit of the Lita we knew in the eighties and early nineties.  This album has become a very good album, and I would advise any old time Lita Ford fans to buy this album without any hesitation.

Not only are the songs themselves a whole lot better than those on ‘Wicked Wonderland’, but the overall sound of this new album is also a lot heavier.  This might have to do with miss Ford going through some harsh period in her life, since she divorced her husband Jim Gillette, with whom she had been married for almost twenty years.

This album might not bring back the success she had in the old days, but it deserves your attention. Far worse albums are released these days, that do not deserve the attention they get, while little gems like this album go by almost unnoticed.

90/100
