Fanatic by Heart
Released: Oct 2012
Label: Epic/Legacy
Heart mean business right out of the gate. The title track is a grimy nugget, equal parts Houses of the Holy and Who's Next (dig that percolating keyboard lurking in the mix). While Ann Wilson snarls "I'm just a fanatic," all manner of odd sound effects surface, then crumble violently. The majority of the album's lyrics are autobiographical, but as with Heart's best stuff, it's easy to get lost in the onslaught of hooks, riffs and laser-like harmonies. Some of the best are to be found on "Million Miles," a propulsive folk-rocker unpinned by strings and what sounds like John Martyn's Echoplex.
