Living Like a Runaway

Living Like a Runaway by Lita Ford
Released: Jun 2012
Label: Steamhammer
The onetime teen dream's eighth solo album, ostensibly a return to metal inspired by her bitter divorce from the guy who sang for Nitro, touches obligatory bases: Satan ("Branded" and "Devil In My Head"), insanity (mass-murderer tale "Hate" and domestic abuse metaphor "Asylum"), vampires (pop-industrial "The Mask"), wrist-slitting (a Nikki Sixx cover). The title ballad remembers too few specifics about Lita's old band; "Relentless" tackles sexist roadblocks; "Mother" apologizes to her sons. Along the way, she manages a few passable melodies and guitar leads, if not great ones.
