Savatage - Fight For The Rock album
Fight for the Rock is the third full-length album by the American heavy metal band Savatage. It is their first album with new bass player Johnny Lee Middleton, who has since become the only member to appear on each subsequent Savatage album since. Released in 1986, it is largely regarded as the band's worst release by both fans and band members, with the band referring to it as "Fight for the Nightmare". Jon Oliva said in October 1994, "I've never really been fond of that album.
Stalking The Neon Cities Standing In The Shadows. 1986 Atlantic Recording Corporation for the United States and WEA International Inc. for the world outside of the United States. Manufactured in Germany by Record Service, Alsdorf. Pressé en Allemagne par Record Service GmbH, Alsdorf.
Fight for the Rock (1986) is the album after the "Power of the Night" album which had amazing production for it time due to Max Norman. This is quite a step down in production as the snare sounds very tinny, although its not high enough in the mix to be anoying. Alright now production aside, this album is very tasty musically and should not let down any Sava fanatic such as myself. This album is filled with synths but it actually makes Fight for the Rock more interesting because its something Savatage never did before. the name points out exactally what this song is, rock n fuckin roll. Very good song that kind of reminds me of Dio.
Fight for the Rock was Savatage's blatant attempt at commercial success after being prodded in that direction by their record company. The result was an album that seemed like a pale imitation of Van Halen. Even the band have pretty much disowned this one. The title track is a decent enough metal anthem, but the mellow Badfinger cover, "Day After Day," is a definite mis-step, and "Out On Streets" sounded much better on the raw version that appeared on Sirens.
Fight For The Rock" is a great and highly memorable album. Hyde" and "Red Light Paradise" are flawless Savatage classics. This album has thick and atmospheric production, lush keyboards, a beautiful guitar tone, not to mention that Jon perfects his voice here. I highly recommend this. One person found this helpful.
