"Fierce Bliss" (Silver Lining Music; 2022)

Reviewed by Snidermann

Ann Wilson, legendary singer and co-founder of the band Heart,  has released a rock recording that shows the depth, grace and style of this killer artist.

The name of the recording is "Fierce Bliss." It is a showcase of what happens when an extremely creative artist travels around the U.S. with her husband during the pandemic. I saw Heart in the late 80s and I have to say it very well could have been the best concert I have ever seen. Along with her sister Nancy and their band, Heart put out one top quality rock'n'roll concert.

Right from the start, "Fierce Bliss" makes you realize you are in the presence of an artist doing what they do and doing it great. Like most good rock music, it is simple with great production value and amazing talent. Together, they make "Fierce Bliss" one of the best rock releases I have heard in quite some time.

Ann does some cover songs of the Eurythmics' "Missionary Man," and she does justice to Robin Trower’s cut "Bridge of Sighs." Vince Gill lends his talent to the Queen song, "Love of My Life." All together, "Fierce Bliss" shows the world once again the talent, range and charisma of the phenomenal talent of Ann Wilson. This is one feel-good recording that made me feel great just by listening to it. And, frankly, why else would anyone listen to music, anyway?

Rating Guide:

A classic. This record will kick your ass.

Killer. Not a classic but it will rock your world.

So-so. You've heard better.

Pretty bad. Might make a nice coaster.

Self explanatory. Just the sight of the cover makes you wanna hurl.
