Walk On Fire - Mind Over Matter album review

The best Melodic Rock you can get this month

Cover art for Walk On Fire - Mind Over Matter album

Like so many other AOR acts before and since, Walk On Fire released a critically praised debut, glowed brightly and vanished. A mere 28 years later this sparkling sequel, Mind Over Matter, reunites several originals, including the gravel-voiced Alan King and guitarist Mike Caswell, later of Brian May’s band, who passed in September. Happily, it’s worth the wait.
