FireHouse is an American hard rock band formed in Charlotte, North Carolina in 1989. The band reached stardom during the early 1990s with hit singles like Don't Treat Me Bad and All She Wrote, as well as their signature ballads I Live My Life for You, Love of a Lifetime and When I Look Into Your Eyes. At the 1992 American Music Awards, FireHouse won the award for Favorite Heavy Metal/Hard Rock New Artist, chosen over Nirvana and Alice in Chains.

Despite diminishing success in the United States as the decade progressed, the band remained very popular in Asia, mainly in countries like Japan, Thailand and Singapore. FireHouse continued to release new material throughout the late 1990s and into the early 2000s, most of which has successfully charted in Japan. The band has also continued to tour internationally as of 2007, having participated twice in the annual Rock Never Stops

Firehouse is a part of the last wave of glam metal bands that's struggling and survived the grunge invasion, thanks to their double-platinum eponymous debut that put them on the map and won the Best New Hard Rock/Heavy Metal Band of 1991 at American Music Award. Their musical direction is pure melodic hard rock with some sleaze and blues twist, mostly displayed the strength of sing-along chorus, memorable riffs, and happy vibe. Singer C.J.Snare has a very unique and terrific high pitch vocal, similar to Mark Slaughter or Michael Sweet's squeal and Bill Leverty put out some beautiful guitarworks all over the songs.

While they started off bumpy with a weak "Rock On The Road", the next three tracks are enough to set a high rating for this one. "All She Wrote" is a great uptempo classic, "Shake And Tumble" unleashed a nasty groove, and "Don't Treat Me Bad" is an awesome slab of catchy hard rock. "Lover's Lane" is a bad-ass rocker with a really great riffs, "Don't Walk Away" is a good bluesy experimentation, "Helpless" is probably unknown to many but a wonderful closer with big chorus, "Love of A Lifetime" is a timeless ballad and everybody knows this song. However, in my opinion, the true gem of this album is "Overnight Sensations", from the Snare's screamintro to the commercial and bombastic chorus, this song came out as the champion.

The production level is quite thin, you have to crank up the volume for maximum pleasure, but the details are crisp and clear, so it's still an acceptable situation. With couple of decent tracks and the unnecessary instrumental fill of "Seasons of Change", this album still stands high above par. An essential album to have if you're fond of a high quality melodic hard rock output, a classic!

>>>Damn she's hot, especially when she isn't completely pixelated.

Anyway, FireHouse was late to the Glam Metal scene, emerging as it declined in the face of Grunge... C]:^( ... but this has not hindered their ability to catch fire. This debut is one of the best debuts I've heard from any artist, and it is in fact one of my favorite FireHouse albums.

C.J. Snare is an amazing singer. Even in the midst of the hair metal scene, his voice rings out with the best of them (and there are many great singers I could mention). However, he is not alone. Bill Leverty (guitar) begins the album and his music career with a whopper of riffs. "Rock On the Radio" oozes with power and sets the tone for the rest of the album, transitioning flawlessly into "All She Wrote." Amazing album, start to finish.
