Any fans of this underrated Loudness album? I have been building my loudness collection slowly, and got soldier of fortune at a decent price a few weeks ago in Europe.

I love the sound on this one.

Any fans here?

I'm a big fan Mike Vescera & loudness had some killer musicians in the band. I kind of went backwards through Mikes career. This was one of the last cd's I bought with him on. I have I think most of the cd's he's been on. Some were hard to find.

Soldier of Fortune is a kick ass song!

I dig everything Vescera sings on. This is my favorite Loudness album. Not a bad track on it.

Great album. If you haven't checked it put yet, get the follow up with Vescera, On The Prowl. It's mostly rerecorded earlier Loudness tunes given a slightly different tone in the style Of Soldier Of Fortune.

Their albums are too damn expensive to acquire in my part of the world. Only own 4 so far. Planning on ordering a couple more soon. Lightning strikes is next on my want list.

Vescera's a killer vocalist but I like Loudness better with Minoru Niihara on vox. Minoru may not be a great singer in the tech sense but his singing style gives Loudness a certain "character."

When Loudness replaced him with Vescera, they sounded like any other nothin' special hair band.

IMO of course.

I found this album on cassette at Goodwill for like 50 cents years ago when I was first getting into metal, so it's one of my sentimental favorites. Their guitarist, Akira Takasaki, is f*cking phenomenal and that album is no exception.
I can understand why a fan of their earlier stuff wouldn't get into it much, though. It is infected with some of that late 80s metal cheese.

I just stumbled upon their 92 self-titled release on YouTube while sampling On the Prowl, and it sounds much better than that OtP (which seems even more drenched in cheesy party-metal vibes, just based off of the first track alone). The s/t is aggressive, darker, and heeeavy. I'll have to seek it out sometime.

I like the Vescera albums. I think they're good but I, like FF, prefer them with Minoru. But the only time I ever got to saw Loudness live was on the Soldier Of Fortune tour.
