EDITORS’ NOTES

Tom Cochrane's solo debut is full of grown-up emotional truths—"Emotional Truth" is even one of its songs—but it also rocks. After a decade-plus fronting Canadian hitmakers Red Rider, he knows how to craft a great hook, and the one on "Life Is a Highway" is as great as vintage Springsteen and Mellencamp. "Everything Comes Around" pledges love in a country style, and "Get Back Up" has a lowdown blues sound to suit its tale of love with a junkie.

A truly GREAT album from the 90's

I always liked Red Rider. Then I heard Tom Cochrane on Rockline (radio show with host Bob Coburn). He was promoting this album and EVERY track they played was killer. Tom made a masterpiece and more people should know about this truly great LP.
The first five songs alone are worth the cost of the download. My faves are "No Regrets," and "Sinking Like a Sunset," with a great na na na chorus. Most people bought this CD for "Life is a Highway," the big top 40 hit for TC. However, I might not even put that song in the top 5 for this fantastic CD! Tom was an addict and the truth is the songs on this CD/LP are about overcoming the addiction. Survival, hope, resilience and inspiration are woven through each well crafted song.
Download Mad Mad World and your will be happy happy that you listened to me.

Rock on.

Life is a Highway is one of the best written rock songs ever ! Tom C is one of the most underrated artists ever ! His band Red Rider was awesome.
