She has been in the music business since the early 1970s, making history as the singer in the band HEART. It's been a long time and so she was able to fulfill a long-cherished wish, namely the release of a solo album in which cover songs by recently deceased companions are represented. It's always a double-edged sword, but I'd like to be taught better.

The songs were all refined by their old producer from band days Mike Flicker and it was definitely worth it, first of all. The first song we get to hear is "You Don't Own Me" by singer Lesley Gore. In contrast to the original, Ann Wilson managed to put her rocking stamp on the song, because the original from the 60s was very sterile. With “I Am The Highway” she sets a moving memorial to Chris Cornell, which the interpretation goes to the heart. This also applies to the Tom Petty song "Luna", because Ann's warm voice makes it sound completely different from the original. David Bowie's song “I'm Afraid Of Americans” also got a new coat of paint. Compared to the somewhat spacey original, her version sounds rocky and totally different. Outstanding song that completely convinced me. A tribute to the deceased CREAM We get bassist Jack Bruce with “Politician”, which comes across as a bit more powerful and doomy but is very close to the original.

Leonard Cohen's “A Thousand Kisses Deep” also sounds great, because with Ann's smoky voice it contains that great rhythm & blues feeling. He also underwent a great transformation EAGLES Song "Life In The Fast Lane". The warm and very accentuated voice makes this song a highlight. The next song, “Back To Black”, pays homage to Amy Winehouse, but unfortunately I like the original a lot better. Nonetheless, Ann Wilson presents her own version very emotionally and getting under the skin. The song "A Different Corner" by George Michael, on the other hand, sounds essential, and Ann Wilson's great voice makes it seem much more emotional. The song "Baker Street" by Gerry Rafferty forms the end in a rocky version that is just great.

I'm not really that big of a fan of cover albums, but Ann Wilson's is perfect. She dared to tackle songs that are not commonplace and provide them with a more than worthy interpretation. Ann is still very good at voice and maybe there is a solo album of her too - I would love it.
