1 stars 'A Million Hearts / Gold n' Glory' - Faithful Breath (Single)

Taken from Faithful Breath's 'Gold n' Glory' album, the 'A Million Hearts' single and title track are a selection of two of the best tracks from the record. Faithful Breath was a band who originally played a symphonic brand of progressive rock, but as the two tracks here show, by the time the 80's rolled around, they had resorted to changing their style to a generic brand of cock rock heavy metal. While these are the best two songs from that album however, the quality of these tracks still reveals Faithful Breath as a clone of the more successful band Accept. Faithful Breath were smart to change their sound to appeal to a larger audience, but the way they did the music was not original in the slightest. 'Gold n' Glory' is a fairly typical heavy metal track that does not make it hard to visualize some hairy men wailing around in a room with guitars and a hefty stockpile of liquor. The better, more memorable track here is 'A Million Hearts', and for all intents and purposes, it is a fairly good song, although once again, it is a rehash of the power ballad formula. 'Gold n' Glory' was not a great album, but it was a decent piece of clone-formula heavy metal. This single may hae the best tracks, but on the merit of this band's songs alone, it's difficult to recommend them track-by-track.
