3 stars Definitly weaker then Innocent Victim, but still good. Ken Hensley was losing interest quickly and it shows. Still, Gerry Bron - then their manager as well as producer - decided to pick up his songs instead of the others, which reputedly infuriated singer John Lawton (and it was the main reason for his leaving soon after the release of this LP). And who can blame him, for his songs, along with the one's by Box, Bolder and Kerslake were far more inspired and interesting then Hensleyīs stuff here.

Personally I like this album very much. The band could still make tight arrangements and their vocal harmonies were great. Songs like Iīm Alive and Woman Of The Night are great rockers. And none of the others is really crap, although quality varies a lot here. One could only wonder how far this band could have gone if they stayed together a little longer and worked out their differences. Anyway, I think Fallen Angel is a good album, but not essential, that's for sure. Itīs a personal opinion only. I think it is far better than Firefly, for exemple. And beter than much of what came next bearing the bandīs name in the following years. 3 stars for PA (half star more overall for personal reasons).
