To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This was a great album when first released and remains so today. I had th3 original on vinyl and this album was an absolute must for my vinyl revisit @n£ collection. Free we’re a great band and Paul Rogers had a very distinctive voice. He remains a great entertainer now and he still has a easily recognisable voice. One of the great albums.
It is sad that this was the last Free album - it could have been the beginning of a great new era and lineup - instead we got Bad Company which was never in the same league. Heartbreaker is a consistently strong offering with well written and performed rock songs and the old free vocals/guitar/bass/drums mix augmented brilliantly by Rabbit Bundrick's keyboards which gives the band sound more depth and layers without ever stealing the show. Wishing Well is a classic but Heartbreaker, Come Together in the Morning and Common Mortal Man are all classic Free. The loss of Fraser (RIP) proved not too serious - the album doesn' thave his funk influence but Rodgers and Bundrick more than filled the songwriting gap. This remains my favourite Free studio album, Free Live is a super example of them on stage. I think even Koss could have been replaced but after this album things fell apart and the members dispersed. Pity.
This is definitely one of Free's best albums. I still own a copy of 'Heartbreaker' on vinyl and regard the four songs on the first side as the best that the band ever laid down. The remaining tracks are pretty good as well. This album and 'Fire and Water' are my two favourite Free albums. They were a great band and I'm pleased to have a copy on CD as well. Highly recommended.
I ordered this CD expecting to receive the Heartbreaker album supplemented by bonus tracks as per the descriptor, but instead received a bog standard copy which I already own. So 4 stars for the music as it's a fine album, 1 star for a totally misleading descriptor.
Loved it. Classic album that hasn't aged. I used to listen to this way back in the 70's but because we didnt have a record player I had to cycle to my friends house several miles away to hear it. I made the trip regularly and Heartbreaker was on the turntable (admittedly sometimes there was also a trip to a pub where they would serve us as a payoff for the cycling as well).
