A big step in the right direction.

Lee Aaron's 1982 debut album, 'The Lee Aaron Project', contained a who's who of the local Toronto Rock scene including members of Moxy, Santers and Triumph; it created such a buzz that she was invited to play that year's Reading Festival for a memorable performance! But it was 1984's 'Metal Queen' that really established Aaron as one of the premier female vocalists in the Hard Rock scene. The years that followed, however, saw Aaron moving further and further away from her roots, moving from Pop/Rock to Jazz, with her releases at the start of the century being as far from Rock as could be imagined.

So now, twelve years on from her last release 'Beautiful Things', and five years after rediscovering her Rock credentials at Sweden Rock, Aaron releases 'Fire And Gasoline', which while not quite turning the wheel full circle certainly sees her Rocking again. It's still not the Aaron we remember and love, however, as she tries to reinvent herself as some older, wiser version of Rock-moppet singers like Avril Lavigne. Songs with titles such as 'Tom Boy', 'Bad Boyfriend', 'Wanna Be', 'Heart Fix', 'If You Don't Love Me Anymore' and 'Popular' sound like they have been written for some teenage wannabe Rocker, not a singer with the history and class of Aaron.

There are still signs of the girl we know and love on the title track and the afore-mentioned 'Bittersweet', but closing track 'Find The Love', where Aaron does her best Alanis Morissette take-off – with considerable success I may add – shows us where she wants to be in 2016, and it isn't revisiting the halcyon days of '...Queen'.

Back in 1982 Lee Aaron posed topless for men's magazine 'Oui', a decision she later regretted after concluding it damaged her musical credibility. While her musical ability certainly cannot be questioned these days, her career trajectory over the past twenty years has certainly left her Metal credentials in tatters. Maybe one day she'll give us what her long-term and long-suffering fans really want. Until then, the most I can say about 'Fire And Gasoline' is that it's a big step in the right direction.
