There are some albums which have left their mark on rock music for good. Some albums which gave inspiration to thousands of musicians so as to play, write and record music for the first time. Such an album is Russ Ballard's homonymous release which came out in 1984. 1984 was a time when music did rule the radio waves. Not fancy cover artworks, or album titles etc… just music, which was more important than everything else. Russ released an album which was meant to become a classic. You see the 80s was the time when the most rock/hard rock classic albums were released.

Russ Ballard takes advantage of his unparalleled song writing skills throughout the Book Of Love album. Needless to say, Ballard was one of the great U.K. singer-songwriters who was also a brilliant guitarist. Always worth the ears of Argent fans, Hank and the Shadows fans and more, Ballard’s unique ability to merge guitar driven progressive rock and pop influences continues moving in the right direction with the classic rock vibe of Book Of Love.

A welcome return after a long absence. The 13 song CD opens with "Only Love Can Save Me" which is probably not the most convincing number on the album, though it does grow on you with listening. The next two songs are Ballard at his best. "Stay With Me Tonight" and "Vibrate" are uptempo catchy beasts that stick in the mind. On the whole this is an album that you have to listen to a few times to get into it. The effort is worthwhile because this is undoubtedly an excellent collection of new songs, six co-written with Chris Winter.

Fine follow up to the previous album. Same style, same standard. Also "Your Time Is Gonna Come" had considerable commercial potential. "The Fire Still Burns," the title track of his 1985 album attained No. 15 on the Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart.

Into the Fire is cut from the same cloth as Barnet Dogs and is perhaps even slicker, thanks to the introduction of synthesizers. It is, however, a bit more varied than the single-minded Barnet Dogs, finding space for the power ballad "Where Do We Go from Here" and the soft rock "Strangers," which suggests the hits he'd soon have writing for America.

Multi-talented writer/singer/producer Russ Ballard. Ballard has had a long and distinguished career, first as a member of The Roulettes, Unit 4+2 and Argent, before going solo. AT THE THIRD STROKE is one of Russ Ballard's best solo albums ever. Among the great songs here is "Cast The Spirit", which is a song about making sure that you do what your heart says is right.
