I'm not gonna lie, I was disappointed to find this wasn't a cover of the Vixen song - or vice versa. Vixen often gets called the "female Bon Jovi" so I just assumed it was natural for them to cover each other. Oh well, I was wrong.
This is one of the wholly unremarkable box set songs I keep forgetting exists until it comes up with Media Player on random. I like it, it's fun and it's got that edge their early 80s stuff lacked, and apparently it's a big hit live. I've never seen them perform it, can't judge myself, I'm going off the little booklet that came with the box set. Stellar dvd, by the way, even if most of the footage of them actually doing stuff is straight from Access All Areas.
Nothing really stands out about Edge - it's good, but not phenomenal, it's fun, but there's a lot more fun songs, it's got passion but doesn't even come close to the power ballads in that regard. Good, not great - entirely average.
My Rating: 5/10
