Bad Company's 1974 self-titled release stands as
one of the most important and accomplished debut hard rock albums from
the '70s. Though hardly visionary, it was one of the most successful
steps in the continuing evolution of rock & roll, riding on the
coattails of achievement from artists like the Eagles and Crosby,
Stills, Nash and Young. From the simple electric guitar lick on "Can't
Get Enough" to the haunting bassline in "Bad Company" and the fast
beats of "Movin' On," Bad Company exemplified raw rock & roll at its
best. Erupting out of an experimental period created by the likes of
Pink Floyd, Bad Company signified a return to more primal, stripped-
down rock & roll. Even while labelmates Led Zeppelin's Houses of the
Holy and IV featured highly acclaimed, colorful album artwork, Bad
Company's austere black and white record cover stood out in stark
contrast. Six years later, AC/DC used the same idea on their smash
Back in Black. Throughout the 35-minute album, Paul Rodgers'
mesmerizing and gritty vocals hardly vary in tonal quality, offering a
perfect complement to Mick Ralphs' blues-based guitar work. Several
songs include three-chord verses offset by unembellished, distorted
choruses, filled rich with Rodgers' cries. Bad Company is an essential
addition to the rock & roll library; clearly influential to '70s and
'80s hard rock bands like Tom Petty, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and Boston. –
