Bad Company: Holy Water
Paul Sexton, Select, August 1990
THEY CAN'T win, Bad Company. In the 70s. anyone who harboured a hope of hipness roundly lambasted their swaggering rock style. Two decades on, suddenly it's OK to admit you used to strike a bedroom pose to the strains of Run With The Pack. Meanwhile, the band have transmuted into an unashamed, undiluted American AOR format and, yup, we hate 'em again.
