ERIKA ‘In The Arms Of A Stranger’ MTM/SPV 085-64112(2004)

Once voted Swedenís worst dressed woman, romantic links with James Hetfield and ex-wife of Yngwie Malmsteen; they havenít stopped Erika releasing several rock albums that have done very well in their native Sweden.

This second set, from 1991, is good, solid yet standard fare, with a commercial edge. Itís fairly typical of what Alice Cooper was doing in the late 80s; itís a very enjoyable listen and almost chart-worthy, if not the most spectacular music around.

Of course thereís the ridiculous European angle on lyrics; 'Rock Me Into Heaven' for example, but Erikaís voice handles the ballads and rockers well. Thereís some excellent guitar work, thatís sadly often over produced. If you like the commercial end thatís not too AOR then itís still well worth checking out.
