“Life was like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.”
The quote from Forrest Gump really sums up my feelings about the record after listening to the record for a couple of weeks. Eric Carr “Unfinished Business” is a really difficult record to have a strong opinion about one way or the other.
The first couple of days I just tried really hard to understand what kind of “creature” Loretta wanted to make with this release (of course I understand It’s a tribute to Eric). It goes in all different directions with cover songs, new recordings of Eric songs and original demos. When It’s good It’s really great and when It’s bad the record is terrible.
Let’s take a little run trough of the songs first.
