Firehouse's self-titled debut was a slick, polished collection of pop-metal. While louder numbers like "Don't Treat Me Bad" sounded good on the radio, the true strength of the record was the group's knack for power ballads like the Top 10 hit "Love of a Lifetime." Firehouse had trouble coming up with a consistent set of high-quality material throughout their debut, but when they landed on a power ballad, they never sounded less than fine. ~ David Jehnzen
