Suzi Quatro - The Devil in Me
Its got to be a very special release that has Suzi Quatro announce proudly: "The Devil In Me is the best album in my career to date!"
After all, the American rock vocalist would hardly utter such superlatives lightly. Suzi's enthusiasm for her latest offering has many reasons, twelve of them to be precise. Because The Devil In Me consists of exactly a dozen songs, each of them - from the opening track and title song to the final Motor City Riders - a real highlight.
Suzi: "Starting spring 2020, almost one hundred of my shows were cancelled and Richard would also have been on tour with his band had not all concerts been cancelled or postponed. So I said to him: 'We should make the most of our free time, write new material and allow ourselves to be inspired by the things that are currently going on in the world.' I already knew that Richard and I make a brilliant team, after all No Control had been a major success and a very special recording for us. Although I would never have thought that wed be able to surpass it. But everybody whos heard The Devil In Me and all the people who had worked on the previous album have told us: 'This album is even stronger!'"
And every single note on The Devil In Me proves just how good this team is. The album presents Suzis full range of musical diversity plus a number of surprises. From rock tracks such as The Devil In Me, Get Outta Jail, Motorcity Riders and Hey Queenie to fairly unusual numbers such as the pub atmosphere-inspired Loves Gone Bad with its intimate mood or In The Dark which is accompanied by elegant piano and provocative saxophone sounds, Suzi presents herself from a whole range of different aspects. "Richard wanted this album to have a through line, so that you could put any track on, and it just fit he also said he wanted this album to be as important and ground breaking as my first one. So that is how we approached this project, and that is what we accomplished."
