    Mr. Big’s "Gotta Love The Ride" says it all in some ways. Both musically and lyrically, the opener of their new album ...The Stories We Could Tell not only sees the iconic rock group engage a blazing return-to-form, but it evinces a willingness to evolve and marked progression. You can feel it in the groove, which snaps with a modern wallop.

    At the same time, Paul Gilbert remains one of history’s most fiery rippers, pulling off each lead with panache and power. Meanwhile, Eric Martin sounds utterly pristine during "Cinderella Smile", which is bolstered by Billy Sheehan’s instantly recognizable bass strut. The ballad "Just Let Your Heart Decide" evinces their knack for a hook, while Pat Torpey bashes up a storm on "The Light Of Day".

    Ultimately, you’re going to want to ride to …The Stories We Could Tell, and you’ll love it too.
