"The Nature of the Beast" Album by April Wine
- The album "The Nature of the Beast" by April Wine was recorded in England following their 1980 European tour and produced by Miles along with Mike Stone.
- The album cover features a blurry live shot of Miles.
- The album was their commercial peak and went platinum in the United States.
- The first three songs on the album are well done, with a mix of new wave style and rock and roll identity.
- Song number four, "Just Between You and Me," is a cheesy ballad that is not good.
- Side 1 ends with a short homage to Chuck Berry called "Wanna Rock."
- "Caught in the Crossfire" is a good song on "Side 2" of the album with lyrics that seem to reference fitting in with new waves while maintaining a rock and roll identity.
- "Future Tense" is a dumb song with robot voice effects.
- "Big City Girls" is another generic rock song on the album.
- "Crash and Burn" features an odd use of the bow-diddly rhythm and a dud chorus.
- "Bad Boys" has cool guitars and catchy melodies but not great solo sections.
- "One More Time" is a good driving rock song with catchy melodies and great guitar work, making it one of the favorites on the album.
- Overall, the album is pretty good but has some filler songs.
