Paul Sabu has produced mixed, written songs and performed with such artists as Alice Cooper, David Bowie, Little Caesar, Lee Aaron, Shania Twain, The Motels, Only Child, SABU, John Waite, Robbie Neville, Malice, Wasp, Little America, The Nelsons, Tattoo Rodeo, Silent Rage, Elvira, Teri Tims, and Madonna. I’m not going to go into his movie credits because they are too extensive. The man has massive amounts of talent, to say the least.
“Heartbreak” is a re-release from his 1985 debut with three bonus tracks. Paul mentions, “I think this is one of my best albums, but I was not happy with the sound.” Looking back on the career of Sabu, you can consider him a musical genius that’s missing the mark of stardom. Maybe this re-release will gain him the popularity of a rock star.
Vocally, Sabu has the aura of David Coverdale and the looks of Kane Roberts. The upgrade in this issue sets a huge new standard in sound. The drums have the power of Alex Van Halen, and Sabu’s vocals on the opening track “Angeline”are outstanding. There are many melodic tracks that will allow you easy listening, and pounding rock anthems. “Heartbreak” would make an excellent addition to your collection. With the addition of the three new bonus tracks, you’ll get a taste of different styles of music. “Cassie” being the best of the three, which has that classic ballad feel, and could be an AOR hit. “Shake It Out” is pure pop and “Street Angel” is rock solid.
