Sonically HERO never strays too far from country-pop – at least for too long – which is good for maintaining a coherency throughout but will probably limit the albums appeal more than was intended, which is a shame as Morris has a strong and versatile voice that should be heard.  Sugar opens HERO with a slinky, funky riff which is discarded for a brutally country-pop – yet somewhat catchy – chorus, making it a shame the lyrics are a little insipid and bubble-gum pop, and Rich continues with lyrical content that isn’t especially original, though the main riff is almost worth sticking around for – if only because The Joker by Steve Miller Band is a good song.
