The Firm: The Firm

Deborah Frost, Rolling Stone, 11 April 1985

The Firm must've looked great on paper – like the merger of two great families. Unfortunately, the result has all the passion of an arranged marriage. Everything about the Firm, from riffs to video, is as awkward and clunky as its Stonehenge-in-stainless-steel logo.
