Slick, big-hair, commercial pop metal. Loads of catchy big choruses. This disc was recorded in L.A. during the L.A. Riots of 1992. Apparently the riots were a bit too close to home and producer John Elefante became a bit freaked out. The two bonus tracks are mellow mixes that John did during that time as some sort of therepy. The original release of this came with a Brave bandana that I still have.

Vocalist James Salters leaves but The Brave march on. Their sound changed on this one. Guitarist Randy Roberts takes over lead vocals. His voice is a bit more bluesy as is the music. "Trust" is a melodic blues based hard rock/metal album. I really dig this disc, even more so that their commercial metal debut. Very cool album cover.
