Desolation Angels is the fifth studio album by the English rock band Bad Company. The album was released on March 17, 1979. Paul Rodgers revealed on In the Studio with Redbeard (which devoted an episode to Desolation Angels) that the album's title came from the novel of the same name by Jack Kerouac. The title was almost used 10 years previous to name the second album from Rodgers' previous band, Free, which in the end was called simply Free.

Desolation Angels managed to forge ahead through a few more years before finally calling it quits in 1994. The release of the Feels Like Thunder box set in 2008 prompted original guitarists Robin Brancher and Keith Sharp to start up the old machinery, and by 2012 the band was playing live again. In 2014 Desolation Angels released a new EP, The Sweeter the Meat, and in 2016 they celebrated their 30th anniversary with a reissue of their eponymous debut album.
What’s impressive about Desolation Angels is less the quality of the music than the kind of music the band has now chosen to make. Fully half of the new album consists of medium-tempo ballads, songs as garrulously melancholy as the Jack Kerouac novel from which the LP’s title is taken. Kerouac’s book was an exhausted excoriation of the aging writer’s themes of betrayed friendship and unbalanced love affairs, and that’s also what Paul Rodgers is singing about in such numbers as Early in the Morning and Lonely for Your Love. Rodgers’ vocals and Ralphs’ guitar playing are every bit as ragged.

For Desolation Angels, the band added keyboards, some electronic enhancements and more acoustic textures that brought the sound up to late-70s hard rock levels. Still, no matter what added colors, the band still comes down to the brawny lead vocals of Paul Rodgers, the clutch rhythm guitars of Mick Ralphs, and the restrained and tasteful grooves of bassist Boz Burrell and drummer Simon Kirke. Opening with Rock n’ Roll Fantasy, Desolation Angels continued the veteran hard rock band’s streak of FM radio-ready arena rock anthems. But Bad Company wasn’t satisfied with merely reproducing what had become an effortless plan.
