Album Review

Winger's second album, In the Heart of the Young, continues in the same vein of slick, progressive-tinged, radio-ready pop-metal featured on their debut — almost what Asia or 90125-era Yes might sound like as hair bands. The melodies and guitars still twist and turn in unpredictable directions, but the material on In the Heart of the Young isn't always as musically interesting as the songs on Winger. Plus, the inclusion of more ballads detracts from the overall energy. Still, there's enough here to make the album worthwhile for anyone who enjoyed its predecessor, especially in the absence of a best-of collection. "Miles Away" became a Gulf War love anthem, while "Can't Get Enuff" and "Easy Come Easy Go" are fine rockers that nevertheless failed to make much of a dent in the charts.

Fantastic song writing and musicianship

This album is SO good. Everybody knows that Kip Winger is a fantastic song writer and musician and this record proves it. The songs are extremely melodic and the arrangements are very pompous and grand. Winger signature ballad Miles Away should rank up with the best of the heavy ballads such as Wind of Change, Nothing Else Matters etc. Other melodic heavy tracks like Rainbow in the Rose, In the Day We'll Never See, Baptized by Fire (with incredible guitar intro) and the title track are all worthy of praise. This band could have gone way bigger if grunge had not kicked in around the beginning of the 90s. I can only recommend this album highly!! Less filler than on their debut album, but still not quite as good as Pull
