iTunes Editors’ Notes

Domestic abuse is perennial fodder for talk shows, but Pat Benatar made it the unlikely centerpiece of many of the songs that built her career. Powered by a powerful, often overtly melodramatic voice that belied her diminutive frame, Benatar's 1980 sophomore album became her commercial breakthrough on the strength of tracks like the snarky double-entendre "Hit Me with Your Best Shot," the quasi-feminist demand "Treat Me Right," and the cautionary "You Better Run," songs that also earned her heavy exposure in MTV's early days. The urgent "Hell Is for Children" reinforces the album's often-bleak emotional undercurrent, its goth-pop conceits working better than Benatar's cover of Kate Bush's first hit, "Wuthering Heights."

Customer Reviews

A must have album

Adrenaline-pumping visceral, pop-rock at its best. Pat sells every song like its her last. You won’t find a bad track on this album. If you are planning a prolonged stay on a deserted island…..make sure you bring Crimes Of Passion

Best Album Of All-Time

I know that this album is 34 years old, older than myself, but in my opinion it's the best album every created by any artist in the history of music.
