iTunes Review

Cinderella singer and leader Tom Keifer was an underrated rock ’n’ roll force (but the girls understood). He sounded like his heroes, the ones he spun on his record player as a kid growing up in the '70s. His voice is equal parts early AC/DC shouter Bon Scott and Cactus’ Rusty Day. Here, on Cinderella's 1988 sophomore album, the tunes recall the gusto of that older generation, albeit through an ’80s commercial sheen. They’re channeling some Humble Pie, Exile-era Rolling Stones, and AC/DC, yet producer Andy Johns (Humble Pie, Free, Television) mercifully lets the songwriting shine through the big production. The soaring “The Last Mile” shows anthemic songwriting strength in spades, as does the bloozy “Bad Seamstress Blues” and the prickly rocker “Gypsy Road.” The 12-string acoustic guitars, power chords, and piano make the semi-tender “Coming Home” the album’s jewel. For a band reductively stuck in the “hair metal” category, Cinderella pulled off authentic rock ’n’ roll with lots of heart. It’s the sound of a band that knew what they wanted.

Customer Reviews

Quite good!

There's obviously some pop fluff here, but overall this is a pretty decent bluesy hard rock album. For my money, this blows away the band's debut album. The slide guitar intro to Bad Seamstress Blues clues you in that this is a different kind of record. That tune, along with Gypsy Road, Fire and Ice, Second Wind, and Long Cold Winter, make this worth owning. Tom Keifer's gritty voice lends itself well to the bluesy style featured here. This is a real gem from the hair metal era and remains the band's best album.

dont know what you got...until you play this album.

This album REALLY put cinderella on the map. This album is a maz ing!!!!

St. Bernard of an Album

This is a great classic rock/blues record that is a great companion during the good times. When things get tough and you lose your way, this record is a loyal friend that will come looking for you and won't quit until you are home safe again. The big hits on this album are great (tracks 2, 3 & 8) but there are a number of songs that fly under the radar that make this a classic record. Buy the whole album if you can but if you're looking for great songs don't leave out buying "Bad Seamtress Blues", "The Last Mile", "If You Don't Like It" and "Take Me Back". This is a ROCK solid effort of an album and a pleasure to listen to.
