iTunes Review

Pat Benatar was a major force in pop rock in the '80s. She started her career as a lioness, sporting a sexually aggressive campaign that gave her a powerful voice and an even greater persona to live up to. When she tired of that game, she subdued her image and performed songs that were subtler on the ears. But she never lost her knack for spotting a catchy melody, and these songs—just about every hit a fan would want—are jammed with hooks that permanently stain your brain. "Heartbreaker" was the monster FM-radio staple that established her career, while "Hit Me with Your Best Shot," "Treat Me Right," "Promises in the Dark," and "Hell Is for Children" continued her streak with songs that perfectly balanced rock and pop, with plenty of room for her guitarist (and future husband) Neil Giraldo to guide the band. She embraced the '80s and added a subtle grace to hits such as "We Belong," "Shadows of the Night," and "Love Is a Battlefield." A very good career overview.

Customer Reviews

Best female voice in rock!

Pat paved the way for hard rocking female vocalists everywhere. Go get this album, it's full of her best work.

Quintessential 80's Rock Diva

But not really. Pat Benatar was never a diva in the most common sense of the word as a demanding queen. Instead, she confidently and humbly etched her place in 80's rock as perhaps one of the most understated and now under appreciated vocalists who successfully churned out hit after hit.
Greatest Hits packages rarely deliver such a thorough package of certified hits like this collection.
From the first track to the last track, Pat Benatar delivers powerful rock ballads with future husband Neil Giraldo shredded in lead guitar by her side.
Got it for $7.99, worth every penny.

Pat Benatar's polished mainstream pop/rock made her one of the more popular female vocalists of the early '80s. Although she came on like an arena rocker with her power chords, tough sexuality, and powerful vocals, her music was straight pop/rock underneath all the bluster. Born Patricia Andrzejewski on January 10, 1953, in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, the singer was raised in the nearby town of Lindenhurst on Long Island, New York. Benatar began singing regularly in the New York City area in the '70s,...
