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.

Customer Reviews

Reviewer is on drugs

I don't understand why the review says that "can't get enough" and "easy come, easy go" had little impact. Those songs were in heavy rotation on MTV and on the radio, so they must have done well. Either way, the album is well-crafted, fun, energetic rock, whether or not Kip Winger had beautiful hair.

Solid album

Most of what gabatxo said was true. Miles Away was on mega-heavy rotation. This album still didn't have the impact as their first album. The major problem with Winger was that the guys in the band were high-level pro's (Kip was once the bass player for Alice Cooper) so the song writing was very methodical and the recording almost too perfect. Even today, most of these albums (from the late 80's) are much more listenable sonically than the albums recorded today. Kip did take it to the extreme with the 5'oclock shadow, spandex and perfect hair, but musically they were very solid.


Love WINGER. Kip is one of the greatest musicians of all times. I love this production but hey, iTunes, make KARMA available, please!!
