Album Review

Apart from some of the production and some wear on his voice, Let's Hear It for Love could easily be mistaken for an album Benny Mardones released in 1986 instead of one from 2006. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing, mind you: Mardones' success was built on "Into the Night," a moody soft rock single so good it was a hit twice in one decade, and his strength lies within the arena rockers and power ballads that make up this 12-song album. As the title gently suggests, this record is heavy on love songs, meaning that there are a lot of slow-crawling sentimental tunes that are nevertheless driven by big, cavernous drums straight out of the mid-'80s — and when there's a change of pace, as there is on the grinding, slightly sinister-sounding Seger-esque rocker "Innocent Girl" or the surging Eddie Money duet "Let's Hear It for Love," it also sounds like a throwback to '80s album rock. When Mardones has the melodies — as he does on the rockers and on the smooth "How Could I Love You More" and the relatively sprightly "Could We Fall in Love Again" — this is enjoyable stuff for anybody who has a taste for either Mardones or the softer mainstream pop of the '80s. But the singer just as often gets bogged down in treacly, turgid emoting that will please his devoted fans but will turn away those casual fans who only know (and only love) "Into the Night."

Customer Reviews

STILL '' THE VOICE ''

anyone who is a fan will really enjoy this cd. i own all this mans great songs and can only hope he stays with us for many many many years to come. "" Like a Hero In The Night "" is bound to become another great hit , just as INTO THE NIGHT did some years ago TWICE.

Very emotional

I liked it, the music was very emotional and his voice is wonderful. I will say though, if you are looking for strict love songs, beware, these songs are very moving, some of them with everlasting love, even after the loss of the loved one. It may not be the best one to put you and your loved one in the loving mood, but great for remembering loved ones.

Singer/songwriter and Maryland native Benny Mardones made a huge splash with his '80s hit "Into the Night." The song made the Top Ten twice, a first for a solo artist. Originally from the 1980 album Never Run, Never Hide, the song was also included on his self-titled 1989 release. Though his subsequent releases like 1996's Most Requested Songs and 1999's Angel didn't have quite the same chart...
