Album Review

Quarterflash's three charted singles highlight this best-of package that compiles their sturdiest material, as well as a few of their soundtrack contributions. Both "Harden My Heart" and "Find Another Fool" broke the Top 20 upon the release of their self-titled debut album in 1981, and proved to be this Oregon band's best singles. Two other songs from the album, "Critical Times" and "Right Kind of Love," appear here also, followed by the seductive rock flow of the number 14 hit "Take Me to Heart," from 1983's Take Another Picture. "Night Shift" appeared on the soundtrack of the same name which is now out of print, while the B-side to "Harden My Heart," entitled "Don't Be Lonely," surfaced on the Fast Times at Ridgemont High album, and "Make It Shine" was included on The Gremlins soundtrack. Even though Quarterflash harbors a definitive '80s-pop sound, the rich saxophone and sultry vocals of Rindy Ross give this average-sounding chorus-and-bridge rock a slightly distinct edge. Both "Talk to Me" and "Walking on Ice" come from the effortless Back Into Blue album released in 1985 which marked an end to their career. Harden My Heart: The Best of Quarterflash does what a hits collection should by leaving the unnecessary luggage behind while presenting all of the group's familiar music.

No 'Night Shift'?

You could have thrown half the album away and left 'Night Shift' and it would still be worth getting. 'Harden My Heart' is still a great song while 'Find Another Fool' was excellent (better live, though) and "Take Me To Heart" has great high school memories - but without the song "Night Shift", it's just not complete. But I do have to say that Rindy Ross is a great singer with alot of passion in her voice and delivery. She is the main reason why this collection is worth the 3 stars. But no "Night Shift"? Don't worry, it's not on Rhapsody either.

Does anyone notice anything wrong with track 10, "make it shine"?? look at the artists name, i thought it was quarterflash, not quaterfash, thats the first time i've seen itunes make a mistake.

Good Best Of. Would have loved if they included, Nowhere Left To Hide from their second album!
