Format: Audio CD
i first bought this when it came out,i was hooked th en & still am now.In hard rock circles their other albums are more well known but this is soooo much better than "7 wishes" or first l.p "dawn patrol". the most well known song is"the secret of my success" from the michael.j.fox movie,but this is not a true picture of the rest of the record. opening with the sledgehammer crunch of the title track,each track has bounce & originality about it."the color of your smile" should have been a big hit single,perhaps these guys didn`t have the looks of a bon jovi or warrant. Each song has some great lead guitar work courtesy of Brad gillis & Jeff watson,particularly side one closer "rain comes crashing down" the band are still together today & this one for all melodic rock fans out there.

A very good underrated Night Ranger Album 1 July 2002
By scott gordon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Night Ranger was under a lot of pressure from the record label at the time that they were making this album to come out with an album that would be more TOP 40 and this is what they came up with. The album I will say is alittle more radio friendly, however, it contains some really good guitar work as done by Jeff Watson and Brad Gillis. These two guys are wonderful guitar players. I consider these two guys as a great power duo along the lines of Glenn Tipton and K.K. Downing. This cd has it's great power ballads as well as it's rockin' side. This album is one of the greatest Night Ranger cd's ever. It's a shame that they don't bother to play any of it live. The last cd that Alan Fitzgerald to play on until they reunited in 1997 on the "Neverland" release.

They will never understand ... 27 July 2007
By Jazzcat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Critics of hair metal albums will never get it. I surrender, I'm tired of trying to explain them what this music means for us that lived the eighties as "twenties" (being guitar players by the way!). I'm even tired of trying to explain them that melody is the most important thing in music and that you don't have to judge a tune for the gear the band used at the time or for their look. They will never understand the irresistible mixture of chops and melody that hair metal music was about. So I quit. Unlucky for them they are probably too young to understand: if it is so they probably lived their youth in the absolute overall worst period for music (grunge ARGHHHHHHHHHHH) so I'm sorry for them. Or probably they are too old so they grew up in the pre-Van Halen period, so to me are dinosaurs. But in one ways or another they were not in their twenties in those days and didn't live the energy, the excitment of the eighties and of the good music that was produced at the time. I do, so I can't do nothing but absolutly love this album which to me stands out as one of the best of those days. I remember that I used to pick my friends up with my car for our "guitar safaris" with this music cranked out loud ... we traveled, we did buy guitars, we had fun, we learn, we laughed, we loved with this music. It's in my heart. I love this album from its beginning to its end and even if many guys who either love this album pointed out "The secret of my success" as the worst tune here, I don't know, I don't agree, I still like it very much! It seems to me that it perfectly fits the mood of the album instead. But the tune that I love the most is absolutly "Love is standing near" which is a stellar example of hair metal (rock with strong melodic hooks plus guitar chops,... try to beat it guys, try it). But in the end say whatever you want people, I'm absolutly happy to be a "poser guitar player from the eighties" just like Jeff and Brad here =))) and to have my memories coloured by this music, which is extremely warm, melodic, in two words just beautiful music! Totally mindblowing! Sorry if you're not one of us.

I don't know why this album is not on the same level as Hysteria or New Jersey. Night Ranger never got the respect that they deserved. Every track on this album is definetly a smash hit, since the begining that every band wish to have written the song Big Life to open their concerts until the end that shows what a great ballad should be with Hearts Away.
The Secret of my Success has nothing to do on this album, it's clear that they included this song because the record company thought that it was a movie song and they had to or the guys in the band were drunk when they included it.
Although, this album it's not as very guitar driven as "Dawn Patrol" or "Midnight Madness" it shows you that Jack Blades is a master writing songs when he gets with a great team (He did it with Tommy Shaw too). It shows you too, that Rock'n'Roll as this one, it's fun and should be fun always.
Night Ranger will not be remembered for Big Life (maybe for Midnight Madness) but anyway yo have to have this album if you are waiting for a great melody on a hard rock song.

Simply the best feel good 80's rock album ever 30 Oct. 2000
By Mr. G. Poyntz - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If this album had been released by a more well known artist in the UK like Bon Jovi it would have easily spawned 4 top ten single. This is the sort of album you should have in the car for hot, sunny, top down days. I defy anyone not to instantly fall in love with Color of your Smile and I know Tonight. In fact i think the weakest song on the album is the most famous The secret of my Success. This album was invented for bedroom air guitarist everywhere.

Don't hate me because I'm beautiful.. 7 July 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Unquestionably, a most maligned release by Night Ranger [in my opinion, unfairly]. This has been termed over-produced and wimpy, but I disagree. The sound was indeed embellished by the hand of David Foster [keyboard god, westcoast music guy, responsible for early-80s Chicago & Tubes, and probably many other things], but I still hear plenty of energy & distorted, harmonizing guitar-duels between Brad & Jeff, and the passion of the band's youthful angst is still there. There's no argument that for the price at which most retailers are offering this disc, you cannot afford to pass it up.. It's quintessential [in my opinion, at the very least]..
'Carry On'..
