Biography

Hard rock band Cinderella gained success in the mid-'80s, turning out a series of million-selling albums and hit singles while placing music videos in heavy rotation on MTV. By the mid-'90s, the group's mass popularity had subsided due to professional setbacks and perceived changes in taste. But they continued to tour regularly well into the 21st century.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still at the top. 21 Jun 2010
Format:Audio CD
Still Climbing was Cinderellas fourth and thus far, last studio album. Recorded in 1994, music was changing and leaving most of the glam rock bands of the 80s behind. Cinderella had been maturing musically ever since their debut album, adding bluesier elements to their hard rock sound and by the time Still Climbing was born they were much more than another washed up 80s band. However, Still Climbing sold poorly and Cinderella broke up not long after. Nevertheless, in this record Cinderella created their best work and the fact that it is so severly overlooked is a crime.

The album is full of great moments. Opening with the swaggering Bad Attitude Shuffle, the blues influence is again on show. All Comes Down is a fantastic, no nonsense rock song with a cool solo, while the title track smoulders away before catching fire. Standout moments are All Comes Down, the beutiful Through The Rain and the epic The Roads Still Long, which is probably Cinderellas most mature song ever. There is some awesome guitar work on show and some great lyrical moments from Tom Keiffer. The only negative is the inclusion of Hot and Bothered. Recorded for the Waynes World 2 soundtrack, it doesn't quite fit on the album.

The fact that the reformed band ignore this album completely is a real shame. If your a fan of their other three albums this is a definate purchase but if your just looking for a standout rock album to listen to I would highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Band definitely on form 30 Nov 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This has only just been delivered and is on only it's second play - back-to-back with the first - but I think it stands up as well as the first three albums and is a natural progression from those. Great songs, fine musicianship and Tom Keifer's voice has recovered well from his vocal chord operations. Love it already!

3.0 out of 5 stars on the road to nowhere....3.5 stars 15 Aug 2012
By Mr Blackwell TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Despite their high profile circa late 80's & early 90's this practically slipped into the shops with barely a whimper,pretty much no press,most only realised it had been released when the spotted it in the racks. This release catches the band between two stools, the likes of 'Hard To Find The Words','Through The Rain','Road Still Strong' and the title track 'Still Climbing all are excellent and lean on the 2 previous discs wheras the likes of 'All Come Down' and 'Blood From A Stone' retreads of the debut disc.

The rest just plain average,once again Fred Coury fails to get to play drums on a Cinderella album(apart from 1 track ),drumming duties held by Kenny Arnoff,everyone dropped the ball on this one,they should have re grouped after the 'Heartbreak Station' album and released a space giving live album.

Sadly for Cinderella the 'Ball' was over,a sad end to a band with so much potential

3.0 out of 5 stars Long road... 1 Aug 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Similar in quality to their 3rd release, Heartbreak Station, Still Climbing also ramps up the rock n roll. Where the 1st 2 albums stayed in the auspices of 80s glam rock, this and Heartbreak Station broke out of the loose genre shackles and partook of an almost country-style quest, musically. And it worked to an extent. But they never seemed to relive the magic of their genre-bendre days, mixing glam metal with blues and country. And while Still Climbing is still a good album it does not contain any such classics as 'Gypsy Road', 'Shake Me' or 'Nobody's Fool'.

Opener' Bad Attitude Shuffle' is an ok slice of rocky blues but no way to begin an album. ' All Come Down' is a little better, and after a while the broad sound settles into a passable rock n roll number with a gospel feel. 'Talk Is Cheap' is the first quite good track. It's unabashedly glammy in nature albeit rock n roll in practice, but it has a good hook and a decent chorus, just don't expect to be hooked straightaway. Ballad 'Hard to Find the Words' is also very good but needs time to settle also. A lot of the melodies here are very subtle and get lost in a couple of spins. It's no 'Don't know What Ya Got Til its Gone' but it's ok. 'Blood from a Stone' is another more fun track with lots of screeching guitars and another decent chorus. No classic but one of the better tracks. The title track is perfectly placed smack in the middle of the album. It's thoughtful, understated and really very good. It can sound a bit 'Young Guns' in places but it does the job well.

'Freewheelin' is another similar to 'Talk is Cheap'. It is with these more upbeat tracks where the album actually comes into its own. Very good.

3.0 out of 5 stars not up to scratch. 15 May 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Got this based on the reviews i read here on amazon, but bar a couple of good tracks it is poor. Long cold winter and Heartbrake are far superior. I have played it twice and it will stay on the shelf where it belongs.
