5.0 out of 5 stars More Acoustic Than Their Others (Just As Good)
heartbreak station is another great blues rock album from Cinderella. This one is not as hard rockin' as Long Cold Winter, Still Climbing or Night songs, however the music, lyrics and overall talent of this band is showcased once again. You will find there are a few more acoustic tracks on Heartbreak Station. The song One For RocknRoll may take on a country like feel...

3.0 out of 5 stars The More things Change...
An anomaly of an album. It has some utterly sublime moments but others of such backward-thinking inanity that you wonder who was making the decisions. As you may be able to tell, this is not as consistent as their previous 2 releases, but there are a handful of great songs to enjoy. It also shows the band turning almost solely to the blues and/or blue grass sound that...

5.0 out of 5 stars More Acoustic Than Their Others (Just As Good), 23 May 2010

This review is from: Heartbreak Station (Audio CD)
heartbreak station is another great blues rock album from Cinderella. This one is not as hard rockin' as Long Cold Winter, Still Climbing or Night songs, however the music, lyrics and overall talent of this band is showcased once again. You will find there are a few more acoustic tracks on Heartbreak Station. The song One For RocknRoll may take on a country like feel because of the slide guitar but I can hardly find evidence in this release to call it country (like previous reviewer) nor can I say it's all ballads either. That statement is ridiculous. This is straight blues rock and the only reason it separates itself from other Cinderella releases in my opinion is that they lowered the distortion a notch or two and threw in more acoustic (neither of those make a song a ballad or country.) Once again Jeff LaBar throws out some gritty guitar riffs and soaring solos. Tom Keifer deliveres more real life lyrics with that same amazing voice he was blessed with. If you are a fan of Cinderella you don't want to be left without this release. One of the best things about Cinderella is they never release the same album. They are constantly evolving and I'd hate to see one of their shows without hearing selections from Heartbreak Station. So open your mind buy this album and enjoy some of the best Blues Rock 'n' Roll available... Oh yea and ONE ballad named Heartbreak Station and a straight Funk track called Loves Got Me Doin' Time. Enjoy. I know I did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Third Disc, 13 Feb 2011

This review is from: Heartbreak Station (Audio CD)
Following on from the more blues influenced 'LONG COLD WINTER' album,this is a superb disc,at its core blues based rock with a hint of country with the occasional acoustic flourish.A damn fine disc that resonates with me even after all these years.

Opening with the raunch n roll of 'The More Things Change' & 'Love's Got Me Doin Time' the band are on fire while the superb single,should have been a worldwide hit,'Shelter Me' leaves you grinning from ear to ear.

The album is superb from the majestic title track, the country tinged 'One For Rock n Roll',the delightful 'Winds of Change',there isnt a duff moment here.

This was the bands moment,clearly the label was behind them big hitters such as ZEP'S John Paul Jones arranged strings on a couple of tracks ,Uriah Heep's Ken Hensley provided organ on several tracks.

Sadly grunge was around the corner abd the album nor band never reached the heights they should have,this remains a lost classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heartbreak Station - A 5 star album, 27 Dec 2003

This review is from: Heartbreak Station (Audio CD)
Cinderella have certainly experimented since their first album, 'Night Songs'. From the pure hard rock, to blues in 'Long Cold Winter' and then a country feel is given to their third album, 'Heartbreak Station'. Every style they play, they reach perfection in my opinion! This album certainly lacks no talent. Tom Keifer's unique gravelly vocals remain. And as well as some great rock tracks such as 'The more things change' and 'Sick for the cure', there are some beautiful tear jerkers, i.e the title track - 'Heartbreak Station'. They've taken their talents to another level. It's clear alot of passion has been put into this album and the guys have done themselves proud! It's a change, but a MUST for any Cinderella/rock fan. 5 star album!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 30 Nov 2011
This review is from: Heartbreak Station (Audio CD)
Absolutely love the album. One of my top five albums ever. Bought it when it first came out, but felt best give it a review, whilst desperately trawling for any new stuff. Why oh why did they not push on from here. (apart from Tom's bad throat!!) Bluesy, Rocky, Acoustic'y in one album. Their glam styling does not reflect the album content. If you like your rock music, then no doubt you like blues inspired music - this album has both.

3.0 out of 5 stars The More things Change..., 18 Jan 2012

An anomaly of an album. It has some utterly sublime moments but others of such backward-thinking inanity that you wonder who was making the decisions. As you may be able to tell, this is not as consistent as their previous 2 releases, but there are a handful of great songs to enjoy. It also shows the band turning almost solely to the blues and/or blue grass sound that they hinted at on Long Cold Winter. And this is also where it voth fails and triumphs.

Opener 'The More Things Change' is a very good song. It's not life-changing, just a great, catchy track that mixes blues and rock together effectively to produce a single-worthy release. 'Love's Got Me Doin Time' however is a blues riff too far. This has genre cliche written all over it. It's got trumpets and slide guitar and a chirpy, faux-blues riff that smacks of pub band. Very MOR and very average. 'Shelter' is better but still not perfect. The gospel chorus is actually a plus and it does grow on you. The title track is possibly the best track on the album. It is unashamedly cheesy and has an element of the blues without being overwhelmed by it. In essence it is a good old-fashioned rock stadium ballad. And it is brilliant. 'Sick For The Cure' is not a bad follow up either. It's intricate, technical and catchy, as well as fun.

'One For Rock and Roll' and 'Dead Man's Road' are head scratchers. These are by no means bad songs at all but they somehow do not belong on this album. Both are almost acoustic, very stripped bare ballads of the country-blues variety. 'One for Rock N Roll' is the better track. It's thoughtful and well structured and well played. 'Dead Man's Road' is a little too long and relies too heavily on slide guitar showing off. But it's ok. 'Make Your Own Way' and 'Electric Love' are a bit boring and could have been excluded a la track 2. 'Love Gone Bad' is a passable rock song with a good chorus. And the closing ballad is decent enough, just not enough to get excited about any further releases.

Some great tracks, a lot of ok ones, some bad ones. If you would like to start listening to Cinderella, I would suggest Long Cold Winter and then Night Songs as these are indicative of their sound, whereas this album feels more of an experiment.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lost the plot?, 21 Mar 2002
This review is from: Heartbreak Station (Audio CD)
This is a bit of a strange one! If you're a fan of Long Cold Winter or Still Climbing then this may be a dissapointment. The idea here seems to be raising the bands profile in the U.S.A. This is reflected in the almost Country(ish) sound. The main reason I like this band is that they rock when they want, but when they try a ballad the quality is still there. Unfortunately this album did nothing for me. The rock is replaced with... ballads, and the ballads are replaced with... more ballads. If any other "Rock" band had produced this then the result might be better, however Cinderella have done themselves no justice. If you're new to the band try Long Cold Winter or Still Climbing as here you'll see just how good they are when they want to be. Overall not too good, but certainly not desperate.
