More Acoustic Than Their Others (Just As Good),
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.
