This album is a pretty good sounding live album, it's fun to listen, and in my mind changed my view of them being just another band from that 80's. Recommended!
Don't know Cinderella? I'm not one to immediately suggest live and hits albums, but this album is VERY GOOD. Almost recommendable as an introductory suggestion. Other than the fact that the band continues to shy away from one of the most underrated albums of all time, "Still Climbing," they do blend just the right amount of their other material to make a PERFECTLY paced setlist. Even their early stuff from "Night Songs" sounds more credible here.
Already know Cinderella and don't have this? I can approximate your respect for them will ATLEAST double upon hearing this album. There are subtle string/keyboard arrangements underneath that are at times more than just decoration. Somebody in this band knows how to orchestrate!!!!! Drummer Fred Coury plays such great violin accompaniments in spots, I'd like to see them play a Kansas cover! I think they could handle it. Listen to the textures on brilliant pieces such as "Nobody's Fool" and "Heartbreak Station" and you may very well ponder why Cinderella will probably have only ever gotten a 15 minute chunk of real fame. Not that I don't think they aren't better suited for a bar/club environment, however....
That is why this album is so good. It is "raw"; not in a sense of crappy production-it was mixed very well! But it is raw in an energetic and emotional sense. The band's staple rockers "Gypsy Road", "The More Things Change", and even 86's "Somebody Save Me", sound almost unbelievably fresh, timeless, and "un-hairmetal". This album is a must as it proves they have a hunger and drive, still today, that most of "today's acts" have no clue about. They never sold out and changed their sound, but they did evolve better than almost any other band in rock history, it's just that few people know it. If I saw them at a club and didn't know who they were, I'd have no idea they were "just another piece of 80's driftwood." Which I maintain they are not!!! And for all of you wondering why I'm using much of my breath on the hair topic and don't care either way, just think of it this way: you are ahead of the rest, these are topics that must be included when seriously reviewing a work by a band such as Cinderella.
My personal favorite, "Shelter Me," is beyond perfect. The most amazing piano solo of the night compliments the usual soulful guitar work. As a piano player myself, it's great to see Cinderella using that instrument for more than just a three chord comp.
Cinderella is not fake and pretensious, and this is the album to confirm that. I believe that so much, I think an AC/DC fan is the perfect example of someone who, if not into Cinderella, might have some respect after spinning this album.
Rock and Roll will never die. And don't you let it. Check out this album.
