Excellent compilation of an under-rated band
on 17 September 2012
'Cinderella' are an American heavy metal band that aren't as well known or as successful as they should be. Although they released four studio albums from 1986-1994 (three of which made the UK top 40) and had six top 40 hit singles in America. This brilliant compilation of all their hits and recordings spanning their entire cataloge is a great CD for both die hard fans and newbies.
From catchy and hard-rocking songs such as 'Shake Me' and 'Gypsy Road' to haunting and unforgettable ballads like 'Nobody's Fool' and 'Don't Know What You Got (Till It's Gone)' - there is something for everyone. It's the diversity of the band which has always impressed me, and as the short years went on, with each album they embraced different styles from blues to country, and did so brilliantly. Tom Keifer, as well as being a great guitarist, is also one excellent vocalist, with a voice not to dissimilar to AC/DC.
'Rocked, Wired and Bluesed: The Greatest Hits' is a generous 17 track compilation of a great, but heartbreakingly underrated band. The CD's booklet is also very nice, with a fairly good biography, some great pictures, and information about each track, such as where it positioned in the US charts, and which studio album it originally appeared on.
