5.0 out of 5 stars Heart drove it home with this one. November 23, 1999
Format:Audio CD
Trying to overcome the 'Heart' comeback album, Ann and Nancy, surpassed it with 'Bad Animals'. This album is not only brilliant, but beautiful. 'Wait for an Answer'. was my favorite off this one. Ann's voice is so full of desperation, that anyone who's ever had a broken heart will fall into the trance that this song creates. I always considered this album to be a 'concept' album because of the feel of it and the way the songs go in a particular order. 'Who will you run to?' is a song of breaking up, followed by 'Alone'. The song finally ends with 'RSVP', also a great song which leaves the listener guessing whether they got back together since 'Who Will you run to?' or if it's a new love all together. This album is one of my very favorites when I'm depressed or 'Alone'.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent Heart album (IMHO the Best)!! June 27, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This CD is by far my favorite of Heart's. I think it was one of the first CD's I ever bought. I remember listening to 'Alone' and marvelling at the complete lack of hiss in the totally DDD recording.

But the songs hold up too, as I soon discovered. 'Who Will You Run To' is great, but one of my personal faves is 'Wait for an Answer'. I love how the song builds in fervor and intensity. Of course, any song Nancy is lead vocalist on ('There's the Girl' and 'Strangers of the Heart') goes right up there. Nancy has a beautiful voice.

'Alone' is a cool tune as well as 'Bad Animals'. Great stuff. This CD harkens from, what amounts to the Best 6 years of popular music, 1985-1990. This era includes U2 - The Joshua Tree; Peter Gabriel - So; Genesis - No Jacket Required; Midnight Oil - Blue Sky Mining, as well as others I think are slipping my mind right now. That's quality company. It's an awesome follow up to 1985's self-titled album. Sadly, I didn't find the follow-up, 1990's 'Brigade' to be as good, perhaps since this was such an excellent album. Still, if you want to get a great taste of Heart, this is an excellent start.

Heart is an excellent band and they also do some excellent renditions of Led Zeppelin tunes, like 'Rock and Roll' and a personal favorite 'Battle of Evermore'

5.0 out of 5 stars A 23-years-too-late review November 28, 2010
Format:Audio CD
I can't believe such a classic album has only 37 reviews. A monster album like this deserves better. So here I am, giving this album a review a bit too late.

I'll make it short: all the tracks could have been released as singles and reached the Top 40.

5.0 out of 5 stars HEART'S 2ND BEST! November 15, 2005
By DAMPER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If there is a song that represents the music of my life it would be "Who Will You Run To"(WWYRT) from Heart's Bad Animals recording.

This was the second best recording I bought in the 1980s(Heart 1985 being the first) and within the top 5 of the best recordings I have ever bought. The high-powered, shotgun-blast effect of WWYRT was Heart's apex in making high-powered rock & glam.

Ann Wilson was at her best musically and professionally with Bad Animals.
At her 1987 stage show she carried herself as someone who had accomplished great things and she sounded the best ever, but she didn't break down into frenzied dances like she did at the 1985 show. In my view, she didn't do the dances at the 1987 show because she already proved what an incredible stage performer she was. Just as in her WWYRT video, she performed and sang mega-cool.

Just as a 1960's young adult might have been impressed by the Beatles and thought of a "Hard Day's Night" as being the song that represented all that was great during the 1960s, "Who Will You Run To" represented the best of the 1980s to me. Being a younger adult at the time, WWYRT also represented a high-powered, energized, exuberant & happy state of mind and style of carrying oneself.

WWYRT sounded so great it made me feel cool that the song I loved was also a big radio hit. To me it also represented an accomplished & mega-cool way of projecting oneself.

That powerful feeling & energized way of carrying myself is gone, but the greatness of hearing Ann Wilson singing "Who Will You Run To" is still there. It's timeless.

The song "Bad Animals" shows off Ann Wilson's high-volume, exquisite voice, but the song is too slow-paced instead of being a fast-paced rocker like it should have been.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Music December 22, 2008
Format:Audio CD
This album which was released in 1987, was one of the albums made a big change in Heart's music. It had become soft but beautiful music. These girls (and guys) had no trouble to show their softer side. The songs like "Alone" and "RSVP" indicate that the personal feelings are important in life as well as in music. Yes, they might sound as tough as in "Little Queen" or "Dreamboat Annie", someone would say that they have changed. I disagree with that. They still have rocking songs such as "Easy Target" and "Bad Animals". I like this quite much because it has beautiful songs but I still find "Little Queen" as my favorite album although albums like this and "Brigade" are very good.
Stars: Alone, Who Will You Run to, There's the Girl

4.0 out of 5 stars Not to be Confused With BAD HEART by the Animals October 1, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Just kiddin'. Wanted to see if you were awake.

Well, I'm the first to admit that neither set of Wilson sisters (Ann and Nancy or Carnie and Wendy) ever really grabbed me, musically speaking. But it's also true that periodically, someone will mention to me (or maybe post on Amazon or someplace else) that they think Ann Wilson is just about the greatest female rock singer ever. More than Janis? Grace? Chrissie or Stevie? Yes, they insist, and actually,they have a point.

Ann Wilson does have some set of pipes, no denying. Whether she is superior to any of the artists listed above (or any number of others) will always be moot--and subject to the whims and tastes of individual listeners everywhere. But after listening to this record some 18 years after its release, I would have to concede that Ann is probably the greatest woman ARENA rocker ever. How much stock you want to put in that depends largely on how you feel about that kind of music.

Power ballads and bombastic art rock were NEVER critical faves, and many of us regular Joes and Joannes may not have been exactly enamored of the genre either. But we all have our little guilty pleasures. One of mine was "Magic Man." But that in itself wasn't quite enough to make me a total Ann fan. I thought "Barracuda" was a little screechy and generally over the top. And "Little Queen" and other 70s entries pretty much made no impression.

I was intrigued when I learned that they had briefly taken up co-writing with one of their old school friends who had gone on to major in German literature (as I had). I was curious as to how that would all pan out. The prospect of Rilke-rock seemed pretty intriguing. But I never quite got around to checking it out.
