I'm a Cinderella fan and I'll admit that their look turned me off in the beginning, but if you listen to the album you don't get Posion/Warrant rock. These guys were taking their cue from AC/DC, Aerosmith, and heavy Stones.
This album is a LOT more bluesy than you'd think. Not blues. But VERY blues based. As other reviewers have noted as well there is a certain darkness to this album as well. There's something a little haunting about songs such as "Night Songs", "Nothin' For Nothin'" and "Back Home Again". "Shake Me", "In From The Outside", "Hell On Wheels" and "Once Around The Ride" all rock hard. The lyrics may not be all that original (admittedly, but then again rock lyrics generally aren't) but the band is just tight and the execution of the whole package is excellent. "Nobody's Fool" is an excellent power ballad, and as a kiss off has a slightly different slant than the usual sappy ones. And "Somebody Save Me" is a great song that's very poppy when you look at it without the overdriven guitar. "Push Push" is a song about sex but it has such a great riff behind it that it overpowers the somewhat formulaic lyrics.
Overall this album musically is so tight, and not quite the glam you'd think, that it comes off as a great, yet not representative mid to late 80's hard rock album.

I remember seeing the cover of "Night Songs" when it first came out and thinking that these were just another bunch of spandex-wearing pretty boys playing by-the-numbers pop-metal. They seemed like a thousand other bands that were gaining popularity at the dawn of 1986.

However, after much coaxing from my girlfriend, and after seeing the video for "Shake Me" on MTV, I could look her squarely in the eyes and say "I WAS WAAAAAAY OUTA LINE!" The music on "Night Songs" is completely in your face rock 'n roll with blues undertones that is so far above the drivel of Warrant et. al that it isn't even funny.

Cinderella (who I just saw last Saturday night in Tampa with Poison) is NOTHING like the (thankfully short-lived) image that was first cast upon us. In fact, by their second album (the excellent "Long Cold Winter") the glam look was mostly history in favor of black leather, and a somewhat darker image. They wanted to be taken seriously and they sure deserved it. From what I witnessed and heard a few nights ago - they still do.

"Night Songs" is a romping, explosion of sounds and heavy riffs that leaves the listener always craving more. "Shake Me," "Nothin From Nothin," "Somebody Save Me," "Hell On Wheels," "Nobody's Fool," and (my personal favorite) the raunchy and suggestive "Push Push" are all incrediblely infectious and top-notch.

Every song on this is a winner. I know the word "classic" is as cliched as any in the English language (especially when it comes to rating things), BUT... I have to use it none-the-less. "Night Songs" is a classic rock album and one of the truly underated debuts ever.

At the same time Bon Jovi finally exploded on the scene with Slippery When Wet, they were also responsible for signing up Cinderella on their label, Mercury Records. Given the considerable softening of their sound on Slippery When Wet, it's no surprise that Cinderella's debut, Night Songs, rocked harder than that of their benefactors, with Tom Keifer's banshee-like voice and harmonies from the other members giving Cinderella an extra edge.

The title track, heralded by tolling bells, has a slow and steady that could fit home on a horror film soundtrack, but actually it's about a burned out trucker who needs the title songs to keep him going on a job that barely gets the bills paid and such.

The lead single, the one-night stand grindfest of "Shake Me" shows them getting in gear, with the team putting their signature sound of pounding skins and heavy guitars into tight rhythmic formation.

Equally as hard-driving was their third single, "Somebody Save Me," which paints a bleak picture of the American dream: "Put your money in a big house/Get yourself a pretty wife/She'll collect your life insurance/When she connects you with a knife." Those thinking of getting married-take heed to that. The despair can be further felt in the chorus, where the law of the jungle is melded with the urban jungle: "somebody save me, I lost my job, they kicked me out of my tree.

Cinderella never got the recognition or exposure that they deserved -- especially this album. That's a shame, because they were (are) one of the most competent and musically worthwhile bands to come out of the 80's hard rock/metal/"hair" explosion.
This is blues-based, whiskey-drenched rock 'n' roll at its finest. Check out Tom Keifer's raspy, almost-screeching howl (reminiscent of AC/DC's Brian Johnson but with a unique twist - more musical and versatile), the steamy metal/blues riffs....and the solo work of one of the more underrated 80's guitarists, Jeff LaBar.
What attracted me most about this band (and still does) is that yes, they were lumped in with the glam hair-bands...but their music (and specifically this album) had a dark, ominous tinge to it...check out "Night Songs", "Save Me", and "Once Around The Ride"...and even in their more "party" songs, minor chords and a dark character surface. It gave their music a serious, threatening edge missing in alot of the output of that time. It's part of that delta blues heritage.
Weaknesses on this album? The production was only adequate - the guitars were missing a bit of bite and the drums were thuddy - but that's ok given it was their debut. The only other point is that they tended to sound a bit similar in style to AC/DC or Def Leppard...listen to "Nobody's Fool" and you can practically hear Def Leppard's "Bringing on the Heartbreak" in the reverb! This is something they grew away from in their subsequent releases though.
Good band...check 'em out, from this album to "Long Cold Winter" to "Still Climbing."
