You Better Run set the stage by nearly going Top 40, then Hit Me with Your Best Shot and Treat Me Right rocketed Benatar into full-fledged superstardom. Her #2 LP from 1980.

Format: Audio CD
This disc sounds absolutely stunning -- the result of the excellent remastering job by Mark Chalecki @ Capitol Mastering Studios, Hollywood. Nice work!

I was torn on purchasing this release, seeing that Capitol hadn't bothered to upgrade the artwork and package. I figured that the label probably wouldn't bother much with the audio either. I was wrong! We get the same old CD packaging from the original release with one exception -- that is, the brilliant audio upgrade! Considering that the music sources from 1980 it sounds nearly as crisp and clear as any recording today. I didn't think so much depth and range could be tweaked out of a 26 year old recording, but here it is! Pat Benatar finally gets a long overdue remastering of her classic 1980 album.

I wanted to knock this release down a star or two due to the lack of major packaging upgrades or inclusion of bonus tracks. However, after hearing the stunning remastering work done on my favorite track, "Wuthering Heights", I could not rate this release any lower than 5 stars. "Wuthering Heights" originally appeared in a "remastered" form on Pat's 1999 anthology, "Synchronistic Wanderings", but I was disappointed in the sound, thinking more could be tweaked from the recording. That version sounded rather flat and buried in the speakers, but this one is loud and clean with it's soaring, crashing guitars. Album highlights such as "Hell Is For Children" and "Hit Me With Your Best Shot" have never rocked harder!

As much as I was looking forward to Pat Benatar remasters in a possible 5.1 audio release these CDs have never sounded better. Now bring on the remaining catalogue remasters!

For those who write Ms. Benatar off, pick up this classic from 1980 and see what you'll say NOW.
Every song on here is magical.
Treat Me Right kicks off the mood for this album and you know from the first line "You want me to leave, you want me to stay", that you're in for a killer album.
You Better Run remakes an old 60's song and gives it headbanging treatment.
Never Wanna Leave You is more in the vein of her Get Nervous sound, and it's great too. You see a more playful Pat on this track that usually lurks behind on the rest.
Hit Me With Your Best Shot -- who hasn't heard this song? It's 2:51 of pure perfection. The song launched Pat into the superstar stratospeare and has a very nice double entendre.
Hell Is For Children is one of the most haunting songs ever recorded. And it is possibly the greatest record Pat recorded.
Little Paradise is filler, but it's got a very intresting beat.
Prisoner Of Love is one of the most melodic tracks on this album. Try to get this song out of your head.
Wuthering Heights is a remake of a classic Kate Bush record. Pat's lounge roots show through on this, she sings like you've never heard her before.
I'm Gonna Follow You is the most underrated song of her career. She even did a video for this song. Another one of her highlights.
Out-A-Touch ends the album with a bang. She proves she's still a "tough cookie"
DO NOT MISS THIS ALBUM! It's 20 years old and it still rocks.

Format: Audio CD
A superb album of tuneful uptempo poprock. My faves include Hit Me ..., the disturbing Hell Is For Children (..."hell is for children/and you should not pay for your love/with your bones and your flesh"...), the vibrant Little Paradise which should have been a huge hit, her version of Wuthering Heights and the rollicking Prisoner Of Love. People who like Blondie, Joan Jett, The Cars, and even Bon Jovi will enjoy "Crimes Of Passion."

In recent years, I've been digging deeper into some artists that I enjoyed but never owned any albums from at the time.I was familiar with "Treat Me Right", "Hell Is For Children" and of course "Hit Me With Your Best Shot"--which gets relentless airplay even to this day, that and "Heart Breaker" from her debut.
I decided to get this based on the overall 5-star rating here on Am, and what an amazing album! Every single track is as good as any of the three I knew. I've been playing it over and over again, and the whole thing, every single track, just keeps jumping out with catchy tunes and freshness like it was put together and released yesterday, not in 1980--1980! If you said that's the greatness of classic rock and why they call it that, I'd certainly agree. But this has a really stunning timelessness, and the music is just so good. If you're like me, you may well find a new Patty favorite. I love EVERY track on this wonderful disk, but I find that "Wuthering Heights" really showcases not only the power--which the usual radio-selected tunes do--but also the beauty of Patty's voice. Overall, you will get a real sense of the richness and versatility of Patty's voice from this. And then you will start thinking what next to get out of her catalogue.
It rocks at moderate hard throughout, lightening up just a bit in places with some great results. Anyway, buy this. It certainly canNOT be passed up at the $7.97 Am. is asking for it. Throw in another disk or two you've been wanting and you even get free shipping.
Anyway, if you've heard and enjoyed any Patty at all, you will love this and be very happy to own it.
