4.0 out of 5 stars An undiscovered gem February 4, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I have owned this CD for years but never REALLY listened to it until I heard them do "Disconnected" and "Everybody lay down" in concert, both of those songs rock like nothing she ever has done. I gave it a spin and discovered "Somebody's baby" could have been a top 40 hit. Tradin' down, Ties that bind both SMOKE! This is different in the aspect that it is LOUDER and HEAVIER than Pat and Neil usually do, I don't think the exec's knew how to market it. For the price this is worth the dough as long as your not looking for them doing blues or pop. THIS ROCKS!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! So overlooked and underappreciated. April 24, 2004
By Tom M.
Format:Audio CD
I took a chance on this back when it was released, and the fact that it's an album that I still listen to on a regular basis 10 years later--despite all my changing tastes in music and the 1000+ CDs I own--really says something about it's quality. Not a single filler track on here, with a great variety of styles, from the rocking Everybody Lay Down, Crazy and Disconnected to the wicked acoustic guitar soaked Rise (you'll get chills when she hits those high notes!) The ballads Everytime I Fall Back and You and I have some soulful sweetness in their respective organ and clean guitar backdrops, and Kingdom Key is a simmering, moody number that is my favourite track here. Her incredible voice fires on all cylinders on this one. This is a great pop-rock album that delivers the goods. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Grungy Rock PB Style April 10, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Pat's last album for the label she recorded for since her debut, Gravity's Rainbow is my favorite Pat Benatar album right behind Get Nervous. This may come as a shock (or surpise at least) to others since its probably an album most people don't even know about. For that it's a crying shame. Plus it's one of my favorite Benatar looks ever. That long hair, the 70's inspired clothing, the hats. Awesome! In between her 1988 album and this one, Pat recorded her blues album True Love; regarded as a flop because it didn't sell as well or gain as much airplay as other Benatar recordings, the experience left our girl more in control and happier than she had been in a long time. The idea of recording live and with a group sent her to the studio with a whole new attitude and the organic feel is very strong on Gravity's Rainbow. She rocks it out just like contemporaries of the time, this is after all an album from the 90's so don't look to it for a throw back to Pat's hey day of the 80's because these songs seem more influenced by the grungey punk that was popular around the time. Not that Pat is at all trying to be young and hip and go against her own grain, instead they've taken that raw feel and put it together with their natural ideals of melodic pop. What comes across is an album of sing along toe tappin' rockin' and smackin' grunge pop if you will. Read more ›

4.0 out of 5 stars A Return to Form That Sadly Went Unnoticed October 11, 2002
Format:Audio CD
After her third Album "Precious Time", Pat Benatar seemed to have lost her heart to new wave pop. At the end of the eightiesher career had sagged and felt she needed a change of direction to breathe some life back into it. She tried to do so with a blues album and all it seemed to do was drive the nail in deeper.
Than in 1993 came Gravity' Rainbow, her strongest, hardest collection of songs since Crimes of Passion in 1980. For those expecting over-polished power ballads, you'd better think again. This here is stripped down, back to basics rock n roll with Pats voice ripping through the material with complete abandon. "Everybody Lay Down"( The REAL missed opportunity for a hit single) was a groove laden rocker with Jimi Hendrix styled playing. "Somebody's Baby" is a moving track about a homeless man. "Disconnected" is a head banger about the LA riots.
Pat had updated her sound successfully but unfortunately reeped few rewards aside from critical acclaim. This CD was pleasant surprise from one that you thought had seen better days. Her voice is in fine form and her band rocks and grooves more than ever.
