Night Ranger - Growin' Up In California

Biography

Night Ranger truly epitomizes the sound of the 80’s while at the same time transcending it. Since their reunion in 1996, they have brought their guitar-crunching, melodic brand of Hard Rock into the 21st century with unparalleled talent, energy and creativity.

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Night Ranger's career was certainly buttressed by MTV, which made the San Francisco Bay Area group a video staple in the early '80s. "Don't Tell Me You Love Me" stands as a fine piece of '80s hair metal, with bassist Jack Blades chunk-a-chunking his pickups to create that rock-locomotive sound. The band slows things down with "Sister Christian," a not-so-powerful power ballad that gave Night Ranger another significant single. Packaging a select portion of their catalog under the Greatest Hits banner is a bit of a stretch, though. Blades didn't even stick around for long, breaking away to join former Styx guitarist Tommy Shaw and Ted Nugent in Damn Yankees. For true devotees of '80s metal, Night Ranger's Greatest Hits is a must-have; for everyone else, enjoyment will last as long as a Night Ranger video. --Steve Gdula

This is one of the greatest rock and roll bands I have ever heard. They are the most unpretentious, straight ahead and yet very talented group of rock musicians I have ever seen or heard in my 20-plus years of listening to rock music. Their melodic sound is equally awesome on such killer rockers as "Don't Tell Me You Love Me" and "(You Can Still) Rock In America" as it is on such ballads as the famous "Sister Christian" and the equally-as-good "Sentimental Street" and "Goodbye". I could rave about each and every song on this disk. If you are a fan of Night Ranger and '80s melodic rock, you know exactly what I mean. But what about the song selection?
That too is just about perfect. Every top 40 song is here. Every rock radio track is here. A couple of extra Night Ranger staples are thrown in. Every album to this point in their career is represented, even the latter two which didn't spawn the big hits their three amazing predecessors did.
For me, this collection still isn't enough. Each and every album represented on this collection has awesome tunes that aren't included here. But for "radio fans" of the band, this collection is about perfect. It truly is a great summary of one of the best bands I have ever listened to.

Of the hard rock bands of the 80s, Night Ranger did an awesome job without actually being classified as metal. Some of their songs were tinged with the synths that typified 80's music, and along with contemporaries like Loverboy, their biggest hits were power ballads. Yet they did have quite a hard-edge without them going into metal. Case in point was "(You Can Still) Rock In America," their hardest rocking hit with a pulsing and snarling guitar a la Riggs that could've been on the Heavy Metal soundtrack, yet only made it to #51 in 1984. Barely scraping the Top 40 is another hard-edged number, "Don't Tell Me You Love Me" from Dawn Patrol, as is "Eddie's Comin' Out Tonight" from the same album.

"Sing Me Away" from Dawn Patrol (1982) alternated between hard rock guitar in the verses and a chorus tempered by synths. A pleasant enough number that somehow stalled at #54. However, their biggest hit was the power ballad "Sister Christian" of a teenage girl growing up and feeling the pangs of adolescence, from their second album Midnight Madness, which starts out with a gentle piano before the drums transition into the power guitars. This was their second Top 40 hit and only Top 5. "When You Close Your Eyes," also from MM, was more upbeat rock, though with a more poppified rock beat, kind of like Rick Springfield. This reached #14. The rocker "Rumours In The Air," also from MM, is a Loverboy-type number.

However, they had more power ballads, particularly on 7 Wishes, their second biggest album. It stood to reason, considering the success of "Sister Christian." I saw videos from 7 Wishes during my MTV years, so this is where I came in. "Sentimental Street," with its majestic synths opening and steady mid-paced beat, was their second biggest hit, charting at #8.

This CD is a guilty pleasure, but what a pleasure! The one word that sums up this greatest hits compilation is "fun." If you were a fan of Night Ranger during its heyday, this CD will put a smile on your face. This may not be the greatest rock ever created, but it's energetic, well-done and...fun. Sure, it's a little cheesy in places ("Secret of My Success", for instance), but that just bumps up the fun meter another notch. If you grew up in the midwest, you will likely enjoy it even more, because you heard half these songs on the radio all the time in the 80s.
The secret of your success in selecting music is buying this disc!

Night Ranger seemed to me to be one of those bands that just kept missing the brass ring. Musically, they had the chops--bear in mind that guitarist Brad Gillis played with Ozzy Osbourne before Night Ranger, and Ozzy has pretty good taste in guitarists--but their songs were just a little too generic. However, they did excel at ballads, long before the Warrants and the Firehouses of the world did. "Sister Christian" is perhaps the best known, but "Sentimental Street" and particularly the beautifully arranged "Goodbye" are a cut above the norm, and drummer Kelly Keagy's rough-edged vocals complement them perfectly. Overall, a decent package of a band that never could decide if they wanted to be rock or pop, and sometimes tried to hard to be both.

Here is the question: What exactly IS Night Ranger? Are they Glam-Rockers? Heavy Metal? Pop/Rock? No matter what YOU think they are, just remember to put the word, 'successful' in front of whatever definition you give them, because selling millions of albums MEANS something in the recording business. The debate will rage for a long time about Night Ranger being 'too pop' but I think if you judged these guys based upon musical talent and the sheer likability of their tunes ALONE, folks would forget entirely the silly debate and enjoy what these guys did best.
Who could hear 'You Can Still Rock In America' or 'Sing Me Away' and doubt their talent as rock & rollers? Or take a listen to 'Sister Christian' (I am STILL curious as to what Motorin' means from the lyrics...) or 'Sentimental Street' and assume that power ballad's were beyond their ability...no Night Ranger went beyond the typical definition of what bands usually were in the 80's. These are of course the big radio songs that made Night Ranger popular, however several other stand-out songs propel this greatest hits package to above-average status...like: 'Rumour's In The Air' (one of my personal fav's) and although the movie was huge, the title track from 'The Secret of My Success' never made it nearly as big, but should have. These guys are also great performers on stage. If you ever saw one of their concerts, you'd know what I mean.
I must confess that I was one of the naysayers about this group until my boss at the radio station assigned me to attend the Night Ranger Concert and officiate all of our backstage pass winners instead of going to the Van Halen concert that I REALLY wanted to go to...well I was rather upset and feeling bitter against my boss AND the band...
