Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The adage goes that a band has its entire career to create its first album, and the Wilson sisters, Ann and Nancy, never seemed able to top Dreamboat Annie, certainly one of rock's all-time strongest debut LPs. In fact, by the time they recorded this eponymous effort after switching labels, the industry had pretty much written them off as has-beens. Strangely, the 1985 release became one of the biggest hits of their career, scoring five hit songs. Of course, this was also where the band succumbed to outside tunesmiths and synthesizer-heavy MOR power ballads. Producer Ron Nevision even has Ann at times trying to emulate Madonna. Not a new direction but, frankly, a new band. --Bill Holdship

5.0 out of 5 stars 19th Century Romanticism Makes A Comeback January 28, 2002
Format:Audio CD
What The Cure was to new wave/punk, Heart was to rock n' roll. These songs overflowed with all the passion, excitement, romance and love that typical meat and potatoes, male rockstars of the era, felt too embarrassed to express. On this album, Heart is easy listening, hard rock, and progressive new wave pop, all at the same time. There's an excellent balance of guitar and synth with thrillingly uplifting moments and heart-melting ballads. The Wilson sister's vocals are lush throughout, but what really stands out are the songs themselves.
"If Looks Could Kill", is a solid dramatic rocker. "What About Love", is a dynamic ballad that features Grace Slick on backround vocals. Howard Leese lays a fine guitar solo. The last half minute pulsates double time with unbelievable excitement and conviction. You'll continue to hear the song in your head even after you turn off your stereo. "Never", is sexy and serious at the same time.
Written by Bernie Taupin, "These Dreams", has to be among the very best ballads of the 80's. This is Heart at its most romantic and seductive. It's medieval lyrical imagery gives it a timeless appeal. The song emblazons a gorgeous fantasy world upon your emotions. It's a better four minutes than any drug could ever give you.
"The Wolf", uses primal imagry to put down the unwanted advances of sleazy guys. It's guitar solo will floor you with a determined and indomitable hopefullness! "All Eyes", scores again with an alternately sexy seductiveness and lovestruck passion. "You don't have to say a word to get a hold of me/take me...shake me/Burning gravity baby/Look at me, look at me". What guy wouldn't love to hear those words from his girlfriend? And there's another triumphant guitar solo that's brimming with happiness.

4.0 out of 5 stars Extreme Makeover August 22, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Some Heart fans like to pretend that 1985's self-titled Heart album never happened, but the band's makeover as a keyboard-heavy AOR act gave their career a much needed shot in the arm, as well as some much deserved attention. Between the hitmakers brought in to contribute on songwriting to the shiny 80's production job, the band's self-titled album was as good an AOR album as you could hope for, and featured some of the band's biggest hits.

Sure, the band "sold out" and the material on Heart is much more radio friendly than their early material, but we're not exactly talking Starship's "We Built This City" here. The tracks on Heart are well-crafted pop songs that are written to take full advantage of the Wilson sisters' considerable talents. I was blown away by the glorious, dramatic "What About Love" and "These Dreams," and the infectious "Never" and "Nothin' At All" two decades ago (God, has it really been that long?) and am just as impressed today.

I can see how old-school Heart fans could have a problem with this album, but this is the Heart I grew up with, so I'll always consider it a classic album.

3.0 out of 5 stars Survival September 6, 2008
By Lola
Format:Audio CD
While this album certainly isn't the same music Heart was known for in the 70s, it brought them back into the music spotlight and brought new fans. Some people who like to act self important wanna call this type of change "selling out", but look at all the other bands of the past who refused to change - most of them are nowhere and forgotten. Very few bands of that era have a sound that maintains through time. Put "bands of the 70s" in your search browser and see what comes up. There's maybe 5 bands on that list that continued to produce music successfully thru the 80s and 90s. And Heart is one of them. When it comes to entertainment, if you wanna survive, you gotta give the fans what they want. And that's what Heart did on this disc and a few more after this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Heart's commercial comeback that screams 80's! June 12, 2011
Format:Audio CD
In 1985, the veteran 70's hard rock band Heart released their first album on Capital Records. Titled simply Heart, the album represented a new direction for the band fronted by sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson. In the late 70's, Heart had found a very successful commercial niche with their blend of Led Zepplin influenced hard rock combined with some folk influenced acoustic ballads. But the early 80's proved to be a rough time for the band, as their style of music fell out of commercial favor and the group was rocked with line up changes that saw them first reduced from 6 members to 5 members with the departure of original lead guitarist Roger Fisher, then the replacement of the bands rhythm section. By 1984, their previous label had released the band from its contract.

Fortunately they were picked up by Capital. But the band, its management and its label all knew that if they were to get back in the game, they would have to make changes. Heart abandoned their Led Zep meets Joni Mitchell sound in which the Wilson sisters took charge of writing most of the material. Instead, the band produced more radio friendly pop rock material, with many of the songs written or co-written by professional songsmiths such as Billy Steinberg/Tom Kelly, Bernie Taupin and Diane Warren. In addition, to promote the new material, the band glammed up their appearance for music videos and the directors made prominent use of the Wilson Sister's cleavage, especially Nancy Wilson's, as lead singer Ann battled with her weight during this era. These changes would prove controversial with many of the band's original fanbase and this created a split that exists to this day, with some fans only preferring the 70's material, while others like all their material.
