Biography

Hard rock band Cinderella gained success in the mid-'80s, turning out a series of million-selling albums and hit singles while placing music videos in heavy rotation on MTV. By the mid-'90s, the group's mass popularity had subsided due to professional setbacks and perceived changes in taste. But they continued to tour regularly well into the 21st century.

Product Description

Amazon.com

If any album set Cinderella apart from the legions of good-time pop metal bands that cluttered the rock landscape in the late '80s, this one was it. Giving full weight to the blues-inflected hard rock of the Rolling Stones and Aerosmith, they turned out what was probably their finest effort, with catchy songs like "The More Things Change" (the video featured appearances by personalities as diverse as Little Richard and Shelley Duvall) and "Shelter Me." While Tom Keifer's screeching, nails-on-blackboard voice doesn't appeal to all tastes, it doesn't overshadow the quality of the material or the band's overall performance. --Genevieve Williams

Not so long ago, rock bands made albums that contained musical muscle, healthy diversity, good lyrics, creativity, high emotional content, a big dose of asskicking, AND the ability to sell. It should be noted that such albums then got satired, forgotten, and essentially crapped on by the public just a few short years later.
"Heartbreak Station" fulfills the critera to count as such an album. This is the only album I ever bought used, as I never happened to catch Cinderella on the radio or MTV, and I just wanted to make sure I WOULD NOT like them and I wouldn't have to waste my time with their catalog (giving them a chance had much to due with my love for Bon Jovi). I put the cd on and even before the first chorus, I new this band would immediately jump into my "top 20" and I felt embarrassed for not knowing them earlier.
Today, the music industry has gotten so hollow, many albums only have a song or two that are even marketable, let alone musically viable. By sharp contrast, "Heartbreak Station" had (and still has!) the elements that were helping to make rock music taken more seriously as an art form. While maintaining all of the raw and gritty adrenalizing elements of soulful rock and roll, this album contains songs that speak the truth in a most musically motivating manner ("Shelter Me" and "Sick for the Cure"), a nod to funk ("Love's Got Me Doing Time"), a soft, tender title track that even my father of 60 years can verify as aesthetically pleasing, a short and simple nod to what really matters in life ("One for Rock And Roll"), a respectable answer to 'Blaze of Glory' ("Dead Man's Road"), and one of the most emotionally gutwrenching songs ever ("Winds of Change"). Oh, right, and heart-stomping kickass rock and roll ("The More Things Change" and "Make Your Own Way").

Heartbreak Station, Cinderella's third studio album and ultimately their last record to achieve platinum success, is one of the forgotten gems in the 80's hard rock era. Long Cold Winter, for all its virtues, was marred by its pop-metal conventions. Heartbreak Station erases such principles. Filled with Rolling Stones / Aerosmith sensibilities and a fearlessness to deviated from the generic formula of hair metal, this genuinely great album showed that Cinderella had more genuine grit than their poodle-haired contemporaries.

Each track is strong, distinctive and never repeating themselves, a fatal error that plagued many hair metal albums. "Electric Love", "Love Gone Bad" and the sweet, boogie-rock of "Sick for the Cure" are swaggering rock n' roll that recalls the best of Aerosmith, when that band did not need power ballads or a Michael Bay movie to climb to the charts. "One For Rock N' Roll" is a simple, country-fused ditty about lacking worries and just playing rock n' roll. And "Shelter Me" is a riotous commentary on censorship (the accompanying video featuring Little Richard was comedy gold).

But the album's coup de graces remain the two songs that have the making of an instant classic: the title track, with its melodic acoustic guitars, honky piano flourishes and an beguiling 12-string guitar solo, and the opulent "Winds of Change" both have an emotional splendor boosted by Zeppelin bassist John Paul Jones' majestic strings. The title track, in particular, is the true highlight, ranking with Bon Jovi's "I'll Be There for You", Guns N' Roses' "Sweet Child O' Mine" and Skid Row's "I Remember You" as one of the era's greatest power ballads.

This is my favorite Cinderella album, coming in just ahead of Long Cold Winter nad Night Songs, and way ahead of Still Climbing, though that is also a good album.
Back to Heartbreak Station. This album is one of those rare recording you can listen to when it is first released, then find it under the couch eight years later, put it on, and still love it as much as you did the first time the bluesey slide guitar and screeching vocals of frontman Tom Keiffer blasted through your eardrums.
This album is pure musicianship and pure writing talent. I have not seen anything in the last five years that can even try to compare to it, with a very few exceptions. The whole band functions like a well-oiled, hard rockin' machine. Great songs like the four radio singles "The More Things Change", "Love's Got Me Doin' Time", "shelter Me" and "Heartbreak Station", are true masterpieces of American rock. If these songs weren't so great, "Sick For The Cure", "One For Rock N Roll", "Make Your Own Way" and the absolutley amazing "Dead Man's Road" would have been the singles, and in my opinion, would have succeded just as well.
Every song stands on its own. every song brings something different to the table. It would be impossible to pick just one favorite because every track shines in its own special way. I think that is one of the key ingredients to a great, timeless album like this one.
By all means, buy this album. If you don't like it, sell it at a pawn shop. Give someone else the chance to experience this magical recording
