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.

Editorial Reviews

From the very first track ("Bad Seamstress Blues"), it was obvious that Cinderella was moving in a different direction with this album, toward a mix of the pop metal that was their forte with a bluesy inflection reminiscent of Aerosmith. Songs like "Fallin' Apart at the Seams" and "Gypsy Road" showed this influence clearly while making the album more musically interesting than its contemporaries, although the anthemic "The Last Mile" and the hit single "Don't Know What You Got (Till It's Gone)" were definite highlights. Added to the mix were ballads like the title track, as well as less grandiose tunes such as "Coming Home." Not exactly a classic album, but a likeable listen overall. --Genevieve Williams

5.0 out of 5 stars Forgotten Classic December 13, 2001
By tin2x
Format:Audio CD
Cinderella's debut featured bluesy rock which was reminiscent of AC/DC. On their follow up they up the rootsiness factor while still rocking in late 80's fashion. The result is a winning album that is an overlooked classic of 80's hard rock.
The album starts off with some harmonica and a national steel guitar while Tom Keifer sings a blues as an intro to "Fallin' Apart At The Seams". It works wonderfully. It's worked so that the key riff of the hard rocker is alluded to and then played on intentionally "historic" sounding guitar. "Gypsy Road" follows which is another riff rocker with a riff Keith Richards probably wishes he wrote. Following that is the excellent "Don't Know What You Got Till It's Gone" which is a fantastic power ballad. Probably the best thing about it though, not to detract from the song, is Tom Keifer's excellent solo. Another standout rocker in "The Last Mile" follows. Other standout tracks include "Long Cold Winter" which is in the vein of Led Zeppelin's "Since I've Been Loving You" with some stirring guitar and "Coming Home" which is a great country rock ballad. "If You Don't Like It" is the kiss-off/screw you song that every good rock album needs and works on that level. "Second Wind" and "Fire And Ice" recall the band's debut "Night Songs" with the latter being the superior track. "Take Me Back" rounds out the album with some kickng drums with cowbell and a great slide riff, and a rootsy upbeatness.
The thing about this and Cinderella's next album ("Heartbreak Station") is that they started showing a way out of being pigeon holed in the "hard rock" scene.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Know What You Got.....Till' You Own It July 20, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Yes you can call me crazy but please keep reading. This is the greatest album of the pop music era. This cannot be called an album the damn thing is an oratorio the best collection of art since Handel's immortal "The Messiah". How Keifer got away with this religous message on a major label is beyond me. This album puts accross so much heart and soul it would make Otis Redding smile and cry. I would love to see what Keifer went through to write these songs and what the release looked like when he put them on paper. The album must be listened to from first song to last and you should probably sit down and read the lyrics as the record plays as it will tell you a story of life, love, heartache,strength,hope, and acceptance. Please forget about image when you listen even though theirs was over the top it did not effect the music like it may have with some other bands of this genre. When it comes to hairbands no one could play the blues like these guys.
Bad Seamstress Blues/Fallin' Apart At The Seams- Great mood swings starts out with a Robert Johnson influence and winds up hard rock.
Gypsy Road-A rock anthem, should be a classic
Don't Know What You Got(Till It's Gone)-The slow song, the hit, but aside from that it tells an honest soulful story
The Last Mile-cool riff, great lyrics,good vocal arrangements.
Second Wind-Makes a simple but nessacary statement to the albums story
Long Cold Winter-A 12 bar blues in a minor key played with metal distortion.My favorite song on the record. It is my opinion that this is currently the highest evolution of the blues as the current artists rehash the same old thing. Includes the most soulful singing and guitar playing you can hear.

5.0 out of 5 stars Long Cold Winter, a warm rocking sophomore effort June 21, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Cinderella followed its debut Night Songs with Long Cold Winter, which featured some improved instrumentation, distinct songs instead of the same sound throughout, and a more blues-based song infused with their usual metal. The opening "Falling Apart/Bad Seamstress Blues," has some classic acoustic blues before launching into metal blues in the second part, including some superior electric blues guitar. As in their first album, they put forth a sound that should've put Warrant, Firehouse, and Winger on alert to what metal should've been.

The heavy rocking "Gypsy Road" is this album's "Shake Me." Strangely enough, the video for this song was released before "Don't Know What You Got (Till It's Gone)," as that song charted first. As it turns out, this was released as a single after the success of the first three singles. It peaked at #51, and I put this to the order when it was released. Why not release it as the first single as it was in the UK?

Probably because of the success of pop-metal bands doing ballads; Cinderella's first single (and second video) "Don't Know What You Got (Till It's Gone)" bettered its previous ballad, "Nobody's Fool," by one place, peaking at #12. It starts as a piano ballad before going full force with the guitars and synths to give it a soaring effect, of some hope left to mend what was sundered.

The next single was "The Last Mile," which falls into the metal blues category. This hard-driving song reached #36, which would've signaled them to hold off on singles, but they came out with yet another one, the mid-paced "Coming Home" which made it to #20. Some country inflections on the mellower parts give evidence that they just didn't go for straight ahead metal. A definite asset to this album.
