It sure seems like people have an axe to grind with these 20th Century Masters "Best Of" collections. The common complaints are usually with the song selection and the album length. No matter what songs appear on a "best of" or "greatest hits" package, there's always going to be a track that gets left off that you think is one of the band's better tracks. As to the album length - while it's true they left room for another 30 minutes worth of material, this compilation is not supposed to be some all encompassing anthology. The 20th Century Masters series serves as an introduction to the artist and their most noteworthy material. Typically that means 10-12 tracks, which obviously won't fill the entire disc.

I think the record company nailed it perfectly with the Night Ranger 20th Century Masters album. They picked the best 2-3 songs off of each of the band's early albums, cleaned up the sound considerably, and presented them in a very affordable package. You get all of the band's radio hits, including the extremely huge power ballad "Sister Christian", digitally remastered, all for about half the cost of the average CD.

The Best of Night Ranger: the 20th Century Masters Millennium Collection is an ideal introduction to the AOR powerhouse that is Night Ranger. It provides a great overview of the band's style, as well as giving existing Night Ranger fans a chance to hear this classic material with greatly improved sound.

NOTE: This compilation is also available in eco-friendly packaging (recycled paper sleeves and trays, liner notes posted online rather than including a CD booklet), for those who prefer a "greener" approach to CD buying.

Night Ranger was and is a great band, and any hits list can not out shine every single, awesome track of their first few albums. These albums are in DESPERATE need of a remaster. I have been waiting for years, and years, for these one of a kind albums to be treated as they should be treated. With the high quality of remastered music in the market today, there is no room for weak, cassette on disc quality sound. Give those albums a worthy remaster, 24 bit would be great,, and they will sell faster than one could ever imagine. I'm tired of waiting.

Don't you just hate it when there's more than one version of a song and you can't find the version you want anywhere? That's what happend with the 2 Night Ranger cd's I got. I had bought a used Greatest hits cd last year, but the version of When you close your eyes, isn't the one I like. That one was more "thined" out, not as full as the version on this 20th Century Masters cd. So I can recommend this one.

You really can't go wrong with any of the songs listed here because to me they rank among Night Ranger's best songs.

The problem that I have with this collection (and also the other greatest hits collection that exists as of 10/29/2014) is that all of the songs are from Night Ranger's first run in the 1980s, and limit out at 11 or 12 tracks. And while you couldn't exactly call anything from the period when the band got together again in the late 1990s and have stayed together into at least 2014 (and hopefully beyond) a radio hit (in the USA, anyway), the music from the 1990s, 2000s, and 2010s is on par with the stuff from the 1980s, and this is now a band worthy of a two or three disc best of collection.

And maybe this doesn't matter in the MP3 age when many people no longer buy CDs or vinyl albums.

Since this is a 'Best of' most of the songs fall into the category of ... you guessed it, hit songs. I am going to assume you're a Night Ranger fan on some level if you're looking to get this particular cluster of songs. I won't go into every song, but I'll highlight the ones I like. First thing first, the remastered sound on these classic songs is superb! And I really like the extremely underrated track, Kelly Keagy sang, "I Did It For Love". They're hugely well-known ballad-ish (but not-quite-a-ballad) rock track, from 1983, "Sister Christian" is predictably, their title opener. While they are most famous for this song, it is not their best (put down the pitch-forks and get off the bandwagon ppl, I don't want to hear it) it just isn't. With that said, who doesn't like "Sister Christian"? And on another note, is Kelly not the best big brother ever? Anyways, moving on ... I came into Night Ranger only knowing their mega hits and their song in slot number two ("Don't Tell Me You Love Me") is just that. This is a classic NR rocking song: a catchy chorus, with great vocals. Enough said. "When You Close Your Eyes" is one of my favorites! I like that they exchange vocals on this one. Jack's got the verse, Kelly on the bridge, and the two of them kicking out the chorus. "Four in the Morning" or as I always refer to it, "I Can't Take Anymore" is another staple in the Night Ranger line-up and deserves its spot on this CD. The song moves along nicely with toe-tapping beats and that classic chorus that you can't help but sing along to. "Goodbye", the ninth song of the eleven, is one of their songs I would put above that all time overplayed "Sister Christian". Night Ranger is so much more than "S C" and "Goodbye" proves that sentiment nicely.Read more ›
