Fast delivery, but more importantly, the music is very good. A bit more bluesy than their previous releases. If you're looking for the "hair metal" sound, you might be disappointed, but if you enjoy solid rock-n-roll with blues and country influences, you will enjoy this album. As a teenager, I didn't fully appreciate the Cinderella sound, but as an adult, I have grown to really love this band. They were much different than their peers, even if they had several songs that walked the walk of the 80's era. Great band, not my favorite album, but a strong effort.

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.

It may have not been their most commercially successful album but Heartbreak Station showcased a more ambitious, talented band whom many have taken for granted. Unfortunately, that's what happened when grunge came by and swept everyone associated with hair metal. It was a dark day for 80's hard rock and for Cinderella, as their careers went into a startling decline while bands like Helmet, L7 and Pearl Jam achieved gold status.

You know, what's funny? Back in the 1990's, everyone would have crucified a band for playing music like this but today, everyone wishes we could have an album like this again. It is the testament to Cinderella and especially Tom Kiefer that they created an album that was unfairly neglected and reaped for rediscovery. Even if you're not an 80's hard rock fan, you should pick this album up and give it a try. It is not only a great 80's rock record; it's a great rock album in general.

I graduated high school in 1980 and absolutely loved the hair band era. My daughter was young and listened to the music I liked. Now, she loves the hair bands and her two young sons are listening to them and love it.
