Your record company (and you too) are disappointed with your last album's sales. Your mother dies of cancer. You're a singer and have throat surgery. This is just the most basic summary of what the situation was like for Cinderella's singer, songwriter, and lead guitar player Tom Keifer as the band tried to put this album together. They were some of the factors at work.
What comes out of this is an album with a decidedly dark and agressive aspect. Mercury tried to hype it as a return to the old Cinderella "attitude". Clearly they pushed for a record closer to "Night Songs" and "Long Cold Winter" feeling it would be more commercially viable. What they got though was a record that is almost sinister at times. This vibe is achieved largely through the first three songs. "Bad Attitude Shuffle" is just a great kiss off song, and uses the f-bomb for the first time on a Cinderella record. "Take Is Cheap" and "All Comes Down" follow in a moody, (...angry) vein. What follows is "Hard To Find The Words" which is Tom's song for his recently departed mother. "Blood From A Stone" is another song which talks about futility and being in tough times and is another raised middle finger to the world. This is not late 80's party music. It's hard rock but it's dark without quite being metal. The sound is different too. There is quite literally a wall of guitars on each track. The pianos and horns are still there but it seems as if Cinderella were told to up the guitar quotient. It's as if Phil Spector had produced in a way. There are weaving lead guitars throughout most of the album which also contribute to a feeling of oppresiveness and confusion. The angst Tom Keifer must be feeling is almost there for you to touch.
That is not to say though that the entire album is dark.

At the time Cinderella released Still Climbing, grunge music was still riding high as bands like Alice in Chains, Stone Temple Pilots, and Soundgarden were topping the Billboard album charts. Hard rock or "hair metal" was dismissed as nearly every band of the genre except for its superstars (ex...Bon Jovi, Def Leppard) became extinct in the eyes of the general public. Which brings us to Cinderella, a band coming off 3 platinum albums, several Top 40 hits, and a sound more suited to traditional rockers Aerosmith and the Rolling Stones than hair metal bands Poison and White Lion. Sadly, they met the same fate as those latter bands despite their strong catalog of music.

Although it sold very little and barely made the charts, Still Climbing is a very strong release and their most consistent album since their debut album Night Songs. After the riff-rock of their debut, the band expanded their sound with each release and they reached their apex here. While many '80s hard rock bands would add horns and keyboards to spice up their sound, none of them did it as well as Cinderella as evidenced by the R&B horns on the killer tracks "All Comes Down" and "Talk Is Cheap" and the piano on the stellar title song. "Hard To Find The Words" is arguably their best ballad and in another time would have been a huge hit along the lines of "Don't Know What You Got (Til It's Gone)." The hard rockers "Blood From A Stone" and "Easy Come Easy Go" are great hard rock songs played with conviction even if they don't possess the catchy hooks of earlier hits "Gypsy Road" and "Shake Me." The killer opener "Bad Attitude Shuffle" and "Free Wheelin" rock even harder and are much stronger than the heaviest songs on their previous albums such as "Fire And Ice" and "Love Gone Bad.

Cinderella is one of those groups that I found myself discovering only recently. Their first two efforts included the 'Night Songs' (the band's rockin' debut) and the
excellent 'Long Cold Winter'. These two albums are very enjoyable and everyone had high expectations for their next record. Unfortunately, in 1990 when the band released their third album, 'Heartbreak Station', it failed to meet most fans' expections including mine. There are a few very good songs on the cd and that is the problem because there are not enough of them. Also the music on this record is so blunt and in-your-face flat-out blues it becomes unbearable at times for me to stand listening to. I was expecting a rock and roll cd not a blues record. Lyric-wise, though, the songs have matured considerably. Also keep in mind that this album is not terrible; but it just is not nearly as much a pleasure to listen to as their previous albums.
'Still Climbing', which hit shelves (but not very hard, i.e. grunge) four years after 'Hearbreak Station', more than makes up for the previous let-down. This is a very solid, hard-rocking album. "Freewheelin'" completely threw me off--I did not expect to hear Cinderella rock that hard. This one should have been played all over the radios but it WAS 1994 wasn't it? "Through the Rain" is an excellent ballad along the lines of "Coming Home" and "Don't Know What You've Got (Til It's Gone)"--it's that good. My other favorite tracks are "the Road's Still Long", "Bad Attitude Shuffle", "Still Climbing" and "Blood From a Stone". "Hot & Bothered" is a very good bonus song that was originally featured on the Wayne's World soundtrack but it does not belong on this album.
