"Wait For Night" has always been one of my favorite records & I literally wore out several copies! Although CD is not my favorite of music mediums, I have been waiting for years for this to be released on CD - This is a copy I will not be able to wear out!
Musically, this is kind of like a cross between his early albums like "Comic Book Heroes" & his later, early eighties stuff. The album is much more piano-based than most of his other work, with Springfield playing the majority of the pianos & all of the guitars. All of the instruments (especially the guitars & drums)sound amazing & the performances are top-notch. Rick delivers some of his best guitar solos on tunes like "Take A Hand" & "One Broken Heart".
There are quite a few mellow songs on the album ("Where's All The Love", "Million Dollar Face", "Treat Me Gently In The Morning") but all are amazing. The best moments are found in the more upbeat tunes: "Goldfever", "Jessica" & "Old Gangsters Never Die" are the 'heaviest' tunes on the record. All have great lyrics, interesting rhythms, & excellent musical interplay between the pianos & guitars. Personally, my favorites are the 'midle-of-the-road' tunes, "One Broken Heart" & "Archangel". Both are very melodic songs with great hooks, awesome vocal harmonies & some of Rick's best vocal performances.
I would recommend this to anyone who is a fan of music. It is excellent from start to finish. And if you are a Rick Springfield fan & have not heard this album - Get it. Right now.

I really like the whole album, but I bought the CD for "Celebrate Life." It is absolutely the best song I have ever heard him sing. I wish he would sing it in concert. Read morePublished on December 22, 2012 by A Haddock
