Need this to complete my Night Ranger collection. Some may not consider one of their best, but I had the cassette way back when and loved it at the time. Nice to be able to get a CD of it. I collect music and was missing this one. Great CD one of the lost ones I did not have. Solid 4 out of 5 The screaming dual guitars are back. The keyboards are all but gone.
Still more filler than the first 3 NR releases but some great rockin' tunes on their final release. Wish Fitz had lasted for this one. See all reviews from the United States. Top international reviews. Translate all reviews to English. Absolutely brilliant one of my favourite Albums, I first heard it on cassette so I had to get the CD. Thank you for your feedback. Sorry, we failed to record your vote. Please try again. Great album, great service. Un disco che senz'altro non piacerebbe agli amanti dei primi dischi della band, a causa del suono perfezionato e molto elettronico.
La produzione commerciale di Keith Olsen si sente tutta, ma i night ranger sono troppo bravi e le canzoni di quest'album sono tutte bellissime. Night Ranger is an American rock band from San Francisco formed in that gained popularity during the s with a series of albums and singles. The quintet is best known for the power ballad " Sister Christian ", which peaked at No. After their success waned in the late s, the band split up in and its members pursued other musical endeavors, including group and solo efforts.
After Rubicon's demise in , bassist Jack Blades formed a hard rock trio  with two other Rubicon members, drummer Kelly Keagy and guitarist Brad Gillis. Performing under the name Stereo, the threesome added keyboardist Alan Fitzgerald , a former member of Montrose , in Fitzgerald soon recommended enlisting a second virtuoso guitarist, so Jeff Watson , who led his own band in Northern California , was added to the group. As Stereo, the band played small clubs in San Francisco in , such as the Palms in the Tenderloin.
In , the band changed its name to Night Ranger after a country band, the Rangers, claimed a trademark infringement. By this point, they had recorded Dawn Patrol for Boardwalk Records and done opening stints for ZZ Top and Ozzy Osbourne ; the latter had employed Brad Gillis as a replacement guitarist for the recently deceased Randy Rhoads , in the spring and summer of Rolling Stone 's review of 7 Wishes took a swipe at Night Ranger's "formula" of "sub-Broadway" ballads.
Other critics were even less flattering, with terms such as "poseurs" and "pomp-rockers" put forth in various music guides. But favourable critics, such as Hit Parader , underscored Jack Blades' puppy-dog appeal, which won over female fans, while Gillis and Watson's duelling guitars pleased the same male audience that guitar-driven bands such as Van Halen had already begun to cultivate.
Both guitarists also featured prominently in magazines like " Guitar for the Practicing Musician. Night Ranger's popularity solidified with their second album, Midnight Madness , which pushed the band from opening act to headliner status by the summer of But Gillis said the band chose not to release it on Dawn Patrol because they were afraid of losing their hard rock credibility.
In , Night Ranger continued headlining their own tours in support of 7 Wishes , which followed a very loose concept of the band flying across the ocean in a WWII B Mitchell bomber.
Night Ranger's "Sentimental Street" video even placed them in an Amelia Earhart scenario, with the entire band lost at sea. Like Midnight Madness , 7 Wishes garnered three hit singles: "Sentimental Street" 8; sung by Kelly Keagy ; Blades' mid-tempo rocker "Four in the Morning I Can't Take Anymore " 19 , the title describing the time of night Blades wrote the song;  and the pleasant, acoustic-flavoured "Goodbye" 17 , which saw the band veering in an overtly folk-rock, even country, direction.
According to a TNN interview, Blades wrote "Goodbye" in memory of his older brother, James, who had died from a heroin overdose several years before. They never returned to their old form after this one, no matter how "special" Feeding off the mojo was. Jez May 19, An excellent set of songs and definately a slightly tougher sound all round. KVK May 18, Longtime keyboard handler Alan 'Fitz' Gerald was out the door, so the album was a lot more guitar-oriented than its predecessors.
For the ones who followed Night Ranger from "Dawn Patrol" on, the feelings were at least very mixed. Many think of this album as Night Ranger's best, or at least one of the best, as the songwriting is stellar and the emphasis is on the voices and the fabulous guitar No reviews for this album yet.
