  • As an attempt to get recognition as a serious and mature musical entity, Cinderella shifts direction on this recording trying to make a big departure from the cheap corporate tones, artificiality and over exploited gimmick that made hair metal so hateful on its final stages in the late 80’s and early 90’s.On Heartbreak Station, the band brings to its sound deep influences from traditional North American musical styles such as blues, country, folk and gospel as well as the British Invasion tones of the Rolling Stones and The Faces, all this in order to validate its roots as authentic rock musicians. This blend of influences creates an atmosphere of honesty, celebration, introspection and musical craft and poise. The novelty, however, its not only on the sonic department; lyrics have been traded for a reflexive and intelligent ironic mood, instead of the hedonistic and party celebratory vibe of the past.It’s been almost 13 years since the first time I listened to Heartbreak Station and still makes me wonder, what would’ve happened if Tom Keifer and the boys had reached the recognition and success that this risky and honest album deserved?.Highlights: “Shelter Me”, Sick For the Cure” and “One For Rock ‘n’ Roll” a dylanesque, evocative and beautiful song.
