Cinderella epitomizes how 80’s metal’s uniqueness from one band to the next. They paved their own way with awesome music. Sure, they wore the typical big hair and make-up, but these guys meant business. Their second album was more bluesy and softer than I expected, and to be honest I was disappointed in the direction they went after this first album. But hey, I was in high school and I didn’t quite want them to go other directions just yet. Especially after such a kick arse album as this. It has to be one of my all-time favorite metal albums. It’s right up there with Dokken’s Under Lock and Key et al. If you love 80’s metal, you’ll find this refreshingly hard and nasty. I also recommend a little-known metal band called WWIII (self-titled, one album). If you can find them.
