  • Take the bluesy swagger of Aerosmith and the Rolling Stones, add a guitar sound similar to AC/DC’s, throw in the sleaze metal of Motley Crue and pour it into a bag, shake it up and you get bluesy hair metal band Cinderella. The recipe works. Some highlights on this wonderful “best of” collection include:”Shake Me” – This song is very AC/DC-ish in style, nothing complicated on the guitar here, just a good, hard rocker. “Nobody’s Fool” – “Nobody’s Fool” really shows Cinderella’s range as musicians. This is an excellent Def Leppard-like ballad. “Gypsy Road” – This is a swaggering rocker, sounding maybe a bit like Aerosmith and Motley Crue at times. Great song, maybe Cinderella’s best. “Coming Home” – Cinderella at their best. This is an excellent ballad played with an acoustic guitar and may be my favorite Cinderella song. Very emotional and very moving.This is one of the better compilation albums I’ve heard and, unlike many so-called “best of” albums, Once Upon A… is pretty much complete. Every song that should be on it is on it. So, if you are a casual Cinderella fan (like me), Once Upon A… is probably what you are looking for.
