Great music from the early 80's. A classic. Without any doubt, probably her best release. Talk a trip back in time and enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars One Of Pat Benatar's Best Aug. 21 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Along with IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT and BEST SHOTS, CRIMES OF PASSION is one of Pat Benatar's best albums. There are a lot of great rockers here, including "Hell Is For Children", which holds a special place for me because, when I was in school, I knew a lot of kids from not-so-good homes. On the other hand, several other songs, including "Hit Me With Your Best Shot", would be the perfect soundtrack for the next time your group or school has a field day. Get this and the other aforementioned albums to start your Pat Benatar collection- preferably all at once.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still Have The Height Of Her Danskins Plus Too June 18 2003
Format:Audio CD
I just reconnected with this beauty after a long period of separation (we get led away from our truths seriously in tone with the promise of more or better - then back to this). The riff of "Hit Me With Your Best Shot" and the dim locale of "Hell Is For Children" do not daunt this process of collecting again for glory once had. This album is truly great and was not topped by them either or ever. A solid gold here. Seminal. You need this album - not just a greatest hits revieu. Do it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Spectacular Album! May 30 2003
Format:Audio CD
Although other fans may disagree, I find Crimes Of Passion to be Pat Benatar's masterpiece! This album has a rare consistency - not a bad song on the disc - and the songs flow with a creative progression until reaching a crescendo with her daring cover of Wuthering Heights, followed by a hard rockin' Prisoner Of Love that will leave you breathless! This album is a pure pleasure from start to finish; you cannot go wrong in buying it.

By Freth

This was the first album I ever owned. I went to the store and bought it on vinyl when I was only a yungun. I didn't realize it early on, but I think Pat inspired music tastes that came out later in my late teens. This was a heavy album back in the 80's and sounded it too. I took such good care of that record for the longest time and still remember the first scratch I put on it. I used to sit and stare at the album while I listened. Long story short, Pat is one of the best female rockers of all time. It's clear on this album who's kickin' caboose and takin' names. The sound is clean and crisp and every song rocks. You don't find records like this too often. If you've only heard Pat on the radio, and never bought an album of hers but were thinking about it---this is the one you want.

5.0 out of 5 stars In a word: AMAZING May 16 2002
By Brad
Format:Audio CD
Pat Benatar is, without a doubt, one of the best female voices in rock history. On this, her sophomore effort, she comes out with a true hard rock album for the ages.
If you were listening to the radio in the early '80s, then you likely know four of the first five tracks on the album. "Treat Me Right" gets the album off on the right foot with a catchy rocker that demands your attention. "You Better Run" is a hard rock remake of an old song, and it just kicks. Everyone, pop and rock fans alike, knows "Hit Me With Your Best Shot", the classic single that truly brought Pat into the limelight. "Hell Is For Children" is one of the best rock anthems of all time. Pat's handling of such a sensitive issue as child abuse is stunning in the context of this rocking song.
Rest assured, the radio tracks are not the only good ones. Listen to the searing chorus on a song like "I'm Gonna Follow You"--quite a surprise after the comparatively mellow verse. "Little Paradise" and "Out-A-Touch" also rock. In fact, this whole album does. While Pat's voice has over time proven to be beautifully suited for both hard rockers and gorgeous ballads, the rock is what dominates early in her career on such efforts as this. Truly a masterpiece from an all-time great artist. Neil Geraldo also deserves a great amount of praise for his song writing and guitar contributions this album (not to mention plenty of others).

4.0 out of 5 stars Benatar's Best-Seller Jan. 1 2002
Format:Audio CD
This 4 million selling opus from Benatar was only her 2nd effort after 1979's wonderful In The Heat of The Night. Diverting to a more pop sound than her previous effort, Pat's unshielded voice gave her the recognition she deserved with her first Top 10 single Hit Me With Your Best Shot & other hits such as the brutally ambitious You Better Run, which fact-fans was the 2nd ever video to be aired on MTV. That illustrates the importance of Benatar in the early 80s. The wonderful thing about this album is that there are no fillers & that all tracks sound unique. Standouts are I'm Gonna Follow You which pulses between a sweet verse & cacaphonic chorus which rocks like the best of them. The video however should be avoided:-))) Pat also undertakes a very challenging task - certainly for this listener anyway. An ambitious cover version of British icon Kate Bush's classic Wuthering Heights. Pat's version is her own. A lot sweeter, with less angst than Kate's, you still hear the power & ambition in Benatar's voice. Pat has taken care of this song & only over the last couple of years has started to perform it live. This is a wonderful album - not the best of her career by any stretch, although the most successful - & certainly was made in times before Pat got a decent stylist (aka The Leotard Years). But with a voice like that, Pat's clothes are the last thing you want to look at!!
