I basically bought this album for one song, Total Eclipse of the Heart. It is one of the greatest and most memorable songs of the early 1980s, and it has that certain something about it that makes it as moving now as it was way back in 1983. The lyrics about reassessing your life as you age are now, sadly, much more meaningful to me, and only make the song even more amazing. The rest of the songs on this album are somewhat hit and miss. Bonnie Tyler's unique voice is best suited to plaintive ballads of emotional pain and heartache, and for this reason the tracks Tears and Take Me Back are really quite good. The uptempo tracks which seem to have no meaning whatsoever come off pretty badly, though, in my opinion. Let's face it; Bonnie Tyler does not have a melodious voice; she sounds like she has a perpetual frog in her throat, and this unique sound really is not suited for frivolous pop songs. Getting So Excited is anything but exciting and serves in my mind as a musical purgatory one most endure before reaching the higher plane of Total Eclipse of the Heart. Goin' Through the Motions is not only the name of a lackluster song, it is an apt description of Tyler's performance on tracks such as Faster Than the Speed of Night and It's a Jungle Out There. Her cover versions of Have You Ever Seen the Rain? And Straight From the Heart are not bad, but they don't really hold a candle to the original songs. Thus, I would name only three of these nine songs as quality tracks that really have something to give to today's listeners. For most people, I think the decision to buy will come down to a question as to how much you want to own a copy of the incredible song Total Eclipse of the Heart.

I am a huge BT fan, and I have had the opportunity to meet her twice, which was quite a delight! That voice!!! It is shown off very well on this great album of the 80s, and it does not sound old! As a matter of fact, TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE HEART has been re-released as a duet in Europe, where it has cracked the European top 5, and has held strong atop the charts for 7 weeks in Blegium and 10 weeks in France!!! This has also launched a new album available on the site entitled SIMPLY BELIEVE. Now on to this album!
It is heavy, and the background vocals are simply superb. I agree with most other reviewers; GETTING SO EXCITED has always been my least favorite song on the entire album. Oddly enough, the album title brings out the bombastic Wagnerio-Steinmanesque tone superbly, but I never really LOVED the song as such. Track #1 is absolutely superb, and charged with her powerful voice. Of course, the uncontournable TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE HEART is the must-hear in its extended version of 6:49!!! Ravishing! GETTING THROUGH THE MOTIONS is cute, and not to be taken seriously, while IT'S A JUNGLE OUT THERE is quite pop. I always like that arrangement. TEARS is a raunching duet by Bonnie and Sctosman extraordinaire Frankie Miller, with whom she collaborated on two subsequent albums. TAKE ME BACK is very powerful as well, while STRAIGHT FROM THE HEART, the Bryan Adams cover is just plain great. Again, that voice alone makes you shiver! A must-have from a great woman, even if you don't like all the songs. For everyone else who is not most familiar with her work, try NOTES FROM AMERICA, my all-time favorite Bonnie Tyler release ever!

Bonnie Tyler's first very popular album was defintely this album, "Faster Than the Speed of Night", maybe because of the hit "Total Eclipse of the Heart" which is maybe the most beautiful ballad a woman has ever sung. The album version of the song is a little bit longer. The begginning of the song is longer and there's good parts. I've always hoped that the song could have been longer and now here's it!!! This is quite sad lyrically but still musically very happy song. The male vocals of the song are very good, so are they in the track "Tears", which is a good ballad too. There's more ballads in the end: "Straight from the Heart" and "Take Me Back". They all are very touching songs!!!
"Have You Ever Seen the Rain?" is a good opener. Not so fast, almost a ballad. Bonnie has good voice, like always...
There's also fast song: "Faster Than the Speed of Night" has a good rhythm, "It's a Jungle Out There" has very good vocals!!! It makes me very happy!!! Also "Going Through the Motions" is a happy song. There's also children singing in the beginning and in the end of the song.
"Getting So Excited" is maybe a very sad/happy song. It tells about a lady who sees a boy and a girl fell in love while she's getting bored... This is quite easy song to listen but quite difficult if you want to really love it!!! I like it very much! It's different from the others.
This must be one of the best Bonnie Tyler albums ever! The Great One!!!!
