5.0 out of 5 stars One of My Personal Favorites for 30 years now July 8 2010
By Kasey G TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
I can remember seeing this album all over stores in early 1980 and I knew it was quickly becoming a best-seller. I didn't pay it much attention until "We Live For Love/Rated X" debuted on the local Top 40 in April as a double-sided hit. It eventually reached #9 in June, and spent 16 weeks on the chart. It ranked as #51 on the Top 100 of 1980.

In July 1980, my 11-year-old self was the proud owner of what I perceived as quite a mature purchase for someone my age. From the first listen, I was amazed at how consistent this album was; not a bad track in the bunch. One side was as good as the other, and several tracks were even better than the hit singles.

A pounding drum beat and smoking guitar licks open the album with "Heartbreaker", one of the most arresting songs ever to start an LP.

Pat's vocals alternate from raspy to positively angelic thoughout. The guitar in the middle builds to a dramatic spine-tingling climax, and finally a "rush-to-the finish" ending. **** stars

Things slow down a notch for the John Cougar-cover "I Need a Lover". I think she sings it just as well as the original. *** stars

"If You Think You Know How to Love Me" has a gritty feel and shotgun-like drumming throughout. By the time keyboards underscore Pat's vocals on the chorus near the end, it's soaring. **** stars

The slinky, slightly spooky title track has a mesmerizing bassline and Pat sounds more laid-back, until she gets to the amazing gospel-like zenith near the end. This song also practically soars before it's bassline fades out just exactly as it opened. **** stars

A quiet piano deceivingly opens "My Clone Sleeps Alone". However, this is no pretty ballad. It's one of the most powerful numbers on the album.

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT DEBUT.... March 13 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I remember when Pat came out in '79 when I was 10 and thinking, Gee, she is really great!!! And you think as the years go by and I got older that I would outgrow her... NOPE!!!! Still a follower of her music even in 2002... Now I must agree with some who say this is her best album of her first 4 (ie... CRIMES OF PASSION, PRECIOUS TIME AND GET NERVOUS) with PRECIOUS TIME a close follow up... All are good in their own way BUT there is not really one song I GET TIRED of hearing... okay... well maybe I NEED A LOVER which is right up there with HIT ME WITH YOUR BEST SHOT (earplugs, please!!!) She goes from sounding like a heavy metal mama on NO YOU DON'T to Julie Andrews on DON'T LET IT SHOW... Her voice is truly amazing and has really stood the test of time over 20 years... She is so versatile in her vocal ability... I had ALL her albums at one time on cassette but as I go to add to my CD COLLECTION I choose the ones that mean the most to me and truly this one is her finest of the 4... IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT is so cool and smooth as she breaks in the middle with some opera... TRUST ME she changes her vocals quite a bit in this record and it is all good... I AGREE THAT CRIMES OF PASSION AND PRECIOUS TIME ARE EQUALLY GOOD but this one has more appeal before she conformed to that mold of only hard rock tunes or in your face songs... there is nary a ballad on any of her records if you take a close look so IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT displayed her softer side as well.... Sure on CRIMES she covered WUTHERING HEIGHTS also excellent but as time passed those slow tunes were few and far between until WE BELONG IN 1984.... Every one has their own opinion... I RESPECT THAT ... but in my opinion this is the best of the 4 before she had to conform to a mold of hard rock in your face songs... I LOVE HER THOUGH.... Keep em coming PAT!!!!
