Cinderella is often and unfortunately written off as being a horrible 80s' hair band. That's not true, in fact they rocked far more than that, this description is due mostly because they are generally associated with the genre and the band is better than they are said to be. Yes there is glam here but also rock and their blues influences show, perhaps not as much as they did on the Heartbreak Station album and during the early 90s but they are there. After being signed to Mercury at Jon Bon Jovi's suggestion (KISS's Gene Simmons had tried previously but couldn't get them a recording contract) Cinderella's debut album Night Songs came out in 1986 during the explosion of the hair metal genre and their sound made them a hit their album reaching # 3 in Billboard in 1987.

They certainly have some glam in their music, Nobody's Fool is just that, Nights Songs as well to a lesser extend and some lyrics are glam but the fact is that this album rocks more than the average glam band's does. Tell me that Back Home Again doesn't rock! Sure the album has an overall glam feeling to it but like Motley Crue (this is not a comparison of the two band at all ) they rock harder than most hair bands. This album while it is considered glam certainly doesn't much happy, in fact it's pretty dark. They had great songs and I still enjoy them to this day. They were MTV darlings with their catchy song and glam looks and hit ballads but they should still be taken seriously, the music here is quite good!

My favorite songs here are the title track, the hit ballad Nobody's Fool, Shake Me, Somebody Save Me and Back Home Again. Cinderella is much heavier than their name suggests and is one of the better hair bands of the 80s.

That first album strikes again! With NIGHTSONGS, Cinderella jumped into the spotlight, with the help of MTV's Headbanger's Ball. Beyond the videos, though, there is still a lot of great music. Not to belittle the rest of the band, but Cinderella, for the most part, was Tom Keifer. Tom sang, wrote, played guitar, and played keyboards. He always reminded me of a well-fed Steven Tyler. He has an excellent voice, though and the guitar work for the band[I can't say it was Tom] is very good.
If you know the band already you probably have most of their music, but if not, this or their greatest hits would be your best purchases, with LONG COLD WINTER coming in a close third. The best thing about this debut is the songs that didn't make ONCE UPON A TIME[Greatest Hits]. There is "Nothing From Nothing", "Push, Push", "Back Home Again", and the title track. Of course, their big hits are here, too, "Shake Me", "Nobody's Fool", and "Somebody Save Me". Cinderella plays power pop and ballads; they are good at both.

I recently purchased this CD, having discovered 80's metal for myself after years of prompting from friends. White Lion and Def Leppard got me started, and I listen to those groups religiously now. I wanted some more of the same, basically, and I discovered Cinderella. All I can say is "verrrrry good."
Cinderella starts the album with a song I find attractively eerie and/or haunting: "Night Songs." Song three, "Nobody's Fool," is very good as well, and "Somebody Save Me," "Push Push," and "Hell On Wheels" just flat out rock.
Tom Keifer's voice (lead singer) is very similar to the lead singer of Def Leppard (can't remember his name right now), but with just a little more "screech", if you will. It's hard to explain, except that he's definitely got a good voice for pop metal, and if you like Def Leppard's sound of voice and overall music, you'll like this offering of Cinderella.
This CD, best described, is a perfect blend of Def Leppard and White Lion (Mike Tramp, lead singer of White Lion) not only in the sound of the singer's voice, but in their guitar and drum work, and their riffs and rock. I highly recommend the CD!

I'm a Cinderella fan and I'll admit that their look turned me off in the beginning, but if you listen to the album you don't get Posion/Warrant rock. These guys were taking their cue from AC/DC, Aerosmith, and heavy Stones.
This album is a LOT more bluesy than you'd think. Not blues. But VERY blues based. As other reviewers have noted as well there is a certain darkness to this album as well. There's something a little haunting about songs such as "Night Songs", "Nothin' For Nothin'" and "Back Home Again". "Shake Me", "In From The Outside", "Hell On Wheels" and "Once Around The Ride" all rock hard. The lyrics may not be all that original (admittedly, but then again rock lyrics generally aren't) but the band is just tight and the execution of the whole package is excellent. "Nobody's Fool" is an excellent power ballad, and as a kiss off has a slightly different slant than the usual sappy ones. And "Somebody Save Me" is a great song that's very poppy when you look at it without the overdriven guitar. "Push Push" is a song about sex but it has such a great riff behind it that it overpowers the somewhat formulaic lyrics.
Overall this album musically is so tight, and not quite the glam you'd think, that it comes off as a great, yet not representative mid to late 80's hard rock album.
