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.Read more ›
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.
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!
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.

If you can get pass the cover art, you'll find this is an avergae enjoyable hair metal album, with good riffs and decent songwriting.Published on June 15 2004 by Botnik Roller
Wow. I'm so excited to find others who like Night Songs. I think Cinderella is the best. I bought a great poster of them off of ebay. I just wish they'd tour on the east coast. Read morePublished on May 25 2004
