As someone who'd been a fan of the band since the Jefferson Airplane days, this album is the biggest piece of crap ever. The music is weak, soulless, pointless, and not even a pale shadow of what the band had once been. The only reason I bought this in the first place was to keep the collection complete and for Grace's two songs, which luckily are good, especially "I Don't Know Why" which I really like a lot. Grace's writing contributions are the only thing that earned this album a single star.
The problem with the Starship albums is that they're comprised almost exclusively of material written by outside writers. I don't have much time for artists that only perform other people's material. The exception here is "Transaltantic", written by Mickey and Craig. Decent song; its defintely my favourite following Grace's 2 contributions.
That's not to say that all of the non-band material was bad (I did really like "Love Rusts" on HOOPLA), its just that a performer that can't write their own material isn't much of an "artist" to me. And when you compare the stuff on these albums with the bulk of accomplishment from the Jefferson Airplane and Jefferson Starship eras, it simply doesn't compare very favourably.

Starship is a long-careered band with its history dates back as far as 60s. Right after Nuclear Furniture album in 1984 Paul Kantner one of the original members left the band with the ownership of half of the former band's name "Jefferson". Since then their music direction turned toward more catchy pop rock as seen in Knee Deep In A Hoopla sounding similar to Heart(1984) or Survivor's Vital Signs(1984) with Mickey Thomas participating as background vocal. This album also invites finest songwiters at that time including Diane Warren, known for Heart or Michael Bolton works, penning "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now", #1 hit from Mannequin soundtrack. Comparing with ...Hoopla, the sound became much edgier and closer to Survivor yet with pop-beat rhythm which makes the song memorable. Beat Patrol is a nice example of beat-pop. Ballads are super equipped with nothing's-gonna-stop-them combination of Mickey Thomas, high-toned emotional male vocalist and Grace Slick, one of the finest female rock vocalists ever born. Particularly I love Set The Night To Music nice slow ballad. Minor, less impressive tracks are fine as well such as Transatlantic. Overall this is the best they can get so far and unmissable.
Essential for Vital Signs and Heart(1984) appreciators. Good news for Starship fans is that Mickey Thomas will be back with his brand-new solo album.

5.0 out of 5 stars When you can't please everyone..... Jan. 27 2013
By David A. Johnson - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
When you can't please everyone, what do you do? You go out and make the best music possible. And that is what Starship did with their late 1980's release "No Protection." Many of the other reviewers have already written well detailed reviews of the songs on this CD. My personal favorites are "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now" & "It's Not Over ('Til Its Over)." But all the songs are great examples of the music you found in the 1980's. If you came of age in the 1980's, as I did, then there is a good chance you will enjoy this CD. If you are a big fan of the earlier songs from Jefferson Airplane then you probably will not like it.

So many have criticized Starship for "selling out" or abandoning their 1960's & 70's musical roots. Problem is, musical taste change and in the 1980's, just like in other decades, you went along with the taste of the time. Psychedelic rock of the '60's/'70's would have played no better on radio in 1987 than this CD would play today in 2013. It was heavy into light airy pop/rock, ballads, with synthesizers and guitars on full display. Face it, that is what was popular at the time and if Grace Slick, Mickey Thomas & Co. where going to do more than headline the tie dye oldies convention in San Francisco they had to adapt. If you enjoy the '80's and listened to Survivor, Heart, or Kenny Loggins then buy this CD and enjoy.
5.0 out of 5 stars Worth buying if you love starship. June 16 2016

I had this Record Album in Highschool. Love 5 of the 11 songs on it. Worth buying if you love Starship. I really like the first song "Beat Patrol" even though it wasn't a hit for them. I just always liked the tune. " Girls like you" is another great song that wasn't a hit. " Set the night to music" is another good song. I think it was a modest hit, Just not a smash. Of course the two biggest hits on here are " Nothing's gonna stop us now" & "It's not over til it's over" Both excellent songs. Love it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worthy Follow Up To Knee Deep in the Hoopla Feb. 1 2009
By Anthony Vera - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
As far as musical integrity and importance..STARSHIP doesnt come to mind. As far as light airy 80's rock songs, STARSHIP comes in for a dead center landing right into my brain. Knee Deep In The Hoopla( 1985) had 3-4 catchy songs and so does "No Protection" (1987). I liked the opening track "The Beat Patrol". Then there's the song from Mannequin "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us Now." That song could have been marketed as part of a "BAND-AID" project for stopping world hunger at the time.
"Set the Night To Music" is Spot-on for another solid hit. "Let the Children Follow" is catchy. In a nutshell, Starship followed suit from their previous album. Maybe it doesnt have quite the ultimate cheeziness of "Sara" and "We Built This City" but there's plenty of cheese whiz for you to enjoy. I know I do.
