Night Ranger (Midnight Madness) 1983





Midnight Madness is known for one song and one song only, their MEGA, MONSTER Power ballad Sister Christian. This song alone gives the album an automatic 3 stars. It's their biggest and most famous song in their entire catalog and there isn't one person I know that doesn't like it. It's awesome. So, what about the rest of the album? Any good. Actually, it's very good. I haven't listened to this one from front to back in well over 20 years. There are a ton of great songs that actually sound better now than they did back in '83.

The album opens with the kick ass (You Can Still) Rock in America which is the perfect song to kick things off. The album isn't perfect, but its pretty damn close. The "weaker" song is the last song Let Him Run which isn't a bad song by any stretch. It would be the best song in any other bands catalog. It's just that it is a bit underwhelming when comparing them to their better songs like Rumors In The Sky, Why Does Love Have To Change, Sister, Touch Of Madness, Passion Play, When You Close Your Eyes and Chippin' Away.

Touch Of Madness is particularly interesting because it sounds like a song that Ratt could and should have written. Go check it out and tell me it doesn't sound like something that could have been on Ratt's Invasion Of Your Privacy. The dueling guitar work between Brad Gillis and Jeff Watson through the entire album makes this a joy to listen to again. Jack Blades and Kelly Keagy as always sing great.

Fave Songs: Pretty much all of 'em. Top dog award goes to Sister Christian, (You Can Still) Rock In Amercia and When You Close Your Eyes
