Night Ranger (7 Wishes) 1985





By the time 7 Wishes came out, Night Ranger had unfairly been pigeoned-holed as a ballad band. Honestly, how could they be anything but that when their biggest hits were ballads. The band didn't do themselves any favors with 7 Wishes because once again, their biggest hits were....you guessed it....ballads. The album as a whole is a bit uneven. A few lackluster songs that are nothing more than filler. But and this is a BIG BUT, they have some amazing kick ass solos from Jeff Watson and Brad Gillis. It's just a shame that the songs themselves are so mediocre.

Having said that, there are some great hard rock tracks like I Will Follow You and Night Machine. I absolutely love Four In The Morning, but I wouldn't even think of putting this in the 'rock' category. It's more of a pop song than anything else. But like all Night Ranger albums and somewhat ironic that I pointed out earlier about their ballads....the best songs here are in fact the ballads, Sentimental Street and Goodbye being their biggest hits here. Personally for me Goodbye is the crown jewel for them here because it blends the sensibilities of a power ballad and some AMAZING guitar work. Just listen to Brad shred in the outro to the song. Geeze man, that is wicked good!!!!!!! There are times when I just keep playing the outro on loop over and over and over. His tone is sick!!

Some great songs to be found here for sure. I just wish that it was more cohesive as a whole.

Fave Songs: Four In The Morning, Sentimental Street, Night Machine and Goodbye
