I have this cd, and it kicks butt!!!!

FANTASTIC ALBUM ALL THE WAY THROUGH. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

From: Kim Date: October 20, 2001 at 2:01
One of the best glam bands ever, and one of the best releases in that genre ever.

From: metal_man73 Date: October 31, 2001 at 18:50
This is a f**king great album!!! Bon Jovi and Cinderella was my first concert.This is in my top 10 hard rock album's of all time.Not a bad song on this one!!! Remember the videos???Talk about cool videos!!!

From: Scott Date: February 21, 2002 at 13:09
A very good CD...Forget about the image you have of this band and take it for what it is, a very good blues based hard rock CD...A must for 80's hard rock fans.

From: marley's my son Date: February 26, 2002 at 1:45
I agree with Scott, don't mind their ultra-glam image. This band knows how to rock. I even think that their blues-based hard rock could have survived the 90's alternative onslaught. Only their looks killed them.

From: dokken6008 Date: March 11, 2002 at 7:28
'Cinderella'. A strange name for a glam band, but definitely a name that sticks with anyone who has heard it even once. There is nothing about the band's debut,'Night Songs', that is ground-breaking or earth-shattering. It is just a good rockin' album with not one cheesy ballad in sight. Having said that, let me say that there are dozens upon dozens of 80's bands that should have recieved more attention than Cinderella did but that's just how things went. Cinderella is a good band nevertheless.

From: RichieRocker Date: May 12, 2002 at 18:49
This album is a must have. one of the best hair band albums ever made, its all out balls to the wall, guitars in your face, one of my favorites.

From: Ken Date: May 17, 2002 at 10:34
I saw these guys live last night and they kicked so much ass they weren't worried about taking names....I like Poison ok but Cinderella needs to headlining the tour.

From: richierocker Date: May 19, 2002 at 16:26
I agree with Ken Cinderella should be headlining the tour , the rock much more than Poison. I like Poison, but in my opinion Cinderella has more intensity in their music.

From: dokken6008 Date: May 20, 2002 at 7:36
richierocker-- I love Cinderella, but they are a bunch of lazy-asses. It has been eight years and these guys have yet to release new material. Poison is releasing a new cd TOMORROW. This tells us something. As far as I am concerned, Poison are much more dedicated to their fans than Cinderella have ever been and that is only part of the reason why Poison are so loved by their fans. The same goes for Tesla and Faster Pussycat--when are these lazy-asses going to release new material?

From: jason Date: May 20, 2002 at 16:42
See now Dokken6008, You are going to get me started! Was Cinderella's album 'Live At The Key Club' from 8 years ago?....NO!...It was 1999! You may say that it is only a live album, but it's their 1st major U.S. release that was live. So they are entitled to call it an album. As far as Tesla goes, they all have been in new band over the past few years. Such as 'Bar 7' (J. Kieth,T. Skeoch), 'Moon Dog Mane' (F. Hannon) & 'Soul Motor' (B. Wheat). Besides, Cinderella & Tesla didn't have a record co.

From: richierocker Date: May 23, 2002 at 16:33
Hey Dokken6008. Cinderella is definatly dedicated to their fans. I met Jeff Labar before a show in Boston, and he came out of the tour bus , we asked for his autograph and he said' hold on guys just let me take this phone call' He came back gave us autographs and realoly talked to us and listened to us, a really cool guy. Then the rest of the band came out and talked to us. These guys are dedicated and they arent lazy asses. Like I said before they rock harder than Poison they should headline.

From: richierocker Date: May 30, 2002 at 21:52
I would say this is one of the best rock albums of the 80s. not one bad song and these guys had a unique sound to them that most bands didnt really have. I cant wait to see them again this summer. Until then people, rock on and live it up!!!

From: WidoMakr Date: May 31, 2002 at 4:53
richie.... Not that I am telling you anything new but...I have seen quite a few concerts in my day....short of seeing VH with Sammy... Cinderella was the best I have ever seen...and when you want to talk about the live sound equalling the studio I dont think anyone is even close....They are great...No stupid ass pyro shit..just good kick ass tunes...Quote the WidoMakr....never more

From: dokken6008 Date: June 10, 2002 at 1:04
I'm down with everything that you guys are saying. I'm not trying to rile anyone up or anything, it just upsets me that we haven't heard any new studio material from Cinderella in such a long time. As for live performances, I haven't seen them live yet so I'll take your word for it. Ol' d double O sixty-O-eight didn't mean anyone harm in my above statements. Okay, so Cinderella and the Tesla boys HAVE been hard at work after all. I guess I'll have to point my finger back at Faster Pussycat now..

From: hbomb Date: June 15, 2002 at 1:10
D-6008...I've read several of your 'reviews'. You seem to be a newcomer to rock and roll because you continually make statements without too much rationale or knowledge behind them. Nothing wrong with having an opinion...but you need to come with a hell of alot more game than you've shown thus far...keep trying...and lighten up on some of these bands ok...if you don't like them...just say that and leave it alone.

From: jason (FA - Q) Date: June 15, 2002 at 1:21
Maybe Dokken6008 IS a 'Newcomer' to all of this! Hmmmmm......... Anyway, I am going to see Cinderella in about 19hrs. I will let you know how the show went. I can tell you right now that I won't be disappionted. 'I NEED A SHOT OF GASOLINE'.........

From: dokken6008 Date: June 20, 2002 at 3:11
Yo, hbomb. I never claimed to be a 'professional reviewer' of any sort--I just love good fuckin' rock & roll. What's the problem with that? I think that a lot of material from bands such as Tesla or Cinderella is great. What I get most upset with is when a band continues touring every summer without having produced new material for several years and expects me to respect them for that. Let's make it simple: you either like the music or you don't. Does that make me 'irrational' now?

From: dokken6008 Date: June 20, 2002 at 3:18
What I can say is that I am not a newcomer to good music and when I lay down twenty bucks for a cd that turns out to be pile & I am supposed to 'lighten up' on the musicians? You have it all backwards--it is not the fan's duty to remain 'loyal' to a band, it is the BANDS' duty to remain loyal to their fans. We as fans have been fucked over countless times from the likes of Def Lep, F.House, RATT and even DOKKEN. As fans, we have been sodomised, fucked over & thrown out the door too many times.

From: hbomb Date: June 20, 2002 at 22:09
hmm...okay...that's fine. Try picking up these albums used at a used CD store (especially newer releases). You get a discount, they really get nothing. I wasn't trying to dog on you. Just saying you should lighten up a bit. I admit I haven't read all your 'reviews', but they seem to have all negative. So, you're bitter that the heyday of these bands is past? I wish we could all go back myself. But...I'll take a tour with no new album over some boy band bullshit. ANY FUCKIN DAY!

From: hbomb Date: June 20, 2002 at 22:10
Peace D-6008...you rock your way, I'll rock mine. Just grab that copy of Mechanical Resonance (if you even like it...lol) and rock out. It'll be alright...

From: dokken6008 Date: June 21, 2002 at 2:32
hbomb, that's cool I guess you just have never gotten around to reading my more 'positive' thoughts. RATT's 'Detonator', Bonfire's 'Knockout', Poison's 'Flesh & Blood', Cinderella's 'Long Cold Winter', Def Leppard's 'Hysteria', Dokken's 'Back For The Attack', FireHouse's 'Hold Your Fire', SteelHeart's 'Tangled In Reins', AC/DC's highly under-rated 'Blow Up Your Video' and their 'The Razor's Edge' are just a few among plenty of other cds I have written positive reviews about. Good day, h.b.

From: RichieRocker Date: June 28, 2002 at 21:49
A must have, and I stress 'must have' because this is one of the best hair metal releases ever. This album is unbelievable! Everything about this album is good. The guitars ,vocals, bass, and drums. The whole nostalgic 80's vibe with attitude is in this album. It has to be in the top of its class, if you ask me. Im going to see these guys for the 4th and 5th times next week. Rock on Cinderella!!

From: dokken6008 Date: June 30, 2002 at 4:57
They are a very raw band R.R., is Cinderella not? Just plug into an amp and play. No echo-effects, reverb, programmed sound effects, nothing. A really basic approach to playing live, am I right? At least that is the vibe I pick up when listening to 'Live At the Key Club'....

From: RichieRocker Date: June 30, 2002 at 8:33
Agreed D-6008, I Agree with everything you just said, and I couldnt have said it any better myself! I cant wait to see these guys again, On Tuesday In New Hampshire, And Wednesday in Massachusetts. Rock on People!!!

From: RichieRocker Date: July 4, 2002 at 8:53
One of the most intense,pure rock bands ever!!you will never leave dissapointed after seeing Cinderella!!

From: RichieRocker Date: July 9, 2002 at 21:31
I met Fred Coury during the show In Massachussets on July 3rd. He was a really cool guy to talk too.He took time to chill out with me when it was hot and humid and a bunch of people wanted to talk to him. Thank you Fred.

From: The Frost Date: July 21, 2002 at 14:13
'Fred Coury' played with 'OZZY', 'London', 'Chastain', and 'Vinnie Vincent Invasion'.Later dude!

From: TIM Date: July 30, 2002 at 1:40
This is one of my favorite out of any genre. I've heard they are working on an album that hasn't been released yet. I don't know if the source is reliable though.

From: The Fizzy One Date: October 2, 2002 at 12:46
TIM, I just heard yesterday that Cinderella won't be putting anything out for a while now because? Oh, well, Tom's getting married, see, and well, we're sure you understand ... Now I love Nightsongs, probably my favorite of any Cinderella album, but I'm wondering if this might be a bit of laziness. They seem much more content to release greatest-hits albums and hop on this or that package tour every summer than actually write new material.

From: jarett r. Date: December 16, 2002 at 9:08
i've heard that before cinderella tom keifer played in the bands fascination, shove, telepath, and diamond.

Esta muy bien pero no escomparable con el cold winter es un buen debut

From: GlamHellion Date: February 14, 2003 at 2:40
When did Fred Coury play with Vinnie Vincent Invasion???

From: Gar Date: February 15, 2003 at 7:01
Great debut. Starts off strong but kind of fizzles out with the last 3 tracks. That said, Cinderella were and still are way ahead of the competition when it comes to making straight ahead rock & roll.

Es verdad que hay q respetar a vocalistas que son practicamente vitalicios en muchos grupos aunque su voz sea una 'perra en celo' y de aqu' sale cinderella.este disco es bueno pero la canci'n nobody's fool es un autentico delirio de grandeza.Recomendable

From: 80s metal freak Date: May 3, 2003 at 1:29
This has definitley got to be one of the best hair metal albums of the 80s, as well as the best hair metal band, Period! One thing I have always loved about cinderella is that you look at there image and you would expect another pansy ass pop metal hair group like poison, who by the way were the suckiest hair band of the whole decade, but you listen to there music and its heavy, bluesy, and kicks you square in the ass! I love it! This album smokes, from beginning to end. Long live Cinderella!

Otra banda,al menos para m' sobrevalorada.Nada de lo se puede escuchar en este disco, suena original ni llama la atenci'n a excepci'n de la exquisita NOBODY`S FOOL.El resto suena como una copia barata del primer AC/DC,cosa que se repite en LONG COLD WINTER, donde,otra vez una balada sublime los redime,solo en parteON`T KNOW...Quiz's lo m's logrado se vea en HEARTBREAK STATION,donde levantan la punteria con un cambio radical de sonido.

I saw them live last year with poison for the first time ever an they kicked ass, i missed them in 1986 with bon jovi but i finally got to see them and they were great they should have headline, sorry poison.... drove my mom crazy with this album would not stop playing it, love every single song.

From: Scandinavia Date: December 21, 2003 at 7:45
Well, the only Cinderella release that ever worked for me...Sold the rest of their catalog...

From: Fat Freddy Date: January 5, 2004 at 18:17
The cool thing about Cinderella is that they were glammy enough to get the girls, but they rocked hard enough that they appealed to a lot of metalheads as well. This first album is kind of derivative (especially of Bon Scott-era AC/DC) but it was ahead of the hair-band pack back then and it still sounds great now. As they progressed their hair got less puffy but the songs only got better. That's the sign of a good band.

From: Ariel Bender Date: January 22, 2004 at 18:04
Christ on a bike, surely this album was misspelled at the printers and was really called 'Shite Songs'. Utter dross of the first degree. Like there isn't enough tosh in the world already. This lot should have stuck to the day jobs at Wendys as they could all have become Crew Chiefs or something by now. Hanoi Rocks showed them how it should be done.

From: run2u Date: April 13, 2004 at 21:31
Estoy de acuerdo con Alejandro,en parte.Si bien'Long Cold Winter's' me parece INCONMENSURABLE(como acabo de escribir en la correspondiente cr'tica),'Night Songs'me crea m's dudas y durante un tiempo este 'lbum me result' hasta aburrido.Ni siquiera Nobody's Fool me parece nada del otro mundo,y por supuesto en mi opini'n no hay nada de obra maestra en este debut.Frescura,temas competentes,sonido ACDC con cierto'filtro'mel'dico,y poco m's.Recomendable para amantes del glam. 6/10 run2u69@hotmail.com

From: Alejandro Date: April 17, 2004 at 19:34
South american 80's heavy metal fan: I think this was a very good album by Cinderella. I really like it because it has all the energy of the 80's bands. The look of the 4 musicians is acording to their music, and the Tom Keifer's voice is great. However, Cinderella's music sounded a litte similar to AC/DC, but there is not a reason to think it could have been a copy of style. The song: 'Hell on wheels' makes me rock really hard. It's my favorite song of this album. alejandropc29@hotmail.com

From: Jack Date: April 23, 2004 at 2:21
Night song is simply the best 80's album and my personal favourite of all time.its even better than some of the other album which i consider is some of the best like skid row(skid row), metal health(quiet riot), tooth and nail(dokken), out of the cellar(ratt), appetite for destruction(g.n.r), hysteria(def leppard), invasion of your privacy(ratt..again) and girls,gils,girls(motley crue). oh.. and nobody's fool is simply the best and 'genius' ballad in the 80's if not the century.CINDERELLA RULES!

From: Rockhead Date: April 23, 2004 at 4:29
A good album but NOT the best album of the 80's-nowhere close. Van Halen, Y&T, The Rods, Icon, Streets, Bon Jovi all released superior product.

From: Jack Date: April 26, 2004 at 5:44
sorry...one of the best glam-metal album of all time. No doubt bout' that

From: Rockhead Date: April 26, 2004 at 7:26
Id agree with that!!

From: TIM Date: April 26, 2004 at 12:50
Blows away every one of those except Van Halen and Bon Jovi.

From: Jack Date: April 27, 2004 at 2:23
well ,maybe better than every bonjovi album except the slippery when wet and new jersey album.

Very doubtful!!

From: kostasraskolni Date: April 27, 2004 at 5:04
Hang for a sec Jack.You cannot compare these 2 bands.Bon jovi is a legend.The Bon jovi band is simply a perfect band.Bon jovi made this new style of hard rock(ooh the are just great musicians) and passed that stuff to these bands(skid row,cinderella...).Anyway, i should say that Tom Keifer is a great singer and some of the songs of this album are very good.See you guys!!!!

From: Great Dane Date: April 28, 2004 at 13:26
If I ever were to chose from any Cinderella release against any Bon Jovi release, I would choose Cinderella. Theyre far better. Not that BJ is bad, but theyre damn boring. Cinderella's music is straight forward, guitars between your knees Rock N Roll.

From: pozermaniac Date: April 29, 2004 at 14:52
Great Dane Cinderella are good!I like them a lot!But dont compare them to Bon Jovi! I wont waste my time explaining to you that,cause some things are taken for granted.Thats the way it is.Its seems to me that youre a new listener to this kind of music.So i suggest that you should listen to Slippery when wet or New Jersey or to 7800 Fahrenheit or to Bon Jovi or Keep the Faith.And if you still find them boring then try hip hop!

From: Great Dane Date: April 29, 2004 at 19:45
Well Im not a new listener, I have about 2500 cd's. More than 90 0s hard rock. Never said I didnt like Bon Jovi, I just find them too melodic, theyre too much of a 'mainstream' band and rely on making ballads. Sorry, thats my opinion, no offence. I have the BJ cd's you mention, but havent listened to them for a while. Theyre not bad, just not interesting. I have all Cinderella releases and listen to them frequently. About your last remark, I take that as a sign that youre really not that old.?

From: TheRipper Date: April 30, 2004 at 0:47
I agree with Great Dane here. Bon Jovi is good, definately will not turn it off if it's on the radio, but find it lacks a little something compared to the other big bands (say in this case Cinderella-which they're more rockin I think). I like 80's Jovi,and I know there are people that love him so much and will say no band of the era can touch them, but to me Cinderella gets the nod here for my musical tastes. By the way this is probably the best Cinderella record there is, followed by Long Cold.

From: TIM Date: April 30, 2004 at 1:22
I like Cinderella better than Bon Jovi. Just saying that Cinderella wasn't bigger than the 80s era Bon Jovi. Bon Jovi has sucked for many years now.

From: kostasraskolni Date: April 30, 2004 at 2:46
ok my friends there is sth i'd like to say.Do you think that there is sth you're fighting for?Hard rock is the kind of music we do like.What's the'new listener' or 'old listener'?i have '150000000'cds,so what!I think our music drove us crazy.But i agree with you pozermaniac.I can't accept the fact that we're just saying that words.What i'm trying to say-i want to make it clear to you-is that Bon Jovi is the beginning and the end of this kind of music.A new listener of hard rock must listen to bo

From: kostasraskolni Date: April 30, 2004 at 2:48
to bon jovi.He finds Cinderella on his way!

From: kostasraskolni Date: April 30, 2004 at 2:50
correct the 'that' to 'these'words

From: Great Dane Date: April 30, 2004 at 5:56
Erhh, calling Bon Jovi a hard rock band isnt right in my world. theyre a soft rock band, but thats a matter of opinion. If I were to give an advise to a new listener of Hard Rock, I wouldnt mention BJ. But rather bands like Aerosmith, Van Halen, Kiss, Uriah Heep, Rainbow, and Whitesnake even Sweet & Slade. Bands who did it all many years before BJ. Dont misunderstand me, I LIKE BJ, but to me, theyre overrated. End of discussion.We will probably never aggree on this. Lets move on to other bands.

From: pozermaniac Date: April 30, 2004 at 10:02
Bands like Cinderella owns to Bon Jovi so much.Thats a fact.Dont forget Jon Bon Jovi helped Cinderella to sign their first contract.Anyway Cinderella is a great band and im so happy that in our days around the world are so many people still listening to this great music!Long live Hard Rock!Check LA guns,Tesla,Talisman,TNT,Hanoi rocks, new albums!What great comebacks!!!!

Bon Jovi found Cinderella, helped them get their record deal, took them on tour and helped break them. Had it nt been for Bon Jovi-Cinderella could easily have ended up 'also rans' in a big field. Just as Bon Jovi helped Skid Row-he also helped these. Don't be puzzled. Jon and Ritchie also appeared in the home video Cinderella put out showcasing the video's for Nightsongs

Heavier album than the cover would make you think. 'Somebody Save Me', 'Shake Me', and 'Push Push' are all great hard rockers while 'Nobody's Fool' is one of my favorite 80's power ballads. 7/10

From: Rycheage Date: June 27, 2004 at 14:55
This screams hard rock from the moment 'Night Songs' kicks into gear. Very AC/DC minded but not a clone mond you. They have their own identity and power. 'Someboby Save Me', 'Shake Me', 'Night Songs' and 'Push Push' are infectious rockers but the real crown jewel is the power ballad 'Nobody's Fool'. Recommended. 9.0/10.

From: andrew Date: July 11, 2004 at 19:45
PRETTY GOOD CD AND BAND, THESE GUYS ARE REALLY TALENTED, AND ABOUA THE DISCUSSION BEFORE Y PERSONALY PREFER BON JOVI, BUT IT IS REALLY ALL ABOUT TASTE, THIS BOTH BANDS MADE AMAZINGLY GOOD HARD ROCK SONGS, SO ITS ALL ABOUT YOU PERSONAL TASTES.AND GREAT DANE, BON JOVI IS DEFINITIVELY HARD ROCK BAND(WAS A...)BECAUSE OF BON JOVI I STARTED TO HEAR HARD ROCK, AND TO A NEW LISTENER OF HARD ROCK I WOULD RECOEMND VANHALEN CNDERELA BON JOVI AEROSMITH MOTLEY CRUE DOKKEN AC/DC LED ZEPPELIN AND SKID ROW.

This is not hard rock!this is glam metal.

From: Metal Jay Date: August 4, 2004 at 21:40
Is there a better glam album? I think not. This was 'THE' album to have back when it was released, and these guys stiff perform the hell out of these tunes. I love this band. They define the 80's for me, and when I speak of the 80's, it's with nothing but fondness.

From: jack Date: August 30, 2004 at 6:55
Metal Jay-no,there will never be a glam metal album as good as night songs-not now,not ever!

From: Kryiis Karl Date: November 6, 2004 at 0:14
What make the difference with Cinderella is that there is real song writting, not only easy party music like. Kiefer is a song writer of quality. And he is a glam death vocalist. What ???? Yes, it is just to emphasize the fact that alternates closed throat and clear vocals. See what I mean ?

From: christo Date: November 21, 2004 at 9:08
the highlights are shake me, nobodys fool, and save me

From: Propane Date: December 1, 2004 at 11:27
Sleaze glam??? Obviously it's some so called 'expert' who categorizes these things. Whatever. This is an EXTREMELY talented lot. I saw them once and I've been hoping to see them again for quite awhile. Hard working, true to their roots musicians. Buy everything that has their name onit, no matter what it is.

From: gener8tr Date: December 7, 2004 at 11:05
Great debut recording. I remember this (album) very well when it was first released in the Fall of 1986. Shake Me and Nobody's Fool are fantastic back-to-back tracks. However, Somebody Save Me and Push Push are my personal favorites. Take a trip down memory lane and revisit this one tonight!

From: Mimbla Date: February 9, 2005 at 8:33
I like this band! This album is great!

From: chris strut Date: February 28, 2005 at 6:55
This album is far better than long cold...ALWAYS the first album of ALL bands is the most energetic,original,sensitive and shameless,and this band isn't different

From: Geoff Date: March 8, 2005 at 4:37
Awesome debut! This is one of those discs you can put on and listen to every track without hassle. Killer hard rock riffs one after another. Not my fave vocalist, but when the music's this good we'll let is slide. 'Nobody's Fool' is a brilliant ballad and of the rest, 'Nuthin' For Nuthin', the killer 'Once Around The Ride', 'Hell On Wheels', the other real gem - 'Somebody Save Me' and 'Back Home Again' are some of my faves. But this is a great 80's hard rock disc.

From: visitor Date: March 8, 2005 at 14:22
I'm a big 80's hard rock fan, and I can't believe I've never really explored this band! This is some of the greatest stuff of the whole genre! I don't actually have this album yet, but I got their collection Rocked, Wired & Bluesed (my first Cinderella album) the other day and it begins with the three first tracks from this album. I just can't get the opening riff of 'Night Songs' out of my head!! And I love Kiefer's voice, it reminds me a bit of Brian Johnson, but not quite as raw. Excellent!!!

From: StarCityRocker Date: March 8, 2005 at 16:16
You're in for a real treat because NIGHT SONGS is a monster!!

From: Aussie Dave Date: March 15, 2005 at 22:25
Another underated artist if there ever was one! This debut does have 4 of the best hard rock anthems you will hear, Shake Me, Push Push, Nobody's Fool and Somebody Save Me! Nothing like Bon Jovi, but discovered by them, these guys have more of a bluesy feel. However this is there most glam/hard rock album they released. I felt besides the 4 killer tracks, the rest of the album wasn't quite as good. But still a very worthy album in the collection. And a great debut! 8/10....

Man, I was 16 and headbangin' when this one came out. These guys to over the scene by storm (with a little help from Bon Jovi) and left you wanting for more. My favorites on this one are 'Somebody Save Me' and 'Nobody's Fool'. Classic stuff.

From: metalmaniac777 Date: March 13, 2006 at 19:57
Their band-name and image might make you think this is straight-ahead glam, but once the guitars start cranking and Keifer starts rasping, you'll realize this is glam/hair-metal mixed with bona-fide hard rock, and easily one of the most-beloved debuts in 80s hard rock/metal history, though I personally think there's too many fillers to call this a classic. Still, strip away the fillers, and the remaining songs are stone-cold fantastic, sporting enough energy to rock you right through the night.

From: briscoe1 Date: July 5, 2006 at 23:46
This rocked when it came out and still rocks.

From: themartin Date: July 24, 2006 at 12:56
1st of all I HATE THE ALBUM COVER, it gives a wrong idea about the band. 2nd and most important I love the music herein.The first 3 songs are classic 80's hard rock, My favourite is 'Nothin' For Nothin''. '...Save Me' lyrics are make sense even today.I am a little dissaponted abot the fact that FRed Coury don't acualy played on the album and that some guitar tracks were recorded by some guy named Barry Benedetta. This is a great debut, but all in all I think 'Long Cold Winter' is their zenith.

From: Melodiker Date: August 1, 2006 at 19:29
Cool Band......cool Album ! 8,5/10 shake me

From: Metalmusicman Date: January 3, 2007 at 20:54
First off for me, the Bon Jovi anything here, is the fact that Jon helped this band get going. That's really about it, because they sure as hell don't sound like Bon Jovi. This is more staight up rock n roll with an AC/DC flair. Sure it's not the most ground breaking debut of the 80's, but it does has some killer songs on it. 'Shake Me', 'Nobody's Fool', and 'Somebody Save Me' were all MTV and radio staples in their time. Shame the rest is so inconsistant. Could have been great. Instead just ok.

From: hernanHRM/AOR Date: October 22, 2007 at 18:04
'Somebody Save Me' El mejor tema del albun un temazo diria yo!!!! con un aire a Dokken claro solo en este tema, tiene un stylo demoledor sin duda alguna es un tema amenazador con mucho misterio. y nose quedan atras temas como 'Once Araund The Ride & Back Home Again' lo mejorcito del Disco..

l liked that record when i first heard it, but now after all these times i just cant understand why i liked it soo much. this defenitely is not bad album, it has 4 great songs. there is superb power ballad 'Nobody's Fool',great rockers 'Shake Me' and 'Push, Push' and my personal fav. song by cinderella 'Somebody Save Me'. Other songs on that record are not so good, they are not so catchy and thats probably why i dont like it very much.their next 2 albums were much better.

As a comment on the cover I'd state the classic Hard Rock/Heavy Metal image is forever the best and about as cool as it gets. When done right. As in styled long hair, cool wardrobe, good locations and all. It's the makeup and feminine aspects of some of these looks that are the bad. The industry wrote the total off as lame once they started promoting other music and people followed. That's what you see in many comments throughout the 90's and the 00's. It is possible for a band to 1. make good music and 2. look cool. All look and empty music I can understand, sound comes first, but this one rocks all the way through. A classic.

From: pie75 Date: June 27, 2010 at 1:53
guy's bon jovi is average and overrated to boot the only thing rock about him was his hair although he did take the cinderfella's out on tour but they have much more talent than him this is a great debut long cold winter was their finest moment the title track,shake me,nobody's foolonce around the ride and push push i love great album with a nice bluesy feel too

From: dreamer Date: September 23, 2010 at 18:38
Interesting discussion . . . It sounds like a number grew up in the 80s -- I grew up in the 70s on the same music the band did -- my first album was Toys in the Attic. Van Halen II took me through tenth grade. I also listened to a lot of Rolling Stones, and some true metal. That said, Van Halen in the 80s, uh, not so good (to me). I don't hear Van Halen in Cinderalla at all. AC/DC is a good rock (not metal) band, but they have never "shook" me. I'm a girl and I don't have a single Bon Jovi album, and don't consider them "hard rock" at all. I somehow "missed" this album in 1986 -- I believe it was because I played Welcome to the Jungle for about 18 months straight. Heard hits on MTV though. Got the next two Cinderella albums which I like even more. The cover and looks, of course, suck. But if you notice, they even made Axl tease his hair for the first album cover. Re all the comments about laziness above -- google Keifer and voice. Good grief.

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: September 25, 2010 at 1:00
Keifer's voice issues are pretty well-documented, but all the while, they were still touring most years, and still no new music. Tom occasionally made noises about a solo album, but that never happened either. Supposedly, they had some legal issues that kept them from recording for a while, but those were squared away years ago. I just don't think they're at all motivated to do a new record, personally, just based on interviews I've seen adn read.

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: September 25, 2010 at 1:08
I'll be damned, I don't think I ever commented on this record. All right, I do hear a big AC/DC influence on songs like "Shake Me" and "Push Push," and obviously, there's Keifer's screechy voice. But basically, this is just stripped-down, East Coast hard rock, a la Kix, Dirty Looks, etc. "Nobody's Fool" takes a big bite out of "Bringin' On The Heartache" (I've heard a demo version that was quite different from the way they later recorded it for this album, though). Production's a little weird, not very bottom-heavy, and with drums that sound like they were recorded from across a large, empty room. But there really isn't a song on here that i don't like. Favorites would be the title track, "Shake Me," "Soembody Save Me" and the overlooked "Back Home Again."

From: nholden59 Date: October 15, 2010 at 19:02
True, what themartin said. Mr. Coury isn't on the album due to some strange politics I understand. Barry B. is an old friend of mine (I grew up in Broomall, PA too) and a very fine guitarist. I'm also a guitarist (and a good one), and we had the same guitar teacher as kids. Barry was not an 'outsider'though and was actually in Cinderella for a short stint, then joined Pete Way's Waysted. Anywhoo, Keifer is one great songwriter! Saw them 3 yrs. ago in Mountain View, CA and they still 'have it', though TK's voice did start to give out near the end of the show. Very fine musicians in that genre. Not bum song on any of their releases, IMHO.

From: DanDare Date: October 23, 2010 at 3:55
I bought this when it first came out and I had it on vinyl. They immediately became my favourite band at the time. I bought the t'shirt and I went to see them at Donnington (then called Monsters of Rock) and they were fantastic. The AC/DC riffery and vocals make it sound dated now and 'Night Songs' sounds like a dirge it's so slow. Overall a good debut album, but not a patch on what was to come...

From: rick kerch vzla Date: January 11, 2011 at 20:19
Tim resumed all in his comment way back in 2001...Fantastic album all the way through..highly recommended... and i wouldn't agree more...really a killer debut!!!...Jon Bon Jovi somehow was the mentor of this band,actually he discovered them and put them on the spotlight...Jeff Paris and Tony Mills participated as guest musicians on the album..."Night Songs" is a raw yet solid song,"Shake Me" & "Nobody's Fool" are both classics of the band already,"Nuthin' For Nuthin'" killer,"Once Around The Ride" & "Hell On Wheels" both songs are a** kickers ,"Somebody Save Me" reminds me of Dokken somehow & "In From The Outside" another hot shot...more???..find out by yourselves!!!.96/100

From: Doug Date: January 12, 2011 at 11:00
Saw these guys last year in Colorado. Warrant opened up for them. Fun show. Afterwards both band members were roaming around the place. Shook a couple of hands; they were nice and approachable. They played a bunch from this great album.

From: Animal! Date: February 27, 2011 at 22:59
This is their best effort by far,The rest progressively went down hill from here.

From: edwithmj Date: February 6, 2012 at 17:35
Another great debut. Night Songs is bluesy, Shake Me is very AC/DCish and one of their best, Nobody's Fool is a decent ballad which, again is quite bluesy, Nothin' For Nothin' is an explosive rocker and another favourite and my last pick from this is Somebody Save Me which has a decent rhythm. This isn't as good as the follow up but is still up there with other classic debuts of the genre.

From: J.Wylder Date: February 16, 2012 at 6:49
Yes, Cinderella's debut album Night Songs, that sold an amazing 3 million copies, a result of good songs, videos and a very successful tour with legends Bon Jovi, is indeed a classic album. It was about perfect timing too, since '86 was a really good year for this type of band and videos. Jody Cortez obviously played all the drums on the recording, before Fred joined. And the only thing to complain about here is Andy Johns' production and mixing of the songs, and the mix of the rhythm section esp is really bad, indistinct bass and a tinny and plastic drum sound, not pleasant to listen to. The sound mixing of Heartbreak Station is a lot better (to give you a reference). Still a solid album.

From: JONBONPIGO Date: October 1, 2014 at 16:58
Awesome Album...One of my Top 10 All-Time Night Songs Shake Me Nobody's Fool Somebody Save Me Each of these Grade A to A+ in my books... Push Push..Hell On Wheels..and Back Home Again are also Excellent..

From: 123charpenay Date: November 15, 2019 at 20:30
yes no doubt this is their best record .after it was the song of the swan.no inspiration with a bad singer.

From: Auslander Date: March 19, 2021 at 15:09
This band may have looked all glam in their image on this album but the actual music is really bluesy hard rock. Tom Keifer's vocals are one of the selling points. He has a whisky-soaked rasp of a voice that sounds like he has spent a month at sea without talking. I dig it. "Shake Me" is one of those cool party rockers that you can automatically remember the tune just by stating the title. But the absolute classic is the ballad "Nobody's Fool" which has a masterful lyric and really is memorable. Definitely one of the best tracks of 1986 period and also of the entire genre. 91/100. Essential.

From: Auslander Date: May 13, 2021 at 7:25
1986 and Sleaze Rock found a new hero in Philadelphia band, Cinderella. Incorrectly labelled "glam" probably cause of their look on the album cover, their debut features the unmistakable vocals of leader Tom Keifer. Some can't handle his raspy tones but I find it a feature. Shake Me is a sleazy party anthem. Nobody's Fool is a ballad that really hits home lyrically. Not sappy at all. Somebody Save Me is awesome as is the underrated Back Home Again. Cinderella would further refine their bluesy style on later releases but this is where is started. A sleaze rock classic. Rated A.

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: May 14, 2021 at 15:47
1986 was the year the new breed started coming out and replacing the likes of Quiet Riot and Twisted Sister. The two biggest releases of the year were Look What The Cat Dragged In (which I don't like at all except for the title track) and Slippery When Wet (which I never need to hear again, ever). Therefore, I'm going with Night Songs for my pick for '86. This was actually the second hard-rock album I ever owned, after Appetite For Destruction. The highs may be higher on Long Cold Winter, but for me, Night Songs is a more consistent listen all the way through. The title track might seem like a weird way to start the festivities, being slow and menacing, with that howling chorus, but it absolutely works! "Nobody's Fool" is a great ballad, although I've heard early semi-pro recordings that have more of an uptempo feel. In its official form, it sounds more than a little like "Bringin' On The Heartache" by Def Leppard.

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: May 14, 2021 at 15:54
There's also supposed to be a low-budget video for an early version of "Shake Me," from 1984—I'm guessing Philly must have had a local music-video show or something? AND! the band appeared in a TV commercial for a local place called, I believe, Al's Chili Dogs, from '83 or '84—I think it's still on YouTube somewhere. Anyway, back to the disc, there are hints of the bluesiness that would dominate the band's sound on future records, but even these trace elements set them apart from other bands at the time. And "Back Home Again" should have been a single!

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: May 15, 2021 at 3:54
A final note: drums are performed by one Jody Cortez. Andy Johns was not impressed by Fred Coury and brought this guy in for the sessions. As otherh pointed out, he got Cozy Powell and Denny Carmassi to do Long Cold Winter. Not sure why Fred doesn't play on Still Climbing.
