Great aor rock. This album contains the hitballad "Alone" Together with "Brigade" from 1990 (with the hit "All I wanna do)" two must-buy albums. Recommended.

From: koogles Date: January 13, 2002 at 6:28
The second of three well-polished AOR CDs from Heart in the late 80s. We all know the hits, but there are some standout album tracks as well: "You Ain't So Tough", for example, is simply incredible.

From: 9 CHAMPIONS A 1 Date: June 30, 2002 at 11:42
Pese a tener buenos temas(los primeros),considero que para ser del año 1987,debian haber sacado un disco algo mejor.IRREGULAR.

From: Andre Tekken Date: August 7, 2002 at 12:46
This one is a bit different from the previous one,but yet still an extremely highly recomended effort!I guess this one is a bit more experimental,having sometimes a bit of a bluesy sound to some of the songs but still very aor!Theese songs have some different kind of rithms!The whole record is still very athmospheric and EXTREMELY moody!My favourite one is also dialMTV(87)top 10 is (There`s The Girl)!To this one I give it a 10!Also you never get tired of listening to it!

A real pop-rock classic. Listen this album which includes an overall atmosphere of romance to see how pop-rock is made actually. Ann Wilson is among the best female rock-singers in the world. Her impressive unique voice is much better than most of today's chicks. I wish she would have been on the scene especially in late 90s when ordinary female "so-called" voices rushed into the rock-world. This record, together with their first, is one of the best late 80s' pop-rock albums. I extremely recomme

Call me a jerk but man this is boring! The two first tracks are okay but the rest of the album is a collection of lullabies...

From: robert Date: November 18, 2003 at 18:53
No esta mal, pero estoy d acuerdo con el Champi. Grandiosos temas, como siempre, pero para mi, esta a años Luz del siguiente BRIGADE, para mi el mas grande q han hecho y q haran esta geniales hermanitas.

From: 80s fan Date: November 26, 2003 at 12:38
I still remember when the video of ALONE used to be played in the t.v. around 1987. Man, what a video! I mean, Nancy looked sexy. I still call her sexy, if you ask me. Ann is fatter now, but it doesn't matter. She has a great voice!

From: Blaine Date: February 3, 2004 at 3:15
A lot of bands in the 80's had a lot of energy. This ones no exception with a pumped up, feel-good sound. Their best CD. Never tiring. The last one is good too. "Who Will You Run To" and "What About Love" always remind me of Seattle.

From: illimey Date: February 3, 2004 at 10:34
Their best CD? Errrrrrrm, don't think so. Heart went from being a superb, powerful rock band to being a very good AOR band - then they released this set of mostly poor pop rock and I lost interest.

From: Vancouver Date: February 6, 2004 at 16:29
Ah, c'mon!!! It was 1987! It was better than most CDs I listened to in the '90s!!! Songs like RSVP, Wait For An Answer, and Bad Animals didn't have the momentum like the others. I'll say that. I only played those if I'm in the mood for it. I use to play the rest of the songs on guitar and drums.

From: Vancouver Date: February 7, 2004 at 14:57
I felt the same way about U2 "Rattle and Hum".

The 2nd of the 'Big Hit' albums and one that is on par with the S/T release, if not better in places. Ann Wilson is Outstanding as ever (this woman must go down as one of THE best female vocalists ever)and is ably backed up by the rest of the band, and some excellent material, featuring Another Dalbello track (Wait For The Answer)which is probably the Strongest track on offer amongst the 'Hits'. Superb

From: Big Papa K Date: June 29, 2004 at 1:31
I don't like this one as much. Some of the songs are as good if not better than the self titled album ("Alone", "There's The Girl", "Who Will You Run To"), but their is more filler on here. 7/10

From: CheeseStooge24 Date: July 17, 2004 at 21:51
1st off, I loved Heart, but not this one.Blaine, what r u thinking? Their best!? Have you heard any of the others?I have 2 agree w/illimey,this was a bit of a dud. Trying too hard to make a hit record.Bad Animals was a good song & Want you So Bad is my fav track here, a few other good ones, but way too much throw away top 40 forty junk.Mostly bad '80's music.I saw this tour, like I said, I love Heart, but this was no where close to their best (Little Queen).In their defense, I blame the label.

From: AOR freaky Date: July 18, 2004 at 9:48
Fantastic record and far better than all they did in the seventies (yes, Little Queen included). This is after the selftitled masterpiece of the eighties their best. O.K., it's commercial, but what's wrong with that, as long as it is great ? ! It's not because you are in the charts that it is always bad !

From: illimey Date: July 19, 2004 at 1:51
There's nothing wrong with being commercial as long as the music is great... which is precisely why this album is so disappointing. The music is, frankly, lame. At least the 'Heart' album still rocked a bit. This one bumped, ground and whined it's way into the charts.

From: Joan Date: July 31, 2004 at 21:12
Para mi Bad Animals y el anterior disco de Heart son mucho mejores que Brigade. Las canciones tienen muchísima fuerza, "Bad animals", "RSVP", "Alone"...que bestia!

From: Alberto 4 Date: October 5, 2004 at 15:34
Sólo escuchar el riff de Who Will You Run To para darnos cuenta que las guitarras ya están bien delante, aunque todo gira en torno a las preciosas melodías que surgen de la voz de Ann Wilson, especialmente en Alone, imprescindible oirla a todo volumen si quieres sentir su fuerza contenida. Tremendo el torrente de voz de Ann en canciones como Wait For an Answer o Bad Animals, alternando agresividad y sensibilidad al mismo tiempo. Sofistificación en la producción de Ron Nevison y temas impecables.

From: Cherokee1975 Date: October 6, 2004 at 3:46
Ante todo saludar a toda la peña, y en particular a mi gran amigo Alberto, el cual como podeis apreciar es un filósofo en este grand mundillo del hard rock. Aunque mi etapa de adolescente no era otra que escuchar Metallica, Helloween y Megadeth, aparte de las litronas y pipas, tambíen he oido grupos tan buenos como Heart, y para mi opinión me quedo con el "Brigade" que con solo oir "All I wanna do" consigue enternecer a cualquier duro heavy y sacarle unas lagrimas. ohh what times! Manolo.

From: Propane Date: December 2, 2004 at 19:30
I wanted to like this one beyond hope. Extremely disappointing piece of trash. No intelligent songwriting, whatsoever. A waste of money.

From: Geoff Date: February 12, 2005 at 0:28
This is pretty nice. I really like 'Alone'. Good AOR disc.

From: Harry Date: February 23, 2005 at 11:30
I think this album is a classic. The song "I Want You So Bad" is my favorite. Despite Ann Wilson's battle with weight problems, she still looks good and has a tremendous voice. I rate this album an 8 out of 10.

From: Rafo Phoenix Date: August 28, 2005 at 0:15
Good AOR album, la verdad de las cosas Heart tiene su Gran Joya en ese Heart del 85 que para mi no se acercan ni el Brigade ni menos este, este disco esta para compararlo con el Brigade tanto en cortes y por el molde que estan hechos, ahora en cortes los 1,2,3 y 7 lo mejor del disco, mi favorita There's The Girl nada mas que acotar.

From: caritosmatanza Date: January 28, 2006 at 11:58
Un pelín decepcionante en su momento, esperábamos más después del homónimo anterior . Más popero , menos aorero y para la parroquia rockera uno de los más olvidables.Pero tiene buenos temas -mucho rellenito de la época - y buenas ideas. NO es mi favorito de la banda, ni mucho menos,pero se deja oír.De todos modos, estas niñas saben hacerlo mejor, y recuperaron con Brigade poco después. 7´5/10

From: Carlos A. Date: July 22, 2006 at 12:27
Clasico de la etapa AOR de HEART, maestria vocal y claro buenas guitarras y teclados que impresionan, si no se le hiciera la tragica comparacion con los tremendos HEART y BRIGADE, para mi no decepciona en lo absoluto, aparte de los temas conocidos: "Who Will You Run to", "Alone", "There's The Girl" hay verdaderos temazos como "Wait For an Answer","You Ain't So Tough" y la oscura "Strangers of the Heart" y no se olvidan de las raíces folky con RSVP con acustica a lo Led Zep. Recomendado 9./10

From: edwithmj Date: July 25, 2019 at 15:20
Probably my favourite Heart album. I especially like Who Will You Run To, Alone (two great melodic tracks with nice keyboards), There's The Girl and You Ain't So Tough. My favourite would have to be Easy Target with great catchy vocals and rhythms.
