Re: Bent Out Of Shape - a review


BEST RAINBOW RECORD!
BEST JLT RECORD!
BEST RITCHIE BLACKMORE PLAYING!
BEST AOR/MELODIC HARD ROCK RECORD EVER!
ONE OF THE BEST ALBUMS EVER RELEASED - PURE GENIUS!

P.S. Rising cannot be compared to this. NOt because it's worse. It's different genre, though Fire Dance is just as good as any metal stuff with Dio.
P.S.S. Make your move is a bonus track for Christ's sake! Snowman is the perfect finale. If we're not counting MYM there is not a single note on this album which is not classic.

I usually get restless during Stranded. The rest is great!

Better than Escape and Frontiers? Mmmm, not sure about that.

Make Your Move - a bonus track???
I bought BOOS when first released and MYM was on it.

Make your Move was a cassete only bonus. Not on LP!

Make Your Move definitely isn't a bonus track. The cassette had extended versions of Make Your Move and (I think) Desperate Heart but Make Your Move was on the vinyl for sure.

Maybe there were severa different LP editions back them? BOOS was my fave album in high school so my memory is crystal clear on this one!

I wouldn't say it's the best AOR/melodic hard rock record ever either but to my ears it is way way better than anything Journey ever did...

From what I remember Journey only had one decent tune - Wheels in the Sky or something like this. IMHO they are several leagues below Rainbow.

Journey's pop rock blows away Rainbow's attempt at same. Much better tunes.
