Night Ranger is one of those many bands that never
received the recognition they derserved. Another band in
that same vein is Survivor. Both bands do NOT have ALL of
their original albums on CD. It's real hard to find any
original albums by Night Ranger, (except if you're into
Greatest Hits compilations). Anyway, NR's 1985 release,
7 Wishes ROCKS!
Last year when their Midnight Madness was chosen
as one of my album picks of the week, (yes, i've been doing
this for quite a long time!) they had just been recognized
with their ballad Sister Christian. Even though that
album was pretty good, I liked 7 Wishes a little bit
NR's musical style is mostly hard-rock, and they prove that
here with rockers like the title track and This Boy Needs To
Rock. The other songs rock as well, featuring the 80s-rock
style. The last song Goodbye is a great ballad, despite
the title, and how hard it is to say goodbye to someone.
After listening to this album, you feel pretty damn good!
NR member Jack Blades teamed up with Styx's Tommy Shaw and
rock legend Ted Nugent to form Damn Yankees years later, so
if you're familiar with the Yanks, you'll like Night Ranger.
Overall, this album has comparisons to Survivor, Def Leppard,
the 80's Kiss, to name a few. If you like to rock, Night Ranger
is highly recommended to satisfy that need.
