Released In 1985

Heart was almost completely washed up by the time this album came out,They hadn't had a hit single or album in like 3 years at the time.But "What About Love" gets released and BAM! instant comeback.What a comeback album to, though probably not Heart's best album, it is by far their best album in the 80's, and it does have my favorite Heart song on it, the tru 80's classic "Never".Sure, most die-hard Heart fans probably think this record stinks, but this is truly a great piece of 80's AOR.Ann Wilson is by no doubt one of best female vocalists of all-time, and while her sister Nancy Wilson has some great vocals herself, the guitar is where she excels the most at.The hits the record is known for ("What About Love", "These Dreams", "Nothin At All, "Never") are all high-caliber singles, but this album also has some REALLY underrated gems like the upbeat, the more poppy 80's sounding "All Eyes" and the rocker "Shell Shock".Also the opener "If Looks Could Kill" is one heck of an opener and definitely the best opener Heart has ever used.If you love AOR you will like this, by no doubt, and if your a Heart fan it's really a toss up, because it depends on if you prefer the 70's Heart or the 80's Heart.
