It is an elegant, nervous and sleek collection of pop songs, and it's a little more upbeat that many of her other albums. It is a perfect time capsule of what the mid-80's had to offer, for better or worse. Songs like "Moth to a flame", "Overnight observation" and "Culture shock" were graced by funky arrangements that made them arresting and unique, while the title track and "Toughen Up" were fine contemporary R&B pop songs. The ballads were fantastic too, with "The Right Moment" closing the album on a highly emotional note. And it has to be said that Olivia's vocals were at their most versatile on this album, going from pop and rock to retro-styled ballads and funk.

"Perpetual Burn" is the first studio album by the guitarist Jason Becker, released in 1988 through Shrapnel Records (United States) and Roadrunner Records (Europe). Jason Becker's solo album set new standards in progressive music. It embodies brilliant compositions featuring highly structured and complex guitar lines. This record paints a clear picture as to why Jason succeeded Van Halen and Steve Vai in David Lee Roth's organization.

These roles have been filled by Lamb of God drummer Chris Adler and Angra guitarist Kiko Loureiro, respectively.

"Physical" and "Make a Move on Me" were brilliant singles from 1981's Physical album, and they achieved their status as timeless pop classics without the help of a Xanadu soundtrack. "Overnight Observation" from Soul Kiss doesn't come close to the magic of those radio gems. It, like the front and back cover photos, seems a bit contrived, as does much of this album. "You Were Great, How Was I?" is a duet with Carl Wilson, and features he and Christopher Cross providing authentic Beach Boys harmonies.

Alive! was the album that catapulted Kiss from cult attraction to mega-superstars. It was their first Top Ten album, remaining on the charts for 110 weeks. Culled from shows in Detroit, New Jersey, Iowa, and Cleveland on the Dressed to Kill tour, the record features producer Eddie Kramer doing a masterful job of capturing the band's live performance on record…

Dynasty marked the first time that the original four members of Kiss didn't all appear together for the entire album – session drummer Anton Fig subbed for Peter Criss due to the latter's erratic behavior and injuries sustained in a serious car crash…

Love Gun was Kiss' fifth studio album in three years (and seventh release overall, peaking at number four on Billboard), and proved to be the last release that the original lineup played on. By 1977, Kiss merchandise was flooding the marketplace (lunch boxes, makeup kits, comic books, etc.), and it would ultimately lead to a Kiss backlash in the '80s…

Kiss' 1974 self-titled debut is one of hard rock's all-time classic studio recordings. Kiss is chock full of their best and most renowned compositions, containing elements of Rolling Stones/New York Dolls party-hearty rock & roll, Beatles tunefulness, and Sabbath/Zep heavy metal, and wisely recorded primal and raw by producers Richie Wise and Kenny Kerner (of Gladys Knight fame)…
