The band's name and image might make you think this is straight-ahead glam, but once the guitars start cranking and vocalist Tom Keifer starts rasping out the attitude, you'll realize this is hair-metal mixed with bona-fide hard rock and easily one of the most-beloved debuts in the history of '80s hard rock/metal, though I personally think there's too many filler songs to justify calling this classic. Still, strip away those fillers and the remaining tracks are stone-cold fantastic, sporting enough energy to rock you right through the night.

Not The Lightweights You'd Think From The Cover

"I'm a Cinderella fan and I'll admit that their look turned me off in the beginning, but if you listen to the album you don't get Posion/Warrant rock. These guys were taking their cue from AC/DC, Aerosmith, and heavy Stones.This album is a LOT more bluesy than you'd think. Not blues. But VERY blues based. As other reviewers have noted as well there is a certain darkness to this album as well. There's something a little haunting about songs such as "Night Songs", "Nothin' For Nothin'" and "Back Home Again". "Shake Me", "In From The Outside", "Hell On Wheels" and "Once Around The Ride" all rock hard. The lyrics may not be all that original (admittedly, but then again rock lyrics generally aren't) but the band is just tight and the execution of the whole package is excellent. "Nobody's Fool" is an excellent power ballad, and as a kiss off has a slightly different slant than the usual sappy ones. And "Somebody Save Me" is a great song that's very poppy when you look at it without the overdriven guitar. "Push Push" is a song about sex but it has such a great riff behind it that it overpowers the somewhat formulaic lyrics.Overall this album musically is so tight, and not quite the glam you'd think, that it comes off as a great, yet not representative mid to late 80's hard rock album."
Don't judge this release by it's cover oryou will miss out o

"Yes, I will admit that because, of the Bon Jovi connection to the band. I purchased "Nightsongs" the day it was released in 1986. Fastforward 20 years, I'm still listening to Cinderella have everyone of their releases in my collection and you will not find Bon Jovi in my CD collection.
I have always thought their album cover was deceiving because your expecting Bubble Gum Pop Metal and yet another Monkey see Monkey do band. But that's not what you get, Tom, Eric and Jeff are awesome on this release (Fred didn't play drums on this, so didn't forget him) but got to say Jody Cortez does a decent job, the songwritings good and like that Nightsongs the 1st track. The Intro sets it up. Then they spring the surprise on you that they are just a Bluesy Metal Band and that's what I crave. Have always loved Nightsongs, Shake Me, Nobody's Fool (just turn up the bass), Nothin' For Nothin', Once Around The ride, Somebody Save Me and Push,Push. Twenty years later, like Hell On Wheels, In From The Outside and Back Home Again just as much. Definately, well worth it to track this release down."
