Title - 'Now That's What I Call Power Ballads Hits'
Artist - Various
Well, with the world's best-selling, multi-artist series NOW That's What I Call Music! back with its 57th edition, Sony Music Entertainment have decided to also release alongside it a brand new compilation of hit songs that encompass (what they believe to be) some of the best power ballads hits of all time.
Previously unavailable in the US, 'NOW That's What I Call Power Ballads Hits' contains 18 beloved favorites and classic tracks from such well known bands as Bon Jovi, Skid Row, Journey, Night Ranger, Kiss, Mr. Big, Cheap Trick and so many more!
We kick-off this incredibly-addictive-to-listen-to musical set of flashback tunes with Bon Jovi's 'I'll Be There For You,' and follow that up nicely with the trio of Skid Row's 'I Remember You,' 'Heaven' from Warrant and then (and perhaps the lesser known) 'Fly To The Angels' from Slaughter.
Next up is the always brilliant 'More Than Words' from Boston's Extreme and that is followed by Night Rangers' mid-tempo motoring song 'Sister Christian,' Journey's pulsating 'Open Arms,' and then both 'When I See You Smile' from Bad English and Cinderella's 'Don't Know What You Got (Till It's Gone)' cult classic hairspray rock ballad.
Continuing the orgy of hairspray and hair tosses comes Boston with 'Amanda,' KISS with 'Forever,' and then both 'High Enough' from Damn Yankees and Tesla's 'Love Song.' That's followed by Mr. Big's beloved 'To Be With You,' the lesser known Kix with 'Don't Close Your Eyes,' and Mike Reno & Ann Wilson's power ballaed to the max, 'Almost Paradise' (the love theme from Footloose). This incredible, truly great to still hear CD is then brought to a terrific close with Cheap Trick's 'The Flame' and then a quite stunning 'Silent Lucidity' from the mighty Queensryche.
