If you want to sum up most of the Night Ranger Albums from Neverland on it is like this...listen to the first song and maybe one other good ballad you can find on them and then throw the rest away. Just not alot of good stuff here. Stick with Dawn Patrol, Midnight Madness and 7 Wishes. If you want one more recent then those look at Man in Motion. I have always thought when you listen to Night Ranger in the Late 80s they weren't mimicking Bon Jovi or Motley Crue. I think they are trying to be Def Leppard. From the layered harmonies and ballads. The second song title is pulled right out of the second verse of Rock Rock Til You Drop. Better to just listen to Def Leppard and get the real thing. Not a bad imitation.
Yes! You can still ROCK in America!

Worth the wait! Night Ranger has restored my faith in Rock'n Roll! Just goes to show that when a band is authenic, they will continue to play and record great music that is new, but respects the collection of work they have produced over their careers! This album is great! Just like "Growing up in California" it is one you can listen the whole album from begining to end and find something to enjoy about every song....just like when we used to listen to them on vinyl! You can still rock in America!
I've been wearing this one out on the way to work. Upbeat, rocking, and not a bd cut on the whole thing.
I think this may be the best Night Ranger album. Awesome song writing. Killer guitar work with amazing vocals. Start to finish there is no weak spot here. The intro to "I'm Coming Home" is an incredible piece of music writing. I am a guy who lives for instrumentals and I have to say these guys put together one of the most mind bending performances I have ever heard. So refreshing to to hear a band who writes and plays their own music.
Vintage Night Ranger
This is an amazing album. High Road has that vintage sound that does make good for the road and the summer months. Rock On. Knock Knock Never Stop, also goo. X Generation and St. Bartholomew are good songs as well!
Night Ranger has still got it!
Awesome guys! This record shows that Jack, Kelly, Brad, Joel and Eric are playing at the top of their game. It is always fun to get a record from a favorite band, but it is a BIG plus when that record smokes like this one! Roll down the windows in my Mustang and crank the volume!
Jack, Kelly, Brad & the guys are still rocking just as hard as ever. Love the album and yes, it is going to be the soundtrack to my summer.
It will grow on you
By John Dietrich
After my first listen, I was really disappointed with with this effort. I really enjoyed Somewhere in California and was hoping for more. It's not as even as SIC, but there are some good songs High Road, Don't Live Here Anymore, and I'm Coming Home all take me back to Dawn Patrol, the other songs are hit and miss, I am hoping with more listens, it grows on me more.
Live show was great!

Just saw the band live at fest in Oswego IL. Great show. Place was packed with guitar loving head banging friends. All the songs you expext plus Freddies Comming Out Tonite! Even a Ozzy cover. I had a great time. Gonna listen to this new album and enjoy.
