I hate this album. Okay, it sold over 3 million copies in the USA and spawned 3 Top 20 singles (#1 "Alone", #7 "Who Will You Run To", #12 "There's The Girl) but I simply do not care for this at all. This is NOT the band I fell in love with over their earlier albums. They turned from hard rocking sultry sex goddesses into mainstream pop idols. And I am not a pop fan, unless it is soda pop. And then there is only one kind I like. So why do I even have this? Because it came in a stack of albums that was given to me...I sure didn't waste my money on it. Harsh, maybe, but that's the reality of it. Heart - Bad Animals

This is the "other" Heart, the power ballad Heart I don't like. This was more successful than "Dreamboat Annie" and "Little Queen" and "Dog & Butterfly." Go figure.

They had some big hits with 'Magic Man', 'Crazy On You' and 'Barracuda' earlier in their career

I honestly don't know if there's even one Heart song that I actually like.

I loved the first 4, the next three were kind of hit-or-miss, and then they entered the mainstream pop era with the album prior to this and...nope...

@m_audrey6788 Did you let it finish? It changes from acoustic to hard-edged rock about halfway through it

@JolietJake Heart could rock and rock hard back then and be soft and subtle without being sappy.

Yeah, I could tell by your rather soothing words on the MCM video this morning that you're aiming to use this one for a frisbee. But how do you really feel???? I think it was a Columbia Records conspiracy. Look at all the bands on Columbia or Epic that went from rockers to schlockers in the 80s (Chicago, REO, Heart).

I let the first side play all the way through, but I couldn't make myself try side 2

I don't like their 80's stuff at all.
