Let's set the record straight. This is not a good album by any means. It doesn't work as metal. It's too soft to be hard rock yet still at times too hard to be soft rock. It's quite a mishmash but this is what guilty pleasure are made of. As cringeworthy as ballads like "Carrie" are, there are the equally as cheesy yet entertaining rockers like the title track, "Rock The Night", and "Cherokee". Still, it's easy to make fun of this band, especially with a singer named Joey Tempest but I'm sure there's a lot of you who keep this record hidden in a basement where no one else could find it. Even in its worst moments, there are tracks here that are worth at least one listen. Then again, it'll be hard to get the synthesized keyboard riff of the title track out of your head after you hear it.
