INFORMATION OM PRODUKTEN
Bent Out Of Shape was the seventh and last studio album before Blackmore and Glover took part in the Deep Purple reformation.This album is the most "americanized" album of all Rainbows album and it's more or less pure AOR, and it's obvoius that Foreigner is one of Ritchies favourite-bands. For me as an AOR-lover - this is a great album. The Purple and Rainbow-audience from the 70's probably hated this album, but if you see on it for what it is, it's great. "Street Of Dreams", "Desperate Hearts", "Stranded" and "Can't Let You Go" are all superb in the genre. It's actually not more to say about it... Well - for me as a complete nerd of the band I can also mention that the LP has "Desperate Heart" at 4:04, whilst the cassette has this track at 04:36, repeating the verse after the guitar solo. Similarly, "Make Your Move" is 03:56 on the LP, yet 05:25 on the cassette, on account of a reprise of a bridge section and a much longer playout.
