    I didn't know what to expect but they definitely captured their old Night Ranger sound and the vocals are really as strong as ever. Jack sounds great and Brad is ripping on guitar . I would definitely recommend it.
  • give it up

    seriously, stop....... Night Ranger has sucked since the 80s. Move on and stop making bad music.

    As an 80s child, I loved Night Ranger. They had some doggish stuff, admittedly and a LOT of over-produced stuff too (Big Life, even though it had a lot of memories on tape) but this is just awesome. Dual guitars shredding, great vocals, and songs that are composed like a good rock song should. This is the way I expected and hoped NR would sound in the 21st Century, had they made it that far. They did, and it is. Rock on.
  • A Return To What Works

    I was a big NR fan growing up in the 80's. I bought all of their albums thru 'Man in Motion'. After 'Motion', I couldn't pull the trigger to purchase any more albums because their sound got harder and edgier. They seemed to have lost key elements in their music that helped them achieve chart success in the 80's. I must admit that I originally did not like 'California' because it sounded like more of the same from the last 20 yrs. However, their excellent release of '24 Strings and a Drummer' caused me to give 'California' another listen. I agree with the other reviews below: 'California' brings back some 80's flavor with a modern flair. The twin guitar harmonies, melodic hooks and backing vocals that made their early material so strong is back on this album--making it worth you checking out. "Growing Up", "Bye-Bye Baby" and "Time Of Our Lives" are my favorite tracks. Keep up the great work guys!
  • Wow, they really are still kicking' A.

    Now I've heard a thousand 'come back' albums from classic bands only to be disappointed but Night Ranger really kicked out some jams on this one. Its not sterile sounding like so many other come backs & the songs really are classic sounding with a fresh twist at times (while keeping the spirit of the old days). I've rejected so many 'later' albums but I really dig this and it brings back the same feeling of being young in the 80's. I'm 48 as I write this, but age is only a number and I say you are never too old to ROCK…..

    I picked up this CD last summer and immediately fell in love with it. The title cut rocks. Lay it In Me is also another great tune.
  • Yeah! You can still rock in America!

    All in all this is a great album it takes me back the voice is not quite the same anymore but good enough. They went back to what made them great in the first place! Yes they may have borrowed from there past to make the new, but the new is GOOD!
  • What a comeback CD!

    Along with Michael Monroe's and Mr. Big's new disc, this new NR disc is a contender for the best release of the year. Admittedly, I haven't really been into any of their releases since 'Big Life'. This new disc retains all the elements you love NR for; vocal harmonies, big choruses, wild guitar solos (including the 8 finger tapping). There's only one song I tend to skip over. The rest is great. The old sound of the early records is there, but sounds fresh and modern with today's technology yet still sounds modern and not dated. Highly recommended!
  • Unbelievably Great

    I'll be blunt - Night Ranger peaked on their third album, Seven Wishes. That one was followed by two good, but lesser albums. Then the band broke up, got back together, and put together one horrible album after another. Somewhere in California sees the band completely redeem themselves. The three opening tracks are great, but it's on track four, Follow Your Heart, that we see this is more than just a nostalgia album. At nearly seven minutes this song opens with a lengthy heavy instrumental jam. There's not a bad song on the album. The first half of the album is great, but the last half is even better as the album peaks with Rock-n-Roll tonite. The close with a fantastic cover of Dirty Deeds. Can't wait to see these guys live - hope they play alot of the new songs.
