Night Ranger was one of the most inconsistent bands of the 80s. One minute they put out a song that was sublime--the distilled essence of what a well-crafted pop/rock song should be--and the next they were wailing away on a shoddy mish-mash of cliches and drivel. I never could quite figure them out. Apart from that, as I've said before, 7 Wishes is easily their best album and contains some of their best songs. Driving home tonight I heard "Goodbye" for the first time in maybe a decade, and was struck by just how good a sentimental song it is. All the pieces fit.
