Patricia Mae Andrzejewski released her first album in 1979. This information would leave most of us unmoved if the opus was not called "In The Heat Of The Night" and if the artist name of this young woman was not Pat Benatar.

Destined for the opera, she is discovered in 1977 in a New York cabaret. Two years later, she releases her first LP which instantly propels her into the upper echelons of the star system. The seventh best-selling album of the year and a platinum album in the United States, "In The Heat Of The Night", which stayed on the charts in France for six months, has since become a staple of the rock scene for the past forty years. Some people talk about a brown Blondie but it is more appropriate to talk about a dark Blondie. Pat Benatar plays Rock that sometimes turns into hard rock.

'Heartbreaker' is the perfect example. Triggering hit of Pat Benatar's success, it is not stingy in decibels. Morevover the album is full of highly melodic tracks, with notably 'Don't Let Him Show' (a cover of Alan Parson Project) and 'My Cloud Sleep Alone' in which the singer plays with like a roller coaster. We can also take out a 'No You Don't' - written initially for Sweet - well muscled, as the very sharp guitar playing of Neil Geraldo. For the "people" touch of this review, you should know that the latter will marry the icon afterwards.

"In The Heat Of The Night", Pat Benatar's first salvo, has hit the mark. Success is on the way and it will not stop there. But this is another story.

ARCH ENEMY: Will To Power (2017)
DEATH METAL - Led by an Alissa White-Gluz at the top of her shape, Arch Enemy reinvents itself with an overpowering and orgasmic "Will To Power"...
IN THIS MOMENT: Ritual (2017)
ALTERNATIVE METAL - In This Moment offers us a sixth opus which is not only the darkest of his career but above all the most elaborate, the most adult too, the work of a band that has become great.
