All Music Guide - Rob Theakston
With Crimes of Passion, Pat Benatar escaped the dreaded sophomore slump, thanks in no small part to the song that would become the most well-known song of her career, "Hit Me with Your Best Shot." The rest of the album is mildly hit or miss, with a few moments of filler. Thankfully, Benatar avoids the synth-happy trends of the early '80s and delivers a hard rocking ten-song session of power pop tempered with a few ballads for balance. And while "Hit Me with Your Best Shot" was one of her most praised moments, her version of Kate Bush's "Wuthering Heights" is probably one of the most underrated songs of her entire catalog.

    Pat Benatar "Crimes of Passion"

    This is one of many Pat Benatar's best cd that has been produced. If you liked Pat's other cd's entitled "Precious Time" and "In the heat of the night", you'll enjoy this one as well. I enjoyed all the songs written that are compositionally done exceptionally well, along with her other music in the past. I highly recommend this cd "Crimes of Passion".
