Overview

Pat Benatar's forgotten 1997 album, Innamorata, is an acoustic-heavy collection in keeping with the organic, acoustic trend popular in the '90s, yet still incorporates Benatar's trademark rock & roll soul. The songs on this set are not the traditional electric guitar fare -- these songs are fleshed out with strings and acoustic guitars, yet they still manage to rock like Benatar's best. The album has its share of moody, bluesy songs, such as "Dirty Little Secrets" and "I Don't Want to Be Your Friend," as well as acoustic ballads, such as "Papa's Roses." But the best are the straight-ahead rockers like "At This Time," "River of Love" (which also possesses an irresistibly soulful groove), the catchy, radio-ready "Only You," and the amazing "Strawberry Wine." The album is mature, the music is soulful and gutsy, and Benatar's operatic voice is in fine form. This sadly overlooked set is a must for any self-respecting fan of one of rock & roll's true top-notch queens, and proves that this gal's artistry is right on track.
