All Music Guide - Alex Henderson
Though they had their moments, Lita Ford's PolyGram albums tended to be uneven. When the graduate of the Runaways -- a great but neglected '70s band that also boasted Joan Jett and Cherie Currie -- moved to Dreamland/RCA in 1988, her solo career got somewhat of a boost, both creatively and commercially.
