Long After Dark based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Released just after the hit "Hard Promises", this album has been overlooked. Everybody wants either the commercial hit, "Damn the Torpedos" or the jangly-guitar poetry of "Full Moon Fever". However, I'll tell you, there's nothing like hearing Tom's dark side of writing. The song "Straight Into Darkness" shows you that side you wish you had more of. That unsure, blind, musician who won't give in no matter how bad it looks. I especially love it when he says, "I don't believe the good times are over/I don't believe the thrill is all gone/Real love is a man's salvation/The weak one's fall, the strong carry on"-GREAT!
