Background: Released in 1985, Heart was the eighth studio album by Heart and their only album to reach #1 on the U.S. charts, selling more than five million copies.

The album put four singles into the U.S. Top 10: “What About Love” (#10), “Never” (#4), “These Dreams” (#1), and “Nothin’ at All” (#10.) gave Heart a 4 1/2 star review:

Heart was pretty much considered washed up when they released Heart in 1985. They learned a few important things while they had taken a short sabbatical — they knew that hooks were important and they knew they could play up their looks for MTV. So, they delivered both with Heart, giving their audience anthemic hooks and tightly corseted bosoms, leading to the most popular album they ever had. … There’s still a lot of filler on this record, but the best moments are among the best mainstream AOR of its era.
