Hit Me With Your Best Shot
Label: Chrysalis\EMI Records (USA)
Aside from inspiring the definitive look for any "babe" in the 1980s, Pat Benatar also delivered a string of undeniably strong AOR records between 1979 and 1982. Crimes of Passion was her second and worked as a blueprint for much of the semi-hard rock that dominated the airwaves in that decade. "Hell is For Children" is the one you may have forgotten about.
