  Pat Benatar - Biography - AOL Music
Benatar quickly established herself as one of rock's top vocalists, scoring a hit right of the bat with her debut album, 1979's In the Heat of the Night, which spawned such radio favorites as "Heartbreaker" and "I Need a Lover" (the latter of which was written by a then-unknown John Mellencamp).
Benatar's sophomore effort, 1980's Crimes of Passion, more than delivered on the debut's promise and it's often considered to be the finest recording of her career.
Benatar returned back to her patented arena rock sound with such further studio releases as 1993's Gravity's Rainbow and 1997's Innamorata (although the latter of which was largely acoustic-based) and while the albums didn't exactly measure up to her earlier releases, both were solid efforts.

 Pat Benatar
Pat Benatar's a guilty pleasure for me and many other veterans of the early 80s: she wasn't subtle, original or profound, and really the only emotion she's good at projecting is betrayed anger on the verge of tears.
Benatar's first rock and roll album in five years, and the band finally landed on all fours, with a sturdy mix of funky bass (courtesy of Linx), crunching guitar, and intriguing drum sounds.
But it's very carefully made (writing, arrangements and production, all by Neil and/or Pat), without any of the gimmicks, tackiness or throwaways tunes of their late 80s output, so if you're a mellowing (not to say aging) Benatar fan, this could easily be the disc of your dreams.

 Death of the guitar solo? Pat Benatar: Go @ Blogcritics.org
Benatar's vocals are solid and she displays that she still has the skill to hit a variety of notes but it would be nice to hear a harder rock edge backing up her raw, sexy vocals like in the days of songs like "Heartbreaker," "You Better Run" and "Treat Me Right."
Benatar can still sing very well, and the new songs on Go are competent and will sate diehard fans, but there aren't really any chart busting tracks that will bring back long departed 80's fans.
One would think that Benatar would have stayed true to their successful formula from Crimes of Passion, but in today's largely sololess music scene, they cut out the solos and cram an extra song or two onto the disc, thinking (?) that this is something that more appeals to today's music audience.
