Pat Benatar: Wide Awake in Dreamland (1988)

benatar wide awake

By Scott Goldfine

Pat Benatar’s patented fiery vocal style is alive and well on her latest effort, “Wide Awake in Dreamland.” The lyrics, which embrace love, social and party themes, match the varied music, which ranges from power ballads to tough rockers.

For sheer vocal energy, Benatar still has few rivals in the rock world. Standout tracks include: the title cut and “Let’s Stay Together.”
