Album Description:

BENT OUT OF SHAPE was the seventh and last studio album released by Rainbow before Ritchie Blackmore and Roger Glover took part in the Deep Purple reformation. It was originally released in 1983 as an LP and cassette. The first CD version to be released featured several longer edits compared to the vinyl version. It was recorded in Sweet Silence Studio in Copenhagen in about 7 weeks. This album is generally referred to in reviews as a commercial effort by the band, attempting to repeat the success of the song "Stone Cold" and the album STRAIGHT BETWEEN THE EYES. As a result, some of the songs, like the first single released from this album, "Street of Dreams", are usually considered to be more in the album-oriented rock style, instead of the hard rock sound of earlier Rainbow albums. "Stranded" is a fine leadoff track that showcases the heavy pop crossover sound of the group. "Can''t Let You Go" is a radio-friendly tune showcasing the emotional vocals of Turner. "Fire Dance" rocks hard, while "Anybody There" is a tender, bluesy instrumental. Richie Blackmore''s controlled soloing clearly influenced artists like Joe Satriani. "Street of Dreams," a rock-radio hit, is probably the best representation of the band''s final days - the song''s production, hook, and solo make it quite memorable. The entire album sounds polished, but not too glossy, courtesy of producer and bassist Roger Glover. "Drinking With the Devil" is a tale of rock & roll excess. The metal-injected "Make Your Move" closes the album and also the book on a premier heavy rock band.

The album was particularly aimed at the U.S. market: the title is an American idiom rather than a British one. The music video for "Can''t Let You Go", directed by Dominic Orlando, was filmed in New York City (1984) and inspired by the 1920 silent b/w film THE CABINET OF DR. CALIGARI. Along with "Street of Dreams", directed by Storm Thorgerson (1983), it became a part of Rainbow''s "The Final Cut" home video collection (1985).
