Pat Benatar was riding high in 1981--just coming off her biggest success yet with the previous year's CRIMES OF PASSION, she immediately issued her third album, the U.S. chart-topping PRECIOUS TIME. While not as strong as its predecessor, PRECIOUS TIME was another big hit, spawning several more radio hits.
The album proved to be one of Pat's last hard rock-oriented releases (she would explore pop and synth sounds on her future albums). It doesn't disappoint, including as it does one of her biggest hits--the power ballad "Fire and Ice," as well as the soaring "Promises in the Dark" and the epic title track.
