  • Reception

    After the blandness of Rompin' & Stompin', Rock the Night fared considerably better. This was due in part to having fellow veteran musicians such as Carr and Porter, who are "as wild as Walker, but less wayward." The "tethering" of Walker by the others leads to some fun moments. That doesn't mean that they performed flawlessly, though, since reviewer Chris Smith comments how "Hide Way" "has so many wrong notes that it's almost a new composition" and that other songs also get "a thorough mauling."
