Bad Animals is the ninth studio album, but tenth album overall by the rock band Heart. Released in 1987, the album was another major hit scoring similar success to their previous record Heart in 1985. RIAA certification as of 2010 is five times platinum, indicating sales in excess of five million copies in the US alone. The album reached No. 2 on the Billboard album chart. Bad Animals contained the number one hit single "Alone", while "Who Will You Run To" reached No. 7, "There's the Girl" reached No. 12, and "I Want You So Bad" reached No. 47. The album is notable for containing only four tracks with writing contributions from lead members Ann and Nancy Wilson.
The album found the band in fine form, continuing the mainstream hard rock style from their previous album while adding more depth and emotion to the overall performance. In addition to the four singles, two other tracks were notable: "Wait for an Answer" due to Ann Wilson's opera-meets-metal vocal delivery, and the title track for its intertwining passages of Black Sabbath style darkness with Pink Floyd-esque brightness.
Heart is an American rock band who first found success in Canada. The only constant members of the group are sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson. Heart rose to fame in the mid 1970s with music influenced by hard rock and heavy metal as well as folk music. Their popularity declined in the early 1980s, but the band enjoyed a comeback starting in 1985, and experienced even greater successes with power ballads and pop hits into the 1990s.
With Jupiter's Darling (2004) and Red Velvet Car (2010), Heart made a return to their hard rock and acoustic folk roots. To date, Heart has sold over 30 million records worldwide. Heart was ranked #57 on VH1's "100 Greatest Artists of Hard Rock".
