The left-field commercial success of the year, Heart is a six-member Vancouver-based band built around the dual talents of lead singer and lyricist Ann Wilson and her sister Nancy (melodist and acoustic guitarist). Though crudely produced, the album has an intensity seldom found on more polished records.

For the complex, synthesizer-drenced classic rock mysticism of "Magic Man" to the straight-up rock of "Crazy on You" and the dreamy title track, Dreamboat Annie expertly melds a singer-songwriter's imagination with a rocker's muscle -- adding three classic cuts to the 70s rock lexicon in the process. * * * * 1/2
