Private Audition is the sixth studio classic by Heart. Released in 1982, the recording spent fourteen weeks on the Billboard charts and includes the standout, “This Man Is Mine.” It is the final recording to feature longtime members, Mike DeRosier and Steve Fossen.

Private Audition starts tough with “City’s Burnin’,” possibly the band’s most underrated song, but it’s dragged down by the trite songwriting that follows. The introspective “Bright Light Girl” is reminiscent of “Dreamboat Annie,” but it lacks the sweet spontaneity that made the latter so successful. “Perfect Stranger” foreshadows the band’s mid-’80s transformation from Zeppelin-esque hard rockers to power balladeers. The fact that Heart’s success is divided cleanly between the two styles makes this transitional album fall all too forgettable in the middle.
