Bent Out of Shape is the seventh studio album released by the British hard rock band Rainbow. It was originally released in August as an LP and cassette. The cassette featured several longer edits compared to the vinyl version. It was recorded at Sweet Silence Studios in Copenhagen in about 7 weeks. The song "Street of Dreams" has been re-recorded in two versions by Blackmore's Night in for their fifth studio album, The Village Lanterne.
The version featured on a regular album was sung by Candice Night. The other version, a bonus track on a special edition of the album, was performed in a duet by Night and former Rainbow singer Joe Lynn Turner. A remastered CD reissue was released in Maywhich restored the artwork of the original release.
This has two tracks of a longer duration than on the first US CD issue. This album is generally referred to by critics and fans as a commercial effort,   with the band attempting to repeat the success of the song "Stone Cold" and the album Straight Between the Eyes.
As a result, some of the songs, like the first single released from this album, " Street of Dreams ", are usually considered to be more in the adult-oriented rock style, instead of the Trance Emotion (Noise Factory Mix) - U.S.U.R.A.
- Trance Emotions rock sound of earlier Rainbow albums. Howard Johnson of Kerrang! The music video for "Street of Dreams" was banned by MTV for its supposedly controversial hypnotic clip. The LP has "Desperate Heart" atwhilst cassette and remastered CD have this track atrepeating the verse after the guitar solo.
Similarly, "Make Your Move" is on the LP, yet on cassette and remastered CD, on account of a reprise of a bridge section and a much longer playout.
