"Bent out of Shape" was the last studio album released by Rainbow before Ritchie Blackmore and Roger Glover took part in the Deep Purple reformation. It was originally released in 1983 as an LP and cassette. The first CD version to be released featured several longer edits compared to the vinyl version.

A remastered CD reissue was released in May 1999, which 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 in reviews as a commercial effort [ [http://www.revelationz.net/index.asp?ID=1318 Album Review - Rainbow - Bent Out of Shape - RevelationZ Magazine ] ] [http://rateyourmusic.com/release/album/rainbow/bent_out_of_shape] by the band, attempting to repeat the success of the song "I Surrender" and the album "Difficult to Cure". 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 album-oriented rock style, instead of the hard rock sound of earlier Rainbow albums. The album was particularly aimed at the US market: the title is an American idiom rather than a British one.

The music video for "Can't Let You Go," directed by Dominic Orlando, was filmed in New York City (1984) and inspired by the 1920 silent b/w film "The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari". Along with "Street of Dreams," directed by Storm Thorgerson (1983), it became a part of Rainbow's "The Final Cut" home video collection (1985).

Track listing

All songs written by Ritchie Blackmore and Joe Lynn Turner except where indicated
#"Stranded" – 4:25
#"Can't Let You Go" (Turner, Blackmore, Intro - David Rosenthal) – 4:18
#"Fool for the Night" – 4:04
#"Fire Dance" (Turner, Blackmore, Roger Glover, Rosenthal) – 4:30
#"Anybody There" (Blackmore) – 2:36
#"Desperate Heart" – 4:00
#"Street of Dreams" – 4:23
#"Drinking with the Devil" – 3:41
#"Snowman" (Howard Blake, arr. by Blackmore) – 4:33
#"Make Your Move" – 3:55

The first US CD edition (Polydor 815 305-2) has "Desperate Heart" at 4:04, whilst the US remaster (Polydor 314 547 367-2) has this track at 04:36, repeating the verse after the guitar solo. Similarly, "Make Your Move" is 03:56 on the initial release, yet 05:25 on the Remaster, on account of a reprise of a bridge section and a much longer playout. The other tracks are of equal length on the two releases, allowing for a second here or there dependent on the indexing.
