Long Cold Winter is the second studio album by American glam metal band Cinderella. It was released in 1988 on Mercury Records.
With Long Cold Winter, Cinderella started to move away from the glam metal music of their previous album and into a more blues rock-oriented direction, akin to early 1970s Rolling Stones, Aerosmith, Humble Pie, Bad Company, and Deep Purple.
The record reached No. 10 in the US and became double-platinum for shipping 2 million copies in the US by the end of the year, just as their debut album Night Songs had done earlier. It was later certified triple platinum.
In 2005, Long Cold Winter was ranked number 457 in Rock Hard magazine's book of The 500 Greatest Rock & Metal Albums of All Time. .
