Man, this guy has pipes!

"I tend to like the thrash side of heavy metal but I appreciate genuine talent in any type of rock band. This guy has to be one of the best vocalists I have ever heard. I was in the army when this came out, so I wasn't really able to follow the rock scene. I heard a clip and listened to it on Napster, that voice in unreal. If you like this guy, check out TNT (Knights of the Thunder or Tell No Tales). Their singer is Tony Harnell and he is in the same league as this Steelheart guy. MTV puts the deep six on guys like this him and Tony, but morons like Chester Bennington and Fred Durst sell millions - there is no justice in the world."
Just good rock'n roll.

"It's a tragedy that Steelheart's debut album hit in 1990, as the early '90s marked the decline of hair metal and the rise of Seattle grunge rock (Pearl Jam, Nirvana, and so forth). I say it's a tragedy because few work the glam rock formula as well as Steelheart, who would've easily risen to the popularity levels of Van Halen, Whitesnake, Bon Jovi and Mötley Crüe (and might have even surpassed those powerhouse greats) had they hit the scene but a few years earlier. Lead singer Mike Matijevic has a vocal range like none other, and while he possibly spends just a bit too much time up higher up than he should, it's a refreshing blast to hear a rocker with such undeniable vocal talent. Not that the band is lacking either, though, and nearly every track on this stellar album features killer-sounding guitar solos, rock-solid drumming, and head-bangin' melodies. High points like fast and furious "Rock'n roll (I Just Wanna)," the blues-inspired "Sheila," the as-good-as-they-get power ballad of "I'll Never Let You Go" and the dynamic duo of "Can't Stop Me Loving You" and "Like Never Before" just explode outwards in ways that'll make you wish your amp went to 11. Steelheart lacks the instantly recognition of bands like Van Halen and Mötley Crüe, and the writing never manages to break out of the hair metal cliches. But if you're like me and love those cliches of sex, drugs, and rock'n roll all night, you'll find few bands do it like Steelheart. Truly a hidden gem, and a near classic."
Steelheart Knows How to Rock

"Their debut self-titled album, Steelheart, is one of my favorites. The ballad, I'll Never Let You Go, got them some air time on MTV and and number of "Best of the 80's Metal/Big Hair Bands." The rest of album is really pretty damn good. Love Ain't Easy, Like Never Before, Gimme Gimme and Down 'n' Dirty really rock. Can't Stop Me Lovin' You, Sheila and She's Gone are more ballad-type tunes and Everybody Loves Eileen is fun-filled rock 'n' roll. If you like White Lion, Firehouse or Slaughter, you should defintely like Steelheart.Lead singer Mike Matijevic can really hit the high notes and belt out the songs. He's a more edgy version of White Lion's lead singer Mike Tramp. This first album is Steelheart's best and if you can find their second release "Tangled in Reins" it is worth buying, too."
