Amazing 80's Sounding CD From Autograph Singer

"When I think of 80s hard rock/metal a few bands automatically come to mind and make me smile,one is Y&T and the other is Autograph,there was just a really special sound that these bands had. The music had an edge and yet you could almost see the smile and gleam in the eyes of these bands,they were having fun! It wasn't all serious doom and gloom
these guys knew how to have fun,party,and sing darn good music and it showed!
All this leads me to my review of Steve Plunkett's debut solo album 'My Attitude'I think this CD proves that Autograph had a few more great albums in them before they vanished from the scene. It also shows that Steve was one heck of a great songwriter.
These songs have such a great vibe,especially the opening track 'Heavy Pettin' and the 2nd song 'Louie Louie'
it sounds very similar to the first Autograph album 'sign in please' and a bit like the 'Missing Pieces' album from Autograph
not really any giant leaps forward but honestly any drastic change would have ruined this...
The biggest surprise for me was finding one of my favorite songs on here 'If I Had My Way' (which is a beautiful love ballad) that first was on Every Mother's Nightmare's CD 'Wake Up Screaming'
I was so happy to hear this song on here,and Steve does an amazing job with it.
The album is very consistant,not a lot of songs jump out but none let you down either,it's very balanced
and the production is top notch,not to mention Steve is singing as great as ever!
I found this CD by accident (luckily) and I'm glad I bought it
the upside - great 80's style music,performed expertly,the best songs are 'Heavy Pettin' 'Louie Louie' and 'If I Had My Way' but it's really strong the whole way through
the downside - aside from those mentioned,the rest of the songs don't really jump out at you as singles,but that's okay because it sounds great start to finish and it's more of a total experience then 1 or 2 great songs alone,which is the sign of a great CD,the only other negative is I really wish Autograph or Steve would continue to make great music like this,I really miss it
the bottom line - this is perfect for any fan of 80s style hard rock music,it will take you back to a simpler time,great riffs,great singing all done with a smile....I recommend it!!! Donutman says so!!!"
