The one the only the mighty TRIXTER

"Trixter was the most underrated band of all time."
Worth it if you're a Trixter fan...

"Under Covers is Trixter's third and final release before Alternative music forced the band into early retirement in the mid 1990s. While their self-titled debut album received some commercial success, and "Hear!" has often been praised as the best of their three albums, Under Covers left nary a mark as it came and went in late 1994.

The album itself has some worthy moments, but certainly not without a few flaws as well. The cover of Supertramp's "Take the Long Way Home" is incredibly well done and the highlight of the album. "Dirty Deeds", "Revolution", and the live version of "Fight For Your Right" (in which the band does the ol' switcheroo) are solid inclusions also. However, the dual versions of "50 Ways to Leave Your Lover" quickly become boring and repetitious, especially when you consider that there are only 8 tracks on this disc to begin with. A different cover as an 8th song, and perhaps 1 or 2 more to round it to an even 10, would have done wonders towards making this a more respectable release. Still, it's an enjoyable album for what it is, and one I go back to often when I'm in the mood for something obscure from the Hair Metal days.

For any fans of Trixter that never picked this one up, I would recommend adding this to your collection if you happen upon it at a reasonable price. But for fans of groups such as Bon Jovi, Warrant, and Firehouse who are considering Trixter for the first time, I would definitely go for one of their first two releases instead.
