Heavy Metal Masterpiece

"Some many bands -- for want of a better term -- peter out. Not Y & T; they went out with a bang. Because, no matter how much you love the band, you have to admit that this is the last classic Y & T cd. It's the last time Joey Alves & Leonard Haze were a part of the band, and they went out rockin' like nobody's business. Down For The Count, coming on the heels of the much more socially-minded and change-of-pace compilation called In Rock We Trust, was back to just good old fashioned rock and roll. Well, except for the cover. It's got to be one of the strangest heavy metal covers ever: Count Dracula, on the balcony of some seedy hotel with a 1950s style railing, leans in so close to biting into a luscious female robot's --yeah, I said, robot's -- neck. And his right hand is oh-so opportunistically cupping a metal mammary. Wow. There's no getting around the music. It opens with a serious, scorching rocker about a young guitar player who broke through heck or high water. It's got love and don't-understand-love songs: "Anytime At All" ("you can call me . . . anytime at all"), "Face Like An Angel" ("she's got a face like an angel, but the devil's inside of that girl"), and my all time favorite, "Looks Like Trouble," with it's awesome bluesy opening and kicking-it-into-full-gear crescendo and its cool slow down story: "The first time I saw that girl, oh, man, I knew I was in love; she dug her high heels into my shoes and said, `Hey, boy, why don't you buy me a drink.' I said, `Yeah, sure, ah, sorry for putting my foot under your heels, ha ha, oh, man, that face, those eyes, her dark tanned thighs, oh, man, I knew, I knew that was in love --- IT LOOKS LIKE TROUBLE!!!" Another great kicker, "Anything for Money" ("I'll do anything for twenty bucks, man -- I knew this girl in Baltimore, all the men, they stopped at her front door . . . ")This also includes one of their biggest hits that was played all over the radio, "Summertime Girls." This is one of the absolute best heavy metal albums ever, and the remastered version contains vintage live tracks of "Mean Streak" and "I Believe In You," both absolute killers. This is a heavy metal masterpiece for all time.
