2008 digitally remastered edition of the first album by this San Francisco Hard Rock/Metal band under their Y&T moniker (they were previously known as Yesterday & Today). Along with a handful of bands that would need no introduction to Heavy Metal fans the world over, Y&T did more than their fair share to make the '80s the all conquering decade that it so obviously was for Hard Rock. This 1981 album was the first of a blistering salvo of releases that set the bench mark high - almost too high! - for those that dared to follow. Earthshaker is a solid gold hard rockin' classic that sees its first time release on CD here in a digitally remastered for that guarantees that it sounds better than it ever has. Time to dust off that air guitar and throw some shapes! Krescendo.
Y&Ts best album

"This is the first time I`ve heard this ablum on CD and it sounds killer. Black Tiger and Mean Streak were good but Earthshaker was their best blend of classic metal/hard rock with radio friendly hooks. The whole album standouts out and the ballsy power ballad "I Believe In You" predated just about every sappy hair metal ballad from the `80s. My only complaint would be that Phil Kenmores vocals are buried in the mix on "Squeeze" but still the song rocks with killer riffing from Dave Meneketti.If you wanna go back to the early `80s before hard rock got drenched in lipstick pickup this CD."
