2008 digitally remastered edition of the third album by this San Francisco Hard Rock/Metal band under their Y&T moniker (they were previously known as Yesterday & Today). Originally released in 1983, Mean Streak was the last of a three album body blow that saw Y&T elevated to the status of Metal royalty. This was the last time the band was to sound so uncompromising. This was, however, a very fitting way to end those heard rocking days. Krescendo.
The last great Y&T album

"Man I remember getting pumped up for this release. With Black Tiger turning me and all my friends into Y&T freaks we went and saw them perform at Marriots Great America in the summer of `83 where they played Hang Em High and Straight Thru The Heart before the albums release. It just so happened those two tunes turned out to be my favorites on the album. Mean Streak was a little bit more radio friendly in spots but still kept the classic Y&T vibe. The title cut is killer and the lesser known tunes like Take You to The Limit,Breaking Away and Lonley Side of Town always stood out for me. The only tune I have to be in the mood for is Down N Dirty which would have probably fit better on Y&Ts next release In Rock We Trust. Mean Streak along with Earthshaker and Black Tiger are a must if you wanna get into the band or have just started getting their music on CD. They would release more good albums over the years but none matched those three."

"Y&T is simply the most underrated rock band in history! Check out the artwork on the cover, and you know Mean Streak will not disappoint. I can listen to it Straight Thru (The Heart) over and over again, but tracks #6 and #9 (Hang 'Em High, Down And Dirty) are so good you must listen to them full blast on a system with AT LEAST 100 watts per channel and double 12's, 15's preferred. The neighbors will love you!"
