Using a process developed by JVC and Universal Music Japan discovered through the joint companies' research into LCD display manufacturing SHM-CDs feature improved transparency on the data side of the disc allowing for more accurate reading of CD data by the CD player laser head. SHM-CD format CDs are fully compatible with standard CD players.
It's still Y&T, and it still rocks!

"I realize that Y&T appropriately titled 10th album - 1990's Ten - is not considered one of the band's best releases. Along with their 1986 album Contagious, Ten tends to be dismissed as part of Y&T's hair metal phase, and that's unfortunate given just how good the album really is.
Ten may have some hair metal trappings (beyond the band's look, there is an unmistakable hair metal production), but it's still pretty close to Y&T's classic melodic rock sound. Don't Be Afraid of the Dark is one of my absolute favorite Y&T songs, and Hard Times, City, Come in From the Rain, She's Gone and Ten Lovers are vintage Y&T rockers. There are some filler tracks, but they're more than offset by the album's better songs.
It's not a perfect album by any means, but it's still a good Y&T album and one that shouldn't be dismissed lightly.
PS - I'd love to have a remastered version of this album (and Contagious too, while we're at it) to go along with the other great reissues the band has released lately.
