CD Reviews

Classic Hard Rock With Blazing Lead Guitar
mbfthrasher | Renton, Washington United States | 09/26/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a fantastic hard rock CD. Everyone plays their instruments extremely well. The drumming is great! And Dave in my opinion never got his due as a lead guitarist - there is blazing lead guitar on this, as good as most any in the 70's. If you like 70's (or any) guitar driven hard rock, you cannot go wrong with this - it rocks HARD. And Dave sings great also, he's as good a guitar player/singer as Mark Farner or Frank Marino were. This is a closet classic hard rock offering, I promise."
It's good old rock!

"Y&T may not be the flavour of the month! Their earlier stuff reminds of a time when music was more than a beautiful face and a sexy video for the MTV audience... On this album there are really great songs that have been kinda lost in time. The album starts off with the title track which is representative for the whole record although it's far from the album's highlights. The second tune "Pleasure in my heart" (probably one of their best song ever) begins with a riff that comes close to Van Halen's "Little dreamer", and shows that Y&T have the ability to write melodic tunes without ending up in the "power-rock-anthem-style". Then comes "Road" (kind of Blackfoot-like) with a clear rock 'n' roll approach. The verse is great but when the refrain comes along I think the guys should have been a little less into sound effects. Track number four is "Nasty Sadie", a typical rock song from the seventies that has connections to Kiss as well as to Whitesnake. "Dreams of Egypt" is a song you easily can imagine Ronnie James Dio singing, since it has the vocal structure typical for Dio. Next up is "Tried to show you" (one of the albums best songs) which has both the drive and the melody that is so rare today. "I'm lost" is one of the faster tracks with great vocal arrangement. The album closes with "Stargazer", a song that is slightly different from the rest. Sometimes it makes me think of Bowie's earlier stuff. If you like rock from the seventies I don't think you'll be disappointed, and these guys can really play and sing. I wouldn't be surprised if you wanna be a drummer after listen to the way Haze handles the drums. Just don't let the album cover fool you - it's not "saturday night fever"!!"
Better than a lot of later releases from y and t

"This didn't blaze up the charts at the time but it doesn't keep it from being one of their best cd's. It is a must have if you like y and t. Definitely the best songs on here are On the Road, Dreams of Egypt and Nasty Sadie but all of the tracks are worthy on ths cd. It does rival their better cd's earthshaker, black tiger and in rock we trust. Several songs on this cd could have been on the best of cd easily."
