Almost up to Van Halen Standards

"This CD is criminally underrated!!
It starts off really rockin' with "Shaka Doobie" and "Let Sally Drive". "Deeper Kind of Love" and "A Little Bit More" are great softer songs.
"Tropic of Capricorn" is my favorite song on this CD though. "Tropic of Capricorn" is similar to "Cabo Wabo" or "Take Me Back (DejaVu)" from the Van Halen era.
For less than $10, this CD is a STEAL! If you like Sammy's old stuff or Van Halen, this Ten-13 will not dissapoint."
Two great songs

"I can always find a couple songs on each of Sammy's albums that I listen to over and over. For me, the songs Deeper Kinda Love and A Little Bit More are the two standout tracks from this album.
The next best song is Ten 13. Slade fans out there will recognize this song as virtually identical to the Slade song Ready To Explode (Part II The Grid) from their 1984 album KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF MY POWER SUPPLY.
As for the rest of the album, it's good, if for nothing else than because of Sammy's always-present enthusiasm and delivery, but the songs just seem to lack the killer hooks.
Overall a good rocking album, but not as consistent as his other albums in the 1997-2002 period."
