Y & T - Facemelter
This album has been getting a lot of play lately (in my car). The lyrics are standout on this release. Well writen pop metal songs with some excellent guitar playing. Vocals make it all work. Sounds like this album could have come out in 1987. I suppose the nostalgia factor is high on this one for me, but I'm enjoying this album more and more with each listen. Y&T was a way rockin' band in the early 80's. Somewhere they took a wrong turn. This album is closer to their good stuff than their bad stuff. Cheese factor is high when you start paying attention to the lyrics, but it's good to know they're not faking it.
