Y&T - Black Tiger (1982)(Remaster 2005)

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

2005 digitally remastered edition of the second album by this San Francisco Hard Rock/Metal band under their Y&T moniker (they were previously known as Yesterday & Today). Originally released in 1982, Black Tiger was the album with which San Francisco rockers Y&T followed their astonishing Earthshaker opus and, though not quite in the same class as its predecessor, the album has much to recommend it. Tracks like 'Open Fire' and the barnstorming 'Forever' remain crowd pleasers to this day. Krescendo.

"Black tiger" from 1982 is (together with the following "Mean streak") Y&T's finest effort. After an instrumental tune/intro "From the moon" the action really begin, and "Open fire" is a typical up tempo song by Y&T, similar to "Mean streak". The material is rather diverse and there's lighter and melodic tunes like "Don't wanna lose" (a real gem!) as well as fast rockers in the shape of "Black tiger". The bass driven "Barroom boogie" gives the album character and the captivating fan favourite "Forever" gives an example of a classic Y&T formula used on previous as well as following songs. "Hell or high water" shows Y&T's ability to be slow but still groovy and heavy without ending up like Dio on "Strange highway". The closing "Winds of change" is a ballad and `tho I'm not crazy about Y&T's ballads in general it's quite good. Highly recommended!"
