Y&T are one of my faves, so I'm very much looking forward to hearing what Dave and the guys come up with.

One of my most anticipated 2010 releases fo' sho'! :headbanger:

They've been working on this off and on all year and I for one am looking forward to it.

Y&T are one of my fav bands but I just hope it can live up to some of the old stuff.

Sometimes Frontiers takes all the balls out of good rock band and that worries me somewhat.

Really? I can't say I really agree with that. But who am I to say for certain either way. :)

 

Looking forward to this very much. The last few albums have really done very little for me (aside from the unreleased material) so it'll be interesting to see if they can release another gem.

The last few Y&T albums have been great IMO. Of course we're talking about the Unearthed discs which had some great unreleased gems and the last studio album 'Endangered Species'. The one before that 'Musically Incorrect' was great musically but the songs were way to long and there wasn't many great songs like there was on the releases from 1981-1990(Earthshaker - Ten).

 

As far as Frontiers goes, I love the label and what they've done for Melodic Hard Rock but Primal Fear was a great Metal band before sigining with this label and I worry that Y&T might not rock as hard as they would but maybe I'll be wrong. I sure hope I'm wrong.

Yeah, the 'Unearthed' discs were great. I really wasn't into either 'Endangered species' or 'Musically incorrect'. I remember a few cool songs like 'Sail away' and 'Cold day in hell' but they may possibly be all I really liked from both discs. I really hope for something better than those two this time round. :)

 

As for Primal Fear, don't know anything about them but they were a heavy metal band... I don't think Y&T really have any concern to be worried about de-balling. They're no more or less heavy than the majority of Frontiers bands at the best of times. :)

Where we differ is you're surely hoping that they return to the sound of Contagious where I hope that they rock like they did back in the days of Earshaker, Black Tiger and Meanstreak. Although I would be happy with almost anything this band does since Dave and Phil are great songwriters IMO.

My favorite band is coming back, what a great new.

Like many other people I hope they will sound hard rock aor like in 84-90s era.

The fact they signed with frontiers could mean this, but I believe that the Italian label leave up to the bands how to sound.

The unearthed was both good.

Endangered and musically was sure not as good as ten and contagious.

Whathever long live to Y&T .

Almost correct there, cousin. Like Crazynights, if it sounds like anything from 1984-1990 I'll be happy - not just 1987. ;)

    • His music videos are always good: either very silly, or very sexy. So I've got this queued up on the PC. Looking forward to it. 
    • New single "The Animal" dropped today, not bad at all:    
    • I dig the new tune!  Honestly, might be my favorite yet from these guys. I like that this kind of gets away from the  Bon Jovi Country vibe they sometimes had on the debut.  For me, this has a fresh, big sound to it.   Will have the new one on my radar.
    • 3rd single... Love It   
    • New video for 'Dance'.    
    • Vandenberg - Sin Chicago - The Chicago Story (2 CD) Megadeth - So Far, So Good, So What? (Expanded) The Allman Betts Band - Down to the River Mike Oldfield - Five Miles Out (Remaster) Buckingham & McVie - S/T Michael Hutchence - S/T Roxy Music - Stranded (Remaster) Echo & the Bunnymen - Reverberation  Echo & the Bunnymen - Evergreen (Expanded)
    • After releasing two albums with AOR/Melodic Rock band Streets, ”1st” (1983) and ”Crimes In Mind” (1985), lead singer and keyboardist Steve Walsh returned to Kansas, to revive the band along with original members Phil Ehart (drums) and Rich Williams (Guitar). Furthermore, the lineup was completed by the addition of bassist Billy Greer (from Streets) and young, promising, former Dixie Dregs guitar man Steve Morse, who also contributed with composing skills and backing vocals. Eventually, the group’s ”Power” album was released in November of 1986, rather much to the vintage Kansas and Prog Rock purists dismissal, as I recall it. The heavier sound/direction and absence of violinist Robby Steinhardt, songwriter/keyboardist/guitarist Kerry Livgren and bassist Dave Hope were all contributing factors to the disapproval, it seems. However, mentioned ”Power” should perhaps instead be judged on its own merits, as it is what it is. Put out in a time when commercial Melodic Hardrock was very much in fashion, with FM rock radio and MTV as ever the important ingredients of daily life. In the end, the album actually landed at a respectable No. 35 on the Billboard chart, while the single/ballad ”All I Wanted” eventually rose to an even more impressive No. 19.

    • They have a real knack for writing (and producing!) songs that could be featured in '80s coming of age films and I mean that in the most complimentary way possible. Really putting the retro in retrowave
