One of their BEST, regardless of what others say!
on January 16, 2007
Having been a Y&T fan since 1981, like many of you, I saw the progression from the hard rock metal sound of the first 4 A&M releases to a more polished and commercial sound, as found on Contagious. Regardless of the stylistic change found on this cd, this is one seriously great disc! As good as the the first 4 Y&T releases are, I am glad they shifted gears a bit. Who wants a band to make the same album several times (not that ANY of their albums sound the same)? Not me!
There are some high class rock songs (Fight For Your Life, Armed & Dangerous, Eyes Of A Stranger....actually, I really like the entire cd, with the exception of 'The Kid Goes Crazy'). The production is really good, the band are tight, Dave's voice and guitar playing are in amazing form (check out the solos on 'Fight', 'A&D', 'Eyes' and the AMAZINGLY soulful instrumental 'I'll Cry'...it does not get much better than this!), Jimmy's drumming is great, the songs are excellent. What more can you ask for? Do yourself a favor and check this cd out.
