Editorial Reviews

Product Description

As the title indicates, Facemelter--the anticipated new recording from Y&T is a hard rockin', song-oriented album that lives up to its name: it captures the band's raw energy and tightness that they've become known for. Featuring heavy grooves, powerful guitars, and strong melodies, the band shows their versatility, delivering a range of high-energy rockers, mid-tempo head-bangers, modern rock grooves, majestic ballads, and signature Y&T rock anthems. To mark the return, the band engaged John Taylor Dismukes--the same artist who designed covers for Y&T's classic albums Mean Streak, Black Tiger, and In Rock We Trust--to create the amazing art of Facemelter. Face-melting is a term that has been with Y&T since the mid-'70s, when a rabid fan ran backstage and told the band--you melted my face--which inspired the group's first publishing company: Facemelting Music. If you haven't yet taken Y&T's new album for a ride, grab your leathers, strap yourself in, and prepare to have your face melted.

Review

'Facemelter' certainly has the potential to leave a lasting imprint on the ever more illustrious history of this most extraordinary of bands. ...I can't stop playing the damn thing! --Dave Cockett, Powerplay Magazine, June 2010

…so much balls and soul that it's hard to imagine any self-respecting fan of loud rock 'n' roll resisting their charms. --Classic Rock Magazine, July 2010

Customer Reviews

Let me say this is a very good album.
JB
The band's sound on this album is straight-up classic-style hard rock, but there are some modern rock elements to their sound on here as well.
Taylor T. Carlson
Hoping to get to see them sometime live because I hear they put on a heck of a show!

With a great deal of style and music ability the boys of Y&T have written performed and produced what should be a critically acclaimed work of art. taking on many topics from women to tossing off and cyber trolers who bash the band on their own website Meniketti Kennimore and Nyman have written a classic rock album that no serious fan can live without. The leads are great the melodies are great the lyrics are edgy this is simply the best work Y&T has done since their best selling in rock we trust cd download it today and don't forget the bonus tracks. Guitar god Dave Meniketti has shown the band still has it in their 37th year dont pass this one buy

been a fan of y&t since the early days - -- hard to compare this to the old classics - in rock we trust / black tiger / etc those are easily 5 star efforts - - - -the energy isnt what it used to but the guys arent 20 either...

after the first 2 or 3 listens i started to get a little more used to the new sound - dont get me wrong there is talent in the band and the production is pretty good too...

all in all i like the album but miss the zest the band had in the early days but still a solid effort . . . worth a listen - - -

BTW - the solo works by Meneketti are much better than this album and worth a try by those interested in hot blues / rock - - -some of the material there is almost on par with the Gary Moore Blues CD's which isnt an easy feat by any stretch

Y&T's new album is smoking! I agree with most of what everyone
said that this is real rock & roll and it's ashame more people
don't know what a great band this is! I flew from New Orleans
to LA & Chicago to see them 3x & it was worth it! This album
shows Menketti is one of the most overlooked vocalist/guitarist
ever in rock history! Songs like Shine On, I want your money &
Gonna Go Blind are Y&T classics but the entire album rocks!
Phil Kennemore continues to write great songs as always &
is also overlooked songwriter/bassist! Give credit to the
guitarist and drummer who have been with band for while &
fit in like the original members & keep the Y&T sound. Long
Live Rock & Roll!!! I hope they keep rocking until...forever!

I am not a "long time" Y&T fan. I only discovered them maybe 2 years back. But as I kept acquiring more and more Y&T material they kept rising up my list of favorites and today I'd probably put them at the top. From "Earthshaker" to "Ten" I love it all. Awesome vocals, awesome guitar work, great catchy melodic songs. What's not to like? Why do more people not know about this band?

When I found out a new CD was released I couldn't not wait to hear it. And they sure deliver the goods. Dave's vocals to me sound a good as ever and the guitar playing - need I say more. Just incredible. The guitar work on "If You Want Me" alone is worth the price of admission. One of my favorite Y&T tracks ever. No bad songs on this disc.

I had the chance to see Y&T live at the Hard Rock Cafe in Pittsburgh this summer. I have been to many shows - Van Halen, Ted Nugent, Kiss, Iron Maiden, etc. - but this was one of the best. They played for over 2.5 hours, took requests from the audience, signed autographs. Just kicked ass. See this band live!

I think my review will resonate with others who listened to the new album by Y&T. I've been a fan of this band since their first record came out back in '76. Crisp, tight, melodic hard rock of Y&T catches you from the first riff and you will never get enough of it.
Almost every record that Y&T put together is not just a solid hard rock statement, but also has a big heart behind each song. Every fan knows "I Believe In You", "Rescue Me", etc.
"Facemelter" is a very mature album that has a classic polished sound, tight base+drums combo, Dave's trademark lyrics and crafty compositions. It's a record that gets under your skin deeper and deeper the more you listen to it.
I highly recommend "Facemelter" to any rock music fan. If it is your first Y&T experience, guarateed, you will be hooked on to it for life.

I started listening to Y&t when they were Yesterday & today way back in 1977.Like most people my favorite cd`s were black tiger,mean streak & earthshaker.I also liked there first two Yesterday and today cds.But there last several disc`s were not even close to the early 80`s stuff so i lost interest in the band.I saw the cover of the new cd and the name caught my interest so i listened to the sound clips.Wow,what a great surprise.THIS CD ROCKS FROM START TO FINISH.Do you remember how you use to feel when you got a great rockin disc back in the 80`s and there would be alot of solo`s,and you would find yourself getting goosebumps.Well this is the best cd Y&T has put out since 1983.Give it a chance,if you liked early Y&T,you will love it.

kiss set list....stage show
Love the current lineup. I think they are still awesome and they sound great. Love the new stage setup too. Would love to have Eric do more with fire. Maybe drumsticks? And video screens on the front of drums would be pretty cool. Maybe fire out of the cymbals as he crashes down on them. ... Read More
