Tygers Of Pan Tang's second album "Spellbound" (1981) sure is a more consistent effort than their debut "Wild cat". With a change in line up (adding a second guitar player by the name of John Sykes and a new singer in Jon Deverill), the Tygers were on their way towards the top in the heavy metal league back in the early 1980's. The material on "Spellbound" is mostly very good, and not as raw as it was on the previous album. There are indeed some classic metal tunes in this collection. Just listen to songs such as "Gangland", "Take it", and "Hellbound" and you'll hear the essence of the genre New Wave of British Heavy Metal. Tygers shows us a more laid back side and includes a ballad in "Mirror". And when it comes to "The story so far" & "Don't stop by" you can hear the growing seed to songs included on following albums like "The cage" and "The wreck-age". A lot of people claim that "Spellbound" is the band's finest album up to date but I strongly believe that "Crazy nights" from the same year is just as good, if not even better!
Tygers Of Pan Tang never made it big like some of their peers (for example Iron Maiden and Def Leppard). Maybe it had something to do with bad managing because the Tygers surely were on their way to stardom in the early 1980's. Anyway, over the years Tygers changed personnel and finally broke up. Singer Jon Deverill took a shot at an acting career, guitar player Rob Weir took a job for the local government, bass player Rocky became a music lawyer, and drummer Brian continued playing the drums in smaller scale. The only one of the line up who really made it big is guitarist John Sykes, who first joined Thin Lizzy ("Thunder and lightning") and then teamed up with Whitesnake's David Covedale to record their world wide success album "1987". After that Sykes formed Blue Murder (together with Carmine Appice and Tony Franklin), released a couple of solo albums, and then reformed Thin Lizzy.

This is my favourite album by the tyger's, For myself the change in the band line up, From the change of the gruff voice of Jess Cox to the harmonic voice of John Deverill from Persian Risk and also added a secound guitarist to the band as in John Sykes who was making his debut album, Who went onto join, Thin Lizzy, Whitesnake and Blue murder.
This British band was in a bunch of band's, Which included the likes of Iron maiden, Saxon, Judas priest, Anglewhich, Samson and a host of other's who were givin' the title "The new wave off British heavy metal".
The album is truely from the hard 'n' heavy era off Heavy Metal.
The hard hittin' riff's of Gangland, Hellbound & Tyger bay to the mellow of Mirror,Mirror. one of the leading band's in their day, A must for all metal head's, If this album does not get you headbanging then your listening to the wrong music.

Format: Audio CD
Tygers of Pan Tang was one of the more noteworthy (and yet highly underappreciated) acts from the legendary New Wave of British Heavy Metal (NWOBHM) scene. With their hard charging, melodic style, Tygers of Pan Tang leaned more towards the Diamond Head end of the NWOBHM spectrum. In today's music scene, they probably wouldn't qualify as a "metal" band, but at the time they were a vital part of a scene that helped define the heavy metal sound.

1981's Spellbound was the band's second album, and it marked both big changes and big improvements. Original vocalist Jess Cox was replaced by ex-Persian Risk Frontman Brian Deverill, and the band added a second lead guitarist, an unknown kid named John Sykes. To say that Sykes, who would go on to greater fame with Thin Lizzy, Blue Murder and Whitesnake, made an impact is a major understatement. Deverill's more refined and melodic vocals also helped the band move beyond their rough n' ready hard rock sound in a more polished, more metal direction. The aggression and energy is still there, but the songwriting and performances are just that much better than they were on Wild Cat. This album has a lot of the band's best songs, including "Gangland," "Hellbound," "Silver and Gold" and "Tyger Bay."

All of the first four Tygers of Pan Tang discs are great, but Spellbound remains the best of the bunch. If you're putting together a list of the ten essential NWOBHM albums, Spellbound really deserves a spot. Not only is it a must-have for any serious NWOBHM collector, it's also well worth checking out for anyone who is into the `80s hard rock and heavy metal sound.

Their sophomore effort is their best album for sure, and it is a benchmark NWOBHM album. Unfortunately, the band fell into the usual trap: to change their sound due to record company pressure, releasing obnoxious albuns like "The Cage" and the album recorded in the speed of light, "Crazy Nights".
