4.0 out of 5 stars Better than the first one, March 24, 2008
This review is from: Hear (Audio CD)
New Jersey rockers Trixter were a little older (I think they all hit the legal drinking age), and a little wiser when their second album - 1992's Hear - was released. I have to say I wasn't terribly impressed with their self-titled debut album, but the band definitely made some improvements this time around.

Hear is still a pretty basic "by the numbers" pop metal album, but it's a pretty good one too. The songs are more melodic, the production is better, and the musicianship is tighter. The lyrics aren't any smarter ("Come on baby, get on top of my rockin' horse"), but this is hair metal after all. At the very least it's on par with what bands like Slaughter, Firehouse, Danger Danger, Warrant, and Steelheart were releasing at the time.

Trixter would go on to issue a covers album before being washed away in the alternative rock wave of the early 90's. As much as I enjoy this kind of music, it's not hard to understand how a band like Trixter didn't have the kind of staying power to weather out that particular storm.
