A Piece of Hair Metal History
on March 2, 2009
A great album by a band that emerged late on the hair-metal scene. A hair-metal group to the "T", Steelheart struck gold with their song "I'll Never Let You Go". That song, the fourth track on this album, still sounds as spectacular as it did the first time I heard it in the early '90's, sitting on the hood of my friends Olds 442 at the local pizza shop.
As with all great hair-metal bands, a vocalist with an insane vocal range was a key part of the equation, and Mike Matijevic DEFINATELY has the most awesome vocal range of any hair-metal lead singer of the period!
Don't get me wrong, the album's good, with the rest of the songs well put together and executed. I guess I was just feeling a bit nostalgic lately and that lead to this purchase more than anything. If you are gonzo for late 1980's hair-metal, you're sure to love this offering from Steelheart. As for me, it was a CD I felt like adding to my collection mainly for one song. Hey, at the price it's offered at, it still ain't too bad.
