11. Rock City (Damn Yankees, 1990)

“To me this album is just OK. It’s listenable but nothing that’s going to knock your sox off or anything. I was actually a little disappointed in this when it came out. I was expecting it to be much “wilder” considering that Ted Nugent was in the band. Not near as rowdy as you would think, just a step up from pop, but still ok.”

10. Mystified (Damn Yankees, 1990)

“Being a fan of Styx, having records of Ted Nugent and Night Ranger, i thought this would be a nice combination. Ted, Tommy Shaw and Jack Blades in one band. It gives, for me at least, a nice standard hard rock album, with some influences of the bands aforementioned.”

9. Silence Is Broken (Don’t Tread, 1992)

“Silence Is Broken” are good examples of typical American rock music. In this case, they don’t sound cheesy as was the norm for some other outputs of the early nineties. The right album for a late summer barbecue evening in the garden at home. You would expect a herd of buffalo to trample your lawn.”

8. Bad Reputation (Damn Yankees, 1990)

“Damn Yankees is a blues-fused hard rocker with smooth musicianship and catchy melodies. The double vocal duty of Tommy Shaw and Jack Blades is a weak spot for me — both are adequate singers but lack the attitude needed to back up the music.”

7. Where You Goin’ Now (Don’t Tread, 1992)

“These aging rockers proving themselves a one trick pony with this one, a record more tired of you than you were of it, only Where You Goin’ Now approaching the saccharine heights of cheeseball greatness achieved by their debut.”

6. Damn Yankees (Damn Yankees, 1990)

“There’s a lot to be said for tunes that don’t quit! It’s also genuinely fun to see Tommy unleashed in a setting that allow him to rock out”

5. Don’t Tread On Me (Don’t Tread, 1992)

“Second and last album of the American super band. In the vein of his debut (perhaps better produced) with that type of song that is good to listen to but, to me, they don’t tell me too much. Simple hard rock, especially for the musicians that they are: they could have given a lot more of themselves.”

4. Coming of Age (Damn Yankees, 1990)

“here is a good bunch of hard rock cliches, but nothing special. Actually, if Coming Of Age -which is a hell of a hit single- had not been there I would have never listened to the record again.”

3. Runaway (Damn Yankees, 1990)

“This has to be the best DY song; “High Enough” is a close second. Sounds to me like this song is about a runaway girl who enters a life of prostitution, in the same vein as “Fancy” by Bobbie Gentry/Reba.”

2. Come Again (Damn Yankees, 1990)

“Come Again is my favorite 1990’s rock hit. It will take you back in time if your a classic rock fan. Buy this song for your collection.”

1. High Enough (Damn Yankees, 1990)

“Fantastic, cannot get enough of 80’s hair bands! You will not regret this purchase. Takes you back to a time where music actually made sense and was worthwhile to listen to.”
