LEATHÜRBITCH : "Into the Night"
There a few phrases where I can hear his non head register holding some potential , but over all it seems like a place holder for a yodel to come. Unlike say King Diamond , these notes are just popped off with up him staying up there for any length of time. "I"m Insane" is a cover of the Ratt song, though I don't it credited. Steven Pearcy has more grit to his voice. I do think it speaks to my point about sound vs song writing as my favorite song on this album was written by someone else. I know it's a vulgar concept, but I listen to the lyrics and put stock in them so this certainly dampens "the Search" , as those lyrics are terrible.
The last song is very middle of the road, lacking any sense of danger or aggression. So it's blah, not the worst, but doesn't grab my ear do think I would have liked these guys more when I was 12, but kinda been there done that and got the albums that do this better. If you are a 12 year old who has never heard this before then it works. I'll give this album a 7, a 6 without the Ratt cover.
