I listened to 'Earthshaker' today for the first time in a few years and it is easily (IMHO, of course) Y&T's finest hour.

The songs are fantastic from the first note to the last and, even though the band didn't think so, I think the production is excellent. Everything is clear, free of cloying mid to late 80's syrup, and loud!

At the time it sounded amazing, and it still sounds fresh.....and hungry. The band still produced good albums [for a few years, anyway] but that hunger was gone and they got lazy and 'flabby'. There's no filler here.

I may be a little biased, even though I love almost everything the band did up to 'Ten', but Earthshaker is as good as straight up hard rock gets. This is over 30 years old and is one of those timeless albums that never sound dated.
