Album Review

Although the term "supergroup" doesn't quite apply to the Damn Yankees, they did manage to rekindle the spirit of 1970s (and '80s) rock with each of their talents, at least to some extent. Damn Yankees took the unblemished, radio rock ballad "High Enough" to its deserving number three spot on the singles chart, with its power stemming from the oily melody and the made-to-order guitar playing of Ted Nugent. Both Tommy Shaw and Night Ranger's Jack Blades give "High Enough" an even quantity of lushness and might, which helped the album itself climb to number 13 and gain platinum status. "Coming of Age" is the album's second-best track, which has the band rocking out without going over the edge and sounding too contrived. The rest of the album finds the group reliving their glory days, which is to be expected, and tracks like "Runaway" and "Come Again" come through as avid little rockers. Only "Piledriver" and "Rock City" sound silly and pushed, most likely influenced by Nugent himself. As the 1990s approached, the slick sound of guitar rock may have been dwindling, but Damn Yankees do a fine job at keeping it alive at least for a little while. By the time their next album was released, the decade had no room for their brand of arena rock, which sounded more passé than ever before, despite a decent sounding single which kicked it off.

Customer Reviews

Damn Yankees

I have never done this before,but the Damn Yankees made rock when it was no longer popular, and they as a group made good music.So if you the like the music,then buy the album .It is well worth it.

Go down memory lane.....

Don't dismiss it because you have a luring hate for Ted, or of its decreased popularity. Together they were fabulous, only wish there was more of their music today.

Top notch

I just hate it when ppl put down music to which they have no knowledge of its taste.simply put if your a fan of good hard rock this is a great collection.good performances all the way won't find this kinda rock today which is really a shame.around this time bands had the talent to perform and write their owns much musical talent back then which leads me to say when are we going to see the next batch of hard rock groups to carry the torch?one last thing to those who said Ted N can't play just listen to these solo's on the cd.


Formed: 1989

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '80s, '90s

For a brief time in the early '90s, the supergroup Damn Yankees enjoyed a considerable amount of success on the arena rock circuit. Comprised of guitarist Ted Nugent, Styx's Tommy Shaw, Night Ranger's Jack Blades, and drummer Michael Cartellone, Damn Yankees arrived during the final moments of pop-metal's heyday, and their music didn't stray from that radio-friendly format at all. The group's self-titled debut album spawned several hits in 1990, including the Top Ten power ballad "High Enough" and...
