Ultimate Collection

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Y&T wasn't the most popular metal band, but they were better than a lot of their ilk, especially in the early '80s. Their biggest failing was that they came along a little bit too early to take advantage of the boom years of the '80s, when metal albums were flying out the stores and topping the charts.

Y&T wasn't the most popular metal band, but they were better than a lot of their ilk, especially in the early '80s. Their biggest failing was that they came along a little bit too early to take advantage of the boom years of the '80s, when metal albums were flying out the stores and topping the charts.

Occasionally, they sounded a little generic, but in a good sense -- they played by metal's formulas and delivered satisfyingly. Hip-O's Ultimate Collection proves this by rounding up 17 tracks including two live cuts that hit nearly all the fan favorites and metal anthems, plus their lone hit, 1985's "Summertime Girls." It's the definitive word on a good band that would have been bigger if they had better timing.
