This self-titled album is the fifth one since Tygers of Pan Tang got back into the game some 15 years ago. There's really nothing new here for those who have heard the band's previous material. The band's proven recipe, a blend of Heavy Metal and Hard Rock, is alive and well and, other than sometimes sounding a little too commercial, the songs offered here are pretty cool upbeat metal, sometimes with a huge party vibe that really screams "80s good times", a style that seemed much more popular back then than it is nowadays, with only a few bands giving it a real go and even fewer pulling it off without sounding ridiculous.

Bottom line, this is what you would expect from these guys: Melodic, pitch-perfect vocals, the occasional speedy Heavy Metal and catchy guitars, a healthy dose of "commercial" to appeal more to the masses, and party all night long. I don't think this will win over those who didn't like them before, but fans of the band will definitely find something to like here.
