Review: Damn Yankees – Coming of Age (Rock)

This review covers the hard rock track Damn Yankees – Coming of Age.

This track was released in 1990 on a self titled album.

The track starts off with a guitar with a slight delay effect. The drum kit then comes in along with the vocals. Some backup vocals gradually join in. After this, the track becomes more full.

After a guitar shred, the track goes into the main chorus. This section is capped off with a brief instrumental section. This leads into the next verse.

The track then goes into the main chorus after a few kicks on the drum kit. After this, there is a mixture of an instrumental section and some general vocals popping in every so often. From there, a guitar solo takes over. An additional round with the main chorus comes in. This is followed by a more or less instrumental section. After that, the track fades out.

For me, nothing sticks out as being particularly bad in this track. The track has some decent flow and decent sound. The mastering is decent. Even the lyrics aren’t that bad.

What I’m not so sure about is the fact that there’s nothing that makes this a particularly amazing track. one question I like to ask is if there is any sort of distinct sound that makes this track a great one. For me, I can’t really think of anything in particular.

Generally speaking this is a track that does no wrong. The mastering, vocals, lyrics, and overall sound works nicely. On the down side, this is one of those tracks that does nothing particularly amazing either. It has a general sound to it that makes it passable, but nothing in here makes it memorable necessarily. A decent track, but that’s about it.
