Earthshaker were one of a handful of Japanese hard/melodic rock band formed in 1978 in Tokyo. Their earlier music was also influenced by heavy metal, but the band steered toward a poppier sound on later albums and dropped from worldwide view, preferring to record and tour in their home country. After a successful run, they broke up in 1994, but returned five years later and are still going strong today.
1981's Earthshaker is the only unanimous moment of Y&T's lengthy career. The only studio album that came close to capturing the power and energy of the San Francisco quartet's legendary concerts onto disc, the band's third . was their first for new label A&M, and the first to see their original moniker Yesterday & Today shortened to its better-known incarnation . And Y&T save the best for last, climaxing with their signature power ballad, the dramatic "I Believe in You" - easily one of the decade's best examples of the style, bar none.
