5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome \m/,
This review is from: Feel The Steel (Vinyl) (LP Record)If you know Steel Panther, you already know they absolutely freakin' rock! as does this album. For those of you that don't know them; buy this album. They really bring back the 80's glam rock and added a twist. The purple vinyl is a really nice touch as well. A digital download voucher came with the lp (really cool 'cause it's real kind of inconvenient to play an lp while jogging or in the car). Feel the steel baby!!!!!! \m/ rock on!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Comedic and technical genius,
This review is from: Feel The Steel (Audio CD)For years, I had heard rumours about the greatness that is Steel Panther (formerly known as "Metal Skool"), but had yet to experience it. At last, the time has come, and I have nothing but love for this CD.
Sure, the CD cover looks like something right out of 1985, but don't let that fool you into thinking this would be of such timely ilk. Though the members of Steel Panther camp it up, the reality of what is underneath are four highly skilled musicians that know the glam/hard rock genre inside out... and they have a lot of fun with it. It takes serious talent to mock a genre while appearing genuine, not to mention their comedic handling of cliched glam rock lyrics. Even if you weren't a fan of 80's glam rock, the songs on this CD are as infectuous as their subject matter.
If 80's rock is a guilty pleasure for you, this CD would be a great addition to your collection. Even if you aren't or never were a fan of such music, the humour on this CD alone will be enough to sway you. Go on, have a listen to the track "Community Property" and try not to laugh. I dare you!

5.0 out of 5 stars Master Piece,
This review is from: Feel The Steel (Audio CD)This is an amazing album. Hilarious and extremely catchy. Once you hear these songs they will never leave your head. I listen to this album over and over and I laugh and sing along.
It is a shame that more bands can't be as great as SteeL PantheR. Highly Recommended....

This review is from: Feel The Steel (Vinyl) (LP Record)Fun. Funny. Nostalgic. Immature. Crass. AWESOME! And vinyl?! Come on! Perfect!!! Love that old school faint scratchy recorded 80s glam rock sound. I even bought the CD as well so I could preserve my vinyl even longer.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Death To All But Metal Indeed",
This review is from: Feel The Steel (Audio CD)When I first heard of this band I didn't know what to expect, a friend of mine told me to check this band out so I did. And I was surprised, these guys are as 80s glam as it gets and just as good as some of the bands of that era. So when the first album "Feel the Steel" was released I had to buy it. These guys don't take themselves too seriously and have a good sense of humour, if you don't stop reading and leave this page right now! "Feel the Steel" is full of sex, and references to it, after hearing this album you'll come to the conclusion it's all they do and want in their lives, no message really except metal rules. In fact in the first song Death to All But Metal they mention "Kill Madonna too and then f*** her in the b***". Even their ballads talk about sex, Community Property they say: "My heart belongs to you but co** is community property". So I'm warning you right away if you don't want to hear any of this don't read any further. That said their songs are really good and catchy, but dirty as well.
The opener Death to All But Metal is an indication of what this album is, kick-a** metal, it's pretty much telling everyone what they think of some celebrities and about how metal is great, this is the first song I heard of the band as I watched the video for it. As good as an opener gets. Asian Hooker starts with Asian music and then this heavy riff comes in, catchy, funny and heavy is what this song is all about one of my favourite songs here. It's hilarious lines such as "Feels like I'm being punched in the nuts by a dude who knows tai-chi". Community Property is a ballad and a good one at that, it's one of the songs I listen to the most on FTS, a beautiful song, in a way. Eyes of The Panther is another great songs, pure 80s style. Far Girl (That She Blows) is another ballad; I think the title of this one says it all. Eatin' Ain't Cheatin' is the best song of the album in my opinion, catchy as hell and it's a pure 80s and has a great riff. Party All Day (F*** All Nite)'s beginning sounds like "Livin'On a Prayer" by Bon Jovi and the rest sounds like well, Bon Jovi! Catchy song again. The title obviously ripped off KISS's "Rock and Roll All Nite". Turn Out The Lights is another good song, it doesn't stand out but it's a good good song. Stripper Girl is a ballad about-you guessed it! A stripper girl! It sounds a little weird to do so but It's really good. The Shocker is a rocker, other songs get the attention here but don't underestimate this one. The album closes with Girl From Oklahoma, a great acoustic song it's a good closer and there are interesting lyrics.
The UK version of the album was released earlier than in America and it features two bonus songs not available on the American version. Those songs are Hell's On Fire and Big B**bs, if you like the album check out these songs they are just as good as the rest of the album.
This is not a joke Steel Panther were around in the 1980s they nearly had a record contract and then everything failed. It's interesting how twenty years later they release their first album. It's amazing how the album has that big old 80s sound and I was surprised at how good it captured the hair metal era, now. They never did much beyond clubs and actually they still play 3 nights a week in clubs in LA but it's a good band. The band had a few name changes, like Metal Skool among others. If you're not a fan of this kind of music, don't buy it and don't listen to it that's it. If you do like the genre this is something to hear. The only thing is that Steel Panther focuses too much on doing it, it doesn't harm the music really but they seem to have this one topic only, they do great things with it but one might get annoyed after a while. I really like "Feel the Steel", it's a great album and it has some great songs I think I'll enjoy for a good while to come. Not exactly 5 stars but rather a very solid 4, check it out.
