30th Anniversary of the American Rock Superband’s most popular album Lean Into It.
First released in 1991, Lean into It, is the second studio album by the American rock supergroup, consisting of Paul Gilbert, Eric Martin, Billy Sheehan and Pat Torpey, Mr. Big. This is the band’s breakthrough album – Lean into It peaked at number 15 on the Billboard 200 charts, while the single ‘To Be with You’ became the band’s first and only song to hit number 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.
The follow-up single, ‘Just Take My Heart’, was a Top-20 hit, peaking at number 16 on the Billboard Hot 100.The million-selling album also contains the popular tracks ‘Daddy, Brother, Lover, Little Boy’,’Alive and Kickin’ and ‘Green Tinted Sixties Man’. Lean Into It shows that Mr. Big could also strip away all the flash and 7-minute solos and simply create well-written songs with rhythm, groove and good melodies, making the band one of the iconic new wave of progressive ‘musician’s bands’ who could play mind-blowing complicated riffs on their instruments at lightning speeds.
This is one of the ever-green albums of 80’s style hair band rock that transcends the years and 2021 is the 30th anniversary of the release. evoXS is remastering the album using hi-resolution digital transfers from the original analogue master tapes.
On this 30th Anniversary Edition, we get three extra tracks – early versions of “Alive And Kickin'” and “Green Tinted Sixties Mind,” which are sure to please fans plus, of all things, an enjoyable reggae version of “To Be With You,” which works far better than you might think. All in all, Lean Into It is well worth revisiting or discovering for the first time. It sounds like early 90s rock, certainly; the album’s sound pins it down squarely to a particular place and time. In the long run, however, that can only be a strong point, and the quality and depth of the music is nothing if not considerable.
