Album of the Day
Lean Into It
Los Angeles hard rock quartet Mr. Big made it big with their second album, LEAN INTO IT. Produced by Kevin Elson, the Atlantic collection soared up the charts on the strength of hit singles “Just Take My Heart” and “To Be With You,” which began a three week run at No.1 on this day in 1992. There's plenty of the instrumental virtuosity heard on Mr. Big's debut (guitarist Paul Gilbert and bassist Billy Sheehan get off some amazing riffs here) but with a stronger emphasis on songwriting – these 11 tracks are both catchy and diverse. Don't let the train-crash cover fool you: LEAN INTO IT is the work of a band on track and firing on all cylinders.
