...We Need Pantera! | Reviewer: Chris A. Jimenez | 9/5/13
Four kids fond of "hard rock" and "heavy metal" (Van Halen, Judas Priest, Scorpions and Mötley Crüe specially) founded a band which, a few years later, was transformed in a legend in the "metal" world.
But, in 1.983, they were more admirers than artists. In this first work can be detected their veneration for the "hair/glam metal" of that era; their style, their clothes and their method to play the music show it unquestionably: the funny "Latest Lover", "Tell me If you Want It" and "Nothin' On but the Radio"; the harder "Metal Magic", the "ac/dcian" "Rock Out" and "Widowmaker"...and the same-old-story ballad of the genre: "Biggest Part of Me".
The album begins so well, with the saying "In this day and time of metal magic we need "rock 'n' roll"...we need Pantera!!!". Yeah, an extraordinary opening. In fact, we need this band at the present time but we need to listen this initial album, which brought one of the best guitarist to us too: "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott.
Main review for this album | Reviewer: David Whitton | 8/7/07
This album is Pantera's first real album. Like their later releases of the 1980s, this album showcases Pantera as a glam-metal group and the title to this record is also the name of their independent record company, which also featured their later 80s albums. Instead of Philip Anselmo fronting the group, Terry Glaze has the frontman spot and a few of the songs on this album you can hear on YouTube (the title track, "Tell If You Want It" and "Nothin' On (But The Radio)"). Despite that, this is a hard-to-find collector's item.
