Is anyone else irked by this? I've noticed alot of these new AOR/Melodicrock cd's coming out to rave reviews, when in reality most are so-so or good at the most.
(I know of a certain webmaster who's guilty of this)....

I think when a new release comes out, such as the last Motley Crue cd, a bunch of their fans jump on the bandwagon, & hype it up to be their best cd ever......back to their old style....blah blah blah. When in reality it was one of their worst cds....the Crue haven't had "it" for years. Ditto for the latest Dokken. I used to visit one of their websites....that webmaster ever hyped up George Lynch's last solo album as being awesome!!!!

What really pisses me off is all the hype I heard about Firehouse's newest cd....(same old hype - "back to their old rockin' style"...."best cd they've put out". I tentatively decided to buy it, gave it 3 listens, & decided it was a piece of @!#$. The lyrics are awful & shallow, music was ok, overall I'd give it a 3 on a scale of 1 to 10. I wish to hell I would have saved my $$$$$ and bought some older cd instead. I'm really disappointed with the music my favorite 80's bands have put out lately. I visited Kip Winger's web site...(was a fan of Winger awhile back)...he had some Real Audio samples of his newest "Songs from the Ocean Floor". I was unimpressed - sounded like a 80's musician trying to sound 90's. Sad.

Just venting. Any comments or opinions back????
