> China:s/t and Sign In The Sky

These guys I think sound like a poor man's Bonfire (which was a poor
man's Dokken) so China is like a poor man's Pink Cream 69,
Treat, or Dokken. It's all good, and worth it if you can find a used copy,
but don't expect anything better than Dokken, who were the kings of
melodic metal with strong melodies and harmonies.

> Skagarack:Slice Of Heaven (I have Hungry For a Game and find
> it too wimpy)

Skag sounds like pure wimpwire stuff, like Aviator I guess but more
keyboard oriented. Good if you can find it used.

> The Front (Funderburk/Huff)-Can't make a comment about a band I haven't heard.

> Prophet:s/t (I like cycle Of The Moon,but ain't a big Arcara
> fan.....hoping original with Fasano and Poley is better)-this should be
reissued soon, so I think everyone will get to hear it. My guess is that
it's going to sound like early Bonjovi and Message.

> Blind Vengeance (Harry Hess before Harem Scarem)

Is Blind Vengeance a bootleg?

> Tour de Force:s/-they sound like a poor man's Steelheart or something.
Not very original.

> D'Mont:Body Language (Aussie band)-nuthin' special. This album is not
worth chasing but worth chasing if you want to use it to trade for.
If you're going to listen to good melodic hard rock from Australia, get
Angry Anderson's Blood From Stone. The album cover looks like something
Black Flag, the Angry Samoans, or early Fear would have put out, but
it's the melodic music that rocks.

> Treat:Pleasure Principle (I have Dreamhunter and Organised
> Crime and think they are OK,if a bit inconsistent)-I felt that Treat are overrated,
unfortunately. I think these guys sound like From the Fire, Skagarack,
Da Vinci, Strangeways, Biloxi etc but their latter albums sound heavier
and more ninetieish.
