Some valid points made but this notion of moving with the times as described by Gav doesn't make sense! A lot of people seem to be forgetting that many of the great melodic rock bands of the 1990s like Heartland and Ten have little connection to the 'hair bands' of the 1980s even though they are often lumped in with them. The distinct AOR sounds of the aforementioned bands are lyrically much more mature than the RATTs, Poison's etc(though I still admire these bands) and thus they form part of a "new movement" as such. The same goes for bands like Emerald Rain and Harem Scarem - relatively young bands and in the case of "Emerald Rain" only a few years old. So all these bands could be considered contemporary and very relevant, so the notion of moving with the times doesn't hold water.
And then in the case of a band like Danger Danger they've totally reinvented themselves - Gildersleeves, an absolute peach of an album bears very little relation to the early Ted Poley stuff and maturity wise is streets ahead.
This board is a democratic forum but let's not forget this is a MELODIC ROCK site and above all we should be boosting the fortunes of the Ten's, Firefly's, Heartland's, Danger Danger's etc. that are most representative of this site.
In any case, it's great to see that on this site 99 percent of the time we are all fair and civil to each other and respect each other's opinions without degenerating into slander and innuendo! Cheers. KAOS FAN!
