A few thoughts

I don't have much to add about the Bad English "Backlash" album that hasn't already been said. If you liked the first, you'll like this. The sound is primarily the same and the only difference in the songs is that they're not quite as blatantly sappy as the debut. But if you're a Neal Schon fan then you should own this.

As for Giuffria, I've always thought of them as a wimpier version of HOL in terms of sound. The Lords albums have a thicker, meatier production, with the guitars more prominent. Giuffria relyed more on the keyboards. I'd go with "Silk + Steel" over the debut, but it's not the big a difference.

Let me also be one of the few people to put in a HUGE vote for Tall Stories. I absolutely love this album and rank it with Hardline's "Double Eclipse", 21 Guns' "Salute", Neverland's self-titled and Open Skyz's self-titled as probably the five most criminally overlooked hard rock debuts in history. Journey vocal comparisons aside, this album rocks with tight production and some great songs. "Wild On The Run", "Chain of Love", "Crawling Back" are all killer, and "Stay With Me" is an immense power ballad. How AOR/hard rock fans can bad-mouth this disc is beyond me. I've worn my copy out. I honestly think you can't go wrong with this album.

-Later, Angus
