Bands were so VERY original back then. There wasn't alot of 'this band sounds similar to...' because there weren't tons of bands to make comparisons. Each group was interested in carving out their own special niche. One of the main reasons yhat alot of them are held in such high regard even today. They all started this crazy hard/melodic rock machine that we adore to this day. Kinda tough for younger fans to go back and get the same elation for some older acts tho. It can be an excersize in 'had to be there' to fully enjoy those heady days. That said,some music holds up rather well even all these long years later. Even bands that emulate the 80's hair band sound are getting some press these days--nowhere near as much of course. bUt it's still really cool to hear current bands that harken back to classic days with their sound. I know I'm diggin'it bigtime! :-) T

PS: if you dig that twin lead harmony guitar thang that W. Ash had going on,you can def hear influences of them in the Plankton cds.
