That's an interesting observation from Carl, to be honest I listened to all the samples on ITunes and played a couple of the promo videos and, "Rat Race" aside, it didn't really grab me at all. My experience was similar with Karma, though there were more songs that grabbed me immediately. I accept there are albums/bands where you have to listen more intently and often to "get"

Look, I usually avoid posting negativity here but having read this blurb from Heaven and Earth: "Heaven & Earth are pleased to announce two new members into the fold.... ..the second is one of Australia's premier drummers, Jackie Barnes...graduated from Berklee with a Bachelor of Music in 2010 and has played on over 50 international releases including 5 DVDs and has worked with artist

Tracy's main problem was, I think, that he followed on the tails of three successive very technically adept players and he wasn't that kind of guitarist. That said, I think Strange Highways has a lot of really good songs on it: "Pain" is quite possibly the heaviest song Dio ever did! The follow-up album Angry Machines, though, has IMHO very few redeeming features. I remember seeing them

I just checked to see if I could get a quick fix for this classic album, but incredibly neither Blackout, or from what I could see any of the EMI-era albums (Lovedrive, Animal Magnetism, Love at First Sting etc) are available at least not from iTunes New Zealand. Is this true for everywhere else? The other thing that is sort of O/T but related is that every Gamma album apart from "3"

It is funny how tastes differ but that's cool. I'm with Terry on Blackout over Animal Magnetism which to me is one of the weakest Scorps albums recorded with the Jabs/Bucholz -era lineups. I agree with Jack though in viewing Lovedrive as "better", if only because LD to me is one of a few albums that can genuinely be described as 10/10 - all killer, no filler. Unbelieveably, I cann

Like many I thought there was a whole album recorded at the time the original version of "Inside Love" was released. I have that on 12" somewhere and really liked it at the time, and still now (I found it on YT of course!). This release is a real surprise being a whole bunch of songs apparently written at that time but recorded recently. I am very likely to check this out if only t

I just realised I saw them on the Back in Black AND Black Ice tours... not gonna pretend they are my fave band or anything but they wrote some CLASSIC songs that will NEVER fade away, a fabulous live band... I just really wish Malcolm and the rest all the very best for the future in their own lives. They have left a musical legacy that will stand for many generations to come. Let There Be R

Micky Moody and Gus G? Wow that's eclectic! I like both guitarists but they have VERY different styles!

I write this with sympathy on both sides to some extent. I saw a perfectly good message board (not MR) in the past taken out by the lunatics in the asylum so know how bad it can get. We are all passionate about music or we wouldn't be here. Let's just make sure that: 1) We accept we will not like EVERY BAND others do 2) We should RESPECT the opinions of others 3) We should BE POLITE AT ALL

Glad I didn't shell out for the NZ - Oz flight... I love these guys but did suspect this leg might have gone belly up... commisserations to band and fans alike.

I still really like it. At this point I probably rate the songs with the guest vocalists most, including "And We Run" which has been slated by many due to the rapper Xzibit. I hate rap but I think this works here. Fave track is "Dangerous" which is propelled wonderfully by a double bass drum beat but is still very melodic. WT are right now my top band to see, of those who I ha

Thanks Woody. To be honest his live performances were erratic 30 years ago so I didn't expect any different now. Still love "Down To Earth", "Assault Attack", "Stand In Line" and "No Parole From Rock 'n' Roll" though. Great studio performances.

2005, just about to move to New Zealand from Denmark, a MAJOR Royal Hunt fan and their tour kicks off 2-3 days after we are scheduled to leave. With no hope at all I posted wistfully on the message board "don't suppose you could kick off earlier" (I mean, Come ON!) to which Andre Andersen replied, "no, sorry... but you could come and see us rehearse"... I basically spent almos

Tommy, maybe you're reading not posting but here's my 2 cents: you're a fabulous musician but this attitude is beneath you. This is kindergarten stuff and you are - or should be - better than this....

What we really want to know is: did Tommy Denander play on it? If not it must be a collectors item as one of the few albums ever recorded he hasn't appeared on :)

Great guitarist, that didn't do it for me but a couple of days ago I played "The Ride" from Howe II. THAT grooves, rocks, effervesces... gotta hear it to believe it!

Very few. Although there is a caveat to that. Royal Hunt top of the list. Right now, Issa too. Within Temptation come damn close. I did catch the video for Paradise though and that sold me on the album! Back in the day, Dio (RIP) and Yngwie too - up until Perpetual Flame anyway which is where he lost me. BUT if it's cheap enough I'll take a punt! I picked up Message's album Fine Line

For many, many years this was my favourite film about music and it certainly is a timeless classic movie. But for me, it has been just surpassed by Anvil: The Story of Anvil which is funnier and more touching and all the more so since it is true.

I side with Wardy to the extent that I think The Great Radio Controversy is a more balanced album, but ...Resonance has some totally outstanding killer tracks on of which EZ Come, EZ Go and Modern Day Cowboy are the absolute standouts. Yet somehow while Tesla had all the elements that shoulda made them among my favourite bands of the day, there was something missing for me. Some awesome songs tho

I saw them on the Back In Black tour! London Victoria I think... at Donington too but latterly on Black Ice in Auckland. Good album, great live band. I would. Again. And definitely if they do NZ.

I too think The Unforgiving was very strong and my fave WT release so far... but each of the songs released so far as videos with guest vocalists I've really enjoyed. I am looking forward to getting my copy on Friday!
