I tend to agree - the Sound Mountain Session tracks are good , as is the opener but the rest I could live without. I rated it around 76%........85% for the Sound Mountain stuff and 70% for the rest. Oni is singing great but the songs are for the most part just okay and his soloing (as you suggest) does sound a bit "dialled in". Having said that ..for a 60 year old he's kicking ass

That was my reaction back in the day too - can't imagine I'd be any different now but will give it a try.

Toto and Queensryche for me............and I'd back Def leppard in to produce something decent over Europe at this point. But then I'm one of those who don't dig "modern" Europe.

Jon Oliva seems to be slowly coming around to the idea of another Savatage album. No cert by any means , but possible.

It was My Little Man. This stuff (which I've had a while) is very 70's and almost Beatlesy stuff in parts, although the versions on this of a few tracks that made it to Ozzmosis are arguably better. I like it. It seems to be stuff that was intended as a side project to the main Ozzy band as it's certainly not in the usual style - no guitar pyrotechnics etc.....

I'm pretty sure he played our AFL footy Grand Final in front of 100,000 people a few months back. I was wondering who the hell he is......now I know LOL.

Mitch Johnson is in a real pickle. I'm not sure intimidation is his only weapon to be fair , but he is a confidence player who has worked his butt off to return to the top of the pile and now I imagine he'll be second guessing himself for fear of being criticised. Tough position he's in. RIP Phil.

I've heard the Jap version and tbh by the end I'd equate it with an average Wig Wam record. One or two killer tracks and the rest I could live without.

It was on a website that is the equivalent of The Onion for heavy metal. Not serious!!

Hey Wardy - believe it or not I have Devil's Playground and have never played it LOL. I was actually going to mention Eyes Without A Face in my post - I got that vibe myself and tbh it's not really the sort of material I want dominating an album. As you say a few more rockers would've made a big difference.

Quality songwriting but by the end of it I was really struggling with the slow pace. The only song that really got me going was Postcards.......where Steve Stevens bobbed up for a second. Had a real Rebel Yell feel , which is more what I'm after.

No - definitely not a cover . Perhaps someone has covered it afterwards but I'm not aware of it. Having said that it must be the freakin 5 millionth song called "Hold On"

Much better than I expected - right up there near New Religion.

I love most of JLT's stuff but this is just okay ......not bad , just nothing I'll bother playing much. Solid rock and roll with some 70's Deep Purple/Rainbow tinges at times.

I agree with that. I refused many times to go and see Ray Charles and Stevie Wonder for the same reason. How the hell can they interact on a personal level with the paying customer when they can't even see them through their freaking sunnies. Rude as. :o)

I agree - it's excellent and has a bit of the same epic vibe of The Robe (although not to the same extent). I rate it around 90% (rare for me) . If I was to be picky...........there was one chorus that I feel I've heard before and as a whole I find the album a bit mid paced and needing one heavy rocker like Fear The Force or The Name of The Rose to make it close to perfect.

Listening to Ripper shriek at the Palace gig was the first time my ears have seriously hurt at a gig.

Well that doesn't help me LOL. I think Babylon was a big disappointment and my least favourite of the "classic" era , Spellbound I like (but nowhere near as much as Name of the Rose) and The Robe would be right up there if it didn't sound like it was recorded in an outdoor dunny. If it's anything like The Name Of The Rose then I'll be a happy chappy.

Fair enough Terry - I agree to some extent re modern bands doing the cheesy 80's style stuff....it gets old quick but I have no trouble with the stuff which I grew up with that was "of the time". Steel Panther I differ on though - in small doses I like them . Cheese that's intended to be tongue in cheek I find a lot more palatable than cheese that's meant to be taken seriously.

Maybe I need to give this more of a chance - In The Country made me puke from an OD of cheese.

The comments below are even funnier - either the congregation are all tone deaf or nobody has the heart to tell him that he sounds like a constipated chook.

Not liking the samples much but yes - Battle Cries is a ripper and can compete with any Christian rock/metal I've heard. Outside of Stryper it's probably my favourite CCM disc.

Hey Nikos - that was my first ever gig .....but it was in 89 on the New Jersey tour. Can't recall if Roxus were that good but I enjoyed both.

Nah......I rated it 76% . Decent but pretty generic and nothing I haven't heard done a lot better elsewhere. I wouldn't agree that it's on another level to Address The Nation either - I would reverse that. IMHO the H.E.A.T. is far better. It's also one of those weird albums with the best tracks hidden at the end. The only track I gave top marks to was Silence.
