Holy Hell! Hansen, Weikath, Gro├čkopf and Kiske together again... plus Andi and Sacha. Will have to make the trip for a few shows. Hope the US dates are extensive! http://pumpkins-united.helloween.org/en/pumpkins-united-world-tour-2017-2018.html

I like it, especially after seeing it performed live, but the story is so cringe-worthy I rarely listen to it anymore. As much as I love DT, they are in dire need of working with an outside producer. Someone needs to help them refocus. They have not been the same band I fell in love with since Six Degrees.

There's a shit ton of good country music out there. You won't hear it on "country" radio though.

Agreed! Wonderfully written. This is the kind of review that, even though it is clear the reviewer didn't like it, makes me want to listen to the record even more than I did before. I clicked on the ranked albums list and was very pleasantly surprised to see someone else who ranks These Days above everything else the band has done. Super curious about the new one now.

Saw the Cocks about a month ago... amazing! I haven't found too much crossover w/ hard rock, and these are fairly big industrial bands so you probably know them, but what about My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult and the offshoot Excessive Force? For something more recent, how about The Dreaming (Christopher Hall of Stabbing Westward on vox).

Probably not your thing musically, but Chris Corner (IAMX) writes/plays/produces everything he does. I think he's pretty damn brilliant. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FLmC2hSRwKM

An ABBA compilation... always been a sucker for catchy pop hooks. Probably the reason I prefer AOR/Melodic Rock over the strip bands.

If your evolution comes from an honest place, it'll work. If you're only chasing trends without your heart being in it, everyone will be able to tell. Whether your fans follow you down that path is a different matter altogether. Winger's "Pull" is amazing.

Agreed with a lot said on this thread. Very little modern MR appeals to me anymore. Not only is it unexciting musically, but the lyrics tend to be so horrible in the genre for this 40yo. I have no interest in hearing about "Sweet Little Sisters", especially when sung by 50+ year olds. I find a lot more material I can relate to in folk/indie/Americana, synthpop/industrial and progressive

Unfortunately, CDs and DVDs can develop disc rot. I have a few affected by it.

Saw the show last week in DC. Amazing as always. Butch has never disappointed me live, but this show has a new kind of fire that is infectious.

Great record! It dips a little on the second half, but the only song I don't rally care for is "Record Store." Live, the new songs are even stronger and more powerful. "Wilder in the Heart" is probably my favorite Butch song since Sycamore Meadows.

The biggest problem is that none of these bands are writing their own material. It's going to sound cookie cutter not just because of the guy producing them, but because that same guy is also writing (I'd assume) the majority of the material. Whether you think that cookie is tasty is a different matter, but I'm more interested in bands/artists who have something to say themselves.

Better than anything since the black album, but, it is pretty forgettable. Those first 4-5 albums were so damn original sounding and full of thought-out compositions, this pales in comparison. But again, much better than antything they've put out in the last 25 years.

Exactly where I am. It's better than the last 4-5 singles, but it doesn't excite me in the least.

Starts very strong, but starts dipping w/ "Make Some Noise" and doesn't quite recover until "Freedom", IMO. But, still better than most everything released in the genre so far this year.

Because they're imports. Prices not much better on NEHRecords and the rest of the mailorder places...

1960s - The Doors. Only recently have I truly appreciated them but they were the epitome of "cool." 1970s - Queen. The common root to so many bands I love. (Second place goes to ABBA.) 1980s - Tough one. Could go pop (The Outfield), metal (Metallica, prob) or electronic (Depeche Mode, New Order), but I'll have to go with AOR and choose Journey because I still love the classic AOR
