Never heard. I quite liked that song, actually. Will check 'em out. Thanks for the heads up. // Figge

My guess would've been a "hot" current name, 'cause that's how Coverdale's worked in the past...with Vandenberg, Viv Campbell, Doug Aldrich, Rudy Sarzo, Steve Vai, Reb Beach etc. It has to be a somewhat cool and good looking dude too, I guess. ;-) I can't come up with any current top guitarists at the moment....but a perfect example of this when Ozzy hired Gus G.

No problem, Nick. Glad you enjoyed Lipservice. It's a huge favourite of mine and probably the best album the last decade, if you ask me, and I too think it's better than both H.E.A.T and W.E.T. The following Gotthard albums with Steve Lee is almost as good (Domino Effect, Need To Beleive) but Lipservice is still my fave. I do however agree with Andrew about the length of the album....mostly

"Don't forget also semi-new arrivals in melodicrockville who could do with a bit of assistance getting oriented!" Wardy did a thread about favourite albums the last couple of years a couple of weeks ago. http://www.melodicrock.com/phorum52/read.php?1,980175,980189#msg-980189 Some of my favourite albums the last decade.

It sure sounds more promising than the last couple of albums. In fact, the only albums I've really liked is Legacy of Kings, Renegade and Crimson Thunder....and this is more like those albums. It'll be interesting to hear. Album trailer(s): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JZhhS8AuxQg http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RH0ryJuEQrQ // Figge

What's the use, Terry? It's a matter of taste and preference and no matter what albums I mention, the people here who say that Coup De Grace is the best album the last couple of years will say "no way those are better albums". You and most people here have most certainly already seen what I like and prefer....and we don't agree very often. Two examples of albums I enjoy more than Tre

Yeah, you are in the minority....and so am I. I feel the same way as you. I think it's an OK album but it lacks the standouts for me. I think Ernlund's voice is weak and definitely lacks the punch and power of say JSS and Grönwall (since you mentioned W.E.T. and H.E.A.T). The choruses are a lot more flowing and doesn't have the impact and punch I search for either....and another thing that annoy

People don't buy albums like they used to anymore....and they never will. I'm not surprised, at all. "...makes you wonder how much longer this can all go on before music labels and artists start refusing to record/release product because they can't recoup costs" Well, then I guess they won't be music labels or artists anymore. :-O // Figge

Glad to hear, Mick. As I said, repeated listens are rewarded with "Army of One" as there are some gems hidden there. Some songs takes a little more effort to get but there are more immediate tracks too like Knockin' At My Door (fantastic song!!!), Darker Side of Light, for example. Classic melodic hard rock with Mike DiMeo in brilliant form. I hope you get a hold of a copy that do

Sure, Mick, I'll give it a shot. As you said....trying the best to keep it in the genre, and as recent as possible. :) Gotthard - Lipservice Definitely one of the best the last 10 years, and still my favourite with the band. This one might even make a "best of ever" list from me. GPS - Window To The Soul This one took a while for me to really appreciate. Sure, I liked it a l

Steve Lukather on "Turn Back": "That was our f— you record. We didn’t want to listen to anybody; we wanted to be a rock and roll band. The label kept putting out the ballads, you know? They put out ‘99’ instead of ‘White Sister,’ and we gradually lost our credibility at rock radio because they kept focusing on the softer stuff. When ‘Hydra’ came out, they said,

I've heard the whole debut album, and that is enough of a "rip off" to be mentioned in this thread anyway, Troy. Perhaps they "were" a rip off, and not "are" but that doesn't change the fact that they started out as an imitation of Led Zeppelin. // Figge

I would definitely call Kingdom Come a rip off. That's not influence if you ask me....that's a carbon copy of Led Zeppelin - in style, sound, songs structure and especially the vocals (total imitation of Robert Plant). If that's not a rip off then I don't know what is, even if the songs themselves isn't stolen right off. Nothing original whatsoever about KC (I'm talking about the debut, especiall

Ok, now I've listened to the album enough to make a statement. My own personal thoughts. It's better than my first impression suggested, but I think California is a way better album as a whole. Some songs have grown a bit on me, but some are still as average as the first spins suggested. High Road is ok, but I still don't like the vocals in the verse. Don't know what it is about it, but it

Yeah, great game and a fantastic performance from the Dutch...but a surprisingly BAD display from Spain. I must say I'm very surprised at the outcome of that game. Not that Holland won, cause I thought they had a chance at doing so, but at how the game went and at how easy the Dutch ran through the Spanish defense, time after time. Five goals at the masters of not conceding goals in tournamens. W
