It's a great read, even if you're not a Sabbath/Ozzy fan per se.

I doubt that Frontiers does anything to interfere with an artist's endeavors, and I have no faith that Tate's going to do anything different from his last couple of outings. O:M will be more of the same.

No surprise- it seemed to be in the cards after the developments with Malcolm's illness.

I've paid through the nose for a couple of imports- I think I paid about $45-50 for a rare Japanese version of TNT's "Knights of the New Thunder" that had the 'banned' cover. These days, I wouldn't pay as much - I start digging my heels in if a hard copy is over $12-15.

I do like Muse, but they seem more like an under-the-radar type of band. However, it isn't possible for any band to achieve massive success in the U.S. unless they have the corporate machinery of radio and concert promotions behind them, and it certainly won't happen for rock bands.

Haven't met a lot of rock musicians myself, but the guys from the doom band Trouble were generally nice, especially the bassist. The worst we met in passing was Don Dokken - he was a total jerk during the band's set, and he nearly got into a fist fight with a fan that asked for an autograph. My brother felt lucky as he was approaching DD for an autograph himself.

I actually liked Women and Children a little more than the first two albums; it sounded great last night. But I'm really looking forward to Fair Warning.

I hadn't listened to VH albums in several years, though I've heard the usual cuts on "classic rock" radio every now and then. Last night, I finally listened to the first two albums, and it just blew me away again. Some of the most creative songs and guitar playing that's ever been heard. And I enjoyed listened to VH II more than I ever had. Makes me look forward to listening to more

One of their best albums, IMO. I've always enjoyed Metal Church; the only caveat is that their musical output over the years is a bit uneven because of lineup changes.

In rock 'n' roll, originality is simply a slight twist on a formula used by all bands that makes people think you stand out in the crowd. Don't get me wrong; I enjoy rock a lot. But I really do wonder whether Joe Perry was right in saying you can twist three chords around infinitely. At some point, it does start to sound the same.

What's surprised me is how little I've heard about Michael Sweet's solo release in recent months. He's been talking more about releasing another Stryper album, which is great, but why is the other flying under the radar? Maybe I just need to pay more attention, but it seems kind of weird...

I've liked the songs I've heard from him this go round - not sure I'd buy the album, but still enjoyable.

I'd disagree about Don never being to sing; he sounds great on the taped concert of their tour with Aerosmith. And other early clips I've heard are also good.

I loved the classic lineup over the years, but I wouldn't go see them today. No point, really, for all the reasons that people have already stated.

I still don't have the gift card yet, but I think it'll be the Defiants and Nordic Union. Thanks all!

It's been posted on Bravewords and other reputable outlets. A very sad development.

I love TNT, but I won't really believe this is long term until a new album is done and tour dates are firmly booked. I agree with Figge: it's hard to be terribly optimistic when you consider the on-again/off-again nature of this relationship. But My Religion showed that there's still some magic in the TH/Le Tekro songwriting partnership, so it'll be nice if it happens.

Actually, I kind of know what I'm probably going to get, but I'm curious as to what folks would get with $25. I'm getting one of those gift cards for Amazon (courtesy of a credit card rewards program) and I'm getting either two hard copy albums or three digital albums. So, what would be the must gets at the moment? I should say that I already got Treat and Eclipse's latest...

A good 80's metal vibe; it would have been a monster if it had been released back then.

It just means nothing is ever really set in stone; artists change their minds all the time. That said, I think it'd be a good thing for Journey to take some time off - they might actually get recharged enough to create new music instead of doing the "summer shed tour" thing over and over again.

They have certainly hyped this film, but I'm looking forward to it. Especially interested in seeing how they treat Spider-Man as a character in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

I just listened to the new album, and it's fantastic. Some of the best AOR that I've heard so far this year; it's on the top of my list of to-gets.

Prince's music was never my cup of tea, but he was still one of the inventive musicians of his generations. A very unexpected and tragic loss.

http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/black-country-communion-to-return-in-2017/ Of course, it's Blabbermouth, so I often take most of what they say with a grain of salt. But this looks legit, so I guess it's exciting news for BCC/Hughes fans.

I liked the songs that I heard - I know the singer sounds like he's got his testicles caught in a vice, but that was the type of "singing" most hard rock vocalists tried to do in the late 80's/early 90's, and I was used to hearing that. It didn't prevent me from enjoying the songs, though, so I guess I would have rated the album a little higher. But just my 2 cents, of course.

For me, it depends on what type of digipak the album is housed in. There are very fancy digipak sets that are nice and don't wear as easily. However, I've bought a number of albums on indie album that use them as cost-saving measures, and they're flimsy as anything. Most of the time, those versions don't even have room for liner notes, which takes the fun out of buying a CD.

Back in the day, I had to buy most of the music I listened to on cassette. But I have to confess that I hated it even then; cassettes were annoying to deal with. They wore out quickly and there were always problems with the players "eating" the tape. I know the technology has improved a little bit, but it's really impossible for me to see cassettes as being more than a nostalgia thin
