I doubt there'll be that much difference from the first remaster series; I certainly didn't see anything in the press release that'll make me want to buy them. Now the Van Hagar catalog, that'd be a different story.

It's all about control, nothing more. What they don't seem to realize is that they're not that big of a deal anymore (let's be honest) and they don't benefit with keeping everything a secret. It all just jerks off what fanbase they have left.

They have so many other people on stage, it's hard to imagine why they'd bother to hide other musicians behind the curtains. But considering band politics, who knows. I wouldn't put anything past Mick Jagger to do something like that.

A good read, but it shouldn't be that big of a surprise to anyone who knows the history of Metallica...dysfunction has been the name of the game there, and James/Lars never treated Jason Newsted very well during his tenure with them. Should also say that anything posted on Blabbermouth should be taken with at least a slight grain of salt. :)

Loved the album back in the day. I do remember thinking that the last song (Black Hearted Woman) sounded a bit too much like Bad Boys from the Whitesnake 87 album, but the rest of the album sounded great.

Same thing happened with the band Guardian...three guys, including Jamie Rowe, were all wanting to get back together, but it took them forever to convince Tony Palacios (guitarist) to get on board, and even then, it seemed to take forever for them to get an album finished.

I'm surprised...surprised that this hadn't happened sooner, that is. Also hoping Jake finds himself a decent singer.

The last word heard was, it was extremely doubtful that they would do another album at this point. Too much expense and little return to get everyone together in one place, I guess.

There might have been a few scattered dates here and there, but nothing much. If there was, I guess nobody recorded them (or at least bothered to put it up for public viewing).

He was in Bloodgood, but then left to do producing and other projects. He came out with a couple of solo albums; his second was the best. I'd recommend his music to anyone who likes 80's hard rock.

I've enjoyed some live albums over the year, but not many. The only one that I listened to a lot years ago was Dokken's Beast from the East, because it was the only live representative of the classic lineup that I ever got to heard. But generally, it's like what you said. I remember seeing a bunch of live albums/compilations come out from Anthrax, and Scott Ian admitted in his autobiography th

It'd be nice to see new music by Foreigner and Styx.

Not a big deal; it's not like it's the first time a rock musicians has crossed genres. And besides, country's pretty much turned into pop/rock anyways. I'm sure Tyler's efforts will sound okay, especially if he has the Nashville machine behind him for songwriting and recording.

I like longer songs fine, if it has great ideas that lend themselves to a lengthy exploration. The typical reaction of most fans is that the musicians are just being a bunch of show-offs, and that can be the case sometimes. But I enjoy an ambitious song or album as much as anyone; it just depends on the mood, and whether the band/musicians in question have the talent and songwriting chops to pu

The Japanese-edition tracks were a microcosm of how I felt about the album - Crazy Ride was okay, but the other was a miss for me. That makes about 8 or 9 of the songs that I liked; just enough for a full album. Kind of wished the band had just stuck with those songs and not put so much filler in.

I liked Ripper's voice, but not the songs on those two albums. It's been years since I listened to them, but my impression was that the band was trying too hard to be "modern metal." Maybe time would cause me to re-assess that, but I never listened to either album more than a couple of times.

Considering how bad the legal situation was between Tate and the rest of the guys, something had to be given up in order to settle affairs out of court. I guess the other guys (Michael, Scott, and Eddie) decided they weren't going to be interested in re-visiting the whole Operation: Mindcrime thing, and decided to let that go to Tate. On Tate's side, I'm sure he'd hit the jackpot if he could

Despite all the crap that went on, I'm happy in the end for Michael, Eddie, Scott, & co. They just seemed so much happier and into it when I saw them last year at M3. Todd La Torre's given them a big shot in the arm, and they're now able to re-build the band's name with the QR fans. Looking forward to the next album. As for Tate...well, God bless him, I hope he's happy with having the r

Given that it has a catalog and bar code number assigned to it, I'd say it's a CD release. Not sure whether they'll offer a download or not.

Speaking for myself, the site has directly helped keep me plugged into the genre than I would have been otherwise. It introduced me to Harem Scarem and some other bands that I wouldn't have heard about. So, I definitely appreciate the hard work that Andrew puts into the site.;

Hadn't thought of that, but true...maybe he was living in the studio as they were recording. :)

It's nice to read a positive review, and I appreciated the thought the reviewer put behind it, but aside from the detail, there wasn't much new that I hadn't thought about already. The album is DC re-visiting some of his songs from Deep Purple through the Whitesnake blues-rock filter of the late 80's. It might earn a listen for me if it goes up on Spotify, but since I already own the original D

Sweet & Lynch was a satisfying release, and will likely rank up high for my 2015 list. Revolution Saints was pretty good, though it isn't at top because some of the songs lacked individuality.

Listened to most of the Scorpions, and it's what I expected. I'd take about 6 songs, 4 uptempo and 2 ballads, and the rest I can leave. Not enough to pick up the full album, unfortunately. Playing catch-up with other releases now, hope to hear Europe and UFO before too long.

Loved the first two movies. Have to admit that I haven't much of the third one other than bits and pieces, but the fourth was just okay. Prometheus was good for what it was - a sort-of prequel. Guess we won't talk about all those Predator vs. Alien flops. :)

For the invention of heavy metal, it's Black Sabbath's Paranoid and Deep Purple's In Rock. For the more modern definition of metal, it's Metallica's Kill 'Em All.

I liked the album. I'll admit that it doesn't quite live up to the pre-release hype that surrounded it before its release, but it's a good nod to the 80's hard rock style. Worth at least a couple more listens.
