It's a "side project" of Jimmy Brown II of Deliverance; I have to be in a certain mood to really enjoy it, but there really are some quality tunes on these two albums.

I love HS, but find it impossible to rate all the albums because I haven't heard all of them. My two favs are Overload and Weight of the World. The only album that didn't catch my interest much was Hope; Higher and Human Nature are all in the middle.

I don't have all the emotion behind Perry and Journey, so it makes no difference to me whether the parties reunite or not. But it seems that if something was going to happen on this front, it would have by now. Same thing with new solo music by Perry; he's been teasing fans with the occasional comment about Ana album that it's become a case of "believe it when you see it." So I don't

It seems there's been a lot of this going on the past few threads. Everyone ought to take a chill pill before posting or at least take it to PM if things can't be civil. It really makes me wonder why we bother having a noticeboard if we have to read through multiple threads with this kind of thing.

I like most of Narnia's albums; the one from 2009 is very different (with a different singer), but the others are very much of the Yngwie neoclassical vein. Anything who likes this style will be happy with their albums

This has become a really boring thread; I'll be glad when it's relegated to Page 2 and people quit carrying on about this. Yeah, that includes me, too. ;)

Whew! Those are in the range of Rolling Stones ticket prices. I like most of these groups, but not that much.

Some good news; really enjoyed their last two albums and looking forward to more from Michael & Co. Also looking forward to more Lynch/Sweet as well.

Looks nice- I'd like to do something similar if I start building up a collection again.

King's X - most any album of theirs, but Faith, Hope, Love in particular. A most talented group of individuals that's been woefully underrated.

I have two thoughts on this. First, I think that it's easier to forgive the past misdeeds for musicians from earlier eras, like the 50's and 60's. Second, it also seems easier to forgive musicians for wrongs they committed than it is for actors - the Bill Cosby saga is one case in point.

Liked it okay, and Mason's vocals are superb. But it's not the Warrant sound I grew up with; Lane's absence in the songwriting dept. is very noticeable.

I liked it, though, though not quite as much as the previous album. My only complaint was that a few of the songs sounded like one another. But that only happened a few times, and my opinion might change after several more listens. It's overall a very strong album.

Listening to it now; it's very enjoyable. I haven't been disappointed by any of NR's recent albums.

Didn't get to see a lot of support bands back in the day, but Hurricane opening for Stryper was pretty good.

The new TNT album was delayed, probably sometime later this year.

Yeah, there's some truth to that. But $50 for a 10-song release, and in some cases for something that's been reissued a zillion times on various formats, feels a little outrageous to me. It doesn't help that I really hated vinyl back in the day; the hiss and pops about drove me crazy.

That's the position most "heritage" bands take now, and Foreigner is most definitely in that category. It just makes me grateful that there are still some vintage bands like Deep Purple that are still writing songs and doing some recording.

Maybe because folks see it for what it is: a cash grab. I personally disliked vinyl back in the day, and I hate how labels are charging $30, $50, and more for titles. A decade ago, you couldn't even give those things away.

Amazingly, I don't have too many regrets about what bands I've seen live. I didn't get a chance to see many 80's bands back in the heyday, but I didn't really miss it. Just was grateful for what shows I did get to- Stryper once and Whitesnake two times. I might have said classic era Dokken at one time, but that ship sailed port long ago.

I listened to a fair bit of Christian metal during the "boom days" of the late-80's/early-90's. There were some really decent bands mixed in with some truly awful ones The bands for me was: Whitecross, Barren Cross (second album onwards), Bloodgood, Saint, Shout/Ken Tamplin projects, Bride, and others that were 'one album wonders,' like Rage of Angels. There were a couple of other

I loved First Watch to death when it first came out, but I don't consider it their best album by any means. The songs and production has the Stryper stamp all over it; I'm sure Oz Fox's producing it had a lot to do with it. I also remember one of the songs sounding like a Van Halen outtake. But I agree that the remastered version sounds really good. I also encourage anyone to check out Fire &

That's what I thought too about XYZ's - way heavier and it avoids the Dokken production influences.

I also thought that Skid Row's second album was waaay superior to their first - a real monster. Slaughter's second album is also stronger in the songwriting department, IMO.

it's the main guitar riff that catches you; very hooky. And yes, Enough to Enough is very Ratt and roll. Another track, All I Need is You, is taken from the George Lynch textbook- very Dokken sounding.

I liked Bloodgood a lot, especially the first two albums because they were more on the "metal side." I wish they had done more recording before they broke up initially. However, they did a reunion album recently with Oz Fox which was surprisingly rocking

As long as we're mentioning CCM hard rock bands, I enjoyed Dennis Cameron's guitar skills on his three Angelica albums; the songs were a little on the generic side, but I still liked them. Cameron was very underrated, IMO.

I also met Carroll once at a local festival, and he seemed okay. He signed autographs and chatted with fans after their set, and I had a decent impression of him. It may have just been a bad day.
