In My experience the Rock Candy remasters are always sonically an improvement, usually by a long way. Every one i've brought so far has been worth every penny. Long may they continue!

Slang actually still sounds fresh today, like they could have released it this year. In some ways I think it was ahead of it's time. Only Hysteria beats it from the Leppard catalogue for me. And I'd much rather take the intelligent lyrics on Slang over Make Love Like A Man and Let's Get Rocked by a mile...if anything, the one track that let's it down is the title track.

I think Blaze actually features some of Jon's best writing and vocal performances, but it can't touch Stranger! It's Richie's finest hour!

Honestly Richard makes Gary sound like a poor club singer. Richard's is a world class voice.

Agree completely with the first post. Michael Anthony's voice was so prominent in those VH records, can't imagine them without it! Bon Jovi sound like a different band since Sambora left, JBJ's current voice problems aside. Jon and Richie's voices blended so well together and it just sounds kinda odd without him there in my opinion. Like there's a huge gap in the sound. How ironic that Sambora

It's not an argument, it's a discussion. It's all subjective anyways. My point is that there is more to Purple and Lizzy than catchy upbeat songs, and quite honestly the more commercial stuff they do is the weaker stuff in my opinion. But each to their own. No classic rock band is writing a "hit" in 2020.

I didn't say your ears didn't work, I said I didn't understand how they work. It was just a joke, hench the ;) at the end. If you think Purple and Lizzy were only about catchy upbeat numbers I suggest that you revisit their back catalogues. However, there are also plenty of upbeat numbers on the last few Europe albums. (GTO, Hole In My Pocket, the Beast, etc etc...)

The first two albums, definitely, but those influences disappeared from The Final Countdown, OOTW and Prisoners... What makes a great song is subjective. In my opinion there are plenty of great songs on their last few albums. And not many, for instance, on The Final Countdown. Most people here would probably say the complete opposite. If the band were re-hashing The Final Countdown over an

I agree with Wardy, too difficult to rank them all together, as they are like two different bands, both of which I love for differnet reasons.

Def Leppard just reissued all albums from Adrenalize to Eurphoria in a CD Box set not too long ago, so I guess they are hoping people will buy that. The next Box set is due next from X onwards at some point. I expect they will be holding out for some sort of deluxe reissue treatment for each album too at some point, as they seem to be really into re-issueing their back catalogue in various for

Were you there? No, didn't think so... She introduced her last song as "a classic written by the legend Dolly Parton". There wasn't a hint of sarcasm nor a smirk, she looked deadly serious and everyone in the audience was baffled when she started singing the Whitney song. Maybe it was joke, but if it was she needs to learn how to deliver them and not make herself look silly.

It didn't seem like she was taking the piss at all, but you never know some people's sense if humour. If it was a joke it didn't do her any favours as it got a very negative reaction from the crowd around me. As somebody pointed out people were skeptical due to the hollyoaks connection as it was, and it just kinda reinforced everyone's opinion. She was entertaining enough, but was outshined by mu

I struggle to hear any country in it at all to be honest, even modern country. And I love stuff like Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, Little Big Town, etc. It's pure pop to my ears. I saw her at the Long Road festival last year and she was ok, but kinda lost me when she announced that cover of Whitney's "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" as an old Dolly Parton classic....

Andy wasn't working well as Producer on Judgement Day and they let him go mid-recording sessions for that albm. However, he and Luke have remained freinds. Luke and Andy toured together as Taylor/Morley in 2000 and Andy guested at Thunder's Xmas Show in 2018. But yeah, Luke certainly likes to be in control of the music side of things.

Luke uses Drum Machines for Demos only. Harry always lays down the drum tracks on records.As Nik said it was recorded at Walton Castle and if memory serves the drums were set up in a circular room in a turret giving them a unique sound. The YouTube link is also a low bitrate transfer which doesn't help. Drums are still low in the mix, but the overall sound quility is better on the official lin

Pretty sure that they sued the old managers, so I don't think the relationship is there for them to just approach them.

Not for me. It sounds too much like FM. Way too polised and has taken all the bluesiness and grit out of Robert, which is when his voice sounds the best to me.

You can be doing other things while listening to a CD (driving, housework, etc) a Bluray you have to sit down and watch it to really appreciate it, otherwise you might as well juts listen to the CD. I love music Blurays but I get it.

He's trying too hard to sound commercially relevant for me. Trouble is, I'm not really sure who he's aiming the album at. The people that like this kind of music aren't going to give a damn about a Richard Marx album. And the majority of people that love his old stuff just aren't going to like this. There's a couple of decent songs on the second half, but the first half borders on unlistenabl

What gives you the right to take up 2 spaces? Just because you deem your car to be nicer than everyone elses? Imagine if everyone did that? They shouldn't have put the trash over your car, that was childish, but they absolutely have the right to think you are a dick for parking like that....
