I believe it was suggested by the greatest author/journalist/musical historian that has ever walk this earth, Martin Popoff. :)

I definitely hear Petty, but I feel like he's more of a combo of his father and Neil Young. That voice is heavily influenced by Neil. I like what I hear. It's pretty good.

1. Tom Petty - simply amazing every time I saw him live. Helps that he had one of the greatest backing bands of all time. 2. Steven Tyler - seen Aerosmith several times, even recently and he's lost nothing on his voice or his presence. 3. Rick Springfield - like the Energizer Bunny. No matter his age, he gives 110% on stage. 4. Bruce - same as Rick. His shows never disappoint and they g

Amaryllis is solid, not great, but good. Like so many bands, they caught lightning in a bottle with Madness. Nothing they did before or after could ever match that. The drop off from Amaryllis to Threat to Attention is just stunning.

Dancing Undercover and RFTS have their moments, but coming off those first 2 proper albums (especially Invasion), felt like a major drop off in quality. That said, Detonator ranks up there among their best, imo.

Arrival is good, the only post-Perry album that I still enjoy. That said, there's still tons of filler and some dull moments throughout for me. Tall Stories is also pretty good, not great, but good. Stay With Me...coulda/shoulda been a big hit...just released too late. Never took to any of his solo work, and the Tyketto album is not very good imo.

Agreed - Lap of Luxury received all the love and acclaim at the time, albeit for 3 really good singles. I always found the album to be a little spotty. Busted is much more consistent and remains one of my favorite albums from their catalog. Criminally underrated.

Not sure if Detonator would be a dud, it went platinum in 1991. So many albums that I love that would be considered duds in terms of sales or popularity... Hey Stoopid - Alice Cooper Ten - Y&T Prisoners in Paradise - Europe Blood on the Bricks - Aldo Nova Nothing Sacred - Babylon AD Lights Out on the Playground - Baton Rouge Dog Eat Dog - Warrant Wildside - Loverboy Hot Wire -

About as okay as a cover can get. It's a song that doesn't ever need to be covered by anyone. Ever.

Great list, and what I would consider true "alternative" albums.

Not sure it belongs on this forum, but what the hell, I'll play. Her EP from 2009, The Times of Our Lives, is just straight pop country. I can't say that I would recommend it to anyone with, ummm...ears, but it's the most accessible and doesn't make me want to vomit like most of her music. Speaking of vomiting, you can always sit back and enjoy this bit of nonsense... https://www.youtube

Definitely for vinyl collectors. I have no interest in CDs from any artist anymore.

Absolutely awesome. Discovered him recently through a Spotify playlist that included Hardline and FM. His tunes fit right alongside those classics. I would also recommend Kidburn, very 80s AOR type: https://kidburn.bandcamp.com/ I like that a lot of these synthwave artists are moving into a more melodic rock direction. LeBrock, Magic Dance, and others. All pretty cool stuff.

I love the Furs. They had a great 5 album run from 1980-1987. And I agree that Midnight to Midnight is fantastic. I also love Mirror Moves. There's much more AOR on those 2 albums than the new wave they were lumped into at the time. Loved hearing The Ghost in You last year in an episode of Stranger Things. They deserve much more recognition for their music than they ever received.

That said, The Outfield had 4 top 40 singles on the US charts. Two of those cracked the top 20 and another just missed at #21.

It's a solid album. I would recommend to anyone who liked Bad Co's Company of Strangers album with Robert Hart. This one plays like a companion piece to that.

from Bravewords.com Collen was asked if the band’s “youthful heavy rock attitude” featured on the group’s records High ‘n’ Dry and Pyromania will appear in new material. In terms of Def Leppard going back to their roots, Collen responded: “Yeah, we are aware of that… The first two Leppard albums were Leppard, definitely influenced by like AC/DC, but Pyromania was something diff

I still dig Euphoria. Some filler, but the great tracks are really great. It was the logical return to form after the underrated Slang. I worked at Mercury Records when they released it and the buzz was great, but then the label gave up when Promises didn’t become a huge hit. Such a shame. Of their post-Hysteria albums, I revisit this one most often.

Agreed. Bach was on Eddie Trunk today and issued an open invitation to any original member who wants to join him at any time to jam on the tour.

http://www.sebastianbach.com/ Bach performing the Skid Row debut in its entirety on the new tour in honor of the 30th anniversary. Anyone want to bet me he only gets to Can't Stand The Heartache before he throws a tantrum and storms off stage? (he's done that the last 3 times I've seen him)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p4dTl9CI3uU New album, Humanicide, out today. It's a great old-school thrash record with modern production. Since their comeback album in 2004, these guys have put out high quality, consistently good thrash music. Plays to their die hard fans while still bringing an updated sound. I think of recent releases by Overkill, Testament, F&J, and others. Make
