Agreed Terry, some good songs on Last DJ and I also thought Highway Companion had a few gems (although technically not a Heartbreakers album). I hope I'm wrong too.

I'll be in the minority here and say..."eh". About the same as I felt about Mojo. TP follows the same trajectory for me as Bruce, U2, and Bon Jovi. The older they get, the more they forget how to write a killer hook. The album sounds to me about as mediocre as a TP album can get. Fits nicely along side Echo, Highway Companion, Mojo, and Last DJ. He hasn't put together a truly cla

For Sister Christian alone, NR would be the more recognizable band. Plus, they've got longevity on their side...11 studio albums, 6 top 40 hits, and they've sold over 10 million albums worldwide. I love DY's debut (thought Don't Tread was mediocre at best), but I'd take NR all day.

Yep, not a bad batch of songs...more in the vein of their earlier work with Bas. Looking forward to pt. 2 in August.

http://www.loudandproudrecords.com/kix-ready-rock-face-first-new-album-two-decades-august-5th-loud-proud-records/#.U6H8dCg8AYI For KIX, not recording any new music for two decades has been far too long. Fans have made it known for years that they want new music. And now, the time has finally come. The Maryland band is primed and ready to ROCK YOUR FACE OFF with their seventh new album set f

It's very difficult for me to name any truly "great" albums that have more than 12,13,14 tracks on them. Most of my favorite or classic albums top out at 12. And even those have a filler song or two. 8-10 songs, like in the old days, is usually perfect. No room for filler. I think it's fine that bands want to include more for the fan's sake, but more times than not, it's a few

Just like everything else...to each their own. A couple of songs that you skip (X Generation, St. Bartholomew) are my personal favs on the album. I agree with you on Don't Live Here...one of the best ballads the band has done since their heyday.

From sleazeroxx.com: McQueen Street frontman Derek Welsh is in a coma after falling and hitting his head on a tennis court. "It's not a good day for any of our friends and fans," says McQueen Street bassist Richard Hatcher. "He is not doing very good at all. Anyone that knows us, we were all like family at one time. I joined the band in 1989 as Klass and then we changed it to

Yes, briefly. He says he thinks it's deceiving the fans when Foreigner goes out with a sound-a-like. He does not disrespect Kelly, but simply says that Mick is lying to the fans when he tours without Lou as the vocalist.

I thought it was a good read. Lou's a class act and sticks mostly to his life in music. He seems to shoot straight as far as his relationship with Mick and all that went on during Foreigner's hey day and the break ups. His honesty about songwriting sessions and recording those iconic songs and albums comes through. Definitely worth getting if you are a fan.

Reading some comments leading up to the release, I felt hesitant. After several listens, I have to say that I like this every bit as much as SIC. The first 5 tracks are absolute classic NR. Don't Live Here Anymore sounds like a distant cousin to Rain Crashing Down. From there it varies in style, but I find that I'm enjoying it as a whole...it flows well as a complete album. The only

Cher comes to mind immediately with the 3 aor albums she released in the late 80s/early 90s. Just Like Jesse James, Love on a Rooftop, Save Up All Your Tears, etc.

Hear and Now was before Creatures. H&N (1988), Creatures (1991), TTT (1993).

The album after Creatures was Tell The Truth. Billy always thought it ranked as one of his finest and was so disappointed with the way the label handled it, that he walked away from recording music for a long time.

I remember liking it when it came out, but haven't revisted it in a long time. It started to feel like what it was...a Nikki solo project, co-written and co-produced by his Sixx AM buddies. Just had Vince, Mick, and Tommy playing on it.

"How is everyone finding the title song?" I love the song. Classic sing-along NR from start to finish. Not sure about the rest of the album. Wasn't really blown away by the samples, but I remember feeling the same way wit the SIC samples originally and that turned out to be one great album.

"Isn't that track on Perry's solo album?" Not on the original release of Street Talk. I think it was the b-side to Oh Sherrie, so technically not a "demo". It was later remastered and released on the 2006 version of Street Talk as a bonus track.

If You Stay is a great demo that should have made one of the Bad English albums, but was left off. Don't Tell Me Why You're Leaving and Lost Angels by Steve Perry. I still can't believe these were left off his solo albums. Naked Desire and Wish That I Was There by Mark Free. Does Anybody Really Fall in Love Anymore by Bon Jovi. Written for New Jersey and left off.

For me, it's his best solo album. Period. Very modern, but still melodic and agressive.

Yes, some great covers. That's actually Re-Animate pt. 2. Pt. 1 features covers of Slave to the Grind (Skid Row), Bad Romance (Lady Gaga), Out To Get Me (Guns), Hunger Strike (Temple of the Dog), and All I wanna Do Is Make Love to You (Heart). Worth tracking down.

I don't mind sticking up for Adrenalize. Like Ramsay said, it holds a special place in my heart. I love some of the songs still today. Stand Up is one of the band's better ballads. I also think White Lightning is brilliant. Now all of this is relative when comparing to Hysteria or Pyromania or H&D. Clearly all better works. Still, I can't help but smile when I hear Heaven Is or Let's

Same here Andrew. I really like it, if for nothing else than the unbelievable vocals. Smooth AOR, some nice Journey-esque moments. Reminds me of Trial By Fire. Both for its sound and for its "underratedness".
