I echo Andrew's sentiments in his review. This release is just insulting. One or two serviceable tracks surrounded by dreadful dirges and MOR dreck. I understand these are leftovers, but it really doesn't play out any different than the last few BJ albums. 10% is generous!

Train wreck of a show per usual. And no real "rock" represented at all. No surprise. As for Tori, cute girl. Song was okay. She won't really stand out in the sea of mediocrity from last night, unfortunately.

Blabbermouth is the best for news updates and rumors. Rocktopia and Classic Rock are good. So is Sleaze Roxx.

Posted over at blabbermouth... DEF LEPPARD singer Joe Elliott spoke to Grand Forks Herald about the band's forthcoming self-titled album, tentatively due before the end of the year. He said: "It's finished. We're just doing simple, last-minute adjustments. The first song is going to go to radio next month. It's a 14-track, 55-minute album. It's just called 'Def Leppard' because that's wha

Agree with you Figge. This one is awfully poppy sounding to me. Not sure what to make of it.

Too many ballads? Maybe. Too many mediocre and boring songs? Yep. Not sure why anyone except a completist would need to buy this CD. Imagine...these are songs that didn't make the cut on the last couple of dreadful BJ records. I think that says it all.

Adolfo's list below is excellent and usually has all genres, light and heavy. I didn't see the new UDO on there, but I'm sure he can add that.

New music from female-fronted metal band Diemonds. For anyone who misses Damone or maybe just likes the 80s sunset strip throwback sound. They've been out on the road opening for Lita Ford. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i6S6m9yYrqA

Yep, the new "solo" album is dreadful. Dancy-pop junk mostly. I still love her, tho and I'll hold out for the next rockin' Nocturnals album. Til then, I have this... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ypwcitHSEQo Classic.

Surprise of the year for me. Never heard of these guys before and then I heard Restless Hearts on soundcloud and I was hooked. Lots of Lizzy, Kiss, Aerosmith-type influences on the album. Great stuff.

Agreed...exactly what Jeff Lynne is known for. This has that Full Moon Fever vibe. It worked for Petty, but I'll pass on this from Bryan Adams.

Yep, and I actually think that's a decent song. They suffered what so many other modern rock bands have suffered. One good album (Lipstick on the Mirror), followed by lots of mediocrity. War of Angels and Onyx were totally forgettable. Not bad, just not memorable. Just my opinion, of course. I'll still check this one out and judge when I hear it in its entirety.

Meh, not really. Borderline is the best in my opinion. Most of the tracks are demo-quality and sound like they may have been left off for sounding like throwaways from 7800F.

Terry, I get that. There are certain artists that rise above all the critics. Nickelback was never that band. They play meat & potatoes rock for the most part. That has always proved fodder for haters. My comment was only meant to show that you cannot be all that hated unless you are first loved by many. BTW, I know plenty of folks who "hate" Billy. In particular, I can

A few, from what I remember. Borderline is a classic from that era. Outlaws of Love, Out of Bounds from the box set. Also, I think there is a bootleg out there with songs from Slippery sessions...Game of the Heart, Never Enough, Deep Cuts The Knife. Maybe a few others.

Not sure about "hate", but I certainly do not like their brand or style. No big deal. Never liked Kroeger's vox or the god awful lyrics to many of their songs. They are an easy target for haters, though. They were pretty popular for a few years there. Someone told me that the more people love you, the more others will hate you. Comes with the territory.

Funny, I think most of their latter day output sounds like modern-era U2 or Coldplay. That may be why many fans don't take to it. For me, it's always about the songs. And nothing over the last handful of albums (including HAND) is all that memorable. Auto-tuned and somber reflective songs mostly, just without hooks. Especially on The Circle and What About Now.

Yes! JMac...you speak the truth! Love Eddie, but he's living in the past. Why do you need a label? Do you think this will generate airplay? Top 40? C'mon, put it out yourself. Or better yet, give it away for free with tickets to your show. In this new day and age, nobody cares about new music from older acts. It's the ugly truth. Sammy figured it out and now he's more than conte

Aerosmith - Get Your Wings through Draw The Line and again with Permanent Vacation through Get a Grip. Scorpions - Love Drive through Crazy World. Alice Cooper - Love It To Death through Billion Dollar Babies. Tom Petty - 1976 debut straight through 1985's Southern Accents. And for something more recent... Foo Fighters - Colour and Shape through Sonic Highways. Most consistent roc

I think it depends on the producer. I like some of Jimbo's work, but never thought it really stood out. Then again, I thought the last Queensryche album sounded just fine. If you're talking about today's top guys in any genre...like Max Martin, Shellback, Jon Brion, Butch Vig, etc. They certainly do have a distinct sound and style. I think having one of those guys at the helm is akin to ha
