I know it's filled with ballads, but I always liked this album. You Better Wait and Young Hearts are great upbeat songs. Some of the ballads are actually fantastic - FTLOSM, Missing You, Anyway (a song written about his days in Journey). I guess you can say it's a grower. I remember feeling disappointed in 1994 when I bought it. But grew to really love some of the songs and Steve's vocals.

From the official press release: "The goal for their new album was to have a heavier and updated version of the original Hardline sound. Think debut album, 1992's “Double Eclipse” updated for the 21st Century"

x1000 My point exactly HS. I don't have a problem with a band changing or evolving, but these press releases insist on tying the new stuff to the old when it is anything but. I remember thinking the same thing when I read the PR for HOL's Precious Metal. Stop dragging the classic stuff through the new mud. I'm glad we have youtube and Spotify these days, so I can check it out before bu

I don't take anything away from ADV as a songwriter or producer. With many of these new iterations of classic bands, it comes down to capturing the original sound and merging it with updated production. Night Ranger, Mr. Big, Danger Danger, and Whitesnake have done it with superb results in recent years. Bands like Hardline, House of Lords, etc. seem to be more content moving into a differ

Also on the front page here: http://www.melodicrock.com/latest-news And I agree. Definitely just a continuation of Danger Zone, as opposed to any connection to DE. Dark and heavy, the song isn't terrible. I just know to be skeptical of anything Johnny does these days. Mostly just mediocre hard rock with very little to do with the original sound. Also grown tired of the press release for

I like the song...probably better than most of Dig In Deep. Hoping for a return to form on this album.

Toronto was good, but Heart is really on another level. Even if we just look at that mid-80's period, Heart had great songs, performances, and production. Oh, and Ann Wilson.

The first half is good and has some nice Springsteen-ish rock moments. Irish Exit is a nice little rocker, but mostly just a re-write of 3 Kids From Brooklyn off of his Sycamore Meadows album. After that...snooze. Mexican Coke is a throwaway, Can We Just Not Talk About Last Night is just bad, and Spark:Lost is a slowed down exact replica of Stay Gold. And don't get me started on that funeral

Very cool stuff. Her last album had a sort of Stevie Nicks vibe to it. Really dug that one. Listened to the new one on Spotify just now. Definitely more poppy, but very good. If anyone out there knows or likes Neko Case or Lucinda Williams or Shelby Lynne, Lydia is in the same vein.

He sounds disengaged, as if he knows he can't sing the songs anymore so he has just accepted it now. Reminds me a lot of Vince Neil, although Vince does move around the stage a bit more than Don. They both sound like they'd rather be doing anything else. Oddly enough, I think the band sounds just as bad. Maybe it's the audio-by-phone, but the band sounds just as dreadful to me.

I think we're stretching the term AOR, but since we are I'd say they captured plenty of great (and some forgotten) 90s melodic rock albums. Good to see some love for Prisoners In Paradise. Agreed about Tyketto and would add these for consideration: 21 Guns Hardline Tall Stories Bad Co - Holy Water Bad English - Backlash Mitch Malloy

I don't get the "doesn't rock enough" argument either. Some of my fav Bon Jovi tunes are more mellow. Never cared if they rock or not. The problem isn't that it doesn't rock, it's that the song just isn't that good at all (obviously imo). I can't imagine many folks outside his most devout followers really caring about this song, similar to the last few lead singles. Nothing really

+1 The song is more of the same for me. Nothing all that good and very little to do with the band I once loved so much.

Good tune, much better than anything from the Field Trip EP. I would love to hear the unreleased album from 93. Someone should tell FNA Records. Seems like it would be right up their alley.

Hey adlofo, Just a note - under 2016, the Alice Cooper covers album turned into Hollywood Vampires and was released. Alice is apparently recording a follow up to Killer with the remaining members of the original AC band. Due out sometime in 2017. Thanks for keeping us up to date on new releases!

Meh, I know it's only a few seconds but sounds an awful lot like their recent "we won't back down" type first single. See: We Don't Run, Because We Can, We Weren't Born To Follow. I'll still wait to hear it in its entirety on Friday, but still...

Totally acceptable and no guilt at all. Sometimes an album doesn't click for me right away and I never go back. I can usually tell when something is a dud for me immediately or if it might warrant more listens. For me, some recent examples would be Phantom 5, Rival Sons (sorry Terry), and Steven Tyler's solo album. One time through each one and I know I'm not missing out on anything by neve

Been listening consistently since it was released. So far, my favorite album of 2016 and will be pretty hard to top song for song.

Recent interviews with Jon using phrases like "back to basics." Recorded in the same studio where they cut Runaway. Should be interesting to see if they can pull together one more decent rock album after the last couple of U2/Coldplay type pop records. Especially without Richie in the band.

Great album...Sultans too. Classic straight up hard rock sound. I'm not a fan of the last two more proggy releases either. Would love to have more like this!

Great read. Really about the genius of Mutt more than anything else. In Lou's book, he talks about the making of that album and how Mutt tried to get him to stretch his voice and do something more along the lines of Bon Scott. Lou was having none of it and I'm glad he pushed back. It might have had a poor effect on his voice in the long run.

Just ranking the songs best to worst or fav to least fav. Never would touch the actually order of the album.

Classic Rock posted this in honor of the anniversary: http://teamrock.com/feature/2016-08-03/def-leppard-s-hysteria-every-song-ranked-from-worst-to-best I'd probably have a hard time ranking the songs on what I consider one of the very few flawlessly perfect albums. Mine might look like this... 1. Hysteria 2. Animal 3. Gods of War 4. Pour Some Sugar 5. Run Riot 6. Love Bites 7.

Yep, that line is painfully obvious. The saddest part is that it's not even a great taped vocal. You figure if he's going to go so far as to lip sync, he'd do it to a better take!

So far, so good. 4 singles and the only clunker is the slow country ballad duet, Descending. The rest is pretty rocking, similar to The Spade, which I loved.
