It's definitely a project, not a band. I like some of the songs. Deen sounds fantastic. The lyrics are pretty cheesy, but I don't mind it that much since the music and performances are good.

I'm sure that's part of the plan. Still means we're another couple of years away from new material with Joel. Would have been better if we got a batch of new songs with this DP tribute as a bonus disc. That might have made an excellent fan package.

What an unbelievable waste. And I love those songs and that era of Purple. Just don't need this...I don't think anyone anywhere does. Clock's ticking on DC. This was not a wise way to spend the last 3 years.

A very underrated gem. I love some of the softer tunes like Too Many Tears and Can't Go On. There's also some nice blues rockers like You're So Fine. I'll have to dig this out and have a listen again!

Could be mistaken Terry. I thought I read somewhere that Doug contributed to some of the writing prior to Joel joining in August.

I agree about Love Will Set You Free. Not a great song or first choice for single. I expect something pretty similar...meaning the writing team for GTBB and Forevermore was still in place for most of this new album. Should be a nice riff heavy rock song. Here's hoping.

Angel and Nostradamus did nothing for me. I do like Redeemer. I think it's their best since reuniting.

1 - Backstreet Symphony 2 - Laughing On Judgement Day 3 - Everything else For me, it's always been about the strength of those first two albums. Fantastic songs. After that, the fall off is dramatic.

First off, I don't believe they'd refuse when/if it happens. But if they did, it would be a great middle finger to that b.s. institution! Problem I see is that they won't even get considered for a few more years yet. Same as Bon Jovi and others from that era. They deserve it a whole hell of a lot more than Green Day or Abba. My 2 cents.

Much like Sebastian Bach's last album, it's modern melodic metal with a great voice. It's okay, but I prefer JSS's more melodic rock side.

He stated in an interview a while back that nobody is really waiting around anticipated new Styx music. I sort of agree with him, especially when I look back at the last couple of Styx album and also the state of the business right now. On the other hand, I'd love him to put out another batch of originals with Jack as Shaw Blades or even get a rocking side project going as Jack did with Revol

Agreed, Forevermore took me by surprise. I was not expecting an epic, classic Whitesnake album so late in DC's career. Let's hope Joel can bring that same energy to the new album.

Kris, I agree with you and since it is your opinion, I think the word "dreadful" is accurate if that's how you feel. I felt that way about Bag of Bones. Just my opinion. These two new songs do nothing for me as, like you, I'm more of a fan of the commercial sound. I also completely understand why die hard fans will like War of Kings. It does harken back to the pre-TFC days. J

Strangers in the Night is like a live greatest hits. Essential. Lights Out is the finest studio album. Start with those two.

I'd be more excited if this was an archive live release from the original band from back in 77-78. One new studio album in the last 17 years and a live album from 2013 doesn't get me too excited about VH.

Amen to that! Production issues, flaws, and all...Adrenalize was the last truly great "album" from DL. I liked parts of Slang, Euphoria, and X. Sparkle Lounge was a horrible misstep, imo. These guys need to come up with one more bit of greatness. I hope they do, but I'm not holding my breath.

I'd actually argue that this is exactly chasing trends. Right now, in rock, the popular trend is DP/Led Zep-style. Just ask The Answer, Rival Sons, Wolfmother, Scorpion Child, Kyng, and a thousand others. They even nabbed the producer du jour to get the sound down. Not really too different than going from Swedish metal band Force to hiring Kevin Elson and turning to Bon Jovi-esque pop metal

I feel the same about this as I did about Bag Of Bones. Dull, hookless, modern-day Deep Purple stuff. Hey, everybody's doing it, so why not Europe, right?! It's not that bad, it's just not that good either. I think I listened to BOB a few times, shelved it and never listened again. I probably won't give this one that much of a chance. Sounds like ground they've already covered and I'm jus

Not necessarily for everyone, but since Beth Hart is on the list, I'd add Grace Potter and the Nocturnals under TBD. New album due sometime this spring.

Just reading this story posted over at Sleaze Roxx. Bas is tragically insane. Not sure what Sweet said that was so bad. He seemed to have only spoken truth! Twitter tantrums seem to be a regular occurrence for Sebastian Bach, with Stryper frontman Michael Sweet being the most recent victim of the former Skid Row singer's anger. "Dear @michaelhsweet : shut your mouth. Before I shu

Black Tiger and Earthshaker are arguably their finest. After that, I'd check out In Rock We Trust and Down For the Count (more commercial hard rock, but worth a listen). Endangered Species is also very underrated as it did sort of return to their core sound, as did Facemelter. Ten is by far my favorite, but I understand why purists may not like it. Tons of outside writers and slick produ

I agree with that sentiment Bruce, but the Beatles were/are much more than #1 hits and album sales. They changed culture back in the 60s. They changed fashion, they changed FM radio, they changed the live music industry, they helped pioneer the music video format, they were responsible for new production innovations (ADT, feedback, loops, overdubbing, etc.), and most importantly they changed
