It is what it is...California blues rock influenced by Zeppelin and the Yardbirds. Don't expect big melodies and hooks. The music is based on grooves. The only problem I have is that there are too many out there doing the same thing right now. California Breed (and BCC before them), Wolfmother, The Answer, Scorpion Child, even Europe is now on this bandwagon.

I think he means the Fuck EP they released with a few songs that creatively have the title, um, "fuck" in them.

I am a huge Green Day fan, but even I cannot justify this. RRHOF continues to baffle me. GD had one groundbreaking punk revival album and then several years later they hit big with American Idiot. Not sure that warrants induction on the first try. Meanwhile, as you have all pointed out, there are too many great and influential bands still not in. Priest, Maiden, Bon Jovi, Def Lep, Motley, J

Interesting way to put out new music. Buckcherry have a monthly subscription for their new EP of cover songs. Songs include Beast of Burden (Rolling Stones), Mama Kin (Aerosmith), Devil Inside (INXS), R'n'R Damnation (AC/DC), and I've Done Everything For You (Hagar/Springfield). Production is pretty thin, so don't expect too much. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V302UIUCCr8 http:

Carnal Knowledge is my fav Van Hagar disc. I rank it with 5150 as their two best albums. Great melodies and production. Classic Hagar. Balance is okay, but spotty. Parts are very good (Not Enough, Feelin', Take Me Back) and then parts are dreadful (Amsterdam, Big Fat Money). Both albums are far better than All Music gives credit for.

Eyes is excellent. A throwback to his earlier albums. Dirty Diamonds is pretty good as well. Some filler on there, but plenty of classic Coop.

I think you hit it on the head. 3/4 of it is great. There are a few songs that I always skip (Easy Does It, Absolution Blues, Waiting On You). Overall, it's still a classic album and severely underrated as a work from both men.

TK - my post was about Royal Blood. Rival Sons are a great band and very different than The White Stripes.

Lots of duds from iconic bands that I used to love: Tom Petty Bruce Springsteen U2 And the continued mediocrity that has become House of Lords.

Joining the ranks of amazingly mediocre acts like Imagine Dragons, The Script, and American Authors. I don't get it. I'm guessing his career will be closer to that of James Blunt more than anything else.

Sounds an awful lot like anything off their last two albums. Not bad, but not great either. It's okay. If they can come up with an album to rival Take It To The Limit, then I'm on board. Here's hoping.

Just like everything else, it's all subjective. Halestorm seems to be an above average modern rock band with roots in 80s rock and metal. Howard Benson produced their first two albums and if memory serves, Steve Whiteman from Kix was Lzzy's vocal coach back when she was younger. I like them because I can hear many of those 80s influence come through in the tunes. Especially on the debut

Thanks for posting. The last couple of Europe albums were very mediocre, imo. Nothing very memorable about any of the tunes. I hope this one is better.

I like it. Unfortunately, there are some very strange folks commenting below the video and it's very sad to read.

Sound is below average for an "official" live release. Sounds more like a sketchy bootleg in parts. Several songs have DC's vocals buried in the mix. Was not impressed.

I read a review where the critic wanted Sonic Highways to be a retooling of the Foo's sound. Not sure why. If it ain't broke... FF are one of the few straight up modern hard rock bands I still get excited about. They try new things and usually come out with great songs on each album. 20 years in and I feel they are far ahead of their peers from that era.

I posted about this about a week ago. I've lived with it now with multiple listens and I think it's the best album I've heard this year. I love Foo Fighters and this ranks as one of their finest. Great concept, no filler. Just excellent songs and pristine production.

Been watching the Foo Fighters doc for their new album, Sonic Highways. First class stuff. So far, from the tunes they've played and samples on their site, this might just be my album of the year. 8 songs, old school...not a whole lot of room for filler. It's out Tuesday, so I'll give it some time, but right now it sounds very promising.

17 tracks on the regular version is a bit much and of course there IS filler. 10 or 11 tracks sound nearly identical in style and tone. Not to say I don't like some of it. Most of it is pretty good. But too many average tracks that tell me nobody knew when to tell these guys to stop recording. There is a point after track 12 where I thought the album was never going to end.

I agree. I expected it to be at least as good as What The Hell, but it's not. Plenty of just average tunes and that ballad at the end is a snooze.

LOL...I definitely think it's more of a reflection of me and my musical tastes than it is on the artists. Still, most aging acts just don't deliver the goods anymore with new music. When they perform live, they are fantastic, though. That's certainly one thing that gets better with age.

TP and Seger...both boring. As I said before, the older they get, the further they get from being able to write a hook. Springsteen and Mellencamp belong in the same group for me. Loved them back then, but now the music has no magic anymore.

I'll hold out hope that this will be much better than their last three. I found very little memorable about Overload, Human Nature, or Hope. They sounded tired and it came across in the songs. These samples sound pretty promising.

Thoughts now that it's been out for a few days? Pretty good continuation of Worlds Collide, I think. Marcie sounds fantastic, as always. It's softer than I expected, but the quality of the songs is not an issue. She Can't See Me is a great melodic anthem. Maybe one of the finest of the year. It will be interesting to hear part 2 in 2015 and digest both parts when they're available as a
