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

Agree Marc. I wasn't really a fan of their first two. I'm not really a fan of that kind of modern metal. Modern Vintage has much more in common with Cheap Trick than anything else. I'm really loving this one.

Alt country song carrying on from his EP last year. His touring partner, Ryan Adams produced the album and it's due out in February 2015. Definitely won't appeal to many around here. Like him or not, he certainly doesn't follow any trends. This is 70s singer/songwriter stuff in the vein of Gram Parsons or maybe even Jackson Browne's more folksy music.

Always nice when any magazine covers a band like Jellyfish. Sturmer has surfaced from time to time. He's collaborated with Bleu and Bleu's side project L.E.O. (ELO tribute). He also worked with Rooney on their sophomore album, Calling The World. Worth tracking down...Manning's 2006 solo album, Land of Pure Imagination. Very much in the Bellybutton/Spilt Milk style. Excellent power pop.

Listening to Eddie Trunk, he mentioned that Sammy, Mike, and Jason have been touring for a while now playing tons of old VH and LZ stuff. That's where the idea came from. Word is Bonham left California Breed to focus on this project. Hadn't heard yet that they roped in Page.

For those that may not know, Bob Lefsetz is a popular music critic/blogger in the U.S. Every now and then, he breaks from criticizing the industry to recommend some music. Sometimes old, sometimes new. Here's what he had to say about one of my favorite albums of the 90's: Palookaville: You’re not gonna listen to this record. But it’s the best Todd Rundgren album you’ve never hear

The eponymous debut is an all time classic along with Lean Into It. After that it becomes a matter of taste. I'd start with these: Bump Ahead What If Hey Man You can also check out one of the 500 live and compilation albums to get a flavor for some of the band's latter day material.

Because The Night - 10000 maniacs (Patti Smith/Bruce Springsteen) Another Bruce one...Blinded by the Light and For You by Manfred Mann. All Along the Watchtower by Hendrix...never knew that was originally written and recorded by Bob Dylan. Downtown Train by Rod Stewart is a cover of a Tom Waits song.

Last I heard, he had recorded two new albums. One more traditional rock and one rock opera. He was shopping them around, but no labels took it to my knowledge.

Very sad, indeed. I've recently been using his Never Too Late album as I train for my first marathon. It was one of my favorites of 2013 and has tons of inspiring tunes. I created a playlist last week of some of my favorite JJ songs. Not really all the obvious hits, but some of my favorite vocal moments from the man. I guess it will stand as my tribute: Everybody's Got a Broken Hear

Same here. Abysmal effort, especially compared to their last two which I rank among the best of the past several years. Fallon said the new one was influenced by Pearl Jam's No Code. That could explain why I don't like it. No Code was a terrible PJ album.

Agreed. If I had to look back, I'd question most of the direction post-Crush. This thread should have been "The direction Bon Jovi should have taken with Bounce...or Lost Highway...or The Circle...or What About Now".

NJ is my favorite Bon Jovi album. Stick To Your Guns is one of my favorite BJ songs. The album sold a gazillion records and still sounds great even today. IMHO, they got it right and would never need to change a thing.

Seen them both live recently and I have to say that Sebastian Bach right now is still the better vocalist live. At least the show I saw, he was spot on, hitting everything old and new. The only issue is that Bas is an a-hole of a front man. He literally started three different fights with audience members during the first half of the set. It was very odd. I caught Skid Row with Solinger a

From Guy's FB page: Hey UC Fans! Guy Allison here. As is the case in many artistic endeavors, we have some scheduling conflicts that have set us behind our own self imposed schedule. My touring schedule with the Doobies and Bruce's business schedule with his other creative ventures are usually aligned and easy to work within. However, this last month, Bruce has come down with what app

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.
