I am very producer orientated like others have said here. Zito is a good example of that as is Bruce Fairbairn, Olson and people like Andy Johns, Bob Rock, Mutt Lange and a few others. I remember not knowing much about melodic rock back in the early 90s as I was more into Metal (Maiden, Scorps, Saxon, Manowar, Metallica, Sabbath, Priest, Dio), then I went to a record fair and bought a few CDs

Still like the album myself. There are several great tracks as folks have said but what I liked was the change in direction to a more polished/modern approach....and to a good singer. Sammy can do little wrong vocally and when that was coupled with the rest of the band that was me happy. I probably prefer FUCK and especially Andy Johns sound but I agree that Balance is the best sounding Hagar

I think this is their best one since World Upside Down and only three listens in. It is different and just those major nods back the way add up to a strong formula - love the intro to the album as that just sets the whole thing up for me. Really nice one to these ears but I have liked all of their second era albums too - each has merits and all have James singing so that makes me listen all th

I often look at the make up and non-make up periods as very different to each other - could say 70s vs the rest as well. I like both and would put Creatures as my most listened too, Love Gun etc....I have to say that I did listen to Crazy Nights a lot when it came out and same with Hot in the Shade but these have not aged as well as say Revenge...always have a soft spot for Asylum too.......

The voice is always the main draw for me on HoL - the first three are amazing albums for different reasons - my preferences are for Sahara and to slightly lesser extent Demons Down - I utterly love the production on DD and in particular Tommy Aldridge on drums. This is one album where I think the production raises the album to almost stellar. World Upside Down is close to the top too - great t

What an interesting thread! Not really going to have a go at choices as it is all personal taste but I have to say no Maiden album with Bruce should be on there and esp. not SIT or SSOASS - these two are classics though maybe not quite up with Powerslave.....no disappointment for me though. X Factor or the Blaze albums for me were bought on day of release and rarely played after that - just

The drum kit did break on this and it is retained on the bluray. Vince struggles throughout but as others say he has never been a singer live - he could do a show but he has never been a great singer. On this bluray he misses half the word or just mumbles through them - it is actually quite funny. But you know that was Crue - they really have not changed much over the years but Vince really does

Looks like they don't have money to include the debut which is a shame. It would be nice to get a remaster of these in one place so I am up for it if they are not just sticking it all in a new box with nothing having been done to it. I would assume that there is more to it than just a re-boxing - hopefully a new booklet as well. Shame they cant also apply Marcie's vocals to the tunes she did n

Not seen it as in the UK but Lambert is one of the best singers around at the moment - not for everyone but he fits Queen sound very well. I just wish his solo career went back to the direction of his first CD which had a lot of good stuff on it. I remember watching Idol and seeing him early on in it and being blown away though he came over quite stage singer based due to his background then he d

I Believe (Clearmountain mix in the UK) is probably my favourite Jovi song so I would go with that. I am in UK so we really never hear these much at all. Others: Lay Your Hands On Me Hey God Keep The Faith Good Guys Don't Always Wear White Dry County Everyday Have a Nice Day This Ain't a Love Song We Weren't Born to Follow A lot of these were bigger hits here in the UK than in th

Saw them in Glasgow last year supporting someone else and they were very retro - really good live. They sort of came over a quite UFO in places - or that is what I came away thinking about there general sound. Think they were supporting Kadaver (who were also excellent).

Immense track. I personally love the sound and those harmony vocals and especially the outro bit at the end are sublime. Very much looking forward to the full CD when it hits.

Melodic bliss surely! Excellent stuff and what a voice - more than that though this is lovely tune that has great music, well produced and makes me keen to hear the rest! Ace!

I like a bit of thrash too. Megadeth, Slayer, Metallica, Anthrax and Testament are all up there and a play them a lot and see them live when I can. Annihilator have a few good tracks on each album - Alison Hell is a great one form Neverland and there are good tunes on most fo their disks - they just suffered a bit from quality and consistency issues. Other than maybe Megadeth and Testament thrash

The first three are classics to my ears - Sahara is maybe the best of them with Demons Down just ahead of the ST. From there I have always liked what they do because at the core they have great players and a great singer - production has never been up to the first three and especially Demons Down which I think had the best sound. World Upside Down is a great album that I still play a lot and m

Only just gave this a listen on Spotify and I have to say this is a decent album. Decent singer and players with good tunes - I like that is a little more 'metal' (sort of) in terms of the guitars. Makes it a bit harder edged and I like the direction they are taking with the music.

I think my copy on CD is maybe a mix of both as it was called The Works - Wall of Silence and had a lot of tracks on it (it's in a storage box so cant get at it easily at the mo) - maybe a compilation of songs? Either way it is a great CD of tunes - little in the way of filler.

I just got a Denon DP-200USB for xmas and pretty pleased with it as an easy to use, easy to move, easy to connect option that will play from anything with a USB. I still have my old Dual but it has a preamp and through my Yamaha - sits in the loft linked up but rarely up there in the winter as too cold. So the Denon fits in well and works really well - not that much of a difference with my old Du

Interesting views folks. Mine is different and biased. I was a big Winger fan at the time and loved the Hill production on their CDs. I knew nothing much about Melodic rock at the time other than I loved Winger as I saw them live with the Scorps (lifeling Scorps fan) bt most of my other music was metal like Maiden, Priest, Saxon, Dio and Sabbath (also a bit of Whitesnake too of course). So af

Sonically it cant have the power/production of the original as it did not have many, many thousands of dollars chucked at it Geffen at the wheel or indeed Olsen etc producing the shit out of it with months worth of time spent on it so I can live with that for sure. I think its a great version, done well and in a far lower register than the original....which is weird when she is a lass and DC m
