I could spend hours on this topic so I won't bore you the exposition and say this: Don't skimp on processor, stick with an Intel Core i3/i5 (steer well clear of Atoms and Celerons), and whatever you buy make sure you swap a solid-state drive into it. I just did exactly that for my father and it cost me $AUD700 and it runs Windows 10 without issue. Good luck, and have fun!

For me the new album is probably their strongest album, if perhaps a little too poppy at times but its upbeat and happy and they don't seem to so mopey all the way through - that's a big plus for me, I find this band very whoa-is-me.

I'm only new to Cheap Trick (that's a long story) but since discovering them I reckon "Woke Up With A Monster" is their best, certainly the most instantly accessible for me. Dig the new one too.

It's probably because of my job: I've needed to know Windows for 20+ years now. But beyond that I like the flexibility of building, modifying and upgrading my machines when I want/need to. And now that SSDs are readily available it's completely changed the game with boot/load times no longer being a factor. I run two Gigabyte BRIX machines at home, one as a media PC (8.1) and one as a lab (1

Reminds me of Vains Of Jenna, if you're digging the LT4 style then give Vains a go as well: Vains Of Jenna - Mind Pollution Enjoy.

Dude the Aussie iTunes have four track samples available, and from what I hear I'm calling it their strongest in...well, since the debut. "Supernova", "I've Got A Gun" and "Keep On Waiting" rock! 17 bucks though, fark, what's up iTunes? Haven't gouged us punters enough yet? Sheesh.

Tripped over his ego ;-) He's using a big throne-looking thing similar to what Dave Grohl used when he busted his leg. I've seen a couple of the YouTube clips and it's hard to tell if they're having any fun, but reports from folks who've attended the shows say it's a whole different story watching them live.

I thought this emo-grunge had run its course but Hands are putting out a great version of it, very The Used esque. And while we're on great new Aussie bands, check out Ragdoll's new one "Back To Zero", quality hard rock.

My apologies but yes, I have lumped them all into the Kuwaii Metal genre. Seems its a thing now, I was merely trying to keep up with the lingo the kids use these days ;-) But yes I agree, otherwise it is something akin to apples and oranges if sticking strictly to the sonic output.

Was hoping for a review of sorts since I don't own it but I acknowledge your comment regarding Rock Candy, I can't recall being disappointed by any of the releases I have purchased.

Just me? Babymetal have better management perhaps, but BAND-MAID have superior songs. Not a fan of this kuwaii metal malarkey but as others have said they get full credit for getting themselves noticed.

I passed on concert tickets to Skid Row and Warrant back in the late 80s... Epic. Fail. <face palm emoji>

Love these guys, I have all three albums and spin them regularly. The debut S/T has a few poppy moments and if I'm not mistaken there's one (two?) tracks that Kelly Clarkson covered and took to the mainstream. The follow-up Stop The World goes into a hard rock direction sound-wise but preserves the pop sensibilities for the most part (some tracks remind me of Gun circa Swagger). And the thir

Awesome, just watched a few of their clips and they're all great. Nice one.

How can a band so notoriously punctual team up with a someone as notoriously unreliable as Axl Pose? Not to mention his vocal chords will melt after three songs. I concur: absolute shambles.

I've done both upgrade and fresh install and the fresh install runs much better, which makes sense to me because its not trying to dovetail onto an existing image, but moreover I've run the same hardware with W7 upgraded to W10 and W10 from scratch, and W10 is much quicker when installed from scratch. What I'm not sure about is whether your free upgrade can be achieved with a fresh install so

His pipes are adequate enough and his attitude is pure Acca Dacca! Perhaps he'd be a bit naked without his six string strapped on but they could have him play rhythm and turn him down in the mix...or go the other way and have him duel with Angus, that'd be TOPS! It's only ten shows, may as well sign off with an Aussie, no?

Yeah I lost interest very quickly, what's with all the staring and introspection when we don't even know how the characters tick? Tiresome. Oh and any show with Ray Romano's voice pretty much kills itself for me, I find the man's tone so g-r-a-t-i-n-g, feels like he's about to whine about something every time he opens his mouth. It's a fail from me.

Tough crowd if Treat bored you. I listen to a few different things, see if these float your boat: Jon Stevens - Woman Royal Republic - Weekend Man Electric Mary - Down To The Bone The Pretty Reckless - I'm Going To Hell We Are Harlot - S/T Shinedown's last three albums are great, if you're into post-grunge. Andrew Watt's EP "Ghost In My Head" is great for something a bit blu

Not heard/read anything myself, but this will be one of those very rare occasions where I buy sight unseen(heard). Coup De Grace was an awesome surprise for me, and I was like you in that I'd never had the band on my radar to that point. Here's to it!

Appeared on the Transformers soundtrack, I loved the track instantly and went deep diving into their catalogue....but nothing else stuck. At least I have that song. This Moment Also discovered The Used and Taking Back Sunday from that soundtrack but I grew tired of them almost as quickly as I grew out of that whole emo thing. Actually that's not so true about The Used, I have a few of t

Never heard of them until this morning and watched these: Tommy-Gun Underwear Loving it, I've gone and bought their first two albums and digging both. They play a style that I've been wishing Panic! At The Disco and Danko Jones would both start putting out again. Any fans?

Guessing I'm a bit late to the party here (understatement?) but I've just spun up Sign In Please for the first time (ever) and while it's that good old fashioned AOR-Rock that I thought I'd grown out of, it's really, really good. I'm digging it anyway.

Have to agree with others that this is the best place to start. Then grab Scream, Spooked and Anything Worth Doing, all specky albums. This is off Spooked: Die With Your Dreams Epic! Enjoy getting to know the band, they've been a personal fav of mine for a long time.

Sounds good thanks for the heads up. I quite liked the debut, it was good if not great, this sounds like a step up.

Didn't realise these dudes were still a going concern, so this is not only a surprise that's it's coming out, but surprisingly unrubbish. I haven't really liked anything they've done bar their lightning in a bottle "Kryptonite" so it's a nice surprise all round. Check it: 3 Doors Down - Do It In The Dark
