I'll buy it no doubt, very rarely do they disappoint me. Needless to say I'm digging the new track, thanks for the heads up Les!

Many thanks for the heads up dude, my missus happens to be a big Orianthi fan. We're in for the Enmore gig.

Hard to ignore Jeff Keith's vocals, soon as I hear them it erases any trace of anything else. But agree, I hear the Lep vibe in the verses. I'm in regardless, love Tesla.

Mate I totally appreciate the quality on offer but that's far too proggy for me I'm afraid. I needs my 4x4 verse-bridge-chorus, just the way I'm built is all.

I don't know what it is about this band but since "Quid Pro Quo" landed in my mailbox they've been a guilty pleasure of mine. Really looking forward to "Big Red" arriving. Massive 80s-style sound, they've reinvented the wheel but made it their own. I think it's because I generally turn this stuff down that I like these guys. There's a pop sensibility about them as well,

Preface this with - holy shit how awesome is Utopia (still)! I used to go in there a lot when I was on the hunt for CDs but I was like a kid in a lolly shop there this afternoon, they have a great vinyl selection, it's a real throwback experience being able to paw through the shelves. Old school goodness. Tonight's playlist begins: Van Halen - OU812 Cold Chisel - East Bruce Springsteen

I wasn't into their swords'n'sandles vibe so I never got into them, which probably makes my 2c rather moot in this discussion so apologies if that's annoying. But for what it's worth, I used to stream Hard Radio a lot back in the late 90s and they kept playing this track "Demolition Alley", and I was surprised to be thinking 'hey, what's this, I like a Saxon song??'. Long story sh

Sweet, there's probably 100+ discs. PM me and we'll tee up a time, afternoons are best since I play comp golf in the mornings.

I'll prefix by saying they're all in great condition, some of the cases are a bit rough but the discs are A1... If you want 'em they're all yours. I'm not quite a third of the way through but I'm ditching tens of discs so far and the carnage continues. I don't have the time to list the bands and titles but so far they include (if this helps): Stun Leer Hard Rain Shadow Gallery Street

Great flick, and yes totally OTT stylised violence replete with doves scattering in slo-mo. This meme is taken from the scene where Agent Archer is hanging out in Castor Troy's rooftop denizen and has just been given some super duper drugs and finds himself socialising with the very gang members he's dedicated his career to taking down, while tweaking hard for the first time in his life.

I've started making a list of LPs I'd like to pick up and wow, even second hand vinyl is expensive. I'm clearly out of the loop.

I dig it but I'm a Nickelback tragic. Thought Chad was having vocal issues though so I'm surprised they've put something out.

More like he just needed a quick rack. Fair play but make a note that it doesn't make you sound any better, Don. Nothing against a bit of whiz now and again, but, yeah just sayin'. Mix didn't help either.

Kind've excited with my new acquisition: a Pro-Ject Elemental. It's entry level but it came bundled with the Phono Box E so my idiotic no-phono amp is getting the help it needs. Playlist so far: Dire Straits - Brothers In Arms The Last Vegas - Whatever Gets You Off (red 180 gram, NICE) Madonna - True Blue (guilty pleasure, the missus pulled that one out) Bad Company - Straight Shooter

Credit for not Protools'ing it out I guess, it's not as if he's ever going to make more of an effort so at least they're owning it. Good on 'em. I think someone else said it best: I'm way past due with this band. I still enjoy their 80s-90s output regularly so I'm not disappointed.

I listened to the single "Too Messed up and Drink" or whatever it's called and found nothing redeemable about it. I take it that's a/the dud track on the disc? To be fair I'm not a Jackyl pundit, don't think I've ever owned an album by them.

Big, full sounding rock album, exactly what my doctor ordered. I've missed this type of album, I get hints and bits from other albums these days but this is ticking boxes all over the shop. Tick, tick, boom!

...but then it doesn't. Ain't no Blood From Stone, but then time has marched on and nobody's got that kind of energy any more. Cest la vie. It's pleasant enough.

Deris' tenure in PC69 culminated in "Games People Play" which - and I stand to be corrected - was as good as Queensyrche's "Empire", even channeled it. I still spin it occasionally even now. And then he went on to make Helloween a monster - Rings, Oath, Raw, Ride, Rabbit, it was an unmatched metal peak. But take nothing away from PC69 post-Deris, Readman's inclusion gav

Good news re Stereoside, I've enjoyed their brand of post grunge. Now if you'll indulge me: every time I read one of your posts I see the new paragraph in my periphery and I automatically start reading "Looking back I guess..." and it's starting to make me twitch lol. Is there any chance you could put a break in there so I can see where you actual post finishes please? For exampl

...made me wonder what Chris DeGarmo is up to these days. Anyone ever seen/heard this??? The Rue - Love Song Not my thing but I can appreciate it's a stunning piece. Go family DeGarmo!

It quietly harks to Queensryche's 90s output, probably slotting in somewhere between "Promised Land" and "Hear In The Now" in vibe, to my ears at least. Certainly not as atrocious as anything post HITNF. This might just be a comfortably boring album to while away a work hour to. I'm not sure Tate's got the edge to return to any kind of Queensryche oomph but I get the impr

...would have been from England fans. He was universally revered as far as I recall, in cricket circles at least, even despite his hot temper and arrogant posture. The one thing Colin Hay will be jeering is the court ruling against Down Under, man what a palaver that was!

I'll admit to being very dubious, as always is the case when someone compares something to vintage Skid Row. And wow, this is great! I'm off to suss out their catalogue. Thanks for the heads up!

The re-recording actually drew me back to the album. Otherwise though, I'm not a big fan of re-recordings, not that I've heard so far anyway. Remasters on the other hand, I've enjoyed plenty, the Toto remasters Rock Candy did that I bought are superb. And Def Leppard's Pyro remaster has finally given me a decent version of the album - I went though vinyl, tape, and CD over the years, all of

Something about Tyler's style that I dig, but moreover those tracks don't sound too dissimilar (in parts) to what Rick Springfield just put out, and I thought I was going to hate that and it's become a real fave. Go figure.
