Agreed Peter, excellent album, their best since Slang for mine.

Absolute rubbish, I can't see why this would get put out at all but I'm not a Meat fan so I defer to the diehards.

What a shame these guys couldn't pump out second discs, respectively. Especially Endeverafter, I got the impression they'd built up significant buzz at the time, and fair play too because their brand was definitely worth buying. American Pearl - If We Were Kings Endeverafter - Baby Baby Baby

It's a thing, apparently, and whether it's school girl outfits or maids outfits or ... essentially these bands are all uniformly dressed and play some kind of rock music. Band-Maid is still the pick of the bunch for me but their sound is less metal and more rawk.

I read somewhere not too long ago (@Sludge probably) that a version of the band have been touring this year but I can't recall if it was the whole Bite Down Hard line-up. Certainly Paris up front though. Perhaps they're gauging crowd interest before committing to a record, dunno, purely speculation on my part.

The Poor - Who Cares Might depend on where you're from because these guys made not much more than a ripple outside of Australia. Epic album start to finish. More Win Waiter Please Man Of War Full Album They had a brief renaissance about five or six years ago and put out two more solid albums while touring a bit but Who Cares can't ever be matched. Sensational live act as well, I'

I'm with you Baron, I'd never heard of the band when Coup de Grace came out, loved it, best album of its ilk I'd heard in years! Immediately sought out their back catalogue and none of it clicked and I too wondered if they'd have floated my boat back in the day when that was all I listened to. To be honest I don't think I would have, just a bit too generic for my ears, even back then.

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

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.

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

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?
