+1 for iTunes, it's not difficult and there are plenty of how-tos on the net that will be better than me trying to write it down, and no doubt getting steps wrong. An interesting quirk is if you're only after a specific set of lyrics or a song structure, you can only work in 1-second blocks, which on the surface may seem fine, but it can cut out or leave in a surprising amount once you start p

Appreciate your opinion dude, and thanks to you I've now learned that they have five albums. So you prefer "Antidote", interesting, I'm going to go seek out the first three so I know what you know, nice one.

I've been listening to their follow-up "Locked & Loaded" for a while now and it hasn't really grabbed but for a couple of tracks, but I decided to travel back to the above this evening and, well, wow, there's a bunch of amazing tracks right in the middle of it: Fault Line In A Hurry Stay Banquet For A Starving Dog Ransom Perhaps its just my mood tonight but they are excell

The new tracks on this were fantastic, I still play this regularly and dig them all. I really wanted their next album to be along those lines but it didn't happen. +1 for Paramour Sessions, excellent album for the most part, I've got "Crash" in a couple of my current playlists.

Yeah I enjoyed both albums, I think the debut was better but it's been sooooo long since I've listened to either of them. Definitely a solid band follow-up to Corabi's Crue affiliation. Saw Corabi and Kullick in ESP a few years ago, what a great show, solid performers both. Has anybody heard the live Union albums? I'm going to have to dig these out again now!

Yeah I'm in that camp Scott, the "how it wents" and the "coulda beens" are tiresome - and I'm guilty of joining in on them occasionally; VH is what it is and we either suck it up or change the channel. It's right up there with Guns'n'Roses reunion rumours lol. Regarding a live release, I got to see them a couple of years ago and that was good enough, but I might change my

Yeah same here Dave, no complaints per se but nothing outstanding. Their last album went along the same lines for me as well, although "Leader Of The Broken Hearts" was a stand out. Maybe I'll revisit it while I struggle through this.

Funny, I got a Darkness vibe from it straight away as well. I dig it, thanks for posting.

Read that today, it's a 3-disc reissue including the remastered album plus a 2-disc live show from the Defenders tour. My fav JP disc so I'll be picking this up, if only for the memories.

I really enjoyed this but it fell out of my rotation and I don't recall why, might revisit it again.

By all accounts he's a bit of a donut, so if I were Angus and co. I'd piss him off and get on with the job, because that's how they operate and why compromise that now after all these years??!!!?. They've been a no-mess-no-fuss band since day dot and at this late stage of their career I don't see a reason to make time for shenanigans. Take Wright or Slade back out, or that dude from the film

Agreed, really enjoyed the "Killing..." remaster, the rest aren't much chop though.

In a rare moment this afternoon I thought I'd fire up some of my old Mega faves (Extinction, Youth, Cryptic), but found the only versions I have are the remasters that Dave decided were such a great idea to do...think it was '04? Anyway, it reminded me of how he ripped the guts out of them, the drums sound thin, the solos sound obviously spliced, there really is nothing to enjoy about them at

Ozzmosis has a place in time for me, so I dig it more for the music than for the memories so it rates top 3 Ozzy albums for me, but someone else mentioned "No More Tears" so I made a note of spinning up the remaster when I got home from work this arvo - awesome! That's gonna get a spot on the iPhone. So thanks for that, the to-and-from train session gets some classic tunes tomoz!

Listening to it as I type and first impressions are that I love it, I thought this was the type of rock I'd grown out of but there I go. Huh. Super voice though, it reminds me of how good he made Lynch Mob sound...and that's a whole other conversation. Anyway, here's to a full album if there's one in the works, it's good stuff.

I was a big fan of Johnson during his early Shield career when he was pure speed, with movement in the air, but as he progressed into the Aussie squad he started losing his control when under pressure, so he eased his pace in favour of accuracy, and to compensate he resorts to soften batsmen up...just a spectator's opinion. But with that said his bouncer has become very accurate as well. I ca

So incredibly unlucky, its a one in a bazillion. Thoughts to the Hughes and Abbott families, very sad. Looking ahead it'll be interesting to see what Mitchell Johnson does this summer, intimidating batsmen is his only weapon and he's the incumbent quickie. Mmmm, interesting times ahead.

By that I mean does it lower levels on the 'louder' tunes to match the 'quieter' tunes, or the other way around? I've got a couple of albums that I simply haven't been able to level up, one in particular, Foreigner's "Unusual Heat", has sounded so quiet on every format I've owned except for the original cassette I had it on back in the day. Another is The Angels' "Howling"

Ah, yeah but Mike wasn't involved and Eddie was off chops, and while the VH bros are as coy as ever, something tells me things have settled down ten years later. So bringing Mike and Sammy back in and switching Wolfie to rhythm/lead hasn't been attempted, and remains my castle in the sky.

F--kin' pisses me off that we get slugged like this down under, doesn't cost them any more to distribute the media. And they wonder why people won't stump up for music these days. Make it 10 bucks like the rest of the world and I'll buy to my heart's content, but 19 bucks... >(

Not that I care so much, anything VH related in the last decade has been frought with speculation and I became tired of it long ago. Anyone interested in a live package? I went to see them in Sydney on their last tour, it was a quality show despite being marred by sound issues but I'm not sure it was good enough to relive on disc. Maybe.

Listening to "Million Miles An Hour" for the first time, and it's just a straight copy of "Because Of You" with a few different inflections. WTF?!!? I just espoused my love of the band a few topics down and here I am listening to them rip themselves off. Oh dear... Is this why people hate them and I haven't noticed it before...? I'm not sure I want to know the answer

Yeah sorry dude, can't do the ballads. Totally agree with "This Afternoon" and "Rockstar" as cool tracks, but yeah nah happy to ditch the ballads. Horrific. Ok I don't mind "Photograph", as weird as that may sound. I'd take Dark Horse over Reasons simply because Chad put some solo guitar work of into it; was nice to hear more than the drab drone of post grunge
