Gave it one spin this morning, wasn't as taken by it immediately as their previous albums but there's some great music there that needs further digestion. Certainly less pop sensabilities this time around, plus it's got bigger kuhunas, and I'm perfectly ok with that. "Knock The Lights Out" did stand out as one if the lighter moments. I'm a fan of the band so I'll persist, it'll n

Not too many highlights for me but I'm enjoying the few that have stuck: The Darkness (really surprised by this, good stuff) The Dead Daisies (much stronger than the debut, kudos Crabs) We Are Harlot (solid rock record) Knock Out Kaine (minus a couple of tracks this is great, Electric Boys vibe) Kickin' Valentina (first half of this is enjoyable) There's a couple of others that aren't s

Love it, one of the best surprises of the year for me. I found their debut a bit ho hum despite Jon Stevens' vocals but this is a far superior long player. I reckon they'd be great live. Go Crabs!

Dog Eat Dog is one of the best albums of the era IMO, I can still easily listen almost all the way through - don't know about you folks but I can't stand that Hollywood track, I've always skipped it, and when I went digital I omitted it completely, terrible song. Anyhow, I really struggled with Ultraphobic and Belly, but when LIVE 86-97 came out I started to appreciate those tracks in a live s

Didn't he blow his voice out in some irreversible way, and that's why they pulled the pin? He sounds pretty strong here, perhaps I misheard/read that little tidbit.

Have to agree on both counts, the mid-late 90s were bereft of solid MR releases for me, but I recall this was definitely a highlight. I'm going to have to dig it out again now. Btw do you remember Victory's "Voiceprint"? That was another highlight from that era, solid as a rock that album. If you haven't heard it then track it down, cheers.

Yep its a solid rock record for sure, but have to agree that its not as good as NAM. I must go back and listen to Hear! now, I don't remember "Road of a Thousand Dreams", and I actually don't rate it, but I loved "Rockin' Horse". Any ideas why they re-recorded "Road..."? Its a weak track for mine but I'm only a casual Trixter fan at best.

Had never heard of this band until a couple of days ago when I caught some samples online, and from there I had to own it! I'm here-nor-there about nostalgia rock, as you put it, but these guys are great!

Didn't think I was going to like it, but, I really like it. Musically it's definitely their strongest album, and Hawkins' vocals annoy me the least. Win-win.

Ameeericaaa - F--K YEEEAAH! Love that movie lol. Kudos for sticking their nose into someone else's business for the greater good, here's hope there's follow through and its not just back swing. I suspect Sepp's Bladder is just the start of the game's proverbial organ failure in global terms, but a full clean out of FIFA is a good start nonetheless. Endemic match fixing in Europe and player/r

Free and easy to use. It's been a while since I've used it but I recall it has some effects built in as well as the core file trimming capability; fade in/fade out, volume +/-, and such.

Can't believe I'm saying this, but, I think I've finally grown tired of Helloween. To be fair I only tuned in to the band when Deris came on-board and the triumvirate of Better Than Raw, The Dark Ride and Rabbit something-something stand as my favourites - enjoyed Rings and Oath but only in fits and spurts, "Before The War" and "Perfect Gentleman" for the win there. And,

Well maybe I need to give it another listen then, clearly it wasn't very memorable because I can't recall a bar of it right now but I've had a lot of music come and go recently. The older I get, the less patient I am.

Yeah I could barely get through a couple of songs, it's terrible. They need to rebadge and reach out for a new batch of fans rather than drag the Hinder moniker further down. Take It To The Limit stands as their pizza resistance I'm afraid. And while I'm at it, Saliva need to do the same! I'd put Survival Of The Sickest next to Hinder's TITTL But not only has the quality of their output

I'd rather they get together under a new moniker and make new music....but this time without a hopeless junky. Oh the irony lol.

Yeah I thought the first Avengers was a bit messy so it sounds like that's continued. Mind you I'm only a casual fan of the Marvel Universe - did love Guardians and the Iron Mans but the rest were ho-hum. Somewhat ironic that I dig AOS I suppose, cest la vie.

Perhaps in the minority but far from alone on this dude, Paris' vocals for the win. He even improves the Davidson material IMO, check out "Long Way To Live" if you haven't.

If its possible not to give anything away, does the movie take the Agents series into account at all? I realise Agent Colsen is the only link but the series liberally refers to the events of The Avengers (for obvious reasons) so am wondering if it goes the other way.

I'm a server tech but I imagine games translate; what you're describing sounds like a profile issue, in other words, when your son logs into his current account, all his game settings etc are aligned with what is known as his 'profile'. So in short, what you need to do is transfer or copy the user profile to the new account. I haven't tried them but I believe Win8 has some built-in tools to d

Couldn't agree with you more dude, Bite Down Hard was their best, I really liked Boys In Heat for what it was but BDH was far superior. But most of all I don't think Dizzy Dean's scream/squeal is anywhere near relevant in 2015. Same goes with Tom Keiffer and Mark Slaughter, their lower register singing voices are just fine so I don't know why they bother persisting with the squeal, its so gra

My favourite Ratt album behind Infestation. I'm obviously not a fan of the band's original material save a few tracks here and there. I think the lack of their usual bombast ticked the right boxes for me. So I'm sure you'll appreciate the irony that I really enjoyed them when they visited Sydney a few years back supported by Winger, none of the infamous vocal hassles and drunken-mess antics.

Gee really? I rate the new Trek reboots, and far from not making sense I found they made perfect sense......but I don't remember the originals at all. I'm sure I've seen them but other than faces and names I don't recall any of the content.

If you haven't seen it then give it a watch, it delves into how he back flipped on his own ethos when he rejigged the original films. And you and I agree to agree!

Geez its been a loooong time...outside of the best-of I got the most longevity out of A Little Ain't Enough, "Sensible Shoes" for the win. I really dug "She's My Machine" off the follow-up but don't recall the rest of the album being much chop.

That's pretty cool, picking up where they left off with New Audio Machine which for mine was a great album. I wasn't really a fan back in the day other than "Rocking Horse" but I really enjoyed NAM.

Now that you've got me thinking about it.... To generalise I'll say its the singer for me, its pretty rare that the musicality of a song can make up for crap vocals. One exception, off the top of my head, would be The Darkness, I can't stand Hawkins' vocals but the music is mostly top notch, and to further qualify that I was really disappointed that The Stone Gods didn't keeping going, it w
