Oooh there's a few, but these would top my list; Lynyrd Skynyrd - Sweet Home Alabama Joan Jett - I Love Rock'n Roll Both overplayed to the max, and adding to the picture that I have always hated them both with a passion ....... ....and oh, anything by U2, Coldplay and Björk - not Melodic Rock by any means, but it's topping the crapometer in my home

Pretty sure that the new album is gonna end up in the top 3 of my best releases this year. The taster that's out Vertigo is another indication that is right on the money in that respect. Great stuff, so I really can't understand the generic comments here. They deliver above and beyond just about every Melodic Rock band the last few years - and to these ears the new track is a continuation of that

Awesome band, superb musicianship, songs are killer - a very underrated album, a bonafide classic to me. Wouldn't mind seeing a Rock Candy remastered re-issue of this gem soon.

Love a bit of Thrash here too, Testament especially but mostly the older stuff - don't care much for newer acts with the more modern approach to the genre. But acts like Megadeth, Forbidden, Slayer, Exodus, Annihilator, Metal Church, Anthrax and Metallica among others hits home with me

Judging from the one song I've heard so far it's gonna be great if they continue in that vein with a bit of variation thrown in - if so I'm in! Stupid band name though

Great bands both of them, the BC debut is classic, and while Deuce is good it's falling short quality wise again compared to the debut. Same goes for BT actually, the debut is their best (by memory) even if I have to say that it's been a while - a few years perhaps...since the last time I heard any of their other records. So I guess it's time to re-investigate those albums again, to see if my mem

Can't wait for the new one, my fave band of the new generation of Melodic Hard Rock acts. It's gonna be exciting to see how much of an impact the change of drummer have had - yeah I know Mårtensson and Henriksson are the decision-makers in the band , but I always felt that Robban Bäck brought something special to the band. Still I both hope and believe we've got a gem awaiting us - perhaps

Need to get that, I 'm curious to see what the others have done with their versions. Must admit that 2112 isn't the first Rush record that I take out for regular spins, but it's got nothing to do with having a bad record at hand. More to do with the fact of it's accessibility, but when I'm in the mood for it - it works splendidly. Then again I got to say in a career spanning over 40 years ther

Not the biggest fan by any means but the classic lineup with Coghland and Lancaster made some great stuff back in the day. The releases from 70-74 are the strongest, maybe especially Piledriver in my books

Spot on Baron, I suppose Barden's voice have seen better days but it was enjoyable nonetheless. You really shouldn't give up on Schenker all that easily Mick, I have also seen him back in the days when he was pretty crappy due to alcohol - but as far as I know he's been sober for a couple of years now and that's a different story. Seen him 3 times in the last year and 1/2 and it's been great, t

Saw Loudness at this years Sweden Rock and let me tell ya they impressed - Akira went down as the best guitarist of this year's festival. Could have hoped for more gems from the late 80's and early 90's but other than that they were awesome

Bought this on recommendations from a couple of guys on another forum, and while I've gotta say that it might deserve another spin or two - it didn't grab me at all. Just can't get into the thing, or even begin to fathom all the great reviews and even less understand why it is considered a cult classic in the genre. So I haven't been revising the album all that much, but of course music is a m

I was answering Peter's post mate. But Bananas was close to a career worst in my books, only songs I can stomach from that release is Silver Tongue and to a slight degree Razzle Dazzle. Overall ROTD was a bit better, but compared to any other studio album post In Rock it falls flat on it's face I'm afraid....

No, you're right Jason, recorded before the stroke - but I suspect they wouldn't release it if he wasn't ready to go touring soon

Magnificent, by miles - also prefer Leverage way ahead of BF, which to these ears is pretty bland. Too many obvious solutions in their arrangements. Not enough twists and turns in BF's material, quite overrated in my books....

Well, soundwise it's more like what the fans would want from them - but I must say that I don't think that the song is particularly strong. It's not utter garbage either, but merely OK in my books. Having said that, I've got some sort of belief in them again after Now What - which was their best album in years, which qualitywise was so much better than than Bananas and Rapture Of The Deep. T

Never said a word about the production did I? One reason for that to be completely honest, is that overall I can't remember too much of the album - so little of an impression did the album leave on me. Yeah believe me I own the album and have tried many many times during the 20-some years it's been in my possession. But as stated earlier the songs aren't just what I would have liked them to be -

I find the UC debut to be a little overrated to be honest, compared to Signal for instance it doesn't quite measure up in terms of quality of the songwriting

Spun through it a couple of times today and it's growing on me slowly but surely - but I can't shake the feeling that it's a little too generic. As said its growing on me and that's a great sign, so in it's defense I'd have to say I like it more now - than I did at first listening session

Got to say that song is overly cheesy - on an otherwise great album - but more so to do with the lyrics than the song itself. I'm sure I'll be stepping on some toes with my next nomination here - but I find the original version of Man Of The Silver Mountain off Rainbow'debut dreadfully boring and staccato. I've heard several better versions of it, but I never really could grasp why that song h

Well, agreed- but most certainly out of place starting off the album. But as far as Restless Heart goes, I love it - wouldn't hesitate to give a 4 on the dice. For me that's still pretty low in the ranking of the discography, but surely not dead bottom
