Spot on Wardy, KTD is the best Dio-album since Sacred Heart IMO, and Magica isn't far off in terms of quality either - definately close to on par with Dream Evil the latter one too. I love Strange Highways too, but I appreciate the fact that it might not be everyone's cup of tea - as it is more of a continuation of where RJD left off with Sabbath, than a out and out classic Dio-sounding album

Yeah have been discussed here a couple of times before if memory serves. The album is IMO not quite what I had expected qualitywise - by no means bad, but the overall impression of the album is that the songwriting isn't quite up to the standard I would have liked it to be. Viv's melodic solos is another thing that I'm missing. I'm not one of the guys that's preaching about the album being pl

On the issue of the sum of all all parts... I know exactly what you mean, gotta say though that I don't have that problem with Ozone. But then again that is one album that I in all fairness have been putting on the backburner for a while - so I haven't really dug into it properly... IMO the first HTP album is an exception to the rule about the issue at hand I would have to say - on that album

How about Jimi Jamison's Survivor Terry? For me that is the record released under his own name that I have been playing most. Can't say I've been following his solo career all that closely, even though I've heard Crossroads Moment, Never Too Late and When Love Comes Close I totally get where you're coming from regarding that you have got to be in the right mood to be playing his material - wit

Found Rise on spotify, and I like some of the tracks - a lot of the riffs are much in the Dokken vein. But the melody lines are for the most part quite different to Don & Co. Will get further listening session to see if it worth picking up

Count me in, definitely going to check it out - that is even if most comparings to Dokken hardly ever is pays off in terms of being particularly interesting at all... Thanks for the heads up, as I said will check it out - so do you have a link Scott?

Defiants sounds good, but as I expected Treat is so much better - and I must add that it's not on par qualitywise with D2 stunners as 4 the Hard Way and The Return Of the Great Guildersleeves which is a natural thing to compare it too

Spun through it on spotify now - and you're right Terry, cheap on Amazon I see so it's ordered within minutes now. Thanks :)

Like some of the songs, but admit that the production pretty much kills all that's good about them - and yeah I know they are demoed track from yesteryear. But still these sessions shouldn't have seen the light of day without being re-recorded, with the possibility of keeping the tracks some of the guests laid down. So even if the songs is more on par than they've been for a number of years in he

Wouldn't consider myself a fan, but I have some fond memories of seeing the video to his version of Wild Thing in which the video included most late 80's Rock Royalty at the time. If you haven't seen the video, I strongly suggest you do should. ..

Haven't gotten round to take in the latest one just yet, but given the rave reviews it got I'll have to get that one priority on my check out list. But regarding which albums to go for; Backstreet Symphony, Laughing On Judgement Day, Behind Closed Doors and Shooting At The Sun are the ones I would invest in.....much like Terry I see :)

Of course there's love for Treat, IMO the best Scandinavian Melodic Rock band since they released Pleasure Principle, with the slight exception of the S/T album (which is good but not great) it's been all gold. Can't really say much about the new album as it is too fresh to have settled with me just yet - but even if 3 of the 4 tracks previewed left me a little bit underwhelmed initially - they h

Really liking it here too, maybe it should have had a guitar solo - but otherwise great. It's quite similar to a song from one of their earlier albums in parts, albeit not the whole song - looking forward to seeing them again in a couple of months time

Blood On The Highway was excellent, forgot to include that on my list :) Have you heard Vagabond Figge, if so what did you think? How about Thunderlords, a one off project with a couple of the guys from Sons Of Angels (the Norwegian Band )- all they did (to my knowledge) was one song for a chips commercial the song is called Fire In The Sky. Very 70's Glam Rock style, along the lines of Swe

Love Vagabond, especially the debut which IMO is among Jorn's best work. Back in the day when it was released it shocked most people because it was so completely different from what they expected from 3 of the guys from TNT. Having spoken to Ronni Le Tekrö he said that he was a fan of City Boy, and his vision for Vagabond was a band sounding more along those lines than TNT -70's Rock with a more

Yeah, knew about both of them, can't say I 'm sold on Into The Fire - a slight teenager styled pop circus especially thinking of the chorus, which to these ears sounds horrible. Regarding the other one, it was released to before SD and Return did a tour together in Norway, a couple of years (or so..) ago

Mine are Resurrection Kings and Nordic Union, but I have a strange feeling Treat is gonna be in the mix as soon as that one has sunken in at the end of the month....

Eventhough I'm not fully convinced Treat has a stunner in line waiting for us, I 'm confident they have the upper hand here. But it's gonna be good hearing Paul Laine doing DD style music again too, so double thumbs-up from me. Regarding the new version of Eclipse's stunning Armageddonize, I gotta say if the only additional track on it would have been the ESC-song Runaways (får weaker than th

Got some scepticism about some of the choices of which songs to cover, and quite happy about others. A shame it's a bit half assed as some of the versions have been released before though - meaning that it's not all new (covers or not) material from him. But being a fan, I still look forward to the release - albeit bearing in mind that it's been a few years since the last time that I had "

I'm just like you regarding Sabbath - love H&H and some songs on Mob Rules but not the whole album.and I loathe the song Country Girl. Bad song, but the lyrics are what makes me have the biggest issue with it. I'm also one of the few that prefers Dehumanizer over MR. If I were to put my finger on one thing on H&H it would be that I wish it could be on par production wise as MR - other tha

Again, for me as well tough call and I see Figge's point with rating and ranking the albums not the eras. But with a knife to my throat I would say Dio Rainbow Sabbath Let it be said though that all of them have been consistent in terms of quality, with both highs and lows in all 3 camps..

Their first time ever in Norway 2nd August, still debating whether to go or not - having seen them (and it was pretty good, but maybe not great) once already at Sweden Rock Who's in the band these days? Danny Miranda or Rudy Sarzo on bass? What about the drummer, who's that behind the kit nowadays?
