Night Ranger comes close to doing no wrong with me, and I love the album High Road overall, but I can't take "Don't Live Here Anymore" from it. It's an automatic skip for me when it comes up. I have revisited it a few times on purpose, to see if my opinion changes, but it never does...can't stand that one.

I am just wondering if anyone has gotten the EP from the current incarnation of Autograph. On their website they are selling a five song EP (one song is of course "Turn Up the Radio" yet again) called _Louder_. I just got it in the mail a day or two ago...to my ears it's not bad at all musically, though the vocals leave a little something to be desired, and the mix is a bit harsh. So

I second the Jeff Watson vote, although I would also be good with Joel Hoekstra back, too, as I like him in the band quite a bit too. Everything I've seen and read about Keri Kelli so far makes me think he's not a really good fit. But maybe I will be proven wrong with their new album whenever it is done.

I finally bit the bullet on this album just a couple of months ago, after avoiding it since its release, mainly because of the stuff I read about it on this site. I picked it up when I ran across it by chance and just said, "Oh what the heck...why not?" Maybe it's because I expected it to be the equivalent of slamming your hand in a car door several dozen times, but when I finally h

I have been bewildered by some comments on album production, too. For some bands, a little rawness in the production can be a benefit, actually, and I have found myself wondering what the complaint is about many many others that supposedly have awful production. The most recent Toto release is one of them...it sounds very clean and clear and crisp to me, and I don't hear what the problem is wit

Once upon a time groups put out a new album every single year, year after year, maybe skipping one year here and there. Gradually that slowed down, and now we think nothing of five, six years between albums, or more. And now in the present we are supposed to wet ourselves if someone manages to come out with a vague promise of an EP, eventually...or just one song...maybe...we'll see what happ

Funny you mention this album as being revisted recently, as I did the same thing a couple of weeks ago and kept it in rotation in the car for a number of days. It's not the most meaningful album ever, but it's a hell of a listen, and Ann Wilson's voice is at the top of its game on it. I know to many Heart fans, the 80s to early 90s stuff isn't what they go for, and while I like the older albu

I will give it a shot, Terry. I'm not ready to throw the disc into the shelf of CDs that never get touched, and I hope to change my mind. I hope to be able to retract that part of my post above! The signs aren't good currently, but you never know. I want to like it heavily like I expected to...I do!

I recently got ahold of the Revolution Saints and Toto CDs, and they each have defied my expectations or first impressions. I went into Revolution Saints very amped up, as Night Ranger is my favorite band of all, and I have big respect for the other two players beyond Jack Blades as well. I saw the video for "Turn Back Time" before the album was released and liked it, and still do,

The two finest ones I've ever tried, and I've tried well over a hundred, ranging from barely warm to insanely hot, are Amazon Green Hot Sauce and Jardine's Habanero Hot Sauce. Pure bliss, both of them... http://cdn.mohotta.com/images/products/10006.jpg http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51dVdYL3IGL._SX425_.jpg

I like Seven quite a lot; many mentions of that album here are somewhat negative, but to my ears it's always been a really solid entry in their catalog, and much more in line with what you expect to hear from Night Ranger than Neverland is. I struggle with Neverland a little bit, as to me it's a bit too twangy in music mix and in the way Jack uses his voice on it, while Seven is a bit more tradi

I ran across mention of this semi-reunion a few months ago by accident. I wondered if it would ever come up on this site. Here's a video about it, which is what I ran into a while back: YouTube video

On my way to work today there was a blurb on the radio from the DJ about this tour. I kept waiting for any mention of Night Ranger, but there wasn't a single whisper about them being any part of it either at this point...

My ears don't hear their voices as the same, either. They work well in harmony together well, but when they sing separately I hear them as pretty distinct voices. Also, if you look through all their albums, with the exception of "Forever All Over Again," the ballads are pretty much Kelly Keagy's exclusive territory. He seems more suited for the slower, in a somewhat lower register si

This is something that occurred to me recently: While there are a few acts of this genre who are still pulling in the big bucks with touring and whatnot (Bon Jovi, etc.), and there are several acts who probably aren't getting rich off touring any longer, if they ever did, but still are full time in the music business in one capacity or more (Night Ranger, for example), there must also be acts

The analogy probably is not an exact match, but any textbook on writing, and any writer will tell you the best way to get better at writing is to do two things: write all you can, and read all you can. I'd expect the practice would extend to music, too...write and write and write, and listen and listen and listen. Yeah, you don't want to subconsciously "rip off" someone else or lose y

I was driving from one job to the other today, and Toto's "Hold the Line" was on the radio. Since I mentioned Kansas to my girlfriend a few days ago, it popped into my head, "Did Kansas and Toto ever share a bill?" They don't perfectly go together musically, exactly, but hey, maybe they have played on the same bill at some point. Then I recalled that I know that Ratt and Pois

Jimi Jamison "Never Too Late" Jack Blades "Don't Give Up" Boston "We Can Make It" It's harder than Journey level, but Danger Danger "Still Kickin'" Kelly Keagy "I'm Alive" (The lyrics on this one I think are very appropriate to someone struggling with health issues, in particular.)

You stole the song I would have added, Kent! "Art of Letting Go" is one of my favorites of hers; that and "Shadows of the Night" are probably my two favorites of all from her.

I've found that most seem to forget or shrug off Man in Motion by Night Ranger, yet that one is my favorite of their original run of releases. I also quite like Feeding Off the Mojo, which gets an even shorter shrift. Huey Lewis' Hard At Play album is great stuff to my ears, but also gets glossed over, as does their first covers album, Four Chords and Several Years Ago. Other ones that com
