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

Hmmm...now that you mention it, I do seem to have a vague memory of the painting being bigger than just what you think of as the cover. I will have to investigate that later when I get home!

You could scan the cover with super high resolution, and save it at the dimensions you want for a wallpaper, although you'd probably either have to warp it a little to fit a rectangular screen, or have bars on the sides since it's a square shape. If it eats up too much memory, you could then compress it and not lose much if any resolution...

I thought of this question a couple days ago as I was playing Jimi Jamison's most recent solo album as well as One Man's Trash in the car, and thought to myself that his voice (at least on a studio recording...I've never seen him live) seems as strong and clear as ever, if not even perhaps more so than back in the 1980s. So, with that in mind, what vocalists that have been in the game for years

I liked the band from the start, but it was Man in Motion that made them my favorite band of all time. I have that habit, though...latching on to bands at the end of their commercial success/popular awareness when the next album is years and years in coming, if at all. For other examples, I'd put Desire Walks On by Heart, Mr Moonlight by Foreigner, In the Spirit of Things by Kansas, Too Hot to

I won't attempt my own ranking of their work, but I was glad to see your list giving Man in Motion some love. Whenever I hear mention of that album or see Night Ranger's stuff ranked, I'm always a little disappointed to see that album dismissed pretty heavily. To see it ranked near the top is a good thing to me. I'd probably put Big Life as my bottom ranked album, though, which again goes ag
