Reckless Love hasn't reach the precious metals here in Finland but Brother Firetribe just went gold with their 2nd album Heart Full of Fire. You have to sell 10 000 units to get gold album here. Reckless Love have been in top 10 with their last two albums, though.

The whole forthcoming album is outstanding, not any fillers. The 80's aor hard rock in the vein of Def Leppard with same kind of of vocal layers and guitars. Just think of Reckless Love albums with no silly glam rock songs.

I've listened to Gravitas couple of times now and it sounds like a big disappointment. Very laidback, boring and tired. The previous XXX was after all the best album after comeback and it even had uptempo songs again. I waited much more because Asia was quite good at Sweden Rock last summer and Sam Coulson seemed to give band new energy. I've blamed Steve Howe for no reason because of slowing

I'll second that but add some, oh, I wish I was 15 again! :) 1986 was the year almost all heavy and hard rock acts went melodic.

Black Sabbath's non-Ozzy and non-Dio albums, UFO:s Misdemeanor, Morse- and Elefante -era by Kansas, 80's albums of Uriah Heep (from Conquest to Equator), Howe-era Bad Co., 80's Kiss to name but a few. At least some "true fans" doesn't rate them at all.

Snart Kommer Natten was a minor radio hit here in Finland in the early 90's. BTW, it is penned by Roxette man Per Gessle and they also made later a version of it in english; Here Comes The Weekend: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RHt_zKWuYa8

Oh, I forgot. Don Barnes' unreleased solo album from 1989 would also fit into my cd-collection.

An official collection of the Survivor and Jimi Jamison demos from the 90's. Uriah Heep's second album with John Sloman and Pete Goalby's recordings from the late 80's.

Like Icon, Kix was at it´s best when Bob Halligan Jr. wrote their songs which was the case in Midnite Dynamite album. Halligan also penned their biggest and only hit Don't Close your eyes.

Of course not, but the titles like The Wild The Willing and the Innocent aren't far from Bruce's music map + there is certain Springsteen vibe in some songs in that era.

Misdeameanor (1985) with Atomic Tommy M on guitar is a great AOR record. Very underrated gem, I would say. The precessor Makin' Contact (1983) is worth checking out too. Funnily the Tonka era albums remind somehow of Bruce Springsteen. Neil Carter even played saxophone on some songs.

From the first MSg album to Save Yourself. Schenker didn't do wrong in the 80's.

Survivor, unfortuntely Frankie sang a couple of tunes on Reach. ZZ Top's Dusty Hill has also had some lead vocals. And you should not remember the b-sides Adrian Smith sang during Iron Maiden's Somewhere in Time era. Great tracks!

I'll second that! Though I would also add the excellent Conquest album into Uriah Heep's AOR category. Those who appreciate the Goalby era shoud get the Peter Goalby's demos into their hands. Uriah Heep would have made a terrific successor for Equator from these songs. In fact Blood Red Rose from Raging Silence was from these demos. 80's was great time for Uriah Heep, at least musically :)

The other excerpt from the era is Vinnie Vincent Invasion's Boyz Are Gonna Rock video where Mark Slaughter mimes along Robert Fleischmann's vocals. Do you remember other clips like these? The videos where players are different than on the actual recording don't count because there are so many of them.

Must also add that for some strange reason the guitars are much lower in the mix than in the first album.

The whole Rise Up album is pretty average comparing to the debut which was a highlight of it's release year. Mårtensson has been too much around lately. Time to have a break IMHO. About five standout tracks and the rest are fillers like aforementioned Love heals which sounds like Journey trying to rewrite Love Hurts.

It seems that Manny hasn't given up yet the Nazareth name:http://artists-worldwide.com/manny-charltons-nazareth/ By the way, the before mentioned Nicky Moore and Manny had a mutual band in Sweden, From Behind. Not a pretty sight :) Saw them in Sweden Rock in 2006 and they played surprisingly only a couple of Nazareth tracks. If i remember right, even Samson were more represented.
