I agree.. Btw I made up a "Twin Turbo" 2cd compilation of my favorites, which better represents the intentions of the band back in 1986: Turbo Sessions (47 min) 1. All Fired Up 2. Private Property 3. Parental Guidance 4. Wild Nights, Hot Crazy Days 5. Turn on your Light 6. Out in the Cold 7. Turbo Lover 8. Reckless 9. Prisoner of your eyes Ram it Down Sessions (44 min)

Is there a QR album worth getting that's not Metal Health? Seemed like they caught lightning in a bottle for that album. Was not impressed with Condition Critical, other than the title track.

8-10.. one of the reason people don't buy albums anymore.. just not good enough or have enough time to listen through 15 tracks.

Looks slightly superior to Somewhere in California. Time will tell, however. Assume standard release - did not like any of the bonus tracks. Besides, at 13 songs that's too long.

Midnight Madness and Somewhere in California are the only two albums I can listen to end to end, and as such, they are two worth owning. Dawn Patrol has two killer tracks - but otherwise not very exciting or worthwhile. 1. Midnight Madness 2. Somewhere in California 3. Dawn Patrol 4. the rest

Half their catalog is a ripoff. Credit to them, though, for taking other people's relatively unknown ideas and supercharging them.

It's hard to believe if you weren't there, but at the time this album was laughed at. And not (just) by the media. You can trot out all the numbers you like, but even Def Leppard fans felt those videos were terrible and the songs especially syruppy. I think 1992 was the first heard the word "cheesy." Everything else going on at the time was far more exciting -even if I didn't partic

I was around at the time - Adrenalize was a dud in America. Rickyboy is right in that the corporatization of their sound continued - producing mom-rock - ultra slick and glossy - in 1991-1992 was not a wise move. A return to their hard rocking, metal roots would have "saved" their status as a big US act. It's been 20 years and they still haven't figured that out.

I don't mind the song and the album is actually one of her best. Having Kroeger co-write all the songs certainly helped - very consistent end-to-end. A great "comeback" from Goodbye Lullaby. I will say, however, that of all the records I own this is easily the most obscene, which is a little embarrassing. Avril can do without that stuff.

Too many songs. Too many bad songs. Too many songs written by somebody else. Very disappointed when it came out.

Winger - as much as I like the band - was largely a 3rd tier act. You had Motley crue, Def Leppard, Van Halen and Bon Jovi as 1st tier acts. 2nd tier were probably Poison, Ratt, Cinderella, and a few others. All of these sold far better than Winger and had bigger hits. Third tier acts like Winger - and I would probably include Dokken and White Lion among them - will have the more fickle fans.

Great comment - "Slip of the Tongue" was one of the worst offenders of late 80's corporate cheese.

Coincidence. If Winger was churning out great songs nobody would have cared. I mean, just look at Nickleback - everyone makes fun of them, but they still deliver. The problem was most of the hair bands did not, and most of the genre was coated in mediocrity. All the bands sold out their credibility - just look at about any 81-83 hair metal release and compare it to their 88-90 counterparts. The f

Hair metal got incredibly stale by the late 80s. That was 100% independent of B&B. In fact, B&B were about two years late to the party. Reach for the Sky, Detonator (Ratt); In the Heart of the Young (Winger); Adrenalize (Def Leppard), et al. Those records were MAJOR let downs for the average record buyer, particularly Adrenalize - from the flagship pop metal band. And you could name do

Their most consistent/best records: Creatures, Sonic Boom, and Monster. The rest of their output had great songs, but too inconsistent.

Captain is conveniently defining away the label. That is, presupposing bubblegum pop can't have some lyrical depth. This disussion likely won't go anywhere without a consesus definition of "bubblegum," "pop," and "depth." With that said: -writing about a marital breakup isn't necessarily "deep." Feelings or emotions over a "boy" can be equal

Press doesn't pick up message board threads but official website news. This is a normal means of getting the news out of their tour. Sounds like a perfectly normal, reasonable thing to do with their website. I agree about Night Ranger - they are trying to re-re-brand themselves (from pop rock to hard rock/metal/twin leads) and this is a perfect opportunity.

Kiss is the bigger draw stateside, and possibly internationally. In 2011 Def Leppard/Heart averaged 8.3k per show. In 2010 Kiss did about twice that with Bad City opening. In 2013 Kiss did about 17k per show with Shinedown opening.
