Agree. Don't have much music from 1992ish-2005 in part for this reason.

Indirectly, the article points out the advantages of records for many: the dramatic presentation of the music (layout, types of songs on each side), the focus on the album proper (rather than singles), and of course the warm sound.

General thing. But yes, the trend these days is to shorter albums after all the bloat from the 90s and to mid- 2000s. Today most pop albums that I look at (new wave, post-punk) are 10 songs and about 45 minutes.. as they should be : ) Few artists can make a compelling album with 12 songs and 60 minutes. Toto is one of the worst offenders. I would even say a double album is better than an 80 mi

If they can keep it to less than 45 minutes, I might buy it. Enjoy a lot of their songs, but their albums are WAY too long.

Sounds like Pete Willis -era Def Leppard (i.e., pretty good).

What is disheartening is that, what the protesters don't appreciate (or perhaps they do), is: when they protest Trump they are effectively protesting the beliefs and values of half the country; when they protest inauguration, they are undermining fundamental institutions of the country; when kids in school are given days off to protest the President, they're learning to yell rather discuss ideas

I would put their style more as: Heavy Metal, Thrash Metal, Glam Metal. The last three albums have been excellent.

Not a Stryper fan, really, but I have their last two albums, and One Side War - they are all good albums. What I find interesting about all of this is that these critically acclaimed albums effectively came out of nowhere- they haven't had this sort of reception in more than 25 years, and were basically forgotten by the mainstream. Sweet's collaboration with Lynch is also a good one.

Wonderful song, but a missed opportunity.

Sounds completely 70s, particularly the organ. There's no new wave influence at all here. Thanks for sharing. For 80's inspired acts, I think one would shoot more for Metric, Sounds, Killers, Atlas Genius, and the like.

An alternative is to consider throwing away or selling some of your least listened to compact discs.

For better or worse, talk about guns and same-sex issues, it seems, completely misses the sentiment of the American people. The left, while well-intentioned, genuinely does not understand nor appreciate the source of Trump's appeal. Calling him a racist, misogynist, selfish, doesn't change that. Trump will likely not be a good president. However, every time a talking head or politician blames gun

I wonder if the lawsuit is solely about the notes - surely, timbre and the sparse musical arrangement is what makes the intros so similar to many ears.

The similarity is only at the beginning, yet this, many would argue, is the most distinctive and important element of the song. That is to say, if the casual listener heard "Spirit" they may have mistaken it for "Stairway."

These are indeed funny bits, but they completely overlook or dismiss what makes Trump appealing. This planting one's head in the sand is the reason Trump has been and will continue to be underestimated.

I think what these threads miss is asking the question: what is the purpose of giving an album review? I think what 2_edgedsword is trying to convey is NOT that he disagrees, necessarily, with Andrew's opinions, nor is he saying he necessarily disagrees that, in general, Andrew's reviews are helpful to him making a purchase. Rather, what I think 2_edgedsword and likely rockon2216 are tryin

Great release. Like the 2-disc format (I think their last two albums would have been stronger when presented as a double album). A couple weaker songs, but listenable and engaging all the way through. If you liked any of the reunion albums, this will likely appeal to you.

Todd has always the best things to say about Geoff, and largely sidesteps any question on former band politics. He has completely taken the high road which is encouraging. The sign off has nothing to do with Geoff, but re-energizing their fan base.

Very good album - about 1 or 2 songs too many, otherwise it would be a classic. Exciting new era for Queensryche, for sure.

I strongly recommend their last two albums - City of Gold and Armed to the Teeth - if you liked the vibe of their new album. Wagener produced one (or both) of them. Their debut - Eyes in the Night - is listenable as well, with a more overt 80's thrash vibe. What I like about the band is the great classic riffs and harmonies, but also sound like they're just having fun - none of it is mean spir
