Meh. I agree with Bob on some of the finer points, such as the biased selection of quotes, etc, and know that Ozzy and Sharon can be pricks, but it's all so much whining. Classic Rock doesn't owe anyone anything! It's their award, they can proceed as they wish. And the name on the album is 'Ozzy Osbourne', he's the artist, so he gets the award. Period. Nothing wrong with that. It is a

Sadly, Cassidy has long since abandoned the sound from his self-titled EP, so I wouldn't expect anything great from his new material. Listen to some of the records he did after the Enigma disc and you'll see what I mean...

Well, stylistically they're spot on and Lzzy has very impressive pipes. I think the songwriting could use some work...but that's the main weakness of most bands. Still, some good tracks; just hear the entire albums on Spotify.

I agree with Peter. I've been listening to the songs on YouTube, and overall, they don't hold up to the rest of the album. I guess there's a reason why they were outtakes! I think Reckless wouldn't have been held in as high a regard as a classic if it had been saddled with these songs.

Hey, Years ago, I researched great in-ear monitors at various price points and bought several models. I avoided a lot of the mainstream brands that do tons of marketing and went with what many of the obsessed audiophiles recommended (stuff like Phonak Audeo, etc). This is one of the awesome resources on the web that breaks things down by price range and is a great guide: http://www.h

Yeah, Malcolm was instrumental in the songwriting - that's why it was interesting to see in the article that the song credits are still Young/Young. It seems like Angus dove into their back catalog and retrofitted little riffs and bits they hadn't used before that had been written by Malcolm. I worry this might be ACDC's swan song, especially with Brian being close to 70. Gotta catch them

Hey folks, I recently watched the movie Drive with Ryan Gosling and loved the vintage 80s synth feel of the music; it's a real palate cleanser from all the usual MR fare, which gets samey if it's all you listen to. For example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XkWiPBX28Ok#t=00m23s https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BHVbbcHWX4k https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UnBCP_u8ywg Some of

I think Hot Sauce brought up some excellent points I agree with, and Andrew recognized that, I just think you undermine your own credibility when you go overboard with the abrasiveness. I think Andrew can be understandably sensitive to such things as 'attacks' because this is his livelihood. I often disagree with Andrew's reviews, and yet I am always extremely interested in what he has to s

Well...since I had read Stevie was the nephew, I thought he'd be much younger, maybe in his 30s, but he looks older than any of them!!

Tim, This is amazing news!! I do remember your older post about your son, and am so heartened by the way things have turned out. Thanks for sharing the news, and the photo. Keep enjoying your family, and many blessings for your little one. JMac.

It's an interesting song, definitely in the alt-country Ryan Adams mold. For me, the perfect Butch is the style of 'The Spade'...I do love the M3 and Left of Self-Centered style, but it's also a little derivative of 80s rawk. The Spade had great songs in a fresh, original style. His new EP wasn't my style. Butch keeps releasing hit and miss albums for me, but he's prolific enough that he

I hope the album of all-new material is better than this...it's a career low, this album. First, cover albums tend to be lazier efforts from artists that can't be bothered to write (no matter what their official 'reason' is about wanting to honor their influences or whatever). But this is "Bryan Adams sings Elevator classics"...going full-on adult contemporary. Some tracks ar

Well, he IS working with Vallance again, he co-wrote the only new track on the covers album...he just needs to write rock songs. I agree with Peter about WUTN. I loved the disc when it came out, now it's harder to appreciate it. The sad part is that the songs are there...for the most part...but the drum machine and other production elements just rob it of any life. It sounds bloodless and d

Oops! I read the article properly now...he doesn't mean 'Tracks of My Years' but an actual NEW album to come after that. Well, at least the guy isn't going to wait 8 years between records like last time. By the way, I have a question about the Blu-ray super audio (or whatever it's called) release of Reckless. Is there a way to rip audio files into a computerized format from Blu-Ray? So I c

Having heard 3 tracks, I can confirm this will not be the case by a long, long shot. The only original track on the album, co-written with Vallance, is a pleasant trifle that wouldve been ok in the midst of a powerful new album, but by no means a great track by itself. And the covers so far are ho-hum.; Ironically, the only hope for Adams's redemption lies in the past...in those unreleased

The song 'Any Time at All' has also been released via iTunes, the album opener. Beatles song, I think. Audio here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pd1DA7tf4S8 Meh.

Well...it's not a big deal if you're flipping chicken burgers and at the lowest end of the totem pole (meaning, in the restaurants). If you want to run operations or marketing...yes, it's a huge deal to them.

Causation is not the same as correlation, you nitwit. The fanatics who run Chick-Fil-A have abhorrent, invasive hiring practices for execs...they pry into your personal life to make sure you live up to their idea of Christian fundamentalism. Good for them if their chicken sandwiches are great...but it's nothing I can't make at home.

Good band! I like what I've heard so far...stronger chops than most bands from the scene. That said, I think the lead vocals are a little...not sure, far back in the mix. It could just be the tone of the singer's voice. Maybe diction. Still, interested in hearing more.

I agree with the assessment of some folks on here...like 'supermodel', the term 'supergroup' is overused in press releases and the like, and thrown around too lightly. Most of these cases are just, 'musicians from different bands getting together'. Because that's what musicians do. The feeling is often more akin to, "let's get together and jam awhile for a buck" than the kind of am

I'm never going to go see Leppard again on one of these 'shared' tours...especially when I'm not a huge fan of the co-headliner. They've been doing the 'short setlist' thing for years, but it's a hits-only oldies show. Meh. Maybe you get one surprise in there. I may go see them again if they're playing full sets, 120 minutes or more....remember the days of 2.5 hour gigs? Now you get littl

My opinion is this: - I would never pay for an autograph or photo either. Absolute dick move. Any artist who wants you to pay for either is a twat. There are two exceptions: 1. If what you're paying for is a VIP event where you CAN get your photo taken and autograph, but that's not what you're paying for, specifically. You're paying for premium seats, a backstage experience, meet &

He belongs in a zoo. In a sport riddled with corruption and other issues, he's a disgrace...which is saying something! If you can't stop biting even after a couple of suspensions, there's something pathological going on.

Can Man, through your madness you make valid points sometimes, but this one is just obtuse. Rick isn't charging extra money or special packages, etc. It's just a stipulation from the store - the very reason why theyre sponsoring him, and why he's going, is to drive sales...not to do some random, impromptu fan meet & greet. It's a book signing so you'll buy the book from there.
