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.

Who said the Can Man doesn't contribute on occasion? Good tip, and a lovely song. Will check them out.

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.

Yeah, I also got a weird error message. Thought I had entered the wrong URL at first. Should've taken a screencap.

Wow, this has been a long time coming! Excellent work, Andrew. You must be insanely relieved that it's finally out there. Looks sleek, professional, and streamlined. I do have a quick question - how does one know which section has been most recently updated? (without having to click on each one?). Sorry, maybe I'm daft. Congrats!

Bryan needs to stop reminiscing and release a solid rock album before he gets too old. He's stated that his interest in albums is limited because, "nobody buys them anymore", but...he hasn't considered that maybe nobody buys them because he releases adult contemporary crap like '11'. He records on the road, on the fly. I have doubted in the past that artists can truly release a s

Good to see Steve come out of his self-imposed retirement, but this is hardly a triumphant return to glory. Talk about hyperbole. When he writes some new songs, puts a band together, and records some killer material, followed by at least a full show or two...I may agree. Going on stage for a few minutes to do a quickie medley while incredibly rusty (by Perry standards) is lovely for nostal

They've been releasing singles for the past year: 5 Minutes of Fame, Highway of Life, and now Rock n Roll Train.. Does anyone know what the deal is with a new album??

One of the saddest parts of the article is that Def Lep is opening for Kiss, and charging quite a bit less for their own meet and greet (not that it would be worth it). I've always thought Kiss was a gimmicky band with one or two solid moments, but overall shit compared to DL who have truly helped shape the genre with interesting songwriting, musical, and sonic contributions.

I disagree with Pelata. Misplaced anger is the artist bitching about his image if he is recorded at a show, especially these small time folks. This is the way the world works now - deal with it. You're going to get filmed and photographed anywhere. Period. If there's something in a live video that the artist feels is damaging to his image, he either sucks or did something he shouldn't ha

Hey Figge, The best seasons of 24 are 1-3. Season 4 is pretty crap, but the ending is one of the best endings of 24 ever (and would've made a great season finale...better than the actual finale). Season 5 is good, but was widely raved about as one of the best of 24, a sentiment echoed by Kent. Six was not great. 7 and 8 were ok, entertaining, but the show was showing its age. S

Funny story. Bryan Adams was undecided on 'Touch the Hand' from Waking up the Neighbours, so Lep was going to include their version of it on Adrenalize. At the last minute, Adams changed his mind and wanted the song back.

I actually think Adrenalize had the makings of a sensational album...and yet..not quite. It's a 'so close, but so far' story, which is what makes it so frustrating. Someone above said, "the sonic direction was fine, but the songs weren't very good". I actually think it's the opposite. The songs are there, in terms of the melodies, riffs, and signature Lep moments. The songwrit

Independently of the fact that we have yet another Best Of...I hate that it includes so many live versions. Re-recordings of old stuff, fine...acoustic versions, fine. But live versions? Meh. Then again, I'm biased. I think most live albums are pointless.

I was a fan, but this crazy asshole is clearly beyond learning anything. He's gone from attemptint to rip fans off by not offering them anything of value...to just plain old not offering anything at all, and just asking for money. Ireelevant twat.

What are the rules that govern deletion? If I were Andrew, I'd answer: there are no rules. There needn't be any rules. I delete anything that rubs me the wrong way, depending on circumstance, tone, reaction from other posters, topic, repeat offenders, and many many other subjectivities. I find that Andrew is very lenient overall. There are tons of overly moderated forums that have irked

Don't mean to hijack Patiscat's thread, but I'm finally giving the album it's first spins and...I don't like it much. I'm trying to! It has a couple of strong songs, like 'What You Get' and the single, but overall feels like loads of filler. Even opener 'Bang', which could've been really solid, is ruined by a stupid chorus 'Bang bang banging around banging around the world'...really? Andre

Andrew, maybe the secret to making the paywall work is to make the cost low enough to where people don't think twice about it. So you get a low price / high volume combination, instead of higher price with lower volume and exposure.

For those of you who havent heard it, the album is now up on YouTube, just search Gotthard Bang and limit results to within the last week. Someone put the songs up.

A new song, Jump the Gun, is up on YouTube (well, a preview) and like most of the others, it left me cold. The duet sounds iffy, too. Only the single so far works for me...in addition to 'What You Get', as Peter mentions (though I've only heard the YouTube preview shown from Wisseloord studios). My expectations have been suitably adjusted.

Pffft....an obtuse and idiotic decision. Cutting off your nose to spite your face. They're imposing on the consumer on the grounds that their artistic vision needs to be forcibly taken in the exact way they think it should be. It's self-indulgent and rigid, and will hurt their sales tremendously. So be it; consumers will respond accordingly. I'm all for audiophiles and those who are so

I usually disagree with quibbles on Andrew's reviews because it's all so subjective. But I kind of agree with Pressure in this case. The wording seems lukewarm on the album overall, and with the exception of the single and the closing track, there always seems to be a 'but' for most tracks 'the chorus didn't grab me', 'this one is filler", "not one of the album's best moments"
