I don't think I've listened to the TFT in its entirity in one go. That probably speaks volumes. OOTW I think the tracks they have played live have been great. Personally, I think Europe are a great band, even if I'm a bit glum generally over their post 2003 releases. My biggest gripe is why more PiP songs don't get played and 'More Than Meets The Eye' isn't a regular on the live set-list

Tricky one isn't it? However I would say that 'Prisoners In Paradise' was a great step in the right direction. Fairly heavy but still melodic and very catchy chorus's.. 'Out of This World' album works really well live I think.. 'Superstitious', and 'More than Meets the eye' being notable tracks.. I think what frustrates me is that some of Pre 'OOTW' was too keyboardy-sweet for me but ironi

I agree. Thunder may not have a 'Rolling Stones' esque size of following but they have a very broad appeal in my opinion

Nope, I think they will happen.. Thunder (I think) have sufficient draw to make the dates profitable for all involved.. Travel hopefully. :)

Good point.. Someone in the medical world once that rarely do you get a 'free lunch' if you abuse your body to the extreme, even if it catches up with you later. I think of James Hunt the racing driver. Loved his drinking and 'recreational powders' and smoking etc. Cleaned up his act, used to cycle everywhere etc and sadly died of a heart attack in his 40's. Not unlike Motley Crue (with

Perhaps being a bit sweeping here but Re-Recordings seem (in the case of Def Leppard particularly) done for commercial reasons and in the case of 'Hysteria' sound close but not close enough. When an album is brilliant, it doesn't take much to take away those last few percent that make all the difference.. In Def Leppard's case I avoid the Re-Recording as much as possible.

Just checking out 'Adler''s album now.. Sounds pretty good so far to these ears..

Audio wise the first 40 seconds are very promising but it descends rapidly into something very ordinary.. I don't get these videos. There seem to be a lot of these that follow the same 'band in a room' blank / semi-blank backdrop and and a cheesy kinda sub-plot. Very 'off the shelf' horrible. Will be interesting to hear what some more of the album is like.

Great to see him on stage with GnR. Who would have thought Slash, McKagan, Adler and Rose would share a stage again, 5 years ago?

I'm with you.. Compared to some artist pages, his certainly comes across as trying a bit too hard to self promote.. That's a lot of endorsements and one heck of a song list under 'work'

Wiki isn't the most credible of sources but it does appear he has featured on a LOT of releases. However, there are few 'Superstar' entries on that list. Alice Cooper's fairly recent release would be the biggest IMO.

Haha... Very good... Two lesser known albums: Vivaldi - The Four Seasons The Seikilos epitaph which I hear was around 1st century AD. :-)

1987 - A lot of filler but the good tracks are great.. 8 SOTT - Some brilliant tracks but mix lacks depth and Vai is a touch too nootletastic. Not heavy enough rhythm guitar. 7 1/2 Slide it In - Some filler but a great mix (prefer the U.S. release) and some fine tracks 7 Restless Heart - Far better than many of its critics suggest. Very different from the p

Bloody brilliant!! These guys are on fire right now.. Wish them all the best with the new album.. After Nikki Sixx slamming the Motley Crue album with John Corabi, recently, I think a classy track like this does sock it to ol Sixx and his 'goth-paint' Looking forward to the album.

I guess it's maybe his (very bad) attempt at acting and expressing forced emotion, considering he didn't write the songs on this covers album and maybe a hint of arrogance going on there too. Great voice, lousy actor!

There are so many great players that I've never heard of but for being great in their own field, I'd include: Gary Moore Yngwie Malmsteen (for technical brilliance) Dave Gilmour John Petrucci

I'm inclined to agree. There is no denying Jorn has a monster of a voice but these covers are pretty lazy affairs.. Following the originals in a very formulaic fashion, just adding the Frontiers default 'heavy' treatment. The videos almost define the metal cliche stereotypes of old.. I see little real artistic expression in these releases, mere 'metal by numbers'

Revolucion is a great album.. Really impressed with the line-up and Corabi's vocals... Hope this next album develops on that :)

I thought David Coverdale was disappointed that he wanted to do the remasters properly but the record company vetoed it? I stand by the Coverdale era Purple albums would benefit from the benefit of more modern technology (not overdoing it mind) to bring the sound out.. Personal taste and all that.

I've only listened to the album digitally so ultimately the mix will be flawed on that medium anyway, so i've more appreciated the songs and the weight rather than the audiophile quality.. It's tough because the original Deep Purple releases could do with a decent remix to bring more depth to them (in my opinion) so I guess both the originals and the 'Purple Album' are a good few degrees from

I admit I love 'Getting Tighter' even on Glen Hughes solo work. Would maybe have been nice to have him guest on this track.. But other than that, A fine album.. I could listen to some of the tracks quite regularly..

I'm really enjoying the album. Purists will argue about the originals etc etc but I think the album stands up in its own right with a heavier more bombastic delivery.. I think the final track 'Comin' Come' is ace! A fine effort by all involved..

Thunder tend to frustrate me.. Great singer, good musicians and some fine tracks, but also too many mediocre songs from a band of this quality. First three are excellent. 'Backstreet Symphony', 'Laughing on Judgement Day', 'Behind Closed Doors'.. Then it all goes a bit downhill. Then they come back with 'Shooting at the Sun' which is very strong, then it starts to fade away again. 'Wond

I've owned Windows PC's since Windows 3.x days and worked with them for over 20 years and..........I use a MAC.. I begrudge handing Apple my cash but I have a MacBook Pro (which I paid blood for) and it's mostly brilliant for what I need. My biggest issue is USB latency when recording Audio and MIDI and on the Mac it's been more than adequate. I find with Windows PC's, they work well when
