Would prefer a follow up to 'Boys In Heat' rather the 'Bite Down Hard', however, if the quality is as high as either of those albums, I couldn't care who is singing. Personally would prefer and see more relevance to Dizzy being back, but like I said, if the quality is high, I don't care either way.

It is certainly their worst with Baz, however, it is far from dreadful. I loved how Skid Row's first 3 albums are all different. They showed a progression from hard rock to metal over the 3 albums, and Subhuman Race was the raw heavy metal finale. It was as someone put it, the sound of the band breaking up. I mean, look at the front cover! They dropped the awesome logo and went for a generic

Sounds great! Was a little disappointed with New Audio Machine. Hope this one is better. This is a good sign...

Wow. Hope it's worth it. Are you able to let us know what it's like? I want it. Just not sure it's worth parting $300 to get it. Any feedback would be much appreciated mate.

The answer is no. The first two Skid Row albums are near faultless hard rock albums. I'm glad Harnell is in the band though. Would rather baz, but Harnell is a good choice. Definitely keen to hear what they can do together. But no way it will match the debut and STTG.

Last year Dynazty was my surprise packet of the year. They dropped the hard rock sound for a more power metal feel. And for mine, it worked and was a great album from start to finish. This year, my surprise packet is Jettblack with their new album Disguises. I've liked their last two albums and found them entertaining. Disguises for me is a more mature and modern sounding album. They have los

Sounds great to my ears. You don't want a live album to sound too polished. I don't think this sounds too polished, and I don't think it sounds too crappy like a bootleg. As much as Dave sounds ordinary at times, I'm getting a lot out of this live album. I couldn't ask for more than what VH have produced in their studio and live albums.

Wow! Did not see this coming. Thought Solinger was ok. Really liked the last ep they made. Thought it was easily the best material since STTG. As for Harnell, he is one I never pictured in Skid Row. I'm sure he can hit those high notes that Baz used to be able to do. Would have much preferred Baz to be back in the band, but that ship has sailed I'm afraid. Hopefully Harnell can light a fuse u

It's hard to explain, but it seems too 'light' to me. It seems like they have toned the rock down for commercial radio, however, the songs just aren't there for mine. I love a good ballad(Bet You Wish You Had Me Back is a fantastic ballad), but all the slower songs on here fall flat. There are no choruses that have stuck with me, and no riffs that make me want to play it again. Apocalyptic is de

Lived with this for a week now and Wow!!!! I loved their last album 'The Strange Case Of...', but this new album IMO is really really disappointing. It doesn't know if it wants to be a bad Nickelback clone(sorry, I know there are lots of fans on this site, I'm not one) or a Pink(I actually don't mind her) B-Sides album. For mine, there is nothing memorable on it(maybe besides Apocalyptic), and it

I really rated Dark Passion Play. Very under rated album. And yes, it does have a similar feel with a few songs that are different to past Nightwish songs, which include the 24 minute Epic final track and Edema Ruh which to my ears is quite different to any other Nightwish song. It breaks into what is nearly a classic 70's hard rock song at times, with a Bluesy guitar feel to it throughout parts

I don't need to defend myself in regards to where I got my 'advanced' copy. the only thing I download is the occasional tv show. I have numerous contacts within the music industry and get packages every week with advanced albums. I have over 8000 cds in my collection, most I have purchased with my own $$. I've been around here long enough for people to know that I sometimes have advanced info on

Managed to get my hands on a copy a week ahead of release, and I must say it kills the last album. Right up there with there best IMO and well worth purchasing to any fan sitting on the fence due to their recent output(Dark Passion Play is extremely under rated, however Imaginaerum IMO besides a couple of tracks was a poor album). Floor is fantastic. Took a couple of listens to get used to yet

I think the new Scorpions albums is pretty good. Too long like most albums that are released these days, but it's a rocking album. I couldn't expect any more from these guys tbh... But yes, agree Europe is the stronger of these albums.

October. Rumour has it Kiss might even be playing at the AFL grand Final in early October. I for one am strangely excited by this pairing.

IMO this is the best Europe album since their reformation. Very solid album from start to finish. Those that can't get into the new 'sound' probably won't be swayed, but I think this is their most consistent album since Prisoners In Paradise. Has some great bluesy riffs and the band sounds very comfortable in their direction, sounding more and more like their 70's influences in UFO, Thin Lizzy an

Cool. Have really enjoyed their past three albums. Hoping for a sound more similar to 'Until We Have Faces' though. That was a near faultless album...

Why are they so limited and only available in Japan. Sell it for around $200 and you'd sell thousands of them globally, surely. I'm very keen to get my hands on one, but by the looks of it, I'll be missing out..

Yeah, I like it. There really is nothing wrong with it. But there is nothing that grabs me and makes me want to turn it up and play it again and again! Thought The Connection had too many songs overall, but had some rockin' tracks. Overall it's a better album for mine. 'Devil' is a cool track from the new album. I like 'Broken As Me', and also the final track 'Warriors', but the rest I've heard b

I've had a couple of listens, and it's solid. Nothing really stands out on the album. I don't think it's as heavy as past albums. Has a more melodic feel to it. Production is good and the songs are ok, but I have the feeling I've heard most of it before from these guys.

It's ok. Would have fit nicely on the SOLA album. Tour announcement for Australia next week. They are coming in May. I'll be at the Melbourne and Sydney shows to say goodbye! They were a massive part of my High School days. Loved the Crue. Glad I get to say goodbye.

Very solid album. Had no doubts it would be good, as I love both these guys. I'm not sure it sounds exactly like Lynch Mob or Stryper throughout the whole album, but it definitely leans towards one or the other at times. The opening track sounds more like modern day Stryper, while the very next track Dying Rose has a more Lynch Mob groove to it. For some reason I never pictured these two guys

Excellent Idea!!! Thank you so much for doing this! It is so hard to keep up with releases across all genres of hard rock/metal. Thank you also for adding the heavier releases as well, as I love the heavier stuff as much as the lighter side of rock/metal. PS - Looks like I'm up for a hell of a lot of cash this year!!! Going to be a lot of cool releases consistently over the year.

Wardy, I'm not surprised they are going back to a more Death Metal sound, as Nick sang vocals on the latest Bloodbath album, while Greg has been letting his Death Metal creative juices flow in Vallenfyre. They have gradually been getting heavier with each release since Host. It's like they are going full circle. The thing is, I don't mind which way they go as they have a great sense of melody

I'll give you Depeche Mode for sure. Maybe not quite Duran Duran, but it was definitely their 'pop' album with little or no guitars and all keys. They have redeemed themselves since that album for sure. I'd like them to re-visit 'Host' and rework the album into a more heavy sound with guitars more prominent. A lot of the songs I've heard live from that album actually sound solid.
