I get what you're saying, but a lot would argue Winger's best album is 'Pull' which was released in the early 90's and had some cracking songs on it. I don't think there music went downhill in quality at all. Why is it that Bon Jovi could sell millions of albums around the same time and Winger couldn't? Personally, I feel Pull from Winger and Keep The Faith by Bon Jovi are on a par in terms of qu

I can see both sides of the argument surrounding B&B etc. Metallica IMO, did just as much damage to Winger as B&B did. I was a guy who loved both hard rock and the heavier side of metal(Metallica/Slayer etc), and so were a lot of kids growing up around that era. Christ, I remember even the hardcore metal guys at school listening to bands like Cinderella, Kiss etc. So when the Metallic

I think it's a rather big step up from Firebirth. More in line with the latter material with Steve, but this is a solid album. Can't rate it until a few more spins, but I'm pleasantly surprised.

Was always going to divide people this one. Personally, I really like it. But I know it won't be everyone's cup of tea. It's not a small change in direction. Similar to Motley when Corabi joined. Maybe not as major, but Motley went from cock rock, to metal in one album! This is going to divide there fans for sure.

Apologies if this has been raised before. But has anyone heard this new album? Have liked their past few albums and thought I'd pick this up as well, and when I heard the opening song, I actually thought I'd been sent the wrong disc! Instead of the usual solid Swedish hard rock fare, they have released a full on metal album. Power metal at times, even a touch of prog metal(Symphony X type of stuf

Faith No More! Has had a reunion tour of sorts since ending, but surely they had another few great albums in them! Saw them in Melbourne on that reunion tour at Festival Hall, and it rates in my top 5 shows of all time. Pisses me off they still aren't making records...

Glad this great band is still going, however, the new album will hopefully be better than Firebirth. Not a terrible album by any stretch, but just not up to the past Gotthard lofty standards IMO. My expectations will be reasonably low for this one, so I'm hoping to be pleasantly surprised.

Are there any stores left worth visiting in both these amazing cities? I'm heading to both London and Paris for work in mid Feb and have some coin to spend. So I'd love to visit any cd or record stores that is actually worth visiting. I know Virgin Megastore closed down in Paris recently(was a great store from memory). I've been told to visit Camden markets as well for metal t-shirts(is it wo

An acquired taste this band. But there first two albums IMO were great. A little different than most of the hard rock stuff around at the time. They, like most other bands in the genre, died in the arse once Grunge took a hold. But I'd highly recommend Blackout and Wasted to any hard rock fan of the late 80's early 90's era.

Good call. Watched it a cpl of weeks ago and it scared the hell out of me. And I can handle a good horror too. Definitely in my top 5 horror movies of all time. Director's an Aussie too. Did a really good job of getting that 70's look and feel. Really good mix of Exorcist and Amityville Horror. Anyone into horror must see it...

I know. I got the album with the songs in different order. So it opened with the big ballad and it put me off at first. But Once I got the right tracklist in place on my computer, the album certainly flows better :) Mangini really steps up on this album as well. It's a very solid album. And to my ears, a well produced one again by Petrucci.

I have the whole album :) Have ingested it over about a week or so now. The 20 minute final track 'Illumination Theory' on the album has to be heard to be believed! Symphonic, heavy, mellow, epic! Has everything you want in a DT track. Fair to say they have stepped it up a notch from their last album. I wouldn't say it's heavier, in fact, I'd say it's a realy solid mix of all there past era's, so

Have to agree with Havok as well. There last Ep 'Point Of No Return' is classic thrash. Both those bands are doing the thrash thing way better than Trivium IMO. Probably add Warbringer and Lazarus A.D to Evile and Havok as well. They are the new 'Big 4' IMO. Obviously on a much smaller scale, but they are the best out there in the new wave IMO...

New Evile album is fantastic. Probably the best 'new wave of thrash' album I've heard. As for Trivium, will believe it when I hear it. Have always held high hopes with every album they have released, but have always been disappointed. I didn't find anything memorable on their last album, and that was supposed to be the album that took them into the stratosphere. The screamo vocals really let

Yes, Rebel Beat is probably the least fave track on the album. I still don't mind it, but it sounds like the Goo's trying to be something else. The rest of the album is very solid though and a lot more upbeat than previos few attempts. Not in the same class as Superstar Carwash, Boy Named Goo or Dizzy, but better than the last few IMO...

I think if Criss was still alive they would never have broke up! Doubt they will ever get back together for an album without Criss Oliva. Just can't see it happening unfortunately. Can't complain too much since they went there seperate ways though. Jon Oliva's Pain, Circle II Circle and Trans Siberian Orchestra have helped ease the pain without quite reaching the heights of Savatage. But geez

No idea if it's been released in Australia as yet. I have a contact at Warner Music here who looks after me in regards to getting me this stuff. Andrew can vouch for that as I sent him a Goo Goo Dolls album a few years ago a couple of weeks before release. JB HI FI are having a promtion here where if you pre order the cd you get a signed copy. I was obviously lucky to get a signed copy.

Thoughts? I really like it. I think it's their strongest album since Dizzy. Similar vibe to all post Dizzy albums, but I feel the songs are stronger than their past few albums. Caught In The Storm and Last Hot Night are probably my faves after a couple of spins. Got a signed copy too which was a bonus.

Same. Still like his stuff, but it all sounds the same. He's turned into Axel Rudi Pell. Would really like to hear another Allen/Lande album. More melodic which has been missing from his solo releases...

Still find it strange that 'Methademic' is only available on the deluxe version of the album. Out of the 7 songs I've heard, this is by far the strongest. I thought they would have found room for it on the normal release...

Slave is a 10/10 album for me. Mixes the melodic side of their debut with a more heavy sound. Love the debut, but Slave is as good as it gets for me. This album as well as Appetite For Destruction, Hysteria and Metallica's Black album are perfect 10/10 albums for me from that late 80's early 90's era of music. Still listen to all of them on a regular basis...

It was a debacle. Firstly, yes the site kept crashing and a lot of people missed out on pre sale. Imagine what it will be like when it opens to general public! Secondly, when my wife finally got onto the site to buy tickets, she said the website kept refreshing, and when it did it defaults back to the start which somehow automatically assumed you wanted tickets to the Sydney show. Ebay has he

Went to both nights in Melbourne this week. They played End Of The Beginning, God Is Dead, Loner, Age Of Reason and Methademic over the 2 nights. Ozzy struggled a little on the newer tracks, which all sounded ok. Actually, Methademic probably sounded the best of the lot and I see it's down as a bonus track. Definitely worth getting for the track alone IMO. As for the shows, well worth the w

I was at Stone, and thought Dave let the band down tbh. Cpmpared to the Boston show I witnessed about a year ago, his vocals really let the show down. The band were on fire and to my ears the sound was pretty good for an outdoor event! But Dave as good as he was as a front man, his vocals made a mockery of some of the older material. His vocals were actually better on the new material. It did
