"Oh!!!" Sorry, now I got "Living in Danger" stuck in my head. Sure, its part rap, but SO infectious. And positive. If it doesn't make you smile, you're a bitter old man and I need to stay the fuck away from you so your negative psychic energy vibes don't bring me down, too. There - I said it :-P Now I'm finished rambling. "Oh!!!" :-)

I'm really into the new single by Marianas Trench, "Pop 101", if you've heard that, so that should give you some indication of my affinity for pop. Especially if its an artist I'm already into. Have no problem with either Marianas' or 7th Heaven's decision to go more pop. Nothing wrong with music that's upbeat or helps take your mind off your problems. Though I guess its more fashio

Same here. I did get into Stryper first, but Michael's first solo CD was just awesome. Great hooks and melodies, was right up my alley musically. I was a Junior in High School, had just gotten into Christian music the year before (saw Stryper on MTV in the late 80s, so that's how I knew them), and it Was my all time fave CD at the time it came out. My tastes had gotten a bit heavier in the ea

Very sad to hear. And on the 3 year anniversary of Jani Lane's untimely passing. Two tragic, tortured geniuses gone the same day, 3 years removed. RIP. He was a great comedian and actor. I often wondered if he suffered from manic depression/bipolar disorder. I've had loved ones suffer from it, so I'm very familiar with it. His comic persona seemed very manic to me. Tired me out just li

Thanks for the post :-) Been living under a rock (though apparently not a melodic one lol), so I had no idea this was out. After one listen, I really like it - as usual. They've got this sound down. Current fave is "Walk Another Mile". Stuck in my head and really relating to the lyrics, kind of an anthem for me at the moment. Downloaded the album and about to burn...whittled m

Was huge into Motley as a kid, started buying albums shortly before Doctor Feelgood came out. So when that was released, it was HUGE for me. Those guys were so larger than life. Had the Doctor Feelgood poster on my wall and everything. However, now that I'm older, I'm starting to think that, much like KISS, the Crue was more about selling an image and a lifestyle than the actual music. D

I know at this point I'm just talking to myself, once threads get almost a week old (hey, I could use the company lol), but I forgot to say how I got into Waltham via this site, so I just wanted to give props to MR.com for that. Was looking for new bands to get into in early '04 and I took a chance on 2 that were rated highly on this site, sight unseen. Or should I say sound unheard ;-) Harem

"Still in Love" is such a great song...been stuck in my head for days. Great anthem for those kind of idealistic, dreamer, eternally hopeful Lloyd Doblers of the world (or at least we are in our own mind lol) like me ;-) That and "You're Everything That I Want" are by far the best on the EP. They should have included "Wait It Out" on the EP. Great ballad. Far

Great stuff. Love these guys. Had hoped it would be a full length, but I'll settle for an EP...just happy that 5th song's been released. Love it. 4th song's not really my cup of tea. Kind of meathead jock-rock, lyrics do nothing for me, like something from the Rocky soundtrack (no offense to that lol). Though to be fair, they said that's what they were going for, so kudos to them for not be

Great CD. Just gave it a proper listen. Hooks, guitars, Paul's voice, true to life lyrics - all there. Some will always want a "Stick It" rehash (first listened to that album in 2001, liked some of the songs while others seemed dated), but if you approach with an open mind, I can't imagine too many being disappointed with this. Reminds me a lot of Bon Jovi's "Lost Highway"

Thanks, Ryan. When I was a kid, I guess it wasn't the mostly manly thing to admit liking OOTW era Europe, at least as compared to bands like Gn'R. So when peers would ask me about Europe, I'd kind of play the middle ground. "They're ok" lol However, now that I'm older and more comfortable being myself and with my tastes, I can totally admit being a sucker for that sound. So yeah,

Did not know "Look Away" is a "lost" Europe song...very interesting. And ironic, considering that whenever I hear Chicago's version (and I love the song btw, sucker for those big ballads), I think "this would make a damn fine Europe song" :-) Seems stylistically right up their alley (well, in their more commercial late 80s era). So I'm not surprised they recorded

Not on iTunes where you are? Weird, thought you were American like me :-) Sucks you can't hear them, then...they sound awesome. But no, don't worry about misleading me...if not for your post, I'd never have checked and been led to my iTunes...so I was glad to be "mislead" ;-)

Bottom line: like I said, I've been through a lot of shit these past few years, so I don't need additional shit when I'm trying to be nice and post about stuff that I dig here.

Thanks, Terry. I don't have time for negativity, so I don't know what else was said after my posts, but I just figured, just in case anything was said, I'd be the bigger man, explain where I was coming from, and move on. Sorry for the delay in posting it, just took me awhile to get to it and word it properly, making sure I was level headed. And I meant to say, I only mentioned my Dad initi

Since I mentioned fathers who have passed on in this topic, and since its still high up on the main page, I figured I'd also take this time to follow-up on my DarkHorse/Paul Laine response posts from a few weeks ago, in that topic I created, to anyone interested. To hopefully set the record straight. I posted most of this in that topic as well just now, but its an old topic and far from the mai

Guess I got a little upset there. Apologies to Andrew if I lost my cool a bit. Not gonna read any responses to those posts of mine, since I don't want to get upset again. I'll just say that, first, sorry I was so harsh on Paul's first album. That was an overreaction (hey, I'm an emotional guy) just meant to prove a point. Yes, I find the album derivative and maybe a bit pandering at time

Anyone here know of/a fan of the band Junk? UK power pop/pop punk...I guess the operative term back in the day was "nu-breed". For fans of 40Ft Ringo, Waltham, London Calling, Rubber, Son Of Dork, Nathan King, and Taxiride. Had a bunch of songs on soundtracks (first heard them in Dance Of The Dead)...you can check out their stuff here. My fave is "Life Is Good" - just damn

Speaking of Video On Demand, while I'm at it, the documentary on Butch Walker, "Out Of Focus", has been released there to rent. Not free, unlike Holliston :-/ But not too expensive either, considering other brand new On Demand titles. Its available on Verizon FIOS, the one I have, not sure about the other providers. Really good documentary, treated myself to it last night for my

The GWAR topic gave me the idea for this. Does anyone else watch the TV show Holliston? Its an original FearNet series. Kind of a sitcom/horror hybrid that also satirizes sitcoms (canned laughter in the wrong places, etc). Often has guest stars from the horror genre. Dee Snider has a recurring role as Lance Rockett, frontman for Van Halen tribute band Diver Down (or is it Dyver?). Also ha

Yeah, I understand, I have a hard time getting into sitcomes with canned laughter, too. I guess after awhile I'm kind of able to drown it out. Funny you mentioned it not being in the right spots...I actually think they do that on purpose, as kind of a spoof on sitcoms. An inside joke I guess. But yeah, really like the show...good mix of horror, comedy, satire, and heart. All the episodes are

Yeah, I must have just figured it was a problem with my cassette and didn't think much of it. Certainly didn't spoil the enjoyment of the song for me. I think some people get a bit too anal about stuff like that IMO (if it ruined the whole song for them I mean, not just that they noticed it in the first place). Like I said, my ears aren't super sharp like that I guess, where I can tell the dif
