Love, LOVE, L*O*V*E this band. Would love to see their stuff get the Rock Candy treatment!

Yup, we're definitely on the same page, buddy! I agree with everything you said.

Fair enough. It's pretty hard to like a cover if you don't like the vocals. But personally, I do like 'em. I could do without the dramatic arm-swinging, etc., but I think she does the Legendary singer justice. Different strokes, I guess...

I have to disagree on this one, Steve. Any way you slice it, it's a well-done cover - better than many/most, IMHO. Factor in the ages of the musicians involved, and their interest in "our" music, then add to that the fact that they're all kids from the same family, and I'd say that this, indeed, pretty special. Just my opinion...

It was definitely "meat & potatoes" American metal (in the vein of Q5, Riot, Savatage, etc.), but that brand of metal holds a special place in my heart. Plus, as has been said, the vocals were very strong. They weren't Queensryche in the songwriting department, but they were solid, IMHO, and some of their tracks were quite strong.

Hmmmm...maybe I will have to investigate then. It's hard for me to get motivated to check out anything in the country vein, but you've piqued my interest. Cheers!

Funny, I always much preferred Sweet Dreams to Metalized. It contains both of my favorite Sword tracks, The Trouble Is and Life on the Sharp Edge. In any event, I too am stoked about this. Rick Hughes is a powerhouse of a singer and I enjoy everything he's done.

I was inquiring about these guys a while back and found out that they were (are?) working on a second album called "Faith or Fear." Like you, I really enjoy the debut, so I'm looking forward to a new album.

Don't own a vinyl copy. Don't have the ability to rip vinyl to MP3 or disc anyways. It's a great thought, though.

Thanks for this info. I guess we can stop wasting our time searching for it then. Cheers!

I just found out that my neighbour is a huge fan of this '70s Canadian glam/rock act. He and his friend have been scouring the internet to try to find the s/t debut album in CD format, but haven't had any luck. I thought I'd give it a go, and I can't find any trace of that album in CD format. Does anyone here know if it exists? He's a good guy, and has had more than his fair share of health

This sounds good to these ears. Perhaps a little more mellow than some of their early stuff, but not overly so. If this is any indication of what a new album would sound like, I'd be all over it.

I realize that the s/t debut and Subject are the albums that most people consider to be essential by Aldo Nova, but I just have to say that I see Twitch being every bit as strong as those two - especially Subject, which just always seemed long on instrumentals, and a tad short on actual songs, IMHO. (Realistically, Subject has 8 actual songs vs. Twitch's 9.) Tonight, Rumours of You, and If Look

Oh, wow. I'm surprised to see that GDE is one of your favorites. Don't get me wrong, I love a lot of their recent output - No More Hell to Pay is my all-time favorite Stryper album and Fallen is great too. I loved The Covering and its one new track, God, is among my favorite Stryper tracks. But for me GDE was a major letdown after their other recent output. Maybe I'll have to give it ano

Saw them a couple years ago opening for Foreigner. They were superb. They've all - including Johnnie Dee - still got it.

Hey T-Man, I think there are a few vinyl stores in our province, and there seem to be more and more popping up. I am hopeful that, at some point, I might stumble upon one that is looking to add product. I could help to bolster some store's a hard rock/metal section and their classic rock section as well. But who knows, it might never happen. Ironically, one of our province's news channels

Hey Carl, thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts. To be honest, I have considered selling stuff of one LP at a time. Although I realize that I would probably stand to make a lot more money that way, I am also really reluctant to put this kind of time and effort in. Being able to sell the whole thing off in one fell swoop is a hugely attractive idea for me. I mean, at $5 each (C

My wife would love for me to downsize my CD collection, but that isn't going to happen. And one day when I kick off, my oldest daughter would love to inherit it. I have hung onto my (approximately 600) LPs which I bought in the '70s and '80s. I've managed to track down CD copies of most of them (or at least most of the ones that I want). I'm hanging onto the LPs until one day when I c
