One can only Hope that when there's A Change in style/sound it is A natural progression, not contrived or forced. It's A great thing when musicians stay true to themselves and also when they are first and foremost making music for THEMSELVES, like Ronnie Montrose, Steve Hackett, Kate Bush. A "take it or leave it" kind of thing. It might not mean success but at least it is Brave.

Kansas from the debut up to Audiovisions are sheer perfektion and I admit things sent A bit downhill. But just A bit. Would like to add Frank Marino/Mahogany Rush to this debate. No output is less than "good" (From The Hip 1992) but most are pure excellence (What's Next 1980, IV from 1976).

Had this question been asked around 1985 I could have replied Aerosmith, Rush, Black Sabbath but just about every band with 40 year old careers has A few clonkers. But I have to say Kansas Come pretty Close.

Cheap Trick's debut would have been A Perfect one if it wasn't for "Mandocello".

Not sure if it counts but 70's UK band Dirty Tricks released A comeback-album as A DOWNLOAD ONLY in 2009 so A proper CD-issue would be Nice. Especially as the material is better than reunionalbums often tends to be. And like someone mentioned; Wiggy Bits!

The music is quite enjoyable, recommendable, hard, heavy and sometimes southern but really they should lose the "Blackfoot"-tag and head out on their own. By the sound of it they could pull it off without this ridiculous concept of a former member overlooking things.

What's not to like about debut? IF You, like Me, think hardrock from the 70's is Where it's at. As for their career as A whole, my interest in them waned considerably after "Grace under pressure". Not sure why.

First three are the only studio albums I Care for and their "Live Sky" from 1978 is real gem, too, as får as livealbums go. I usually dont pay much attention to lyrics but Palumbo's are very clever, funny, odd and thoughtprovoking. Superb musicians, the bassist and drummer, especially, lock in very well. Favetrack: "Nuclear Apathy".

Like Always with lists one don't agree. Many great bands,like Angel, but in their Case I cannot understand choosing Sinful över the debut. Also would have liked A couple of obscurities ön there, like Surrender (with Zappacosta) and Face Dancer's "This world".

Sheer Greed is great. Short, punchy and quite innovative songs. Very refreshing when it came out in 1980. Still is.

Yes indeed, those Plankton albums are among the best. They are admirers of Wishbone Ash and You can definitely hear that in their music. They're even paying tribute to those guys by covering FUBB. Glad someone mentioned There And Back by Jeff Beck, one Big favourite of mine. In 1975 A Swedish band called Lotus released än absolutely amazingly selftitled album. Short, almost jazzy but highly

Swedish band Bridge To Mars, definitely. Former guitarist and drummer of Glenn Hughes' band have formed this trio, delivering modernsounding old style hardrock. Very guitarorientated but no soloing for the sake of soloing .

Not exactly my favourite album of his but it has been quite a while since last time I listened so it's probably time to give it another go. Actually, I've always prefered the Bob James-fronted albums and the Gamma years. Not forgetting another "lost" album - Open Fire.

Fly by night is really cool! Myself I have framed the debutalbums by Angel, Starz and 70's UK band Dirty Tricks. All great covers and awesome music.

Anyone familiar with 70's band Diamond REO? They recorded three albums between 75-79 and the first and the last of those are, IMO, rubbish. But the one in the middle, Dirty Diamond, is pure Class. A prime example of how great hårdrock from that era can be. Mean, hard, heavy and with a guitarsound so Perfect it blows You away.

My first real footballhero, along with Kaiser Franz. This really hurts and is another reminder (as if we ever needed one) that time just marches on in an accelerating manner. Will never forget his tricks and turns on the pitch, a joy to watch.
