It's not too hard to see this. Just think of every time you hear something and then say "that's just a bad version of (name of band other than the one you just heard)."

There definitely should be a second album from The Magnificent! Mario, can you get them into a studio and say "make a second album, even 'If It Takes All Night'"?

Okay, If anyone wants to put on a "band manager" hat, please give your thoughts: What choices does the band have when since the release of Painkiller, many bands have formed and shown the ability to "do Judas Priest" better than the original band in some cases? Either they do something like Screaming for Vengeance part 2 and get reviews like "breaking no new gro

It's a hard thing, because I'll bet that 90+% of club owners are clueless about music and just see bands as the means to sell overpriced alcohol. When club owners tell a band to "bring people", does anyone think that they'd be happy with 100 people dancing in front of the band not spending any money the whole night?

It's very Butch Walker-esque. Very curious how the rock fans will respond. I don't know if I see this being played on rock radio or the warped tour/hot topic kids making this their next "thing".

I wonder if I'm getting too into the semantics of "modern" being timing vs "modern" being sound. Kind of like when I was asking a while back if West Coast/East Coast AOR was about the sound or the region of the band or both and if you can have a New York band with a West Coast AOR sound or a California band with an East Coast sound.

I haven't kept up with DT since the Awake album. If you take everything they've done since then and got the best few songs, could you make a mix that can stand up to Images and Words and Awake?

Does best mean the best songs from everything he's even sang on? Or just his solo stuff?

I think they are taking him working with members of Journey to mean that he worked with the band, but I agree that it's not the same thing. At least it didn't say he "twerked", that's an altogether different animal.

I still wish there was a hard rock/glam metal/AOR equivalent of the Warped Tour............... Let's get the young/new bands out there dammit!

So then if I want to make a great "modern rock" playlist, what are the top bands? It seems to be so much harder of a genre to nail down. I mean, I'm not sure how many of you all remember great songs like: Somebody to Shove - Soul Asylum Shine - Collective Soul Backwater - Meat Puppets Everything Zen - Bush Hook - Blues Traveler Interstate Love Song - Ston

Heyyyyyyyyyyy, I was thinking about this on my work commute today. What makes a band get defined as "modern rock"? Sometimes you'll see bands whose style is called "alternative" also called "modern rock". Sometimes it's because a band can't be classified any other way. Sometimes it's because the band is new so the radio station calls them "modern rock

If you're the frugal type, 80s Kiss is the best era to be a fan of, because how much Kiss merch is possibly out there that doesn't have them in makeup?

The United States is a big place. Just being in one part of the US does not mean that you are near another. Maybe I should have said the NYC/NJ area.

I like it. It looks like the new songs fit into the set list nicely. It may be selfish of me, but I want them to become HUGE so that they will actually play shows in the states and I can see them live.

An example that no one brought up yet. When bands insult their fans by putting down their own albums/songs/etc. To me, that's like personally insulting someone's musical taste. Or when bands know that there are particular albums in their catalog that fans have a deep connection with and arrogantly claim that they will never make albums like those anymore. Here's one that made me stop li

Possible Solution?: Ozzfest/Warped Tour equivalent, but with bands like Bon Jovi/Leppard/Journey/Kiss/Aerosmith headlining and bands like H.E.A.T, Brother Firetribe, Treat, Harem Scarem, The Magnificent, Danger Danger (I know I'm forgetting a lot), etc stacking the bill? Ozzfest is no more, and if enough small bands could follow the Warped Tour model and get some headlining American bands

I was just thinking about this. When there is a band/solo artist with mostly amazing albums but maybe 1 or 2 that aren't good at all, do you get the lesser albums anyway to satisfy your "collector" OCD instinct, or do you avoid them because you don't want those songs ruining an otherwise perfect playlist when it's on shuffle? Because I know that we all have our own opinions, I di

I agree. Especially given the fact that in America, most of the biggest concerts are melodic rock/hard rock bands: Def Leppard, Motley Crue, Kiss, Aerosmith, Bon Jovi. Even bands like Night Ranger, Journey, etc still play bigger venues. Why is it so hard for Americans to get out of the "classic rock" bubble of those bands and enjoy new music by new bands that is along the same l

So far, I really like what I've heard. But I am also a big power metal fan, so I agree that your enjoyment will depend on how much of a genre stickler you are. Because I can get into a good song/catchy chorus no matter what genre it is, I like this album a lot. A great singer can bridge genres, (just look at all of the amazing songs in varying genres/influences that Queen were able t

I agree with the above comments about Riot Avenue. The first 2 albums were great, and they seemed to have lost their way on the last one. Hopefully this next one will mark a return to the catchy choruses.

The samples sound great. I've liked everything the band has done since the beginning. I know I can't do much about this living in the US using US iTunes, but just out of curiousity, are there bonus tracks for people in other countries?

Okay, here's 1 opinion: Yes, if Def Leppard never existed, there is no way that if you got those same members together, the output would sound like that. However, there is PLENTY of room for new bands to pick up slack when existing bands like Def Leppard drop the ball. Just take some major metal bands from the past few years: Avenged Sevenfold Killswitch Engage All That Remains Tr
