One of my favorites, too. I actually think it is one of Lou's best vocal performances.

Sunstrike wins it for me too. Great fun melodic rock with a little bit of a kick.

No doubt one of the best bands I have seen. Even on a bad night when Steve had an awful cold they still rocked it. I think I have seen them live more than any other band. If you get the chance, DO NOT MISS THEM!

Don't know about NYC, but if you hop over to New Jersey, we have two. The first is Vintage Vinyl in Edison. It has a huge selection (1000's of titles) of our type of music (melodic rock and metal) - mostly new and full price. Their used section is hit or miss and tend to be more radio friendly, but I have scored a few gems. Vintage Vinyl The second is the Princeton Record Exchange. It i

For me it is a couple of factors. 1) I know I am more critical. I have heard enough really good music that I know what is possible. The more great stuff I hear, the less patience I have for what doesn't measure up. 2) When companies like Frontiers pump stuff out over and over using the same song writers and producers, it all sounds the same. The music becomes generic. I don't have to l

Looks like they are giving STYX a run for their money in the live rehash market. However, no one is ever going to catch Whitesnake (I hope!)

This not meant to be piling on, but I do understand Hot Sauce's frustration (though he/she does come on pretty strong). I love this site and check it every day (have since about 2000 and will continue to do so). Unfortunately, I normally read Andrew's reviews for entertainment (in the good sense), just like his year end recaps. I enjoy his perspective and incorporate it into my purchasing choi

I am on the fence about picking it up, but everyone's comments have me intrigued. Jorn's stuff has been boring for years (IMO), but if it is anything like Hourglass or the ST Materplan, I'm in. On a related note, I must be in the minority, but I think the first Masterplan is much better than the second (though definitely good).

My favorite CD of the year so far, as well. Fortunate to see them with Amaranthe opening (also very good) in New York a couple of weeks ago (see thread somewhere below). Fantastic show. I enjoyed WT's previous Cd. It had several truly standout tracks. Hydra is all standout tracks. Here is a great live version of Edge of the World. You can tell how really good they are. Her voice is stunn

Was all set to close the window, because it was doing nothing for me. Then the chorus snuck in. This could actually be good. Will have to listen at home on my good speakers as opposed to these cheap ones at work.

I'm with you Kent. When I go to shows I am always surprised by the number of obscure concert shirts. I read the backs and am always surprised the bands really do come here, even if it is only the largest markets. I say these melodic rock bands need to have their management talk to some if the bands that do come and figure out how it's done.

I wish more folks could have been there, too. There was certainly room. And I must say, as great as some of the performances were (and there were several complete homeruns), the other fans were a huge part of why I had such a good time. Saying everyone was like family is pretty cliché, but it sure was easy to meet people and have a great time. I have never been to a show where nearly perfect

A lot of us have given brief first impressions or comments on a set or two, but it feels like it is time to really talk about the whole event. To start, those who didn't come sure missed out on some quality music and a great time. Now the details. The venue was perfect. I admit to being very skeptical when I pulled into the parking lot. The club is in a strip mall between a grocery store

I agree with BLM. I had no chance of getting a clear picture, because Eric never stood still. I cannot imagine what his parents and teachers went through when he was younger. He is either the most hyper person I have ever met or he was on speed. Though he was calm and cool for the meet and greet after the set, so he may just be that good of a showman! Either way, they blew the roof off the p

What a day! Everyone was good, but Johnny Lima was the band to beat. He rocked it from start to finish. That guy was having a blast and gave everything he had to the crowd and hung up until he took a picture with every fan. Absolutely the way it should be done. 7th Heaven proved once again that playing live makes all the difference. They are the best team on stage I have ever seen. You can'

Is anyone going to MRF planning to bring CDs to trade? I had posted a while back about bringing CDs to trade or sell (with profits going to Andrew). My guess is Andrew was too busy to set up something formal for us, like a room at the hotel. We could still do it on our own. I have a bunch of CDs that would probably only go for a couple of dollars on ebay, so it isn't worth posting them, b

Wow!!! I just went back and listened to Edge of Thorns, Timo should be paying royalties. On the upside, this made me pull out the Savatage CD. What a great disc. This and Handful of Rain are my favorites, with Handful having the most impressive example of counterpoint singing I have ever heard. Check out "Chance." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TboNW5AiHA8

A couple of years ago when Loverboy and Pat Benatar opened for Journey, Pat just killed it. I had never seen her live before, but was sure to see her do a full set as headliner last month.

I am torn between Hi Infidelity and Vital Signs as my two favorites. I think the nod goes to REO due to "Keep on Loving You," which is one of my favorite songs of all time. All of the other "classic" albums have a couple of tracks I skip. Those two have no skips for me.

Funny how this happens, but it often does on this board. Someone mentions an album and you can bet at least one of us just listened to it, as well. In this case, I had Can't Get There... in my car last week and still think it is their most solid front to back. Laid back yes, but it is the only one I still regularly play from Great White.

Thoroughly enjoy this disc.I don't have any of their earlier material, because the albums sounded hit or miss, but there are some great tracks hidden. If they were on iTunes I would add a few more to my collection, but this CD is really good start to finish.

Just ordered mine from their website. $15 shipping included. After listening to the tracks on their site, I think I like all but one or two, but out of 20 I can't complain. Most of it sounds great! Definitely better than Synergy, which I did like but wasn't as strong as the previous couple. Looking forward to seeing them again at MRF4. they are one of the most entertaining bands I have e

They actually are the worst self-promoters I have seen. I saw them on their tour with journey and Pat Benatar. They didn't even mention they had a new Cd out. It turns out, they even had it for sale at the show - in only one of the stalls, sitting on the counter, behind the salesperson, under the shirts. Fortunately, I happened to notice the Cd in the back and asked what it was. the salesper

The '02 Cd is caller Spirit Dancer and has some wonderful tracks. The title track was co-written with Jim Peterik as a memorial to Van Stephensen. One Night in New Orleans is also excellent. Thanks for sharing about the new CD. It is a definite must buy, as I think all of their albums are terrific. I am fortunate to have seen them live twice, and they sounded very good. The harmonies al
