I liked the previous "new" version, and while I thought some of the griping was a bit much, I have to agree with all of the above. This combines the best of the old and the new very well. It works. This is definitely a winner. Everyone should be happy. Nice job, and thanks for being so responsive to those of us who made suggestions. Terrific customer service.

Can't imagine calling "Frederiksen Denander - Baptism By Fire" West Coast AOR. It's a great melodic rock record in my book. I always think of very mellow stuff like Adolfo posted above.

I am drawing a blank at the moment, but I met a guy at MRF4 who said he or his brother was Ratt's manager. He was over by Andrew's table, maybe during Mitch malloy's set. He was with one of the bands, because he was behind the table. We talked for awhile. He swore there would be another RATT album. Does this ring any bells for you, Andrew?

6. Y&T 10
This is a big question mark for me. I like Y&T and think they are great live, but I have never been able to get into 10. It is the only CD I have purchased THREE TIMES! I kept thinking I was missing something and it would click, but it never did - and I'm NOT buying it a fourth time. :) Favorite is Down for the Count, but all of their albums have some very good songs.

Good call, that is a terrific album. I think I'll listen to that next. For me, I can get it down to about 10: Scarecrow - Avantasia The Very Best of Chris Deburgh Blackhawk's Greatest Hits Smoke & Mirrors - Lifehouse Devotion - Mark Spiro (which I didn't even like when I first heard it!) Anthology - Don Williams Generation Wild - Crash Diet Let Your Love Flow: 20 Years of Hits -

I would love have a good copy of the Don Barnes solo album. You can find most of the tracks on Youtube, but a complete album would be great. I have asked Andrew to post it on MRX, and he said he would, but I must have missed it (hint, hint, nudge, nudge...).

I really hate it when singers put themselves out there for hire. They jump from band to band, seemingly looking for a paycheck. They take away from any one band having an identity and lose their own identity in the process. David Reece is just the latest in a long line of "go to" replacements. We all know who they are. Its a shame really, because they are usually good singers in th

A few that haven't been mentioned that I think are great: Ronnie Atkins (Pretty Maids - sounds like two completely different singers, can do very heavy and very melodic) Zac Stevens (Savatage - Check out Handful of Rain CD: amazing) Andi Deris (Helloween - Better than Raw, 7 Sinners CD: incredible) Tom Englund (Evergrey - Torn, Glorious Collision: dark but so powerful) Piet Sielck

I have also thought that there were a lot of repeat bands over the years, so I made a quick table (ok, it took longer than I thought) to check. The festival has been running for 7 years (including 2015). Here is the scoop on M3 trivia: 1) A total of 72 bands have played the M3 Festival since it began in 2009. 2) Only 5 bands (Whitesnake, Scorpions, Loudness, Europe, and Krokus) have been

Hey Andrew, I just completed the redesign of a new website for my company, as the previous site was eight years old. I figured it would take about 90 days. It took eight months, and the kicker is we are already putting together a growing list of updates for phase two (which will cost even more money and time)! I was told by my developer to have the site go live, let visitors play with i

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.

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
