I'm pretty much in tune with you on this but I will say, Battle of my own is one of my faves on the disc. When it kicks in full band it's absolutely wonderful. Heavy, melodic, epic & truly something else (Elliot bust a nut on the vocals and has rarely sounded better in the past 20 years). Love the great tunes However much like yourself and have a SoSo about the others. Invincible is mis

Absolutely. I'm digging Battle of my own too...As Andrew said, it's very Zeppelinesque & Coverdale/Page but when it opens up, its really quite something. Those tracks "Let's Go, Dangerous, All Time High and Wings along with We Belong" are instant winners but there's a lot more I'm really digging. Just a couple of tracks I'm So So about. On a 14 Track album I'd say that's a huge s

I'm really digging it myself after 1 spin through. There's a couple of fluff tracks that I've come to expect over the years since Euphoria but there's a lot I absolutely love. Let's go I'm aware has divided most people but I think it's a gem. Hooky, simple & has enough pop sus to be a commercial winner. Dangerous & All time high I've lived with for some time now. Love 'em both.

It's quite self explanatory... You feel Slang the album is overrated yet Slang the song is the best thing on it... Many feel the album is a hugely underrated gem however in spite of its title track which is possibly the weakest song on the album. Does that make any more sense?

Yeah, I'm on board too having heard those 3 tracks. The latter 2 especially, "All time high" being my favourite of the bunch & quite possibly over everything they've released since 'X.

Slang is the standout "worst track" on an otherwise great album. It's rated highly because of it's diversity but Slang (the song) is the only real clunker. That's possibly why you don't understand the praise it often gets. I do love Adrenalize however.

Thanks Richard for the feedback. We are really pleased with the new songs, both got an airing at HRH AOR 2 & a new album is in the works (hopefully with a release later this year). For the curious, the 2 new tracks are available at the following places for download https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/a-love-affair-single/id840250541 http://www.amazon.co.uk/Love-Affair-Dante-Fox/dp/B0

ESTWB at the End of Lock Up is Jimi doing the Classic Survivor track & I think it was a single around 1989/90. The film also features "Vehicle" from Jim Peterik's Ides of March. Whilst I think most of the soundtracks to his 80's films were a product of their time, most soundtracks feature some great artists & Naturally, Survivor/Peterik/Jamison feature in 3 of his movies (Roc

I've battled with Hodgkin's twice in my life (10 years apart) & having been there wish him the very best. The Cure rate is a positive sign, the treatment however is gruelling both on the body & mind. His positivity will be what pulls him through & a sheer dose of good fortune.

Tommy...Chord progressions have been exhausted over the test of time granted....but does this mean all new songwriting efforts should steer well clear of what's considered "sellable" or indeed "commercial" in favour of artistic liscence & banging out a set of awkward, disjointed efforts in the name of originality? Good songs WILL shine through but because we/you arrived

Jeff's an absolutely wonderful singer but seriously not a good fit for the band. It depends on what they're after but other than his incredible vocals, he just wouldn't be right in both age & image methinks. I could however be wrong.

It was and is a struggle. I barely like Hip today...merely for the superb drum fill at the intro. Bar that...there ain't much else to like. A shame indeed and a band really confused as to where to go following the grunge explosion.

Slang is the most hideous track on an otherwise stellar album of great songs. One of my faves being the Vivian penned Work it out.

Again...the mid section on peacemaker die is utterly superb. Despite the voiceover, the backing music is sublime. It's an odd album for sure and the kind of album the the term "grower" was designed for. So many good tracks that aren't your typical single worthy effort. Peacemaker Die, Colour me Blind, Politicalamity, and as mentioned, the third side, The Truth 3 tracks (everything un

On of my favourite albums... The truth, last 3 tracks are utterly stunning. I do think however following on from pornografitti...they showed their intelligence a little too early, put a lot of people off. A shame for sure as I feel it's by far one of the most underrated albums ever released.

I guess it all depends on what era you grew up in & what attracted you to the band. For me...I love late 80's/early 90's Aerosmith...much like I do Def Leppard etc... but they forced their way into my eardrums post 1990 so... Rocks is superb tho' granted & the first of the bands peaks so to speak. PUMP being another for me. Just an opinion tho'

I think it's a great album to be honest...it's only downside is it's slghtly soiled production. Typically modern sounding mushymized to the max. Never more evident than when listening to the recent "Greatest hits" Cd that has "born to follow" pitted alongside some of their best work both in production & songwriting. Sounds practically dull & limp by comparison. I do fe

Whilst I'm pretty sure The Lepps are all "mates for life".... Jovi on the other hand seem more like a business proposition these days. I do however feel that when some bands survive long enough to hit that Nostalgic longevity reward...the business side takes pressident over friendships.
