I think constructive criticism is fair game and Andrew has responded to a lot of critiques in the past several weeks (and addressed them positively). It's a different matter when a patron has bellied up to the bar for years on end, and received countless drinks on the house, but then gets bitter about the quality of the free beer--"hey, these mugs used to be 12 oz and now they're 10--what g

..is that you, CCM? Some of the same styling of word choice and phrases, just a lot angrier!

...And am I hearing things or is there a little bit of "Crazy Train" in that first riff!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xFlWfBfAfkM&feature=youtu.be Sounds all right, like a mix of Overload and Human Nature. The long layoff seemed to bring their energy back, but I wouldn't say the songs are classic based on the samples..

Not familiar with that song title, but I'm by no means an authority on The Brave's discography.

Here's a sample: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gTFutAKoWqU Fun to hear John Elefante's soaring harmonies on the pre-chorus & chorus.

Can't really add much to what Brent said. Battle Cries is a fantastic release very much in the vein of classic Def Leppard and Bon Jovi. The new samples don't live up to that--in fact, it sounds like a completely different band and the female vocals don't do a bit for me.

The debut is tops for me. During their heydays in the mid-80's, I ranked Heartbeat City as its equal, but as the original poster said, it is definitely a product of its time and has grown cliche (hence the reason I now prefer the tracks that didn't get airplay). As for Candy-O, it is very good, but it lives mostly off the momentum of the debut in my opinion. "It's All I Can Do," &q

Fantastic debut album.. Agree it is in the Journey/Storm vein, and matches up nicely with a few updated musical touches.

Love this one too... it's kind of their "under the radar" release, but some really great tracks. Almost no commercial success, though, so IV was do or die...

Good read, but he lost me a bit with "Tell the Truth" is equal to "Revolver." Ummm... Reminds me of Dan Quayle comparing himself to Kennedy in the VP debates. Lloyd Bentsen: "Senator, you're no Jack Kennedy.."

I find nothing wrong with the production, but the Leppard stylings are just a bit much for me. Almost every song, I find myself saying, "ahh, there's Pour Some Sugar On Me" or "There's God of War" but just not quite as good. Obviously, I know the intent is to mimic Def Leppard, but they are clearly good songwriters and musicians in their own right and I, for one, would e

Great news! Hopefully the downtime recharged their creative batteries a bit. I really enjoyed the new songs on the Mood Swings rerecording.

Duncan's "revelation from god"-tongue in check sarcasm? or serious? The answer to that would dictate my response...

Agree with the above sentiments. This was the one track that stuck out for me in the samples and, sure enough, the song is awesome. I am still looking forward to hearing a monster ballad in the Night Ranger tradition--hoping this album has at least one of those!

John Francis Bongiovi Jr was born March 2, 1962. Looks like 52 to me!

Just saw this on the news. Apparently he has written a work of fiction that is getting good reviews. He seems to be an artist whose genius springs from his own tortured soul. http://www.foxnews.com/entertainment/2014/05/05/rick-springfield-muses-about-god-balance-in-first-novel-magnificent-vibrations/?intcmp=features

Coolest for me is "Monkey Business" by Skid Row. Awesome acoustic lead-up to that full-throated scream, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xmOUvRlGsW8

Darn catchy, though not quite a classic to my ears. That still hasn't stopped me from listening about 10 times already!

Terry, not to be the vocabulary-police here, but "nadir" means "low point" --I assume you mean "zenith" or "high point" etc..

Surprised no one has mentioned the Don Dokken demo of the "Blackout" recordings shortly after Klaus Meine lost his voice. Here's one sample (though interestingly, the comments below are in disagreement whether that is Dokken or Meine on vocals)... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bWSHlUBjAwg

Great album, although I find their sound to be a bit dated at this point. Not too surprising considering it is over 20 years old. I believe a few of their songs ended up on the first Steelhouse Lane album such as https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e1LEZgQYNLA

Spectacular movie, I must say. I was expecting "good" and happily got "great." A little bit of Bourne Identity in there, but I love those movies too. It does seem a little overkill with some big new superhero blockbuster released every few months, but with the quality this high, I'll gladly ride it out.

The music is catchy, but can't get past the cringe factor of the lyrics.
