Have any of the first three Asia albums ever been remastered? All three could use it!

So what is the bad blood all about? He left in the mid-80s for a solo career. Happens all the time, but doesn't mean you need to hang on to bitterness for the next 30 years. Especially when the HoF comes calling...!

Wow, really? Holy Diver alone has "Stand Up and Shout," "Gypsy," "Rainbow in the Dark," "Invisible," and others that seem far more uptempo than the mid-paced, chugging songs of this new album. It's still good stuff--just needs a greater mix of speeds imho.

Though not really part of this genre, what a ground-breaking, funky, and AWESOME band. Simply impossible to listen to these songs and not tap your feet! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gs069dndIYk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lrle0x_DHBM RIP Maurice White

Not bad, but why must Phil Collen forever be shirtless? Is it little man syndrome?

Certainly Coup de Grace was their high watermark!

Good news, especially considering their last album was a near masterpiece and I had heard that might be their swan song at one point. Not to read too much into it, but did it sound from that press release like they might have tweaked their sound or style? Hopefully another slab of classic rock, rather than gone modern or country style?!

This article got me thinking: http://www.cnn.com/2016/01/20/entertainment/greatest-american-rock-band-feat/index.html Hard to argue with the Eagles. Some other ideas: -Kiss -Aerosmith -CCR -Beach Boys Some of their other suggestions are a little cringeworthy (Nirvana? The Ramones?!)

Agree with those three, but would add "I Think I Like It" to your list.

You briefly mentioned "Damn Yankees"--there was that interesting interview with either Jack Blades or Tommy Shaw about meeting him for the first time and wondering how this character could possibly fit in to the mix. They gave him credit for some melodic chops on those first two albums that no one had ever seen from him. Most of Damn Yankees' hits are clearly Tommy Shaw-driven wit

"Miles Away" gets my vote, though both are good. Agree with an earlier poster that "Spell I'm Under" is their top ballad.

I was hoping "The War Has Begun" would be the first single as that was the sample that popped out the most last month. Great song!

Agreed. It's a great song that gets to second gear AND has real electric guitars

I wish I could hear the version that some fans rave about sonically. Again, beating a dead horse here, but it sounds so compressed and "boomy" at times (especially those first three songs). The worst part is, it flares unexpectedly within individual songs.

Not sure either one has let their faith drown out the music.

And yet reports are that his live show is awesome. Makes me wonder how Adams and bands like Boston can be so inspired playing their back catalog yet still record such dreck.

Sure, new music would be great, but if memory serves, a LOT of people got screwed of their money/promised merchandise/CD's last time by that egomaniac. That travesty was compounded when RSC went on some self-righteous tirade about illegal downloading while never attending to his own commitments to deliver to the fans who LEGALLY PAID and never received.

Add me to the group who thinks "Promises" is superior. But "Dangerous" is still very good.

I think BiB is stronger as an album, but FTATR is my favorite AC/DC SONG!

Good ol' "Revolver"--a very rare masterpiece where Danger Danger teamed up with the Beatles! Original post edited :)

Much prefer Laine's voice as well (cue endless debate), though Revolve was absolutely top-notch and probably my favorite DD album ever.

Always enjoy their music and very well produced. Never completely sold on the voice unfortunately. And for the life of me, isn't that Eclipse's bass player on the drums in this video?!

Her replacement is surely better but I don't know the specific reasons for the switch.

Jamesrock, I thought the same thing-their best song since "It's My Life."

100% reviews always chafe at me a bit, but the new Degreed is very, very good. I find myself not only humming the songs hours and days after I've played the album, but also eager to return to it. Great stuff!

I didn't manage to finish it, but from what I saw, Gunnar looked pretty humorless.
