If in doubt, put out another Greatest Hits record!

Good album, but they didn't reach their apex until "Fire and Love" in my opinion... Similar growth to Harem Scarem debut to "Mood Swings"--a quantum leap in every way!

The production values really made the difference for me whether I could listen to them or not. Bands like Petra, Whiteheart, The Brave, and Barren Cross had bigger budgets and sounded beefy (typical 80's "wall of sound). Many of the others were tinny and barely listenable even if the music was decent.

Love a lot of those bands, but Barren Cross stands near the top for me. A slightly more commercial version of Iron Maiden (including voice). Great production too thanks to the Elefante brothers. A few of my favorites: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xrmvoe1dozE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=khDFrnqUOsk https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YcDaNX-Oji4

Nice! They seem completely re-energized! It reminds me of the energy of Weight of the World mixed with the melodic harmonies of Higher. Bring on the album!

Great song--classic Harem Scarem. I was reflecting on the genius of Pete Lesperance--this would have been a good "First Signal" song, but his awesome guitar riffs and solos elevate it to a different level.

I've only listened to the 90 second samples on ITunes, but was pleasantly surprised. A lot of life left in the band, and the ballad (Sun Will Never Set Again) sounds amazing. Just may up purchasing this one.

Also found this "mini-review/preview" from Blabbermouth-- HAREM SCAREM make it clear they still have something to say right from the start with the title track, "United", a chunky slice of guitar-driven melodic rock nirvana that kicks off their strongest studio outing since the early 2000s. From there, the album lifts off with well-crafted songs featuring big choruses w

Found this press release: HAREM SCAREM will release their 14th studio album on 12th May via Frontiers Music Srl. The new record of the Canadian Hardrocker will bear the name "United" and include eleven titles. "2017 marks the 30th anniversary of HAREM SCAREM and I can say that today we still write songs that are as enthusiastic as we did at the time," says Frontman Harry

You're probably not thinking of two songs by the same artist, but "Jesse's Girl" and "I Get Excited" comes to mind!

So very sad! I bought tickets last December to the Journey/Asia tour coming through my area in March, then was saddened when I heard he would be withdrawing due to poor health. But now this! One of the truly great, powerful, and unique voices of rock, an amazing songwriter, and underrated bassist. RIP

This is a great track. I've listened to it a few times already. On one hand, nothing new or original, but just a really well done ballad.

I haven't heard everything from it, but don't think it's bad at all.. I actually enjoy at least two of the songs I've heard.

Ugh--couldn't get through 60 seconds of that, even though the music is pretty decent. The lyrics just sink it.

Wetton's and Downes' twitter feed indicates they've been working on a new Asia album for the past few months. Maybe not with Frontiers this time??

What do your thoughts, Dan? Amazing how similar the voices actually are when you take out Rick Allen's... My take: Rick Savage has a more melodic sound than Elliot's and Collen's is a little gruffer. Prefer them both!

A rather dull video, but it did reinforce that I actually prefer Sav's and Collen's voice over Elliot's!

Glad to see Harem Scarem on the list! Any word about Journey or Asia? I know John Wetton is having some big health issues...

I listened to all of this way back in the day, but have forgotten most of it--any of those albums close to the Kansas sound? Where would be a good place to start revisiting his solo stuff (or AD?)

I'm shocked the worst power ballad in the history of rock n roll is not on this list: Poison's "Every Rose Has its Thorn" -- hate it with a passion.

Have never seen much love for "Caught in the Game" but I think it's one of their best.

The mighty Jaded is truly an epic song. Just when you think you've hit the chorus, you realize it's only the pre-chorus and it gets even bigger for the real chorus!

Agree-it's a fine line, because I get lost in some of these endless 16-track/80 minute long albums too, especially when there's filler. 8 songs, 33 minutes, on the other hand, is over all too quickly, especially when you're paying full price. A nice 10 to 11 songs, 45 minute album is perfect for these ears!

It looks like their FB is active. I just listened to two samples from their new album and there was a counter saying 8 days until the album's release. https://www.facebook.com/HMSLive/

"I've been funny, I've been cool with the lines.. ain't that the way love's supposed to be?" So much of Rick Springfield's lyrical genius is in there--pathos, humor, longing, bluster, etc.!

Was just thinking it's been nearly two years since 13 was released (how does the time fly by?). I think I'm ready for another dose of Scarem!

The opening riff: Yes, "Man on the Silver Mountain" but also "Youth Gone Wild."
