Agree with everything said about The Doors. My brother and best friend are big fans, and I have never been able to wrap my head around this. Although I'm not a big Led Zep fan at all (I figured I'd be alone on here in that one!), I do get that they had talent and that they helped to pave the way for other hard rock acts. It's not like there was a whole lot of hard rock happening back then,

It's a busy time right now with the end of the school year approaching, along with one of my daughters graduating from high school and another graduating from university. But I'll PM you at some point so you can hear these guys. I think you'd like 'em.

For me, I've particularly noticed a lot of "non-traditional" MHR albums appearing on a number of lists. By making a conscious decision not to include any on my own, it actually made the job of choosing a little easier by narrowing the field somewhat. But it definitely resulted in some absolute gems being left off of my list (Goo Goo Dolls, Tal Bachman, Vertical Horizon, etc.). Th

Yo, DJ Rokalot! I noticed your "musical wasteland" comment under '97 and also the fact that you are a Harem Scarem fan. Just wondering if you've heard 1997's "Broken Saviours" album by Emerald Rain. They have a very Harem Scarem-esque sound and I believe that some of the HS guys were involved with this band.

Love this track, and the whole album as well. By far my favorite Bon album without a dud track to be found. But my favorite tracks by the band are probably For Those About to Rock, You Shook Me... (I never tire of it), and Let's Get it Up.

Thanks for sharing this, Asa. I have seen some of these other videos. I guess what really captured my attention in the other one was the idea of having a "powerhouse" vocalist - one with range, and variety, and power in his voice - doing vocals for a thrash band whose singer, despite having his own unique style, lacked all of these things. For me, it just brought a fascinating ne

At various times, this act has come to my attention. Some big names involved in the three project-albums: Brian May, Ray Gillen, Glenn Hughes, John Wetton, Max Bacon, Cozy Powell, Don Airey, etc. And yet, they aren't an act whose name has come up here on a very regular basis. Any opinions and/or insight on their trio of albums?

Sorry to hear about your bout with COVID, but happy to hear that you are on the mend. I bought Aria as a result of some of the folks on here who were singing its praises around a year ago. Good album, although my favorite Payne album is still Aqua.

It's definitely an unfair over-generalization to suggest that all thrash bands had sub-par singers. I've often heard of the Belladonna-Journey connection, and John Bush was a powerhouse vocalist as well. Exciter's Dan Beehler was a powerhouse screamer who could probably give Halford a run for his money and Overkill's Bobby Ellsworth is no slouch either. Annihilator has had a number of strong v

It was always Freddie Mercury that I heard about whenever this came up in the past. I'm pretty sure that Jim Gillette (Nitro, former husband of Lita Ford) used to claim to have a 5 or 6 octave range. I know that he had his own vocal lesson program. I used to be pretty impressed with singers with crazy ranges, and I guess I still do view it as being quite a gift and/or accomplishment. B

There's been some discussion on here over the past few weeks about thrash metal. It was pointed out that, unlike other forms of metal, thrash acts didn't always have the strongest vocals and/or vocalists. Megadeth was mentioned numerous times in these conversations, along with a few other acts. I came across this video recently, and it's interesting to hear what a band like Megadeth might ha

Icon for me as well, although unlike most of the folks around here, I think I probably prefer the debut to NOTC. Coincidentally, Melidian is in my truck's CD player right now, and has been for a solid week or so. It's definitely grown on me, but it's not in the same league as NOTC.

I was thinking the same thing. Pat Benatar's "Shadows of the Night" starts with the full chorus. In terms of what I think of the practice, I wouldn't want any act to do it too often, but every once in awhile, it's a nice change-up.

Someone on this board once described him as a "runaway train," vocally. Nail on head, IMHO. Talented vocalist, but his tendency to over-sing everything, sadly, makes him unlistenable. Such a waste...

I'm not a big fan of the debut either. The second ("A New Promise," I think?) is good, but it's no "Greatest Wonder." Kind of like listening to "Pyromania" and then expecting "High 'n Dry" to be just as high in quality. Album #2 is good, a big progression from the debut, a HUGE step in the right direction, but still not equal to album #3, which was true

I suspect that you and I have very similar taste in music, based on what you had to say about Khymera and Blanc Faces in your post below (I responded to it). I'm a little perplexed by your post on this one, though. I agree that this track is better than anything from their last album, "A World of Fools," but that was their third album. Their second album ("II") is, IMHO

It's funny that you should single this album out. It is my favorite album of (at least) the last couple of decades. Free Spirit's "Pale Sister of Light" and Blanc Faces' "Falling From the Moon" would be #2 and #3. The Greatest Wonder was also my most-listened-to album for several years as well, and I firmly believe that it stacks up against Escape, Frontiers, 4, Vital Sig

I've been a little bummed before (Dio, Jamison, etc.) but Neil Peart's passing really bugged me. Rush was such a big part of my youth. And it just came out of nowhere. I had absolutely no idea that he was even sick.
