Thanks, everybody. I took a rough tally and it seems the albums receiving the most praise are as follows... Obsession, No Heavy Pettin', Lights Out, Wild, Willing & Innocent, Force It, Walk on Water. Phenomenon, No Place to Run, Mechanix, Misdemeanor, and Making Contact received quite a few kudos as well. I was impressed with the number of different favorites. There were six or sev

As a guy who was pretty late to the party (and who took a while) getting into this band, I know which albums have grown on me the most. But I'd be curious as to how other folks who are much more acquainted with them would rank their albums (or at least indicate their top-ten???). Anyone care to take the time to share their thoughts with me?

Now Don is gonna chime in, lol!... There is one thing that probably shapes, influences, molds, and impacts kids more than anything else: Investing time and energy into them. And it's getting harder and harder to do so, in this world where so many families are struggling to stay together. And even in cases where they are together, both parents are working long and hard. It's difficult to

I get your love for Dynasty, but for a lot of Kiss fans, their foray into pop (even disco!!!) territory was not readily accepted. To me, it proved that they were versatile and could even do a good job of playing pop and disco stuff. Unmasked served to further confirm that for me. I love it as well.

Off the top of my head... Kiss - Unmasked and The Elder are widely seen as duds, mistakes, disasters, or whatever (Dynasty too, to some extent). I like 'em both. Judas Priest's Turbo is hated by some, but I love it. Saxon's move into more commercial territory didn't tend to be all that well-received by many fans. I like all of those albums (especially Crusader). A lot of folks see

Funny, I always considered it to be a cool bonus to get one side of new studio tracks. And I was happy that the material on Alive II focused on their second trio of albums, rather than re-visiting (almost rehashing?) the first three albums, which were so well documented by Alive!.

I understand and fully support the opinion of the overwhelming majority on here - Alive! is a landmark album and would probably be your wise choice. Having said that, Alive II was my first ever hard rock album, and for this reason, it's my personal favorite of the live albums. I also really like the MTV Unplugged album. The acoustic renditions of some of the songs on there are pretty speci

Dennis Ward is amazing. Don't know much about Al, but I'm sure that Dennis will be a good replacement. Hope that this doesn't put a new Khymera album on hold.

I recently went on a road trip in my truck. I forgot to throw in some CDs, but this one was in the storage compartment. I probably played it 4-5 times through, with back-to-back spins. It's grown on me, and I enjoy it, but I'm still totally sold. I must say that I'm shocked that this release is getting praise, given how folks around these parts generally feel about Frontiers releases. Ther

Their album entitled "Salute" is a really classy and enjoyable slice of MHR, but I have never heard of anything else done by this band. Was this album a one-off?

I am a reasonably big fan of Mama's Boys and agree with all of the Preacher's recommendations. During the early years, they were a simple hard rock trio, but with a few unique aspects - they were brothers, their music sometimes featured a bit of a Celtic influence, and one of the brothers played the electric violin at times. To be honest, I'm not sure that any of these things would entice m

Sitting back and reading this thread, it's weird because I think that you both have valid points... I have to agree with Beau in that Dokken never produced one song that became instantly recognizable to the general public. I'm talking about something that might be used in a beer commercial, or to advertise a classic rock station, or in a show like Rock of Ages or something like that. Like it

Looking forward to Abbath too....or perhaps a shower instead. ;-) ...On a serious note, though, I've been disappointed by the two I was most looking forward to this year - Find Me and First Signal. Crazy Lixx is good. Hoping that Defiants is a strong release.

I rarely listen to thrash or music this heavy anymore (I still can't believe I'm saying that), but I did happen across the title track last year and purchase it from iTunes. I haven't checked out the rest of the album, but maybe I should, given how much I like the title track.
