Hi Figge, You might also want to check out DeGarmo & Key. Tracks like "Family Reunion" and "Hand In Hand" are, perhaps, slightly edgier than SCC, but generally in the same vein. Amazingly well-crafted and hook-laden stuff with great melodies, musicianship, and harmonies, IMHO. Check it out... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EQ0YI2Yf5po "Hand In Hand" http:

...Funny that you'd mention these guys, Mick, as I was recently playing this album for the first time in years. Definitely solid. Also from Canada and from the same era ('91/'92), have you heard the s/t Saints & Sinners album? It's also quite strong, IMHO. Oh, and one more from '91: Canadian Christian MHRockers Siloam's "Dying To Live." On a totally different note, I've gotta

...These guys can do no wrong in my opinion. In a similar vein, I'm very fond of The Calling too. Come to think of it, it's about time for a new album from them, I'd think. Cheers, MooseMan NP - "Come To Me" - Danny Danzi: "Somewhere Lost In Time"

Singer is good, but doesn't sound as RJD-like on the remaining tracks. I think there's even some sax on a track or two (?!). I'll hook you up at some point, if you're interested.

Hi all, A while back there was a thread about Pet Hate and their lead vocalist Alistair Terry. PH's "Bad Publicity" and Alistair Terry's "Yonge At Heart" solo album were both on my "LPs That Will Probably Never Be Released On CD" list. It seems to me that there were others who indicated an interest in getting these albums as well. Well, thanks to Tony (THANKS, To

Metropolis!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! "The Power of the Night" is AOR bliss. I can't believe it was a one-off. What a shame. And, I'm not sure if anyone else has mentioned... -21 Guns: "Salute" is essential listening for any MHR fan, IMHO. -Q5: "Steel The Light" totally rocked my world when I first heard it. Still does, to tell the truth. -Heaven: Both albums are solid

I haven't commented on this album yet either. Basically, I'd agree with the idea that this is a really, REALLY good album. I guess I can see why some people might criticize it and put forth the "AOR-by-numbers" argument. But whether or not this is true, whether or not it's an album full of cliches, whether or not it's groundbreaking simply doesn't seem to be an issue for the people w

Bands whose albums spent A LOT of time in my stereos - much more so than many of the more successful bands of the era... ...Q5, TKO, Heaven, Mamas Boys, Armored Saint, Lizzy Borden, Shy, Great White, Metal Church & Queensryche are among some of the other bands that I spent

Back in the '80s, I enjoyed all of the high profile bands of the day: Bon Jovi, Crue, Ratt, Quiet Riot, G 'n R, Van Halen, Def Leppard, Dio, Maiden, Priest, Scorpions, Whitesnake, Kiss, etc. But I was always on the lookout for something that wasn't huge, something that was new. And it was always bittersweet when bands that I "discovered" (LOL!!) went on to become huge. I was thrille

I have to admit, althought I'm not particularly fond of the term, I totally get it and, IMHO, it works. Back in the '90s, when the term was coined, many rock bands had stopped wearing "big" or even long hair. They stopped dressing like rock stars (ie., spandex, leather, tight pants, flamboyant shirts, spikes, scarves, etc.). Plain, dirty, worn street clothes became the norm. The who

I bought this from iTunes with the $50 card I got for $40 a while back (sorry to harp, but I still can't believe that iTunes cards would come on sale!!!). So far, I'd rank it as the best of the 5 albums I chose. On one hand, I've got to say that it's extremely AOR-by-numbers/safe/generic. On the other hand, I'm not always looking for something groundbreaking, new, fresh, &/or original. Mo

I always thought the lead singer from the s/t Worlds Apart CD I own sounded quite similar to Michael Stweet. Kind of a M.S./Louis St. August (Mass) hybrid, actually. Cheers, MooseMan NP - "There Was A Time" - Wrabit: "Tracks"
