Wow this is a top blast from the past! One of my favourite Pakaderm bands with 2 extremely diverse albums, the first being a superb slab of melodic hard rock with countless fantastic anthems and the second more of a grunge tinged beauty with the awesome opener 'The River' that is one of my favourite tracks of all time and lots of other gems. Sounds cracking and what a fantastic surprise. Th

Super excited for this new album after a string of excellent rocking songs released so far that let Daughtry stretch his incredible voice with big guitars and drums again. Sounds fantastic!

Some cracking songs on the albums I picked up of his and an excellent voice with a co-write with Bryan Adams if memory serves me on one track and collaboration with Ritchie Sambora too. Worth listening to a few tracks on youtube and Spotify to check out his stuff. Very good modern well produced pop/rock.

Great sound and fresh new Heartland track. I felt they got a bit like Ten back in the day churning out albums every year and getting all a bit dull and samey but the Heartland debut and some other albums were superb. This sounds fresh and Chris Ousey is always a cracking vocalist. Hoping the Slamer touch of inspiration will help lift more songs above the mediocre to shine like this one. Ver

Absolutely agreed with all of the above. Up there with Richard Marx, Mark Free, Lou Gramm and others for me as a vocalist who can sing almost anything and make it sound 2 or 3 notches better to listen to than a good singer would. Superb vocalist and I own all of his solo albums and numerous albums he produced and/or co-wrote over the years with numerous bands like Petra and the Pakaderm label

One of the bst voices out there. An incredible talent with so many excellent solo albums, Mastedon stuff and a massive influence on production and songwriting for so many of my favourite Christian rock albums of the 80s/90s by Petra, Guardian, Fear Not, Mark Pogue, Halo and numerous others.

Awesome interview and banter from these guys and wow what a vocalist, very underexposed as you say with so few recordings unfortunately. That Alias debut CD is still up there for me as one of my all-time favourite albums and it was awesome to finally get the follow up with the B-sides and bonus tracks of there never released second album a few years ago via Andrew and his label. 2 incredible C

Great songwriter and I loved his first 2 solo albums with 'Devotion' being a superb album for my tastes in the classic melodic rock vein. Third album was good too with some melodic rock gems but poor and strange direction in solo releases since then. Very 'mellow' and really just plain dull and uninspiring to me sadly. Loved his songwriting with House of Lords on their new album and hoped he m

The 'Alive' cover and 2 singles released since are classic Daughtry rocking out over soaring guitars with frankly one of the best rock vocals in the business across the world. Super excited for a new album soon hopefully in this vein as the 3 new tracks are awesone. As others typed 'Leave this Town' is my favourite and one of my most loved albums of the last decade or so. Just awesome!

Probably Harry Hess & Pete Lesperance but as a wider producer for numerous varied albums and acts I'd possibly say Terry Thomas from his late 80s/early 90s output with severla classic albums of the genre. Desmond Child (certainly as a songwriter!). Mark Spiro as a songwriter and producer too is pretty incredible.

Wow! I cannot agree less personally. 2 of the finest classiest albums ever recorded in my opinion with genius songwriting vocals & musicianship at it's peak. 2 of the best AOR/melodic rock albums of all time imho.

Incredible band & as a Christian & melodic rock lover their run of albums from 'Freedom' to 'Highlands' in the late 80/early 90s was second only to John Schlitt lead Petra in that era. Blatant passionate Christian lyrics from both bands & superb anthems & art from 2 of the best bands in the genre.

Sounds good and always excited for Winger new albums. Classy melodic rock and 'Pull' is still in my top 10 albums of all time.

My favourite definitely was John Schlitt in Christian rock band Petra around 1986. I prefer 80s/90s Petra over the 70s/early 80s Petra big time. I enjoyed both Steve Augeri & love Arnel Pineda in Journey too with such a unique & epic act to follow & Kelly Hansen in Foreigner too.

Just pure class and if they keep going like this for another 10 years these guys could get up there with Harem Scarem for consistency and brilliance in my book. Superb album and band. Hope to see them live in the Uk again someday. Maybe 2022!??!

1. United 2. Mood Swings 3. Believe/Karma Cleansing 4. Human Nature 5. Weigh of the World So hard to leave the debut, Change the World latest album and Higher off that top 5 list for me and on another day I could swap 3, 4 and 5 around between the 3 listed and these other 3 albums of the might legends. Top 2 remains solid for me now though over these last 3 years and would only swap places

Yep me too it's still all about the physical CD product for me. Just ordered new Fireflight & latest Seventh Day Slumber Christian rock albums from the US & received the excellent Perfect Plan 2nd CD last week which I'm loving. Brilliant vocalist with a strong Jimi Jamison sound vibe on several tracks. Very strong melodic rock release & grant to hear new high calibrate bands like t

Dann Huff is up there for me as the greatest for the obvious Giant albums plus cowriting on the brilliant John Schlitt 'Shake' album & writing many of the best songs on several Christian rock albums by the likes of Legend, JAG & several others. Combined with Mark Spiro on the Giant debut & tracks on Spiro's first few solo CDs & whenever Dann Huff writes rock it tends to be awesome

A bit like asking me to choose my favourite kid out of a large band of babies this one. Big time fanboy of Harem Scarem all the way and not an album I don't like. For me the top 3 are Mood Swings, United and Human Nature or Weight of the World probably. The next ranked albums would include Believe (extended edition with B-sides and 'Surrender' cover), Change the World, HS debut. Love Hig

Belting melodic modern rock edged anthem. Very simple and sing-a-long-able if that's a word ;-)

Fantastic band and another great track. I have to say though that the vibe, songs standard, production and everything on Attention! Attention! is right up there with 'SOM' and 'Amiryllis' for my tastes. 3 absolutely immense albums!

Who Do You Think You Are? - Alias (B-side to 'More Than Words Can Say' single and then appeared on their loooooooooong delayed second album in the end - classic melodic rock track!). I also love the original hard rock 'Walk on the Water' b-side by Dare to the 'We Don't Need a Reason' single and 'All I Ever Wanted' by Winger is classic.

I'm a huge fan and love the new album in it's own right as an excellent new CD of top quality melodic rock, with an edge, oozzing quality in the sound, production, lyrics and enjoyment. As others have said above it's hard not to compare in some ways and for me it's not reaching the dizzy heights of 'United' (but that's probably my favourite album of the last 5 years by any band so a pretty hig

Kutless are brilliant for my tastes. Harder edged than Jeremy Camp but in a similar genre of your sort of Nickelback/Daughtry style music, with a few extra screams in their first couple of albums but very melodic alt rock. They have released lighter and more worship orientated albums in the last 5 years but did a cracking return to almost their original style with the excellent 'Surrender' CD

Love old House of Lords and loved the first 4 albums of the reboot with Frontiers but recent albums have been much more uninspired, though I enjoyed 'Saints of the Lost Souls' more than the previous 2 and it felt like it had a few more hooks and variety on it. A hopeful turn in the right direction for my tastes. Of the newer albums it's 'Cartesiam Dreams' album that's my favourite with loads o

I have every Jeremy Camp album so far up until the most recent one that I listened too and it just sounded so pop and 'meh' to me that I wouldn't want to pay for it. His last couple of albums have been more pop and worship music orientated but with 1 or 2 rockers and enough excellence for me to buy and enjoy (very similar trend to Daughtry's last 2 albums and overall feel - 3 or 4 excellent album

I really like 'This House is Not For Sale' and am a huge fan of 'Have a Nice Day' the best Bon Jovi album post 'Keep the Faith' in my opinion. This song does sound pretty bland though and more akin to some of the averageness of the previous album with 'Because we can' etc that had 3 or 4 tracks I liked but lots of very average nothing songs on it. A long way from their brilliant best but I'

I'm so boring and predictable, a signed up Harem Scarem fanboy who just adores the band. So...surprisingly...wait for it...I LOVE THIS TUNE!!! Sounds brilliant and a great edge to the song with the usual consistent top notch HS anthemic chorus. Brilliant and any year with a new album from these guys is normally a top 1-3 of my albums of the year by the end of it. BRING IT ON!!!
