Best version of "There's Only One Way To Rock" that there ever was. Also the best version of "5150."

Indeed, and that's part of why it's maybe half a good album and worst of those big 3. 3-Lock and Standing Hampton are much much much superior. I pretty much dislike ALL his work from Marching To Mars onwards, except for the two Chickenfoot albums, which are at least OK. That's a lot of years now.

Not really possible for him. The really best songwriting from that golden era of Standing Hampton through VOA was more down to outside writers that producer Ted brought in. Sammy had a good voice and still has some of that. He was never a great writer. Got a big lucky with Van Halen in that he had some great material to write over, and it worked a little better. Still not even a spot on what

That's part of it. In cases of people who simply cannot sing anymore (Bon Jovi, Dokken, others) there is that obvious flaw. With others, it's lack of self-editing and poor sound quality really hurting the new albums (Iron Maiden and others). And lots and lots of people working with Kevin Shirley suffer from this. He gets good performances and a lot of fire so that part of his studio technique

Me, too, but I liked the mastering on this recent Miracle set, and at least three of the songs on CD-2 are really good - made my playlist. Found it on sale, too, so it was well worth it.

Not me. I think the earlier, zanier direction was often fun (Little Green Men) and the intense but melodic/prog instrumental stuff really fit. I like DT now, and I was excited about "Sex & Religion." It was truly terrible. Almost no good songs. I really only listen to "Rescue Me or Bury Me" now, and that one was good. As Vai went back toward Passion & Warfare stu

Agree. Bad production. Too soft for what works with Heart.

She would be capable of making a good rock album, I think. Lot of talent there. I would NOT consider "Open Arms" a rock song, but I'll bet she could do something kind of interesting with that - and likely not quite as sleepy as some of Steve's more recent material. I'm actually kind of curious about this.

Viva Santana gets in there for me and was a very early one. Only three cd's but what a set! Crossroads - Clapton was also a bit of a revelation. The second Yes box set (not YesYears) was also marvelous. And for the quality and artistic side of things, David Sylvain - Weatherbox.

Outrageously awesome. Very much enjoyed that. Wish he'd found some way to fit the coral sitar solo in there, but use of Nugent and Van Halen were fun surprises.

Agree. There are 3 or 4 really good ones, but a lot of it is "less than" the prior Dokken albums. (The really good ones like "Down In Flames" and "The Hunger" work for me. The more commercial cuts like "Mirror Mirror" just don't quite get there, and I agree that while he still has that smooth-sounding voice here, it's just not produced right. When it ca

I hope there's one more Dokken album. Although Don really can't sing anymore, that last reunion song they did (covering him with a lot of vocal harmonies) was really excellent. Would be happy to have more of something like that.

I felt like Fergie didn't do soul phrasing all that well, and that made the sound a little more rock but also a little stiff at times. Maybe didn't help that Jeff played a lot more "straight up" on that album where I tend to prefer the funkier rhythms he used on IV. When they first got Joe, I remember noticing that he wrote excellent verse melodies, but I didn't like his tone as much

I live "In the Room." Kind of dark and a bit unlike him, but with enough cool hooks to work for me.

Standing Hampton is his very best. Both as a singer but also as an album. I'd take it over Montrose or 5150.

Went through the whole thread. Some superb songs on a few of those albums. Don't feel that ANY of those are "classic" albums, though. Not even classics in the genre (maybe with possible exception of Vital Signs). "Midnight Madness." That is a classic album of the genre. "Frontiers" or "Escape." Giuffria's debut. "Pyromania." "Wil

To me, it's one of their worst. It's where I got off the train. But then the next one, Headless Children, might just be their best album.
