Agreed, what a loss. WIM is a gem and Utopia Parkway too. Tinted Windows plays like a long lost Cars album, That Thing You Do, and on and on. What a talent he was. #fuckcovid19

I dig that, very VH but a little modern and great players. Sounds like something of Roxy Blue's debut, Rob The Cradle-ish. Again, love the VH vibe.

I like the single enough, production issues aside. It's a nice little Cheap Trick homage, not unlike some songs from their first 2 (including Heart On The Line co-written with Rick N). I'm always going to give HOL a chance, same as Hardline. But just like Gioeli, James has progressively moved further and further away from the sound that made me love the band in the first place. Still look

Official PR: VANDENBERG returns with a new lineup, and studio album titled "2020", which will be released on May 29 via Mascot Records / Mascot Label Group. Led by master guitarist Adrian Vandenberg, the Dutch foursome released three quality albums during the early to mid-'80s, namely, the self-titled 1982 debut (spawning the U.S. hit single "Burning Heart"), "Heading

Definitely more modern rock, but the chorus has a little Harem Scarem-esque quality to me. HS post-WOTW perhaps.

Strange history for this band, originally an Iron Maiden tribute band. Debut album came out 10 years ago on Roadrunner and then they seemed to have split up. Reformed in 2014 as Devil's Run and put out a couple of singles and then largely inactive the past few years. Anyway, seems like they're back again as Taking Dawn. New single is called The Way You Bleed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=

Hello all, It is with great disappointment that we have to announce some changes to our upcoming release schedule. Due to the coronavirus pandemic and the impact it has caused on multiple facets of our industry, including how physical retail is able to operate, this was a choice we were simply forced to make. We understand this is going to be upsetting to many of you, but we kindly ask for you

Early 80s output (Bebe, Private Audition, Passionworks) were not so great. Especially after Little Queen and D&B. I always thought the 85 S/T album was just okay, too poppy for me. Bad Animals was in the same vein. Brigade (I know, it's a 90s album) has always been a favorite of mine. A slightly better mix of pop and rock for me. I always felt tracks like Under The Sky foreshadowed som

Rumor is he will release a double album. One side rock and one side acoustic/mellow. Love Butch and thought Stay Gold was great. Looking forward to this one.

A few reasons, some you point out. But really, the songs. It's all subjective, but I don't think anything they released could be considered "excellent" or in the same league as Pyromania/Slippery. Every album has some moments and Miss Mystery definitely had them reaching for the top of the charts. But in the pre-Slippery era of 1985, it didn't hit. Maybe that song hits in 87 or 88, wh

While that's not great, at least Jimi's guitars are up in the mix and keys are pushed back a bit. I'm with everyone else on the production or lack thereof. Haven't liked much since Demons, WUD had some stuff. However, I will be interested in hearing more now that I know Mark Spiro had a hand in co-writing. We'll see.

It's ok, not as good as Mood Swings or Believe or Voice of Reason or United or the two Rubber albums or the debut or... It's fantastic. Full stop. No need for comparisons from me. It's great, love how they've taken all the good things from their past and expanded upon it. Hess and Lesperance are unrivaled in that respect.

Ugh, the vocals...one of the worst of the era. The debut was not very good - sleazy hard rock of the times. The single really is one of the only listenable tracks. The follow up, produced by Jimbo Barton (Little Angels, Steve Perry, Trixter, Rush, Bagalore Choir), had better songs but awful execution. And again, those vocals. Tough to get past.

Agreed, I've tried many times over the years and nothing ever really sticks. Mediocre at best.

Would love to hear a return to the sleazy hard rock of Sultans of Sin. Unfortunately, this is not it. Keyboard-heavy modern metal. Solid track, not for me, but solid. Good luck to them.

Tom Waits...belongs in the Dylan category. Stellar songwriting, but that voice. Some might say Axl and GNR. Definitely an acquired taste. Nickelback - Chad's voice is up there with the worst of them.

Agreed, Out of the Cellar and Invasion are fantastic. After that, it's pretty spotty for me until Detonator. I've actually come to like quite a few songs from Reach for the Sky, but at the time, I remember not liking anything much at all.

Each single has been a little worse than the one before it. I liked Under The Graveyard, but nothing else. I have almost zero expectations for this being a listenable album for me. Same feeling I've had on every album since No More Tears.

I agree with that...I think many albums in recent years from some bigger bands should have been EPs. Whitesnake - Flesh & Blood - Keep 5-6 songs, ditch the rest Sammy Hagar & The Circle - could have been a 3 song EP Steve Perry - Traces - 4 songs tops

It's a good power pop record. Has lots of Cars influence all over it. Good stuff. Also, very misleading and awful band name :)
