Holy cow you are spot on with the GnR call. Interesting. I dig the song as it goes, prefer Metallica when they do straight ahead rock/metal.

Definitely of its time, I remember thinking it was just ok back in the day as they were reinventing what had become a somewhat tired wheel. But in saying that I actually preferred "Fist First" (2nd album?), I recall it having a bit more grunt.

Picked up my copy yesterday, and.... I've only listened to it twice and all I hear are bad facsimiles of just about every song they've ever done...except for "High Time", that sounds like a bad facsimile of Kid Rock. Don't get me wrong, I'm a fan of the 'Back, but this album is really boring on first impression. Preferred tracks so far are "Tidal Wave" and "Just

I can't say I've noticed. I saw them on the All The Right Reasons tour and I'm pretty sure they piped in Dimebag's solo for two reasons: 1) It was simply to honour the man (same reason for Billy's bit), and 2) Chad hadn't learned to play guitar by then. Wasn't until Dark Horse rolled around that Chad put some time into learning something other than power chords. Also don't forget that Ryan P

Yeah agree on their sound, it's super chunky. Think I've seen them four times, I recall banter but don't recall it bothering me. My wife's a massive fan and I'm pretty sure she'll want to go see them when they get here...next year I suppose it'll be. Hopefully they play Sydney Olympic Park again.

No idea, I've been posting since the Southcom days in the 90s but there's no chance it's as much as you folks.

Loving it. I'm definitely hearing callbacks to previous material in vibe, I feel like I've heard some "Chain Gang", "Piece Of Me" (some of the bass lines), "The Threat", and maybe some "Wasted Time" in the ballad. One thing that calls back everything past Skid Row are the solos, holy cow they are big, fat, signature Skid Row sounding solos. Boomshanka!

Apologies for another Skid Row thread but I didn't want to sideswipe the thread below about the 'tribute' discussion.... I've just finished Side A and I'll say this much, the singer's vocals are dead set perfect for this iteration of the band. I would never compare him to Sebastian but he nails some inflections on "Nowhere Fast" that one could mistake for Senor Bach. For sure. Wow

"Those Days" sounds like a clone of "Don't Ever Let It End". I'm a fan of the 'Back but this is just lazy. First impressions and all that but it's clone-y to me.

My Dad was a massive fan, this was the first consciously chosen present I ever bought him. Many many years later he was getting rid of his vinyl collection (and old school stereo) so I put my hand up to inherit the lot so I probably have this sitting on my shelf. Can't say I remember more than "Baker Street" but what a song, fantastic imagery and an amazing multi-instrument arrangem

Saved my 90s, still spin it regularly. The follow-up EP "Activator" teased more greatness but the apparent momentum stalled, such a shame.

Quality is ok I suppose, they seem like 90% complete tracks, it's easy to see why they were left off the album though. An early version of "Keeping Up With The Joneses" is probably the pick of the bunch. Turns out it's 17 tracks, not 20 as I previously mentioned, the 'extra' tracks are: Lincolns, Mercuries and Fords Been Shot Down Keeping Up With The Joneses Medicine Man Pop

I've got an original pressing of this on vinyl so I'll probably give this a miss. Definitely one of my fav all time albums though. Over the years I've cobbled together some bonus tracks and demos from the era to make (I think) 20+ tracks so there are definitely extras out there that would make a great CD/Digi package.

Yeah the only version I have it on is the one I was playing last night, it's a 30th Anniversary Edition I picked up from iTunes, comes with a live show as well which is pretty cool. I suggested in the OP it was a remaster but I don't hear any sonic improvements. As I said, I really need to pay more attention to my blind purchases <rolling eyes emoji>

Is that right? I have 40 Seasons (somewhere) but don't recall it being there. Maybe the Aussie version only had the Slave bonus track.

I can kind of empathise (maybe), I'm headed towards 50 next year, and over the last five-or-so years (maybe longer?) I find long term "loves" simply don't interest me anymore. I used to be head-over-heals for a ton of pro sport as an example, call it Aussie Rules, Boxing, Tennis, Football (EPL), PGA/WPGA Tour Golf, geez you could just about sit me down in front of anything sport-relate

Still waiting for their latest vinyl to arrive; anyway it's kinda-Friday so I thought I'd bust out some old school Skidders and lo and behold I have a remaster of their S/T that I can't say I've ever played (wtf?!), and I get to the end of it and there's a bonus track "Forever". How did this not make the original release??? Too "nice" I'm supposing. It's definitely more

I know they're somewhat divisive on this board but does anyone have a line in to confirm? Mate of mine's son whose a mere 8 years old reported a teaser on his socials (dunno which one). Turns out the little tucker gets fired up and rocks out to the 'Back. Say what you will but I dig it...AND I didn't see it coming but for this bit of news, can't believe I've heard it from someone a million yea

Dig the Treatment for sure. Their recent efforts have been a bit bland (for use of a better term) but I get the impression they're always great live.

Yep sounds good, I'll be pre-ordering this for sure. Hope we get a vinyl release.

Agreed Wardy, loads of System vibes, this single has an Extinction tinge as well. My Mega favs run thru the 90s, Extinction to Risk, and then I lost the love, but The System Has Failed brought me back for that one hot minute. I might actually push the boat out and pick this one up.

Not saying it's great but need I remind everyone of this golden melodic rock nugget? Still amuses me these guys got through their 'nod' to make a film clip lol https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EDuefYZ-Qpk

The Face I Love EP was definitely the original Daisies hitting their stride. I found the debut a bit generic and bland with Jon Stevens' vocals the definite highlight. The albums since then have all been strong, musically, but I'll always favour Corabi's vocals, I really can't get into Hughes' warble.

Yeah +1 for me on the Heart reference, very 80s-Heart-esque in both sound and cinematography, that clip's sure had some effort put in. Oh and the best part of the film clip is the credits, our sexy protagonists have names, that's gold!

What's the deal with Jelusick on vocals, is he a temporary fill-in for Hughes? I'm clearly out of the loop... Edit: Oh COVID, rightyo, should have guessed I suppose, but the Daisies are synonymous with member attrition.

Sounds like I'll be the only one to admit I enjoyed the Supernova album and concert, they were great live. Unfortunately Newstead had busted his shoulder by the time the concert came to town but it was still a great show. Tommy was an absolute beast on drums. Have never seen the talent show thingamajig this was all based on though, I've heard mixed reviews about it.

30. Stats
Depending on which source one reads, but they all average out... There have been ~10100 homicidal gun deaths this year in America, so far. That's 10100 gun fatalities in 186 days. This figure doesn't include suicides, if we include suicides the number more than doubles. That's an average of ~54 gun deaths per day. I'm struggling to see how it matters whether mass shootings are correctly
