The Van Halen album has A-grade production and the first couple of tracks are epic but as a whole album It's left me a little cold. What I like about A Little Ain't Enough is that it's quite diverse and though it doesn't have the initial impact of VH's offering, I'm still tempted to revisit some of the lesser played tracks years later.

A very impressive album. Anything that still cuts the mustard over 30 years later has got to be a winner...

I love 'Africa' and I'd guess it is to Toto what 'Livin' On A Prayer' is to Bon Jovi. The band and more critical fans may be sick to death of it, but the mainstream public probably still want to hear it at every gig. I am that man. Van Halen with 'Jump', Whitesnake with 'Here I Go Again' etc etc. I'd want to hear 'em.

Surprisingly difficult, mostly due to production. 5150 & OU812 have great songs but the production sounds like they were produced on a Casio keyboard which really detracts. For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge has less great tracks overall but the production brings the sound out. Balance is a much darker album all-round but it still has some great songs and brilliant production.. A touch

It's all very subjective but even catering for that 'Hysteria' should at least be in the top 10. Personally, I'd rank 'Appetite For Destruction' above 'The Joshua Tree'

It's a strange one. With the bounce and tempo of the 6/8 rhythm it made me think of a summer version of The Darkness 'Christmas Time (Don't Let The Bells End)' :) Odd but not awful. Video isn't great though.

Not strictly true. Band members are all over 'Rev It Up' songwriting credits and Heart get the most praise for the albums written by external writers.

I think the slightly sad thing about Viv is that in the sense of Def Leppard getting on, it worked. However, for Viv who is a very technical guitarist in his own right, he ended up mostly in a rhythm guitarist role in the band, Phil's own ego has been allowed to explode so we have the oily bare-chested Phil strutting and widdling all over the live shows to excess. And, perhaps the most impo

I'm pleased for them still getting a degree of success but I've whizzed through the latest album 'Whoosh' and it seem to follow DP's trend for many years now.... Never really getting beyond about 2nd or 3rd gear. Yes the band may be much more contented with a harmonious group of old fellas rather than the days when Richie Blackmore was driving them around the bend, but I think they needed Rich

I do like to hear from someone who sounds a straight-shooter when they talk. Perry, doubless of his talent, but I'm not surprised he's not quite the 'angel' he likes the world to believe he is. The whole Journey circus can't be an easy monster to be involved with.

I'm not the biggest JSS fan when it comes to his own songs/lyrics but he certainly comes across as a musician's musician. A real fan of music and a pretty humble guy too. I still think to this day Journey were pretty cowardly in their way of handling Soto's departure. Lets hide our heads in the sand and he'll disappear.... JSS seems a decent fella..

(Hopefully) without repeating previous suggestions: Thunder - Shooting At The Sun (After lounging around and a retirement - a great return. Short lived though before Luke Morley went back to 'repeat formula'...roll the dice....'repeat formula'. Aerosmith - Permanent Vacation (Outside songwriters saving the floundering band)

Queensryche - DeGarmo (Yes, 'Here In The Now Frontier' is a tricky one but I don't think that album defines him or the band. ) Def Leppard - Steve Clark . Definitely lost riffs and a large dose of magic Heart - Howard Leese & External Songwriters (Controversial with regards to songwriters. But Heart's best output has mostly been written by people other than the Wilson sisters) Skid

Eddie Van Halen has been one of my biggest guitar influences and at many times Van Halen have been a mighty powerhouse of a band. However, there are also few bands that have made more of a dogs dinner of making and performing music (particularly in the last 20 years or so). The problem with Van Halen is Van Halen and as such we're likely to hear a bag of rumours, a few more comments from Sa

Certainly a JBJ solo track and a not particularly good one at that. Bon Jovi as a band, unless some serious changes occur, is a spent force.

Good stuff. I'm not the biggest 'Prog' fan so sometimes Neal Morse's stuff leaves me a touch indifferent but I kinda admire and respect that Neal does what Neal does and doesn't hide his beliefs (which I share) from his music. Love him or hate him, Neal is unapologetically Neal, and quite a talent.

Both are great and Jon Bon Jovi really hits a peak with his performances on 'Blaze Of Glory' but I'd say 'Stranger In This Town' is the most complete album. More songs which I'd go back and listen to again..

Well it's not offensive to my ears and it doesn't sound like a production-line song so though it's a bit 'dreamy' for my taste, it's not a bad song.
