I think the '85 solo album is better than I'M ONLY FOOLING MYSELF, and that SUCKER FOR A PRETTY FACE is better than both. But by all means, you should get both of these albums.

While I completely agree that these two tracks should have been on FRONTIERS, and that it would have been an even better album for it, I have to ask where you got the idea that they were "rejected by the record label"? From what I read, these songs weren't rejected - they were specifically held back in a decision by the band's A&R man, and Journey, themselves. Since the songs we

I've always loved this album since the first time I heard it. "River Song" , "She Give Me", "Don't Lie To Me", "Slave", "Love Is Blind" - frankly, I don't see why this album would be looked upon badly.

Love Jude! One other favorite of mine you left off from "A View From 3rd Street" (even though the whole album is fantastic) is "Get Me Through The Night".

I would say that SUPERSTAR CAR WASH was their first truly "great" album. They've all been pretty good since, but on the first three, they were still trying to figure out who/what they wanted to be.

I have to agree with you rocknut, I'm a bit underwhelmed with the new release, too. Even Emerson Hart's solo album was more engaging than most of the music on the new album.

I believe you are a bit confused. The new AC/DC album is the soundtrack for Iron Man 2, not the first Iron Man movie. The new movie isn't out for another week (May 7th) yet. You obviously watched the first film, which does only have two songs in it. The sequel has more.

Actually, they had two EPs and and album out. But they're all great! The second EP is only available from the the record label's website... http://www.idolrecords.com/onesheets/index.php?ID=60 ...and was originally sold only at the band's tour dates back then. Looks like it may still be available for anyone who want's to try and get a copy. Here's the track listing... Limited Edition Tour E

I was a bit underwhelmed with the new Scorpions album. While the music sounds good, it's the the lyrical ideas that put me off a bit. Too many re-hashed phrases and such. But, since I got it super cheap, so I'm not that disappointed. Slash's album, I haven't really had much time to explore yet. But from my first impression, it was easily better than GNR's "Chinese Democracy". Haven't

Truly a tough call, but song for song, I'd have to go with NATIVE SONS. That said though, with WALK IN THE FIRE they did have their best song - EVER - in "Love Lies Dying".

I have to agree with that. Problem is, though, that there were at least three more competing versions of the song out around the same time, too. Robin Beck, Bonnie Tyler and even Molly Hatchet covered the song, as well.

Thought it was kinda average on first listen, and fairly typical for them. But after spinning it for a few days, it's really growing on me. I particularly like "Wrecking Ball", just because it's something a little different for them. Curious - how many others got the "Deluxe Edition" with the four bonus tracks? They're worth it, in case anyone who didn't was wondering.

I'm in the US, and being someone who was friends with someone who worked in radio at the time, I know both versions got radio play. The album version got played on the "Rock" (now "Classic Rock") stations, while the single mix was played at "Pop" (or CHR = Chart Hit Radio and Top 40) stations. Pretty much the way it's been for a long time, which was why the "8

Ok, here's your answer... "Here I Go Again ('87 Remix)" which is also sometimes sub listed as "USA Single Remix" or "Radio Version", depending on which album or single you have it on, is in fact the version the Dan Huff plays guitar on. Even though it says "Remix", it is more a re-record, as it features entirely different musicians than are on the album

R.I.P. Doug Fieger. I'll miss ya. The Knack were awesome - plain and simple! Even if they did have their fair share of missteps and trouble over the years, they always made great music. Anyone who's never seen it would do well to check out the 2004 documentary on the group, called "Getting The Knack". A great, and informative watch. Drummer Bruce Gary passed away in 2006, too, but wi

No track record?!? Did you live through the early 80's? Here's a small history of his track record - as a producer - and more around that time.... - Steinman is credited as producer of every track on Bonnie Tyler's 1983 album Faster Than the Speed of Night. Steinman also wrote two of the songs on the album: "Total Eclipse of the Heart" and "Faster Than the Speed of Night".

This got an official CD release? When? I've never seen it. I had to rip mine from my vinyl copy. Great album, though. "No Time To Lose" is my favorite.

One of my favorite bands. EVER. I love all their albums, even the spotty ones. However the standouts would be the first four - "Cheap Trick", "In Color", "Heaven Tonight" and "Dream Police".

All their albums were officially released on CD via RCA in the 80's. I've got them all, and bought them that way when they first came out. (I've got the Rock Candy reissues, too.)
