Loved this band. Have the first two cds and played them nonstop back in the day. Will have to dig them out and give 'em a listen.

Hi all. Ranking the first ones at the top were easy. Tougher as I went along. Not a Bon Jovi fan, so those were easy to put at the bottom. Asia .... Asia Foreigner .... 4 AC/DC ... Back In Black Toto .... IV Def Leppard .... Pyromania Scorpions ... Love At First Sting Def Leppard ... Hysteria Van Halen ...1984 REO Speedwagon .... High Infidelity Heart .... Heart Whitesnake ... 1987

Hi Wardy, I almost didn't include the comment about John Brewster. But I recently watched a few Angels concert videos (loved their show with the symphony) and realized how essential his is to The Angels' sound. I wasn't a huge fan of Howling, Beyond Salvation and Red Back Fever, but loved Ten Minute Warning and Skin & Bone. Also like their most recent Talk The Talk. Back to lead gu

Rick Brewster of The Angels. And I could make a case for his brother John Brewster on rhythm guitar. Both essential to the band's sound.

Given the focus of this website/forum is melodic rock, and the original question asked about the most rocking albums from Kansas, I'm surprised Freaks Of Nature didn't get more mentions. To my ears, it and Power are easily Kansas' hardest rocking (and most melodic). As for REO, Nine Lives would be theirs with a callout to the live You Get What You Play For. I like the live versions of all the

Hi Terry, Be sure to post what you find out about the dvd and if it's region free. The new line up of the band is quite good from the clips I've seen on YouTube. Since I won't be able to likely see them in person, this would be the next best thing. Stuart

This one is easy for me ... Gerry Rafferty's Sleepwalking cd. Unsung classic. Edit: Just saw folks mention Boston's first record and Tull's Broadsword & The Beast ... love those choices, too.

Hi all, Longtime reader, rare poster. I just read all the posts in one sitting. Was amazed there was so much conversation about Survivor of all bands. That said, I always had a soft spot for the debut ... bought it when it came out and still like it. Also love Eye Of The Tiger, and was disappointed with Caught In The Game. Starts off great with the title track, then declines. Wasn't a fan

I also got into them with Thrak ... really like that one. I do like the current incarnation with Jakko J. Interesting takes on old songs. Makes me want to check out the lesser known recordings like Lizard, etc. Also enjoy spinning the "research and development" cds from The Projekcts. Very avant garde, but interesting listening. Stuart

Hi all. Longtime Steeleye Span listener. Came to their music via my love of Liam Genockley's drumming on Gerry Rafferty's Sleepwalking record (my fav of his). Really like the trio of records starting with Time, then Horkstow Grange and ending with Bedlam Born. All very different from each other but great in their own ways. Stuart

I agree with Hustler...two vastly different styles/approaches. I love both singers, but put on the Howe recordings (Fame & Fortune, Dangerous Age and Holy Water) these days before I listen to any of the Bad Company recordings with Rodgers. The same is true of Company of Strangers with Robert Hart. When I want to hear Rodgers, I turn to Free as I'm also a huge fan of the late great P

Me either. I never got into the "big" rock bands like Zeppelin, Stones or Who. Always gravitated toward the melodic bands slightly off the beaten path of true mainstream like UFO, Thin Lizzy, Rainbow, Triumph, etc.

Love love love Runrig. Great band. It's a pity they weren't more widely known. The Stamping Ground is prob my fav followed closely by Proterra.

These are all ones I bought back in the day, played a lot then and still listen to frequently now (except for the last one) UFO - No Place To Run / Remember riding my bike to mall to buy this with tips from grocery store job Gamma - 3 / Loved Gamma 2 as well but come back to this one more over the years Gerry Rafferty - Sleepwalking / Great songs, drumming stands out ... they were played

Love that recording. How does the remastered cd compare to the original cd?

I was also a huge MSG fan back in the day and was really bummed when Bonnet joined. I also wasn't a fan of Assault Attack and was excited when Barden rejoined. That said, Assault Attack has aged quite well over the years and is the MSG record I reach for these days. His voice was a perfect fit for the material.

I'll go with the first one that came to mind ... Til Deaf Do Us Part by Slade. Loved that one, but could never really get into any of the others. A song here and there maybe, but not a full album.

If you're from Louisiana (like me), the first LeRoux album is classic. Of all their albums, I play UP the most. Awesome record start to finish. Stuart

Great post. I've seen UFO twice ... Wild Willing tour with Chapman and Walk On Water tour with Schenker. Both were great shows. Though I'm a big MSG fan, I prefer the UFO albums with Champman.

My list has many of the usual suspects: Thin Lizzy/Live & Dangerous UFO / Strangers In The Night Cheap Trick / Budokan Deep Purple / Made In Japan MSG / Budokan But it also has a few not so usual: Atlanta Rhythm Section / Are You Ready UK / Live Crack The Sky / Alive & Kicking A** Rainbow / On Stage Baron Rojo / Vivo The Angels / Liveline

Hi Terry, What a coincidence ... I saw that tour, too. The Point Of Know Return tour was my first concert ever. Aug 5, 1978 in Baton Rouge, LA. LeRoux was the opening act. Kansas is playing in Mobile near the end of the 2018 tour...so tempted to go.

Hi Scott, I remember a band named Tokyo that was AOR/NWOBHM-ish sounding...is that the band you're referring to? I think they put out a song named Tokyo that I heard on a various artists record (it had a photo of a hammer breaking a mirror for the cover). If that's the one, do you have a link to the site that you bought the cd from that you can share? Thanks. Stuart

UP is a great record...in my top 5. Jeff Pollard and the band never sounded better. More melodic and rocked harder than Last Safe Place (the record that followed). Stuart

Hope you can find the rest of the set. The hunt is half the fun ... and sometimes the frustration ... of enjoying the cds. :-) Stuart

Back in the day, I wasn't blown away by Chinatown ... thought the lyrics were week (especially the Killing Of The Buffalo one). Always liked Renegade. In fact, the songs from it on Life Live are the best on that album to me. A few years ago, I revisted Chinatown and really liked it. Still listen to it and Renegade every so often. The DVD with Snowy (I think it's a Rockpalast concert) is wo

My father-in-law had Bells Palsy years ago. He bounced back fairly quickly ... so that will hopefully be the case for you as well. Will pray for a quick recovery. Stuart
