I'll spin it today. I owned a g/h compilation from the time we had our DJ service, but I'm afraid I never really played it either, with the exception of one or two of her big hits from time to time.

Fairly recently picked it up for a buck at a thrift store. Will have to spin it.

Cool to see the lists. Some personal observations... A few acts got more mentions than I would have expected: Pretty Maids, Night Ranger, Y&T... Not that the don't deserve it, but I didn't expect to see Toto on so many lists either. I think they were on more lists than Journey, Foreigner, Survivor, and Styx. Somehow I really didn't expect to see Kiss on so many lists. I'm not sur

I know exactly what you mean about recent years. Personally, I've enjoyed music from every decade from the earliest years of rock 'n roll, and I really I love the '70s and '80s (probably safely described as MHR's "classic years"). But the past decade or so has been like a breath of fresh air for MHR. I think most folks on here are quite familiar with my opinions and my love for s

Definitely melodic and rock, but somehow in my mind, they're in a different "category" than your typical, traditional MHR act. Maybe it's because they were labeled an "alternative" act during the '80s? I know it's silly, but around these parts, folks often place an "OT" before posting about non-traditional MHR acts. I would think that they'd qualify. I dunno, may

I tend to like 'em. I think everyone's definition of "ballad" might vary a little, but I'm simplifying and basically just thinking tracks with a slower tempo... A few of my favorites that come to mind include: Dare - Calm Before the Storm, Belief, etc. Signal - Loud & clear Khymera - The Greatest Wonder Lionville - II The Storm (both) David Zaffiro - The Other Side

As many of you know, I have a really hard time with lists - mine often go over the maximum allowed. However, in this case, I am locked in and have been for quite a while now. The first three could be a little interchangeable, based on my moods, but these are definitely the top 5.... Journey Kiss Judas Priest Rush Harem Scarem

I found it to be a rather amusing read. I was really impressed with some of the stuff he included, and although my own personal list would probably look quite different (I'm sure everyone is thinking the same thing), I also have a feeling that there would be a lot of similarities.

Can't believe that I forgot Metal Church. Everyone has their favorites with this band (I believe "The Dark" is held in high regard). Personally, I like all of their stuff, but the s/t debut has always been my favorite - ever since I first heard this track... Gods of Wrath

I'd also recommend Annihilator's "Alice in Hell" and "Set the World on Fire," especially if you like your music on the melodic end of things. I'm also really partial to Anthrax's debut, "Fistfull of Metal."

I agree - I love those three tracks. I also love Break it Up - always figured that track should have made the best-of compilation.

No, Tony, definitely not a fan. And, to be honest, I was shocked to hear he was from BC. Pretty much the only time I ever heard of him was when MuchMusic was playing that video. Given the fact that they were based somewhere in eastern Canada, I assumed he was probably from Quebec or Ontario. I have never once seen a flyer or heard of any reference to Thor playing any club or hall in BC, unl

I used to watch the MuchMusic Power Hour almost religiously. One day, while a buddy and I were watching, Thor's "Keep the Dogs Away" video came on. To put it mildly, we were horrified, although I remember my friend laughing uncontrollably. After that, we would actually turn the sound down whenever they played that video. I am ashamed to say that he's not only Canadian, but from my

Thanks so much for sharing this (the songs and the info), Peter. May I ask where you came across the info? Are the other 5 songs available as well? Are they all on YouTube? Thanks again, I'm a huge fan of Orr.

I know it's been discussed on here a few times, but I've gotta say that it's now official - Change the World has grown on me a lot! Not sure if it comes down to the sheer number of spins I've given it, but it went from being solid-but-nothing-particularly-special to a worthy follow-up to United. Anyone else feeling the same?

Agree with Mr. Nut, as is often the case. Like you, I'd say that I lean towards the melodic side of most bands, and I must say that the one track that made me go from liking this band to wanting to hear a lot more by them was A Tout le Monde. Of course, the timing was relevant as well, as I discovered this track around the same time my father was dying of cancer. A Tout le Monde

To be completely honest, my favorite thrash vocals would have to be John Bush (fantastic talent) and Neil Turbin. Neil's vocals always brought to mind for me what Paul Stanley would have sounded like if he were to try his hand at singing for a thrash band.

Thanks for sharing this, Peter. I've never heart it, but sure wish I could get my hands on it...even digital format (iTunes?). At first, I thought it might be Vancouver-based Simon Kaos, whose singer, Darcy Deutsch went on to front Prism after Ron Tabak's death. Absolutely killer MHR band, and a live force to be reckoned with. They used to print "Simon Says...Rock 'n Roll" all o

Thanks for the heads-up, Andrew. If it's got that dance/programmed pop sound, I probably won't wind up being a big fan. Still, I'll give it a spin or two.
