I'm not saying that Canada hasn't produced quality acts. Not at all. But the thing about Canadian bands is that, in the MHR scene, we've never really produced a blockbuster act. In other genres, we have: country - Shania Twain female alternative/pop - Alanis Morrisette + Avril Lavigne soft rock/diva - Celine Dion pop/alternative - Barenaked Ladies new rock - Nickelback + Default pop punk - S

2852. Re: Ps....
Glad I could help, Figge. Another one that popped into my head three seconds after hitting the POST button was this: Which two bands which went on to great success in the '80s did Kiss give a helping hand to back in the late '70s? (answer - Van Halen and Cheap Trick) ...and/or, related to that... In which Cheap Trick hit does the band give a nod to Kiss for the help they provided CT back in

...worth checking out is a little masterpiece by the name of "Take a Deep Breath" by Brighton Rock. Back in the early days of this board, I used to rave frequently about this album. I'll start out by issuing the typical warning about opinions and tastes varying, but IMHO, this is an album very much worth checking out (whether it be for the first time, or for the purposes of re-visit

Cool to hear/see these two bands discussed. I am a fan of both and each has some songs that I would classify in the "Truly Amazing" category. Back in the day I lived in a neighborhood where all they guys were always trying to outdo each other by trying to discover the next great album that we'd all dig and play at parties. (Man, those WERE, indeed, the days!!) The guy who bought and

When on earth is this going to be released via iTune?! I'm sure that I had heard it would be at some point. I am getting tired of waiting!!! Anyone have some insight they can share?! Cheers, MooseMan

I was pleasantly surprised by this album. I had all but written this band off years ago, but "Streets..." was light years better than I had expected. Some of what's on it ranks up there with stuff from their heyday. Overall, I'm sure my rating of it would be somewhere in the 80s out of 100. Having said all of that, I still definitely need to spend more time with it. I think I've on

...Frazzle. He's a character. He's unique. He's interesting to watch. He's good at surrounding himself with talent. He probably does have a good ear for writing vocal melodies. (I would imagine that he did contribute in that regard to many of his songs, by singing scat or whatever.) But without the musicians he's worked with, he never would have made it to where he is today. Cheers, Moos

Hmmm, I'm a little surprised, Rocknut. Like some of the other posters, I rate the s/t debut about as highly as I rate anything by Skid Row. Are you a Skid Row fan? It all comes down to different strokes, again, I guess. One man's classic is another man's beer coaster. Now, I wouldn't have been a surprised at your comments if we had been talking about Slik Toxik. That's one "classic&quo

I put it away and never really expected to play it again. A few years later, I did pull it out and play it. What a shock!!! The bottom line is that I have NO IDEA how/why I was disappointed.

Hi All, I took a break from listening to new music that I've been buying over the past few weeks and listened to an "oldie" instead. I think I had forgotten how much I used to enjoy Sven Gali's s/t debut. Great stuff, very much in a Skid Row vein. Any other fans? I never bought the follow-up, "In Wire," which was supposed to have incorporated some grunge elements, but don

I have to say that, perhaps more than any other band out there, Megadeth is an act I need to spend more time with. Maybe this summer... Cheers, MooseMan

I can't comment on the Cure, as the only album I have by them is their g/h compilation. As for Megadeth, they're sort of a hit and miss thing for me. Sometimes I'll listen to an album and go "wow, why don't I listen to this band more often?!" Other times, when I start a Megadeth CD, I'll stop it before it's done because I just get a desire to listen to something different. I guess w

It is one of my dreams to one day do some traveling in Europe and hopefully meet some of the friends I've made on the Board. I can say with confidence, though, that it won't be happening anytime too soon. Simply too many other expenses and family obligations. One day, though...

Hey Mats!!!! How is my favorite Swedish Meatball? Great, I hope! I am pretty negligent about checking my email in the summer. Sometimes a couple of weeks will go by without my checking. Plus, right now we're having wicked trouble with our internet. It's down as much as it's up. That's a small part of the reason why my visits to this board have been so sporadic.

When I first heard it, I was a pretty big fan. I still enjoy it from time to time, although I have to agree with Rocknut, I'm inclined to skip a few tracks. Axl's voice is something that began to wear thin on me. Not sure exactly why, but it did. Oddly, I'm the same with Rod Stewart. I give him props, 'cuz he's got a classic, instantly-recognizable rasp, and has made some amazing music over

Every time I pass by this thread I can't help but chuckle about this (accidental) new genre. There's hair metal, power metal, thrash metal, and now DONG METAL! Women would probably go for it. And perhaps Rob Halford... Cheers, MooseMan

The first "real" rock album I bought was Kiss Alive II. When I saw the cover shot of Gene's sweat-streaked face all covered in blood, I just had to own it. I listened to that album to death, and it started a life-long love of the band for not only myself, but two very close friends as well. We started picking up Kiss albums when we could, and they were always the gift of choice for b

I was just trying to point out that, as long as there are discussions about downloading, there are going to be different opinions. People will NEVER come to consensus.
