Well, it'll be very interesting to hear what they do next as a full album, as half the band left.... (From wiki) - On July 6, 2009 it was announced, via the band's official website, that both Ryan Ross and Jon Walker had left the band due to musical differences. The two are currently in a new band, The Young Veins, and are finished with their first album Take a Vacation, and are trying to releas

Toto were almost always smooth, but The Seventh One is super slick and shiny. Not that that's a necessarily a bad thing, as I do still like this album quite a bit. However, I don't think there's another Toto album that sounds this perfect as far

"That's The Stuff" is out from Rock Candy now? How did I miss this. I thought it wasn't coming out 'till next year. Damn, gotta go order a copy now. Thanks for the head's up.

I'm a fan. I'd have to go with MELTDOWN as my favorite all around album by them, though.

Again, I just can't say enough good things about PLANETARY. Any of you who thought it sounded interesting, should definitely check it out. In 30 some odd years of reading comics, it's one of my favorites, ever. From the storytelling to the artwork, it was all exceptional. One of the things I really liked about it, too, was while the individual issue stories were usually a story unto themselves,

One word for ya...PLANETARY. This was a Wildstorm series that was written by Warren Ellis and drawn by John Cassaday. It started in 1999, but actually just finished it's much delayed ending run with issue # 27 last month. You should be able to get most of the series in Trade paperbacks. A well crafted tale that was an homage to the best of classic Sci-fi, horror, fiction, superheroes, pulp nov

Death Cab are a great band, but not one I'd usually talk about here. However, I'm not hearing the Rush comparison much at all. To be honest, I had a bit of a laugh over that one. But hey, as long as you guys are digging it, I'm not complaining.

ANOMALY is good. Better than I expected, but overall, still an average album. SONIC BOOM, on the other hand is exceptional. Not really a bad track on it. It exceeded what I was hoping from it, and then some. While I enjoy both albums, to me, there is hardly even a comparison.

"Sucker For A Pretty Face" was never previously issued on CD in the U.S., making it very hard to find here. Before now, you had to try and find an import copy of the original version, or the re-issue with the bonus tracks, and they were usually pretty pricey. In the past, I have tried, and been always been outbid on E-bay and the like trying to acquire a copy, so I was quite pleased to

I think you guys are nuts, too. Absolutely LOVE the new album. In fact, it's one of my top 5 albums of the whole past year. I'll admit, on the first couple of listens, I wasn't entirely sold, but BURN BURN BURN sure did grow on me. Oh, and the extra BURN, is because that's what the "Deluxe" edition with the two bonus tracks and bonus DVD is called. And btw, those two extra tracks are pr

Wow, Ken! I thought I had a lot of Leo stuff, but you put me to shame. That's one mighty impressive collection. I only ever saw (and had) First Strike on cassette, and even then, somehow managed to lose my copy. I've got many import and promo only CD's, and a few import vinyl items. Some autographed items, too.

I'll go along with that assessment, too. Don't particularly mind it as an album, just not a "Foreigner album". Johnny Edwards is good enough, but I prefer Kelly Hanson if I can't have Lou Gramm in the lead vocal slot.

That makes two of us. I don't think it's bad, necessarily, just a bit run of the mill...sounds like too many other similar bands... somewhat overrated...etc...etc. But if other folks dig it, more power to them.

One thing I will say, I like Kelly Hanson as a vocalist for Foreigner far more than the short lived (and practically forgotten) Johnny Edwards. Anyone remember "Unusual Heat"? (although that album did have some 'rocking' stuff) Terry - "Under The Gun", "White Lie", "All I Need To Know" - those were all fairly rocking. True, MR. MOONLIGHT did have it's sha

I agree with Mr. Watson. I've gotten some that sound just fine, and others which are a bit dodgy. They are definitely not on par with Rock Candy or even Wounded Bird, but they still sound better than the old records, though. And, as he said, if they're the only ones doing the re-issue...well. The two most recent ones I got were PRISM - "Small Change" and Walter Egan - "Wild Exhibit

I thought it was decent, but nothing too special. The band is tight, the sound is good, but I was hopping for some more rockers and hooks overall. Nothing really stood out to me as memorable as tunes off of "Mr. Moonlight" did. I'll have to see if more spins change my opinion. Still for $12, 2 CDs and a DVD, I'm not really complaining too much. Hell of a bargain, regardless.

Love, Love, Love NEH! Can't say enough great things about them. Shipping in the U.S., at least, is always fast. I ordered the Eric Martin Band "Sucker For A Pretty Face" re-issue (which technically isn't out till Nov. 10th, but they already had it for sale) late last Friday night, and even with the holiday here Monday, it arrived at my door on Tuesday. Can't really beat that.

My thoughts exactly. They're only taking back what Poison took from them. When I first heard "Nothing But A God Time" (way back in the day), my first thoughts were "well, there's an obvious KISS homage if I ever heard one".

Heard it on the radio today, and it is one of the best things I've yet to hear from the band. Sounds very U2-ish, which, is not surprising at all, considering who produced the new album - Flood and Steve Lillywhite - both of whom are known for their work with said band. Regardless, it makes me want to hear more of the album.

"Swept Away" in itself is a hugely underrated Hagar classic from this album. "Two Sides Of Love" is great, too - I still have the red vinyl 45 of it. I also still have a promotional bumper sticker, somewhere, that says "I can't drive 55, and neither can Sammy Hagar".

Wow. Problem is, with the Beatles having such an influence on just about everyone who came after them, there are soooooo many covers out there to chose from. Some of my faves, in no particular order, and off the top of my head.... "Daytripper" (plus "Magical Mystery Tour" and the previously mentioned Sgt. Pepper's CD) - Cheap Trick "Dear Prudence" - Enuff Z'Nuff &q

I'd say the latest is the BEST of the lot. Certainly their most successful. Almost a year after it's release, and it's four singles deep, and could keep going with more, too. They haven't even gotten to some of the albums best tracks yet. You don't see that kind of thing much in modern music anymore. Up until this past album, I always thought they were lacking something - or at least something t
