I've always loved this album, too. Don't get all the negative reviews for it. I wouldn't say it's better than the last Whitesnake, but it's certainly as good as.

Gotta agree with most folks here - this album is absolutely great, and one of my all-time faves! And, as Andrew said, way ahead of it's time. Everything about it is awesome - songwriting, performance, production. Patrick Sugg's guitar work, in particular, just floored me. A shame they never made it bigger. They were actaully THE first band signed to the Interscope Records label. Hell, I'm going t

Sampled it, and it's about what I thought it would be. No thanks, guys. Pass this round.

I think Jet's problem was always a bit of an identity crisis - where they could never decide whether they wanted to be AC/DC or The Beatles. With this new album, it seems they've at least ditched most of The Beatles influence, but what they've replaced it with is even more indecision over what their sound should be. The Black Crowes - since they went indie, just decided that they no longer had

What's interesting, too, is that with this release they've requested to be moved out of the "Christian/Religious" sections of most music stores, and into just "Rock". They no longer want to be known as just a "Christian" band, and are hoping to broaden their fan-base to people who wouldn't normal buy their music, just because it was labeled as that before.

The only jewel case ones that were CD-R's were the very first batch available from Amazon.com. This was because they were manufacturing them in-house, and they had an exclusive early release of the album before it was officially in all stores. The ones that came directly from the band at the same time (a month before being released to stores) were 100% legit regular CD's. Also, because of so ma

Don't plan on picking this up. Yet. I, too, tend to prefer the more "rocking" Crowes, to the more pastoral/hippie side of the band. "Three Snakes" is probably my least favorite album by the band, and I thought "Warpaint" was only ok, so I don't think I'll be digging this one too much.

I'll third that! I've got the DVD-Audio version of that, too, and it is quite amazing. Some cool audio commentaries on the songs and making of the album with it, as well.

The Ratt EP is fairly rare, but I don't know how much so, exactly. I do know that it made it onto CD very briefly, and those pressing are even more rare. I, too, found that the versions of songs on this disc are superior to the ones on "Out Of The Cellar".

Ah, some of the downfalls to the vinyl format - warped and defects (skips and such) in the manufacturing, that aren't always visible to the naked eye. I've had more than my fair share of those, too.

The new CD is NOT a Best Buy exclusive, even though AFTERWARDS was a Target one. This one's being distributed by Roadrunner Records, so you should be able to find it everywhere. The album's actually called COLLECTIVE SOUL, but is being referred to as RABBIT, because of the cover photo, and the fact that the band already has another self-titled album. I've spun it a few times, and I'm digging i

I agree. Didn't do so much on first couple of listens, but now is one of my most spun albums of late. I find I like it much more than the debut solo album.

I wouldn't consider them "Power Pop" at all, but I do love the band. I've only had a chance to listen to the new album once now, and I'm not quite sure what I think about it yet. It's definitely more experimental like "Blue", and barring a song or two, nowhere near as radio friendly as any of their other albums. It may end up being a grower, but we'll have to see. Their debu

While I don't agree with all of what Phil is saying, I do understand his frustration. I love Kotzen, own pretty much all his albums, but hate the fact that he rarely ever plays in his native country. It sucks that I've never really had the opportunity to see him play live. Trust me, I understand the "business" aspect of booking a US tour and having it be successful (or not), but an e

Reading through the last bit of Andrew's front page article of new Rock Candy re-issues, seems the best bits were hiding at the very end... "Later In 2009/2010 - Our Team Of highly trained operatives are busy in the Rock Candy rock 'n roll laboratory working on the following titles for reissue later this year and early 2010… Autograph 'That's The Stuff' + Bonus Tracks, Heavens Edge 'S/T'

"Dog Problems" was good, but I still think their debut - "Interventions And Lullabies" is far superior. If you haven't heard or got that, you need to.

It was a grower for me. I thought it was a bit too mellow at first, and even though I wish there were some more "rocking" numbers, I'm absolutely loving it now. Phil - No kidding. I'm still really surprised that a full Loud Lion release hasn't come out yet. It's already been two or three years in the making. Lastly, for all those who have "Redhead", are you aware that there

Andy's only on a track or two, but I always find his contributions very obvious. They were on "Redhead" and 'L.E.O.", too. I just wish he would do a solo album of his own.

Yes, that Bleu. I've had it for about a month now, and have been giving it lot's of spins. I like that he chose to do his own version of "Go", a song he had previously co-written with, and for, Hanson. His versions absolutely slays that one, and is one of the better tracks on the new album. I'll also agree that "Boy Meets Girl" is another highlight on the album, too.

Having recently been giving all their albums a spin, I'd still say "No Name Face" - is their best album over anything they've put out. "Who We Are" is the best since that one, but the debut is a song for song solid album all the way through. Most bands don't make an album of that kind of quality until at least their third record - if they get that far at all. That they naile

Not to mention the shipping from Canada, too - and they're practically right next door. I've had times I was going to buy something, but the shipping was going to cost more than the actual item, itself.

Actually, he only wrote or co-wrote about half of his major hits - if you check the song writing credits. But I will still give him all due credit for his other talents. Tommy Denander's post puts things in a very good perspective. I think the basic problem with MJ, is that his personal life, and the often very bizarreness of it, started to eclipse all other aspects of his actual talent. Peopl

I agree. If anything, I'd say they're highly underrated. There are some extremely talent musicians in that band, that never really get their due for being such.

Terry K. - yes that Bleu album is very good. He's a very talented guy, who's been working with a lot of the current (and past) power pop elite. You're just discovering it now, though? That disc has been out for 7 years now. Still, glad you found and are enjoying it. You might like to know, Bleu just released a new album last week called "A Watched Pot". It's equally great, however, I'd

Just in case anyone's interested, I did some checking today, and the MSRP is actually $15.99, while the actual standard CD cost from distributors to retail outlets is $12.25. Amazon, matching Best Buy's pricing, now currently has the CD on sale for $7.99 as well. Even though up until yesterday, they were charging $13.99 for it. Which is also the same price they were selling it for at the same t
