Glad you discovered the band. Absolutely love them, and Tattoo Rodeo, too. "Let Me Be The One" off of "Rode HArd..." in particular, is a killer, should have been a major hit ballad.

I want "Adrenalize", mainly just for a good remaster of the song "Tonight" - which, IMHO, is one of Lep's best ballads. Even though it was released as a single, it's been left off all the compilations that have been released so far. Plus, I've never heard the demo version, so I'm interested in that, too.

Use can also use Winamp to convert FLAC files to WAV, too. I've had to do this a few times in order to burn files to disc I've downloaded, as my disc burning program doesn't recognize FLAC.

Greta band! Chris Hayes has got to be one of the most underrated guitarist out there. Didn't care much for "Plan B" though.

Quite psyched about this, too! I love Charlie Sexton. However, any of you folks who haven't, should also check out any of Doyle Bramhall II's albums - "Doyle Bramhall II"('96), "Jellycream"('99) and "Welcome"(2001). Just be sure you don't confuse him with his father - Doyle Bramhall (no II after) - who is more blues, and not rock. The father, co-wrote several of

Actually, you are a bit incorrect about the THAT'S THE STUFF releases. On the original vinyl LP releases of the album on RCA records, the RED cover was the first issue, with "Six String Fever", and the BLUE cover was the second issue, with "We're An American Band" replacing it. I have both versions, and the RED cover is catalog # ALF1-7009, while the BLUE is ALF1-7009A (A =

I agree with Marc. I found most of the album rather dull. Not bad music, just not exciting.

Loved both Athenaeum and Collapsis, as well As Mike Garrigan's solo output. I agree, Mike, they were well ahead of their time. Just got my copy of the new Kano disc, and it's overall pretty good. Only one track that falls short, but I'm glad he's making music again.

I'll second quite a few things I saw on other folks lists, including yours Frazzle.... Hard-Fi, Mute Math, The Doves, Mark Kano, Kings Of Leon, Starsailor, Coldplay, Snow Patrol...etc. I'll also add...and most of these are from just last year... Longwave - "Secrets Are Sinister" - NYC band, and this is their current (and 4th) album. Can't really describe them. The Stills - "Oc

Well, Katy Perry did co-write about four of the songs on this album, so maybe that has something to do with why it sounds like her.

I completely agree about "Native Son". Easily my favorite track on the album. Kieth Scott's guitar work, as always, was just fantastic.

Cheap Trick is one of my favorite bands. EVER. If somebody doesn't like them, or get them, that's cool by me. There are plenty of other bands that other folks like/love that I don't get, either. We all have or own personal preferences and tastes. But I will, however, say this. For those who say they don't "rock hard enough", go and listen to their debut album. If you've "only hea

Actually, even Ron Venison is quoted (in the KISS bio "Behind The Mask") as saying... - "In hindsight, looking back I think I used a little bit too much synthesizer on the album, but I wanted to break new ground with the band. I went with what was happening on pop radio for some of the songs, and the synths added a bigness to it. But in retrospect, I would have mixed down the syn

No, I must say I've not heard the Avantasia yet. Will have to look into that one, though. Thanks for the heads up. As for me and giving music a fair shot...it varies. Sometimes I will like something immediately. Other times, it could be many listens before it hits me, or I warm to it. There are times when I've heard something one day and didn't care for it at all, but the next I did. It also dep

I can't agree about the Alice, either, Eric. I'm 43, too, and have been a loooooong time A.C. fan - and so far the only albums of his I really don't care for are "Pretties For You", "Dada" and "Dragontown". I will admit that I didn't dig "Along Came A Spider" very much on the first few listens. Compared to his prior two releases - "Dirty Diamonds a

I agree with Terry, you should check it out, Scott. The good news is that it can usually be found for pretty cheap used, as well.

I dug it. I wouldn't necessarily call it 'outstanding' among his legacy of work, but it was still a decent listen. The fact that I got it at all, says a lot coming from me.

Just shows how varied tastes can be, Terry, 'cause I'm with you on the new Leppard. While I could care less about the Shinedown album, I'd rather listen to "Sparkle Lounge" over it any day of the week. And for that matter AC/DC's "Black Ice", Journey's "Revelation" or a half dozen other albums I've seen listed here as 'disappointments'. I find them far more interest

I'm completely with you on Shinedown being generic, and not at all understanding all the love it's getting on this board. It's so by-the-numbers, cookie cutter, dime-a-dozen, heard it all before sounding modern rock. I can't believe so many people here love it so much. Listening to it twice was one more time than I needed to ever hear it again, for all the the interest that it generated in me.

Not really a band for this forum, but it would be... Kings Of Leon - Only By The Night More for this forum, though, it's pretty much an even tie (and listed alphabetically) between... AC/DC - Black Ice Alice Cooper - Along Came A Spider Def Leppard - Songs From The Sparkle Lounge Rick Springfield - Venus In Overdrive Whitesnake - Good To Be Bad None of which were truly spectacular throughout,

I'm with Watson on this one. Just went through a bit of a Shooting Star re-discovery this past summer, getting all their albums on CD, and I'd still say their finest hour is "Hang On For Your Life". "Silent Scream doesn't even rank in my Top 3 of their albums.

I have vinyl copies both the 'Red' and 'Blue' covers of "That's The Stuff" - the latter with the band's cover of "We're An American Band" added. I also have the original RCA version of the CD, which is also the "Red" cover, like the Spitfire release was. Since the Spitfire version wasn't a re-master, I never got around to ever picking up a copy. I see it still goes f

You're not crazy. According to IMDB, that would be... "Victor Tourjansky, uncredited as the man with the bottle who wonders whether he's drunk at seeing the Lotus Esprit drive out of the water. He played the same man in the following two movies: in Moonraker (1979) he is drinking in Venice when Bond drives his gondola out of the water, and in For Your Eyes Only (1981) he is a patron of the

Just wanted to say thanks to the folks at Rock Candy for another fine re-issue job of one of my favorite albums - Autograph's "Sign In Please". Got it last week, and it's been a pleasure rediscovering it. This album has long been in need of a good re-mastering, and as usual, another job well done lads! Lot's of cool info in the booklet I never knew before. Now, if you can just get
