I listened to it as well this morning. I also liked it, songs were good, vocals good to great. But the whole album seems to be very one paced. They need to give it a bit of texture, some slow and faster passages, acoustics atmospheric parts etc. It just comes across as being different themes on the same track.

If he's just a hired gun at this point, Neal has every right to tell him how to play the material. If I starting doing my job the way I thought it should be done, I'd be getting a sit down too. Now if it's a band situation, then that a different beast entirely.

It's a good/decent tune. I'm still looking for the level of energy and excitement I first had when I first heard Modern Day Cowboy though.

Loved "Too Late", that was exactly what I wanted from Asia at that time. Still crank it when I play that album.

I like it, it's not near one of his best, but far from the worst.

This seems to be one of those albums that I just don't get. I got it thinking I was missing out on something (because I heard so many people raving about it) but I just wasn't feeling it. Especially given the names involved. It's definitely (for me) one of those albums where the whole doesn't equal the sum of its parts. Would have loved to hear James Christian on it though. Would be cool to

I was really looking forward to hearing some new music from these guys. But now not so much. They need to get their shit together first!

I'm also a big Asia fan. And I'd have to go with the debut over Alpha. Songwise I think the debut has more distinct songs, they stand on their own better. Alpha feels to me like bigger produced album. The songs meld into each other more. The songs are still great but tend to be a little same-ish to me. I think because they're all a bit over produced (which I like) and bigger which makes the

Shows a lot about David Coverdale's character. Not many singers would do it that way, but I definitely applaud him for it. It's a way to still stay in the game for a bit longer as well as not letting the his fans down with sub-par vocals. Now if only Don Dokken could get the hint! He did bring in Mark Boals, but I don't believe he did any lead vocals, just background vocals.

Exactly, It reminds me of that country song that Tom Scholz put on the Boston album. Sung by his wife! Come On, this is a Boston album, what is a country tune doing on it? Did he really think that his fan base would want that? This is where a record companies input would have been beneficial!

I'd lower my expectations ;-) That rerecords album he did (a while back) really showed the limitations of his voice. There's no amount of studio trickery / backup singers that'll fix that. Now if he went along the lines of that acoustic based album he did I think that'd be the way to go for him. Lower range / laid back easier for him to sing. Not that I don't want a hard rock album from him,

That's good, I really liked that. Hope the whole album has that same energy.

That song was on the CD debut, it was a hidden song. On some copies it is listed on the track listing. It's a slow bluesy number.

That's hard for me to understand when you put so many years of your life, time and effort into one thing and then just shrug it off later in your life as something you're ashamed of. At one point he was really motivated to produce good music with Fastway. The least he could do is talk fondly about it instead of talking about it like it's a dark secret he doesn't want anyone to know about!

Haven't heard it or heard too much about it. But I remember it getting average reviews at the time it came out. Probably one to pick up cheap if you can.

Oh, I loved that album, I wish they'd do a new album as well. Not as good as Firehouse but still some damn good tunes.

Listened to a couple of their songs but they just didn't grab me. There's something about the vocals that just irritate me.

Yeah, I don't fault any artist for trying to make money any way they can. The market will tell if there are people that want the product or not. It's not always seemly though, the Kiss Kasket immediately comes to mind.

Yeah I can see that happening as well. We’re getting to the point where I can this happening with a lot of older bands. I can see Foreigner doing this with Mick Jones handing over the reins to Kelly Hansen as well.

I think that would be cool. Dino would bring a fresh spin to the Whitesnake name and I'm sure David would make out well with it too. It's just a matter of if the fans would accept that. I'd buy it if the songs are good. David I'm sure would still have a hand in the songwriting, production etc.

I loved that Millenium disc. If only Ralph Santolla were still around! Would love to hear a new Millenium disc. Oh Well.... RIP Ralph

Jorn really needs to get some songwriters behind him. He's missing that extra punch that some good songs will give him. As it is he's just another great singer (like Nathan James) with just mediocre material behind him. The covers albums he did was great because they were all great songs he was covering. Now if he could just do that with his own material!

There also that album that Jack did with Nick Bowcott of Grim Reaper. The band was called Barfly. Excellent album very much in the Baton Rouge tradition. Would love to see that album get released. It's in the can so to speak but crappy versions have been circulating for years.

I doubt most of these groups even meet. So I don't think egos would come into play at all. Probably one of the better points of one of these manufactured groups. Otherwise if egos were an issue you'd have a much higher chance of the band imploding and we'd never hear the end result. I am curious about how it'll sound. Nathan has a big ego but he does have a good voice. But his songs wer

I really like the album too and don’t hear why Blackmore hates it. There are some really good songs on the album. I agree that it’s not Perfect Strangers but it could have been a whole lot worse as a follow-up to PS.

I'd like to see the A=440 album with Thomas LaVerde and the Billy the Kid album. Both never made it to CD so it'd be cool if they got a reissue with bonus tracks.
