    • 2 out of 5 and those 2 are in their correct slots. The other 3 are all in my Honorable Mentions list. Gettin' closer...
    • Oh yeah. Especially at these times - this is VERY controversial. Speak English or Die (the song), too is another one.  What a way to incite more hate to non English speaking immigrants in the States. But I just cannot just pass through Pre-Menstrual Princess Blues. With Mr. Tinkertrain, yeah but you know a lot of rock stars especially in the 70s who have done this. Ted Nugent, Steven Tyler, Jimmy Page and the list goes on - who have seduced under aged girls. Even have the lawful custody of them to join them on tour.
    • Hmmmm... I presume 2 correct are One Desire and Cats In Space because Crazysam has also named those and had 2 OK, while Harem Scarem and Threshold have been discarded by Geoff's list. The 3rd hit from Glen I guess is Pinnacle Point. Well, here is another list to continue the game, let's see how it goes: 5. Tokyo Motor Fist 4. Cats In Space 3. Crazy Lixx 2. Pinnacle Point 1. One Desire        
    • As far as i know this was never released which is a shame as it is one slice of killer AOR...  
    •   Threshold is in my honorable mention list. I love me some Threshold, but their material that was most melodic and most appealing was done during the Mac era. The current material is great, but doesn't resonate with me quite as much. Also, it's a very LONG album, and as with anything prog, there's only so much self-indulgence I can listen to before I tune out... and that hurts it just a bit. As far as your guess... 3 out of 5 correct, with 1 in the correct position. Of the 2 others, 1 is in my honorable mentions list. Getting close... NEXT!
    • 1. Once upon a time everything would have been physical CDs, either sent by the label, or the majority ones I purchased. I used to do circuits of Illinois monthly hitting pawn shops and new and used CD stores. That stopped about 12 years ago when (1) the price of gas shot through the roof, and (2) CD stores disappeared and the only thing you could really find in pawn shops are rap, hip-hop, country, and gospel. Rock and metal have evaporated, at least around here. I ended up spending $20-30 just in gas and sometimes I wouldn't come home with anything. Nowadays, the labels distribute everything digitally as downloads. The only time I get physical CDs is if they come directly from the band. Sadly, some of the labels REALLY compress the mp3s so you cannot truly gauge the quality of the product, which does the performers and producers a disservice. Sadly, we won't be going back to "the good old days"... that ship has sailed. 2. Luckily my day job frequently allows me to listen to music while I work. That's when the majority of listening and evaluation occurs over the course of a year. I also have a 128GB flash drive in my car that I keep updated with all the new releases each year as I get them. Any CDs I buy or receive in physical form I rip to high-quality mp3s and put on the drive. 3. As far as assessment, I use MusicBee as my music player at the office, which allows me to give an "album rating" from 0 to 5 stars in half-star increments, which allows me to at least roughly categorize the albums throughout the year. Top 5 contenders come from the 5-star ratings, with Honorable Mentions being the remaining 5-stars and the 4.5-star listings. In MusicBee, I can sort by rating within the year filter, so I can see all the 2017 5-star albums together, all the 4-stars, etc., which makes refining the selections a bit easier. -Dan
