I know everyone has been patiently waiting for my opinion :nyanya: I'm only doing top ten because I get bored easy :) TONS of releases this year but thin on quality imo. Here it goes...

 

 

#10 Kid Rock - Rock N Roll Jesus

 

Strong outing by the wanna be rapper...as I've always said, he's at his best when he sticks to his roots and doesn't try to be slim shady....great southern hard rock album!

 

 

#9 Static Cycle - When We Meet Again

 

Excellent modern rock band that everyone pissed on when I introduced them. I came to the conclusion that everyone is deaf and called it a day. Go back and listen to the title track...I was blown away!

 

 

#8 Motley Crue - SOLA

 

Not what I expected to hear from the Crue but I still love it. I wanted to hear a continuation of the new tracks on Red White & Crue but they missed the mark a bit. Still, it's a MC studio album so who am I to complain :)

 

 

#7 Extreme - Saudades De Rock

 

 

I already know what most think of this album but I don't care. Fuckin amazing album and everyone on there played their ass off. I wouldn't expect anyone who didn't like them to begin with to start now but I was surprised how many fans didn't. Again, deaf....

 

 

#6 Saints of the Underground - Love the Sin, Hate the Sinner

 

 

This is a fantastic album that has Jani at his best. It's unfortunate we don't see this side of him more often. If he doesn't get help soon, this may be the last recording.....Love the song Signs of Life!

 

 

#5 Shinedown - Sound of Madness

 

 

By far the best modern rock album of the year! I don't want to hear about Nickelback or Hinder. Yes those albums are just good at best but this one is awesome! The title track is one of my faves but it's hard to choose. This will be the best album they make similar to Nickelbacks The Long Road. Nickelback is done the best they can already & the new cd isn't it.

 

#4 Tesla - Forever More

 

 

Tesla can do no wrong.....any other year this one is first. Saw the guys twice in 2008 and will be there again in a heartbeat. Unlike most bands from the 80's Tesla played a ton of songs off the new record instead of making it a greatest hits tour. I have a ton of respect for them just for doing that. If you didn't buy this album you have lost your mind. Buy the album before you go looking for it :)

 

 

#3 Big Cock - Motherload

 

 

Just picked up their best of Got Big Cock? This band is so awesome! Cocky hard rock with Mason on vox...doesn't get any better. The song Breakin My Balls is reason enough to buy this one but all of their albums are great. If you haven't heard them, make it a priority in 2009.

 

 

#2 Pop Evil - Lipstick on the Mirror

 

 

I don't care what Geoff or anybody else says, this band is destined for great things. Saw them live & they kicked ass! Great vox and catchy songs make this one of the best of 2008 easy. I remember quite a few people liking the band...I just don't understand still how Geoff doesn't like this cd. Amazing...

 

 

#1 Guns N Roses - Chinese Democracy

 

 

I for one am glad this is not the original members. Why? Because the people playing on the album are BETTER MUSICIANS...period! I have some news for old GNR fans...even if the album had been original members it would have been just like this one with subpar playing. This is and has always been Axl's show...this is the direction he has taken and I have to say I haven't stopped listening to it. Better, Street of Dreams, Sorry, there is no filler on this cd. Even If The World is awesome in a different kind of way. The best production of any album this year with lyrics that are better than any other GNR album including Appetite.

 

Could he have made a better record than this in nearly 15 years. The answer is simply no....

 

 

 

Have fun picking me apart, I look forward to it :popcorn:

Static Cycle & Pop Evil have threads on here and are more modern rock. They other two are classic rock with balls. If you aren't crazy about modern rock, you at least need to check out the Big Cock & SOTU albums! :banger:

Dissapointments (amongst others):

MILLION - Thrill of the chase ; just a very average album from a good band.

WHITESNAKE - Good to be bad ; I truly only really like that 'All I want' song.

SHANNON - World of desire ; Great debut, this is completely lacking in every department.

WHITE LION - Return of the pride ; pure shit.

DONOTS - Coma Chameleon ; very disappointing disc with no really good songs.

 

True attrocities:

 

MSG - In the midst of beauty

ASIA - Phoenix

SEVENDUST - Chapter VII - Hope and sorrow

MAN-RAZE - whatever they called that shit.

    • I saw today that there is some achestral AD/Dc show coming up with Ripper Owens singing and other more local dudes making up the band.
      Doesn't interest me much, but just posting for anyone who might be interested. Just use Google
    • Really looking forward to Dallas and Outloud. Scrolling down I get pretty excited to see new Butch Walker, then sad

    • This may not be available outside Europe but here's 'My Desire'. As stated before nothing overwhelming but decent.    
    • From blabbermouth.net: JEFF SCOTT SOTO's SOTO Band Releases New Single In Tribute To Late Bassist DAVID Z SOTO — the metallic hard rock group led by namesake vocalist Jeff Scott Soto (SONS OF APOLLO, W.E.T.) — has released a new single, "Detonate". The song features and was co-written by the group's late bassist, David "Dave Z" Zablidowsky, who was killed in a roadside accident while touring with ADRENALINE MOB exactly one year ago today. A lyric video for "Detonate" can be seen below. Said Jeff: "Today marks the one-year anniversary for probably the most horrible day of my life when SOTO bassist and one of my absolute brothers' life was taken from us so abruptly…David Z's passing not only shocked all of us close to him, but the rest of the world mourned with us as reality set in that we would never see this incredible human being again! "The biggest compliment and tribute I and the band can pay to him is dropping a new SOTOtrack which David co-wrote with our own Edu Cominato in the back lounge of our tour bus while we traipsed around Europe on tour last spring. His tracks on the demo were recorded so well we decided to lift his parts, finish the entire song around him and let you hear the final mark of his work that will also appear on the upcoming SOTO album we are currently writing. "The song is 'Detonate', which I wrote the lyrics about my own brother who was in a coma at that time… the words reflect someone in a lifeless shell/body still functioning enough to know they want to detonate, explode out of that body and come back to life. "With cooperation from the Z family, proceeds from the song once it is released for sale will all go to the David Z Foundation. Here are the details for those who would like to make their own contributions to this incredible person and cause. "We chose this day to honor our brother because we knew he would get all the recognition for it that he deserves. "Today we praise you, brother Dave. You are immensely missed, thought of every day and now immortalized in song with us!" SOTO was formed in 2014 when Jeff Scott Soto realized how much he missed the "heavier side" of his career after fronting artists like Yngwie Malmsteen, TALISMAN and JOURNEY, and even his own solo albums.

SOTO was formed in 2014 when Jeff Scott Soto realized how much he missed the "heavier side" of his career after fronting artists like Yngwie Malmsteen, TALISMAN and JOURNEY, and even his own solo albums. Zablidowsky — who also performed with groups including ZO2, TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA and JOAN JETT AND THE BLACKHEARTS — initially joined Soto's solo touring band in 2013 and appears on both SOTO albums released to date, "Inside The Vertigo"(2015) and "Divak" (2016). In July of 2017, Zablidowsky was touring the United States with ADRENALINE MOB — a group he had joined just months prior — when the band's tour RV, which had pulled off the freeway due to a flat tire, was struck by a tractor-trailer. The accident caused the deaths of both Zablidowsky, 38, and tour manager Jane Train, and resulted in serious injuries by band members Russell Allen, Mike Orlando and Jordan Cannata. Earlier this year, SOTO — which also includes Jorge Salan (guitar), Edu Cominato (drums) and BJ (keys/guitar) — announced the addition of new bassist Tony Dickinson (TSO), who is slated to appear on the group's third album, due in 2019. "It was the one and only natural choice for us after losing our brother David in the horrific accident last year," Soto said at the time. "[Tony] is phenomenally talented, and a great friend. He will fit right in with us, and I cannot wait for more of his contributions as we move the band forward!"      
    • Nothing special happened on July 17th. He posted this on FB: The album contains 12 songs and I have poured my heart and soul into it. I can’t express how much I want to share it with you. I will be releasing the album as soon as everything is ready. VERY CLOSE now. I will keep you updated over the next few days.
