I was talking more vocally, although the 3 albums I am thinking about specifically are musically way superior too anything she has released, so we''ll have to beg to differ on that subject. As I said., I don't mind Issa's voice to a point, but she is pretty limited in what she does and is a bit of a one trick pony...and apart from the excellent 'Crossfire' album, I'd say her albums are pretty spotty too.

Stardom beckoned for Heavy Pettin’ back in the early 80’s with arena tours supporting Kiss, Ozzy and Mötley Crüe and along with the help of MTV, the band scored a couple of Stateside hits.
However, after two hit albums with ‘Lettin’ Loose’ in 1983 and two years later with ‘Rock Ain’t Dead’, they literally ended with a ‘Big Bang’ after a misguided attempt at the Eurovision Song Contest in ’87 resulting in the band breaking up with their third album released after their demise two years later.
News of their reunion came as a complete surprise when earlier last summer Steve ‘Hamie’ Hayman flew over from Texas where he now resides to exclusively announce to Mark Taylor of MetalTalk & TotalRockRadio that the band were reforming for a gig at WinterStorm and they did a triumphant return – with the prospect of further gigs across Europe/UK for 2018.

Haha. And let's not get ridiculous anyway. To each their own, entirely, but what are we talking about here? Are we saying that Lee Aaron's discography and Chrissy Steele's 'Magnet to steel' albums are better than Issa albums, such as the brilliant last one? Is that where we're at? Because if so, I entirely disagree. I'd take any Issa album (including this new one, yes) over the Chrissy Steele or Lee Aaron albums, for sure. I like a lot of them, but they are both really inconsistent artists and any one single Issa album has more really great songs on it than their discographies, lol... which in Steele's case, was just the one album wasn't it?
As for Darby Mills, I've not heard of her, so can't comment on that.
However... are we just talking vocally? Is that all you mean, Jez, that those ladies are better singers than Issa? Or are you actually taking songs and albums being better?
Vocals, yes I agree. Songs/albums, I definitely do not.
So apart from the monotonous commentary on how bad Issa's voice supposedly is, anyone have some commentary on the actual album? Anyone agree with my awesome point of view, that it's a considerate step back from the excellent last album?
