  1. All three of those samples sound great. My only critique is that all WOA songs sound pretty much the same... although I'm one of the first to bitch when a band I love changes direction with their sound, so I guess I should simply enjoy the ride with these guys. Truth be told, I like Lionville a bit better. Just a bit more flash from that crew... like endless guitar-fills and such. Obviously vocals are brilliant in both bands
  2. I love the concept, just not keen on the music.
  3. This is another one of those "You had to be there moments." Trying to explain just how important these rock magazines were to we teenagers at the time is next to impossible. Circus was my rock n' roll "Google" back then.
  4. I was a big-time Circus Magazine collector back in the day (1983 - 1987). I still have quite a few of them boxed-up at my place. Most are missing the centerfolds and other layouts, however, as band photos always graced the covers of my PeeChees during my high school years. I remember the racks at 7-Eleven and other local outlets stocked with the like of Circus, Creem, Hit Parader, Metal Edge, etc. during those years. This was at a time when there was no other outlet for music news (save for MTV). Those magazines were essential to me and my friends regarding new releases, tour dates, etc. Many awesome hours spent buried in those magazines during my youth.
  5. I've never been a fan of Owens (mostly because I don't particularly care for impersonators, and that's what he was in JP), but this new track is down-right good! Love me some KK and Sarzo, so I just might be in on this one.
  6. i hate the production. I hate the lyrics. Boring and mundane. Sounds like Gioeli is dressed-up in a condom outfit.
  7. That keyboard intro is AWESOME and sounds exactly like 1985 to my ears. As with most vocalists some 30+ years later, the highs aren't quite as high, and no matter how hard engineers / producers try, it's just not analog unless it IS analog. 80's slick and sultry production is what made so many of those bands sound so damn good back in the day. I like this one... 100% Must Have for me.
  8. ... and y'all who think Deep Breath bests YW&F are nuts!
  9. I dig that crunchy guitar riff. Vocals are a full step lower than they were 30 years ago, but that's to be expected. I wish this track was a bit more melodic and polished (ala "We Came To Rock"), but I readily admit I am stuck in 1986 almost every day of my life, so please accept my comment with that in mind.
  10. I was listening to Lionheart "Hot Tonight" before clicking on the link to "Countdown." Uhhh, a fairly radical juxtaposition to say the least. Sounds like a really pissed-off Kelly Clarkson singing with the band Bulldozer (The Day of Wrath) backing her up.
  11. Something about those 80's Canadian bands... I loved just about all of them.
  12. Not particularly fond of the lyrics... especially the second-tier glam-rock wannbe "Trust Fund Baby" scream. Sounds like a cheap imitation of something Big Bang Babies would have done in 1990 (I like Kelli a lot, my the way). Actually, the more I think of it, I'm reminded of a much less awesome alternate version of GNR's "Night Train." Anyway, I dig the artists quite a bit. Loved me some Sammy dating back to junior high, and of course Mikey from my grade school days. The music is good... it's just the cheesy lyrics from this first track that are like fingernails on a chalkboard to me. I'll certainly check-out the other tracks from the album, and I'm guessing this band puts on one helluva live show. Count me in for that if they come my way.
  13. Their debut album was so damn good, I still give it regular spins. I'm interested to hear what they have to offer.
