  1. Donnie's vocals take me right back to 1989 - 1992. None of these songs are jaw-dropping, but they're certainly not new-Roxy-Blue-terrible.
  2. Speaking of John Parr... Does anyone know where to find the alternate version of ST. ELMO'S FIRE? I heard it a couple years back on Sirius and it sounded like the studio version, but with dubbed-in audience "cheering" effects (to resemble a live recording). I cannot seem to find that version anywhere. Help and thanks!

    Where's Greg?
  4. AWESOME. The first ten seconds alone is like a time machine back to 1980.
  5. I've said it before and I'll say it again: The first two albums, I'd put them up-against just about any others from the 1988 - 1989 time period. So damn good, yet so underappreciated. Had their first two been released in 1985 - 1987 they would have been HUGE.
  6. I recently read an interview with Rob Lowe (of all people) and he stated "Claiming not to be vain is actually the most vain thing anyone can say." Same premise here in my opinion... Don't try and pretend you weren't part of the 80's "Hair Metal" scene when you clearly were. Embrace it... it was fantastic!
  7. I hate to be a downer, but for me this one would sound so much better with Poley on vox , Timmons on guitars and Lance Quinn on the control-board.
  8. Good Lord, this has just gone on WAY too long. Please, Frankie, don't make me burn my Metal Health album.
  9. The new one sounds like Chip Z'nuff covering an early 90's grunge band's ballad attempt. Fucking dark, depressing and as shitty as everything that ever came out of Seattle during that time.
  10. Not familiar with this band. Checked-out an older track (This Time) on youtube and it has a very cool / early Alcatraz vibe. Vocals definitely have a Graham Bonnet feel (that particular track, anyway).
  11. Finally. someone else gets it.
  12. Well I agree with your post all three times, Geoff. This is not Roxy Blue at all.
  13. That's, well, NOT the Roxy Blue I remember from back in the day. I suppose some things are better left in the past. "Too Hot To Handle" this new track is not.
  14. It's pleasant enough sounding, but you cannot capture the true sound of the 80's in 2019 (or 2012, or whenever they recorded these tracks). Most of us here actually were around in the 80's to remember the culture, style, fashion, vibe, aura, etc. Those of you who were not... sorry, it's impossible to fully explain; akin to trying to describe color to someone who is blind. I graduated from high school in 1986, so I am this band's target audience. I appreciate their effort, but their time "studying" at school would have been better spent watching FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMONT HIGH on repeat (preferably on Betamax). That movie does a damn good job of describing color to the blind.
  15. I prefer TMF. Nothing against Laine... I liked that solo album from back in the day quite a bit. But I absolutely LOVED me some D2 back in the day. Wore the debut "cassette" completely out and had to buy a replacement on CD in the early 90's. One of the greatest melodic rock debut recordings of all time. Had it been released in 1987 instead of 1989, more people than just those of us on this site (and those who remember NN from MTV) would still be fans. BRILLIANT.
  16. Love it. Can't wait for the new CD to arrive.
  17. Loved the debut... Looking forward to the sophomore effort!
  18. Wow. Terribly sad. What a brave individual he seems to be. Not sure I could write so poignantly if I were in his shoes. I was a big fan of SHY back in the day... I think EXCESS ALL AREAS will be played in-full at my house this evening. God bless Tony Mills and his wife... I sincerely hope his remaining days are filled with as much joy and as little pain as possible.
  19. Loved the first two albums. I need to check this one out!
  20. Beavis & Butthead didn't just bring "Unprovoked ridicule" to the band, they literally DESTROYED Winger in the USA. Like hitting a brick wall at 100MPH type of destruction.
  21. Question for those of you in-the-know: When was DALTON - THE RACE IS ON first released on CD? Was there an actual 1987 release, or is the 1994 pressing the first? If 1987, does anyone have a photo of the disc they can post so I know for certain what to look for? I'm a first pressing nut and I REALLY need an original pressing in like new condition of this one. I often have more dollars than sense, so if someone has one they're willing to part with........... Thanks!
  22. 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
