    Guess Dan's top 5 of 2018!

    Yeah, well it's definitely not Heartwind or Hearts On Fire and I don't actually know any of the others, so I'll leave it to the experts.

    Saliva - 10 Lives

    Yeah, since 2012. I had no idea, lol. How much were concert tickets out of curiosity? I don't think I'd go to see them specifically as they don't have enough songs I like, but I'd defo look in if they were at a festival or something. You ever heard Amaru? They were great.

    Worst discs of 2018

    Yeah, I thought the same. Did you see some clown said Magic Dance and Care Of Night were no good too? Some real jesters in this thread.

    Saliva - 10 Lives

    Wow, I missed this one. I always kinda enjoy their releases so I'll check it out. I can't believe how little attention I've paid for the last 5 or so years, but I for one, never knew they had a new lead singer. And two, I never realised it was the lead singer of a band who released a great modern rock album a few years back. Anyone remember Amaru - 'Love, Lies & Tragedy?' I haven't heard it for a few years because it got trapped on an old Ipod that died, but just re-listening to a few tracks on that link, I think it was a pretty damn good modern rock album. Far better than Saliva. Another interesting piece of trivia being that Saliva actually released their own album called 'Love, Lies & Tragedy' only a few years ago. Though it has nothing in common at all with the Amaru album of the same name. Shame they didn't just record it, lol. Give it a proper release, as I think it was only ever a digital album.

    Worst discs of 2018

    lol, that last comment made me sad as we had so many same ones in the list. Hard to imagine from that from my list your favourites are in it too... but oh well, let's have a look and see. Just want to make it clear to people I thought the Ammunition album was terrible too... but then, I was one of the few who acknowledged how bad the debut was too, so it wasn't a disappointment or a surprise that the follow up was just as bad. But, again, in the year of single smash hits... I do love 'Miss Summertime.'

    Guess Dan's top 5 of 2018!

    Congrats, mate. It's obviously this one. ... If it's 7th Heaven, I am pleased with Dan's selection. Mighty, mighty fine album. If it's any of the others I'm not impressed.

    Worst discs of 2018

    I'd agree too, and that is basically what my list is. I didn't expect albums of the year from those guys, but Rick Springfield, Jaded Heart, Palace, Guild Of Ages, 30STM, 5SOS, Fifth Angel etc. have all been up with my favourite releases in previous years... so we're not talking chopped liver. I had a massive list of just shit... but these were the ones I found really disappointing. In terms of higher rated disappointments, I was very disappointed with Vega and White Widdow too... but they're not as bad as these. In fact, overall, Vega would be one of my biggest disappointments in 2018, to be honest. I rate those guys so high, and even aside from that terrible production job, it was a pretty average collection of songs by their standards.

    Sorry mate, meant to say earlier that first 50 guessers all get a free tongue bath from me.

    Inglorious - Ride To Nowhere

    Only good song on the entire album. Rest is very poor.

    Worst discs of 2018

    Always controversial threads... far more so than the reverse threads. Issa, Care of Night, Magic Dance have all been mentioned and I think all three and excellent albums. Heartwind, Hardcore Superstar and Grand Design were all okay albums, imo... certainly not anywhere near the bottom of the year. My list of prolific releases that were awful would look a bit like this; Rox Diamond ; totally agree with above - shocking album Rick Springfield - The Snake King ; what an absolute piece of shit. Massive fan of this dood, but this is dreadful. Lee Aaron - Diamond Baby Blues ; I quite like some of her stuff, but this was a really bad album. Terrible to see someone trying to be someone they're not rather than just doing their thing. Black Stone Cherry - Family Tree ; not too surprising as they only ever had one kind of okay album... but like Shinedown, they're back to their worst. Ten - Illuminati ; this one's been mentioned, but a once-great band are now officially unlistenable, more or less. Horrid. Panic! At the Disco - Pray For The Wicked ; not for most people here, but I don't mind these guys... kind of. This is just dreadful. Salems Lott - Mask of Morality ; these guys are really quite bad. Ugly stuff. Dare Force - Callin' Your Name ; no need for this to be released. Rubbish. Rso - Radio Free America ; foolishly, I actually hoped for a bit from this one but it's very poor. I don't understand what makes two rock guitarists think it's a good idea to release drivel that doesn't showcase what they do at all. Two Of A Kind - Rise ; after a ver nice debut, this was a massive step back - didn't like it at all. Enuff Z'Nuff - Diamond Boy ; please just stop. You Me At Six - VI ; very, very reliable modern roc band delivered their worst effort yet. Very sad, despite one excellent song. Daughtry - Cage To Rattle ; another one who just needs to stop... or find his balls again. One of the two. Roxanne - Radio Silence ; didn't expect the world from this, but it was an interesting concept to see them back. Thoroughly unenjoyable album for me, though, despite a few others getting joy from it. TNT - XIII ; I did actually like that 'We're gonna make it' song - very catchy. But the rest - generally terrible. Karo - Heavy Birthday III ; not really sure what this one was or when it was recorded... but it's awful. Breaking Benjamin - Ember ; their sound has always been pretty tired, but this was their worst in a long time. Bulletboys - From Out Of The Skies ; absolutely love the 'Best moment of my life' condescending rubbish song on this one... but the rest of the album is awful. Tommy Paris Band - Tommy Paris Band ; really, really should not have released this one. Very bad. 5 Seconds of Summer - Youngblood ; one of my recent favourite bands join the bandwagon in completely abandoning any rock roots they had. Like a few others in this list, there's one absolutely killer song on this ('Talk fast') but the rest is garbage. Smash Into Pieces - Evolver ; been a fan of this band in the past, but they've also strayed a bit and released a very poor collection of songs. Shinedown - Attention Attention ; again... they only ever released one okay album so it shouldn't shock me... but this is just loud, annoying noise to me. Airrace - Untold Stories ; disappointing collection from an otherwise decent band. Reece - Resilient Heart ; it didn't surprise me that this wasn't good, but one album I genuinely couldn't figure out why certain people thought it wasn't bad. Just can't figure this one out because to me it's Reece at his weakest, by-numbers. Fifth Angel - The Third Secret ; disappointing resurrection that shouldn't have happened. Not an awful album, but their discography didn't need it. Terra Nova - Raise Your Voice ; how does an album get released with a production job like this?? Why? Sounds like a shredded ballsack. In typical Terra Nova form, some songs are quite good and others are awful. But it's all just nullified by the terrible, terrible "production" job. Thirty Seconds to Mars - America ; sad to see what's happened to these guys. Another band that have more or less abandoned any rock sound. Again, like others, one killer song on this one very much in their older style... but the rest of the album is poor. Kenny Leckremo - Spectra ; don't really understand this one. Really didn't work for me at all. Reach - The Great Divine ; disappointing album after these guys offered some promise. This end of the list is getting better than the top half... but I was disappointed in these guys. Poor album. Dynazty - Firesign ; they seem like a lost cause now. Any hope of them returning to a sound/style where they played interesting songs seems to have passed now. I feel like the last 3 albums have just been one long, average song divided over three discs. Guild Of Ages - Rise ; great band with an exciting return... but my word is this a dud. Not a hook in sight on this one. So disappointing because of what they're capable of. Slash - Living The Dream ; I've hated a lot of his solo stuff but still expect something these days. This was his worst album in a few years. Fall Out Boy - Mania ; once-decent modern rock band getting worse and worse as time goes on. The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus - The Awakening ; another once-good modern rock band as above... going downhill fast. Tokyo Blade - Unbroken ; their last album was pretty cool but this was very disappointing. Palace - Binary Music ; massive fall from grace here. After a very promising debut this was a huge letdown. Jaded Heart - Devil's Gift ; these guys are gradually wandering well into Dynazty territory. Heavy is good. Shit songs, however, is not. And I should leave it there. Plenty more disappointments like Vega and co, but nowhere near the worse albums of the year.
  11. Thankfully, that would never ever have appealed to me whatsoever. Always all about the music, man.
  12. One of my favourite bands, but completely uninterested. Already got all the albums... Remastered by Harry Hess? Leave 'em alone, friend... leave them alone.

    Care Of Night - Love Equals War

    'Tis a great album. Pretty special couple of albums from these guys so far.

    Tesla - Shock

    I was far from a fan of 'Simplicity' too. I don't think there was a single keeper on it, was there, from a band with a catalogue full of keepers.
  15. Geoff

    Tesla - Shock

    Always nice to hear Tesla are still around and active. I feel similar to you about this. It has appeal... but it's not the best song I ever heard. But there's something there...
