  1. yeah, that first track sounds excellent
  2. sad and surprising news, he never really got a lot of recognition but his resume speaks for itself, RIP Bob
  3. thanks for sharing, I'm not familiar with these guys at all, but sounds pretty good
  4. I think that might be worth starting a thread for, if there isn't one already. And you both picked albums worthy of consideration. I'd probably slide WOA and NFO down a bit, good albums, just personal preference. My top 5 debuts during that time frame would be Brother Firetribe The Magnificent One Desire First Signal W.E.T. But could just as easily have included one of the D2 guys projects as Marcello Vestry, Tokyo Motor Fist and The Defiants all put out great debuts.
  5. I'm not feeling the new track either, just falls flat for me unfortunately
  6. I really enjoyed this one, pretty much on par with the first album. I would have preferred they used one vocalist throughout, as the inconsistencies in that area can detract at times. But just a bit of nitpicking on my part.
  7. I think it's only natural to have a few comments that are somewhat critical of a follow up of a great release when it simply isn't as good. Sure the production is well done and musically I think they took a step forward with some of the arrangements. But for me it comes down to the fact that there are fewer standouts and more tracks I'll likely skip on future spins, when compared to the debut.
  8. The hooks aren't as instant as the debut. And I didn't care much for the track order as there were too many mellow songs bunched up in the second half of the album. But overall I think it's a solid release. My initial favorites are Shadowman and Rio. The only tune I'm not caring much for at the moment is the closer Only When I Breathe. Andrés' tone when he repeats the word "breathe" during the chorus gets a bit annoying for me.
  9. that sounded pretty good, stayed true to the original version for the most part, but with a little harder edge putting the guitars more to the forefront of the mix
  10. Heavy Bones Billionaires Boys Club Roadhouse Beau Nasty Saints & Sinners Cold Sweat Laos War Babies
  11. I would not have recognized that as being Bad Habit had I heard it on the radio, good tune, kind of reminds me musically of Pretty Maids at times, heavier riffs and a much different feel than what they've done before
  12. Sad news of Brian Howe's passing today (article from usatoday.com) https://www.usatoday.com/story/entertainment/music/2020/05/07/reports-brian-howe-bad-company-and-ted-nugent-singer-dies-66/3087653001/ Brian Howe, former lead singer of Bad Company, died Wednesday at his home in Florida. (Photo: Brooks Paschal) Brian Howe, lead singer of rock group Bad Company in the late '80s and '90s, has died. He was 66. The British musician died Wednesday after suffering from cardiac arrest at his Florida home Tuesday morning, according to Howe's publicist Francine Marseille. EMTs had a short conversation with Howe but were unable to revive him after. "It is with deep and profound sadness that we announce the untimely passing of a loving father, friend and musical icon," Paul Easton, his longtime friend and manager, said in a statement sent to USA TODAY. “Finding the appropriate words to express the pain in our hearts over losing my brother has been difficult." Howe's sister, Sadie, added. “Our family would like to thank you for your compassion and the outpouring of love we are receiving.” Howe rose to fame in 1984 as the lead vocalist of guitarist Ted Nugent's album "Penetrator," which spawned the hit "Tied Up in Love." Two years later, he replaced Paul Rodgers as the frontman of Bad Company, writing and singing on four albums including 1986's "Fame and Fortune," 1988's "Dangerous Age" and 1990's "Holy Water." He left the band after the release of 1992 album "Here Comes Trouble" and tour with Lynyrd Skynyrd, due to tension with bandmates Mick Ralphs and Simon Kirke.

"I quite simply, along with (producer) Terry Thomas, got tired of doing all the work and then get nothing but resentment for it from Mick and Simon." Howe went on to release three solo albums, the last being "Circus Bar" in 2010. He was on tour with musicians Paul Warren, Christopher Turnbow, Miguel Gonzales and Rick Brothers prior to the live music shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic, but was looking forward to returning to the stage, Marseille says. "I feel we are all put in this world for a reason” Howe's son, Michael, said in a statement. “The passion for music was my father’s, and I am so happy that his legacy will live on.”
  13. I thought that EndeverAfter album was a good one as well, first song from this new project doesn't do much for me though
