  1. 1. Metallica 2. Iron Maiden - tough to pick just one as I was a big fan of the 80's output from several of those bands, especially Priest, Metal Church, and Savatage, but similar to my selection of Ratt in the other poll, Maiden was just so consistently good 3. Venom
  2. It will be hard to match the quality of that debut, but I look forward to getting more details and hearing some samples
  3. I recall a pair of 3-D glasses like that came with the original cassette and cd releases of L.A. Guns - "Hollywood Vampires"
  4. 1. Blackfoot - .38 Special had more radio hits, but I'll go with Rick Medlocke and the boys for their string of solid releases 2. Warlock - I'm a fan of Heart, but I've always preferred their 70's material 3. Journey - I really like several of those other choices, but when it comes to pure 80's AOR Journey was on another level 4. Stryper 5. Alice Cooper - similar to Glen, I was surprised by some omissions, but maybe they will be choices in Part 2 of the poll? 6. Ratt - this one was tough, those first two L.A. Guns albums were great, and I consider Appetite the ultimate
  5. I haven't read up on what transpired with the guys, but it appears there are two versions of Rough Cutt now(?) And they released versions of the same song ("Bed of Black Roses" aka "Black Rose"). This version features three members of the original line-up, Paul, Amir and Matt. They are releasing the new album "III" exclusively through the DDR Music Group. While the other version features Chris and Dave, also from the original line-up. https://heavyharmonies.ipbhost.com/topic/39216-rough-cutt-black-rose/?tab=comments#comment-798828 You wanted the real ROUGH CUTT
  6. I'm liking those tracks as well. They did a great job of capturing the 80's sound.
  7. It's been a good start to the year for new music. My picks are pretty similar to the rest of you. I'd probably put Ronnie Atkins, W.E.T. and Chez Kane at the top. But I enjoyed the new albums from Temple Balls, Wig Wam, Maverick and Creye as well.
  8. I agree with Dead Planet on the two releases I'd consider to be the best of those
  9. Both tracks sound pretty good. I enjoyed their last two releases. And I think the new album is supposed to be by the same lineup as The End of Chaos, so my hopes are high that they can keep the quality output going.
  10. Both tracks sound pretty good to me. Another album to add to my list to check out further.
  11. Yeah, the songs themselves aren't my cup of tea, but that is a great video.
  12. oh wow, that's surprising and sad news, best wishes to Erik, I hope his body continues to respond well throughout the course of the treatment
  13. Good band, I'd agree with Leykis, their albums are all pretty similar in style, solid, driving hard rock/metal. But everything seemed to come together for the guys on Killing With Style, from the songwriting to the production, it's my favorite release by them as well.
  14. sounding like this one will top their last album for me, thanks for sharing
  15. I agree, St. James sounds pretty good. The song isn't bad by any means but a little lackluster as a single to showcase a new era of the band. The chorus reminds me a little of something Paul Stanley might have recorded during the mid-80s.
  16. Sounds pretty good to me, thanks for sharing, I've not heard of them before. The write up does a pretty good job of describing their sound too. AC/DC with some southern rock swagger. And a little G & R influence noticeable during parts of the track "Sucker Punch", which is probably my favorite of those three songs.
  17. I think musically, that first track isn't too far off from Dokken's sound. One of George's best solos in awhile too. I do agree though the song as a whole isn't up to par with those classic albums. It lacks the melody and memorable chorus.
  18. I agree with the positive comments on this one. A great, 80's influenced female fronted melodic rock album.
  19. I'm curious to know what is different about the Biden administration's "plan" compared to that of the Trump administration with regards to distributing the vaccine? The only difference I've heard about was that the feds established some sites in which FEMA and the National Guard are managing directly and have provided aide and staffing to some community run locations to help reach those in underserved areas. But those sites still coordinate with the states and the doses still get allocated to the states first. The majority of vaccines are sent out by the federal government to the states who
  20. Nice, looking forward to this album
  21. yeah, I've read/heard of some pretty outrageous sale prices for hard to find indie releases, it is crazy, I'm a collector myself and prefer to have physical copies, early versions, in good condition and all that but I don't recall ever spending more than about $40 on a cd, if it's that rare and expensive I'm more than happy to have it on cd-r and print up artwork myself
  22. I'm sure that price is an error/glitch. I shop DDR's site at least once a month and I thought I've seen that title listed for 19.99 not long ago. So it would be interesting to hear from Shane to clarify things. That would be beyond crazy if it is the correct asking price, lol. As was mentioned, even if brand new/sealed condition I'd have to believe the original wouldn't go for much more than $50
  23. Glad to see the guys brought Jona back to produce. He seemed to help them take a step forward with their last album. And the new tune picks up where that one left off, I like it.
  24. Equality is a good thing, everyone should be treated the same and be allowed the same opportunities, regardless of their race, gender, religious beliefs, etc.. But equity and how it is defined, and by whom, can become a slippery slope. Nothing is wrong with the idea of fighting climate change. I'm all for keeping the environment clean and striving for improvements in renewable energy. But I also believe a balanced approach is important until we can truly evaluate the benefits of the various policies. Is it wise for a country with a large amount of debt to invest tons of money in pro
