  1. Has nobody heard this album? Very raw glam/sleaze! Take a listen... https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/sleeping-in-omaha/id775195372?i=775195461
  2. Like this album. Although since they reformed after Hard Rain, they lost that 'instant' thing. None of their songs grab me on first listen but instead they slowly grow. This album is worth sticking with. Good production and sounds better with each listen!! Gotto laugh at Classic Rock's review… "Magnum have been at it so long now they are starting to resemble little bearded elves, as featured in Rodney Matthews superb covers"
  3. With Classic Rock Magazine calling Def Leppard's 'Slang' their 'grunge' album, it got me thinking about other bands they have down-tuned and jumped on the bandwagon. Albums I can remember Def Lep -'Slang' (really like it. More Zeppelin than grunge?) Warrant -Ultraphobic (some great tracks and a killer ballad on there) Kiss - 'Carnival of Souls' (never sure about this one!) White Lion -'Freak of Nature' (ok so not really WL but twisting their elements. Loved it!) Glenn Hughes -Addiction (contained some killer tunes. One of his best IMO) Should they have bothered? Can you add any? Opinions of the above?
  4. I like this song. Reminds me of the old 80's days. Rough production but the song stands up. And it's fun!!!
  5. I quite like. I am amazed the ep has the same big production sound as most other TT releases. This is obviously without Pepsi. Have they kept a producer or engineer from the past? Their unique sound is still in there!
  6. I'm in love with the opening track! It's a good song with a top notch production! i haven't heard drums that loud since Creatures of the Night by Kiss!
  7. I think they should have used the same method as they did on the debut! So far the tracks I am hearing are not as instant and sound far too much JSS than W.E.T. I hope I am wrong!
  8. So, to summarise, you loved them when they sucked and hated them when they actually became a good band? Cool. Different, but cool. Thats your way of looking at it. What was wrong with Bad Sneakers and a Pina Colada? There are some good fast paced, memorable songs on there. Honestly mate, this album, 'Thank you' and 'No regrets' are the reasons why I was probably about 5 years behind everyone else in actually liking the s/t disc. Like you, I actually followed this band from the start when the "nu-breed" craze hit around 2000. I thought these guys were pretty decent compared to their peers in the early stages, but then bands like SR-71, Marvelous 3, Cauterize and The Donots (for example), who were their peers at the time, were all making - in my opinion - classic CDs, and these guys were producing, comparatively, two bit pieces of shit. And this is where I lost interest in bands like this and Buckcherry, because they just didn't cut it. Then suddenly in 2005 everyone's raving about Hardcore Superstar and I'm all like, but that band suck. By that time I think they were the boy who cried wolf to me, and I'm not sure when I actually even gave the s/t album a fair go, as I was so down on the band. I think it wasn't until they released 'Dreamin' in a casket' that I took notice again and actually went back to the s/t disc and said yeah, these guys actually came good. And by then bands like Crashdiet and Crazy Lixx were their peers, and their change in style was no doubt the best thing they ever did. Makes a lot lot of sense. I saw Backyard Babies as their rivals. Many of my friends were into BB whilst I favoured Hardcore Superstar.

  10. Two of my current fav bands will be there.. The Morning After and Vega. Also Tesla, Dante Fox, Ten and loads more!!!
  11. I loved loved loved their Bad Sneakers and a Pina Colada album but every album after that lost something for me.
