Most disappointing album


Guest Berry

Recommended Posts

Which new release have you anticipated with excitement for months, only to find when it's released that it's complete shite? I remember nearly wetting myself while I looked forward to Skid Row's Subhuman Race, but I sold it after only a few listens because I was so disappointed. I've kept hold of Scorpions' Eye II Eye, but it rarely gets played apart from the excellent A Moment In A Million Years.

 

On the other side of the coin, I seem to be one of just a handful who actually like Def Leppard's Slang. Musical taste is a curious thing!

 

By the way, I'm running a sweepstake on how long it is before someone mentions Dokken. :D

T-Bone, please do me a favor and go and listen to your Motel California again. I love Ugly Kid Joe and Motel was a great album!, Listen to songs like "It's a Lie", "Would You Like To Be There", "Dialogue", "Shine", "Undertow" and "12 Cents ". It's a great album. You can't expect another Menace To Sobriety, which in my opinon is the best hard rock album ever.

I like Queensryche's Promised Land, but it took a while to grow on me. They lost me after that though.

 

The new Def Leppard is a good album, but it's not a good Def Leppard Album. It's more consistent and original than Euphoria, which tried a bit too hard to be Adrenalize part 2, but not quite what I was hoping for.

David, I listened to UKJ Motel California many times and I still don't like it. There doesn't seem to be any flow on the cd. It's like they abandoned their musicianship to try and be the next Rage Against The Machine. America's Least Wanted was great and they changed to a little edgier sound for the Menace to Sobriety cd, but it too was still very good. This was too much of a drastic change for me to give it any credit. Sorry :(

Diddo jason. Actually, I didn't like Push Comes To Shove that much either. Jackyls debut was the best.

I think Santers blew it big time with Guitar Alley. Following Racing Time with that crap was a huge mistake.

 

Anything Helix did after No Rest For The Wicked was kind of limp.

 

Twisted Sister after You Can't Stop Rock And Roll....no thanks.

 

I thought Frontiers, by Journey, sucked.

You didn't like the first half of Frontiers Steve.T? I don't care for the latter half. <_<

TIM,

Well I was actually speaking as an entire album. 4 or 5 good songs and then nothing but filler does not make a god album. I also think it is where the rot began with Journey....until they put it right by ejecting big bird.

 

Substitute Chain Reaction for Edge Of The Blade and you have 5 good songs one after another...then? Nothing.

    • This is what I was saying today - there's already been a handful in the last few months - didn't a handful of people get in a panic about the Cuban one? Was it Cuba? Who knows, who cares? The most blatantly obvious effect covid has had on people is that it's turned them into panic-stricken fucking morons. Is this how the rest of our lives look? We jump at every single shadow now that ever emerges from the dark? It's an absolutely pathetic way to "live."  Remember when a couple of years ago the world revolved around inspirational sayings like, "Don't let what can go wrong hold you back. Focus on what can go right." They used to word it a lot better than that, but the idea is the same. But the world's the opposite now. Flipped on it's head. A couple of cases of something we're all vaccinated against pop up somewhere and everyone spirals into a panic again? Even though the overwhelming odds are that this will be absolutely nothing again, first port of call is just full blown panic again? What a fucking world, ay.  And this is one of my greatest concerns about the whole stupid fucking thing. In NSW we are 95% vaccinated but every single case that is detected is treated as if we're in March 2020. Even with a 95% vaccination rate, how the virus is viewed and feared has not changed a single percent, in the government and media, since March 2020. And I think this is a problem. We're all vaccinated against it so why isn't it let go, like a flu or whatever else people are vaccinated against, so we can build some kind of resistance to it? Get this herd immunity thing under way? If we're not doing it now, what's the point of any of it? This is the preference, to live in stupid fear for the rest of our lives?  I don't know. I don't know anything about anything, but if we're all vaccinated and we just let the covid thing spread anywhere and everywhere, doesn't that just lessen the effect of any new strains and all this melodrama? But if we keep jumping at every single case like it's terminal cancer, how the fuck do we ever try to move on towards a life worth living?   
    • yep that's exactly what it says on the Web page. Probably takes them about a few hours of tinkering ... adding the odd name etc. not bad work for $7500 
    • It is funny and you are correct the woke police would not allow this behavior on TV or anywhere else any more. Of course who wouldn't want to lay hands on Kirstie Ally?  Those years weren't bad, but I am a bit older and these years are my favorite and equally as un PC.  
    • Well that was certainly a nice tune. Big fan of the production, that bass is rattling my fillings.
    • He has a soft spot for the cheesy promotional tracks.    
    • We didn't really get "cable" TV here until about the early 90's. I have great memories of SNL from that era. I've always followed it since then.  
    • Even if she did, I don't think I'd slide it in.
    • Does anybody remember when SNL was actually funny? I was in the 7th grade and I'd record it every week, Ive looked for a long time for many of the truly funny skits from this time, and now ive started to find some, bet they couldnt get away with this again.
