Which album is most over-rated hard rock release?

Megadeth - Rust In Peace. Other then Hanger 18 I thought that cd sucked balls.

 

What about "Holy Wars", "Take No Prisoners", "Tornado of Souls", "Five Magics" and "Rust in Peace"?

That's a classic Thrash Metal album, one of the best of all time IMO anyway.

Backed!! :beerbang:

Well I do like this album, but I can see what you mean. Whereas the focus on "Countdown..." was just pure great songs, here it was all about the showmanship. Friedman & Mustaine are on-fire on this thing & the speed of the playing is incredible, but it's all to the detriment of the songs IMO, which - though still good - often drag on aimlessly.

Victory....I've tried 'Don't Get Mad Get Even' 'Culture Killed The Native' 'Temples of Gold' and 'Instinct'... I find the band is okay but nothing great......IMO

:yikes:

:baneed:

 

In case everyone has forgotten!

2008 is the year of overrated c.d.'s:

GUNS & ROSES- CHINESE DEMOCRACY

AC/DC-BLACK ICE

 

 

I definitely agree with these two!

Heart put out some harder-edged stuff in their early years (Barracuda, Crazy On You, Magic Man, etc.). Then they released that watered-down crappola of Brigade. Mere words can't describe how much I fucking hate that trite, contrived All I Wanna Do bullshit. Plain and simple, they caved in to the label's demand that they rely on outside writers for "hit singles" to make the label a shitload of money. I don't know how many megabucks they got for selling their soul, but it cost them this fan anyway. I don't mind the odd ballad, but that turd of a song went beyond sappy into levels of sugar-coatedness I never thought they'd stoop to. They might as well have had Pebbles and Bam Bam sing those hackneyed, cliched lyrics. :puking::poop::rant::rtfm::soapbox::puke::explode:

Saga's 'Behaviour' and now Heart's 'Brigade' take a bashing. You need help, and quickly. :lol:

I think Culture and Temples are both great albums.

And 'Don't get mad get even'. All Victory's discs are treasures until 'Instinct'.

 

I actually didn't think it was humanly possible to not love 'Culture Killed The Native'. I didn't know "proper humans" were born with that capability.

 

Geoff...you're a hard rock god :drink: (I'm a big fan of german hard rock and Culture is one of top albums from there)

:lol: Thanks mate. Yeah, Victory are one of my all-time top 10-15 favourite bands and 'Culture' is my favourite disc from the... superb disc.

"All I Wanna Do" is Sheryl Crow and not Heart.

I shortened the title of the Heart song 'cause typing out the full title wastes time I'll never get back. I've never heard anything by Ms. Crow, but I'm sure I'd despise it just as much as the Heart garbage.

I love 'Brigade'.

 

In fact, it's the only Heart album I like... although 'Bad animals' is pretty cool too.

 

 

You won't like the stuff up to 1982 I dare say, but what about the other brilliant Heart discs like, 'Passionworks', 'Private Audition', the awesome S/T and Desire Walks On. All great discs one and all.

Never seen them around the place, to be honest. It's not that I've avoided them, it's just that from what I read I doubted I'd be into their early (and then recent) releases. If I come accross them I'll put them in my ears though. :)

I'll back that Jez. Saw them when i was a kid at 12 and many times since then. Great band during all periods IMO.

You must have heard the S/T from '85. It was the album before 'Bad Animals' and had the massive hits 'What About Love' and the fantastic 'These Dreams', aswell and 'If Looks Could Kill' and 'Never.

 

'Desire Walks On' had the brilliant 'Will You Be There In The Morning' and excellent 'Black On Black'.

Agreed on that mate. I first heard them around the 'Dog And Butterfly' era and immediately checked out all their stuff up to then. Have been a major fan ever since and I like pretty much all the era's equally aswell..

:lol: Maybe if I heard them, but not off the top of my head. I might 'Youtube' them sometime.

    • Nearly halfway through and I have some strong contenders now. My current top 5 in no order: Creye - III: Weightless  Crowne - Operation Phoenix  Arctic Rain - Unity The Defiants - Drive Grand Design - Rawk 
    • But how does it compare to H.e.a.t?
    • I really liked the first 3 POL albums, as did many people at the time,  but every subsequent one has got worse and worse, with this one being the most bland, predictable and boring of the lot. Admittedly, my tastes have moved on over the years since the first 3, but I still like and really good sugary sweet AOR album from time to time. Unfortunately this one isn't it i'm afraid.  
    • Their 2nd really good album. A melodic hard rock band doing it the right way... nothing new, no frills, just strong  songs throughout, well produced without overdoing it and just really well put together generally. One of Frontiers better bands amongst their roster of averageness
    • Boys From Heaven - The Descendant Scar Symmetry - The Singularity: Phase II - Xenotaph The Defiants - Drive  Stardust - Kingdom Of Illusion Pride Of Lions - Dream Higher Art Nation - Inception False Memories - Hybrid Ego System Jukebox Heroes - S/T Black Sabbath - Live Evil (40th Anniversary Box) A is A - The Complete Recordings John West - Days Of Destiny Chris Barr/ Don Cromwell - A Story Unfolds  
    • It's fantastic!   My initial favorites would be 19 Summertime, Go Big Or Go Home, Against The Grain, So Good and Love Don't Live Here Anymore.  But there's no bad songs here and I just dig the attention to detail these guys have in their songs. For me, this definitely reminds me much more of their debut than their second album style, theme & quality wise.  Listening to this reminds me of songs like Take Me Back, Last Kiss, Underneath The Stars, etc.  Very easily slots into my #1 spot so far this year.  We'll see if Midnite City can challenge it in a couple weeks.   
    • Always...but more reason to today   Got it on now...4 tracks in...excellent...but I won't dabble/spoil it for anyone...anyone interested should have it in a few hours as you said
