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.

    • I think most people know my stance on these two. I love LA Guns and think Tracii is one of the best guitarists to come out of the hair metal scene, and while I like Stryper I have really gone off them due to Michaels compulsion to release new material every second Wednesday. I have not bought the last 2 or 3 Stryper albums, and a bunch of other stuff he is involved in because of this. Hell, didnt even pick the first Sunbomb album up til early this year and only then it was because I got it for £5 instead of the usual £13 to £15 that Frontiers CDs usually cost. That album did not impress me. Musically it was tight but Sweets vocals were pretty "meh", and sounds like they are gonna be even worse on this album. Have to agree to what has already been said, but I can barely even understand what he is singing. Now while I am fine with listening to foreign language songs, if a singers native tongue is English, I wanna be able to understand what he is singing. Fuck me, there are death metal bands out there easier to understand than this. If I didnt know the song title, I would think it was called I'm bating bulls yeah
    • That Sunbomb release was soo bad that I can't believe there's gonna be another one.
    • Computer generated Gene is now God of Thunder 
    • Sorry, but those vocals are not good at all...

Best, Carsten/CEO/President Good Time Music
    • It’s not a “you” problem; I could barely make out a word while listening to “Unbreakable” last night. A lyric video is definitely necessary when listening to MS these days. Still, even not having a clue what he was singing for the most part, this is better than pretty much everything off the first Shitbomb album. 
    • Enjoying this one, for defs their best release and they wear their influences firmly on their sleeves , mixing bands like Van Halen/Whitesnake/Treat/Pretty Maids/Magnum so whats not to like  
    • I didn't make the connection until a couple of days ago. This is the previous group of Tobias from Nestor.        
    • I miss the days when I could actually understand what Michael Sweet was singing.  Not sure if that's a "me" problem or a "Sweet" problem...
    • Lyric video for 'Unbreakable'.
