Okay, I was originally just going to make this a 'Fave track off 'Saints and Sinners' but I decided to go the whole nine yards. 'Saints and sinners' is arguably one of the most immaculate melodic hard rock albums ever released. I cannot flaw it to any degree at all. A long time ago I bought this and Vain's 'Move on it' for $2 each and there is not a bad track on either and each still get regular play.

 

My favourite disc is obviously 'Saints and sinners', though I really like the Pheonix Down album too, and aside from probably beeing the tackiest album ever recorded, the debut is actually a very good disc:

1. Saints and Sinners

2. s/t

3. Phoenix Down

 

As for my fave track off 'Saints and sinners'... man has this done the rounds. It used to be 'Dance little sister', then 'Fighter'... but I really, really love every single track (all 10 went on my Ipod) and this one's been a fave for a while - 'it's only over for you'. Man I love that song.

 

As for the debut, I heard it on the weekend and enjoyed it a lot more than I recall. I always liked it, but the imagery and corniness really got to me. Now I just listened to the songs and I'd have to pick 'Too much for anyone to touch'... closely followed by 'Triple X', 'Women on the edge' and 'Tears of fire'.

"Fighter!" - what an anthem!! Just when you think the big gang vocals in the chorus can't go any higher, the key change kicks in!

 

 

 

Same here...Fighter for me!

I'm very skeptical to buy anything from this guy I saw the Rock Doll video and the song wasn't very good.

 

What do you guys think? Is it worth the purchase?

 

 

 

"Saints and Sinners" is killer IMO but I never heard all of the s/t cd.

I thought the same thing of the 'Rock Doll' song. I was expecting so much more after loving the 2nd album for all these years.

I'll give Saints and Sinners a shot, and go from there.

 

Thanks

 

Wise choice... I sort of thinking that no hard rock collection is complete without this CD. :)

 

(BTW, make sure you like Desmond Child's previous output before you buy. :D)

Who's the one that prefers the debut? A little curious, I am.

 

Surprised 'Rock doll' was so popular... especially with quite a few melodic gems on the debut.

"Saints & Sinners" easily for me. Fave track is: "Too Far Gone", then "Too Much" off the debut.

Is this the guy who used to play guitar for Alice Cooper, who looked like Rambo? (He even had a guitar that looked like a huge gun?) I used to see pictures of that guy in magazines and think "what a doofus!"

Yes that's him.

Indeed. He's as doofus-looking as 'Saints and Sinners' is magnificent.

I guess it adds further proof to the whole 'Don't judge a book by it's cover' phrase... because if I'd done that I'd have been as willing to buy this guy's albums as I am to buy Gwen Stefani's albums. :)

It is kind of impressive that he plays guitar without a pick.

"Saints and Sinners" is not only the best Kane Roberts album, it's one of the best melodic hard rock albums of all time. Easily one of my top ten favorite CDs. Perfect in every way. And I do mean perfect...every song is great. Sure, some are better than others, but any song, taken on its own, is simply fantastic.

 

My favorite song was, is, and I believe always shall be "Does Anybody Really Fall in Love Anymore."

 

As for the debut...well, I no longer own it, and it's been so long since I heard it that I don't really remember the songs, so I chose not to vote.

    • His music videos are always good: either very silly, or very sexy. So I've got this queued up on the PC. Looking forward to it. 
    • New single "The Animal" dropped today, not bad at all:    
    • I dig the new tune!  Honestly, might be my favorite yet from these guys. I like that this kind of gets away from the  Bon Jovi Country vibe they sometimes had on the debut.  For me, this has a fresh, big sound to it.   Will have the new one on my radar.
    • 3rd single... Love It   
    • New video for 'Dance'.    
    • Vandenberg - Sin Chicago - The Chicago Story (2 CD) Megadeth - So Far, So Good, So What? (Expanded) The Allman Betts Band - Down to the River Mike Oldfield - Five Miles Out (Remaster) Buckingham & McVie - S/T Michael Hutchence - S/T Roxy Music - Stranded (Remaster) Echo & the Bunnymen - Reverberation  Echo & the Bunnymen - Evergreen (Expanded)
    • After releasing two albums with AOR/Melodic Rock band Streets, ”1st” (1983) and ”Crimes In Mind” (1985), lead singer and keyboardist Steve Walsh returned to Kansas, to revive the band along with original members Phil Ehart (drums) and Rich Williams (Guitar). Furthermore, the lineup was completed by the addition of bassist Billy Greer (from Streets) and young, promising, former Dixie Dregs guitar man Steve Morse, who also contributed with composing skills and backing vocals. Eventually, the group’s ”Power” album was released in November of 1986, rather much to the vintage Kansas and Prog Rock purists dismissal, as I recall it. The heavier sound/direction and absence of violinist Robby Steinhardt, songwriter/keyboardist/guitarist Kerry Livgren and bassist Dave Hope were all contributing factors to the disapproval, it seems. However, mentioned ”Power” should perhaps instead be judged on its own merits, as it is what it is. Put out in a time when commercial Melodic Hardrock was very much in fashion, with FM rock radio and MTV as ever the important ingredients of daily life. In the end, the album actually landed at a respectable No. 35 on the Billboard chart, while the single/ballad ”All I Wanted” eventually rose to an even more impressive No. 19.

    • They have a real knack for writing (and producing!) songs that could be featured in '80s coming of age films and I mean that in the most complimentary way possible. Really putting the retro in retrowave
