What CDs did you buy this week?

Recommended Posts

Hey Captain.........in your opinion.....are the rest of Bang Tango's releases good? I LOOOOOVE "Dancin' On Coals"!!! But that's the only one I've got.....

Dancin on coals is easily my favourite album by Bang Tango,but the others are cool as well.

There is an album out their called "Greatest tricks" which is all re-recorded songs from their previous albums,but it should give a great indication of their other songs.

Personally though,I'd say Beautiful Creatures is the best thing Joe LeSte has ever done!

Well, let's see. I haven't been here for awhile. Last week, I bought :

Over 60 Minutes with Helix and

Triumph - Thunder Seven.

 

I ordered both of these at the local CD store. Both of these bands toured together in 1984.

 

This week, I'm going to hunt down some Y & T here in Vancouver and I'll take the ferry over to Victoria and see what's on the island. I'll let you guys know if I found anything interesting.

 

Right now, I WANT Romeo's Daughter - Delectable and

Alexa - 1988 s/t. I found one over at musicstack.com and some lady wants US$350 for it. I said yeah, who's gonna shell out that kinda money?

 

I agree completely with what some of you guys said about teenagers today. Heavy Metal, hard rock, and AOR beats the hell out of rap and hip-hop any day. Even stuff like Limp Bizkit and Kid Rock. Kids these days are ignorant to their own roots of rock as someone in here once said. CHEERS! :drink:

I didnt think Delectable was that hard to find,or maybe thats just over here in the UK!

Must admit I prefer it to the debut album,some absolutely fantastic tunes on it!

Wonder what Leigh Matty is doing these days?

YES, a Leigh Matty fan! I am trying so hard to find the Romeo's Daughter CD - Delectable. It's impossible to find a Romeo's Daughter CD anywhere here in Vancouver. Virgin Megastore told me 'Delectable' is OOP. A few weeks ago, I bought Shotgun Messiah - Second Coming on Amazon.com. The feedback in here said it was a great CD. At the same time, I bought Lita Ford - Dangerous Curves and I love the CD.

 

AND, it's all because of this website. Thanks again, Dan! :drink:

I got the new Tesla album Into The Now yesterday. I have to say that although i like it, i don't love it yet. It's alot heavier and not as accessible as their earlier albums. Having said that, it's still great to hear another classic band creating good music again.

Today, I bought Y & T "best of '81 to '85" at Virgin Megastore. It was only CAD$12.99 or US$7.00. This morning I got Keiko Matsui's brand new CD "Wildflower" from Amazon.com. No other CD store here in Vancouver, new or used, has Y & T. I looked at several places downtown today without any success! I'll try the suburbs next like Surrey, White Rock, and Coquitlam. I know Burnaby won't have them. I haven't tried any pawn brokers yet. In Vancouver, like I said at theloudestrock.com, when you go to one used CD store, you've been to them all. :crying:

Just got in the mail today Fivesongs from Tommy Dempsey, former lead singer of In The Pink and Sunshine Jive. Other than the fact that there really are only five songs, it's a great album. Really mellow tunes, but finely crafted. I'll really be hoping he releases another FULL length album in the future.

    • This band does absolutely ZERO for me.
    • Love it!  Very new-breed DRN... I don't normally dig that type of thing from my favorite 80's bands, but I'm good with it here.  Once again, Daiker is all over this one. Look at Mel slide into everyone of those notes on bass.  Dude is SOOOOOOOOOOOO damn good.  Such a shame he's virtually unknown outside Portland, Oregon (and a those of you in-the-know for this type of music).
    • The guitar-work is great.  I think it's a pretty decent cover. Look, I've been a HUGE fan since 1983, so you'll be hard-pressed to get me to say anything negative about this band.  Those of you who weren't around to see them on the Pyromania and Hysteria tours... God I feel badly for you.  "Top of their game" is a HUGE understatement.  The Beatles of my era for sure.
    • Only point I was looking to make was that I agreed with the prior post above which had mentioned being frustrated that the guys hadn't put out many new releases over the last 15 years and that it may be beneficial to work with a better producer again.  Your follow up post pointed to the time between their earlier releases being similar and I responded to explain how I felt that was different, no worries though, we just see things differently
    • Inglorious indicated a few months ago that they had finished recording the songs for their third album, hinted as being heavier than their prior releases, which should be released via Frontiers in February 2019.  The first song/video from the upcoming album is out now https://www.planetrock.com/news/rock-news/inglorious-say-heavier-third-album-is-done-and-reveal-release-date/    
    • From 84 (the year after Pyromania) until 99 they released 4 studio albums, yes, but from 2000 until 2015 they released 3 studio albums, not 2. Not really that much difference. They also released the covers album, so that was pretty much the same level of output. They still continue to tour regularly and had issues such as Campbells cancer scare and recovery from that, plus the musical landscape is vastly different to that first time scale you mention.   Really not sure what your point is here?      
    • Uh...it doesn't sound bad.  Not as raw as the original and I think that hurts this version. But...if you're gonna do a cover, get the lyrics right.  "It's the eye of the tiger, it's the dream of the fight?"  Uh... no.
    • Damn good album...Has moved up my list also. I think as of now my top 4 are probably: Kissin' Dynamite Shiraz Lane Treat Maverick I'm not even bothering listing #5 as I'm saving a spot in the top 5 for Midnite City....Almost expecting that it'll slot in at either #1 or #2. And probably a good chance Nordic Union pushes the list also. Another release I'm really digging is Hearts On Fire.  Not officially out yet but have been listening to it for a month or so from doing a premium pre order.  Not quite making my top 5 but probably in the 6-8 range at the moment.
