All of these were tough.


D2 over Europe, but I love that Europe album.

Bang Tango over Trixter.

Hardline over Bonfire.

GNR over LA Guns, again very close.

Lynch Mob over Don Dokken, this could of went either way.

Maiden over Priest, not really close but that's a great album from Priest.

Europe over Danger Danger but I curse you for making me choose. Obviously I love D2 much more as a band, but Europe truly nailed it perfectly on that flawless album and few would beat it.


HAHA!!! This was a joke, right? :lol: Trixter of course.


Bonfire over Hardline easily, even though I love the Hardline disc.


Gunners over LA Guns... just. If it was 'Cocked and loaded' I'd have chosen LA Guns.


Lynch Mob only just over Don Dokken, but like Wes said this could go either way.


Battle #6

I couldn't care less but in order to get my vote in I went for Maiden because I assume it's better than the Priest one???

Danger Danger (Just)

Bang Tango, if I have to. Bang Tango/Trixter = Like choosing what crap to put in your sandwich to be honest.

Hardline (although both top discs)

Guns 'n Roses (although it bores the shit out of me now after 20 years of it)

Don Dokken (Great solo disc)

Iron Maiden (My fave Maiden album, so an obvious choice)

Just don't like what I have heard mate. Same old same old, that didn't stand out above anything else of it's type. 'Nobody's A Hero' was an ok song, but I didn't like anything else. The debut cd I hated even more. I Had the 'Hear' cd and traded it virtually straightaway, which I don't normally do with hardly any of my discs, so there ya go. :tumbsup:

Wow... I can't believe GNR is kicking LA Guns' ass so bad. :eek:

I'm more surprised Bang Tango is even with Trixter. wtf?


Also a bit surprised to see Europe going down so easily to Danger Danger. As some might have guessed, a bigger fan of D2 you'll not find than myself (and the brilliant debut is my 3rd fave in the discography), but I just think 'Prisoners in paradise' is a stunning disc.

I love these kinda polls. How'd I miss this one?


#1: N/A cuz I can't stand either band, honestly.

#2: Bang Tango

#3: N/A cuz I am not familiar with either band.

#4: L.A. Guns

#5: Don Dokken

#6: Iron Maiden (tho it's a tough call on this one as Priest and Maiden are two of my all time faves...N.O.T.B. gets more play around my house than BRITISH STEEL does nowadays tho...)

3. HARDLINE - Fireworks and the band BONFIRE cannot come close to Neil Schon's playing and songs on Double Eclipse. That's just a near perfect album


4. GUNS N'ROSES - Appetite - for the the hits


5. LYNCH MOB - NO! It's Don Dokken - oh, wait! It's LYNCH MOB! I remember getting bored on some parts of Up From The Ashes


6. IRON MAIDEN - Wrong choice of album for Judas Priest. If Number is paired against Screaming for Vengeance then this might have a different outcome. Or not... Or... No... Maybe...

None of these were particularly tough for me...


1. Danger Danger: s/t

2. Trixter: "Hear"

3. Hardline: "Double Eclipse"

4. GNR: "Appetite for Destruction"

5. Lynch Mob: "Wicked Sensation"

6. Iron Maiden: "Number of the Beast"


I see I voted with the majority. I feel like such a sheep... :anon:

    • Got the album a day early. The rest of the album is pretty much on par with the singles released, so if you like them you will probably like the whole album. Final track is an instrumental, which is probably the closest to what people would have expected from Mick, pretty bluesy.  
    • Arrived this morning: Rolling Quartz - Fighting (Korean import) Mick Mars - The other side of Mars
    • Owned this on cassette and CD, but never came with glasses I did though replace my CD with a Jap copy a few years ago to get the original version of Ain't the same (the version on Cuts is much better).
    • Album out April 14th. From Pride & Joy Music: A Neverending John’s Dream is a Melodic Hard ‘n’ Heavy band formed in Barcelona in 2022 when Joan M. Heredia (drums, vocal, and composer) teamed up with David Vidal (guitars), Paul E. Schuster (bass) and Xavier Miró (keyboards). Joan M. Heredia started to play drums, to sing and to write songs more than 20 years ago, has been playing in dozens of bands but so far never has thought about releasing own material until now. A Neverending John’s Dream’s debut album, “Coming Back to Paradise”, was completely written and produced by Joan M. Heredia. The recordings and the mix took place at Moontower Studios in Barcelona. Erik Mårtensson (Eclipse) at Mass Destruction Production Studios (Sweden) mastered this release. The cover artwork and the CD layout were designed by Jan Yrlund, at Darkgrove Design (Finland); photos were taken by Irene Serrano. “Coming Back to Paradise” is a melodic hard ‘n’ heavy album, with a late 80s/ early 90s feel, but with an up to date production. The lyrics are telling stories about a lot of experiences, centred in human condition, music, and nature. The song chosen as a single with a video clip (filmed by Visual Noise Barcelona) is “Coming Back to Paradise”, a veritable hard rock hit with the homonymous title of the album. The meaning of the band’s name is a bit philosophic. The creation of music has no end (Neverending), and this fact, is like a dream for Joan M. Heredia (John). Live gigs for Spain around currently being planned.      
    • "The Show Must Go On". A magnificent track. The original by Queen is beyond KILLER, but I just discovered today that Australia's sweetheart, Delta Goodrem has covered it. It's a worthy tribute.  The best cover that nearly surpasses the original is the EPIC version by JSS. Of course, the fap value of Delta has to be taken in to account, so it's a quandary.         
    • I’m surprised there’s not more of a buzz about these guys here on the board. “Tell Me” and “ Take on Me” (no, those aren’t White Lion and A-Ha cover songs) are both solid AOR/melodic rock songs. The vocals on the verses could use a little more “umph”, but the choruses are quite tasty.
