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:

    • When you say original, you mean this?  
    • W.A.S.P. - Inside the Electric Circus  W.A.S.P. - The Headless Children  Pop Will Eat Itself - Dos Dedos Mis Amigos (Remaster) / A Lick of the Old Cassette Box Ultrasound - Ultrasound  Red Sun Rising - Thread Screaming Trees - Uncle Anesthesia 
    • It's so much better to listen to the original, Erik has done some great covers, but this is a miss imo.
    • This made my recommended list for last year. Far removed sound/style wise from the awesome debut album and only one of the original lineup is featured,  but very very good all the same. 
    • This was released last year and pretty good it is.   From Andy Rethmeier's Youtube channel: A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away ... well not quite that far away, Hartlepool in County Durham to be precise, a band of rare quality was formed. That band was called White Spirit and after their debut single, "Backs To The Grind" was released on the legendary Neat Records in 1980, the major labels came knocking. They were eager to snap up a band that had far more to offer than the majority of NWOBHM bands that they were lazily bracketed with. MCA Records won the race to sign White Spirit and with a line-up of Phil Brady, Graeme Crallan, Janick Gers, Malcolm Pearson and Bruce Ruff, their self-titled debut album was released later in 1980 to great acclaim. A constant schedule of touring saw the band build up a large and loyal following, but changes in personnel saw Janick Gers join Ian Gillan, to be replaced by Mick Tucker. Toby Sadler took over bass duties from Phil Brady and Bruce Ruff made way for an unknown singer, called Brian Howe. The new and improved White Spirit entered the studio to work on their second album with then Gillan keysman Colin Towns at the production helm. Alas, the album was never completed, the band broke up and musicians went their separate ways. Mick Tucker joined Tank, later followed by Graeme Crallan. Sadler slid easily into Airrace. Mal Pearson stepped away from music for a spell before returning to action with legends The Sweet. Singer Brian Howe crossed the Atlantic and became frontman for Ted Nugent, before achieving mega platinum success as the replacement for Paul Rodgers in Bad Company. So White Spirit were seemingly consigned to music history, with former members proceeding to forge impressive careers built on this promising foundation.  Four decades on and the location of these 2nd album sessions remained a mystery. Presumed to have been consigned to a skip, as was the fate of so many priceless mastertapes carelessly discarded over the years. The day following Brian Howe’s tragic death from a heart attack in May 2020, Tucker and Pearson were on the phone reflecting on those heady White Spirit days. The missing tapes were once more discussed, but still neither had any idea where to find them. Fate stepped in, and whilst preparing to relocate to France, Mal Pearson was rifling through his furniture in storage when he found a dusty old bedside cabinet. Inside were four sets of tapes. One labelled Chiswick Studios – White Spirit. This was it. The one they’d all thought was lost for ever. The tape was handed over to Conquest Music boss and Tank guitarist Cliff Evans. He arranged for the delicate and risky process of baking the tapes to preserve and retrieve the old recordings and transfer them to digital. Successful as the process was, the sound quality of some elements of the tracks were just not good enough for today’s ears, so Tucker & Pearson decided to replace all of the musical accompaniment with a stellar line-up of players. Neil Murray (Whitesnake) and Russell Gilbrook (Uriah Heep) made up the rhythm section, with the guitars and keyboards replaced by Mick and Mal.   Tracklisting: 1. Right Or Wrong (lead vocals – Jeff Scott Soto) 2 .Runaway (lead vocals – Brian Howe) 3. The Dice Rolls On (lead vocals – Lee Small) 4. Lady Of The Night (lead vocals – Brian Howe) 5. Gotta Get Out (lead vocals – Brian Howe) 6. Better Watch Out (lead vocals – Jeff Scott Soto) 7. Don't Say No (lead vocals – Lee Small) 8. Wait A Little Longer (lead vocals – Brian Howe) 9. Holy Water (lead vocals – Steve Overland) 10. Rock And Roll (Is Good For You) (lead vocals – Brian Howe)
