Recommended Posts

Check out this Italian band, great melodic hard rock in the vein of Bon jovi,danger danger,Lynch mob and Adriangale.

The singer reminds me Paul Laine and Jamie Rowe.

One of my favorite cd this year.

The Hungry Heart disc is pretty damn good MHR.

Sure I've heard it before and maybe it's been done better but it's great to hear a band play this kind of music this well in 2008. I think I might like this more than the HEAT release.

It is better than the likes of Homerun, H.A.R.D and Hardreams (what's up with all the H's!!!) but like Andre said, it's miles away from competing with the likes of HEAT and Marcello/Vestry, imo.

 

To me, it just sounds like the band are going for a sound that is out of their grasp, at this point in time. They want to sound like the big acts from 1989/1990 but they just don't have the ability, yet, imo. And the vocals do hold them back further too. Hooks/choruses range from a couple of great ones to quite a few pretty average ones. Not a bad disc, but not one of the best from 2008, imo.

:yikes: one of the most shocking things ive heard in many a year.

 

That would be near the bottom of a list of every album ive heard in the last 10 years.

Wow you're hard to please. I think it's solid stuff. Sure it's nothing mind blowing but it's got some good tunes and the singer doesn't bother me at all. I mean he's no worse than the accent you get from Klaus Meine when I listen to The Scorpions.

Mate, you say it yourself right there:

it's solid stuff. Sure it's nothing mind blowing but it's got some good tunes
As I said, it's not bad, but there are many better CDs from this year and every other year.

I didn't say their weren't better cds from this year or other years.

Hell this won't even come close to my top 20 or even 30, I was just saying it's solid and I enjoyed it.

Sharks are a myth... unless you come via Adelaide. Just come over the top end... although then a crocodile will probably get you. Oh well, worth a try anyway.

H.EA.T is a very good band, they are very young (around 20 ) that's good.

In my top ten I must add tesla, Poley rivera and TNT, 3 albums I really like.

Now I'm listening the new Enuff z'nuff, circle II circle and Eguy.

Still Hungry heart is my favorite by now.

I like the Hungryheart album quite a bit as well (have been listening to it all week in my car stereo), but I agree with the above posters that it's nowhere near the top of the AOTY list. That spot would be occupied IMHO by "Brother Firetribe: Heart Full Of Fire." I REALLY enjoy listening to M/V, H.E.A.T., Gypsy Rose, and a bunch of other strong albums released this calendar year, but Brother Firetribe tops them all for me.......I do hope that Hungryheart continues to progress as a band and puts out an even better second album, they've definitley gained me as a fan :headbanger: .

Wow, this CD's in a bit of trouble with me. Spun it again yesterday;

 

First track is a dud, the second song, 'Stealing The Night' is my fave of the whole album... but what happens next from song 3-7 is that they are complete fillers for me. I skipped through them all on my spin yesterday! 'Hard Lovin’ Woman' is only okay, but the only saving grave for this album is that all three of the last tracks are very strong. Love the last three, especially 'It Takes Two'. But you just can't have that many fillers in the middle of a disc, imo.

 

I know to each their own, opinions are opinions, free love, flower power hippy hugs etc... but whoever is saying this is better than HEAT (or even comparable) is on some messy drugs. ;)

I guess I'm on drugs because I like it a little more than Heat but Heat might be just a little on the lite side for me. I believe it's track 4 "Only One" that is my favorite song, I think that song is awesome. There's 5 or 6 other tunes I like quite a bit as well but there are few tracks towards the end that I'd clasify as filler.

I know many people have been dissapointed by Tnt since Mills arrived.

In Norway they still get a good success.

In Atlantis there is some very strange songs like Peter Sellers (weird track) but also some great ones, like Atlantis and ''me and dad''.

About Hungry heart I really love Rock city,river of soul,only one and Gina (micheal bolton cover), I must try the original, I don't bother about M. Bolton except for his first two cds.

Hey even I don't like this better than H.E.A.T, & that was one overrated & mediocre album. This is kinda okay stuff, that's definitely reminiscent of the Marcello/Vestry album (but without the keyboards). I reckon there would have been about 8 million bands doing this sort of thing in the mid-80's, & even in modern years bands like 91 SUITE absolutely kill this. If they got a keyboard player (the sound is desperately thin), tightened up the harmonies & wrote some stronger tunes they could make a CD worth picking up...

Yeah, although the same could be said for a lot of bands.

    • Releases July 26. $47.08 at ImportCDs: https://www.importcds.com/dynamite-china-years-complete-recordings-1988-1993/5013929929920 8CD complete collection of recordings released by China Records. Featuring what most consider to be the classic line-up of The Dogs D'Amour; Jo 'Dog' Almeida on guitar, Steve James on bass, the onomatopoeic Bam on drums, and of course fronted by songwriter and singer, the inimitable Tyla. Propelled by the albums' three singles 'The Kid from Kensington', 'I Don't Want You to Go' and 'How Come It Never Rains' edging their way up the charts, when The Dogs D'Amour's genre-defining 1988 "debut" 'In The Dynamite Jet Saloon' (CD2) was released in 1988, it must have looked like the band was an overnight sensation. But this couldn't have been further from the truth. The Dogs D'Amour originally formed in 1983, and had already recorded two previous "debut" albums. First was 1984's now highly collectable 'The State We're In', for Finnish label Kumibeat. Further recordings were made in 1985 and 1986 for Watanabe Records in Japan, and it's the latter where this collection kicks off. 'The (Un)Authorised Bootleg Album' (CD1) was the record originally intended for Japan. The second set in this collection is the aforementioned In 'The Dynamite Jet Saloon' (CD2), bursting with classics. A highly prolific band in their earliest days, 'Errol Flynn' (re-titled 'King Of The Thieves' in the States) (CD3) was released in 1989 as was the extended mini-album, 'A Graveyard Of Empty Bottles Vol. 1' (CD4), a collection of acoustic songs that reached the UK Top 20. 1990 saw the release of '... Straight?!!' (CD5) featuring the singles 'Victims of Success', 'Empty World' and 'Back On The Juice'. Unfortunately, and in true rock 'n' roll tradition, the band split up on stage in Los Angeles in 1991. Thankfully the band regrouped for the self-explanatory '... More Unchartered Heights Of Disgrace' (CD6) in 1993. This eight CD collection is completed with no less than two discs of rarities, live tracks and B-sides with 'Singles, B-Sides & Rarities' (CD7) and 'Even More Singles, B-Sides & Rarities' (CD8), making this the most complete and comprehensive collection of the band's recordings for China.   - Disc 1 - 1 Firework Girl 2 Chains 3 Gold 4 Pourin' Out My Heart 5 Wait Until I'm Dead 6 How Do You Fall in Love Again? 7 Kiss This Joint 8 Heroine 9 Tales of Destruction 10 Dynamite Jet Saloon 11 Swingin' the Bottle - Disc 2 - 1 Debauchery 2 I Don't Want You to Go 3 How Come It Never Rains 4 Last Bandit 5 Medicine Man 6 Gonna Get It Right 7 Everything I Want 8 Heartbreak 9 Billy Two Rivers 10 Wait Until I'm Dead 11 Sometimes 12 The Kid from Kensington 13 The State I'm in - Disc 3 - 1 Drunk Like Me 2 Goddess from the Gutter 3 Hurricane 4 Satellite Kid 5 Errol Flynn 6 Planetary Pied Piper 7 Princess Valium 8 Dogs Hair 9 Trail of Tears 10 Ballad of Jack 11 The Prettiest Girl in the World 12 The Girl Behind the Glass 13 Things Seem to Go Wrong 14 Oooh!
