Lightning Strikes Again(yes the whole album) - Jon Levin(Dokken)

 

Levin is just a f#@king monster on this disc.

:banger: Hell Yes He Is! :bowdown:

 

He is almost to Guitar God level just for his performance on that disc alone. :headbanger:

 

Ok, I was just looking right passed that disc but I keep hearing he rips on on it. Gonna have to give it a shot now.

 

Besides the incredible playing from Levin it's a damn good album that has many great songs on it.

It's a combination of Back for the Attack, Under Lock and Key and a few newer elements thrown in here and there as well. :tumbsup:

One More For The Rodeo - UFO

 

Obsession is one of my all-time favorite albums, mostly because of Schenker's incredible "noodling." His solos are awesome, but this disc is FULL of little trills and throwaways he plays over the verses and between chord phrases that are better than most other guitar players' solos. What a talent...

 

Anyway, back on track, I choose "Out In the Night" a short but effective solo shred by Lars Boquist of Pole Position. Nice chops.

And that`s why he`s been my favourite guitarist for nigh on 30 years :bowdown::bowdown::bowdown:

 

Great song, love the abum too, Force It is my personal favourite and the album that I rate as having the best guitar playing on :tumbsup:

Erase the Slate - Dokken

 

Only in Dokken, replacing George Lynch, would Reb Beach be a step down. (But it's a small step.) :beerbang:

Deep Purple- Ted the Mechanic

 

Steve's playing is excellent.

 

I've always dug that song even though it is so different to what classic Deep Purple is.

And yes Steve does play his ass off on that one. :tumbsup:

Agreed, totally different than the old stuff but very choice IMO. I've actually been playing that disc in the car the last couple of days and digging it more with every spin (even though I've had it for years).

A Little More Love - Zeno

 

I dig Zeno as well. Does not get the acknowledgment that alot of, less deserving, other players do.

 

Zeno's main problem is a lack of identity. There's more to being noticed than wearing black hats. I love the guy, but he sounds like a great cover band guitarist.

Oh no, definitely do not hate hearing your playing. Just the opposite Pete. So Aldo gets double praise from me today. :banger:

"Alone/Together" - Derek Lashua(Fashion Police)

 

Nothing mind blowing about this guys playing but I love his tone and they all seem to fit the song nicely, which is important IMO.

    • Out February 26 on AFM Records. It’s been more than two years now since Bonfire, following the outstanding debut of their current vocalist Alexx Stahl on Byte The Bullet (2017), were unanimously celebrated for their successor album Temple Of Lies (2018). Two years which saw the band rock countless stages at home and abroad before going on to set the bar even higher with their latest offering: Fistful Of Fire is definitely one of the toughest Bonfire albums ever and has been released in March 2020. As everybody knows today, this album release was ill-fated by that worldwide Covid-19 pandemic – store had closed short after the release and the tour had to be postponed and even cancelled in the end. It’s a fact, that the band did not play one single show with their new album to that very day.However the band from Ingolstadt is trying to looking forward. New plans arouse for an upcoming project. It was summer 2020 when the band again hit the “Flatliners Recording Studios” to start recording the new longplayer “Roots”. It’s a magnificent "almost unplugged"-album with 24 tracks recorded completely over again and interpreted in new ways. It includes very young ballads like “When An Old Man Cries” and old evergreens like “You Make Me Feel”, contains old rock hits like “Ready 4 Reaction” and "American Nights" but also arising rock hymns like “The Devil Made Me Do It”, so every fan of this band will find something on this one. On top of that in features 5 brandnew songs that have been created while acrowdfunding campaign as remittance works for fans.With this release and the new campaign on StartNext the band tries to get some money into their empty band accounts and offers quite some musical delicacy with regards to the content. Besides various merch items, living-room concerts, VIP Tickets for their streaming release show and special rarities like original master tapes or guitar amps, the new album “Roots” can be ordered here: https://www.startnext.com/bonfire-back-to-the-rootsLet’s hope for better times, in which live-concerts can take place again and let us support and celebrate one of Germany’s biggest rock bands in alternate ways until that day.   1.  Starin' Eyes 2. American Nights 3. Let Me Be Your Water 4. Price of Lovin' You 5. Comin' Home 6. Ready 4 Reaction 7. Give It a Try 8. Sleeping All Alone 9. Who'S Foolin' Who 10. Why Is It Never Enough 11. Fantasy 12. When An Old Man Cries 13. Love Don'T Lie 14. Lonely Nights 15. Under Blue Skies 16. You Make Me Feel 17. No More 18. The Devil Made Me Do It 19. Without You 20. Your Love Is Heaven to Me 21. Piece of My Heart 22. Youngbloods 23. Our Hearts Don'T Feel the Same 24. Wolfmen
    • Lillian Axe was at the time my favourite band. Poetic Justice might be the best produced and greatest guitar sound on any album I’ve ever heard. Love & War was a bargain bin purchase in 1990...based only on the cover. Turned out to be one of the greatest releases ever...like Hysteria this album has so many epic classic tracks, this album deserved to be a massive hit. The debut was solid, sounded like a Ratt album especially with Robyn Crosby’s involvement. Psycho...was the bands last great release...a change in sound to what we see today from them started on this release. Like Poetic Justice such a well produced and beautifully sounding album...which includes two of the best ballads ever.    In my eyes and to my ears, only Metallica with Lightning, Masters and Justice has another band released such a massive trifecta of releases like Lillian Axe did with Love & War, Poetic Justice and Psycho...
    • "Nasty Bit 'O Business", from a cool little album :-)
    • Big fan of their debut album, shame we never got a follow up. I’m sure they announced on social media a couple of years back they was reforming but sadly nothing came of it. Great tune..  
    • Killer song - that’s reminded me to dig out the album. 
    • Maybe Hollywood ran out of money or they prefer to push the Scream
    • New song 'Rocks To Stones'.
