Agreed on the first 2 for sure!. 'The Hunger' has some great tunes, but not as consistent. 'Soul Provider' and 'Time Love And Tenderness' had some good tracks on them aswell, and there has been the odd song since, but not much else to 'Rock' home about. He's still got an awesome voice though for sure.

The first 3 are great and as Jez says, subsequent songs are pretty good, always liked his vocals too.

 

Only just finished playing Everybody`s Crazy - excellent album :tumbsup:

If we all just keep quiet, maybe he'll stay in hiding and never record again. (Fingers crossed)

His best work was landing Nicolette Sheridan...

 

No doubt. Still not sure how.

He walked up to her in a bar and said "Hey baby! Can I buy you a drink?" And she replied " You don't have to, I'll sleep with anybody".

It was love at first Alcoholic Haze!!!! :popcorn:

I think my fave is his first album, I prefer it to Everybodys crazy. But after the Hunger :crying: he started peddling the kind of nonsense he did on his first two solo releases (as Michael Bolotin) except with better production. Yuk!

But yeah the 1st two releases are essential and the Hunger is well worth getting but a slight drop song wise.

The Hunger has some great songs too but the first 2 albums are possibly better :tumbsup:

The Hunger is a great title......considering he's "homeless" after being kicked outta his house by his girlpal!

 

Homeless in that sense probably means living in a five star hotel until he can be bothered looking for a new mansion!

'Fools Game', 'She Did The Same Thing' & 'Can't Turn It Off' are absolute killer tunes - 80's AOR/MR at it's very best.

It was with trepidation that I forked out $4 to get the Everybody's Crazy cd recently. It just arrived in the mail. I didn't open it straight away cause I didn't want anyone to see the title. "New Album who's it by?" said the postmistress who knows my cd obsession. "Yeah,  it's ummm... Motley Crue" I lied.

When I got home I put on the title track and holy crap... it is an awesome song. Still, I wish he changed his name when he went all Mother's Day gift musically. I am worried someone will spot the cd on my shelf and then think I'm a wanker with shit taste...

Fuck you Michael Bolton. But I do like this album...

I like the albums up to 'Soul Provider' but after that album it's been downhill all the way.  A few good songs here and there. 

I agree, but post "Soul Provider" he was banging Nichollette Sheridan in her prime.

Surely that must count for something?

Mr. Cheese was good with Blackjack too, especially on the the "Worlds Apart" album. Very nice FM Radio Rock.

Without a doubt the most phenomenal and cultivating musical performer in the history of all music, his story will go down in history with the likes of only Jesus H Christ, Im petitioning for it be mandated all school music programs must be required to teach at least one semester of Bolton covering all aspects of his legendary pop career, and have at least 1 day a week where kids are allowed to sit back, while the teacher doesnt speak but only plays Boltons classics, then read off his lyrics in a poetic style to encourage kids to explore their most deepest poetry styles, I even believe there needs to be a centralized Bolton museum carrying nothing but Bolton memo and para.

    • It is definitely flashdance. I can't unhear it now.
    • Everyone I have spoken to from cities are shitting themselves over this Omricon variant. I say to them "don't you want things to go back to normal?". But they really don't. They are loving living in a police state. I have spoken to a number of ex-prisoners as well who have similar thoughts about jail. I think a lot of people are wired to like having freedom and choice taken away from them. They enjoy having fewer options. It is bizarre to me.
    • the first song wasn't the clip I heard - this sound more promising to me https://www.facebook.com/100764135031478/posts/426269785814243/  
    • mmmm. Erik great, verses great, solo typical but still good, chorus suspect.  Am I the only one who hears Flashdance in the chorus 🤔 🤣🤣🤣
    • I am not here to convince any of you the Way. I believe everyone has the means and now makes their choice as per free will. Yet , isn't it amusing (well it is to me) how fundamentalist atheists are in their certainty. And I guess that is why you are so intolerant to other beliefs. There is no room for doubt in your minds. You feel you know all the answers and that there are no mysteries outside of your understanding. Though you are just a speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant and then believing that is the entire knowledge of the elephant. Good luck with that. 
    • Yeah, I mean that's a fair call. This is what people originally were concerned about and it's gradually happened and not many people have really noticed or cared. Tracking everyone everywhere they go. (if you scan in  )
    • I think generally that this new "threat" is being taken with a grain of salt. I'd like to think so anyway. Regardless, by the time we all say ENOUGH, the new powers put in place by ALL Governments and new "digital ID's" and tracking apps will be well established.  Well played, the powers that be, well played. 
    • New video for ”Lost In The Night”.    
    • I had a couple of videos recommended on youtube today so I looked at them. One was an interview with the doctor in South Africa who "discovered" and diagnosed the new variant, and she spent the entire interview saying how mild it was, and that the patients hadn't even actually shown any symptoms with the variant. The other video I watched was a mainstream, panic-endorsed media interview with two "top doctors" who both said that if this variant is as mild as suggested it is actually better to let it spread and become the dominant strain of covid.  The problem is, that around these two things, as soon as the hosts/reporters start talking, they're back in full panic mode, asking if borders should be shut, countries locked and doing their best and hardest to make sure that panic and hysteria is returned as soon as humanly possible.  So I want to know when a law can be passed where people in public positions that spread panic can be shot on the spot. That's my ideal wish, but in the real world of 2021, when are these panic merchants going to be stood down from their positions? It seems like this new variant is absolutely nothing at all that anyone anywhere should be worried about, and if you believe the "top doctors," spreading it should be embraced. So how does this whole panic hysteria storm get whipped up in the space of a few days? And why aren't people being held accountable for whipping up this madness and stopping actual life from ever continuing again?   For anyone interested, the two clips I saw were these-
