Michael Bolton first three albums

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.

    • Well, my alcohol induced thread got the attention it deserved.  Sorry guys. Here's the question again with the answer highlighted, for those interested.     
    • Haven't really enjoyed Tourniquet since Guy Ritter left. His vocals along with Gary Lenaire's technichal prowess really made the band for me. Nothing beats the first trilogy of albums.  If you haven't already got it, you might like the Flood "Polarised" album that came out in 2022. It has both Guy and Gary Lenaire in the band. Sounds much more like the classic Tourniquet sound.
    • I think the “New” Whitecross is the “All grown up” Whitecross.  I enjoyed the first 3-4 Albums then got tired of the sound. This EP that was released was/is really good and it wasn’t mixed and is still really good! For me the EP is Darker than anything Whitecross/Rex has ever written. The music has a more modern metal sound w a new unique (Not Ratt) sound.  I haven’t been this excited about a new Album release since Tourniquet did ‘Gazing at Medusa’.  I only hope that I’m not let down like I was w the Tourniquet Album when released.  Lord willing it’s allot like the EP or better.    I recomend to all you Whitecross/Rex Carrol fans to check Rex’s interview on the “Imaginary Music” Podcast.  Rex explains allot of why the line up change and the new direction of Whitecross.  Lot of other great interviews w other Artists too!

    • Interesting that they call it an AOR album...I wonder if that was intentional seeing as how their last one was closer to hard rock and IMO not up to par with their better works. Uninspiring production and Jidhed's voice sounded a little weak... Eternity on the other hand was awesome, but geez, that was already 10 years ago. Do they still have enough left in the tank?
