We have very different taste in music my friend...and that's okay ;)

 

The Whitesnake, Talon, Michael Bormann and Brother Firetribe are all excellent from his list. :tumbsup:

 

 

 

Depends on who you ask...Whitesnake was good as was Bormann but the other two blew imo. But hey, if someone else likes them more power to them ;)

 

Well I feel the same way about most of the Modern shit you listen to so oh well. :whistle:

 

 

That's because you're brain is rotted with weed and Judas Priest... :whistle:

 

You are not trying to compare Modern Rock with one of the greatest Metal bands of all time, are you(that would be Judas Priest just in case you're a little slow :lol: )? :blink:

 

Who are you? :unsure:

Haha, Rafo's is probably the list I agree with most so far, to be honest.

 

Anyway, I stopped handling my list towards the end of the year so this is how I'm going to call it an end to the year:

 

Melodic HR:

 

1. ROCKARMA - Bring it

:lol: Dude, you rock! If you ever come to Jersey, I owe you a pink drink or six. :beerbang:

... and a cuddle.

 

I'd take you up on that! :)

 

Seriously, I hope you know the way I operate well enough to know I didn't just put it there because I'm in love with the guitari- uh, because my good e-buddy is the guitarist. Of all the CDs I heard this year, it seriously had the most songs I truly loved, right up my alley on it. Just like Blind Date did a few years ago, it brought my right back to the sound I live for. :tumbsup: Nice work mate.

I'm late to the party but after much pulling of hair and gnashing of teeth, I finally got my "Best of 2008" list compiled for Detritus 'zine over the weekend. It was a tough job cuz I didn't acquire nearly as many CDs this year as I usually do (frickin economy!), and of the ones I did acquire, there were fewer 2008 releases to choose from -- much of what I got was from '07 and prior. So for what it's worth, here's my top 10 of 2008. (NOTE: Some of these were released overseas in '07 but didn't get a US release till '08. So don't bother posting any nitpicky replies saying "so-and-so came out in 2007!")

 

Bad Biscut - WE STILL BELIEVE THE HYPE

Circle II Circle - DELUSIONS OF GRANDEUR

Dokken - LIGHTNING STRIKES AGAIN

Helstar - SINS OF THE PAST

Jon Oliva's Pain - GLOBAL WARNING

Pyramaze - IMMORTAL

The Stoned - S/T

Pharaoh - BE GONE

Motorhead - MOTORIZER

Testament - THE FORMATION OF DAMNATION

 

Pleasantly surprised by:

Metallica - DEATH MAGNETIC

 

"Meh, Whatever:"

Judas Priest - NOSTRADAMUS

Iced Earth - THE CRUCIBLE OF MAN: SOMETHING WICKED PART 2

 

Ignored on Purpose:

Guns N Roses: CHINESE DEMOCRACY

 

Most Disappointing:

X-Sinner: WORLD COVERED IN BLOOD

 

Cutest Guitarist:

Rockarma - BRING IT! :wub:

Thought I'd missed one. 'Glasshouse' is still a great disc :tumbsup:

 

The new one is out 1st March - seems to be only 7 tracks, so only an EP. maybe.

Yeah, good luck ever playing that Whitesnake album again. How the hell on earth did you fool yourself into putting that into the 3rd spot, above a bunch of great albums? Apart from how average it is, it has the replay value of a horseshoe.

The HEAT stuff more than BF. But yeah, honestly, I play that kind of stuff in every day life, but my listening habits are so completely out of whack at the moment, whilst rating my whole collection, that it's hard to comment. But yes, HEAT do get regular plays. And BF...

 

Stuff like that Whitesnake album will 100% be in my sell list when I finally get around to listing an abundance of my albums for sale. HEAT and BF will definitely not be.

Can't believe it was that long ago.

True - i still think of Work of Art as a 'new' band but they have been around for nearly a decade.

Easily this is my favorite WOA release. Yesterday I was talking with Robert about Her Only Lie. Immortal tune.

    • greed,very much in the vein(not as good as) Wild Rose and last years  Odyssey Desperado,very safe but why oh why make a lyric video when the lyricas are so silly? Is it just to emphasise it?
    • lol @ the lyrics. This reminds me of that recent band that had very bad lyrics and cool melodies. But it's cool like those bands like Wild Rose, and others I can't think of at the moment. The one that starts with an L? Who knows... but it's nice safe melodic rock with silly lyrics. 
    • And here it is... it's on now?! Oh well, here it is. One of the coolest songs I've been enjoying in 2018, and probably AW's best song to date;  
    • I don't know where we've been posting about new releases from these guys through the years, but they've been churning them out at a decent level. There's a cool tune on the new album referencing this dream of theirs; that they're not in it for success but for the love of the music. Anyway... They haven't been setting my world alight, and no album compares to their debut, but they're okay. Anyway, the new mini-album (7 tracks) is mostly more of the same. But there is one song that has actually set my 2018 playlist on fire, which I think a lot of people here would like.  And, just found out it's not on youtube.   But it's called 'Get It On' and I'll try to post it when it's available. Get your ears on it if you can. It actually may appeal to the synthwave fans here... not that it's a synthwave song. But it's well off the AW beaten track... but in a great way.  This song is quite fine too, though, just to have something to post;  
    • Sounds worth checking out. I will seek. 
    • Yumsex. I still can't for the life of me understand why Steve West didn't play drums on the debut The Defiants album... kinda sad to see him and Bruno apart for what I am guessing might be the first time in their post D2 playing career? No, I lie. Westworld. But generally, the two have been together in everything and I was surprised when Mr West wasn't on The Defiants album. Good to hear he is home again.  And I agree - Eclipse and The Defiants is a nice start to 2019 for sure. 
    • Hmmm. There is a great song in there. But I also hear a bit of POL-ism that actually brings the song back a few pegs. If it was let to run free it'd be great... but yeah, just get rid of any POL influence please. Still, pretty cool tune. 
    • Yeah, I would agree with that as well.
