I'm surprised at how many people didn't like Hear. It's actually a really good album but the sound makes it almost unbearable to listen to.

 

And who's alleging the sound/production on "Hear" is unbearable? Sounds fine to me, and I'm a stickler for good production.

 

Yeah, Jarred, you completely 100% lost me there, mate. What do you mean? 'Hear!' has a killer production job. You sure we're speaking of the same disc???

 

 

 

The sound to me is awful. The bass & kick drum is non existant while the high's are so high that if you crank it up the cymbals break up the sound.

 

My questions is are you guys listening to the same disc? :lol:

No bass and kick drum? Dude, seriously, you need to buy another copy of this CD because yours is f*cked!!! :lol:;) I promise you there's nothing wrong with the "proper" version of this CD.

I guess I need to make time to spin this disc again soon since I don't remember there being any production/sound issues. :screwy:

The Japanese pressing? You mean the special edition where Mark Scott recorded all his drum tracks with chopsticks and PJ Farley recorded all his bass tracks with cat guts? Yeah, I heard that one was average. It makes sense now. Trade it in for a US pressing. That one kicks ass. Trust us. ;)

Voted for Bite down hard and Trixter's S/T.

 

Personally the first time I ever heard the debut Fox album, I hated it, and gave it back to the guy who lent it to me, after playing only a few tracks from it.

I later bought Boys in heat on cassette and loved it, so gave the debut another shot, and it grew on me.

Then when I bought Bite down hard, I was totally blown away.

Not only did it rock much harder, but Tommy blew Deans vocals away.

 

As for Trixter, I love both albums, but I probably prefer the debut.

 

That said, if the vote was Britnys debut vs Hear, then Hear would certainly get my vote.

 

And on the subject of the sound on Hear, I cannot see why anyone would say its been recorded badly, as it sounds great to my ears!

Don't worry, mate, Jarred had obviously been on some wild drugs when he made that comment as he is clearly wrong. :)

    • KINGOFTHEHILL – ‘II’ (Second unreleased album FnA Records release) [2023] *Exclusive* BY VARIOUS SOURCES -- FEBRUARY 7, 2023     In 1990, KINGOFTHEHILL (KOTH) signed a major label record deal with SBK Records (a subsidiary of EMI Music). Scoring popular MTV Music videos for “I Do U” and “If I Say” and continuous touring throughout 1991 with White Lion, Trixter, Lynch Mob, Steelheart, Extreme, etc, KOTH were digging their heels in deep climbing the burgeoning walls of the life of Rock-n-Roll stars. Fast forward 2023, KOTH have reunited with all original members, lead singer Frankie Muriel, Jimmy Griffin (Guitar), Vito Bono (Drums), and George Postos (Bass), and inked a deal with FnA Records to release two albums. One of ’em, titled “II” contains tracks recorded 1991-92 that were slated to be on the band’s sophomore release, which never did happen as the music landscape changed almost overnight. KINGOFTHEHILL frontman Frankie Muriel says ““We are so excited for KINGOFTHEHILL to join the FnA Records family and finally have the opportunity to give the fans a chance to hear these long-bootlegged albums – after all these years the way they were intended to be; and to revisit the vault and release unheard material”. This St. Louis, Missouri-based four-piece hard rock outfit began life on the local club circuit as a covers band – Initially known as Broken Toyz, the band gradually introduced original material into their set, until the demand for their own songs allowed them to drop the cover versions entirely. They signed a recording contract in 1990, and, having adopted the name KingOfTheHill, recorded their self-titled debut with Bang Tango producer Howard Benson. The album mixed party metal in the grand Van Halen style with funk influences, while also touching on AOR, with vocal harmonies that echoed Bon Jovi. The opening single, ‘I Do U’, as well as the second single “If I Say”, had major rotation on MTV and crossed over to the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart. With major backing from their record label the band spent much of 1991 on the road touring with White Lion, Trixter, Lynch Mob and Steelheart in the USA, and received a rapturous reception as Extreme’s guests on their autumn UK tour. This, the band’s first live work outside their own country, served to sharpen their performing abilities, with the charismatic Muriel becoming the visual focus of the band, drawing comparisons to both David Lee Roth and Prince, not least for his multiple costume changes throughout each show. (contributors get the album today) Tracklist: 01 – Hands on You 02 – Save it for Yourself 03 – Coming Up 04 – Better U 05 – Tonite 06 – Lisa 07 – What Kind of Man 08 – What U See (Is What U Get) 09 – Mama 10 – Just A Little Bit 11 – This Love is Free Frankie Muriel (Vocals) Jimmy Griffin (Guitar) Vito Bono (Drums) George Postos (Bass)   BUY fnarecords.net/kingofthehill.html
    • Yeah, can’t say it crossed my mind at any point of the exercise. 
    • Tonight Belongs to the Young - Pretty Boy Floyd
    • Media Machine - Rob Rock.
    • Good thing ADV might not involve.
    • Sorry Karpet, I do that when I'm bored. It's just for fun. On facebook you can sometimes see comments like that. 
    • Van Halen-5150 is one of the last releases that comes to mind when thinking 1985-1995.
