Wanted to do a challenge with Queensryche, and Helloween were the first competitors I thought of... :banger:

Ok as for the 90's I went for the less bad...

 

I couldn't go against Rage For Order one of the best albums on planet earth (Walls Of Jericho is still my favorite Helloween album but man we're talkin' about Rage For Order!!) or operation mindcrime one of the best concepts. I'm sure I'll be the only one voted for KOTSKII against Empire...

I voted for 'Rage for Order' and 'Mindcrime' and the rest were all Helloween.

The Deris era of Helloween is all incredible to me especially 'Better than Raw', 'Time of the Oath' and 'Dark Ride'.

The first 5 Queensryche albums were all great but after 'Empire' they've lost their way IMO.

Helloween has actually made better albums after dumping Kiske(even though the Keepers discs are legendary but the other two are rubbish) and hiring Deris away from PC69.

Ouch... tough one. Had to flip a coin between WALLS OF JERICHO and RAGE FOR ORDER cuz they're both so damn good... came up WALLS...

 

Queensryche's MINDCRIME and EMPIRE got the nod in those rounds and then it was all Helloween, all the time for the rest of the battles...

Unfortunately lost interest big time in both bands post 1990,up until then both bands were solid.The Keepers albums are classic and Kiske's voice was great.Saw Tate live' with QR a couple years ago and he was dealin'...the Ep and Mindcrime are gems to me.Never really cared for that Deris guy on vox.Ralf Scheepers almost ended up in Helloween at one point.

imo, it is pretty unfair to put Operation Mindcrime against Keeper 1; it should be Mincrime vs Keepers 1&2 and Empire vs Pink Bubbles(which is a good album, imo).

 

anyway, here are my votes:

 

1. Walls of Jericho (a tough one)

2. Operation Mindcrime

3. Empire(very tough one)

4. Master of the Rings(though i haven't heard Promised Land for ages)

5. the Dark Ride( never heard it, but Q2K was crap,imo)

6. rabbit Don't Come Easy

A Queensryche sweep for me too, although I haven't heard 'Rabbit Don't Come Easy' to compare with 'Tribe '.

While Rabbit is probably my least favorite Deris era Helloween disc is still is 10,000 times better then TRIBE.

    • His music videos are always good: either very silly, or very sexy. So I've got this queued up on the PC. Looking forward to it. 
    • New single "The Animal" dropped today, not bad at all:    
    • I dig the new tune!  Honestly, might be my favorite yet from these guys. I like that this kind of gets away from the  Bon Jovi Country vibe they sometimes had on the debut.  For me, this has a fresh, big sound to it.   Will have the new one on my radar.
    • 3rd single... Love It   
    • New video for 'Dance'.    
    • Vandenberg - Sin Chicago - The Chicago Story (2 CD) Megadeth - So Far, So Good, So What? (Expanded) The Allman Betts Band - Down to the River Mike Oldfield - Five Miles Out (Remaster) Buckingham & McVie - S/T Michael Hutchence - S/T Roxy Music - Stranded (Remaster) Echo & the Bunnymen - Reverberation  Echo & the Bunnymen - Evergreen (Expanded)
    • After releasing two albums with AOR/Melodic Rock band Streets, ”1st” (1983) and ”Crimes In Mind” (1985), lead singer and keyboardist Steve Walsh returned to Kansas, to revive the band along with original members Phil Ehart (drums) and Rich Williams (Guitar). Furthermore, the lineup was completed by the addition of bassist Billy Greer (from Streets) and young, promising, former Dixie Dregs guitar man Steve Morse, who also contributed with composing skills and backing vocals. Eventually, the group’s ”Power” album was released in November of 1986, rather much to the vintage Kansas and Prog Rock purists dismissal, as I recall it. The heavier sound/direction and absence of violinist Robby Steinhardt, songwriter/keyboardist/guitarist Kerry Livgren and bassist Dave Hope were all contributing factors to the disapproval, it seems. However, mentioned ”Power” should perhaps instead be judged on its own merits, as it is what it is. Put out in a time when commercial Melodic Hardrock was very much in fashion, with FM rock radio and MTV as ever the important ingredients of daily life. In the end, the album actually landed at a respectable No. 35 on the Billboard chart, while the single/ballad ”All I Wanted” eventually rose to an even more impressive No. 19.

    • They have a real knack for writing (and producing!) songs that could be featured in '80s coming of age films and I mean that in the most complimentary way possible. Really putting the retro in retrowave 
    • Gonna post this as just recently discovered them, and loving what they do. I know most here wont care due to not being their style or not singing in English, but as a Band Maid fan, this shit is right up my street. They are a South Korean band. Posting two songs. One original and one a cover (Maneskin, a band I dont really care about) which is kinda impressive seeing as the song is in Italian, a language they don't speak ha ha
