Southgang "Tainted Angel" ; fillers on both debuts, but overall the Southgang has a few more killers.

Southgang "Group Therapy" ; much better album than decent Tyketto one, imo.

Forever Young ; by so many miles it's ridiculous. No comp.

Love Ain't Enough ; one of my all-time fave ballads.

Georgia Lights ; two crap songs and I guess this is the better of them.

Shoot Me Down ; 2 great songs but another of my literal all time faves.

Strength In Numbers ; tight, but I prefer this one.

Rescue Me ; this one by miles.

Water Under The Bridge ; neither of my faves, but definitely this one.

Culture Clash City ; love this one (2nd fave off the disc) and don't like the Tyketto one.

Misery ; 'Meet me in the night' is good, this is a pure classic. Perfect. One of my top 5 riffs of all time.

My Best Friend's Girl ; easy. Love this song, don't like the Tyketto one.

 

Overall, pretty even. I do definitely prefer Southgang. Even though their debut was a little patchy I just found them to be the far more consistent band, even if 'Wings' and 'Forever Young' are two of the best songs ever recorded.

 

Cool poll too. I dug it. :)

Tyketto on almost everything with Southgang getting my vote on a few songs from the 2nd releases.

 

Both are/were great bands of the era but to me Tyketto were a better band but Southgang were great too.

Cool thread!

A lot of these choices were extremely close for me....

 

~ Tyketto - "Don't Come Easy" .... I could go either way on this one really, tough call...

 

~ Tyketto - "Strength In Numbers"

 

~ Tyketto - "Forever Young" ....love both songs though

 

~ Southgang - "Love Ain't Enough" ...although "Standing Alone" is one of the best vocal performances that I've heard, I'm going with Southgang on this one... just like the "feel" of it a little more...

 

~ Tyketto - "Seasons"

 

~ Tyketto - "Burning Down Inside" .... while "Shoot Me Down" is a good song, "Burning Down Inside" is one of the best EVER!

 

~ Southgang - "Tug Of War" ...actually givin' the edge to Southgang on this one! Love this song...

 

~ Southgang - "Fire In Your Body"

 

~ Southgang - "Water Under the Bridge" .... two different types of songs, but I'll go with Southgang.

 

~ Tyketto - "Catch My Fall"

 

~ Tyketto - "Meet Me in the Night"

 

~ Southgang - "My Best Friend's Girl"

 

 

Very cool polls! Both are really good, underrated bands in their own right.

Southgang for albums. A better band with better songs although Vaughn is easily the better vocalist.

 

In the song department I went with Southgang EXCEPT for the following:

 

Forever Young

Standing Alone

Seasons

 

Very cool poll.

Wasn't even close for me. I went with Southgang all the way. I never cared much for Tyketto. "Tainted Angel" is still hands down one of the best cds to ever see the light of day in 1991.

So I guess you're one of the two freaks who voted for the song 'Tainted Angel' over 'Forever young'? How do you sleep at night? :P

 

Seriously, the rest is a mixed back and to each their own, but I can see no contest there. ;)

Yeah, Southgang pretty much blows 3rd tier Tyketto out of the water...why Tyketto is so popular in Europe is baffling to me...but they were nothing here in the U.S. *not that Southgang had a huge following..but they had a larger following or appreciation than Tyketto*

Diddn't Tyketto's "Don't Come Easy" sell over 250,000 copies?

If "Tainted Angel" sold more than that I'd be suprised.

I know they didn't go gold but they might of sold about the same.

 

And for the record I loved Southgang but for one Danny was/is a better vocalist than Jesse and to my ears anyway they had more great songs. But that's just my opinion.

Aim For The Heart was always one I was partial to! I'm a Southgang man myself, Tyketto never did much for me, sheeeiiiittt! Marvelous 3 was better then Tyketto! Vaughns a talent, but they just never wrote good songs outside the first 2 tracks on that debut, I'm hard pressed to remember any of their other songs!

"Don't Come Easy" is melodic rock perfection IMO.

I can't believe the haters of Tyketto around here.

Blue Tears is melodic rock perfection!!! I don't hear anything remotely similar in Tyketto, they made me waste money when I was in 8th grade, cause they played Wings on Kber, so I took my lawnmowing money down to buy it, cause I thought Wings was such a kick ass song, and Forever Young started and I thought OH SHIT! the second Wings ended it didnt do anything but go down hill, IMO, I was pissed, because I could only afford 1 cd, and I put Saints & Sinners back down, grabbed Tyketto and booked it to the cashier, when I finally got Saint & Sinners, I thought that was 100 times better then Tyketto, maybe it's just me, I can't help what I like and don't like, I just don't hear anything special, Ironically, Danny Vaughns one my favorite singers! strange huh?

That is strange to love Danny but think Tyketto is average.

And you're right you can't help what you like as I can't help what I like.

Where you think Tyketto is average I thought Blue Tears was good but nothing mindblowing.

I guess that's why we all have opinions. :beerbang:

I also thought Blue Tears was so-so, not magnificent like Tyketto. :blink:

Did you just use the word 'magnificent' to describe Tyketto and keep a straight face? Thazz sum funny shit, yo!

I also do it with it a straight face but I also know Mark that you think that Tyketto is just an average band.

I agree...I mean...Tyketto??!! hahaha

 

Someone mentioned something about two good songs on their debut....and I had to agree, I remember when I bought it...listened to it, and thought....this sucks donkey balls, except for one or two songs.

 

To each their own...but I seriously smile when I hear people praising 'Tyketto'.....

 

 

And Clutch...Southgang was 'bland'??!!! Did you even hear 'Group Therapy'??? Now...I don't know what type of music you generally prefer, but Southgang wasn't many things.....because they were at best 2nd tier *one above Tyketto*, but they certainly weren't 'bland'......

I agree, I'm not surprised everyone doesn't like all their songs, that is why we all have opinions and polls like this to discuss, but I am a little surprised at the amount of general dislike as well. Their debut didn't have a bad song on it IMO, aside from Lay Your Body Down which is not bad, just not a real favorite of mine. I can pretty much say the same for Strength In Numbers with Why Do You Cry being the non-favorite track.

 

Unfortunately I have never heard anything by Southgang but if they are being compared to Tyketto on some level I definitely want to find some of their music and give it a listen.

Your bias goes well beyond the musicality of Tyketto.......without Danny Vaughn you prolly would have never even gave them a first look!!! Let alone listen!!! LOL

 

But, it's casual...............you take your Tyketto and I'll take Southgang, and know that you're missin' out.... :)

    • idk guys, I think you can only polish a turd so much. It's definitely a great attempt and as whiplash1972 says, there have been a lot of such projects since, what, 2007ish? But IMO St. Anger has never been a bad album only because of the snare drum, or the lack of guitar solos, or the long songs. It's a bad album because it's an album full of bad songs. Metallica is supposed to be badass! This is not that! Listen to Invisible Kid or Purify and tell me what's even a little cool about those songs. The whole thing is just so whiny and cringey, definitely a product of its era which was the worst for metal as a genre.
    • Didn’t realise Def Leppard were a synthwave band, ‘cause these guys sound like ‘Hysteria’ era Def Leppard more than anything else I can think of. 😉 I was wondering the other day how many people miss out on good music because it is not under a label they desire. Very sad. 
    • Cold Blooded Bitch - Crown of Thorns
    • Don't forget there is a time different time zone from Australia to America.
    • Madison Talk of the Town Masquerade Roulette Might be missing.  
    • Nuff said. It's comments like these that are so helpful. Saved me 30 seconds clicking a YouTube like 😀
    • From Lions Pride Music: In the vibrant era of late ’80s and early ’90s, when Hard Rock ruled the charts and iconic bands were born in the lively streets of L.A., a lesser-known yet equally formidable force emerged from the heart of Germany – Wiesbaden to be precise. It was in this cultural backdrop that five talented musicians converged, forming a band that would redefine Melodic Hard Rock. Thus, SHEELA was born. Their creative hub was a basement rehearsal space in an old street house, which would later evolve into Markus Teske’s legendary BAZEMENT Studio. This studio would become the birthplace of several successful albums for bands like U.D.O., Vanden Plas, Dominci, The New Roses, and more. In 1995, SHEELA released their debut album, ”BURNED DOWN,” meticulously crafted and recorded at the BAZEMENT Studio. The album, showcasing a blend of powerful vocals, compelling guitar lines, and intricate arrangements, achieved instant success in Japan. Renowned magazines like BURRN and ROCK HARD recognized their potential, with the former awarding the album 87 points. ”BURNED DOWN” opens with the captivating ”LONG TIME,” a track featuring a memorable guitar line in the chorus. The album progresses through the anthemic ”READY” and the soulful ”HOLDIN’ ON,” leaving an indelible mark on the Hard Rock scene of the time. The success of the album paved the way for a tour and, later in 1995, personnel changes in the band.

The success of the album paved the way for a tour and, later in 1995, personnel changes in the band. Their second album, ”CHANGES,” dropped in 1997, again making waves in Japan before conquering European audiences during a tour with Canadian superstars SAGA. In the subsequent years, SHEELA shared stages with legendary acts like FATES WARNING, won the KARLSBERG CHALLENGE, and made a mark in the USA by performing at the STURGIS RALLY alongside bands like STYX and REO SPEEDWAGON. The journey continued with their third album, ”STRAIGHT HEARTED ONES” (2001), featuring guest musician Michael Sadler of SAGA. SHEELA toured extensively, opening for heavyweights like NAZARETH, MANFRED MAN, POISON, and even sharing the stage with Germany’s most successful Rockband – THE SCORPIONS. However, like any great rock story, SHEELA encountered lineup changes, and in 2002, Markus Teske bid farewell, leaving Christian Moser as the sole remaining member of the original lineup. Despite the changes, SHEELA’s impact endured, with discussions and online buzz surrounding their music even in 2018. Described as ”One of Germany’s secrets,” the timeless classics ”LONG TIME” and ”BURNED DOWN” continue to resonate with fans, prompting a resurgence in interest. In 2023, SHEELA signed a landmark deal with Lions Pride Music, a renowned record label based in Denmark. This collaboration brought forth a reissue of their debut album ”Burned Down,” remixed, remastered, and adorned with a new artwork. This worldwide release on CD and Digital platforms reintroduced the timeless magic of SHEELA to a global audience, reaffirming their status as pioneers of Melodic Hard Rock. SHEELA’s journey, marked by musical evolution, international recognition, and an enduring legacy, is a testament to the band’s commitment to creating timeless Hard Rock that transcends eras. As we look back at the album that started it all, ”BURNED DOWN,” SHEELA’s legacy lives on, leaving an indelible mark on the history of German rock. Sheela is: Wolfgang Ilsy Terne – Lead Vocals & Guitars Christian Moser – Guitars & Backing Vocals Markus Teske – Keyboards & Backing Vocals Tony Spagone – Bass & Backing Vocals Jojo Nimtz – Drums & Backing Vocals Special Guests: Patricia Loesch – Backing Vocals Martin Hofmann – Backing Vocals Robert Henrich – Harp Stefan Djokic – Slide Guitar Recorded in 1995 @ Bazement Studios, Wiesbaden, Germany 1995.

    • Edvard Munch's favourite band.
    • Debut album 'Portraits' out May 31.   From Art Of Melody Music / Burning Minds Music Group:   The band was founded a decade ago under the name ”Alex Mari & The Lovers”, with the aim of writing original material. Meanwhile, in order to create good chemistry between the members, the group began playing together on several live shows, performing cover songs of legendary international artists just like Queen, Toto, Police and AC/DC.   After few line-up changes, the band was finalized with three members: Alex Mari  (Michele Luppi Band, Barock Project, Ophiura, plus guest appearances as studio backing vocalist with Rhapsody of Fire) on vocals, Gianluca Pisana on drums and backing vocals, and Sebastiano Barbirato on guitar and backing vocals. For their debut album, they established their new identity with the name, Night Pleasure Hotel.   The first studio chapter of this very promising trio offers a perfect slice of classic American AOR, reminiscent of Survivor (Bickler era), Foreigner, Prism and Toto. The album features contributions from talented special guest stars –  Michele Luppi (Whitesnake), Luca Zabbini (Barock Project, PFM), Paolo Caridi (Ellefson-Soto, Reb Beach, Geoff Tate, Krell), Gianluca Tagliavini (PFM), Roberto Galli (Michele Luppi’s Heaven, Danger Zone, Wheels Of Fire) and Iarin Munari (Red Canzian, Roberto Vecchioni, Paolo Vallesi).   Night Pleasure Hotel are sure to become one of the best newcomers of the current melodic rock scene, thanks to their infectious sound, mixed and mastered by Roberto Priori (Danger Zone, Wheels Of Fire, Raintimes, StreetLore).   The release of ”Portraits” is scheduled for May 31, 2024 via Art Of Melody Music / Burning Minds Music Group. The CD booklet features introductory liner notes written by Samuele Mannini (Melodicrock.it), while cover art and CD graphics have been developed by Aeglos Art (Wheels Of Fire, Platens, StreetLore, Raintimes, Room Experience, Nightblaze).    The first single of the album, ”Just This Once”, will be launched with an official video on March 28, 2024.   Tracklist:   01. Niko 02. Just This Once 03. We Say Goodbye 04. Walking Through The Horizon 05. You And I 06. Sweet Melodies Of Rain 07. Shivers 08. What I Feel 09. Julia  10. Suddenly 11. For You 12.
