Um, so I kinda like that Nick Lachey album. Some good Modern Rock (lite) on that - with the usual Max Martin/Andreas Carlsson etc, writing all the songs. :anon:

 

Anyway, as you were...

Not that it's that far out of our genre as to me anyway their just a rock n roll band but my guilty pleasure would be Pearl Jam. I know I'm supposed to hate them and all since they supposedly single handely ruined our fav music but I think they are a great rock n roll band with a good singer that writes great lyrics and guitar player(Mike McCready) who can flat out play.

 

Also I really liked Creed on their first two albums, especially the first one.

Of course they have now reunited and are working on a new album but I still prefer the awesome Alter Bridge to Creed.

Not really...but I've been known to listen to Tom Petty on occasion.....does that count..?

 

Nothing wrong with Tom Petty IMO as I have his Greatest Hits and every tune is great.

 

I also have Steve Miller Band's greatest hits, both The Eagles greatest hits, and The Cars debut that would probably fit into guilty pleasures but I haven't listened to any of these discs for many years.

I have a wide variety of musical tastes from Tool and Rage Against The Machine to classic stuff like Springsteen and The Eagles. I also like some of Eminem's stuff and some Marilyn Manson. I also love ambient jazz. Not the big band stuff but alot of the newer stuff.

I used to play Manson quite a bit and still have his first four releases up through 'Mechanical Animals'. :tumbsup:

Ya know what, I have no guilty secrets as I have never been embarassed by any band or song that I like.

It doesnt matter to me how cheesy or non-credible an artist is, if I like it, I dont care who knows.

 

I have songs on my MP3 player by pretty much anybody and everything.

Granted, if I hate a band, its highly unlikely they will put in appearance (Coldplay, REM etc), but theres artists out there that I might like a single song by, even though its probably a band or artists I normally dislike material by.

 

The minute you start being embarassed about like something, is the minute you start giving too much of a damn about what other people think and not what matters.

I think there are only about 4 groups in my collection I am truly embarrassed about:

 

Busted ; horrible teeny pop rock but I'll be f*cked if there are not some really, really catchy, big hooks and melodies here. I want to get them out of my collection and I do barely listen to them... but there are some genuinely nice moments on these 2 discs.

 

BB Mak ; more pop rock, almost so light some put up the boy band argument. The vocal harmonies here and some of these songs... very nice stuff. Not all great, but I like their 2nd CD.

 

Invertigo ; again, pop rock but it's almost got a "dancey" kind of vibe. Again, some truly excellent melodies and gigantic hooks, but not exactly a CD I'm proud of owning.

 

The Darkness ; In my defence, this debut has been on my sale/trade list forever. I truly despise this band but needed to hear what it was all about. Bought it for about $2 and there is nothing even remotely redeeming about it aside from that one song, 'Growing on me', which I do really like.

Yeah I have those 3 as well but I don't listen to them either.....the Cars sound really dated but the Eagles and Steve M are still listenable....

    • I think that is why the last 2 Nordic Union albums have flopped. The first album was probably 50/50.
    • Standard Frontiers approach. Take a bunch of demos written by one of their go-to songwriters, polish them up, get a popular name to sing on them and call it an album. Or, even more dishonestly, a "band."
    • OK, but ultimately boring. No wow factor and they played a bunch of songs I didn't know despite being billed as playing the debut. hey ho. 
    • Folk, Prog, AORish.... however you wanna categorize them, these are some of the best vocal harmonies I've heard in forever. Lots of comparisons to Crosby, Stills & Nash in the YT comments Figure this should appeal to some here....           “Troika“, combining the immense talents of Nick D’Virgilio (Big Big Train), Neal Morse (Transatlantic) and Ross Jennings (Haken), initially began with Morse writing some acoustic songs he thought would be enhanced by strong vocal harmonies. After reuniting with former Spock’s Beard bandmate Nick D’Virgilio, the duo specifically sought out Jennings to complete the trio (all of whom contributed material to the project). Recorded during lockdown, D’VIRGILIO, MORSE & JENNINGS delivers melodic acoustic-filled anthems, charged rockers and sensitive ballads – all part of the mix – and the unique blend of the three voices and styles have created an album in which you will encounter these musicians in a way you’ve never heard before. Are you a fan of acoustic rock from the ‘70s with a touch of classic rock thrown in? If so, you’re going to absolutely love ”Troika”. This mostly-acoustic rock offering spends the first half bathing you in Crosby, Stills, and Nash-like acoustic pop rock full of fabulous multi-part lead vocal harmonies while the second half throws in some Hendrix meets Styx meets Foreigner classic rock to up the attitude. It’s such a fine record that the masses need to hear, and while the super-group last name approach will work fine for prog rock diehards, it just doesn’t roll off the tongue for the people who will really enjoy this record the most – regular lovers of vocal harmony-rich classic rock. Heck, even calling the band Troika would have been simpler. This is one of those delightful albums that has soothing melodic wonders and ripping, ‘70s-vibe classic rock tunes, and there truly isn’t a weak link in the 12-song collection. If you’re one of those people complaining that they just aren’t making great rock albums like they used to, you’ll want to grab a copy of this CD as soon as it’s released. Highly Recommended   01 – Everything I Am 02 – Julia 03 – You Set My Soul on Fire 04 – One Time Less 05 – Another Trip Around the Sun 06 – A Change Is Gonna Come 07 – If I Could 08 – King for a Day 09 – Second Hand Sons 10 – My Guardian 11 – What You Leave Behind 12 – Julia (Alternative Version) [Bonus Track] Nick D’Virgilio (Big Big Train) – vocals, drums Neal Morse (Transatlantic) vocals, keys, bass, guitars Ross Jennings (Haken) vocals, guitar
    • "Down to the Devil" is quite catchy. Shame this is only available on VINYL and as a digital download as far as I can tell... 
    • Sad isn't it. Listened to Sultans last night. That was so good.  This still sounds like 1 endless song with different words. A travesty and a waste.
    • The Needle Lies-Queensryche
    • Yeah such a mark up from them on certain things recently...the Devils Train & Madhouse cds where up in the region too...unreal   it cost £15odd direct from record company...with VAT & postage.
