The best without a doubt is the smokin' version by Talisman from the Genisis album of :bowdown: Bad Company's classic, Run With The Pack....

The three bonus tracks off the Jekyll And Hyde - Heavenly Creatures album, Best Of Me, Justify and I'll Find A Way are also great tracks.

"A Love and a Fiction" - Pretty Maids(off the jap version of Spooked)

Couldn't have said it better myself. Best bonus track EVER.

 

Also, 'Save one' from Story of the Year's 'Black swan' is essential.

 

And I envy those bastards who got the bonus track on Steelhouse Lane's 'Slave to the new world'.

In The Arms by Bon Jovi is considered a bonus track since it appears on the Australian & Japanese only pressings of the Keep The Faith CD & what a corker of a track this is!!!

:beerbang:

 

The 2 bonus tracks on Empire - Cry appearing on the Japanese pressings really lift that cd to another level.

 

The bonus track on the Japanese presing of Hardline's Double Eclipse is another standout!

As Tim(2) has already mentioned a few times the track "I will be loving you" by Planet 3 is only available on the Japan release "A Heart from the big Machine" and not on their standard release "Music from the Planet".

Definitely agree with the Pretty Maids track!

 

some others I would add -

 

On the modern side of things -

 

All the bonus tracks off 'The Black Swan' (Story Of The Year) are awesome....Geoff mentioned 'Save One' which is nice ballad, but to be honest 'Virus', 'Turn Up The Radio' and 'The Truth Will Set You Free' all completely murder that track.

 

The bonus tracks off Hinder's 'Take It To The Limit' are all awesome too and arguably as good as anything on the album......i'd mention 'One Night Stand' and 'Live For Today'

 

On the same note most of Daughtry's bonus tracks attaching to this year's 'Leave This Town' are basically better than anything on the actual album....namely 'Traffic Light' and 'One Last Chance' ...both stunning modern rock.

 

The bonus tracks attaching to Shinedown's 'The Sound Of Madness' are all great too...esp 'The Energy'.

 

The bonus track on Disciple's 'Scars Remain' is great too...'No End At All'

 

& now on the MHR front -

 

The bonus tracks off Gotthard's Lipservice are essential 'Cant Stop' & 'Nobody Home' are well worth tracking down

 

The Jap bonus track on Journey's 'Trial By Fire' called 'I Can See It In Your Eyes' is nothing short of stunning and is easily better than any track on the album!

 

Brother Firetribe's bonus track cover versions of 'Mighty Wings' & 'Hungry For Heaven' are both excellent

 

Millenium's bonus track on 'Hourglass' is a great cover version of 'Jane'

 

HEAT's re-issue of their debut includes the excellent '1,000 miles'

 

(& I still want to hear that Steelhouse Lane song :crying: )

 

Cheers

Can you foreigners confirm this? Is this true? Do most you guys not have 'In these arms' on your version of 'Keep the faith'? If so, that is criminal. Easily the best song on the disc.

In fact, from my understanding the Jap versions two bonus tracks were Save a prayer (which was on the Euro version as well) and Starting all over again (which was a single b-side and later on the box set).

In these arms was on all releases.

It was even released as a single!

Yep, that's what I thought. I have the video with all the singles (including that) which was obviously made in the US. Sometimes I think Andre's world is separate to ours. ;)

STARTIN ALL OVER AGAIN is what I meant!!! lol

Ah... really? That's another killer song. I was reading a Bon Jovi quote book the other day and I saw that even back then in the day Jon hated 'Women in love' and 'A little bit of soul' and he wished they'd been left off the album. That made me appreciate his good taste back in 1993.

W.A.S.P.'s bonus tracks are always great

 

Truth. Some of my faves are "Flesh & Fire" (from the "9.5-N.A.S.T.Y." single), their cover of Jethro Tull's "Locomotive Breath" (B-side to the MEAN MAN single) and "Phantoms in the Mirror" (from the CHAINSAW CHARLIE CD single)

Wow, two killer tracks there. Two of my faves on the disc, in fact. Does the Aussie version of 'Keep the faith' ever fetch anything decent on ebay?

    • Interesting what bands catch on this forum and the ones that don't. To me, this is a pretty good band and I'm a bit surprised, on a forum where bands like Shiraz Lane and Bad City are appreciated, there seems to be no interest in these guys. Good band that does, for whatever reason, remind me of the likes of the aforementioned Bad City.  There's a bit of hit and miss about the debut and it's far from perfect, but a pretty cool band worthy of mention and interest on a forum such as this.  Anyway, this was one of my favourites of the album- For die-hards, I stumbled across this non-album track.  
    • New video for 'I Will Be Stronger' feat. Joel Hoekstra.    
    • Very nice piece of modern rock on offer here. Lot to like on this one.  Fame on Fire     -    Welcome to the Chaos 1    .    Intro 2    .    Welcome to the Chaos (feat. Spencer Charnas of Ice Nine Kills) 3    .    Ketamine 4    .    Cut Throat 5    .    Emo Shit (feat. Kody Lavigne) 6    .    Lost In Doubt 7    .    Robbery 8    .    Signs 9    .    Plastic Heart 10    .    Rotting Away 11    .    Back Then 12    .    Jaded 13    .    Dead or Alive      
    • Welcome, album of the year? Love this project with vigour. I snuck 'Saturday' on the playlist I put on with the kids in the car, lol. Can't wait to hear any of the songs I haven't already heard and showered in love from this. 
    • Did anyone notice these guys released another new album?  As expected, it's pretty weak and more proof of their solid decline.  HOWEVER!  There is actually a good song on it. It's only one, but I kind of clapped and cheered when I heard this. I used to love these guys so much, and still love the albums I always loved from these guys but it's been some barren years. It was good to hear them do what they used to do with great ease.      
    • Couple of okay songs, but otherwise as expected above. No surprises, exactly what you'd expect from these guys in 2022.     
    • Not every song is a hit, but another pretty decent one mini-album. I like some of the gear on this one.  Villain of the Story     -    Divided 1    .    Never Again 2    .    Jester 3    .    Karma 4    .    Under My Skin 5    .    Losing Control 6    .    Wrong 7    .    Don't Go 8    .    Divided    
    • Not sure if folk know, but they got back together and released an EP this year. Anberlin     -    Silverline 1    .    Two Graves 2    .    Nothing Lost 3    .    Body Language 4    .    Asking 5    .    Circles It's not amazing, but I do really like this song from it-  
    • Not an amazing album, but pretty solid with a couple of very nice tunes-     They have a very comprehensive youtube channel for anyone unsure and wanting to give everything a listen- https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYECJVZLOQebjAuj_HMKLjg  
    • Credit must be given where it's due, and I do like the effort put into this one. To be frank, I thought the first 5 songs were pretty shit. All the while I was listening, wondering what became of these guys. The most frustrating song of those first few is 'Eternal.' I wrote in my little ratings thing that it almost sounds to me like these guys are trying to sound bad because, otherwise, this is a pretty good song. But it's just done poorly.  Anyway, I want to be fair to these guys and I have to say, that from song 6 the mood in the room seems to lift and they start to give it a fair crack. They drop the mopey post-grunge blandom and have a crack at some decent melodic type of rock. Spoiler alert - I don't actually think there's a keeper track on the album, but holy shit they get close.  'Temples,' 'Alive,' 'Heaven Knows' and 'Someone's watching over me' are all, four in a row, good, strong songs. And then 'Love Is The Only Place' hits and I was taken aback. Unfortunately, they're not the band they used to be and I am 100% convinced they couldn't hit the heights of the debut even if they did everything possible to try... but goodness do they get close with this track. A bit of polish and finesse and this one wouldn't be a bad stab at what they did so well on their debut.  Sadly, the album's worst song follows in 'The Undertaker' - what a piece of shit, lol. Really grates me because this is the discussion point I've had with christians that aggravates me the most, and it's in a song, so naturally I hate it. And then 'Afterlife' isn't amazing, but pretty decent. Before the album finishes on a high, with one of the best songs on the album with a nice hook - 'Strange New World.' So overall, like I say, credit where it's due. After the first few songs I was close to closing up shop and calling this a pass, but thankfully, they took me on a ride and it was pretty cool. They're a dim shadow of the band they used to be, to be totally fair, but I like that they showed a bit of fight with this album. Better than expected.
