Sister Whiskey vs. Dillinger

Oh man, this is like comparing AIDS with rabies. I guess because rabies isn't lethal it's better than AIDS? I don't know how else to say it.

 

I sold Dillinger years ago and still haven't managed to get rid of Sister Whiskey, but not for lack of trying. To be honest, although I lean towards Sister Whiskey being the least terrible out of the two, I think there were actually a few decent songs on the Dillinger disc. So I'll say that while they are both, imo, terrible, Dillinger probably had a few better songs.

I tend to agree with Geoff here in saying neither of them IMO are really any good in their field :whistle:

Just dug up my review on Dillinger:

Damn Yankees and Danny Wilde fans will appreciate this one. There are some god-awful tracks and I usually hate a disc like this on site, but this actually has some nice AOR ballads. Check out the more melodic tracks like 'Can it be love', 'Captain of My Life' 'Bad Love', 'Die For You' and 'Nothing (Without You)'. I don't love this disc, but it's stayed in my collection when many others have gone. To be honest, this has better songs than Damn Yankees, IMO - that's how average I find that disc!

 

I knew I did actually like a few tracks off it. Obviously not enough to keep from eventually selling it, though. :lol: But I do remember now, they had a stack of decent ballads on the disc. A hell of a lot more than I can say for Sister Whiskey.

Dillinger is by far the better of the two imo. I used to own Dillinger at one point in time, but I never felt the need to ever purchase Sister Whiskey. That bluesy style hard rock is very hard to pull off. Dillinger's saving grace was that they did do a couple of solid ballads on the disc. I can't even name one Sister Whiskey track though.

:agree: Could not agree more......You have either got it in you to be able to do it, or you don't and in my opinion, neither of these bands have got it in them.

    • 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'.

    • 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
