For me one that comes to mind is Queensryche - Hear In The Now Frontier

 

I heard the song "You" and thought kick ass, Queensryche is back! Bought the cd and it sucks IMO.

 

I'm sure there are more that will come to mind, but what are yours?

2 come to mind.

 

KISS- Psycho Circus

Bon Jovi- Keep The Faith

 

Ah, yes totally agree with Psycho Circus....the title song was the only good track on there for me.

Never owned a copy of Keep The Faith....now I don't feel too bad.

Crystol Pistol - loved that song Watch You Bleed, bought the disc without listening to the rest and just not my thing at all. Guys voice gets more annoying and whiney as the disc goes on. Too punk goth rock sounding (if there is such a thing) for my taste.

 

 

Wolfmother was another mistake. Liked that one song - liked it so much I can't even remember what it's called now :P boring boring

Absolute killer album! 'Teenage Parasite', 'XXII' and 'Salt of the Earth' are all top notch tracks!

These guys nail the sleaze-punk sound perfectly!

Maybe they do.. I guess it's the punk bit I don't like so much these days.

Hear In the Now Frontier from Queensryche. I really liked Sign Of The Times, but when I bought the full disc I was amazed at how far down one of my favorite bands had fallen of the path of good music. They are still in that downward spiral of crap music.

Leatherwolf - Hideaway ...... great track, so I bought s/t and Street Ready (mercifully very cheap) but not really my bag, all the rest seemed a bit too cliched.

Interesting pick! Personally I like those cd's overall. Maybe not a lot of stand out tracks compared to Hideway. Thunder is my favorite Leatherwolf tune and The Calling, Street Ready, The Way I Feel are a couple of other good Leatherwolf tracks.

 

At least you got them cheap!

Cavo's new one comes to mind. I only kept two tracks.

Good example. I only kept one track ("Champagne") myself.

Different strokes for different folks, I guess. I thought the rest of the album was perfectly serviceable, nothing really wrong with it, but didn't match the standards set by "Champagne." Plenty of superior modern rock bands out there. Hinder comes to mind... ;)

For me, it was Bon Jovi's "Crush". When I heard the then-new single "It's My Life" I thought, Bon Jovi is back! And getting back to their roots! So I rushed to the store and bought it. Unfortunately the rest of the album had nothing to do with this song (save "One Wild Night" and "Just Older" which are pretty good ones). Just mid tempo songs in the same vibe as "Destination Anywhere". Overall it is not a bad album, but not what I expected.

another random disc that comes to mind is House of Games... kinda got a modern Jaded Heart vibe...

the song Evil in Needle or something is awesome... the rest is solid.. but nothing like that song.

 

Well, looks like I won't be bidding on your auction, then. At least not that one.

I found it boring and monotonous, that's just my opinion.

 

Another disc that comes to mind is WHITE WOLF - Endangered Species outside of the tune "She" the rest of the disc is just good enough to become a coaster for by brewsky's on Friday night...and to think this was on my "want list" for years.

    • From FaceBook   Midnite City     · IT'S OFFICIAL! We have now started work on what will become our fourth album which will be coming your way in 2023. The songs are written and the work has begun. As with our previous albums, it's never a quick process. We have a long journey ahead of us, but the work starts now! Look out for lots of studio updates
    • This is a good one. The Deluxe Edition from MelodicRock Classics looks interesting. See below:  
    • New songs. From Frontiers: Frontiers Music Srl is thrilled to announce the upcoming release of Perfect Plan's third studio album, "Brace For Impact". Over the course of their first two albums, "All Rise" and "Time For A Miracle", the Swedes have quickly established themselves as a new gold standard in not only the Scandinavian melodic rock genre, but the melodic rock genre as a whole. "Brace For Impact" does nothing to slow that momentum and fans should do exactly as the album's title says in preparation for their latest opus.  Produced by the band, songwriting started in August 2021 for "Brace For Impact" and was wrapped up by the end of the year. The band then spent January of this year working on arrangements and pre-production work before starting the process of recording in the first week of February. Asked about the musical direction of the album, vocalist Kent Hilli says, "Well, hard question...we didn’t think too much about that when we started writing as we want everything to come naturally to us. All we focused on and wanted to do was to write really great melodic rock songs with great riffs and melodies. But I think we have more ”rockers” on this album than before. I would say that it's melodic rock in general, but maybe slightly harder than our previous albums. But much like our second album, ”Time For A Miracle” we have a great mixture between hard rock, melodic rock, and AOR in there...and some songs even have some elements of progressive rock and some bluesier elements mixed in also. And we have just one ballad on this album. Our goal when writing an album is that it should feel like playing songs on a jukebox and I think we have succeeded with that on this album. Everything sounds like PERFECT PLAN 3.0, really! I think we have definitely pushed everything up a notch from songwriting and lyrics to arrangements and overall performance and sound. With the addition of the great Tobias Lindell who does the mixing…everything sounds really big and majestic I think!" Sometimes the stars align and create a perfect balance of talent within a group. A band like Perfect Plan is the “perfect" (pun intended) example of that: a superb singer, a well-oiled band of experienced players, and a great songwriting talent with a knack for unforgettable melodies and driving rhythms. Add to that the right single released at the right time and Perfect Plan’s emergence as immediate rising stars on the melodic rock scene is no surprise. The song that “built” their reputation is of course the awesome “In and Out of Love,” the first single/video that kicked off the promotion of the band’s 2018 debut album “All Rise,” released on Frontiers in April of that year. The band followed their debut album with the sophomore release "Time For A Miracle" in 2020. Hyperbole aside, it was a major step forward across the board. Opting for a slightly heavier and more “in your face” sound, Perfect Plan matured and created an outstanding balance of melodies and energy, with the obvious references to the sound of the classics (think Foreigner, Survivor, The Storm, Giant, etc.) and Scandinavian AOR with a recognizable and personal feel. So, after a stunning debut and sticking the landing with their second album, what does Perfect Plan have up their sleeve for an encore? Well, all we can say is..."Brace For Impact”! Tracklisting: 1. Surrender 2. If Love Walks In 3. Can’t Let You Win 4. Gotta Slow Me Down 5. Stop The Bleed 6. My Angel 7. Devil’s Got The Blues 8. Bring Me A Doctor 9. Still Undefeated 10. Emelie 11. Walk Through Fire Line-Up: Kent Hilli - Lead vocals Rolf Nordström - Guitar Leif Ehlin - Keyboards Fredrik Forsberg - Drums Mats Byström - Bass   https://perfectplan.se facebook        
    • Hi,  You can buy the deluxe album here.  https://www.amazon.com/Vanity-Kills-Deluxe-All-Know/dp/B09XBMXPNT Or listen to the vanity kills album on Spotify:   New music wil be released in the near future!   
    • Baton Rogue Morgue - Massacre of St. Valentine's Day. Great track despite the clunky chorus. Solid album.    
    • I've just posted this "Grim Reaper" retrospective in another thread, but it should be here as well.    
    • "Grim Reaper" features this time. I don't know if he had this one in the works, but it's a nice tribute.    
    • I would have put Animalize as the middle feature piece as the album cover looks the most "blanketty"
    • My favorite guitarist of all time Rock In Peace  Eddie 🎸 
    • The full album's on YouTube.
