My friend was playing a song that somehow got by me, Skull, the song was Eyes Of A Stranger, what a phenomenal song, I am assuming this is the lead off and key song to probably not the greatest of discs! but the song itself kicked fucking ass! I guess whats his name is the guitarist, but the vocalist, fucking unique and awasome! anybody got 2 cents they want to pitch in?

The guitarist is Bob Kulick, brother of Bruce. The CD was called No Bones About It.

'No Bones About It' is a great disc. 'Little Black Book' 'Head Over Heels' and 'Eyes Of A Stranger' are top tunes and the rest of the disc is pretty stellar too. I snagged a Jap copy a good few years back and relly glad I did, as it is definitely well worth tracking down a copy if you can find one. I checked on ebay and there is one but not cheap, although pretty damned rare on Jap version now.

 

The Japanese cover is alot better than the other version aswell.

I should put this one on my want list... very good CD but sadly I only have the MP3s.

I remember when this came out, as I was working for the distributor at the time.

Funnily though, I didnt pick it up til years later.

Problem was, when you work for the company that distributed pretty much all the UK indy labels, and dealt with imports from major labels as well, there was too much choice, so lots of stuff fell by the wayside.

I just really like the vocalist, what a unique sound he has, almost like he sings with a lisp, but he learned how to inegrate it into singing and it really works, anybody else picked up on that?

Yep a good album. Thought this was fairly common.

Used to be... haven't seen it for years though. :(

There's a copy or two at Amazon.de from sellers around £16 inc postage, for one of 'em.

Plus Gemm has one at $20

    • New song 'Fans Of The Dark'.    
    • Shadows of Yesterday - Vinnie Moore
    • Sorry, that wasn't really what I meant. What I was really going for is that the songs on other albums seem to me to have more of a similar feel to them, like you can tell the songs for Freedom Rock were pretty much all written at the same time. I'm not saying that the songs on Force Majeure don't sound like H.E.A.T (even though I maintain it's not as good, based on the first few spins, as their previous efforts), but that they sound, to me, more "scatterbrained" than the selections from other records. That's not an easy thing to explain, but "direction" was the best word I could think of.    Again, I probably could explained my point better. I wasn't advocating for more guitars so much, but for more variety in the guitars we get. One of the best things for me about the first two H.E.A.T albums (less so for Address the Nation, but still there) was the subtle trade-offs between Dalone and Rivers and the solos that switched between them (good examples of this include the guitar work on "Late Night Lady," "Danger Road" and "Tonight," off the top of my head). Simply because Dalone and Rivers played different set ups and had some variance in tone, you could tell the difference between their playing (though admittedly there were times where Eric Rivers was completely underutilized and overshadowed). Because of the the combination of this record's production and the guitars being all Dave, you don't have as much of that, and that's what I was trying to convey.
    • Agree it reminds of earlier material, but I'm much less of a "Hang Tough" guy and much more of a "What A Shame" kind of guy.
    • Skid Row Nelson Steel Panther Harem Scarem WASP Van Hagar Saliva Joey Tempest Michael Sweet White Lion Mr. Big ... are the easy ones for me. Possibly Warrant as well come to think of it. Some other popular ones listed taht I don't agree with would be Slaughter - 2nd album pipped it GNR - always preferred either UYI albums Tuff - really only had 1 1/2 albums so don't count    
    • and the lyrics tick tock time to rock don't make you cringe?? if it was 1986 and I was 16 it might have been just passable but now, no. 
    • Another release that seems to have been completely overlooked here on HH... check out those vids for "Give It Up" and "Love Will Not Let You Down". I swear both tunes sound like something you'd hear from AdrianGale!  Compassion | Akiba Music (bandcamp.com)  
    • I might stone thrown at me, but hear some Scorpions.
    • "One Voice", which is a demo, is the only one I hear the tape "hiss" on...
    • Is that cassette tape hiss I hear at the start of the song? Is the whole album like that or only the demo tracks?
