Cool line-up. I love Law And Order live. I was lucky enough to see them at The Ritz in NYC and Hammerjacks in Baltimore back in the 80's. Do whatever it takes to get to this show. :headbanger:

Well Nick... You've still got one on me with Adam Bomb. I don't suppose I'll ever see that one. Although I do have a very cool Adam Bomb DVD ( :beerbang: ) that will just have to do. I actually watched that DVD about 2 weeks ago.

What an awesome night!

It also brought back memories of seeing these bands at the old stomping grounds (STUDIO ONE, LaMOUR'S,CLUB BENE and my old home away from home, BIRCH HILL).

Looked around for Pete, but no luck..

By the time I got there, I missed CIRCLE OF INSANITY (Metal band that gets all these hard rock gigs) and most of CASHMIER, but from what I saw, They rocked.

Next up was LAW & ORDER. Looking like they raided JASON & THE SCORCHERS closet, they put on a great show. Shane now playing lead guitars as well..

XENON up next, I don't remember If I ever saw these guys live (The 80's/early 90's were a blur man). Melodic rock in the first order.Just a couple of changes. Two backup full figured wimin, and a very young keyboard player..I hope they record something new..

While looking for Pete, I caught up with Shane (Law & Order) and I was talkin' to him for a few. I told him about the shows I've seen them play, He seemed surprised.

Said my goodbye's and continued my jouney to find Pete. I noticed him at the bar and purposley bumped into him. He was there with the lovely Mrs Fry.

AMERICAN ANGEL started and what a set they played. Nothing from the 92 e.p., but a lot of the first L.P. They even did a cover of TOUCH TOO MUCH by AC/DC. I never seen them do a cover before and it was cool!!

Said my goodbye's to the Fry's and left with a shit eating grin.

I thought the night was a success and hopefully more bands of the genre will get to play the last stronghold of Rock clubs here in Jersey..

Sorry If I didn't put what songs they played, but I'm tired.

:agree: Cool, I hardly have to write anything now, Junky's review was spot on.

 

I was there for Circle of Insanity, and overall, the music was well played and tight as a mofo, these guys clearly rehearse a lot and it shows, they were totally on top of their game. The only thing that didn't really work for me was the vocals, which were kind of like a very flat Hetfield. Cashmier was energetic and entertaining, kind of like the bastard child of Manitoba's Wild Kingdom and the Romantics, if you can imagine such a thing.

 

For the other three bands, what Junky said, except I will add that Rocco's range still exists, the guy can seriously sing. Band sounded great, much better than the last time I saw them a couple years ago. Not sure if it's a permanent addition, but they now have Sean Tarr (TNA) on guitar. He's got some kickass backing vocals, and really overall the backing vocals were really great. Xenon... wow, they seriously had their shit together. As for Law and Order, a bit loosey-goosey for my tastes, almost like they weren't really sure what songs they were going to do and who was going to do what, but once they'd kick into a tune, it rocked, Shane's voice sounds just as good as back in the day.

 

Mrs. Fry really dug American Angel, whom she has been a fan of for quite some time, and also liked Xenon whom she had never heard before.

 

All in all, well worth a night out and a babysitter. Always cool seeing Junky too! :banger:

 

Will you sign one of my Moobie's?? :tits:

You didn't bring a sharpie... :(

    • I try to give albums a proper go before I write them off. Closest I would say would be cats In Space Atlantis. Narnia was SO good that my expectations were extremely high and the album was average on first couple of listens. I let it go for a few months, then came back to it with anopen mind and loved it. Otherwise I can probably pick songs. God Of Thunder I didn't like for many many years and eventually it grew on me.  
    • I left this comment on the promo for "Flames," and I feel like it applies to every song I've heard from this project so far, too:  "Great song, great singer, but I feel like the compression of the production takes away from the quality of the songwriting and puts a damper on Ken's playing."
    • Vain, yes it's one band i never really got into it. Just last week I spent about 30 mins listening to their most popular songs, I dont know what it is but the songs dont do much for me. But i do like one of their songs a lot 'No tears for you', and Whisper is pretty good too. And a few I do like to some degree, that's about it. 
    • Listening to it now (I know I'm late)... Some starter notes, that have no doubt been mentioned here already, but I didn't read through the whole thread: -Production is overdone. I don't know why, when Tobias Lindell had done such a masterful job mixing their last few records, he would do this?  -I've always liked H.E.A.T better with Kenny than with Erik. Not because I think Kenny is a better singer by any stretch (though I do think Kenny's voice is underrated when comparisons of the two inevitably arise), but for the same reason I prefer Danger Danger with Ted Poley to Paul Laine. Kenny's voice is, to me, part of the sound of H.E.A.T and I felt like it was missing the longer Erik was the vocalist with the band, even though 3/4 of the records they did with him were phenomenal. -For the first time, I feel like H.E.A.T doesn't know where they're going. On previous records, there was a distinct direction they were clearly striving for -- the original self-titled album and Freedom Rock were clearly products of their influences and the albums that followed with Erik Gronwall showed the growth and maturity of their playing, songwriting and the budding production skills of Jonah Tee. But I can't figure out if Force Majeure is meant to be a step forward or a step back. I wouldn't go so far as to say that any of the songs are bad, but there's not a single banger present here, as far as I'm concerned, which I was not expecting. -I also feel like this is the first time you can really hear Eric Rivers's absence since he left the band after Tearing Down the Walls. Into the Great Unknown being an anomaly altogether guitar wise and H.E.A.T II being a phenomenal return to the stage for Dave Dalone, Force Majeure is the first time I've really thought to myself, "Man, there could really be another guitar track here," which might be why they felt the need to compensate with the over-the-top production?   All in all, is it bad? No, I wouldn't go that far. But as far as H.E.A.T albums go, it falls extremely short of the ridiculously high standard they've set for themselves over the course of their career.   But hey, it's better than Into the Great Unknown.
    • Yeah, a few times. Unfortunately, it didn't live up to all the hype. 
    • Ok the title was clickbait, first dislike and then later like would be more accurate but hey, you clicked on the topic, so it worked! 😬
    • As a few others mentioned, musically it isn't too far off from their early material, but the song itself doesn't do much for me unfortunately.   In watching the video it looks like they've got a new drummer.
    • White Lion's Big Game was a massive letdown after Pride but over the years it's grown on me. Cinderella's Heartbreak Station was always way too bluesy and too far removed from the debut but again the quality of the songs sunk in after about 15 years. Spread Eagle's Open To The Public was a bit of a letdown compared to the debut but there's enough strong stuff on it once it gets under your skin to enjoy it. Whitesnake's Slip of the Tongue was another real letdown post 1987. Vai didn't do the songs any favours but again there's a pretty good collection of songs once I got over my disappointment. Anything by Harem Scarem after the debut. Still there best for me by a long shot but heaps of solid albums in the mix. Shotgun Messiahs 3rd industrial album. On first listen wtf but songs are fkn awesome. Same goes with  Wasp's KFD.
    • I've mentioned it before, but I wasn't in love with either Roxx Gang's 'Things you've never done before' or Vain's 'No Respect' when I first heard them. That was in the early stages, though. Vain's in one of my top 10 albums and I love the Roxx Gang one too, so things certainly changed.  Neither are exactly my favourite albums ever, but Cinderella's 'Heartbreak station' and Warrant's 'Ultraphobic' both took a long while for me to come around on. I actually returned the Cinderella CD when I bought that one, and only re-purchased it second hand many years later. Still don't love it, but dislike it less, lol.  To answer Karpetface's question, not to the degree of hatred, but back in the day when all I ever had were CDs and cassettes and once they were bought they were bought, I tended to give everything a lot more chances than I would today, where music consumption is the polar opposite. When I only had dozens, or up until it was a couple of hundred albums... the time to give something a chance again seemed to come around a lot more often than these days, when there's a million songs to choose from all the time. 
    • Now also the official video is out, recorded live in front of  large crowd in California.  This song seems to be a real grower. Was actually a bit disappointed after first 2 listens. But still played it few more times. And then it happened - when I was doing other things, without music, parts of song started playing in my head ;-).
