Recommended Posts

I've had this cd for years. seems whenever i've listened to it in the past is has been kind of background noise. today I took a really good listen to it and wow, what a good album. not quite as good as Holy Water but pretty close. if you don't have this one i'd say if you find it get it, is is worth the price.

Yeah I love this album! I agree, although very similar to Holy Water it's not quite as good. Still some excellent tracks on an underrated album.

All 4 of the Howe era discs are excellent. I love 'Fame And Fortune' the most, but no denying they all have excellent songs on them.

 

If you listen to the Rogers era and Howe/Hart era's in a completely different mindset and treat them as seperate bands, which stylewise, they are really, then the quality of these 4 discs really shine imo.

Dangerous Age was probably the first release I heard of Bad Company. That album really got me into the group. Later on I discovered Rodgers´ version of the band and I must point out that I like them both. Maybe Howe's lineup takes the upper hand. By a small margin. Not sure about the Hart era though.

 

As a matter of fact, a couple of days ago I thought about making a poll about just this. Rodgers versus Howe. Then this thread surfaced...

yeah, i like them both too but since Mick Jones produced the Fame & Fortune it had a kinda Foreigner sound to it.

I agree about treating them like 2 different bands, just like I do with Van Halen. Love them both, but they really are like 2 different bands.

Got this and Holy Water in the summer of 2015 and played the shxt out of them. Depends on my mood sometimes the songs on those albums seem kind of ''basic'' or ''boring'' but when played at the right moment...... just perfect. Love the smooth vocals and big production

I owned the 'Dangerous Age' and 'Here Comes Trouble' albums for years. I remember liking both, considering them both good albums... but they just didn't hold my attention in the long run and I sold them at one point.

 

I'd actually like to hear these again, maybe bring back some memories. I wonder why I never tried 'Holy Water' back in the day? I'd be curious to hear all three again (and for the first time). I'm sure I'll have CDRs somewhere from when I sold them...

    • Edvard Munch's favourite band.
    • Debut album 'Portraits' out May 31.   From Art Of Melody Music / Burning Minds Music Group:   The band was founded a decade ago under the name ”Alex Mari & The Lovers”, with the aim of writing original material. Meanwhile, in order to create good chemistry between the members, the group began playing together on several live shows, performing cover songs of legendary international artists just like Queen, Toto, Police and AC/DC.   After few line-up changes, the band was finalized with three members: Alex Mari  (Michele Luppi Band, Barock Project, Ophiura, plus guest appearances as studio backing vocalist with Rhapsody of Fire) on vocals, Gianluca Pisana on drums and backing vocals, and Sebastiano Barbirato on guitar and backing vocals. For their debut album, they established their new identity with the name, Night Pleasure Hotel.   The first studio chapter of this very promising trio offers a perfect slice of classic American AOR, reminiscent of Survivor (Bickler era), Foreigner, Prism and Toto. The album features contributions from talented special guest stars –  Michele Luppi (Whitesnake), Luca Zabbini (Barock Project, PFM), Paolo Caridi (Ellefson-Soto, Reb Beach, Geoff Tate, Krell), Gianluca Tagliavini (PFM), Roberto Galli (Michele Luppi’s Heaven, Danger Zone, Wheels Of Fire) and Iarin Munari (Red Canzian, Roberto Vecchioni, Paolo Vallesi).   Night Pleasure Hotel are sure to become one of the best newcomers of the current melodic rock scene, thanks to their infectious sound, mixed and mastered by Roberto Priori (Danger Zone, Wheels Of Fire, Raintimes, StreetLore).   The release of ”Portraits” is scheduled for May 31, 2024 via Art Of Melody Music / Burning Minds Music Group. The CD booklet features introductory liner notes written by Samuele Mannini (Melodicrock.it), while cover art and CD graphics have been developed by Aeglos Art (Wheels Of Fire, Platens, StreetLore, Raintimes, Room Experience, Nightblaze).    The first single of the album, ”Just This Once”, will be launched with an official video on March 28, 2024.   Tracklist:   01. Niko 02. Just This Once 03. We Say Goodbye 04. Walking Through The Horizon 05. You And I 06. Sweet Melodies Of Rain 07. Shivers 08. What I Feel 09. Julia  10. Suddenly 11. For You 12. Quella Sera (Bonus Track)   Night Pleasure Hotel is:   Alex Mari: Lead Vocals, Backing Vocals, Bass, Guitar, Keyboards Sebastiano Barbirato: Guitar, Bass, Backing vocals Gianluca Pisana: Drums, Piano, Backing Vocals
    • Queen Shrike = Queensryche 👍
    • and the new Gunship cd maybe not so much AOR but damn good stuff
    • I've enjoyed pretty much all of their output thus far..inc this  
    • First I've heard of these guys.  A bit of a Danny Wilde vibe on vocals for me.  I like it.
    • New song 'Give The Night Away'.    
    • I can't remember the ins and outs of it, but last year he put up a tweet about how anyone who does cover songs is unoriginal and have no talent, and he would rather listen to the original. I have no issue with the second part of his statement as that is all down to personal taste, but for him to call out bands as unoriginal and lacking talent when bands he listens to have done covers is quite laughable. Every time he posts shit like that I reply and he always ignores me as he knows he is chatting shit. He does it with wrestling as well. Called someone out for instulting a woman wrestler, and saying it's unacceptable to insult wrestlers like that. Pointed out he always calls Brock Lesnar a gorilla and he he should practice what he preaches .. ignored again As I say, always has to pretend he knows everything, but always gets caught out.
