2010 - Favorite Disc


Recommended Posts

Four months into the year and there have been an unbelievable amount of new discs released that are top quality. Picking a fav for 2010 is gonna be near impossible.

 

Any of my top four could easily be interchangable.

If I had to make a choice right now it'd go something like this:

 

1. Crashdiet - Generation Wild

2. Crazy Lixx - New Religion

3. Pretty Maids - Pandemonium(this could finish at #1)

4. Ratt - Infestation

5. Keel - Streets of Rock N Roll

6. Wig Wam - Non Stop Rock N Roll

7. Jet Red - Flight Plan(Usually don't put a reissue or old recording being issued in my best of list but damn this is excellent Melodic Hard Rock)

8. Treat - Coup De Grace

9. Slash - S/T

10. Armored Saint - La Raza

11. Scorpions - Sting in the Tail

12. Krokus - Hoodoo

13. Giant - Promised Land

14. Raven - Walk Through Fire

 

There's some others that I think I'm leaving out but I can't remember for sure.

There's also others coming out later this year and some that I still haven't heard yet that I expect to make this list like Y&T, Bombay Black, FarCry, Talon, Tango Down(w/David Reece), Avantasia, Jon Oliva's Pain, Overkill, Circle II Cirle, Masterplan.

Impossible to make any kind of call this early. So far Raven, Scorps and Ratt have all impressed. Don't forget Maiden's new one comes out in August!!!

A pretty poor year for new releases so far. Sure stuff like Giant/Reckless Love/Wig Wam etc is all good, but nothing spectacular by any means. The best releases are below IMO, with Treat and Bleeding Through being utterly awesome, though I'm pretty convinced that stuff like As I Lay Dying/Sonic Syndicate/H.E.A.T will all be good judging by the soundbytes.

 

TREAT - A Coup De Grace

OVERKILL - Ironbound

BLEEDING THROUGH - S/T

STORY OF THE YEAR - The Constant

I knew I missed a few. Here's my correct lists as it stands:

 

1 . Treat - Coup de grace

2 . Crazy Lixx - New religion

3 . Crashdiet - Generation wild

4 . Pretty Maids - Pandemonium

5 . Reckless Love - s/t

6 . Ratt - Infestation

7 . Loveblast - s/t

8 . Taking Dawn - Time to burn

9 . Shylock - Rock buster

10 . Axident Avenue - Shaken and disturbed

 

and

 

1 . Story of the Year - The Constant

2 . Bullet For My Valentine - Fever

3 . Lifehouse - Smoke and mirrors

4 . Before Their Eyes - Untouchable

5 . Destine - Lightspeed

 

One thing I must disgree with you on, Tim, is that it's a poor year so far. I can say that my top 3 this year is probably the strongest top 3 I have had for as many years as I can think back. Three amazing releases, and with HEAT yet to come I dare say the top 5 this year will be absolutely amazing.

But that depends on your tastes. You like the Sleeze stuff and those 80's style-Hard Rock bands (like Ratt) that are still flogging the same dead-horse they did 25 years ago, whereas I like the more Melodic Rock-type stuff. Nothing much happening in that genre, outside the mighty TREAT disc...

Have purchased alot of CD's this year so far but the only one which has been a new 2010 release was the Blindside Blues Band - Raised On Rock which pretty much sums up what I think about the current music situation.

Wicked Sensation will be the next new 2010 purchase and there is nothing else on the radar that even has me interested in any way whatsoever :unsure:

Stage Dolls - Always

 

 

That one must be the grower of the year if it's good enough to be listed in your best albums of 2010. I heard it once and it sounded packed full of fillers...

A couple of tracks I am not that keen on, but it is a solid disc for sure for me. I have a feeling it will be a mid table finisher come years end and not near the top.

Nah, guys. Way too early to even contemplate trying to separate these awesome releases.

 

Some of the newies Ive only listened to a few times. Needs more time. Already there are 3 or 4 releases vying for top spot and there's a whole bunch to come yet.

Reckless Love is one I still haven't heard as I can only find it for $22 and won't spend that much for it.

I had forgotten all about the Maiden so yeah that'll probably be up at top of my list most likely.

Yeah but don't get too caught up on labels, mate. Look at Jez's list. Pretty sure he likes "sleaze" metal as much as you. The fact is, Crashdiet and Crazy Lixx really aren't any less melodic than Treat at all. Call them "sleaze" if you must, but to me Treat, Crazy Lixx and Crashdiet are still in a 3 way battle for album of the year (so far). Every time I hear Crashdiet or Crazy Lixx I always have to ask, is Treat really better than this? How is that possible?! :)

I'd add Pretty Maids into the mix too....the first 6 songs on that album are fantastic. Are rest arent too shabby either

    • So I'm currently on my summer hols which gives me time to catch up on alot of music I have missed or haven't listened to in a while. Anyway yesterday I was listening to Broadside - Hotel Bleu ( great album btw). Now I have Spotify set to play similar artists once the album finishes and Honey Revenge were one of those artists. Liked the song I heard so checked out their debut album Retrovision and it's a cracker. The duo are Devin Papadol- vocals and Devin Lloyd - guitar and together have produced and album full of perfect pop rock. Highly Recommended and well worth a listen.   Full album ...  
    • So, I'll ask again, but what's the go here mate? Are they your lyrics?  Do you type in a specific genre and instrument combination? What about the melody? I should check it out myself when I have time, but I'm very curious. 
    • Nice, they love "Tiger Tiger" in Japan.  
    • VIXEN Announces New Singer ROSA LARICCHIUTA June 21, 2024 VIXEN has recruited Rosa Laricchiuta(TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA, HEADPINS),as the band's new lead singer following the recent departure of Lorraine Lewis. Laricchiuta made her live debut with VIXEN earlier tonight (Friday, June 21) at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California alongside GREAT WHITE, SLAUGHTER and QUIET RIOT.   Laricchiuta is a singer, songwriter, and performer from Montreal, Quebec. After several years cutting her teeth with live shows, she auditioned for the third season (2015) of "La Voix", Quebec's version of the popular TV show "The Voice". Rosa had an instant connection with the legendary francophone rocker Éric Lapointe and chose him as her coach. Rosa showed a solid stage presence, with remarkable intensity and a voice so powerful it sent her straight to the Grand Finale where she shared the stage with DEF LEPPARD, Kelly Clarkson, Jean Leloup and her idol, Melissa Etheridge. She left a lasting impression as she won over millions of viewers who named her the new "it" female rocker of Quebec.   She then released one album in the Quebec market before beginning work on her first English language album in 2016. That album, "Free", was released the following year and at the end of the year, she joined the popular American band TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRAfor their annual mega tour of the United States. Laricchiuta's hard rock project BLACK ROSE MAZE released its self-titled debut album in August 2020 via Frontiers Music Srl. VIXEN has more than a dozen more shows scheduled for the summer and early fall.
    • Huh, how odd. I just checked and it's indeed there. I guess I'm blind.
    • I see them both in my spotify?! Remixes sound good and better than originals to me!
    • How odd. It appears that only the first remixed album is on Spotify. I usually don't bother to listen to remixes, but I think I'll check this one out.
    • Apparently the first two H.E.A.T albums have been remixed and are on YouTube. I personally don't think there was anything wrong with the originals and some of these new versions seem overproduced to me, but I'll let you all judge for yourselves.  
    • It's average for them IMO. Good to hear that singer again though. She was on a lot of their songs a few years ago when they were at their best.
