Nice one. But wowser, you didn't make it easy. Two excellent bands and here's how the cards fell for me:

 

CrashDiet "Rest In Sleaze" ; 2 killer debuts but the Crashdiet one is pretty much a classic. The first 5 songs are so amazing.

 

CrashDiet "Generation Wild" ; 2 more killer discs, but overall 'Generation wild' competed for the top spot in 2010 while Crazy Lixx came in around 5th. Great discs, Crashdiet just a little higher level throughout the whole disc.

 

Crazy Lixx "Blame It On Love" ; I love 'Save her,' and I might even regret this decision but the chorus in 'Blame it on love' is just too much of an 80's anthem to ignore.

 

CrashDiet "Riot In Everyone" ; no contest. 'Rock And A Hard Place' was probably my least favourite song off the Crazy Lixx CD and 'Riot in everyone' is one of the best songs recorded in the last decade.

 

Crazy Lixx "21 'Til I Die" ; painful choice. 'Falling rain' was the best song off that CD and one of my faves from Crashdiet, but how the hell do you compete with something like '21 'til I die'??

 

CrashDiet "It's A Miracle" ; another impossible choice. 'Make ends meet' is brilliant, and again just ridiculously catchy but 'It's a miracle' is still my favourite Crashdiet song.

 

Crazy Lixx "Road To Babylon" ; Great Crazy Lixx tune, not one of the more memorable Crashdiet tunes. :)

Tough choices and as Geoff said two great bands but for me Crashdiet got all of my votes except for "Blame it On Love" over "Save Her" but to be honest that could of gone either way. Even with a different vocalist on each album I feel like Crashdiet is still a better band than Crazy Lixx but I love them both.

I vote exactly the same as Geoff except for "New Religion" is my pick over "Generation Wild" :)

 

+1

 

New Religion just pips Generation wild, but I think it was something stupid like 1%.

 

Both awesome albums (and awesome bands)

I listened through the new CL and CD yesterday again and is it just me or are Crazy Lixx more of a Melodic Hard Rock band and not really a sleaze band anymore? Not that there's anything wrong with that but to my ears the new disc is much more Def Leppard than Motley Crue. Don't get me wrong it's a great disc but it just doesn't have the same sleazy sound that I hear in Crashdiet and Hardcore Superstar. The first album had some of that feeling to it but that one even was a borderline Sleaze sound for me but again that was a great disc as well.

Yeah, I don't think either Crazy Lixx disc has much "sleaze" element at all. Very, very commercial sounding melodic hard rock. Suits me fine. :)

Melodic hard rock is the best description of "New Religion" while "Generation Wild" is more sleaze,

probably Crashdiet should be compared to the likes of Jettblack, Skull Daze, Pussy Sissters, or Axident Avenue, while Crazy Lixx in the same league as The Poodles, Wig Wam, and Vega

Let's see...nothing compares to RIS the best sleaz album of all time IMO. After that it was all Crazy Lixx. New Religion just kills Generation Wild not even in the same zip code IMO. "21 Til I Die" just kicks my ass everytime I hear it, it gets stuck on repeat quite often.

I voted all Crazy Lixx EXCEPT for I think New Religion slightly beats out Generation Wild. Top two releases in 2010 for me. GREAT poll. GREAT bands. Love 'em both. :party421:

Just wanted to say, that now both bands have released 3 albums, I think that Crazy Lixx have (for me anyway) just crept into the lead in the battle of these 2 bands......I freakin love the newie from CL.

Interesting stats here now.

 

RIS only just out doing Loud Minority which is a surprise, I thought that would be more clear cut.

 

& New Religion trouncing Generation Wild! I thought it was closer than that but obviously a lot of New Religion fans. I can understand this tho as new religion is an excellent album.

These results are shocking!

 

Why are they shocking? I actually agree with every result just not the margins.

 

In my opinion Generation Wild is a better album and CD is a better band. I also love Crazy Lixx but feel that CD is superior in every way.

    • Lyric video for 'Return To Glory'.    
    • New album out November 22 through Lions Pride Music. From Lions Pride Music: Martin Perticone AKA “Perticone Underdog” is an artist from Buenos Aires, Argentina who’s been in the music industry since the age of 13, when he joined the band Fondo Blues as a lead singer and guitar player. Martin played in the Argentinean under circuits for more than 25 years but during the way also got to know many important people in the music industry that led him to become Tour Manager for artists like Eric Martin from Mr Big in 2007 or even being invited as a guest for Richie Kotzen Latin American Tour in 2008. Martin has also toured around Latin America, USA, Europe and Hong Kong as a hired gun for many different artists until he finally decided to put more efforts on his solo career. That’s how his long-time friend Edu Giardina (well-known artist in Latin America) would become his producer and mentor for his debut album “Underdog”. The mixture of AOR, Southern Rock and Country makes this album unique and different with amazing and powerful melodies all over the place. The album featured guests such as Eric Martin (Mr Big) and Edu Giardina and brings reminiscent from the late 80’s and 90’s but keeping the best of current sounds and trends too. Perticone’s solo career has just begun and in only 1 year from his launch he’s got many followers and fans in Europe, Asia and Latin America. “Stuff In The Basement” was recorded during pandemic times at RED Studios Buenos Aires and features an amazing line-up of musicians from all over the world. Edu Giardina and Guillermo Porro got involved, one more time, as the producers and band members for this new release taking the album to another level. It is plain to see the growth of Perticone Underdog as an artist on this new production by just listening to the opening track of the album “Blame it on Me”. There are, as usual, some country “pearls” and 90’s rock reminiscences all over. Stuff in the Basement will be released in 29 August 2022 by Lions Pride Music worldwide!   CD Tracklist: 01. Blame It On Me 02. End Of The Line 03. Name Without A Face 04. Save Me Tonight 05. Game For Fools 06. Waiting 07. Let's Get Lost Tonight 08. What Went Wrong (I Wonder) 09. When It Rains 10. Falling   Perticone Underdog is: Martin Perticone: Lead & Backing Vocals, Acoustic & Rhythm Guitar Edu Giardina: Backing Vocals, Guitars, Bass, Keys, Drums, Progamming Ezequias Aquino: Saxophone Guillermo Porro: Guitar Solo on „Name Without A Face“ Will Wilde: Harmonica on „Game Of Fools“ Emmanuel Lopez: Lead Guitar on „Let's Get Lost Tonight“ Lara Goi: Backing Vocals on „What Went Wrong“ Brad Harper: Pedal Steel Guitar on „When It Rains“   facebook
