2009 versus 2010

 

Some of the best square off, along with match-ups that are pretty much self explanatory. :)

 

2009 releases are always listed first in each poll question, 2010 releases second.

 

Poll choices are public, but feel free to expand on your picks! :banger:

 

*No idea why I've waited so long to do another one of these polls; working on 2010 vs 2011 now!

I voted but it might take me a while to explain and why I voted. The toughest decision was Hardcore Superstar vs Jettblack but I voted for HS. Winger vs Ratt was also tough but Ratt got the nod due to better production. Heaven&Hell over Ozzy was easy as that Oz was shit and the H&H was killer.

OK, I didn't actually vote cos I can't answer all sections but here's my verdicts -

 

D2 > Treat (but I love both)

 

Winger > Ratt (but the Ratt is v good)

 

Heaven & Hell > Ozzy (pretty easy)

 

As for the sleazy showdown, I can't even bear to consider this without Crashdiet or Crazy Lixx being mentioned which destroy your 2 ;-)

 

Pretty Maids > Poodles (again pretty easy one)

 

Hardcore Superstar > Jettblack (easy peasy)

 

HEAT > Gotthard

 

Just a few more points to add

 

2010 > 2009.

 

Also you ignored my top picks from the respected years - 2009 - WET / 2010 - First Signal

 

Also looking back at my best of 2010 one which I got wrong was Reckless Love - should have been a lot higher than 25th - I have come to love this band and album!

 

Cheers

Just to clarify, the choices I've listed aren't necessarily my favorites (heck, I don't even own probably 50% of releases listed) but the ones from each year that I felt matched up well either stylistically or via former bandmates competing against each other.

 

I may include an indifferent/don't own either as a third voting option in future polls.

I feel ashamed because I love both, but went with Treat. Most of the rest I do own one or the other, so went with the one I own.

I think Treat was 87% and D2 90%

 

For me it was Treat's best album but not D2. Just prefer D2 as a band.

Ditto. I dig Treat and have all of their albums but prefer D2 and it's not even close.

Treat vs. D2 is no fair. Both my picks for albums of the year in 2009 and 2010. Although my other top pick of 2010, which was a tie between Treat's Coup De Grace was Crashdiet's - Generation Wild, which I don't believe is in this poll. Too many releases I haven't heard to properly answer.

Quick summary of my findings excluding the albums I don't own or know:

 

Treat - Coup De Grace ; ridiculously close and I'd have to rate both albums to get an accurate reading, but I think I'd probably just give the nod to Treat, though both are brilliant. Two of my all time favourite bands.

 

Winger - Karma ; hard again because both are fantastic, but on songs alone I think the Winger disc had a few more killers.

 

Stryper - Murder By Pride ; easy one as the Mass album was solid, but average. The Stryper disc was quite good.

 

Leverage - Circus Colossus ; Masterplan have never done anything for me so this was an easy one too.

 

The Last Vegas - Whatever Gets You Off ; easy vote again as this was quite good and the Buckcherry was very average.

 

Jaded Heart - Perfect Insanity ; by miles. The Bormann disc was okay, but this one's got some killer tunes on it. Really quite dig it.

 

Great White - Rising ; easy vote as the Krokus disc did 0 for me,

 

Pretty Maids - Pandemonium ; another easy one. The Poodles delivered a nice obvious collection of melodic rock, but this one destroys anything The Poodles could ever dream to conjure up.

 

Y&T - Facemelter ; two pretty average albums to be totally honest, but I'd give the nod to these guys.

 

Hardcore Superstar - Beg For It ; I really like the Jettblack, but this one's far stronger from start to finish.

 

My Darkest Days - S/T ; pretty tight again. Neither were anywhere near the top for me in each year, but both are good, solid discs. I'd go with MDD but like both plenty.

 

H.E.A.T. - Freedom Rock ; not the best album from Gotthard, but a classic from these guys. Easiest vote of all.

    • My apologies, cob, but didn't Cody say "the only thing Atheists all have in common is we do not subscribe to the myth of the deity, god or higher power, of any kind, this is it, then we are worm food, not all Atheists subscribe to the same meaning or philosophy, we don't all believe in the same science, or anything, I personally feel as though..." Sorry if I misread, but that doesn't really sound like a group that are fundamentalist in their certainty. In fact, none of that really sounded to me how you describe it.  What does intrigue me, though, is that you acknowledge that we are just a speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant... yet religious folk believe that there's a god out there somewhere and his only concern is whether this speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant follows the gospel or not? And not only this speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant, but every single other speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant that has ever existed? Of the entire universe throughout the entirety of time, all this god really cares about is whether each speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant is following the gospel. Because if not, that speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant is sure as heck going to hell. Sounds like the type of being I'd like to devote my single human life to.  Sorry dudes, like I say, I'm not an atheist (that I know of), and I'm sure as heck not a religious man. What do you call someone who is just honest enough to admit that I don't have a clue how we started, or why we are, or what will happen when we're dead? And I also believe that no one alive now, or whom has lived before us, has these answers either. Nor will they ever have them. No matter how steadfast someone is in their belief of whatever they believe, no one will ever be able to answer, with 100% certainty, those questions. 
    • And a small but important  update. Had an MRI scan two weeks back and just before I went in for a weeks chemo. The day I was discharged the doctor who discharged me gave me the results of the MRI scan and confirmed my feelings that the brain cancer had reduced in size, so everything it seems is going to plan.
    • I'd like to think so too, but I don't think it is. But I am always weary of what's being reported in Australian media. Are we just seeing everything from the hysterical, moronic and blown out of proportion version that the Aussie media feeds us? Or are there actually things happening outside of this country that are as hysterically panic driven as they are here? From the few other things I've heard, globally, it does seem that this variant has earned it's own little slice of worldwide panic, so I guess we'll see. This Panic First, Ask Questions Later mentality that the world has adopted is honestly an (even further) embarrassment to humanity. If I didn't have children I would confess that the time has certainly well and truly come for the human race to be nuked and made extinct. I ponder how much I hated humans in 2019. It took 40 years to build up that level of hatred. I am not even kidding to say that those 40 years of built up hatred has probably doubled, if not tripled or even quadrupled in the space of the two years since. What I think of what has become of the human race in the space of two years has no words left to describe it. 
    • It is definitely flashdance. I can't unhear it now.
    • Everyone I have spoken to from cities are shitting themselves over this Omricon variant. I say to them "don't you want things to go back to normal?". But they really don't. They are loving living in a police state. I have spoken to a number of ex-prisoners as well who have similar thoughts about jail. I think a lot of people are wired to like having freedom and choice taken away from them. They enjoy having fewer options. It is bizarre to me.
    • the first song wasn't the clip I heard - this sound more promising to me https://www.facebook.com/100764135031478/posts/426269785814243/  
    • mmmm. Erik great, verses great, solo typical but still good, chorus suspect.  Am I the only one who hears Flashdance in the chorus 🤔 🤣🤣🤣
