New Thread Idea -- Best Of Compilations -- Band 1: CrashDiet


Recommended Posts

Here is a new thread idea for everyone. We all love making "best of" compilations of our favorite artists/bands. These compilations will be limited to an 80 minute CDR, so choose your songs wisely. Our first "best of" band is: CRASHDIET. This will be very difficult to fit their best on one 80 minute CDR but that's what makes this fun!

 

So if you had to limit yourself to an 80 minute disc, what would your "Best Of CrashDiet" compilation be??

 

I'll return and add mine after I figure it out.

Good idea for a thread, but imo a surprising choice for the first band as their back catalogue is quite small.

 

Admittedly, I haven't heard the new album, but I would have no chance of filling 80 minutes with their stuff; I'd probably get to about 7 songs.

 

When there's a Scorpions, Ratt or Death (!) version of the thread I might be more able to contribute...

Scorpions or Ratt would be way to hard for me, 2 of my favorites.

i cannot get into this song at all....

Me either!

 

Not rocket science lyrics of course but its the g'n'r guitar riff midway through that gets this a nod from me...and it is a bonus track,maybe even a hidden bonus track if it goes to track 15 instead ;)

If I did a Crashdiet compilation, 'Chemical' would be the first song on it. And probably somewhere in the middle too. Such a great song, easily their best imo.

First list without 'Falling rain.' And even more oddly, it's replaced with 'In the raw,' a very middle-road rocker?

 

Haha, to each their own. Just pointing out that you're a creep. And everyone else thinks you are too. ;)

 

Seriously, though, on a weaker album, 'Falling rain' is one of my overall favourite Crashdiet songs. No compilation of the band's work would be complete without it, imo.

Says he with 'Rebel' in his list which an even more average rocker ;-)

 

Seriously though there are at least 3 demos which beat virtually everything in my list -

 

Tomorrow

Wrecking Machine

Hot All Through The Night

 

If you haven't heard these check them out on You Tube - criminal that these haven't been released!!

'Tomorrow' is a great tune, but clearly the launching pad for 'It's a miracle.'

 

Not sure I've heard 'Wrecking machine' before. Sounds pretty sweet. What sessions is that from?

 

And not sure I've heard 'Hot All Through The Night' - that's a great one for sure.

 

Definitely still think 'Rebel' is one of their best songs of all. Killer riff, just the kind of song I love.

You sir are correct! One of the greatest songs of the last 20 years.

Opinions; incredible how they can differ so much when general tastes are quite similar.

 

For me, 'Chemical' is by far Crashdiet's best song. Head and shoulders above every other tune they've done. th_shrug-1.gif

Ha ha Chemical is great (of course) but it would be towards the bottom of my top 10. It's A Miracle is untouchable.

    • Nice...maybe they have a compilation coming out ..a bit like Crazy Lixx and this is from that?
    • Ya, when I saw the teaser on fuckbook, I was shocked…such a great surprise.  Hope it’s a great song!
    • Not stellar, but candidly waaaay better than I was expecting.
    • Not going to disagree with this. They've really not changed their sound much across their discography. Either you like it or you don't.
    • New single 'Apocalypse Blues' out tomorrow    
    • Not quite sure about this one. The new (?) songs are good and the re-works of the 'Riot Avenue' songs do sound better than the originals (there is a but coming). 'Sword And Stone' is okay but should have been left in Bonfire's very capable hands. This version pales significantly compared to that one.  Anyway, I guess the idea of the re-recordings is decent here. For the most part the production sounds better, but, there's a problem. And without being a sound guru, I'm not sure exactly what it is. There is what I believe is an issue with the treble area in the final sound, most noticeable in the first song. I don't know the exact way to explain this stuff, but the best way to describe it is that it sounds like a well produced album, at a really low bitrate. Instead of 320kbps it just sounds like it's coming through the speakers at 64kbps... even at a high bitrate. Irritating and something I can't shake, but there's good bits to it too.    
    • I loved this dude's first two post-Idol albums. It's pure pop rock, but I still absolutely love songs such as this; Sadly, for me, everything since those first two albums has been some kind of variation of a train wreck. The Quiet Riot stuff was a mess and this type of metal he's churning out now - I regret to say - is just painful to my ears. Lyrically, he may as well be singing about pasta on train tracks with a side of tree branch for all I can connect with it. Musically I find it really boring, and lyrically it's even worse.  I've actually got the hard copies of first two CDs in my garage but it's too much hassle to go look for them. I can't remember if he wrote or at least co-wrote a lot of the stuff on those two albums, but either way it definitely sounded like the songs at least meant something to him. I'd like to hear that again rather than him trying this metal thing which really doesn't seem to suit him. If he's passionate about it, sure, go for it. I'd love to hear him doing something heavy (and good)... but with songs that actually sound like they mean something to him. This new album sounds like trash to me, I hate to say. He's undoubtedly had a very interesting life post-Idol. I'd much rather hear about that in songs rather than dragons eating reapers in balls of fiery metal or whatever shit is on this album. 
    • Pretty true to their sound so many years into their career. Definitely sounds like HS; no doubt about that. 'Broken' is my favourite song from here... nice tune. Most of the rest is all pretty good to solid too. Admirable effort. 
    • Probably wouldn't have bothered to check this out if I'd not heard an interview with Ace where they spoke about the fact that Steve Brown of Trixter fame co-wrote and produced the album. And it does sound good, production-wise. And the songs are a bit better than I expected. Stand out track is the simple but nice 'Back Into My Arms Again.'  The but? For me, it's the vocals. He is not a good singer... quite a bad one, in fact, and it affects the songs poorly, for me. Which is not to say they're all great otherwise. But some are okay. I wish they'd used Steve for the vocals... 
    • Ok even more clues. Carl's best friend the boy who cried ... and hallowed be thy name.
