Heaven's Wish - Heaven's Wish

High Voltage - Written In Stone

Jillson - Deadly Girl

Kelley's Heroes - Kelley's Heroes

Manila Thrills - Tomorrow's Waiting

Mariah - Mariah

Mariah - Somewhere Between Heaven and Earth

Mariah - III

Mass - Sea of Black

Those Pyramid, Wild August, and Heartless disc's are absolutely killer.

 

I'm not 100% convinced with Wild August. I've those albums for years, and I have never loved them. The musicianship is good--most of the guitar solos are mindless masturbation, however--but the songwriting is lacking. I do love the vocals in some of the tracks, though.

 

Heartless is most definitely amazing. I wish there was more from them.

 

Pyramid are great, too. Is the other disc just as good?

 

Defcon, Jillson, and Mariah are easily the best things on that list.

I forgot about Defcon a good disc as well.

Defcon - s/t and Pretty Boy - 'Metro Sessions' are the best two, imo.

 

Yeah, but Pretty Boy has been out of stock forever.

Again this is the one you need!

 

 

 

 

 

Plus the Retroscpect release has the full length album andthe EP on one disc and of course this one NEVER saw a cd release only cassette and LP.

No, I know. I saw this, but I prefer "I'm Down." Is the album more in the style of your favourite track, or mine?

I know. Every time I play it, I think of you. And I realize how creepy that might sound. ;}

 

But seriously, "Standing On This Borderline" is one of my favorite AOR tracks.

Joined Forces, Rage N Rox, The Storm, and Wild Rose are all out of stock.

 

Isom sounds good, and I was already planning on getting Reckless. Hunter doesn't sound bad either.

Here are some of my faves:

 

Cobra Dane- should've been a massive seller. Killer vocalist and guitar work.

 

Crash Alley- second cd is better than the first. Close to a sleaze masterpiece.

 

Heist- as others have said this is great.

 

Kelley's Heroes- Probably the best thing Retrospect has ever released. If you're into Skid Row type stuff.

 

Lickity Split- tongue in cheek humor. It's great if you don't take it too seriously.
