Harem Scarem - Harem Scarem
KIX - Hotwire
Mr. Big - Lean Into It
Neverland - Neverland
Bad Angels - On the Rail

An absolute no brainer for me....Harem Scarem. This is what I would call a perfect album, but would love it to get re-recorded like they did with Mood Swings.

 

Other great ones were Saigon Kick - s/t, White Lion - Mane Attraction, Van Halen . F.U.C.K. and Danger Danger - Screw It! (although half that album sucks while the other half is some of the best melodic rock ever)

Not the most amazing year but the top 10 will be pretty tasty.

 

I reckon for me it will be a 3 way battle between The Storm, Harem Scarem and Kane Roberts.

 

I love all 3.

I gotta check out this Drive She Said band. Their name always made me think they were Modern Rock.

Without seeing the rest of the albums from the year, based on this list alone, anyone who thinks 1991 wasn't a great year is out of their goddamn godforsaken mind! There's about 6 all-time favourite albums in that list alone! Is it even legal to have those Harem Scarem, Kane Roberts, Europe, Casanova, Danger Danger and Dare albums all from the same year? It shouldn't be.

In fact I wouldnt bother with any of them - I just rated the debut at 77.5%.

 

3 or 4 great songs but a lot of weaker tracks too imo

Yeah, from all these threads it's not one of the bands I'd be aching to track down. Like you say, some brilliant songs in their discography, but a lot of clutter too. You could make a brilliant EP out of their first two albums. Don't even bother with the 3rd.

    • This band does absolutely ZERO for me.
    • Love it!  Very new-breed DRN... I don't normally dig that type of thing from my favorite 80's bands, but I'm good with it here.  Once again, Daiker is all over this one. Look at Mel slide into everyone of those notes on bass.  Dude is SOOOOOOOOOOOO damn good.  Such a shame he's virtually unknown outside Portland, Oregon (and a those of you in-the-know for this type of music).
    • The guitar-work is great.  I think it's a pretty decent cover. Look, I've been a HUGE fan since 1983, so you'll be hard-pressed to get me to say anything negative about this band.  Those of you who weren't around to see them on the Pyromania and Hysteria tours... God I feel badly for you.  "Top of their game" is a HUGE understatement.  The Beatles of my era for sure.
    • Only point I was looking to make was that I agreed with the prior post above which had mentioned being frustrated that the guys hadn't put out many new releases over the last 15 years and that it may be beneficial to work with a better producer again.  Your follow up post pointed to the time between their earlier releases being similar and I responded to explain how I felt that was different, no worries though, we just see things differently
    • Inglorious indicated a few months ago that they had finished recording the songs for their third album, hinted as being heavier than their prior releases, which should be released via Frontiers in February 2019.  The first song/video from the upcoming album is out now https://www.planetrock.com/news/rock-news/inglorious-say-heavier-third-album-is-done-and-reveal-release-date/    
    • From 84 (the year after Pyromania) until 99 they released 4 studio albums, yes, but from 2000 until 2015 they released 3 studio albums, not 2. Not really that much difference. They also released the covers album, so that was pretty much the same level of output. They still continue to tour regularly and had issues such as Campbells cancer scare and recovery from that, plus the musical landscape is vastly different to that first time scale you mention.   Really not sure what your point is here?      
    • Uh...it doesn't sound bad.  Not as raw as the original and I think that hurts this version. But...if you're gonna do a cover, get the lyrics right.  "It's the eye of the tiger, it's the dream of the fight?"  Uh... no.
    • Damn good album...Has moved up my list also. I think as of now my top 4 are probably: Kissin' Dynamite Shiraz Lane Treat Maverick I'm not even bothering listing #5 as I'm saving a spot in the top 5 for Midnite City....Almost expecting that it'll slot in at either #1 or #2. And probably a good chance Nordic Union pushes the list also. Another release I'm really digging is Hearts On Fire.  Not officially out yet but have been listening to it for a month or so from doing a premium pre order.  Not quite making my top 5 but probably in the 6-8 range at the moment.
