Mhm.

 

I'm interested to start heading the other direction. I want to know what I should be listening to from '95-'00.

I'm actually curious to know what people consider the best of 1993 ...the 1st year of grunge....but I figured it could wait... :lol:

Yeah, like Karpet, I'm all about the other direction. 1993 was still an excellent year, I believe. The only albums from 1982 I'd have given any ear time to at all would be Kiss and Motley Crue. So for the record, my summary of 1982:

 

1. Motley Crue - 'Too fast for love'

2. Kiss - 'Creatures of the night'

Here's my short list for 1982 - God only knows how I will decide on my top 5, but I've starred the 5 contenders -

 

  1. 707 - Megaforce
  2. Alliance Alliance
  3. Asia Asia *
  4. Balance In For The Count
  5. Gillan Magic
  6. Grand Prix Samurai
  7. Hughes/Thrall Hughes/Thrall
  8. Iron Maiden – Number Of The Beast *
  9. KISS Creatures Of The Night
  10. Magnum Chase The Dragon
  11. The Michael Schenker Group Assault Attack
  12. Michael Stanley Band MSB
  13. Motley Crue Too Fast For Love
  14. Neal Schon and Jan Hammer Here to Stay
  15. Night Ranger Dawn Patrol *
  16. Aldo Nova Aldo Nova
  17. Queen Hot Space
  18. REO Speedwagon Good Trouble
  19. Rainbow Straight Between the Eyes
  20. Shooting Star – 3 Wishes
  21. Spys – s/t
  22. Survivor Eye of the Tiger *
  23. TNT TNT
  24. Toto Toto IV *
  25. Triumph Never Surrender
  26. Uriah Heep - Abominog
  27. Whitesnake Saints and Sinners
  28. Y and T Black Tiger

 

I dearly love those 5 albums......and for those of you that have not heard Eye of the Tiger album, 'that' song is probably the worst track.....killer album.

 

Then you have arguably the best west coast album of all time - Toto - IV

 

Arguably the greatest metal album of all time - Number of The Beast

 

Arguably Night Ranger's best album

 

and Asia's finest moment - the classic AOR debut.

 

Ye Gods...............

You're quite right Thomas. It's on the site as 1983 hence why it's on my list for that year but I forgot it was actually 1982 in Europe. Will change my list for this as it's a brilliant album. I think it was maybe released in the US in 1983 on a different label hence why that year on HH.

Yes, the US version seems to be 1983 with this cover:

No brainer for me:

 

SCORPIONS - BLACKOUT

IRON MAIDEN - THE NUMBER OF THE BEAST

 

September 10, 1982. Maiden opening for Scorps. My first live rock show (I don't count Kenny Rogers at Marriott's Great America). My buddies and I were in junior high and left school early to get in line (when they had festival seating) at Portland's Memorial Coliseum in Portland, Oregon. Thanks for the fake doctor's note and ride to the gig, Mom!

 

I loved rock prior to that evening having been a huge KISS fan since I was ten in 1978, and of course I was into Van Halen, Journey and such, but that particular night changed everything for me. I became a full-on rocker that day, and I've never looked back.

My Top 10 best of 1982 (in alphabetical order)

Aerosmith - Rock In A Hard Place
Cold Chisel - Circus Animals
Dire Straits - Love Over Gold
Iron Maiden - The Number Of The Beast
Judas Priest - Screaming For Vengeance
Kiss - Creatures Of The Night
Rush - Signals
Scorpions - Blackout
Whitesnake - Saints And Sinners
Y & T - Black Tiger
This wasn't too hard coming up with a Top 10 since I've only got about 20 for this year, and some of the others are just for band completeness, rather than being favourites.

I respect peoples opinion but my gripe is the list is not complete.

 

Surely even for Geoff Asia and Toto would score above 45% ??

 

Both are classics to me.

I know mate, but you'll get there one day. Just smarten up a bit. One day someone may respect you. Well, maybe... especially if you lose that christianity thing.

 

Anyway guys, I 100% admit that these lists are incomplete. You mention some awful artists there, Glen, and I could mention early Y&T and Van Halen, who would probably both rate above 45% too... amongst many others. But what am I meant to do? In a world of a billion albums, is it really in my best interest to listen to albums I know without an element of doubt that I will not like? I've done it more than enough in the past, obviously, and I need to cull this filthy habit.

 

Yes, I could create bigger lists with 100+ albums rated from 30-55%, but why? Why even bother? I did print the lists from 1980-1983 admitting it was not my thing. If any of my lists from 1984 are incomplete in y'all's eyes (well, except for Karpetface as we really don't care what he says anyway, do we?) then please feel free to get stuck into me. I have stated countless times that 1984 is where it starts for me, and the basic fact is I just don't like pre-1984 music as a whole. I just had to get them out the way quick, but I can assure you that from 1984 onwards I will have nice, full and extensive lists. ;)

    • greed,very much in the vein(not as good as) Wild Rose and last years  Odyssey Desperado,very safe but why oh why make a lyric video when the lyricas are so silly? Is it just to emphasise it?
    • lol @ the lyrics. This reminds me of that recent band that had very bad lyrics and cool melodies. But it's cool like those bands like Wild Rose, and others I can't think of at the moment. The one that starts with an L? Who knows... but it's nice safe melodic rock with silly lyrics. 
    • And here it is... it's on now?! Oh well, here it is. One of the coolest songs I've been enjoying in 2018, and probably AW's best song to date;  
    • I don't know where we've been posting about new releases from these guys through the years, but they've been churning them out at a decent level. There's a cool tune on the new album referencing this dream of theirs; that they're not in it for success but for the love of the music. Anyway... They haven't been setting my world alight, and no album compares to their debut, but they're okay. Anyway, the new mini-album (7 tracks) is mostly more of the same. But there is one song that has actually set my 2018 playlist on fire, which I think a lot of people here would like.  And, just found out it's not on youtube.   But it's called 'Get It On' and I'll try to post it when it's available. Get your ears on it if you can. It actually may appeal to the synthwave fans here... not that it's a synthwave song. But it's well off the AW beaten track... but in a great way.  This song is quite fine too, though, just to have something to post;  
    • Sounds worth checking out. I will seek. 
    • Yumsex. I still can't for the life of me understand why Steve West didn't play drums on the debut The Defiants album... kinda sad to see him and Bruno apart for what I am guessing might be the first time in their post D2 playing career? No, I lie. Westworld. But generally, the two have been together in everything and I was surprised when Mr West wasn't on The Defiants album. Good to hear he is home again.  And I agree - Eclipse and The Defiants is a nice start to 2019 for sure. 
    • Hmmm. There is a great song in there. But I also hear a bit of POL-ism that actually brings the song back a few pegs. If it was let to run free it'd be great... but yeah, just get rid of any POL influence please. Still, pretty cool tune. 
    • Yeah, I would agree with that as well.
