Would've been more interesting if they re-recorded those earlier songs with Erik doing vocals.

Not looking to rekindle the Kenny vs Erik debate.  I'd just like to hear Erik doing those songs....he brings a different style to them.

Would have been nice if they could have included all of the Japanese bonus tracks instead of live, demo and radio edits on the bonus CD.

Some of my favourite tracks by them have been on Jap releases.

FYI Miley, Too far on the wild side, Back into your arms, California & Shame.

Second that. Strange choice indeed...

Apart from "Beg Beg Beg," we all know "Tonight" is H.e.a.t's greatest song. So it's baffling as to why it's not on this compilation.

The probability is we will probably get some kind of b-sides, bonus tracks and outtakes album at some point put together by the record label. These kind of greatest hits packages etc rarely have full input from the bands, and the labels are always looking at a way to make more money out of people.

Look at Airbourne and their label. Released a box set of previous albums with a bonus disc of b-sides with no mention of the b-sides album ever being released on its own, then months later it sneaks out on its own. You cannot see that as anything other than the record label conning people to spend more on the box set  to get the tracks they don't own, and then releasing the single CD later to mop up any extra sales.

For me, songs that shouldn't have made it are...

There For You
Late Night Lady
Straight For Your Heart
Breaking The Silence
Inferno
Eye Of The Storm

Missing Songs...

Follow Me
Shelter
The One And Only
Heartbreaker
Downtown
Mannequin Show (how did this not get on?)
Laughing At Tomorrow
Redefined
Shit City
We Rule
Into The Great Unknown

"Mannequin Show (how did this not get on?)" - Because it's not very good? :D

It's really hard not to get over the "sounds like Britney spears" thing. I brought my friend to a gig and she immediately spotted the similarities, despite never having heard it before.

eye of the storm is one of my fav HEAT songs.

Laughing at tomorrow is the WORST song on that album

Yeah Eye of the storm is probably one of the best songs on the new album. Agree with you on Laughing at tomorrow.. I remember being so keen to hear it based on the studio session videos they were uploading for the album, but it just didn't work at all for me when I finally heard it. Such a weak ending to the album :(

meh, we all like different songs.

I generally find that most greatest hits albums contain a bunch of songs that I'm not a huge fan of and some songs I really love are shunned.

Certainly not trying to convince anyone here that HEAT chose the wrong songs. Just putting my 2c in :)

over the years I've only ever really bought greatest hits albums of bands I wasn't massively into. Where I just wanted the 'singles' or best songs (mostly ;) )

bands like Queen, Thin Lizzy, REO, Motorhead, Deep Purple etc.

For a band like HEAT it's a no brainer to just buy everything cos 95% of their songs are awesome.

Was Ratt 81 - 91 for me.

Here is Aus we never had massive exposure to Ratt.

I recall hearing Casey Kasem playing Round & Round on the radio, but I never really pursued them much,

Bought that GHits and really liked pretty much all of the songs on it. Then I explored the albums and didn't find too much more I was all that interested in.

Like Glenn, I tend to save them for bands I am not a die hard fan of. Eagles, John Lennon, Fleetwood Mac, Dr. Hook, etc Love the bands and the music, but happy to stick with the hits pretty much

    • I know, I know. We all know the answer but still I have to ask: So what happened to the "Cessation of Touring Contract" by the Crue?
    • Whoah... much better than I expected before clicking on them. Reminds me vocally of a lighter version of Lizzy Borden crossed with Rob Moratti. I'm going to have to track this one down.
    • from various internet sources: TYGERS OF PAN TANG will release their new album, “Ritual”, next Friday, while this Japanese edition including a bonus track appeared today. This is the band’s second recording by the current Tygers lineup, recorded with the help of renowned Søren Andersen, most recently known for his role as Glenn Hughes’s guitarist. Mastering done by Harry Hess (Harem Scarem). Tygers Of Pan Tang is a legendary band with some legendary albums, but I’m dare to say “Ritual” is one of their best. There’s a classic melodic hard rock feel all over the record, with some irresistible riffing, powerful grooves and catchy choruses. The mastermind here is original member, guitarist Robb Weir. The band’s current phase proves as formidable as its heyday, with longtime drummer Craig Ellis, vocalist Jacopo Meille, bassist Gavin Gray and guitarist Micky Crystal. “Ritual” wastes no time in stampeding the listener with the bursting “Worlds Apart,” one of the heaviest tunes on the album. Fair warning though – the straight forward chorus can stick in your mind for weeks, like a modern day version of “Gangland.” This isn’t the only instance on “Ritual,” this is an album chock full of hook laden rockers. “Destiny” slides in and the ride continues with a soulful voice. The pounding percussion is back and the riff are melodic, precise. The lyrics are thoughtful, and well written, and do tell a story, unlike many of these so-called hits of today in those other genres that just repeat over and over again. Slipping into the triple-twist of the steam train you’re on, comes, “Rescue Me“. There’s a simple riff and hook that becomes infectious, and still has you in its clutches. The vocals, clear and understandable, will have you singing along before you realize you’re doing it. The track that will “Raise Some Hell” is definitely the hidden gem on the record. This has got to be a live track used to get the crowd worked into a frenzy. Fast-paced, and rockin’ as hell. Screaming vocals, a rocket train paced guitar, and drums to match. If this song doesn’t get you off your backside and have your fist-pounding, then shut off the record and go back to your BackStreet Boys, because you’re listening to the wrong music! As this roller coaster continues, you reach the point where you just don’t wanna get off yet, and hope the rest is just as exciting. Luckily, you would be right. “Spoils Of War” might be the most melodic song of the bunch, but this midtempo still rocks hard and the solo kills. Masterfully played track. After a few more thrills, and twists, you know the ride is gaining its way to the final gate, but don’t take the safety bar off just yet. “The Art Of Noise” has yet another trick that will have you raising your fists into the air, and trying to catch your breath once again. Hang on, because you still have to “Sail On” until the end. Maybe not the most exciting part of this ride, but still an effective end. Clear concise vocals and equally as good playing from the rest of the Tygers are ever-present here. So sit back, and enjoy this last bit of this “Ritual” and to hell with keeping your arms and legs inside the ride at all times. “Ritual” may be the bast sounding Tygers album since 1981’s Spellbound, but don’t take me wrong, it’s still a fresh new album that stands on its own. You couldn’t ask for a more beautifully produced album. Presenting a top notch mix and crystal clear recording, the use of modern technology pays homage to the band’s legacy without succumbing to a thin lifeless sound. And songwriting is just as strong, as each musician performance. One of the best classic rock / traditional hard / melodic albums of the year. Raise those fists, and enjoy. Highly Recommended Tracklist: 01 – Worlds Apart 02 – Destiny 03 – Rescue Me 04 – Raise Some Hell 05 – Spoils of War 06 – White Lines 07 – Words Cut Like Knives 08 – Damn You! 09 – Love Will Find a Way 10 – Art of Noise 11 – Sail On JAPAN BONUS TRACK: 12 – Don’t Touch Me There (2019 Version) Robb Weir – Guitars Craig Ellis – Drums Jack Meille – Vocals Gavin Gray – Bass Micky Crystal – Guitars   BUY IT www.cdjapan.co.jp/product/MICP-11527    
    • Well, I can't wait for it.
    • I won't as long as my mom is taking me down there! I know they're great still- this will be my first concert though 😋
    • Don't miss it. They're still amazing live. 
    • Is he really more and more in demand? Or is it simply signing with Frontiers means he is producing?
    • https://meramecmusictheatre.tix.com/Event.aspx?EventCode=1154903 Me & my mom might go together! 
    • Heard of Kane only from the band LSD and I have no clue who the other person is.
    • Oh boy! I'll try to contain my excitement!
