To this day I only like one single song from a Paul Gilbert solo album, and as far as I understand it's an Enuff Z' Nuff leftover... but it's damn nice;

That said, I expect the new album to be awful. :(

Wow..very nice... listening to it for the first time. I never bothered about his solo albums. Heard a couple of his songs and they were bad. His Spice Girls' cover of 2 become 1 was the only song I kinda liked.

Yeah, I won't say I've heard them all as I gave up a while back, but I heard a lot for a long time, as my good friend is a guitarist and diehard fan. But it was all rubbish, apart from this one song, imo. ;)

The album he did with Freddie Nelson, United States, was really good.

Just heard a couple of samples... songs sound okay but what's with the guy trying to be Freddie Mercury, or the twat from the Darkness? Haha, no, he's definitely not that bad. Definitely more Freddie Mercury... but who is he? An impersonator or something? I'm kind of tempted to check this album out.

I don't know. I think he's kind of a no-one but is fairly highly regarded because he has a 4 octave voice or something.

When I posted that comment I wondered what happened to Freddie Nelson, and found that he released a solo album last year.
Heard it a couple of times and it's also pretty good so far.

If you're going to listen to anything off United States, I'd recommend
Paris Hilton Look-Alike
Waste Of Time
Girl From Omaha
I'm Not Addicted

Cool, I'll try to check it out. I heard 'Waste of time' which sounded pretty cool.

    • Vega, Crazy Lixx, HEAT, Degreed (this year will hit 5 winners ), ditto for Eclipse...no 5 this year will no doubt be great (I don't include their first 2 as they certainly hate them and they are never being recognised, played live or 're recorded) But I agree every band from yesteryear has at one stinker in their history (although I can listen to Hope & VOR they are definitely weaker) 
    • Can't think of any of favorite bands who've released over 5 albums that haven't released at least on bad album.  Danger Danger - Dawn Dokken - Shadowlife Dream Theater - The Astonishing....ly fucking brutal release Van Halen - III and for the most part Diver Down Harem Scarem - Hope and Voice Of Reason...I honestly can't listen to either Lillian Axe - pretty much everything after Psycho... The only band that comes to mind to have released at least 5 albums, that are HH material and none have been poor or bad is likely H.E.A.T. although I've enjoyed some much more than others.     
    • Love Reaction is the only track on the debut that I would not give it a 10, still a great tune, but the other 9 are all better.
    • Better at my end too.
    • Now it works again.
    • Thanx,I thought it was my connection also  
    • Finally!!!!! Time to believe all the things that you see in this mannequin show...     
    • I have BTBAR on an AOR treasures album. MP3 only. But it is v good quality. Brilliant chorus - one their best. I think White Widdow covered it as well on their Crossfire album (obviously not as good) 
    • Pretty nice. Not my favourite from him... but nice. 
    • That's a great song too, but not sure I have a top notch well produced version of that one... just an average demo, I think. 'Die off hard' is actually one of my all-time faves and I saw the error in my archives was a simple typo. Silly, but an actual error on my behalf.  Regarding 'Love Reaction' - it's a good song and one that has history for me too. I remember reading a review for the debut Harem Scarem album in a magazine for years; can't believe I forget the name now. Metal something (not Edge - it was a UK magazine). But I'd read the review so much in anticipation of finally getting the CD, and the reviewer there was wild about 'Love Reaction' and it was his pick from the album. So in the lead up I was so focused on that song and waiting for it as I played it for the first time when I eventually got it. Gotta admit, I was a bit underwhelmed. It is another of their massive banquet of awesome songs... but it's not up to top of the list for me for sure.  Arguably my least favourite on the sensational debut, to be honest.
