2011 vs 2012

Let the battle begin! 

 

*Been several years since I threw one of these together; thought I'd see if the current crowd enjoys them! :P

2011 releases on top. 2012 on bottom

I think the majority of the match-ups make some sort of logical sense. :P

Interesting. It must have taken a while to create.

Indeed. I usually work on one of these over the course of several days so that I don't get burned out on it. :P

I do enjoy looking at how certain years fare when you compare the various releases from them though. :drink:

Nicely done Mike! Great having you "back" out front.

 

I can honestly day I own maybe 1 of these records and haven't heard any others other than a track or 2.

 

Guess I can't play. ;)

Awesome stuff, Mike... but yeah, if I could make one suggestion it might be cool to have a haven't heard option too as there's about 7 or 8 I haven't heard here either. But. That won't stop me. May as well vote and take a guess on the ones I don't know. ;)

Okay;

1. haven't heard either but I hate Anthrax so surely Overkill were better? Surely...

2. Slash over Bach... which wouldn't happen every day. But that album was better, imo. 

3. That's like asking which way to die is better. Both horrible albums, but Chickenfoot might rate 6% over Van Halen's 5%? ;)

4. Kane Roberts over Alice Cooper, easily and always. Unless Cooper releases a CD in 2018...

5. It wasn't my favourite CL album, but it was better than the HCS one. 

6. Jamison over Journey, easily.

7. I'm offended that POL have 3 votes compared to TH so far. That is sickening. Album of the year in 2011 vs a bottom 5 contender in POL. :(

8. The Magnificent was a good disc (tad over-rated if I'm all together honest - ducks for cover) but this was HEAT at their best. 

9. LA Guns, obviously.

10. Didn't hear Nazareth, obviously, and Aerosmith is shit... but it can't be worse than Nazareth. 

11. For the only time in their career, The Poodles were significantly better than Wig Wam's worst album, by far. 

12. Can't remember either of these, but Queensryche would have been better than Tate. 

13. Didn't hear either, but no doubt Primal Fear would be significantly better.

14. Again, not heard, but I'd assume DT would be significantly better?

15. Not heard again, but Udo? Better than anyone? lol. Good one. Accept would have been eternally better. 

16. Good RS album vs a pretty average JW album - no real contest here.

17. Horrid album from GW and a pretty decent album from WS. Not great... but better than GW by a long way.

18. Pretty weak album from Warrant, fine album from Trixter. Another easy contest. 

19. HOL were still pretty good then, and Gotthard were just starting to not be. :( HOL easily. 

20. Neither of either band's finest moments, but Loverboy for me in a tight one.

Tate Vs Tate was my favourite!

A bunch of these I hadn't heard, so I couldn't vote on all of them, which meant I couldn't submit my ballot. Oh, well.

I'll definitely include a "Haven't heard either" option on future polls. :drink:

    • Appears to be running fine now. I had to submit another support ticket for them to re-apply the fix that they had done before I upgraded... sheesh.
    • From Frontiers: BREAKING NEWS: Crazy Lixx Announce New Album, "Forever Wild", To Be Released May 17, 2019 Swedish hard rockers Crazy Lixx are back with another gem of an album that harkens back to the best of ‘80s hard rock, while also keeping a foot firmly planted in the 21st century. “Forever Wild” further cements the band's status as one of the leaders of the Scandinavian led hard rock revival, cleverly melding a sleaze/hair metal approach (reminiscent of Motley Crue, Warrant, and Winger) with voracious hooks and melodies. With huge choruses, instantly memorable riffs, wailing, emotive guitar solos, and massive production by Danny Rexon and Chris Laney, "Forever Wild" is sure to resonate with old fans and new listeners alike. Singer Danny Rexon says, "Ruff Justice was the first album where I took on the full role of producer, including recording, engineering, editing and some of the mixing. Naturally, there were things that I learnt along the way and, in retrospect, things that could have been done better. On the new album, I was once again the producer, but this time I brought in a whole lot more experience with me and had a clearer picture of what needed to be done to get a GREAT sounding album. So, you could definitely say that the new album is a natural progression from 'Ruff Justice'. It’s actually the first time in the history of the band where the same band members have recorded under roughly the same conditions, in the same studios, with more or less the same equipment and with the same producer. For the first time, you can hear continuity from one album to the next, so I’d say if you’re a fan of 'Ruff Justice', I bet you’ll enjoy this new album the same, if not even more!" The band explores a wider range of styles than ever before on “Forever Wild”. From the hard rocking and anthemic opening track “Wicked” to the AOR inspired upcoming single “Silent Thunder,” to songs like "Eagle", that sounds like it came off a Bon Jovi album circa 1986, Crazy Lixx manage to blend a love and reverence for ‘80s hard rock with their own unique stamp on each track. Rexon continues, "I think the way the album turned out has a lot to do with the current line-up that we established in 2016. I’ve always been a fan of melodic hard rock and hair metal, but with previous members, we’ve been pulling a bit more in different directions at times, so the result hasn’t always gone towards the goal I’d like them too, certainly not as much as it has on this album. I can honestly say that the way Crazy Lixx sounds today is a lot closer to how I envisioned the band to sound in the early 2010’s (around the time of 'New Religion') than how we actually sounded 5-6 years ago."  With “Forever Wild", Crazy Lixx have set the bar very high against their own revered and celebrated catalog. Their best album yet? We’d say so! Don’t miss Crazy Lixx while they’re on the road in support of the album either, as their live shows are a sight to behold! Danny concludes, “On release day (May 17th), we have an album release show in our hometown of Malmö, along with fellow Frontiers band Creye. I’d recommend this event for all the fans that want to see some new songs live for the first time and get a chance to hang out with the band, get the new album signed, and all that fun stuff. After that, we’re lining up a bunch of summer festivals to kick off touring. I think there is a definite summer vibe to this album and the new songs will really fit well on an outdoor summer festival. Really looking forward to this summer’s shows.”  Tracklist: 1. Wicked 2. Break Out 3. Silent Thunder 4. (She's Wearing) Yesterday's Face 5. Eagle 6. Terminal Velocity 7. It's You 8. Love Don't Live Here Anymore 9. Weekend Lover 10. Never Die (Forever Wild) Line-up: Danny Rexon – vocals  Joél Cirera - drums  Jens Anderson – bass guitar  Chrisse Olsson - guitar  Jens Lundgren - guitar    
    • This is actually an EP (first one of three), not a full-length album. Released March 15th. Samples: amazon.com Tracks: 1. Carousel 2. Taking Me Home 3. Let the Sunshine In 4. Dancing in the Moonlight 5. Love of Mine
    • It's definitely destined to be a top 3-5 finisher, at least.
    • Sounding great,this could well be my chart topper album for 2019 but so much competition still to be unleashed this year...but a great track as usual from these guys.
    • It's all part of Frontiers' new ham-fisted approach to PR
    • Excellent, as usual. Very consistent band.
