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.
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.
