Great idea. I enjoyed your lists. If I contributed then I  would choose Lynch Mob, but fuck me, that's a lot of work.

Thanks! 

Yeah, I'm on vacation this week! :P :banana:

ok I'll do Journey -

1. Escape

2. Infinity

3. Evolution

4. Frontiers

5. Departure

6. Raised on Radio

7. Revelation

8. Arrival

9. Eclipse

10. Trial by Fire

11. Next

12. Look into the Future

13. s/t

14. Generations

The first 6 are all classics and you can add Captured and Live in Houston...2 of the best live albums ever imo. 

Revelation is a surprisingly great album.

Trial by Fire is pretty boring imo and despite Perry sounding great the album is pretty bland.

Eclipse a lot hated but I think it's got some really cool tracks. A bit more experimental and Schon rocks throughout 

Early Journey does little for me...some great playing on those albums for sure but really not my thing if I'm honest.

I'll try to do mine soon, but also the ones people post too, because I love fun. Can't do Cauterize, or Kane Roberts due to small discographies and/or lack of interest (in Cauterize, lol) but I will do the next best, which is Harem Scarem. But with a discography their size I'll leave that for another night. 

So, first up, I'll do Dokken too. Mike; 'Dysfunctional' and 'LSA' over the solo Don Dokken album is a massive call - one I disagree with strongly, but interesting. ;)

Here's my version;

1. Up From The Ashes
2. Under Lock & Key
3. Back For The Attack
3. Tooth & Nail
5. Erase The Slate
6. Breaking The Chains
7. Lightning Strikes Again
8. Dysfunctional
9. Hell To Pay
10. Long Way Home
11. Broken Bones
12. Shadowlife

 

And the top songs;


1. It's Not Love 

2. Unchain the Night 

3. Just Got Lucky  

4. Down In Flames

5. Change The World 

6. In My Dreams 

7. When Love Finds A Fool

8. Into The Fire  

9. Alone Again  

10. Crash 'N Burn

 

11. So Many Tears 

12. Dream Warriors 

13. Give It Up

14. Voice Of The Soul 

15. Slippin' Away 

16. Lightnin' Strikes Again 

17. Mirror Mirror

18. Heaven Sent 

19. Prisoner 

20. Don't Lie to Me

agree with Up from the Ashes...that would be my fav Dokken too. so good.

Your Journey list is pretty predictable (I totally get 70s Journey not being your bag) but Trial by Fire over Frontiers is a wowser moment for me.

Trial by Fire is so bland imo but Frontiers is amazing and whilst there are a couple of fillers on side 2 there are at least 5 absolute killers imho of course.

Hey man, it's all Dokken, so it's cool. I totally understand why some people prefer the slightly lighter, more "pop metal" sound of UFTA and ULAK over the others... both are GREAT albums as well. Other than Shadowlife and Don's second solo effort, Solitary, I look at all the Dokken releases pretty favorably.  :drink:

Haha, didn't intentionally mean to cause a wowser moment - purely just a numbers thing for me because as you might imagine, I'm not really strongly connected to any of the Journey albums in particular. Let's just say I far prefer the Dokken discography. 

Looking at my scores, the first 6 songs on 'Frontiers' all score quite well, but it takes a massive nosedive for the last 3 songs. 'Trial By Fire' scores pretty lamely across the board but it's quite consistent. In fact, me rating 'If he should break your heart' so high is probably the single element that gets 'Trial by fire' across the line.

But if I thought about it deeper, I would prefer to listen to the 'Frontiers' album. ;) So... let's just call those two a swap around. :)

I've never actually rated any journey albums. I just went on which I would grab first to listen

Frontiers is definitely an album of 2 halves. imo the first 6 tracks are virtually flawless.

I think it is widely accepted that they should have ditched Frontiers and Back Talk and included Ask The Lonely and only the young.

With those swaps it would be no 2 on my list

Lynch Mob for me. I'll just rank the studio albums. No live albums or EPs. Funnily enough my list is in order of release except for "Smoke This" which is an abomination. As big a fan as I am, I can acknowledge that they've never really matched the first two albums. As for songs, that's too hard for me to decide an order so I'll just mention my favourite,  "Hell Child".

Wicked Sensation

Lynch Mob

REvolution

Smoke and Mirrors

Sun Red Sun

Rebel

The Brotherhood

Smoke This

Yeah, I'm absolutely an old school fan. Van Halen is basically their first six records for me. The golden era. The Roth era. A Different Kind Of Truth was a good album though. Suprised me a lot back then.

    • OBITUARY   Christine McVie, Keyboardist and Singer for Fleetwood Mac, Dead at 79 The singer-songwriter was responsible for some of the group's biggest hits like "Don't Stop" and "Little Lies" BY JON BLISTEIN NOVEMBER 30, 2022 English singer, songwriter and keyboardist Christine McVie of rock band Fleetwood Mac, UK, 18th January 1969.EVENING STANDARD/HULTON ARCHIVE/GETTY IMAGES CHRISTINE MCVIE, THElongtime co-lead vocalist, keyboardist, and songwriter for Fleetwood Mac, has died. She was 79.  The band confirmed McVie’s death in a note shared on social media. “There are no words to describe our sadness at the passing of Christine McVie. She was truly one-of-a-kind, special and talented beyond measure. She was the best musician anyone could have in their band and the best friend anyone could have in their life. We were so lucky to have a life with her. Individually and together, we cherished Christine deeply and are thankful for the amazing memories we have. She will be so very missed.” In a statement, McVie’s family said she died today, Nov. 30, at a hospital “following a short illness.” The statement continued: “She was in the company of her family. We kindly ask that you respect the family’s privacy at this extremely painful time, and we would like everyone to keep Christine in their hearts and remember the life of an incredible human being, and revered musician who was loved universally. RIP Christine McVie.”   McVie joined Fleetwood Mac in 1970. She went on to write (and co-write) some of the band’s most memorable songs, including the Rumours classics “Don’t Stop” and “You Make Loving Fun,” as well as “Hold Me,” “Little Lies,” and “Over My Head.” Though she stuck with the band through some pretty tumultuous years, especially during the early Nineties, she left the group after their big 1998 reunion tour. After a lengthy hiatus off the stage and out of the public eye, she returned to Fleetwood Mac in 2014 and was playing with them as recently as 2019. Throughout her tenure in Fleetwood Mac, McVie almost seemed like the calm eye in the middle the storm that was the rest of the band. “That is apparently true, but I didn’t realize that at the time,” she quipped in an interview with Rolling Stone earlier this year. “Yes, I was supposedly like the Mother Teresa who would hang out with everybody or just try and [keep] everything nice and cool and relaxed. But they were great people; they were great friends. McVie was born Christine Anne Perfect on July 12, 1943, her father a concert violinist and music professor, her mother a psychic medium and faith healer. Perfect started playing piano as a child, studying classical music until she was a teenager, at which point her interests turned blues and rock and roll.  TRENDING How Trump Got Trolled by a Couple of Fascists Organ-Devouring ‘Liver King’ Blasted by Bodybuilders Over Alleged Steroid Use Christine McVie, Keyboardist and Singer for Fleetwood Mac, Dead at 79 Adam Sandler Let His Daughters Write His Gotham Awards Speech — And They Absolutely Roasted Him   She played in a variety of bands during the Sixties, forming the most notable one, Chicken Shack, with Andy Silvester and Stan Webb, in 1968. Chicken Shack released a pair of albums with Perfect — 40 Blue Fingers, Freshly Packed and Ready to Serve and O.K. Ken — and her rendition of Etta James’ “I’d Rather Go Blind” cracked the Top 20 in the U.K. in 1969.      This story is developing…    
    • My first live experience was D-A-D on April 22, 1995, at a venue which had a capacity of 6000 people. It was on their Helpyourselfish tour, and every song from that album was included on a setlist consisting of 24 songs. They were at the height of their career both musically and popularity-wise. I've seen them about 15 times, but this April night was something special.  
    • I thought you hate Synthwave. Why did you buy The Midnight?
    • shame you missed Skid Row. They were great back then 
    • Almost impossible to separate my top 10 as most could easily swap position (especially 1 & 2 !!). But I gave it a go. 1. Threshold - Dividing Lines Only just recently released but this was always going to be a huge album for me. 5 yrs since the release of Shires but the wait was worth it. This is a masterpiece in my opinion - melody, lyrics, vocals, musicianship, hooks all amazing. 2. Ghost - Imperia For a long while this was top of the pack and was definitely my most listened to album of 2022. The last 2 Ghost albums were amazing and this is no different. Great production, arrangements - this something really different and unique. Best gig of 2022 as well - their show at London O2 was stunning 3. Muse - Will of the People Biggest surprise of the year. Never would have imagined that a Muse album would feature in my best of list let alone end up no 3!! Easily their best album to date , love every track. Short at just 37 mins, but I love that. No filler, all killer album. Brilliant lyrics and subject matter as well 4. VHS Collection - Night Drive Never has an album title been so accurate. This album is made for night time driving - just an awesome vibe, brilliant songs. Top job all round 5. Alter Bridge - Pawns & Kings Monumental metal album. Dark, deep lyrically, crunching Tremonti riffs. Love it. 6 Kissin Dynamite - Not The End of the Road Another surprise for me. Never been the biggest KD fan but man they nailed it on this. Barely a filler in sight and easily the best pure melodic rock album of 2022 7. Degreed - Are You Ready Another top quality album from one of my fav bands. Really hate the song Radio though which keeps this out of the top 5 8. Dan Reed Network - Let's Hear it for the King I do dearly love this album, and agonised a bit over its placing, but the albums above are just too good. Massive return to form and I pretty much love every track with 'I See Angels' probably bring my fav ballad of 2022 9. Cats in Space - Kickstart the Sun Another album which could be top 5 on any given day. Just a couple of weaker tracks pull it down slightly but stuff like the title track & Smoke & Mirrors are top drawer. Brilliant vocals as well. 10. Iron Allies - Blood In Blood Out Late addition to my top 10 but my God this album is awesome! Best thing Reece has been on in years and old school metal album of the year imo. Just crunching metal and sensational solos. Go to gym album So now we come to honourable mentions - in no order - all v good albums in their own right : Reckless Love - excellent attempt at synthwave Chez Kane - another great 80s throwback Skid Row - Erik breaths new life into old dogs Palace - great bunch of feel good songs Crashdiet - best album since GW Treat - more great modern melodic rock Black Swan - better than the debut Ultraboss - v nice synthwave album Ronnie Atkins - Bit of a dip but still v nice Young Gun Silver Fox - best Westcoast 2022 Do there you go, 20 great albums which I would recommend. I really good year in music with a few surprises for me. 👍
    • Up until 2007 only local bands performing cover songs. 2008, my first ever international experience and it was an awesome one. It was Mr.Big's reunion tour. 
    • New video for 'LARP'. From Frontiers: Infinite & Divine, a collaboration between two Swedish musicians, guitarist/songwriter/producer Jan Åkesson and vocalist Tezzi (a/k/a Terese Persson), will release their sophomore album, "Ascendancy" on February 10, 2023.  In the summer of 2019, Jan and Tezzi first encountered one another and shortly after that set to work on writing songs for what would ultimately become their debut album, ”Silver Lining”. Said album was a fantastic combination of Jan’s energetic heavy riffs, the influences of their varied taste in melodic hard rock and metal, and Tezzi’s melodic, yet powerful vocals. "Ascendancy" sees the two taking that songwriting formula and building upon it to craft an even more thrilling and energetic album, highlighting all their strengths.  Terese "Tezzi" Persson started her musical career doing local troubadour gigs at the age of 17, but before that had already started writing her own songs and lyrics. Over the years, she has appeared in different musical projects both as a lead singer in metal and progressive rock bands, as well as doing backup vocals for various Swedish artists. In 2013, she also appeared on the second album, “Fantasmagoria,” from Epysode (featuring Mike Lepond of Symphony X, Simone Mularoni of DGM, and Tom Englund of Evergrey among others). In 2021, she partnered up with four other stunning lead vocalists in the pop metal outfit Venus 5, whose self-titled debut album was released in June 2022.  Jan Åkesson started out as a songwriter while also appearing as lead guitarist in several bands, before he decided to step back from the live scene to focus on writing and producing songs. He started the band StoneLake, who released seven studio albums, while at the same time writing songs for other artists around the world, all who were performing different styles of music. In 2017, he also released the album ”Ascension” by his solo project Shadow Rain.  The band’s music is extremely tasteful, and the listeners will enjoy very good moments with songs as “I Feel Alive” (a modern feeling similar to what can be found on AMARANTHE’s works, but with precious melodies and great vocals), the 80’s hooking melodies of “Infinite & Divine” and “Not Too Late”, the melodic Hard Rock appeal shown on “Wasteland” and “We Are One”, the tender and precious harmonies of “You and I” and “While You’re Looking for Love” (this one has the same appeal of heavier songs of DEF LEPPARD’s “Hysteria”) are the ones to become the favorite tracks for the fans. But the entire album is great, so enjoy it. - Metal Temple “Silver Lining” runs the proverbial gamut, touching upon a bevy of metal subgenres while delivering consistently memorable riffs and some pretty impressive lead work. For her part, Persson's vocals elevate much of the material here, adding a soulful, 'human' quality.... - Sonic Perspectives ‘Silver Lining’ is an absolute powerhouse of an album and well worth a listen. - Metal Planet Music Tracklisting:1.

    • First gig was Motley Crue at Birmingham NEC in 1989 with White Lion & Skid Row supporting. I was 14. My 2 uncle's took me so I knew a few weeks in advance and was listening to 'Dr Feelgood' & 'Girls, Girls, Girls' in prep. We didn't arrive in time to see Skid Row. I didn't know them at the time or thus what i was missing. This was the show were Vince through a tantrum and threw his mic into the crowd and walked off - though he/they did return to finish. https://www.setlist.fm/setlist/motley-crue/1989/nec-arena-birmingham-england-2bd7446a.html
    • Growing up in the mountains in the middle of nowhere, there was no concert scene, and only classical music was permitted to be played in my house, so it wasn't until I left for college in 1984 that I had an opportunity to see any acts... but that first year was a good one. Over that Thanksgiving break I stayed with a guy in Michigan where I got to see Armored Saint and Whitesnake opening for Quiet Riot (RIP Kevin Dubrow). The following summer back in PA I went to what is to date the biggest concert event I've ever attended: Live Aid at JFK Stadium in Philadelphia. Physically, the most miserable concert experience ever, as it was almost 100 degrees and I got dehydrated and sunburned like a mofo. That was the first time I ever saw huge video screens (where they played the acts performing at Wembley Stadium in the UK). When I went back to college that fall semester, I saw Y&T opening for Motley Crue on the Theater of Pain tour at Richfield Colisseum in Cleveland. It's both a shame and a good thing that cellphones with cameras didn't exist to capture the events... -Dan
