I think the new release by STATION might just sneak on to a few lists. It will be a late entry as it will not be released until November.

Going to be tough to compile a Top 10. This year has been bog average.

Was looking back and actually forgotten quite a few that were released this year. It’s hard to think of a single album that I keep going back to time and time again.

my top 10 will be pretty strong....after that the quality drops off a cliff.

Mind you I suppose in 2019 we should be glad of 10 great melodic rock releases. It could be worse....it could be the mid to late 90s ;)

Been giving this a little thought....Think my top 5 is pretty strong but the next 5 are all just pretty average releases that probably wouldn't even make my top 10 in some other years.

Not sure on the order of my top 3 yet but will be Crazy Lixx, Defiants and Pretty Maids in some order.  Then likely Eclipse and Degreed rounding out the top 5.

Next 5 in some order are probably Station, Nitrate, Roxy Blue, Tesla and Saints of Sin.  I still might try to go back and check out some stuff I've missed from this year though so this "next 5" could easily change.

Seem like good releases but TBH none of those have seemed to do much for me.  I kinda view them all as kind of lighter AOR that just doesn't seem to really grab me.  I need a little edge in my AOR....Kinda like Defiants, H.e.a.t, etc. 

Work of Art I've tried multiple times and just don't care for at all.

Haven't looked overly close at the other two although I know I sampled the singles when they came out and didn't care for them enough to go much farther.  Maybe I'll revisit.

Yeah the lists are for defs gonna be different this year from person to person if the likes of Tesla & Roxy Blue are in them ;) 

Will have to go through exactly what I have that was released this year,if I didn't buy it then it's never making the list,although there are quite a few I did purchase that won't make it either  :)

The Defiants and Work of Art are fantastic imo.

I don't bother rating anymore.

Let me know what you think of the Donnie Vie?

I liked it

9 really great tracks off that one

My current top albums

1. Cats In Space
2. The New Roses
3. Tesla
4. Donnie Vie
5. Mike Tramp

Sammy Hagar's again was average with only 3 great songs
Just saw a new Taylor Hawkins album is out so that should be good
Also SOTO, Station, First Signal, and Black Ouk County to give more time to as well.

Ever?
They've had some great stuff.
Start with Love Song :)

haha, their latest was pretty good, surpeised me actually.
There were 7 great tracks on it.

Many ripped into being to Def Leppardy, but that disappeared pretty quickly and the songs became their own.
For me, one of their best albums, just need an open mind for it.

Listened to SOTO a few more times and it's pretty average overall.

With JSS, I tend to prefer the ballady songs.

Off this one I only really dug HyperMania, AfterGlow and Give In To Me (a cover)

Pretty much agree with these being the Top releases so far

Work Of Art

Queensryche hasn't held up well for me

I really love Suicide Bombers new disc

CrashDiet was a colossal disappointment for me

    • Make Love Like a Man - Def Leppard.   Released as a single from "Adrenalize". I've always hated it. Easily the worst DL song IMO.
    • Thanks mate. I don't know why I was having trouble finding it.
    • what a weird album.  The first 4 tracks are all great and exactly what I want to hear from TMF. then 2 gigantic fillers absolutely kills it imo.  the album in the second half loses momentum - 2 or 3 solid songs at best before a strong end in winner takes all. overall I think the Defiants is much better and teds last solo offering was awesome. I do like those first 4 tracks tho   
    • Seems like they stuck with the same gritty approach to production but it sounds a lot better than the debut. I'm digging this one!
    • I do like the song itself, but I would agree it's such a drastic change in pace that it disrupts the flow quite a bit.  I probably would have swapped that with 'Look Into Me' and placed it near the end of the album.
    • An evolution on the debut in the sound and production...more mature...more Defiants like😂 The title track sure crashes the momentum after the first four awesome tracks.     
    • Ok now that I have listened to it several times, this is my favourite song and it's a beauty. The last track on the album 'Last Train'. You get the vibe of Los Angeles and Sunset in one song. One of the best songs I have heard so far in 2020.    
    • It’s an anti “best of” list.  Songs that were big hits or band’s signature tracks that to be honest are not a favourite of yours...you can’t even add them to a “best of” mix on your phone or on a CDR...and some just down right suck!   Headed For A Heartbreak- Winger (so boring!) Wanted Dead Or Alive - Bon Jovi (Dead please!) Dude Looks Like A Lady - Aerosmith (awful!)..Rag Doll was even worse Cherry Pie - Warrant (not a bad song but the majority of the rest of the album is way better) Mr. Roboto - Styx (I still can’t forgive Dennis for that mess) More Than Words- Extreme (I like the song but damn that was so not the Extreme sound in general...my dad thought it was the Everly Brothers) When The Children Cry - White Lion (I cry because I can’t take it anymore...too sappy) Pretty Fly For A White Guy - The Offspring (nice sell out boys) Enter Sandman - Metallica (It’s almost become a jingle and was so over played) Silent Lucidity- Queensryche (I saw them live and they ended the concert with this one...talk about not leaving the show on a high)
