Best of 2019 lists posted!


Recommended Posts

Shockingly The New Roses only appeared in one of the also ran lists, same with Donnie Vie, with only 2 also rans.
No rate at all for Taylor Hawkins or Mike Tramp :(
in fact I'd say that the also rans were simply any other album that was heard in 2019

good to see Tesla get a rating
I need to check out buckcherry, I completely forgot about that one. oops.

That is exactly what it is: the rest of the field.

In fact, I say it at the top of the page. It's so people can see which artists each of us heard over the course of the year. People make assumptions that we all listen to everything, but not all of us are exposed to the same material, either through happenstance or intent.

So if an album isn't in my Top 5, Honorable Mentions, or Rest of the Field, it means that I didn't hear it.

I read the lists - always interesting...but they were so mis-aligned to what I thought was top this year I didn't dwell too long.

Mate, just my opinion time, but here it is. To each their own and all that stuff;

I agree with you that the New Roses deserves recognition. Nice album.

However;

Donnie Vie - I know there was a love-fest thread for diehards on this forum, but I seriously doubt that the album received any more praise than what was levelled at it in that thread. Again, I stress this is my opinion, but it was woeful. A piece of shit of an album. In my opinion, of course. And I love early Enuff Z' Nuff. It's not like I have it in for him - in fact, I'd love to love the album. But it's really bad. :(  In my opinion, and to be honest, probably most other people's. ;)

Mike Tramp - I hate saying this because I know the dude's just doing what he loves, but sadly he is just so irrelevant these days - IN MY OPINION - that I feel like he could release 5 CDs a year and no one would care. It's just the same old singer/songwriter stuff for decades now - incredibly bland and unappealing. His current output is the epitome of the kind of stuff that 99% of music fans would just look straight past. Nothing interesting there anymore, sadly... in my opinion, of course. 

Taylor Hawkins? Foo Fighters drummer? Playing some weird jazzy/progressive swamp rock or something? And you expect him to appear on lists in this site? Again, mate, to each their own, but I don't think it's unexpected to see him not appear on any lists on this site. ;)

haha, Geoff,
You don't need to qualify everything by saying its only your opinion.
I'm not going to get butt hurt if people don't like what I like.
The main reason I'm here is to hear new music.
it's the only place I go since Sleaze Roxx closed their forum, and sites before that closed.
Music here varies from what I really like to stuff that's too synth pop for me.
the on the other side of that is the heavier stuff that I don't expect to get a look in so much - Saliva, Five Finger Death Punch etc

Anyway, I only ever mention bands here so others get the chance to hear them who may not have.
If people don't like them, no harm no foul, :)

Never really got around to this in much detail, but thanks for the lists, chaps. I usually like to crown a winner but y'all made it hard as you were all pretty far off the mark. 

I'd probably have to crown Mike the winner for the inclusions of Lovekillers and Pretty Maids. I guess Dan with The Defiants and Eclipse is pretty much equal. 

OK, you both get the award this year and can split it evenly amongst yourselves. One lip each of my e-kiss.

Pete and Jez... Tsk Tsk.

    • Nothing to confirm an album is on the way but they have reunion dates next year and Frontiers used the tag ‘What’s next for Wig Wam? Stay tuned!’.. could mean anything of course but in my opinion this is the first single from a 2021 comeback album.. only time will tell.    I liked 2/3 tracks from Wall Street but I thought the rest was below average. This is up there with the best they’ve done in my eyes. 
    • Always loved the rock anthems they had. This song follows that direction and is a great opener for a reunion.  Did anybody actually say that there will be an album? I could imagine that this is only a single because they had some time during corona. Wall street was their worst album but it still had some good moments. This new song sounds as dark and serious as wall street but with the quality of early Wig Wam. 
    • Guess it shows the hiatus was needed.. Wall Street was a bad album, and I’m a fan of these guys.    I thought the same - I think they’ll still have a couple of ‘fun’ tracks just like Age’s solo stuff, Ammunition and previous Wig Wam albums but it looks like a more serious and less tongue-in-cheek direction.    Definitely looking forward to further info / music. 
    • For people without comorbidities, COVID-19 is not the apocalyptical virus the media makes it out to be. As recently as 3 weeks ago (I think?) the WHO reversed itself, now saying that societal lockdowns are NOT the answer. Great, we crippled the economy and destroyed peoples' jobs for what exactly? Protect/quarantine those in high risk groups, but open up society as a whole IMO. There's a certain segment that wants a 100.00% reliable solution or cure. It doesn't exist. It may NEVER exist. Tens of thousands of people die every year from just the flu and its side effects; we don't shut down the planet for it, and there isn't a 100% cure for it. The cure is proving worse than the disease... literally. P.S. At least here in the U.S., there is a large political component to how COVID-19 is being handled, with the motive of tilting the election. Democrat governors wanting to keep things locked down until after election day and then things will "magically" improve. Pelosi refusing to consider any aid package to the American people until after the election, regardless of how much the GOP is willing to negotiate. She's evil.
    • What are you a fucking idiot? what kind of a fucking bollocks statement is that mate, you must have your head so far up your ass, you can smell your own breath, never talk with that much sense G-Off, you cant let little things like reality and common sense get in the way of Covid, you should know that, now denounce your whiteness, apologize for your white privilege and say 10 hail marys, then we will forgive you.
    • Wow, huge song. Would never have believed they were still capable of that after the way they went off the rails so bad. But that is absolutely killer. Love it.  Will be interested to see what direction they take, lyrically, on the new album. Will it still be a kind of parody/joke thing, or will it be straight up more serious melodic hard rock like this track suggests? 
    • It's what made him famous, and for absolutely perfect reason, folks here is a little known comic, touring on the opey & anthony comedy tour, the previous comic was booed offstage, you've heard of notorious philly crowds, watch what happens when they start booing an unknown Bill Burr, this was legendary, wish it could have been recorded better.  
    • There's a couple of posts of this nature and yes, that's no good. But again, this side of the coin gets well represented, but can we allow some representation for the other side of the coin? Or is this a BLM situation again? Now, I don't have the stats any more than you or Moses or Jesus does. But let's say roughly 44,000,000 people have had this thing at last count. Are we allowed to acknowledge for a second that it is extremely likely that the overwhelming majority of these people have not and will not have lasting health issues? Are we allowed to say that, or are we just going to concentrate on the (probably relatively very small amount of) people that have - for whatever reason - had significant issues with the virus? Who, dare I say, would probably have issues had they had another non-Covid related health issue? I'm just going to pluck one from a hat because he's famous and we all know him, but can we acknowledge that Novak Djokovic had the virus and was then, a few weeks later,  playing tennis in Wimbledon and France at the highest possible level on the planet?  And there will be tens of millions of people that share a similar story to him. So let's please acknowledge this side of the coin before painting a picture that everyone who has had it is doomed for eternity.   I know this covid thing is something we need to acknowledge, but I just can't handle the over-dramatics, for lack of a better term. Yes, it's a part of life now. Like the flu, cancer and a million other ailments. It's there and we all know it. If I am not mistaken, there has never, ever been a vaccine for a coronavirus ever, in history. So there's probably a decent likelihood there may not ever be a vaccine for Covid-19. So what then? We just start every news bulletin with the daily infection rates for the rest of time, until the sun swallows earth? Is that the plan? When do we try to get on with some semblance of life, knowing what we know now?  One day, the human race is going to have to start living some kind of collective life again, with this thing amongst us. It is what it is.  Anyway, fuck it. I can't put into words properly my whole take on the thing. I'm just glad to see/hear I'm not alone. Covid-19 is not a good thing, BUT, in my opinion, the reaction to it has been, and continues to be well and truly disproportionate. I guess, in a nutshell, that's my 2 cents on the thing.  Let the hate commence but I don't really care because I already hate myself for wasting the time it took me to type that.  
    • Awesome isn’t it.. the production sounds improved and loving the heavier guitar tone. Wouldn’t surprise me if Erik Martensson wasn’t involved in some capacity.  Was only a few days back I was watching videos of the Sheffield gig back in 2010 - seriously good live band.
