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, :)

    • Weakest resonse I expected as your explanation to how we got here. Look in to some science. Start with black holes, of dark matter. Look at an overview of them, and if you read the right stuff you'll get a vague uneducated explanation of them (like I did) they kind of make some sort of sense. Then if you can be bothered look at the big bang theory and see if it starts to make some sort of sense. It's not a bunch of blokes around a file coming up with this stuff, and the BBT is widely accepted for some good reasons. Go back 200 years and tell someone that you know picture will travel from a camera device to a box in your lounge room and they would laugh at you. Look at how brainwaves work. Surely you agree that there are nerve cells that transport information, but can you explaing it? probably not (I can't) but that doesn't make it any less plausible. I mean, if you have a reason why the BBT is rubbish, other than your lack of understanding of it, then maybe your opinion would hold some merit.
    • Probably true, which in turn encourages illegal downloading. Interesting that the whole music industry screwed themselves by sooking rather than being proactive when Napster started. now they still haven't learnt and perpetuate the problem. In years to come it won't be such an issue as spotify etc have an endless library of songs and already its pretty cheap. I mean if I campare my family plan (AUD $3ea per month) to what I used to spend on physical CD's, it's no comparison. Also, I'm kind of over having to have the physical thing in my hand these days. Probably time to sell off my CD collection (for whatever it's worth these days)
    • Extensive listening to this album done. I love it. It's their best one yet. As I've said, I love the harder and heavier HEAT. The only song I don't like is Nothing To Say, but then I don't generally like ballads and have to be in s certain mood to like them, so I usually skip that one.  Apart from that, there's not a filler on here. My favourites are all of them. 
    • so you believe that from a pin prick of nothing there was an almighty explosion which created enough matter to create a universe which is billions of light years across and contains 100 billion galaxies.  nice. good for you. How about a massive 'we don't know' rather than this bollocks.  as for faith....believe what u want. Just don't hold your breath when you pop off. now getting back to reality I have a life to get on with. laters 
    • Hey Russ, wanna know how to curb this issue? tell them you introduced your nephew to heroin, wait a few days, then say you were just fucking with her, after that, weed won't even be kind of a big deal. Plus!   YOU SMOKE WEED? WTF, im telling
    • Hey G-Off, ya know that one dude Otis?
    • These "Monsters of Rock" cruises sound epic. What's the male to female ratio? 
    • Funny how it's usually beneficial to wait a few years before purchasing an album. 
    • I'll respond on behalf of Stefan: you're welcome. 
    • "Billy Thorpe and the Aztecs" (a legendary Aussie band) released a song in 1964 called "Mashed Potato". It was a cover, but still managed to reach top 10 nationally at the time. When it comes to songwriting, sometimes less is more.
