Albums you don't remember a thing about

I was a big Hurricane fan. I had the "Take What You Want" EP and that got worn to shreds. And then the killer "Over The Edge"!! I played the crap out of that one too.

So why for the life of me can't I remember anything about "Slave To The Thrill" other than the banned cover art and the title. I sorta remember Dance Little Sister (wasn't that the MTV video for this single?), but I surely can't remember anything else. The song titles don't even look familiar. How did I totally let this slip by me and not flash an eye after my huge admiration of their first two???

And yes, I know "Liquidfury". I just don't see how I lost the Slave album in the shuffle. 

I gotta find it on YouTube and play it through and I'll post my thoughts.

Does this shit ever happen to any of you???

Quite a bit if im honest,I went through a phase for instance where if an album didn't sound like the previous efforts that id liked I pushed it away...for years...Warrant - Dog Eat Dog is a good example...fucking great album but upon release it wasn't what id been used to with them...or so I though until accidently hearing it again a few years later...Vince Neil - Exposed is another because it wasn't Crue I didn't want to know...but its pretty good to my ears.

Plenty others too...like Triumph - Edge Of Excess...love it but didn't back in the day if you know what I mean...another that took years to appreciate :drink:

On the subject of Hurricane - Slave To The Thrill...I absolutely love that album...played the cassette to death  :)

Might be because things got a bit lean in the 90's that I went back and found so many lost gems that I had bought but didn't play,just like you with Slave...did the same with Rox Diamond if I remember rightly,then I listen and ping! something clicks and I ask myself was I really that shallow...obviously was...glad I persisted...although that being said that's how I ended up listening to LostBoys...yeah some things are best left unheard :whistle:

Can't say it does, just wanted to say I love "Slave to the Thrill".  And I wish Kelly would take a break from touring with Foreigner for a couple months and make a new Hurricane album.

Can't say it's ever happened to me with a band/album I like, but this is a pretty good album. It was actually my intro to Hurricane. 'Temptation' would still be in my top 3 Hurricane songs, I think.

I also love "Smiles Like a Child", athough the lyrics in the spoken word part get a little dodgy.

Yeah the whole "I Can't tell if she's 12 or 22" part...dodgy is one word for it I suppose,title also a tad inappropriate and it was written in part by a woman!

So it's by a landslide my fav, I still listen once a week, the station I always talk about KBER 101 in slc, used to play Reign Of Love, that's all it took, excellent disc, went mostly unnoticed, sadly
