A few months ago I would have agreed with you, but I think it's picking up quite nicely towards the end of the year.

Let's hope we get a few killer releases before Dec. 31st

Even love the label, but Frontiers releasing new titles every month does burn a hole in pocket. As I wrote in my message I sent to you, Dan.

For me its been worse,havent bought half as many releases this year...as for new releases before the year is out...i can't really think of any that im hotly anticipating in any way...apart for the new Cats In Space & AC/DC releases.

It's a yes from me.

Just feel like my 2019 list was much stronger at the top than my 2020 list. 

If I were doing a top 5 list of 2019 and 2020 combined, it would go:

1.  H.E.A.T II (2020)

2. Pretty Maids (2019)

3. Crazy Lixx (2019)

4. Defiants (2019)

5. Eclipse (2019)

So 4 of my top 5 would be 2019 releases.

For me, 2020 just wasn't very exciting at all musically.  Maybe I was just in a bad mood from all the crap that's went on this year.

I'm expecting 2021 to blow the doors off 2020 also.  Should have W.e.t, Midnite City, Maverick, Shiraz Lane, Treat, maybe new Crazy Lixx and I'm sure much more.  Hopefully we really start to see results from all the COVID lockdown stuff and artists having time to work on music.  I have to think some have held back releasing music as there is little point if they can't play live to support it.

Both years have been subpar.

I think 2020 is a tad better at this point thanks to Ac/Dc, Cats In Space, and a few others.

 

AC/DC ? :lol:

did nothing for me

On reflection they are relatively close for me now,what I will say is I'm having a bit more difficulty picking a top 10 this year than last...so maybe that gives me my answer...maybe not

I finally gave Power Up a full listen today.

Innovative? No.

Groundbreaking? Certainly not.

Consistent? Yes.

Enjoyable? Absolutely.

I found myself bobbing along several times throughout. It's quintessential AC/DC IMO.

you basically need 3 albums & 1 live one 

I've never paid them any attention. At all. Which albums are you referring to, if I was to give 'em a try?

Thanks. I make no promises, but if ever do decide to listen to them I'll start there.

    • This one looks like a fun ride....  
    • I keep sticking with the band but my initial thoughts are that this is basically hookless. I sure hope this was just released as the first single cause it is loud and fast and isn't considered the best song on the upcoming album.
    • GENERATION LANDSLIDE (Cold Sweat / Lillian Axe members) – Ruling The Street Scene (2022) online sources · NOVEMBER 28, 2022     Comprising former members of both Cold Sweat and Lillian Axe, Las Vegas’ hard rockers GENERATION LANDSLIDE release their debut album ”Ruling The Street Scene”. Fronted by Anthony White, formerly of Cold Sweat and Cold Gin, GENERATION LANDSLIDE is a whirlwind of ’80s and early ’90s-influenced American-style melodic hard rock, complete with big hooks, singalong choruses and a feel-good vibe that continues throughout the entire ”Ruling The Street Scene”. Produced by White, the album kicks off with the ferocious ‘Little Miss Lonely’, then ‘Feel the Sensation’ follows with heavy gang vocals telling the story of finishing your day job and feeling the anticipation of going wild from seeing your favourite band in concert that night from a spiritual way. ‘Love and Pain’ relates the ups and downs in every relationship and the emptiness of being alone and ‘Are You Out There?’ is a tribute to the late Thin Lizzy bassist Phil Lynott. Highly Recommended   01 – Little Miss Lonely 02 – Feel the Sensation 03 – Nite Time Magic 04 – I’ll Keep Movin’ Along 05 – Love and Pain 06 – Are You out There 07 – Sweet Ellie May 08 – The City on the Edge of Forever 09 – Me in You 10 – Standing in the Rain Anthony White – lead vocals, lead guitar Sandy Stein – guitar Jonathon Swanson – bass Ken Koudelka – drums   BUY www.amazon.com/Ruling-Street-Scene-Generation-Landslide/dp/B0BFBV9HN2
    • Australia 1 Argentina 1 (Aus 5 Arg 4 on penalties) 🇦🇺 🪃 
    • USA 2, Netherlands 1. (*my prediction)
    • Sorry I meant Dance With the Dead        
    • As much as I love the Synthwave genre, I'm not very adventurous towards it. I generally allow the folks here to steer me in the right direction. I don't think I've listened to Dance of the Dead. 
    • I've been coming around. The cream of the crop are good. Issue I have is for every Lebrock or Midnight there are 20 shite artists. But yeah, I have been buying a bit of the best artists. For me, the best synthwave release of 2022 is Dance of the Dead. It is like the soundtrack to a John Carpenter film never made. It really rocks in places too.
