Insomnia led to me spinning their first 4 discs in succession last night.

What a band they were!! For me at least, I don't think I skipped a single song.

Their debut was solid but it's "Love + War" where they really started to be killer. This is a case where each release absolutely got better.

"Love + War"  was better than the debut. "Poetic Justice" was better than "Love + War". "Psychoschizophrnia" was better than "Poetic Justice".

I really wish we would have gotten one more Ron Taylor fronted disc after "Psycho". A real shame.

I do love most of "Field's Of Yersterday" too.

Stevie was a blazing mfer on those first 4 discs.

Awesome band!

Love + War is my favourite (Show A Little Love, Down On You, She Likes It On Top, My Number.. so good) closely followed by Poetic Justice. Took me a while to appreciate that album but yeah, it rocks. Great live band too. 

Killer song -

Lillian Axe was at the time my favourite band. Poetic Justice might be the best produced and greatest guitar sound on any album I’ve ever heard. Love & War was a bargain bin purchase in 1990...based only on the cover. Turned out to be one of the greatest releases ever...like Hysteria this album has so many epic classic tracks, this album deserved to be a massive hit. The debut was solid, sounded like a Ratt album especially with Robyn Crosby’s involvement. Psycho...was the bands last great release...a change in sound to what we see today from them started on this release. Like Poetic Justice such a well produced and beautifully sounding album...which includes two of the best ballads ever. 
 

In my eyes and to my ears, only Metallica with Lightning, Masters and Justice has another band released such a massive trifecta of releases like Lillian Axe did with Love & War, Poetic Justice and Psycho...

Love & War is one of my favourite albums ever , such a great disc with so many great songs , my favourite by Lillian Axe for sure ,like the 3 others from their first 4 but after Psycho I lost interest...still have Fields Of Yesterday but the change afterwards in style didnt appeal to me nor the change of singer...but Love & War is a classic...picked it up on cassette just after release for about £7 for the same reason as some...the cover...which I also have the tshirt for  :)

Ah man, chills sent rippling down the spine listening to 'The day I met you.' Been probably over a year since I've spun that - regrettably. Such an amazing tune. 

As is 'World stopped turning' above - one of my personal favourites too. 

Anyway, I can only echo what everyone's said here. Four killer albums and a band that were completely unstoppable in their prime. Nothing that's happened since will ever be able to take the gloss of how awesome these guys were. While we're dropping killer tunes;

    • AWESOME!!! album...      
    • Yes he is, awesome vocalist.
    • Your last two posts in this thread have been very well written. Nice job mate. I'm assuming you wrote them yourself as you haven't cited any sources. 
    • Twisted Sister star Dee Snider has ripped into guitarist Jon Schaffer for his role in the riot at the U.S. Capitol in January, calling the Iced Earth star an “embarrassment to the metal community.” Schaffer pleaded guilty to charges of obstruction of an official proceeding of Congress and trespassing on restricted grounds of the Capitol while armed with a deadly or dangerous weapon during a hearing on Friday, as part of a plea deal to minimise his jail time. He has also entered into a co-operation agreement with government agents. On Sunday, We’re Not Gonna Take This singer Snider took aim at his fellow rocker, calling him a “PIECE OF S—” on Twitter. “First he shames us with his terrorist actions in DC, and THEN he becomes a rat to his own people for a lighter sentence!” Dee raged. “MAN THE F— UP! Own your s—! If you do the crime, do the time!” And when one of Dee’s Twitter followers defended the guitarist, writing, “At least he had the balls to stand up for what he believes in!!!!!” Snider fired back: “How do you feel about him being the first to plead guilty and co-operating with the Feds to lessen his sentence? Not what I call stand up.  Schaffer was initially charged with six crimes, including engaging in an act of physical violence and targeting police with bear spray. In his plea agreement, Schaffer acknowledged he is a founding lifetime member of the Oath Keepers, a group of U.S. patriots associated with militias.
    • thats weird, u can see the red on the cover above
    • No.  Mine was exactly like this one on Amazon, which also shows the band name as just "Siren" on the CD itself: https://smile.amazon.com/All-Forgiven-Siren-Red/dp/B000008JUS/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&keywords=red+siren+cd&qid=1618873283&sr=8-2
