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;

    • An absolute must have album, KILLER!!! stuff...  
    • This whole transgender sport thing is a joke IMO....I mean who really cares who or what is competing in the Olympics these days, most of them are on performance drugs of one kind or another anyway....half the women look like men and some of the men look like women depending on which sport they are competing in....I just don't give a fuck anymore....I watch NHL, MLB and NFL....they can put women or transgender in any of those leagues and I'll have a good laugh....
    • Firstly, thank you for those kind words. I was moved.  Secondly, yeah, the whole transgender sport issue is a disgrace. I honestly can't understand how it's allowed.  Joe Rogan's been calling this shit out from day one.        
    • just feeling very emotional right now, and wanted to let all my HH brothers know how I feel, without being offensive or getting cancelled,  I just wanted to tell you guys that your all Fags and if you were any bigger pillow biters, you'd have to have your wrists permanently set in the limp position, especially you G-Off, I noticed since you met that new guy you dont even come on here anymore, must be getting to much weenie, anyways, your all homos, and queers, and I wouldn't be surprised to find out your all chicks with dicks, especially the wops and nips, but I think your all Crackers so I dont have to bring race into this, well that and im not a dumbocrat, Nolan I dont know if you or G-Off take more weenie, but it would be interesting to compare stats, anyways if you cant tell I had to unload this somewhere since I just got my Twitter account banned for saying that these faggot transgendered people, who are fucking men, should be able to compete against woman, in sports, cause it's pretty obvious nobody who could compete in athletics against their own gender, have to go compete in a lower level, I mean if they ever want to feel victory, isnt that why anyone would want to be a man and compete against a woman? sorry im lost, i cannot even guess the mindset behind that, you can dress like a fag and still compete against dudes, right?
    • Yay! Also one of the best guitarists, you get lots of people that copy Vai, Malmsteen, EVH e.t.c. and do it superbly well but never seen anyone come close to getting Steve Howes style. Although on recent live albums (less said about them the better)  it sounds like he has slowed a lot from his heyday.
