I reckon AOR needs a genre specific thread of it's own.

Again, another umbrella term, but still very distinct. 

This album was a completely random pick up for me and responsible for a great memory

Back in the day I picked this up in a bargain bin that contained multiple copies for $5 each (JB, Doggy). I was with my cousin and a mate who were both into this music also. We all decided it was worth the risk at that price, so we all got a copy. It was one of the rare times we ALL came back from buyings CDs happy.

Another fine slice of Aussie AOR...  

One of the finest more recent debut albums in our genre. Flawless.

I shocked that he has done 5 more albums along this one, the last was 2003

He's been around for a while. A lot of writing credits as well.

I'm glad he decided to do this one himself. It smashes the "Chicago" version.

Lou Gramm - I'll Know When It's Over.

Two killer solo albums. I really could listen to this guy all day.

Jimmy Barnes - Waitin' For the Heartache.

One from '87 off Jimmy's best album. Produced by Jonathan Cain, Mike Stone and Desmond Child. Very polished as you'd expect.

This album was his big crack at the US market, featuring heaps of guests including Neal Schon amongst many others.

Great album and big down here, but I don't think he achieved the success in the US he was hoping for.

Jude Cole - Start the Car.

This had moderate commercial success down here in '92 and It's always stuck with me.

I haven't heard anything he's done before or since TBH.

Absolute KILLER!!! album with no filler at all with the superb vocals of Gene Miller. "Tears Don't Put Out The Fire" and "Go Easy" are so much better here than on the debut Alien album IMHO. The only fault i have is the production which is lacking, one of MTM's finest releases.

Bought the Dangerous Music album back in 85 after hearing the Heartline single and man what a disappointment, 1 killer track and the rest was crap.

And on the subject of albums with 1 killer track hear's another. Double Dealer -  Moving Target an album of 11 tracks of which the first 10 are pure shit and then we get track 11 Freedom which is an absolute gem of a song, AWESOME!!!

I haven’t actually checked out that album.. but perhaps I won’t be in a rush now. Shame to hear.

Daryl braithwaite is one of Australia's favourite sons. 

Frontman for the iconic 70s Aussie band "Sherbet".

In 1988 he released his first solo album which included this and several other massive hits down here.

Glad it wasn't horrible cover he does, " Horses ".

Almost every second to third song on radio ( remember them ) is it.

Trivia his ex wife was also Mike Tramp's ex.

Really? That's a spin out. I'll have to see if I can find a Google image.

Jean Beauvoir - Feel the Heat.

My cousin and I were big Stallone fans back in the day, so we loved this track. 

I already had this on the "Cobra" soundtrack and I already had the "Voodoo X" album when I came across his first two solo albums in a second hand store and thought I'd hit the jackpot. 

Unfortunately, they were two of my biggest musical disappointments.

He's redeemed himself of course with "Crown of Thorns".

Yeah, Mike Tramp's ex is named Fleur Thiemeyer, an Aussie, and they have a son named Dylan, but she's not Daryl Braithwaite's ex.

I don't know where you got that from mate.

    • 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.
