interesting read.

I swear Jez compiled the longest honourable mentions list ever 🤣🤣👍

Yeah, were we really waiting for Dan to complete his write-ups for his Top 5, or for Jez to compile his Honourable Mentions?

Also, thank God someone put Page 99 on their list. But what the hell is TOBB, and why don't I know about them?

Yeah, thanks for the lists. Always find something in there I've missed through the year. Looking forward to digesting it all and declaring my annual winner.

Well aside from Jez including nearly every album released in his honourable mentions 😳,  for me I think Mike was the winner this year, albeit he did include Platforms which was a 2020 release ;)

Although I agree it's brilliant so why not include it every year :)

Also I've seen a few mention The Pretty Reckless. 

Any fans of that album should check out Paralandra which is actually far better

So did Jez. 

His reasoning being it was released in physical format last year.

Hmmm, very interesting read. Got a few albums to check out from it. None that I think will change anything for me, but some moderately interesting ones. 

Anyway, the clear winner for this year is, as Glen said, Mike. Congrats, Mike, an e-lick is on it's way. 

I must add, though, that Jez actually get a special bonus point this year for being the only one, out of all dudes, to actually mention LeBrock. Not even in the other dudes' also-rans. 

I totally, 100% get that this pure synthwave thing isn't for everyone, but by the same token I think LeBrock has far, far more to do with the AOR / melodic rock we love, than some new made up genre. So yeah, gotta admit I'm a bit surprised that a lot of y'all don't appear to have even given it a try. It's obviously the best album from 2021, and I think you've missed a gem there. 

IMO,

Of course. ;)

So many very good/great albums deserving of a mention.

About tue only time I look at the main site.

I click on the posted songs that I don't know.

This time I ended up with around 5 new bands to check out.

I try, but It's so hard to keep track of everything and these lists are a nice bookend to the year.

I inexplicably missed the "Big City" and "King Zebra" releases. 

As for who the "Winner" is, I think when it comes to these lists, we're all winners.

That sounds as corny as fuck, but it's the truth.

    • My CD arrived. Gotta say it is one of the cheapest, shittiest packaging of a cd I have seen. It is just a double panel with a disk (no tray). No booklet, no lyrics, very little info. printed. Terrible artwork (as you can see above). Glad I only paid $17 as it isn't worth more than that presentation wise. Musically I have only listened once so far so will reserve judgement until then. Note - Jack Jones only played on one track, the lead single. But he is touring with the band.
    • Slash - 4 The Midnight - Heroes Thirty Days Out - Thirty Days Out  Journey - Original Album Classics (Journey, Look Into the Future, Next) Every Day Life - American Standard 
    • Brilliant tune... reminds me of prime MSG, to be honest. Maybe a slight 'Anytime' vibe? But a magnificent song.  But the song I've had in my head all week is '100 thousand years.' Man I love that one. I rated this album fairly earlier in the year, but with a bit of a jumbled year of listening I haven't concentrated too much on albums this year. Listening to everything now, and I have to say that this album stood out as one I maybe did not give it's due credit. Those two songs are excellent, and I also like 'Get Away' and 'Crash & Burn' of the rest. Some nice gear on here. 
    • Exactly. Same goes for Sunstorm.
    • They're solid and consistent... just missing a bit of something to make them stand out for me, personally. The album is solid, like their other stuff. 
    • ADV wrote most of the debut. but that was before he burned himself out writing another 4000 songs of course the main problem is it isn't Revolution Saints. If you still want to showcase DC pick some more band members and call it something else but don't pretend its Rev Saints anymore. 
    • I don't have as much disdain for Del Vecchio as some do, but I can't help but feel like this sounds very... generic in an ADV kind of way? It's not that it's a bad song by any means, it's just that I've only listened to it once, but it feels like I've heard it about 300 times because it sounds like so many other songs Del Vecchio has produced. Secondly, since they've outright admitted that Revolution Saints was meant as a vehicle to showcase Castronovo, without Jack Blades and Doug Aldrich, I'm a little puzzled as to why they didn't just make a Deen Castronovo solo record instead. Surely at this point, anyone familiar with Frontiers, melodic rock music and especially Revolution Saints knows who he is.
