2002 - Choose your album


Recommended Posts

Had to check my ratings for this one because in my mind it was a three way dead heat. And I rated these three albums from 80-82%, so it was justified cause for concern. So, although Def Leppard and Jaded Heart dropped two excellent albums, my pick for the year was-

Harem Scarem.

For the songs it was a three way tie (again) with 'Killing me,' 'This ain't over' and 'End of time.' 

LA Guns and The Donnas worth a mention too. 

Special note is my favourite song of the year is actually on one of these CDs too... and that is actually track 13, 'Forever,' on the Breaking Benjamin album.

Some awesome albums released this year...

Adriangale - Reprogram

Mecca - Mecca 

Def Leppard - X

Harem Scarem - WOTW

Westworld - Cyber Dreams

Vital Signs - Vital Signs

But for me the best album of 2002 goes to Frontline - Against The World. KILLER!!! album from start to finish.

I know people will bag me out but I really enjoyed Audioslave. I thought they had a classic hard rock sound. I liked many songs, but maybe Like a Stone is my favourite.

Unsurprising, but Def Leppard for me.

Have to say again that this album is one that's grown on me over the years as I didn't care much for it when it dropped.  But as I look back now, it basically blows away the albums that came after it IMO (Sparkle and S/T).  At least this album still had a big Def Leppard sound to it even if it was a bit too commercial.

Gonna go with Def Leppard's "X." But a fun album is The Donna's, "Spend the Night." Silly lyrics here and there, but the guitar riffs are super catchy.

    • I must say this is easily one, if not my favorite thread. Got to love these 1 offs and oddities. Wish I cold have them all. Once I get my collection out of jail I may copy you and do a PNW version as sharing is caring.   Thanks for the efforts in this thread Russ much appreciated.
    • I adore those first 2 Kix records honestly, their discography is almost in order of favorites, literally with Midnight at 3 and Blow at 4, Hotwire 5 (but could bundle with Show business, but those first 4, minus Don't Close Your Eyes (that one never did much for me, OK song, but quite skippable) are quintessential. 
    • As much as I love Kix, their first 2 albums are not great. And "In God We Trust" was TRASH.
    • Kix (duh). S/T, Cool Kids, Midnight Dynamite, Blow My Fuse, Hotwire. They really can do no wrong. Kings X (double duh). Into the Silent Planet, Gretchen Goes to Nebraska, Faith, Hope, Love, Self Titled, DogMan, Ear Candy, etc... Enuff Z Nuff has at least 10 albums of worthy material, starting with the S/T, then Animals w/Human Intelligent, easily to and through 10, but easily could include Welcome To Blue Island and album 12 ? (question mark). Stryper. Yellow and Black Attack, Soldiers Under Command, To Hell W/the Devil, In God We Trust, and the EPIC Against The Law. Butch Walker/Floyds Funk Revival/Marvelous 3. Sure its a blend of names but mostly the same guys and from Creamy, to the 3 Marvie records to Butch's Left of Self Centered is a good run, and you could include the 2 Southgang records as that's still Butch, Jay and Slug and depending on how much appreciation you have for Butch you can go to present as he is brilliant.   I also think Metal Church, The Dwarves, Warrior Soul and Nelson fit the bill as well.   I am sure there are many more.
    • Oh wow, that song is awful.  
    • The Carpenters never bugged me but... A few years ago, my wife and I went to see Bill Medley in concert.  Well, actually, we went to see Christopher Cross but Medley was the opening act.  Anyway I digress... Medley performed "I've Had the Time of My Life" as you might expect.  And it was wonderful.  Except...the female duet parts were sung by his daughter.  THAT was a bit creepy.   FWIW, Medley was incredible.  Puts on a wonderful show and sounds amazing.  Then again, so was Christopher Cross.  All in all, a tremendous concert.
    • That version........well, let's just say it's not good.
