OK, 1990 was so damn good, that I couldn't narrow it down to just one 20 choice poll, so I decided to go with two seperate batches! Man, what a year! Commerical monsters from Poison, Ratt, Queensryche, Cinderella, etc...along with high power indies like Friction, Rock Boulevard, Eli, Roxxi, etc... made this one helluva year for hard rockers! :banger:

O......M........G!!!!!! Make it hard, why doncha?????

 

No prob on the first part.........got no further than House Of Lords ~ Sahara...........then damned if I don't see Spread Eagle.

 

Sat here for 10 minutes staring at the second part.....and decided I just can't do it...... :lol:

 

Roxxi, Eyes, Heavens Edge, Theatre, Victory.........

 

Ok.......yes.......I can do it. Firehouse ~ Firehouse.

Another insanely hard choice. My 2 picks would be Blue Tears and Fate, but unfortunately it worked out that these 2 were in different lists. So, with a deep stabbing pain in my ass, I voted for Blue Tears (sorry Fate :()

 

Of the 2nd list I went for Roxxi, for pure consistency of that killer release. Killed me to pass on Victory, Firehouse, Zinatra and Poison. Even Ratt's 'Detonator' was right up there. :(

 

I say it every time, but this was by far the hardest choice. To review, my 2 choices were:

 

Blue Tears

Roxxi

Part 1 was a lot more difficult than Part 2, as I love the Talisman, Nelson,House Of Lords, Y&T and Fate albums, but the winner is:

 

Valentine - Valentine

 

Along with the s/t Solo album, Hugo's finest hour.

 

For Part 2 - Dead easy for me. One of the Finest AOR albums ever to come out of Canada.

 

Boulevard - Into The Street.

Part I~ Queensryche's Empire. At the time, this album was so far ahead of the standard rock coming out. To this day, one of my all time fave albums.

 

Part II~ Eyes' S/T album. This one is killer throughout. Just a solid album and JSS shines. Essential.

Damn Whip, why'd you have to put Firehouse, Love/Hate and Stryper all in the same batch? Oh well...

I picked AC/DC in the first group and Love/Hate in the second group...

I went with Spread Eagle in the first poll. When I first heard that cassette I was completely blown away, played the crap out of it.

 

Chose Roxxi for the second part. That was one of the harder to come by cd's I recently tracked down, but it was definitely worth it.

Unbelievably hard choices..........but I went with:

 

Warrant and Firehouse....but by the slimmest of margins!!!

One very enjoyable CD that you forgot, whiplash, was The (London) Quireboys - A Bit Of What You Fancy. But from the list... wow, can't decide!

 

Probably go with Extreme's Pornographitti, Warrant's Cherry Pie & Baton Rouge's Shake Your Soul (w/c is to me bordering on becoming a children's nursery rhymes, but one hell of an enjoyable album).

 

LOVE/HATE - great album but when the shock has worn out turns out to be just simple sleaze rock.

 

Poison - Flesh and Blood - undeniably great - a totally different band

 

Eyes - Eyes - of course, with Jeff Scott Soto on board, who would argue. One of the best hard rock songwriter.

WOW! What a poll! In my short time on HH this is the toughest yet to pick my fav's!

 

Part I Fate (Scratch N Sniff) in a close race with Valentine (s/t)

 

Part II Roxxi (Drive It To Ya Hard) in anthor close call with Victory Temples Of Gold)

Hey Whip, You need to do another one of these. This was your toughest one yet by far.

I'm looking foward to 1991. :)

Tough poll, part one-It's almost impossible decide for me I went with Fate-Scratch and sniff. My heart is bleeding 'cause I consider Spread eagle,Cherry pie,Wicked sensation,Pornograffitti,Up from the ashes and Ten(Y&T) masterpieces.

Par two, It's easier there are not so many great albums, I went with Winger followed by Ratt and Hurricane.
