Ok, 1991 wasn't as good as the preceeding years IMO, but there were still some great releases that year. :)

 

 

Unfortunately, late in 1991, the music world would change forever, as a trio from Seattle would strike it big with their "Nevermind" CD...the "hair band" era was coming to an end.... -_-

I was gonna be a sarcastic prick and ask "Hey, where's NEVERMIND?" but you already addressed that topic, Whiplash, so... well... never mind. ;)

 

Voted for Ozzy's No More Tears in the first group and Skid Row's Slave To The Grind in the second group. Though if Kix's Hot Wire had been in the second group, that would've gotten my vote. (Everybody follow that?Good.)

1st goup: Tyketto - Don't Come Easy- This is still one of my favs of all time

 

2nd group: Skid Row- Slave to the Grind- This proved to the world that the Skids were not just another hair band.

I chose Kix and Skid Row.

 

I'm also trying to figure out who Love Life is. Did I miss something?

 

 

From reading over at the main site it appears that Love Life is a Christian Metal group.

I've never heard or them but according to some of the comments over there they sound like Slaughter and Skid Row.

I suppose the inclusion of Love Life was kind of a "vanity" pick for me, since I love that release. :P

Love Life had a sound VERY much akin to Slaughter...later on, they morphed into the band known as Fear Not, and leaned more into the early Skid Row direction, but still with the "Slaughter-ish" vocals.

Both bands and their CDs are well worth checking out if you've never heard them, :banger:

I went with Love Life from the first set (Rick--PM me, you've got to hear them! (If you like bands like Slaughter that is)).

 

Second set I went with Kane Roberts just barely over McQueen Street.

 

And Whip you mentioned it in your first post above but as I got half way down the first set I thought "Uh, these aren't exactly earth shattering releases, are they".

Sad (and normal, for me) as it is to say, I'm not familiar with enough to know too many of those choices. So, for that reason more than anything, I chose GNR on the first list (if for no other reason than "Don't Cry" was on it and it was a very special song in college for me and a lovely young lady).

 

Second list I chose Harem Scarem (come on, with my SN, how could I not?), but only slightly ahead of Skid Row.

Tyketto because MJ said so. Actually it is a very awesome record and don't let her sway you......

 

 

Danger Danger for the next as Slipped her the Big One is stellar as is Monkey Business....and so on. Great band.

Went with 'The Storm' from the first section although love the Tyketto & Shadowking discs nearly equally.

 

The second section was a lot more difficult to choose from, what with Bad English, Aldo Nova's mighty fine 'Blood On The Bricks', but the winner is:

 

Harem Scarem - S/T - Superb album and one they have never bettered IMHO.

Idle Cure - Inside Out

Sorry, most of those aren't even a blip on people's radars when they think of the "best" from 1991.

About the only one that probably should have been included was Steelheart - S/T, as alot of people do love that album. I doubt if many of these would have gotten more than 1-2 votes overall if they'd been mixed in with the polls as they are. The 30+ choices given is probably too many as is, given the overall mediocrity of the year...

I agree with Steelheart and Badlands for sure. Ray Gillan and Mike Metijevic are two of the best vocalists of the hard Rock genre.

All I'm saying is that it may not been a great "hit" year but there are still a lot of solid albums from 91. Sure it is no 1990 or 1989 as there are not really earth shattering albums but there are a ton of solid albums that are an easy 7.5-8.0 rating.

I've noticed that you've been spinning that one quite often lately.

That's also a personal fav of mine.

"Sex, Drugs, Rock n Roll" is a great song, as is every other song on that one.

I had SECOND COMING on cassette back in the day but the tape crapped out years ago, and I only recently got a CD copy... it had been so long since I'd heard it that it was like listening to it for the first time all over again! F**king GREAT album!! Now I can't get it the hell outta my player!

    • It is definitely flashdance. I can't unhear it now.
    • Everyone I have spoken to from cities are shitting themselves over this Omricon variant. I say to them "don't you want things to go back to normal?". But they really don't. They are loving living in a police state. I have spoken to a number of ex-prisoners as well who have similar thoughts about jail. I think a lot of people are wired to like having freedom and choice taken away from them. They enjoy having fewer options. It is bizarre to me.
    • the first song wasn't the clip I heard - this sound more promising to me https://www.facebook.com/100764135031478/posts/426269785814243/  
    • mmmm. Erik great, verses great, solo typical but still good, chorus suspect.  Am I the only one who hears Flashdance in the chorus 🤔 🤣🤣🤣
    • I am not here to convince any of you the Way. I believe everyone has the means and now makes their choice as per free will. Yet , isn't it amusing (well it is to me) how fundamentalist atheists are in their certainty. And I guess that is why you are so intolerant to other beliefs. There is no room for doubt in your minds. You feel you know all the answers and that there are no mysteries outside of your understanding. Though you are just a speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant and then believing that is the entire knowledge of the elephant. Good luck with that. 
    • Yeah, I mean that's a fair call. This is what people originally were concerned about and it's gradually happened and not many people have really noticed or cared. Tracking everyone everywhere they go. (if you scan in  )
    • I think generally that this new "threat" is being taken with a grain of salt. I'd like to think so anyway. Regardless, by the time we all say ENOUGH, the new powers put in place by ALL Governments and new "digital ID's" and tracking apps will be well established.  Well played, the powers that be, well played. 
    • New video for ”Lost In The Night”.    
    • I had a couple of videos recommended on youtube today so I looked at them. One was an interview with the doctor in South Africa who "discovered" and diagnosed the new variant, and she spent the entire interview saying how mild it was, and that the patients hadn't even actually shown any symptoms with the variant. The other video I watched was a mainstream, panic-endorsed media interview with two "top doctors" who both said that if this variant is as mild as suggested it is actually better to let it spread and become the dominant strain of covid.  The problem is, that around these two things, as soon as the hosts/reporters start talking, they're back in full panic mode, asking if borders should be shut, countries locked and doing their best and hardest to make sure that panic and hysteria is returned as soon as humanly possible.  So I want to know when a law can be passed where people in public positions that spread panic can be shot on the spot. That's my ideal wish, but in the real world of 2021, when are these panic merchants going to be stood down from their positions? It seems like this new variant is absolutely nothing at all that anyone anywhere should be worried about, and if you believe the "top doctors," spreading it should be embraced. So how does this whole panic hysteria storm get whipped up in the space of a few days? And why aren't people being held accountable for whipping up this madness and stopping actual life from ever continuing again?   For anyone interested, the two clips I saw were these-
