Used Records - Same 1994 (Aor)

I wasn't so impressed on this one as i decided to track it down after hearing some good comments about it,a matter of tastes i guess but IMO this is simple and plain AOR with some songs having Huey Lewis & The News and also 38 Special as main influences,not a complete waste of album but not to go and kill your mama to have it ...some decent tracks are "Three Way Heartbreak","Fly Like The Wind","Hard Enough To Love Her","A Way To Know","Modern Ways" & the bonus track "Sometimes Wrong"..

The Nuns - Desperate Children 1990 (Melodic Rock) 256@ USA

Two guys... two gals... and one other member not included in the band shot on the rear cover. I heard these guys compared to Vxn... I don't think so! Its a right mish mash of different styles ranging from Poison Dollys style hard pop rock, hard rock with a Goth/Psyche feel, and some melodic rock with naff male vocals. But I like this: particularly the female led tunes.But then I have a fairly eclectic taste in music. If you don't...approach with extreme caution!It seems The Nuns were actually formed in the late 70's and were a punk rock band, releasing an album in 1980 (Thank You HOMERO 69)

Grand Slam - Inside Or Outside 1993 (Hard Rock) Japan

Albums like this, Tanner and Ladies Room shit me. This is absolutely top class, awesome riff driven melodic hard rock, but I don't know what's being sung! The music on this is so superb and worth keeping for fans of hard rock music, and some of the choruses are in English, but the majority of this is in Japanese, which I don't understand, so can therefore not appreciate it for what it's truly worth. Killer music and recommended for those who understand Japanese.geoff

David Roberts - The Demo Collection Disc 1 & 2 (Westcoast/AOR/Melodic Rock)

You already know, the owner of the best AOR album of all time "All Dressed Up" in 1982, but now with the demos that were not included in that album and some recorded since the early 80s until 2008, exccepción "Stay With Me Tonight".

RE UP / DISC 01 & DISC 02 

Portrait - St 1990 (Hard Rock)


Player - Lost In Reality 1996 (WestCoast AOR)


The Nuns - Rumania 1986 (New Wave) Usa


Honeymoon Suite - HMS Live 2005 (AOR) Canada

As for "HMS Live" DVD, the quality is awful! Moreover, it seems that Johnnie lost his voice! It doesn’t look like singing! He just screams! During the concert he walks from one part of stage to another one, so that looks very silly and unprofessional! I think they should better release on DVD any of their live from 80’s. That would be great! (Mr.Pumpkin)

Steel Breeze - Heart On The Line 1983 (AOR) US

Ric Jacobs is not the vocalist on this one. It's KEVIN CHALFANT, freshly de-planed from 707. Style-wise, more of the 707 "Mega Force" Survivor-esque AOR, which makes this the best of the 4 Steel Breeze releases(koogles)

Mirage - Angel Ardiente 1992 (Melodic Rock) Mexico

One of the rarest cds (not) around today! This band came from Mexico but recorded their cd in California in 1992. Talk about hooks, if song #4 doesnt make it want to listen to it over and over again, nothing will. Sung in spanish but using the universal language of rock as best as it can be used.

Vixen (2) - Made In Hawaii EP 1983 (Hard Rock) US

This is the story of one of the biggest names in heavy metal. This lady was quite well known, especially in the undergroundscene. Names like ALOHA, VIXEN, HAWAII, MALISHA may sound familiar to some of you readers. This is the story of KIM LA CHANCE.
It starts in September '81, when Kim joins Hawaï's first heavy metal band VIXEN (not the Janet Gardner outfit) together with Jeff Graves-drums, Paul Escorpeso-bass (ex-MANICA) and Marty Friedman on guitar (who came from the Washington based band DEUCE). Friedman's name will also return in bands like ALOHA, HAWAII, CACOPHONY and today MEGADETH.

Strut - Unlimited Access 1988 (Hard Rock) US

The equation is pretty simple here. If you like your 80's hard rock / metal, odds are pretty high you'll like this disc. It's not the best ever, but it's just a good solid 80's hard rock disc. 'Stay tonight' is great commercial hard rock and 'Just say goodbye' is quite a lovely ballad... and elsewhere you just have a good solid hard rockers. Nicely played as well. Good album and well worth a purchase if you can find it (geoff)
