Eminence Front is a great song.
Even the guys in the band thought so - didn't Roger once say that it's the only one on the whole album that's actually worthy of being released?

And if they ever make a CSI: London, there's your theme song.

Moving on...there was a rumor that Warrant absolutely hated Cherry Pie (the title track, anyway) but that was just one instance of the lead singer being interviewed at a really bad time and was in a shitty mood and said a bunch of things that got taken way out of context.

If Nickelback aren't ashamed of everything they have recorded, they should be.

Nightwish Dark Passion Play without tarja turunen as their lead vocalist i really feel that they have lost the voice that made them unique and one of my favourite bands.

I'd say Hot Space, but I think Queen and I are probably the only people who think it's a flipping excellent album
Personally I think the live version of Staying Power (from their 1982 Milton Keynes Bowl show) totally tramples and stomps the studio version all over the dancefloor!

Re: Albums bands might've wished they hadn't made.

No Todd, never heard of em. Cactus was another band I think that fond of playing fast.

I do remember a radio advert for a Deep Purple concert very late 70's. They were stopped pretty quickly, the DJ Jim Ladd warned that it wasn't the real deal. Always wondered who was behind that, some old member? Evans perhaps. Dunno.

Re: Albums bands might've wished they hadn't made.

Noel Gallagher wishes Oasis hadn't made Be Here Now, which is why it's unrepresented on their "Best Of" compilation, Stop the Clocks. Which shows what an idiot Noel Gallagher can be at times; I love that album.

And someone mentioned Garth Brooks' concept album as the Australian rock star, Chris Gaines. I think that strange album works well, and I've enjoyed listening to it over the years.

I remember Captain Beyond (which also included former members of Iron Butterfly) but not sure about Sir Lord Baltimore.

I was at that concert, or one of them. [The last one, as it turns out -- at the Long Beach Arena.] Someone had discovered Rod Evans working as a supervisor in a hospital in Los Angeles and put a band together to back him up, doing songs from all versions of Deep Purple, heavy on the Mark II era. Too bad Ladd didn't start warning until after they pulled the plug on the concerts.

He did warn before when the tickets were being sold. How was the show?

Yeah me too. I would have thought Standing on the Shoulders of Giants would have been a more obvious choice.

Kiss The Elder,( Dynasty, Unmasked too I suppose).

Priest Ram it Down. Like the title track though.

Nuge Paralyzed.

Blackfoot Vertical Smiles.

Pink Floyd Final Cut.

Saxon Crusader.

VH 3?
Ram it down? There's some decent tracks on there. Hard as Iron, Ram it Down, Heavy Metal, Blood Red Skies... Turbo is way worse.

How bout Garage Inc? Have mixed feelings about doing a load of covers. Some I like, but a double album of covers? I dunno.

Flush the Fashion Alice Cooper.

Aerosmiths 1st double live album. Recorded & presented like a bootleg, poor sound quality.


Venom's 3rd. At War With Satan. 2 things went wrong there. side 2 was one long song. Bad idea. Chronos said it was his idea, being a big Rush fan. Black metal is short attention span music.
The title didn't go over right. Everyone thought it meant a war against Satan. It meant at war WITH him.
I like At War with Satan. And as for Garage Inc, I was just grateful that they re-released the songs from the original Garage Days ep. As far as the new stuff, the Mercyful Fate medley was cool.

I know Ozzy wishes he'd never made The Ultimate Sin.

I actually like the Ultimate Sin. I bought it on vinyl not too long ago. The cover alone is a kickass addition to my vinyl collection. (Which can be seen here if anyone's interested.)

Be Here Now wasn't exactly a critical darling upon its release, and given the higher-than-normal (for Oasis) level of turmoil and chaos during the recording sessions, I'm not surprised that the band would much rather ignore its existence completely.

Personally, I thought the album was just loud, obnoxious and utterly forgettable.

Yeah, I like it too. I bought all the new Ozzy remasters in disc a few year ago and I was bummed that TUS didn't get the same treatment.

I agree, Turbo was WAY worse than Ram it Down. Of course, compared to Painkiller, RID was some garbage as well.
