I suppose you had to be there... Goodbye KISS Alive II, I will not be requiring your services any longer.

I don't suppose Alive III is much better? I'll give it a go first.

It's not a bad song, except for the silly baby talk.

Anyway, Kiss Alive III is a HUGE improvement on Alive II. The filler ratio has been reduced, and the production values are better. I'm keeping it. Alive! is the next album on the list to explore, but I'm all KISS'ed out for now. I might come back to it if I remember. Time for a completely different pile of poo:

I hate f'kin' Slipknot with a vengeance, so this might not last long...

OK, truly pathetic. I got as far as the sixth track, which is about five more than I initially would have thought. It's so feeble it's not even annoying. It inspires indifference. I was considering keeping it and writing a flaming review of it, since the album has none, but I can't even work up the motivation to do that. Deleting, and if I ever find the inspiration to write that review, I'll do it off Spotify.

Now, I love Alice Cooper, but I never got round to listening to much past Trash and a few of the 70s albums. My dear brother though, he collected everything. So giving this a first full listen.Smile

Good old Alice. Not vital or particularly impressive, but solid. A keeper.

The next one is a RATM bootleg... er, unauthorised recording, I mean.


I don't really like RATM, so this might not last long either.

Never understood the fuss made over the first 2 Kiss live albums, especially the first one. I thought they were both pretty weak. Must admit I've not heard this one though.

I think they both suffer from KISS' career long inconsistency. I have even heard a KISS fan say you'll only get a couple of good songs per album. By 1993, they had released enough albums to find enough decent songs for a consistent live show. It would be cool to see live, but then you'd have to put up with the Kiss Army too.LOL

Anyway, the RATM bootleg wasn't a good idea. Why did I think I would want to listen to songs I don't like, played a bit out of tune (well, sung out of tune. The rest of the band are pretty fucking tight!), and badly recorded? Bye bye America's Most Wanted.

And here's another surprise: Queensryche. Yes, I have Operation: Mindcrime, and I have heard a couple of the early albums, and I have a greatest hits CD somewhere, but I have never given these guys much more of a listen than that. Let's see how this goes.

That Queensryche album was really fucking good. 3.5.

Aaand... back to KISS (FFS...) I gotta say I haven't even HEARD of this album, let alone heard anything ON it:

That was actually a pleasant surprise. Not a great album by any means, but a genuine heavy metal album, and not the usual pop rock crap. I won't listen to it often, but it can stay.

I have heard bits and pieces from this, but never sat through the whole thing:

Now, I'm curious. I've never heard it, but if it's anything like Creatures of the Night (as in Kiss making a metal album), I'd probably enjoy it.

EDIT: Oh yeah, and sorry about the Slipknot picture. I gave it some better quality cover art, not that it'll make it a better album. LOL

He he I think he is cute. On topic I love this EP. Especially Bad Horsie and of course the amazing Tender Surrender...the latter is probably my favorite Steve Vai song. Try watching some of the live videos of that song on Youtube...crazy shit, but still very melodic....and of course Vai has time to run his fingers through his his, lick his fingers, and play wih his right han on the fretboard instead of his left hand. The man is a phenomenon.

Animalize is listenable, decent, but it's no Creatures of the Night, which IMO is one of the band's best works.

I'll check 'em out when I get that far. I'm pleased I'm discovering some decent music here, and it's not all just shit like I thought it would be.

70s Aerosmith is great, the only albums really worth checking out.

Right, back into it!

Another band I really don't have much time for. It's a bit of a surprise to see my brother had this.

Like I thought. Didn't disappoint. A keeper.

Unfortunately, I found more Lamb of God. Those vocals are fucking terrible so far!

Nope. It's gone. That fucking singer wants to be Phil Anselmo but hasn't got the power or range.

Aaaand, I discovered some more KISS...

Oh man, that's a fucking AWFUL album cover!Shocked
