Ah, heck, just give me any ten TST-related recordings and be done with it. Oh, and you'd better give me a solar-powered battery charger and some rechargeable batteries for my CD player.

But Gary Cherone... He just did not fit. Not at all. He's not a wild showman, he's not a particularly powerful singer. Good, yes but not earth-shakingly good. His lyrics weren't so swell either. In Extreme, he could play off of Nuno Bettencourt but in VH, he seemed exactly like the surrogate he was.

Very well said. Except that after,

"How do I know when it's love?
I can't tell you but it lasts forever
Oh! How does it feel when it's love?
It's just something you feel together

(Oh oh oh oh) Oh, when it's love
(Oh oh oh oh) You can feel it, yeah!
(Oh oh oh oh) Nothin's missin', yeah!"


I would say "...Hagar wasn't a good lyricist" is being charitable.

That's actually kind of a tropical album; maybe Jimmy Buffet would like it.

Big Grin To the "end of an era" list? We'd definitely have to throw Queen's "Hot Space" to that list; what a horrible follow-up to a masterwork like "The Game".

Nope. That've been Meddle. Tongue

(quasi-interesting side note: There's a college station 'round here that does a 20-minute block of Floyd every Thursday afternoon, and are pretty liberal with the earlier stuff -- one set was "A Saucerful of Secrets" in its entirety. Smile ) But when they play the Wall stuff I go cruising for another station until it's over.... really, anything from Dark Side on sends up a red flag....)

"The Game" a masterwork? Whoa. Granted, it was better than Jazz (the album that has the distinct honor of being the first album I ever literally took out and shot), but uh-uh. I love "Sail Away, Sweet Sister," but the rest I could more or less take or leave. And yes, side one of Hot Space is dreck. But Side Two starts with "Put Out the Fire" and closes with "Under Pressure" (arguably the best thing they EVER did) so how bad can THAT be? (& I like the Lennon tribute, awkward as it was at times).

The Division Bell Tongue No Roger Waters but still one of the greatest CD's ever. Pink Floyd plain rocks.

there is an interesting game with DA and Pink Floyd
I ought to know- I made it up!

If anyone wants to play- let me know and we'll create a thread.
It is in its infancy- but I thought it was a fascinating little "Dark Side of DA" coincidence.

as in the Dark side of Oz- are we all familiar with that?

"The Game" is incredible. Their first six songs on it were all over FM and rightfully so. I heard there's a DVD out on the making of it; I'd love to see it.

"Hot Space", I don't know, it was way too radical of a change, and they didn't sound like much of a band on it. "Under Pressure" was already out way before it; I think they threw the song on there to save it from being a total disaster. "The Works" was an OK comeback, but a little too little to late. "One Vision" was a cool song; but haven't heard any of their albums newer than "The Works". I had kinda lost interest by then.

The Prayer Chain - Mercury should also be on the list.

Maybe the ultimate example of an "end of an era" album, would be The Beach Boys with "Smiley Smile" being released after "Pet Sounds". In the words of Carl Wilson, it was "definitely more of a bunt than a grand slam."

i think that "innuendo" is a great cd. i also think that "made in heaven" is great.....especially if you look at how (and why) it was made.

I think Innuendo was their best album of their last 10 years. It was better overall than the other albums they released during that time.
