Re: Acoustic Classical Hartman - new CD

My wife instructed me not to buy it since she wants to get it for me for Christmas.

Re: CPR

The more I listen to the samples the more I like them. That's a fairly well-known phenomenon, that the more you're exposed to something, the more you will prefer it. I've read stories of studio heads who would avoid this by only listening a demo tape once, and if they weren't immediately hooked, th...

Re: CPR

OK, I've listened to the samples, and... um... are these demos, or final mixes? Because they sound like unfinished demos, or like a low-rent tribute band. The mix is flat, there's no "pop", and, quite frankly, Greg sounds bored, and the instrumentation is uninspired, like everybody was just going th...

Re: CPR

"Back to the Rock" was fun, well-produced, and had energy. I haven't listened to these samples yet, but the way you folks are describing it, it sounds like a bunch of has-beens trying to recapture their glory days. It strikes me as unnecessary. Meanwhile, I'm waiting for the next release from Union ...

Re: Crossfire

I think in general we have more interest in those early years than the band members themselves. :lol: I've occasionally tried to enlist some band members in helping me reconstruct their discography, but some of them even didn't remember some of the credits I'd found. But some were helpful as well. ...

Re: Crossfire

I'm not sure why you find that so funny. After your memory, they say that the next thing to go is your sense of humor. OK... I'm still not sure why you find it so funny that Louie is unable to accurately recall past events. And given your above comment, are you suggesting that he is becoming addled...

"Stand in the Gap" is possibly my all-time favorite Petra song.

Listening to some of the samples...

This is really, really good!

Re: Stryper question

Just for interesting perspective. I did the math and found that Michael wrote 84% of the songs on all Stryper albums. It's actually probably slightly higher because I did not eliminate songs that were borrowed from other groups, like Shining Star and Peace of Mind. On the songs that had co-writers,...

Re: Stryper question

http://www.blabbermouth.net/news/ex-stryper-bassist-tim-gaines-slams-michael-sweet-tells-his-former-bandmates-to-grow-some-balls/ Wouldn't be the first time someone was booted from a band for letting their personal life get in the way of their career. Perhaps the most high-profile example was Steve...

Can't wait to hear it. I think Bob is an underrated guitarist.

Re: CPR

OK, I get that. I probably like Sabaton because they sound like an 80's hair-metal band.

Re: CPR

It is very hard for males beyond their 20s to be impressed with new music, especially from their favorite bands. I'm not sure why you say that. I thought Jekyll & Hyde was awesome, and that came out when I was in my 30s (holy crap, was it really that long ago?!). I love the recent stuff Steve Taylo...
