I have a more controversial lineup. I love the Revenge-era Kiss than the classic Kiss. Bruce Kulick gets more love from me than Ace Frehley. :lol

Revenge is my favorite Kiss album.

Me too.
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

Me too. But I love all eras of KISS just as much.
Only King could mis-spell a LETTER.
Yep. I think the only party in the MP/DT situation that hasn't moved on is DTF.

Anyone at all even remotely interested in my take on the Kiss Discography?  Since we've been talking about them I've been revisiting some of the mid- and later-nonmakeup- period stuff, and it might be fun if people are interested in reading and (much more importantly) commenting on each of the albums.

I can put them in reverse order of "my favorite" too, to add to it.   

Just a thought...

I'll read it, although I'd probably be busy to comment all the time.  :tup

That opening riff in Unholy is glorious.

And of course, God Gave Rock and Roll to us!  :metal :lol

Motley Crue - they are just one of those bands for me, but the lone album with Corabi is a gem.

I like the s/t album better than any other Motley Crue album, but I almost consider it a separate band, since it doesn't really sound like the Crue.
Way better than any of their other albums!

I don't know.  I never looked at Van Hagar as a classic line up.  Just a great line up. I used classic for the Dave era.  Classic doesn't always mean best.

Yep. Given the hoopla for a Dave reunion and the lack of clamor for a Hagar one, DLR VH is seen as the classic lineup.
Supposedly, the Van Hagar reunion is right around the corner.  No joke.  But, I can't see Sammy touring with Wolfie.  His loyalty to MA has me thinking Mikey would have to be in it or it wouldn't happen at all.

I read an interview with Sammy a week or two ago.  He said that the only way he would ever play with Van Halen again is with Michael Anthony.  So no reunion is right around the corner.

Red Hot with Dave Navarro. I think One Hot Minute is a great record (and the better RHCP record instrumentally speaking) and to me that lineup had the potential to do better records yet.

I agree, but in the fture, I can see that happening.  "Dad, I've got my own gig, you need to go one more time around with the old gang".  I don't know if Ed would do it, but I can see that conversation happening.

Wolf has a gig with Tremonti and couldn't tour with him because of his contractual obligation to Van Halen.

He recorded the Tremonti album but toured with VH.

I think I heard Wolf isn't in Tremonti anymore, you are correct he did record with them, but I just read somewhere (an interview with Mark Tremonti I think) where he said Wolf is going to do his on thing or something like that.

Good call. One Hot Minute is a kick ass album.

Porcupine Tree - I may be the biggest Chris Maitland fan on the forum and I honestly think pre-Gavin Harrison PT was just as good, but I also think Gavin joining was the final piece of the puzzle and it was smooth sailing from the band after that.

I started listening to PT right when Gavin joined the band so I wasn't a fan of pre-IA PT but as I've gotten older and listened to the earlier records I really enjoy Chris Maitland's drumming. It's not Gavin but his style meshed so well with pre-PT that they are pretty much on the same level.

That's just my drunken rambling though.
