Huge loss, tough one to see go and especially when it didn't need be. Excellent initial post you made concerning this tragedy James, it really hit home and was needed. I was looking for something like this and knew you had a deep love of Soundgarden. You didn't disappoint.

"Hair Metal" is a far overused term invented by those that know very little about the music of the era. Poison, Winger, Firehouse (etc etc) are NOT in the same ranks as vintage Crue, Ratt, Tesla and some other GOOD bands. Pearcy sounds like NOONE else.
I enjoyed much music from this era and I despised much music from this era but labeling every rock act from the 80's as "hair metal" is a joke.
Ratt was one of the bands I liked from the 80's so I DID want to like this new album entitled "Infestation". Unfortunately, unlike Axlin08, I CANNOT give it a good rating.
The songs are forced, poorly written and have no "punch" whatsoever. The only exception would be the fairly good track "Take Me Home".
"Eat Me Up Alive" and "Best of Me" come close at times to recapturing yesteryear Ratt but ultimately end up sounding like a bunch of older guys trying to sound like youths again...it doesn't work.
The guitar work is solid and the vocals are there but the fun, youthful punch of Ratt is long gone if this album is any indication.

Sorry for my recent absence guys, had alot of things I had to take care of and got behind.
One thing I got WAY behind on is this section so I will try and get back on track! The songs that are NOT highlighted in either red or yellow on the list will be uploaded then several other songs will be added to the list.
As always if you have a request please let me know and I will do my best to add it as well.
Here's a few new links to the list: (*some may have appeared prior but were lost when the site's database was updated awhile back)
