Check it out at classic rock revisited, they have their pick of the top 20 releases for the past year. Personally I would have put it a lot higher on the list, but it's there with some other good choices.
It's great SITKOR made the list, but I'm stumped as to how they put Bret Michaels, David Lee Roth, Black Label Society and Iron Maiden, just to name a few, ahead of it Are these really considered 'Classic Rock'?
Each to their own I guess
I don't have a problem with the Iron Maiden or Black Label Society at all... and I really agree with the high ranking of the latest Allman Bros. album (maybe not #1) The Tull Christmas Album is fantastic, Tull is one of the greatest Classic rock bands probably, but, all 3 Tull related releases of 2003? Was this thing polled? I have not heard a lot of these Albums other than the ones mentioned here (Except B's Night and Bananas) And I doubt I ever will here Diamond Daves, or Bret Micheals! If it were my personal to 20- Glenn's would be in the top 3 with-out a doubt!
I wouldnt have put DP's or Ritchie's album in the list - or several others.
It is a bit of an odd selection of one extreme to the other having Iron Maiden and Blackmores Night in it.
"It's in my blood"
DP's Bananas is quite good. It took me a couple of listens, but the production is awesome, original songs and I think "Doing It Tonight" would be a radio hit if given the chance.
Blackmore's Night is hardly classic rock, but to be fair, I have not heard it, so I do not know how good it is. As for David Lee Roth, it was one of the worst reviewed records of the year to my knowledge.
My 2 Cents,
I really Liked DLR - it took some hammer from the critics but that was inevitable because Dave tried something different. There are a couple of weird moments but for the most part I thought it was a strong effort.
