• ** Non Glenn related releases only **

    Well, I didn't think this year had much to offer from other artists and I can only come up with a handful of worthy albums that deserve any honorable mentions!

    Richie Kotzen - Slow
    Humanimal - Humanimal
    Dave Meniketti - Meniketti
    Westworld - Cyberdreams
    Audioslave - Audioslave (Boot demos were better )
    Harem Scarem - Weight Of The World

    Agree - disagree? What does your list look like?

    From what I can see, it looks like 2003 will be a better year

    ** Non Glenn related releases only **

  • Here are some of my favorite releases of the year. I too found this to be a dissappointing year as many of my favorite artists released subpar records(Tea Party, Del Amitri)so I had to look outside the box:

    Bleu - Redhead (Aware Records)
    Beck - Sea Change
    Dishwalla - Opaline
    QOTSA - Songs for the Deaf
    Rhett Miller - Instigator
    Silverchair - Diorama
    Audioslave(Yes, the boot demos are better!!)
    Our Lady Peace -Gravity

    some bands I found out about but did not release cds this year:

    Earth to Andy - Chronicle Kings
    David Usher - Morning Orbit

    Hope next year will be better.....can it be worse?

    Please don't say yes!!!


  • Hi!

    Nice lists. I'll try to come up with something as well. By the way:

    Richie Kotzen - Slow
    Humanimal - Humanimal

    Those *are* Glenn Hughes related artists
    aren't they? ;)

  • very difficult choices.....
    first of all
    MENIKETTI the best one
    this year has been a little poor about new releases very good.
    UFO SHARKS listenable
    THE CAGE 2 good album


  • A fairly quiet year, no doubt. However, there were still some gems in the form of:

    Bowes / Morley - Moving Swiftly Along (most of you non-UK guys will be totally ignorant of these two)
    Paul Gilbert - Burning Organ
    Eric Martin - I'm Goin' Sane (here's one album that did anything but disappoint)

    That said, I got stacks of great albums this year, but they dated from all over the place. It wasn't until I actually looked what brand new stuff I bought I realised how little new stuff without Glenn I'd purchased!


  • Hey James,

    Been a Thunder fan for a while(not many of us in the USA) and bought that cd. I liked it but thought that Morley's solo cd last year was better. Looking forward to hearing new Thunder material though!!!


  • Hi there,

    Here's a list of albums that I really enjoy(ed)
    listening to in 2002, so perhaps it's my top list for 2002. (Of non GH music that is)

    Coldplay - A Rush of Blood To The Head
    Queens of the Stone Age - Songs for the Deaf
    Norah Jones - Come Away With Me
    Anouk - Graduated Fool
    Bad Company - Merchants of Cool
    Timo Maas - Loud
    Beth Gibbons & Rustin' Man - Out of Season

  • Maz,

    I'm blown away that somebody in the States has Bowes/Morley! It's all I can do to find somebody in the UK who has it! I didn't buy Luke's solo album because I think his voice is that of a backing singer....I'm not impressed with his lead work. Excellent songwriter however.
    I thought Thunder were great though....I got to meet them when they played at my home town, got loads of stuff signed and saw them twice more after that. Rumour has it the new album will be a balls to the wall rocker...here's hoping!


  • Morjens,
    all of these are not new (year 2002)albums, but albums I bought this year, not in any particular order:
    Peter Gabriel: UP
    David Sylvian/Robert Fripp:The First Day
    King Crimson:Heavy ConstruKction
    Marillion:Anorak in the UK
    Mr Big:Japandemonium Raw Like Sushi III (all 3 are great)
    Audioslave: got demos today, so I can't say anything about them...:)
    Blue Murder:Screaming Blue Murder live

    i had kinda weird year - first half I collected Mr Big/Blue Murder kinda stuff and now I'm (almost) totally into progressive rock...:)

    nice weekendto everyone,


  • Hi,
    My 2002 picks, sans Glenn, are:

    Chris (I haven't heard the Audioslave Demos !!)

    "The Boy Can Sing The Blues"



  • Hi Chris,

    I've heard about this album by Sarah Jane Morris
    & Marc Ribot. So it is good... Thanks for
    reminding me of the title/artist, I had forgotten about it!


    - Fedor

  • Hi Fedor,
    some more appetizers for her new Album: Ribot is on Acoustic Guitar mostly, Phil Coulter (Morris' husband) occasionally helps out on world instruments & Keyboards. There are quite some covers, tastefully arranged and sung fabulously (as we can expect this from Glenn, we can from Sarah Jane...)
    Need the tracklisting?
    Talk to you soon, Chris

    "The Boy Can Sing The Blues"



  • Thanks Chris. I will certainly try to find this album. You served me the right appetizers.
