I don't think you should adjust for and factor out nostalgia. It's a little bit dumb, but I think there's no shame in having your enjoyment of certain music be enhanced by nostalgia.

That said, I don't know if I agree or disagree with that point. It's a tough call for me. Like, for example, The Chemical Wedding is a ton better than The Final Frontier, but to say Bruce's solo work as a whole eclipses post DoD Maiden, I don't know.

Fair enough. I have tons of nostalgia for DoD Too much to be able to speak of the album objectively.

And yeah, I see your point. I guess AMOLAD is definitely better than Final Frontier, but I can see how some people would easily take it over.... Skunkworks. Or Balls to Picasso. Or Tattooed Millionaire.

I adore Voivod but they haven't put out anything even halfway decent (save for a song or two) since The Outer Limits.

I have come to the conclusion that Metal Church is in fact, the greatest band to ever exist. Everything by them fucking rules. Everything. All three of their vocalists are awesome and they can have whatever lineup they damn well please and still be amazing. They can do thrash (Ton of Bricks), catchy rockers (Badlands), gothic progressive things (Beyond the Black), and lumbering riff rapers (Fake Healer)- they can do whatever the fuck they want and be good at it.

Also Psalm 9 by Trouble is one of the heaviest records I've listened to in a really long time, I haven't been able to stop listening to it for the past three months.

Tesla & Cinderella are both wrongfully lumped in with the hair/glam era.

Both are awesome hard blues rock bands.

Boston was an awesome band that trandscends time and sounds just as good today as when they first hit the airwaves with their debut album.

Fixed so that I agree.

Don't look back is only half as good as the debut, and all the later albums... well I only listened to them once and then deleted them asap.

Tesla doesn't fit anywhere into that genre but Cinderella certainly does when you look at the image they had back in the day. The other band I always thought got unfairly put in the hair/glam genre is Def Leppard. There was nothing "hair band" about them back in the 80s and musically they're just a striaght up commercial rock band.
