    I agree, over produced kiddy music, had no edge to it, never did anything for me.

    The thing about rock turning to pop if you look back many rock bands hit hard with their first 2 records and then the management gets involved , besides why wouldn’t you want to attract more girls than guys ?

    I think of many of the bands I listened to over the years including Y&T , LED Zeppelin , Rush, even MSG at one point turned to more commercially friendly music. They capitalize on their popularity. I like the first 2 records after that not so much. My woman used to like them.

    Don’t cry but even the great Sabbath changed a bit , not pop but less manic drumming and Ozzy did changes

    And I shall add The metal gods themselves (not their3 album though) British Steel. That was a bubble gum of an album as they
    Could have ever done , only Steeler was the only rocker on it,
    Sure it made them famous in the states but this was my take on the album.
    Sorry off topic rant
    Cheers Mitch

    but, the reality of British Steel was realized on Unleashed in the East, which is what put them over the top, in the US...

    The Green Manalishi. Who could forget that?
    Definitely one of my favorite well played vinyls was U I T East.

    My inner Bevis still thinks Kurt Loder's a fasdget.

    But they got that one song "Photograph" which sure is fun to sing and play at the same time.

    I thought the first album was good, High n Dry great(especially the guitar tones), and Pyromania even better. I didn't mind the extra polish and pop sensibilities of Pyromania and I still think that album is a masterclass in melodic hard rock songwriting.

    I've absolutely hated everything they've done since.
