Re: Strenght of Steel
- Not negative...It's the sound that is not what I
was waiting for. For the songs, I heard them many
times live before the album has been released. In fact,
it was better live.<br><br>I wrote (on a real letter
in 1985) to Lips to critize him during the Christmas
period. I put a gift with my letter cos I was shy to
criticize openly. Now, I'm not anymore :)) I wrote
something like "your fans are more interested by what you
have in your guts that what is your
pants".<br><br>Lips answered! Then, after he thanks me for the gift
and the Christmas wishes...he explained that the band
was looking more for a sound like MoM not like FiF.
He wrote a list of the songs we would find on the
next album. I'm glad to read him when he typed now,
cos Lips's natural "handwritting" is very
special.<br><br>Finally, they had problems and Dave wasn't helping to
resolve them (I guess).They signed in 1987 with Metal
Blade, and that's the big badluck for Anvil. During
these 4 years without any albums, all the bands that I
named in a previous message had time to go "on stage"
and "on studio".<br><br>I like Concrete Jungle, I've
been one of the first telling that it was a very good
song. I don't like any cover song. "Wild eyes" is good
too, but for all bands: I don't like covers.The sound
and the lack of "work" in the bass in the song
"Strenght of Steel" don't give me any emotion. It depends
of what you look at when you listen to music. I look
at the sound, the production and the sutility of the
song (now, I check the lyrics). It is fun to hear
songs that are about sex, just to laught. But "Straight
btw the eyes", is not interesting to me: it gives me
the same effect that the "Chineese foods". That's why
I was deceived about SoS. Not deceived about the
band. "The End of the world", Lips's voice is tired.
Tired to get high, when his real tone is lower... It's
my personal opinion. <br><br>Tange :)

This is one of the first message that LIPS wrote to this board...Can
I return the question? Where are you LIPS? It's not because we want
you to answer to all little crazy messages we write, it's because in
my case: I worry.
Did he break his leg, his arm (No!!)? I don't even want to know about
what you do or think.....Just want to know that you're fine, if you
are okay and if Anvil still exist.
I've never heard about The Foundation's gig...I imagine all kind of
bad thing. Does he have a pneumonia? (secondary smoke yunno, hmmmm...)
A cold maybe? We all know that you work hard, but Dan wrote a message
to remind you some festivals...Why don't you react? Are you bored of
your own fanclub, man?
I would like to have your opinion on this Def Leppard's commercial
song...Do you hear the "Back in Black" riff and the "Rock of ages"
melody? "Am I going insane"?
Also, I would appreciate IF you could take a look at
www.anvil.here.ws and that you tell me if you find the colors
too "feminin". And, if it is....suggest me some ideas, it's easy to
You know that I'm really worry about you, dood? A truck accident? I
don't know cos you don't give any news...You were all friendly
posting here, and then you stopped suddenly. Did we offend you or
something like that?
