I like "Buzz", too!  Actually, I like all of their stuff except for First Watch.  The vocals bug me on that one.

1. Fire & Love
2. Miracle Mile
3. The Yellow & Black Attack is Back (cover of the original Stryper EP)
4. First Watch


Then just stop.  Buzz isn't "horrible" but IMO it pales in comparison to those others.  Their "3 To Get Ready" EP was actually quite enjoyable as well, but it is only 3 songs.

Agreed!

Anyone have the remastered version of "First Watch"?  I have the CD, but I cannot find it and would like to rip it to MP3.

I've only listened to First Watch, as that's the only album I have (Chris, I might be able to hook you up with downloads for the remaster); I'd say it's pretty good.. Fire & Love and Miracle Mile, from what I've heard, are good places to start; if you have the Fear Not self-titled release, it sounds quite like those two albums.

I am almost certain I have the remastered version....I'll have to check.

As a Die Hard Guardian fan (Jamie Rowe in my opinion has the best voice in melodic rock) I would recommend them all. If it's the pop/metal sound then definitely get Fire & Love. The follow up was Miracle Mile which had a more Hard Rock sound to it but was really good. First Watch is good as well (pre-Jamie Rowe album). After Miracle Mile they went to a more alternative rock sound.

Also, I am in the minority but I think their last album Almost Home is really really good as well. I know it gets bagged on because it didn't have that F&L sound, but I really like it. Price We Pay and Almost Home are some of the better tunes in recent years by the band.

Fire and Love.

Seen them 3 times on that tour (if you can call it a tour, seems they were perpetually playing the SoCal area at that time)

And as others have said and I agree, next in line is Miracle Mile, then The Yellow and Black Attack are Back... and (as others have said) the rest of their albums are great as well.

The riffs of Palacios and the chops of Jamie just make this band the ultimate poster child for Commercial Metal for fans of Bon Jovi, Def Leppard, Stryper, Winger, Extreme, Crue, GnR. In fact some of Rowe's moves onstage even resemble Axl.  Laughing

I love First Watch, Fire and Love, Miracle Mile and Buzz. Just listened to Buzz the other day in fact. It was different than those first 3, but I think it's fantastic. I won't pick a favorite since that depends on the day of the week it is. I love all four records.

Swing, Swang, Swung was a hit-or-miss affair. There are some really great songs on there, but also some songs that I don't ever need to hear again.

Bottle Rocket...well, it was a record. I wouldn't recommend it. It's not the worst thing I've ever heard, but I never listen to it. Never.

I will put this in here as well.  If you have a legit copy of "Fire & Love" and would like to hear my remaster, send me a PM with your email address.  I will have to operate on the "trust me" system.  I think you will be surprised at how I've made this sound.

This was one of the first Christian hard rock albums I ever got (Fire and Love).  I would love to hear what you have done with the remastering.

I could have sworn that I had already sent it to you, Gary!  Check your spam folder and make sure you did not get something from Dropbox already.
