Post Fallen in love with Racer X... again?
For a long time, I've stopped listening to Racer X to discover other stuff. Motörhead, Mötley Crüe, Accept, Dokken to only name three randomly (the list is actually long)... you name it. I occasionnally listened to a Racer X song, but recently I've started listening to Racer X like I did when I first discovered the band.

I accidentally put a CD in my cd player that was a compilation I made on itunes of songs I like, and on it was Hammer Away. Well:

SOMEONE FUCKING REUNITE THIS FUCKING BAND RIGHT NOW!!!

Since I've heard Hammer Away again, I grabbed my Second Heat record that's been sitting there on my shelf next to Van Halen's eponymous record, and Yngwie Malsmteen's Rising Force Rising Force, and I've been listening to it like it's the fucking holy grail of music.

My two favorite songs since I've reunited with that album are Hammer Away and Sunlit Nights. They have some killer solos and killer riffs, god dammit, the riffs are so intense they are almost solos. Then there are Gone Too Far, Scarified, Heart Of A Lion, Living The Hard Way and Motorman that rock my socks intensely. Holy shit, isn't this album the best album ever or what?!

[/psycho mode]

I wish the Second Heat line up reunited and released something. I take an oath: I'll buy ten copies. Two for me, I'll give the eight others as birthday presents to friends or to people I meet in the supermarket I don't care. I'll buy twenty if it happens in 2010. I still don't get why Paul hasn't already reunited the monster and started blowing shit up and starting riots. I mean come on, The Doors are more metal than Paul at the moment... yes I know they're not a band anymore, that's exactly my point.

Woah I'm having seconds thoughts about hitting submit but... fuck it, here goes!

As long as it is not 'getting heavier2' , IMO jeffs 'the fool' is heavier and more kickass than GH was.
Also it is not 1988 anymore! People change and move on....

I started listening to Racer X again like crazy a couple months ago.


It does make me wonder what could happen if there were another album.

"Like?"

"Like?!"

Son, it IS the fucking holy grail of music!


That said, you've done a good thing, Acid Wire.

Now go in peace.

I try to listen to RX at least once a week.. this week I'll listen to Scit Scat Wah and the whole Extreme Volume I LP, I need it!
And yes, I'd love a RX reunion.. unfortunately last year I couldn't afford to take the plane and go to LA for the NAMM show, but in the future if they play in Europe, I'll be there, I'll do my best to be there.
I wish Paul consider this band.. it's still a kick-ass group after so many years!

I think it's thank to this thread that I listened to Second Heat and Live Extreme Volumes I &II last night! I think I & II I listened to twice each, because I was too lazy to change the cd when it ended.
