I thought it was good song. Mark has a great voice, love the Halfway There album. Yep, Shane made me smile (dorky Dad powers activate). Thank you PterCriss.

Brilliant song and fantastic example of the kind of solos Vinnie could've laid down had he not been hell bent on being completely over the top all the time.

I don't understand these type of videos though, why am I looking at this guy watching the video?!

I do generally agree. I especially detest most “reaction” videos, which are all so overplayed. Cheap way for people to ride the coattails of someone else’s creativity while only needing to mimic the behavior of other attention-starved YouTube brats.

But I like Shane Diablo — he’s good at what he does.

Nice verse, pre chorus, but the main chorus is very very poor. Clumsy and average.

As much as vv doesn't like mark slaughter I feel that they worked perfectly together in the studio. I think because mark isn't the natural choice for vv it works even better.
I actually would say the Vinnie / Slaughter combo is better than vv / paul Stanley and vv / Robert

Great video by Nigel Dick

And no... that was not Bobbie Brown in the video. That gorgeous girl was Donna Ysrael (and I had her # back then). Super hot

The video got very good rotation on MTV back then.

Shame "Love Kills" came out less than a month later and took its play away...... shame there couldn't have been more time between them but Freddie did have a release date.


I think Mark gave the Tony Alamo "Vegas" jacket to his mom. I saw one at the Golden Nugget for sale back then and I think they wanted $1200 to $1500 for it.
I can't remember the name of the guy who added some stuff to the front of the Alamo jacket and I believe he was the same one who did Marks Patrick Nagel drawing jacket as well.

Speaking of apparel, the shirt Vinnie was wearing in this video was on display at the Birthday Bash. I believe it will be there for the Christmas event, too.

Not even slightly unfortunately. Vinnie`s wokred on some great songs, with great hooks, but That Time Of Year`s chorus has always felt clumsy and rushed to me.

I disagree completely. Very catchy hook with great melody in the chorus.

They sold a TON of those jackets back in the late 80's and early 90's and for a ton of money at the time.

Don King still wears the United States one

A wonderfully musical song. There wasn’t much of that going on in 1988. The chorus is fantastic.

From watching just these two hair videos, That TIme of Year and Love Kills, one might think they were a normal higher quality hair band.
Funny thing I noticed after checking out recent Slaughter live vids - it's noise and madness, like they're trying to one up VVI only without the chromatic shredding.

In my view the best song he did post KISS.
Imagine Paul singing this? WOW! Vinnie could write a killer song, no doubt about it. If only he was able to restrain himself guitar wise more often. Far too much shredding on those 2 albums.

:lol:

Why are you commenting on why you're watching a guy watching a video?

Why am I commenting on your comment about why you're watching a guy watching a video?

I wonder if that guy will wonder why he's reading my comment about your comment about him watching a video.

And then there's Vinnie. Is he wondering, or reading, or watching?

It's a head-spinner!

Back to the song though: this and all the other songs for me are kind of, well... They're good songs and all, but I don't care much for the neutered solos, but I care even less about the vocal. It's an album I'm only appreciating more as I hit 50. But that first VVI came out when I was 16 and it was fucking incredible.

Apparently someone I drove past last week thinks so, lol. They must have done some cleaning recently and one of the boxes of trash they set outside busted open in the rain. I started sifting through these but was disappointed to find they were only cases and booklets — no CD’s. Bummer!

Who said anything about comparing?
You stated that there was nothing else musically 'wonderful' going on in 1988.
I posted a bunch of great albums, some of which today are considered classics.
The only ignoramus around here is you.
Also, That Time Of Year is a complete and utter POS.

I was thinking the same thing. By no means is it terrible...it just sounds like any other band from that era and style. Nothing stands out in it that makes it special.
