I own four albums by this band, which i have been listening to lately, while working from home: Lean into it, Bump Ahead, Hey Man and Get Over It.

Highly enjoyable music and lots of talent.

I hadn't played their albums in years, so i totally forgot how good they actually are.

Any fans?

I’m a Paul Gilbert (Racer X) and Billy Sheehan (David Lee Roth) fan, but I have never owned a Mr Big album.

Loads of talent in the band, but they're music never did much for me.

I have almost all their discography (even the Live like Sushi albums which are sometimes hard to come by) and have been a fan since high school. I remember hearing "Addicted to that Rush" and getting the cassette single all the while eagerly anticipating getting the full album. I thought the whole disc would be like that song and when it wasn't, I was so disappointed I tried trading it way. There were no takers. Something made me give it another chance a couple years later and it just "clicked" as they say. By the time I taped "Green-Tinted Sixties Mind" off the Z Rock countdown I was a rabid fan.
I was never a fan of the Ritchie Kotzen era (the same goes for his time in Poison); he is certainly talented, but I guess I am just not a fan.

I think the main reason I don’t like Mr Big is the vocals. Eric Martin has a voice like a feminine Rod Stewart.

I'm a big Paul Gilbert fan, but although I've tried, I could never get into Mr. Big. I get that they weren't trying to be another Racer X with guitar wankery, but the music they produced was too white bread for me.

I only own the one with the train crash on the cover (whatever it's called)... as long as I hit "stop" before that godawful song "To Be With You" comes on, it's OK for an occasional listen.
