I've got this one coming from Taki so I'll give you an opinion later. Looks promising though. Hope I'm right, these guys aren't cheap.

From: TIM Date: October 30, 2002 at 15:06
If you're one of those that rate an album a 10 due to production whether the music sucks or not- this isn't for you. However, if you want a band that kicks your ass in the style of Malicious Mischief then this is for you. Malicious Mischief has been submitted for those wondering. Some songs are comparable to Heavy Bones.

From: TheRipper Date: November 25, 2002 at 21:55
Hey all. This CD rocks, but I have a little secret that few know. These guys have another CD from about a year later (can't remember at the moment, either '92 or '93), and it might be even better in my opinion. It's the same type of stuff but I think they take a step forward in the songwriting department. People will wonder about this, but I GARUNTEE it exists because I have it, originally pressed and everything, needless to say it's a rare indie. This Band ROCKS no matter what release it is!!!

From: TIM Date: November 25, 2002 at 22:10
I've been told that but haven't found it yet.

From: danthecdman Date: December 20, 2002 at 2:53
The band does have a follow-up cd. The name of the cd is Judgment Day and the band's name has been changed to Totally Lost Cause.

From: TheRipper Date: December 20, 2002 at 8:40
No, the only one I know of is "Serious Trouble"? Seriously man, I wouldn't lie about this... Great Band.

From: David Date: January 21, 2003 at 9:32
danthecdman says that TLC's second album was called "Judgment Day" and TheRipper says that their second cd was called "Serious Trouble". Humm... something doesn't add up. I'm going to have to believe TheRipper.

From: TheRipper Date: January 21, 2003 at 10:14
Yeah, I'm gonna need to get that thing out and post it here, as I thought it would have more exposure after "Original Sin"? And I am %110 the CD is indeed called "Serious Trouble", and not just because I have it, because the title track off of it ABSOLUTELY KICKS, and I don't forget songs like that! This was their last release, as I know the guitarist (phenomenal axeman). Anyway, it's too bad this was their last though, great band with A LOT of talent. Essential for any Hard Rock/Metal fan!

From: MButt Date: January 21, 2003 at 19:41
hey Ripper, I hope you post the TLC-serious trouble cd. I would love more info on it. but it sounds truly tough to find!

From: danthecdman Date: February 6, 2003 at 23:00
I would love to see the cd posted too because I want to see the front cover. If I remember correctly, the second TLC cd has a pic of the lead singer with a gun pointed to his head. And yes, it is tough to find, even considering I'm from the band's hometown and none of the local cd shops have any used copies for sale. Although I have snagged two used copies of Original Sin in the past few months for $5 each.

From: danthecdman Date: March 30, 2003 at 2:38
After months of searching, I finally snagged a copy of the second TLC cd. Here's the details, and I'll upload the front cover asap, the cd is called Serious Trouble. The front cover shows producer Tom Borthwick holding reel to reel tapes with a gun pointed to his head. There are twelve tunes in all on the cd. Best part was I found the cd in a 5 cds for $10 bin.

hey danthecdman, great score, TLC-SERIOUS TROUBLE! and at a great price too. I know you are probably keeping that cd but if you are interested in selling or trading it let me know. or please give me a chance if you find another. my email is buttfamily@frontiernet.net thanks! I have an extra copy of AKA-DANGEROUS ADDICTION if you want to talk trade.

From: creeper Date: March 31, 2003 at 14:13
wow, TLC! Haven't heard that name in a long time. Dan, i didn't know you were from Scranton. I am too. and Ripper, Charlie is a wicked guitar player and a great guy. It used to be cool to watch his tv show he had going here. I got to jam with Charlie once when their drummer didn't show up for practice. This was before he was in TLC. They used to do a killer version of Underwater World from Hanoi Rocks.

From: danthecdman Date: March 31, 2003 at 23:03
Creeper, Actually I am from Wilkes-Barre which isn't too far from Scranton. I never got to see TLC play live. The band I used to go see all the time was Freefall. Any ideas what the members of TLC are up to today??

From: Date: April 1, 2003 at 2:22
I'll ask around and see what they are up to. Freefall were pretty good. After Freefall broke up a few of the guys got together with Russ from Arc Angel (remember them? great original scranton band ala Bon Jovi ish sound) started a band called Fallen Angel. Not as good as either of the bands before it. A band i was in opened for TLC a few times at a place called Sea-Sea's in Moosic. I still see the Original Sin cd at some used shops around town. Didn't realize there was a big demand for it.

From: creeper Date: April 1, 2003 at 2:22
the above post is mine. forgot to add my name. sorry.

From: MButt Date: April 1, 2003 at 4:00
Hi Creeper, if you run across TLC-serious trouble, or TLC-judgment day please let me know. I am looking for these for my collection. we can talk cash deal or trade. thanks. MButt buttfamily@frontiernet.net

From: creeper Date: April 1, 2003 at 13:38
I'll keep my eyes open for you.

From: danthecdman Date: April 2, 2003 at 2:24
Creeper, What was the name of the band you were in? I remember Arc Angel. I believe towards the end of their career (?) they actually had the drummer from Twisted Sister in their ranks. As for Freefall, two of their members are currently in the band Liquid A.

From: creeper Date: April 2, 2003 at 14:52
I was in a band called Personality Crisis and also played with a band called Tribes for a brief time. We played at Market Street Square, Jitterbugs, The Cabaret, Gallaghers, Staircase, etc.. I remember AJ from Twisted being in Arc Angel. That had to be a culture shock from being in Twisted to playing clubs in Scranton. There is a good story behind Arc Angel's demise. Adultery, thievery, drug abuse, they would make a good behind the music. Carl from Arc Angel is now the guitarist in Manowar.

From: BrianJ8173 Date: April 20, 2003 at 12:31
I need a copy of The TLC cd's original or cdr anyone having one please email me at BrianJ8173@aol.com. Thanks

From: Geoff Date: August 26, 2004 at 9:01
This band has a good name in the genre and while I think this is pretty good solid hard rock, I am not surprised at all that it's an indie release and they never got a label deal. They do an okay job with the hard rock sound, but I take away nothing too exciting from this disc at all and label it average hard rock. Decent enough but not great. Would still like to hear the second CD.

From: CRAIGDUFRESNE Date: September 5, 2004 at 18:04

From: z4roxx Date: January 13, 2005 at 22:38
Geoff,I really appreciate your comments,you describe with high precision these bands,not an awesome band but pretty good,the paragon heard with Joker(USA)and Intuition is right!TLC production is really much more good than Intuition but I prefer these last.But nothin'to see with Joker,hard rock Godz for me!!

From: Geoff Date: April 27, 2005 at 1:29
My apologies if I post twice on a specific CD or 2, but will only do so when worthwhile. I have had this one spinning a few times recently, and must admit it's a little better than I first thought. Comparable slighlty to Inside Out and Crush (though nowhere near as good as either), this is a nice little US indie disc. The first 4 songs and 'Nights in the city' are picks - great hard rockers, and continuing the comparisons, I'd call it better than Jillson's disc, I believe Maybe. Good stuff.

From: Axe Attack Date: January 22, 2006 at 12:28
I only have the 1st 4 songs and they're great! If anyone has a copy, contact me through the message board, thanx!!

From: metalalways Date: April 4, 2008 at 15:38
This indie kicks some serious ass the lead singer sounds like bruce dickinson from iron maiden but the music sounds alot heavier this indie cd is very rare and very hard to find no wonder it goes for crazy high prices i've never heard serious trouble yet but i'm sure it rocks hard as this one does the first song without love is very fast clock strikes midnight is fast all the songs rock each in their own way if you don't have this one get it.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: July 7, 2011 at 20:41
Acceptable release with some good hot hard rocking tracks...best ones IMHO are "Open Hearted" & "Mrs Beazley-Mr French"...another goodies are "Island Of Steel"(rocks good),"Without Love","Clock Strikes Midnight" & "Original Sin"...voice standart but good...'nuff said...82/100
