I agree

and indeed I know I'm swimming against the tide of opinion round here (if not the wider world) by dissing Icon. Like you say, no big deal, I'm sure they won't lose any sleep that I don't like them - they may even take it as a vindication of their music :-)

Diamond Head, I reckon, were too good for everybody. Canterbury was too complex and subtle for a fanbase expecting "Am I evil again?" and they work in the Eastern / folk thing much better than say, Zeppelin, although the Zeppelin influence is obvious... I recommend the next acoustic show whole-heartedly. As for Robin, yes I disagree, but I long since stopped trying to work out why I like him and no-one else much does. Maybe, just maybe, it's cos he's rubbish and I can't see it or maybe I alone am gifted with insight into his music. More likely the first of those explanations but I love everything he's done. The EP is great, the Dangerous Music album is in a (his own) unique style of funky pop rock AOR and the Notorious CD is an incredible achievement, I think I'll go and listen to the guitar solo in "Touch" right now! He has a new album due out soon, fingers crossed he doesn't suffer from the self-inflicted wounds of yesteryear. See you've started me now about Robin - I'm as bad as Kaos fan and bloody Heartland.
