Hi Mark, thanks for taking time out to give us some real Ten news!

In places you´ve misunderstood me. I am not really an AOR fan, much more into melodic metal w/ virtuoso guitar, so a heavy Ten album would be much welcomed. Nonetheless, to these ears Spellbound just didn´t cut it. Personal taste and for sure if Babylon has as much Iron Maiden influence as Spellbound did then I´m not gonna like it much.

Have to comment on this:

"I`d say "Babylon" has quite a few heavy songs on it. The whole thing generally rocks pretty hard throughout. There may be more
rhythm guitars on "Babylon" than "Spellbound", but there`s probably less lead guitar as the material is telling a story so has a lot
of vocals and also with Don Airey`s involvement there are more keyboard solos than before."

IMHO "more heavy" and "less lead guitar" are mutually exclusive in this particular genre. Especially where more keyboard solos are involved. Nonetheless, I´ll buy it - and hope my fears are unfounded. Thanks again.
