I will take issue with you on several points. It all boils down to tastes and opinions (versus right or wrong).

"For me personnaly, Heartland's music has no passion"

I am very sure that Chris and Steve do not not sit down and deliberately try to write music that is passionless to them. I do not think that writing that their music "has no passionl" is a very fair comment to make. In particular, I would think that most artists strive to put their passion into their art. To write in your opinion that the artist has failed to accomplish one of the most fundamental aspects in their effort heads into the "cruel to be kind" territory. I suspect that writing "Heartland's music does not stir my passions" would reflect your opinion without taking a cheap shot at the band (which I doubt was your true intention).

"Cranted Ousey's voice is great sometimes, he's is better when he pushes his voices in a higher range"

I have the completely opposite opinion. One of the best Heartland songs I have ever heard was "This Is Christmas" (which Andrew posted a few years back). The song is done with only Steve on acoustic guitar and Chris on vocals. The song is fairly slow paced and Chris never has to push his voice.

"I think it's time for a change of label for those guys as the promotion they have had hasn't exactly been fruitful"

This is a real cheap shot at Escape. Your implication is that somehow Escape is holding Heartland back and that N&T or Z who do more to promote their bands via live gigs would somehow make a big difference to the band. The market is so small that I jusr don't see how a label or promotion change would matter that much, at least sales wise.

barking on,
Big Doggie
