Ah! God bless ya dude! My copy of the new Collective Soul just dropped through the door today so I haven't had a listen yet but I hope you like their other stuff too.

About this resurgence business. As you well know, I believe it's happening here and now but it's taking a long time for those of us still hung up on big hair and spandex to get it, and I don't mean to dis anyone specifically with that comment.
I LOVE ICON and I've recently been getting all dewey eyed over WHITE SISTER again, but I just don't see that music with that image coming back into the mainstream. I'm sorry.

There's a whole new generation of music buyers (er...downloaders, that is!) who need something to call their own and that is what I believe the 'New Breed' is doing.Delivering the goods with a different sheen on.

As long as there's specialist labels like N&T and Z there will always be melodic rock, but I'm sure even they would agree that they don't see major labels breaking out the cheque books to sign their bands at this time.

This post will run and run I'm sure. All I'm saying is don't let your allegiances with bands of the past let you miss out on what's going on NOW. There's a shitload of great music out there. Let's embrace it, not fight it.
