Exactly. All this buildup to what should have been a great cd, and it turned out so underwhelming. Put the Immortal production on Spirit of Man, and that one would have been received much better. Help us all if you put the Spirit of Man production on the Immortal tracks. Unreleaseable would be a good word.

Don't get me wrong. I like most of Legends, but instead of writing the "lost Magnum album" again, he just wrote song he would like to hear Bob Catley sing....or songs that could have been used for Ten. It sound pretty good, but you are losing the identity of a "Bob Catley" album.

Dragons are Real always seemed a bit heavy-handed lyrically, like Clarkin was trying too hard. See How They Fall, on the new album, is VERY much All England's Eyes style.
