Hmmm, always did wonder why you would recommend me the likes of Tyketto and Beggars & Thieves without hesitation but never have them playing over the shop speakers... Aria chart madness LOL.

BUT, have to agree Two Fires was one of Barnes' best albums. I honestly preferred the rawness (not sure if that's the word that best describes it, actually referring more to the material than the production if that makes sense?) of For The Working Class Man, but I'd happily say Two Fires was indeed his next best. Freight Train was great but like you said, too polished but gotta say The Last Frontier was and remains one of my personal favorites.

When Lay Down Your Guns was released as a single pre album release the departure from the previous albums was immense but it worked so well! The only song I still don't care so much for is the Dianne Warren co-write Let's Make It Last All Night LOL. But the rest is like you said, top notch... Little Darling (brilliant), Fade To Black, Between Two Fires, super album and honestly while he still had plenty left in the tank, t'was the last of the 'classic' Barnes albums (for a time at least)

That's tomorrow's listening sorted then thanks ;)
