Jason, you seem to have a problem with people expressing an opinion that doesn't concur with yours when it comes to Ten. Just because it's not positive, surely MetroGnome is allowed his isn't he? I personally think he pretty much nailed it to be honest. There's the odd track I don't mind on the first couple of albums but overall I find them predictable and lacking any dynamic, boring if you will. But as MG says, if people enjoy them great - they're just not for me.

And certainly not taking anything away from their achievements (their success in Japan is to applauded), but your argument that their success facilitated Now & Then's progression into a "powerhouse" doesn't really sit well with me. If like you say, 90% of the AOR albums that were released in the late '90s/early 2000s were down to Ten's success, then I bemoan the day they ever formed. You seem to remember those days as some sort of halcyon time for AOR, they weren't. Endless amounts of crap being released, but whenever you'd ring up your chosen mail-order company or read the fanzines it was always "sounds just like Journey" or "best AOR album ever" etc. At least now with the internet we can sample this stuff instead of being bullshitted out of our hard earned cash!

But hey, I'm getting slightly off topic here. Like you say, Ten are the typical "marmite" band - some people like them, some don't - deal with it.
