Ann Wilson, Heart. I saw them support Def Leppard 2-3 years ago and here voice was AT LEAST as good as in 1986. Love this video clip. Thanks MSL.

At least you guys could listen to it. I got: "The owner of this track has not made this sound available for streaming in your location." Bugger!

To be honest Addy, from what I've heard the songs are... not the standard I normally associate with JP. I may listen to a few ore songs but my guess is that few will be bought on the iTunes cache. I thought the production on Nostradamus was terrible too, but there is a live version of Prophecy on the "A Touch Of Evil Live" CD and it is awesome.

Playing "Sound Of Thunder" now, sounds great! Very much in the classic Lynch Mob / Dokken style. Very much to my liking! Thanks for the tip!

I've enjoyed all the X-men films and was a fan of the comics from a way back. "Days..." surprised me since it was much more drama- and character-driven than I'd expected but as usual, excellent performances all round and great entertainment.

...back in the days before the internet, it was an influence on my purchasing but far less so now. And back in the day there were examples of great covers, lousy music and great music with lousy covers. And the other combinations also :) It is surely better for an artist to be remembered for the great songs rather than the fact they had a nice album cover? I am not denigrating the experi

I enjoyed viewing the performance and while not note-perfect, I think there were moments of greatness there. Who knows how much practice Steve had before venturing on stage? To my knowledge this was his first public performance in years and perhaps deserves a little benefit of the doubt! Very few singers can hit 50-60 and still sound as great as they did in their 20s-30s-40s. There have been m

I listened to this and also the first song they let out of the bag a couple of weeks back. I posted on that too and this is more of the same. Dreary and dreadful, a far cry from their illustrious history. Sad to hear.

It's great entertainment and really well done IMHO. I'll have to get it on Blu-Ray since the titles had so much detail I would really want to study them! For those commenting earlier, the director is British and the tone of the movie is really quite serious - more in line with the 1954 original but with a different angle. Some really intelligent reworkings of the core concept but not so far i

I know it's cheesy stuff but I have a soft spot for "The Big G" from childhood. We just came back from the reboot and I'm pleased to say it didn't disappoint and I think it would appeal to diehards and newbies alike. Even my wife enjoyed it and she's not a fan at all. She remarked on the quality of the acting and of course the SFX are to die for. Far from the men in rubber suits of old.

Hard to believe he's been gone 4 years. I saw him with the Sabs, Dio and H&H probably 9, 10 times in all and NEVER saw him give a dud performance. A true rock music legend who will live forever. To Mick2112 - thank you for posting the acoustic perfomance of Rainbow In The Dark. I never thought that would work acoustically but they made a great job of it IMHO and I also think RJD would have

That is a great review Andy, thank you, the only downer is that it makes me feel sad that I wasn't there! What a great festival and one can only hope it will be repeated!

The debut was certainly a great album. Seems odd that he wants to seperate this from COT given that much of the promotion celebrates the writing partnership that gave rise to the debut album of... er, COT..! Has the COT sound moved on much since the 1st album? I only have the one after (which wasn't as good IMHO) whose name escapes me.

I really rate Drenning's playing on the first 3 albums (don't have anything after that) so both sad and tragic his talent appears not to have been enough for him. Tragic also for the lives of those who were affected or perhaps lost through drug use.

I just found "Back For The Attack" here - not bad http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MWsiSijRU-Q They used to put some cool stuff on single B-sides back in the day. Some of this is now released on Rarities collections, others on Japanese-only editions... a few rereleases are putting the songs back with the albums they were originally timed for. I waited ages for Dio's original version

On the face of it, it seems pretty draconian to "time limit" Tate's reference to his stint in QR to just 2 years. However I read the post referred to by Perf in The Open Road forum and can understand why the band took such drastic measures. Like a really bitter, awful marriage breakup. Sad really. On a different note - the link on the Blabbermouth site has a clip of QR with Todd l

Can't believe no-one's mentioned John West yet! The guy has an armory of famous screams and other vocal intros! World Wide War and Game Of Fear (Royal Hunt) are possibly the most obvious choices, but how about these:! Hunted, The Mission, Day Is Dawning, Total Recall, Paper Blood... all with Royal Hunt and I haven't the time to go through Artension and Artlantica or his solo stuff, just suf

Europe. I just realised that when I saw them on the Start From The Dark tour with John Norum playing, they did songs like Girl From Lebanon which was written during Kee Marcello's stint with the band. I wish all bands would do that. Memories... Dio did that especially well. Every set would recognise Ronnie's stellar career with Rainbow and Sabbath. And most if not all prior albums.

I loved Heart in the 80s and was lucky enough to have seen them in 1986.... a great set... Alone, The Wolf, If Looks Could Kill, Bad Animals... but I saw them a couple of years ago, they were amazing and they still do Alone (albeit a less bombastic version!) and These Dreams. I know what you mean though... I've read comments from the Wilson sisters in the past, think they would prefer to forget t

Just played the single and title track of the new album. Great cover art but the song for me does not bode well for the rest of the album. Uninspiring metal-by-numbers and Rob sounds...well, not like Rob. If the rest of the album is like this, I reckon KK had the right idea....

Haven't seen Yngwie in years but he did from memory always play some songs from Odyssey live. Certainly one of his finest albums but IMHO his output up to and including Facing The Animal was pretty consistent. Attack! and Unleash The Fury had their moments but after that.... I agree with the comments on Ozzy's Ultimate Sin and the Tony Martin era of Sabbath too. Great stuff.

She seems nice and has a decent voice to these ears. Pretty too but that dark eye shadow does her no favors whatsoever...! Are the backing musicians the same as those who play on the Issa albums? I thought the guitars were a SHADE low in the mix but I'd give it the benefit of the doubt and probably check this out on release.

That's an interesting observation from Carl, to be honest I listened to all the samples on ITunes and played a couple of the promo videos and, "Rat Race" aside, it didn't really grab me at all. My experience was similar with Karma, though there were more songs that grabbed me immediately. I accept there are albums/bands where you have to listen more intently and often to "get"
