They have a fourth album (I think it's their best work).

The key to Hey Man is the brilliant "Out of the Underground," quite possibly the best thing they've ever done.

I enjoy several tracks off of each album with Morse, and this is no exception. Very strong for a late-career band, and there are 3-5 truly outstanding tracks. No, it's not Machine Head, though.

Agree that it's very good. The key was brining in their producer-guitarist in addition to Ronnie Platt. He brought a lot of material, and it was good stuff.

It could be that he was just being gracious to Arnel, who was clearly NOT in good voice that night. Had Perry sung and sung reasonably well, there would be a firestorm for his return to Journey and no further acceptance of AP.

BNB's Without Love was the most commercial-sounding one.

Agree. Lynch is starting to get some really unique (and excellent) tones out of that Telecaster. Like Jeff Beck, he seems to have pulled back from so much processing, and he's letting his fingers determine more of the sound. It's a late-career renaissance for him.

Triumph - Thunder Seven David Lee Roth - Skyscraper (wrong singles) Mr. Big - Hey Man (where they put it all together) Jerry Cantrell - Degradation Trip (as good as any Alice In Chains album) Black 'n Blue - Without Love (came at a lull for that kind of metal - had it been released in '87 or '88, and with a label push, it might have been huge)

Albums are dead. Bring on a 4-5 track EP. They'll not have room for more than 1-2 new songs in a set anyway.

They've got enough slower songs now that an all-ballad compilation might be kind of nice. Call My Name, Sister Christian, Let Him Run, Sentimental Street, Goodbye, Hearts Away, Restless Kind, Forever All Over Again, Don't Ask Me Why, There Is Life, Fool In Me, Time of Our Lives, Don't Live Here Anymore, Only For You, We Can Work It Out, Nothing Left of Yesterday. (And Precious Time.)

To me, Paul Weller has a really noticeable accent when singing. Likewise John Lydon. And especially the guys in Lynyrd Skynyrd.

Wow! That's fantastic. After such long careers, it still SOUNDS like them, but it's interesting to hear both Dough and George breaking some new ground. The keyboards in the bridge . . . the guitar chords in the verse sections . . . both pretty unique for those two. I'm buying this one.

He was a rarity in the modern music world . . . and endless well-spring of positivity who pretty much only worked with the best musicians. He was a genre unto himself.

I prefer 40-45 minutes of new music, but I don't mind having a longer track or two. Great Expectations was wonderful, and so was A Better World. Most importantly, though, they need to not lose control of the project between final mix and the mastering. Something was off on this last project, and it really hurt the final product even though the songs were among the best of their career. Al

There's some really interesting harmonies on that one. More of a grower, but I like it. Really dig George Lynch's playing in this context.

No, but there are some really good melodic songs on Astra. I think his peak was U.K. or the first Asia album, but his more recent work had much more emotional depth. Asia's Omega and XXX had some fantastic and really moving songs.

He was the key link between prog rock and melodic rock, with musical sensibilities closer to prog but a sublime voice and sense of melody that simplified and made more musical any phrase that he wrote. His late-career renaissance and work ethic were truly fantastic as there are wonderful songs included in those last four Asia albums, the three Icon albums, and his solo project with Billy Sherwoo
