Mine has the booklet. I must say, I'm pleasantly surprised with this release. I'm enjoying little twists on the Going For the One material, and it's fun to hear them loosen up on something like "A Venture." It's not perfect, and I wish it were a bit more energetic, but it sounds pretty good overall.

A commercial release of NDV playing Genesis' "The Lamb Lies Down On Broadway" with Kevin Gilbert fronting the band finally comes next month.

Correct. But Smith has a couple of really strong pop albums credited to him (Mayfield and his solo album). They were done with A LOT of input from Charlton Pettus, but they're both really good with strong melodic songs. He brought that back into Tears For Fears for the reunion album and made the project better for it.

This is better. Most of my favorite albums are between 35-45 minutes. There is rarely an increase in quality when albums are stretched to fit CD running times.

Last time he had his muse was on Marching To Mars. Subsequent to that, he's never done an album with more than 1-3 good songs with exception of the Chickenfoot projects. He should work with Joe again whether or not it's Chickenfoot because that's the only thing that's worked for him in 15-20 years.

I think I'd rather have my sister spend a day with Jian Ghomeshi than I would like to study a One Direction tune.

They worked with Fabrizio Grossi using songs co-written by him and Brian Tichy . . . ?

I noticed the thing about Eric's voice starting with the last album. His rasp was still there, but it had a different quality . . . slightly strained. I think he did a better job working around it on the new album, but I could see how some of the older material might suffer a little. But only a little . . with their backing vocals and great musicianship, I think the band still works.

How did they sound live? Great band, but I imagine it might be tough to reproduce such a dense sound. And what about Mecca? Their last album was one of the best of its year.

Get his last album, Dr. Faith. There's several really great songs on it. Best is probably "Hey Kid," which also features a guitar solo from Eric Johnson. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eos4VfRo-BI

Andy Sturmer released a track as a solo artist last year. It was a cover of a song by the Japanese band "Unicorn" for a tribute album done for them. It's the first I've heard Sturmer singing lead for a LONG time.

Would have been better to use a new project name unless they plan to tour with songs featured from each album.

Very melodic songs; really good band. So good that we won't hold it against their leader that he likes the complete bore that is cricket.

I'd like to see Tooth n' Nail, Women (sung by Jeff?), and That Was Yesterday.

I don't think they really fell out. Instead, I would guess that Logan has either personal or business issues that aren't allowing a fuller commitment.

He's really good. The song Hey Kid (with Eric Johnson, from his last album) is outstanding melodic rock.

Not very country-ish to me at all. They've got a bit of the Americana vibe, though. The heavier moments of Wilco would be a good comparison.

Indeed. And Bickler absolutely is a real man of genius.

Not to me. The drumming that Steve Pace brought to Headhunter (a change of pace?) made that album so much more diverse and interesting. I'd agree that song for song, the best competition is Metal Rendezvous. Most of their albums have 3-4 really good songs and little else. That's how I feel about Hardware, One Vice, The Blitz, and Change of Address.

Why not just have Bickler do it?

Wow, Andy Pearce did a nice job with this one. I haven't liked all the Rock Candy remasters, but this one strikes a good balance without ruining the dynamics. Their best album, for sure, and one of my favorites from the early 80s.

"Finally Fading" was original a solo tune done by the singer with some help from none other than Jellyfish's Andy Sturmer.

I'd take a 70s vibe over an 80s vibe any day.
