It all depends on the room, the interior and what color scheme you'd want. I'd like to match the covers as much as possible (in terms of style and coloring). I love Heaven & Hell and Rising, BTW. Fly By Night is cool too. // Figge

Nope, agree with you, totobob. Certainly not unique in any way and I'm not sold. Some good songs but like some others here, I just can't warm to the vocals. // Figge

Hate the whole concept. Albums/bands tend to sound too samey without it being the same producer, same backing band and same guy mixing it. Way too often the same team has also written the whole album(s). I've felt the same with Fabrizio Grozzi, Erik MÃ¥rtensson, Magnus Karlsson, Dennis Ward, Ale Del Vecchio etc. I understand the deal with this way of working but it just doesn't work for me,

Yep...totally agree with you on that, Terry. The last two has been more classic, melodic and moved more and more away from that "modern rock" sound (seriously, when will it be dated instead of modern?). Wise move, IMO. // Figge

Absolutely AMAZING achievement and of course, I congratulate the club and all their supporters. It's the biggest surprise I (or anybody, actually) have seen and I'm sure we'll never see anything like it in the future either. Refreshing to see it can be done. // Figge

Sure, Steel The Light had some fantastic songs (loved about 50% of the album), and When The Mirror Cracks is also really good. The latter had a (then) more "modern" sound, which today sounds really dated, but the songs are excellent. I thought Jonathan K and Even Sheeley's band Nightshade was horrible though, so not sure what to expect from a new Q5 album, to be honest. Will defin

It's an OK album, IMHO, but so far I think "Time Of My Life" is slightly better. The predecessor is just as melodic but a little edgier and more rocking in places. // Figge

My thoughts too. It's an OK album but somewhat lacking in the song department (especialy memorable choruses). The songs have grown on with repeated plays but still nothing spectacular and I wouldn't call the album great. Apart from the absence of memorable choruses I still struggle a bit with Freeman's vocals. Sure, there are hints of Holy Diver and The Last in Line but to say they sound like

Ok, thanks Steve....I'm checking 'em out on Spotify, right now. This whole different versions and re-recording of tracks on each album has put me off from listening to them, but so far I like what I'm hearing. Loved Goin' All The Way and Goin' Goin' Gone. I like Laine's voice better hear than on The Defiants (or more his way of singing than the voice). // Figge

I agree with Adolfo, Behind Closed Doors is their best album. I'd also second that just about every album contains some excellent songs but they all have some fillers. Their best songs are fantastic though. Two of my favourites.... River of Pain (Behind Closed Doors, 1995) Amy's On The Run (The Magnificent Seventh, 2005) // Figge

"Have you heard Vagabond Figge, if so what did you think?" Yeah, I've heard them both...quite some time ago now though, but I wasn't too thrilled, to be honest. Apart from a couple of songs off each album I found 'em a bit too quirky and ambitious (for lack of a better word). I expected more from Ronnie and Jorn. I love Jorn's vocals on those albums though. Never heard, or hear

I still rate Worldchanger as his best album, but Spirit Black is a close second. Outside his own project I'd have a very hard time deciding between Ark's Burn The Sun and Masterplan's Aeronautics. I really like Millenium - Hourglass too, but I'm no huge fan of the sound on that disc (especially the guitars). Great songs though and masterful vocals from Lande. I thought his contributions to

I like it more than I expected to. Some great songs and a couple I'm not as impressed with, solid production but I hate the album cover. :-) One thing that bothers me though. I don't like Paul Laine's way of bending words, or how he accentuates words here and there. A kind of twang that I feel is unnecessary. Great voice otherwise. Only a couple of spins in and I'm sure it will grow on me f

I heard it first in 1983 when a friend of mine bought the single. I thought it was fantastic, and no matter how many versions I'll get to hear and no matter how many times I hear that song - it will always be a monster! Still love it and it's still one of my favourite Journey songs. I doubt I'll ever tire as much of it as some of you guys seem to have. // Figge

I totally agree, Troy! Not a wise move from labels. I'd definitely rather hear samples of all tracks than selected full songs. That is more in the vein of how it used to work....hear a few good songs, buy the album and find out the album is a huge disappointment. Perhaps that is the strategy? Let people hear only a few selected tracks to "fool" people into buying? No, I'll wait till

I totally agree with Lyncho about H&H and Mob Rules. I too prefer Rising over the debut when it comes to Rainbow....I do not agree about Man On The Silver Mountain though! :-) I love that song, and there are a few more gems on the debut (mainly The Temple of the King and Sixteenth Century Greensleeves), but sad to admit that the production lets it down a bit. Really like the album but Risi

I was very late discovering this album too, Act. I heard it for the very first time about 10 years ago and I found it interesting enough and pretty enjoyable. Not that spectacular though, to be honest. I haven't listened to it in a couple of years so I'll rectify that as soon as possible now that you've reminded me of it. :-) // Figge

Impossible to say for me, because I rate them after albums, not eras. The least favoured era would be Black Sabbath, mostly due to it only featured two albums of which I really like one. I'd rate the something like this.... Holy Diver Rising Heaven & Hell The Last In Line Ritchie Blackmore's Rainbow Long Live Rock'n'Roll Sacred Heart Mob Rules .....the rest. // Figge

"All I meant was that I really liked what I heard and didn't find it wildly off the mark of what rock fans would enjoy" Sure, I understood that part. I don't get the "expectation" part though and it's been thrown around these parts from time to time. Just take a look at this board as an example...we are all here because we share our "passion" for melodic rock, AOR

"I am sometimes ( alright a lot of times ) confused about what people want. I don't mean to start anything but name a band or artist that has been making records for 25-30 years that has made you same record over and over again and you you're a fan of all of it?" I actually don't see your point here, Harry. You answered the question yourself. What people want to hear is not relevan

Once again, I wholeheartedly agree with you, blm. I've asked myself that many, many times....where did the melodies go?!?! Dio suddenly totally lost the ability to write a melodic song and how is that possible with all the songs he had written prior to Dream Evil? Is it all due to writing partners? Puzzling. // Figge
