Not surprised for a second. Where's the dynamics? Some people hear it - others don't. // Figge

I think they lost a lot with the department of Pontus Norgren. I'm not that fond of Henke Bergkvist's style, to be honest. There are always some songs I really like on all their albums though....and this song, Life Without You, is excellent! Love it! // Figge

"At least Mindfields has great sonics :)" :-D I agree, both Tambu and Mindfields sounds a lot better than XIV. Mad About You and Caught In The Balance are among my favourite Toto songs, ever. There are a couple of songs that might rival those two in the future but I think the second half of the disc is pretty weak. // Figge

"I'm still amazed how good those early albums stood the test of time sonically speaking" I agree, Peter. Fantastic recordings, especially the debut. // Figge

I enjoyed the first listen to the album. Will give it a few more spins. Might just order a copy. Great job, guys. // Figge

Agreed! The songwriting is fantastic, at least half of the album is (as expected) excellent, though the best tracks were the ones I had alreday heard. The only thing that isn't totally in line with my taste is the overall sound on the disc. Quite a disappointement in that department. I hated the sound on Falling In Between too....so not that big a surprise, I guess. Excellent album anyway!

I'd like to recommend Asia's "Aria", from 1994. Excellent progressive melodic rock. // Figge

I totally agree. I don't like the sound/mixing/production (call what you want) at all. Very muddy, bottom heavy and brick walled. Quite a disappointment . . . especially after reading interviews with Lukather saying this will be a real Hifi album. Some fantastic songs on teh albums, but the sound is a total letdown compared to Tambu, for example. // Figge

"Don't cause tension on the scene which you live in" I totally agree, 100%. What's the purpose? // Figge

I'm having problems with this album. Can't decide which foot I stand on. Some of it makes me think "this is pure genious" but then again, some of it is drivel of the highest order. The lyrics, which is something I rarely care very much about, is so cheesy and silly it actually bothers even me. Meine's voice is also something I tend to struggle with from time to time. Overall it'

Spot on, Scott. I find that strange too. I visit the front page almost daily, and this place (noticeboard) is one of the first sites I go to. Just today I had a quick run through of the new samples on the front page . . . Windsor Drive - Interesting. Quite good lite pop. Dan Reed - Sounded extremely boring Serpentine - Pretty solid samples...though it sounded like a carbon copy of Te

Yeah, I know Tony. Just kidding, of course. :-) The Murdoch trio didn't excite me very much, very competent musicians though. Instrumental music seldomly interests me. I can live with that too and enjoy it as much as you like, mate...and keep on sharing. :-) // Figge

"It will still get slated by people who actually like the CD but dare not say so ....." ....and it will get praised from blind fans who refuse to acknowledge the fact that David can't sing anymore. Even if they don't really like the album there will be praise for it, because Cov is old now and we can't expect him to sing like he used to and we should all be extremely happy he's sti

These are the best ones I've heard this year.... Revolution Saints - Revolution Saints Jorn Lande & Trond Holter - Swing of Death Eclipse - Armageddonize Thunder - Wonder Days SOTO - Inside The Vertigo From what I've heard, Toto - XIV will most definitely be on the list too, of course. The best song: Revolution Saints - Locked Out Of Paradise Funny how some songs just clic

For me it would be . . . Judas Priest - Screaming For Vengeance Judas Priest is definitely the most "metal" of the classic bands (in my definition of the term). I think even Holy Diver is touching more on the hard rock label. Number of The Beast is a great example too though, and of course Defenders of The Faith. So, one of those albums defines the classic Heavy Metal genr

It all depends on the stereo equipment. On my computer speakers it's mostly just bass - all lower frequencies sound the same and it's a lot harder to spearate the nuances and different sounds. I have no problem to do so on my living room equipment though, or my headphones, for that matter. I want to hear everything going on so I find that a very important part of the listening experience nowad

Some really cool ones already mentioned (like Rising, Holy Diver, Mean Streak, Script For A Jester's Tear, Hysteria etc.). For me there's a huge difference between a nice/cool looking cover without thinking of the music on offer and a cover that just totally suits the music and vibe of an album and makes it cool for that reason. Magnum "On a Storyteller's Night" for instance, is o

A very talented guy, no doubt. 27 min songs just isn't for me though. I even struggle with the opener (The Call), clocking in at over 10 min. I'll try the album when I'm in a better, more suited mood for it. // Figge
