"Regarding the bandname, there was a band called Dust already in the early seventies if my memory serves me..." True, Lyncho. I have one of their albums, called "Hard Attack". I think it's from 1972, or something. // Figge

I totally agree, rocknut. I bought the vinyl (No Sweat) due to the hype and some positive reviews. I liked "On The Edge"....and that was about it. The rest was average, at best, IMHO. // Figge

"Agree you will not find many whoa whoa's on their latest releases so a lot on here wont get it..." Do you seriously believe that is what's been missing? A not so well disguised try to diminish the people that "don't get" the last 3-4 albums, I'm guessing.You say you like the debut and Belief the most. Compare Under The Sun or King Of Dreams to anything off Belief and I thi

If this is a more uptempo release (not necessarily more rocking) and a return to the more straight forward AOR/Melodic Rock of the debut....I will be very interested and I'm certainly looking forward to hearing it. Andrew and blm's words intrigues me and makes me anticipate the album. Out Of The Silence is one of my absolute favourites, ever. // Figge

The face expression comments is getting more repetetive and predictable than his last couple of albums. *Sigh* I totally agree with Peter here though. I feel the exact same way. He is singing everything in the same way and it's like he's lost that melodic vocal touch he once had. Another thing I realized while listening to this cover version was how much it reminded me of Blacksong, from Th

I can't say this news gets me excited. You can obviously never know what to expect from these guys, considering their history, and speaking of their musical output in the last 20 years....I agree, Bruce....apart from the fact that My Religion was a damn good record! One great album in 20 years isn't very impressive though. My guess is that this "reunion" doesn't involve Morty Blac

Nope, does nothing for me. Too AC/DC and to be honest, nothing memorable at all. Hope they don't stay in this plod for the whole album and since I don't like AC/DC I certainly hope there is another dimension song wise. There is no way I would've guessed this was Q5 had I not known. // Figge

I wouldn't call the Holland album awful, but personally, I've never cared for it and compared to other albums mentioned and released at the time I think it's pretty weak (Icon, King Kobra, Grand Prix and Q5). My guess is that most of us regulars here can relate to your experiences, Don. People here are way more genuinely interested, informed and curious than most music fans. I wasn't satisfied

Hardly obscure but in all honesty, I don't have many albums people here would call obscure. However, someone might've missed some of these not so obvious ones.... Winter Rose - Winter Rose (1989) Melodic hard rock with Richard Chycki and James LaBrie Wall Of Silence - Shock To The System (1992) Anything involving Mike Slamer is worht checking out. Misha Calvin - Evolution (1993)

Great album! I had never heard that song though. I liked it a lot....wish it would've been on the original release. // Figge

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 Mårtensson, 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
