No problem, Hanuk. I won't/can't argue with you on your taste in music. I just wanted to point out some things I felt was stange with your post, from my personal perspective (and still think the Dare comparison is very out of place). You're entitled though. It's all good. // Figge

Fantastic, Ross.....thanks! Will keep on digesting those releases and I'll start with Afraid of Sunlight tonight then. Marbles seem to be a very appreciated album. I listened to it on Spotify a while back but it didn't grab my attention. That's the thing though....Marillion usually/always takes some time to absorb and any help where to place the concentration and focus is appreciated. I pla

I've been investigating all the Steve Hogarth albums last couple of days. The only album I've listened to a little more is Brave....but been trying to catch up. Much to wrap your head around. I'd like to know what Marillion fans think of all the Hogarth albums. *Which is the best, in your opinion? *The most accessible, commercial? *The most complex, progressive *How would you descr

I knew that was what you wanted someone to bait for. I didn't, but I certainly wondered about how you got three letters in Toto? With your "rule" that's only two letters. I swore to not lower myself to your level here.... *sigh* // Figge

I actually agree. Not talkning generally now but I just hate those keyboards on this song. Good song otherwise. // Figge

Yeah, love that album. Not as good as Aria, but I think it's better than Silent Nation. Interesting thing about your favourite tracks there, Shade, as I happen to have totally different picks. Great musicians (especially Guthrie Govan's contributions), excellent sound and some fantastic songs. // Figge

It was a real slow introduction for me with the RĂ¿che. First song I heard was Before The Storm, on the radio. It was on the one and only hard rock radio show we had here back then. Then my brother recorded The Warning on tape and I listened to it a couple of times....mildly impressed, to be honest. Later, I saw the video for Queen Of The Reich and I actually thought it was a very cool song

" I was into them even before I'd heard a note of theirs. It sounds strange, but it's true" LOL!!! It was the same for me with W.A.S.P. I was already a fan when I went to a local record shop where they had a lot of strange stuff. Mostly import. I listened to the Animal (F**k Like A Beast) 12" and bought it a couple of days later for the price of a full length. :-) When it

"Rage, Mindcrime, Empire. Absolutely fantastic 3 album run" Absolutely agree. Not many bands can match that run. " I know a lot of people hold Promised Land in fairly high regard now, but did anyone really like it that much when it came out?" I didn't, and still don't. There are a few songs that still show how brilliant this band once were...and a great production, ot

I just watched this video. Williams is struggling on some songs, some notes, but overall that is an OK performance. If he/they were sick and had an off night too, then I'd say they did a really fine job. I get where MSL is coming from though. I'm sure he'll find it harder and harder to maintain this level, Joseph. Hope he does though and that I'll get a chance to see them before he or they qui

Thanks for posting. I'm afraid I wasn't able to get into the latest albums at all. There was a point where I felt some songs started to grow on me and I was getting used to it....but I haven't listened to it in a couple of months. This song, Cadillac, is one of those I just can't warm to and the live version didn't convince me in any way. Some good songs, of course, but overall a huge disap

Blinded By Science is a good song, I'm no fan of Modern Day though. That one and Women, the albums stinker, are the only songs I don't like on Head Games. // Figge

Tooth And Nail is a great song, I just can't stand those mechanical sounds. It's highly annoying and totally ruins the song for me. :-( // Figge

I can agree with a couple of his choices. I'm having a hard time not to separate the band in eras. I love Mr. Moonlight and to some extent Inside Information, but they're so different compared to the first 4 albums.

Definitely familiar/similar, and sure, we can call it vulnerability. ;-) Certainly not convinced by those samples. There are absolutely hints of great stuff. Struggling a bit with Catley's rough(er) voice and the exact same drumming/drum sound, same guitar sound, same pacing etc. Some songs sounded more interesting than others but overall a feeling of "more of the same" more than a f

What about albums released 10-15 years ago that you rated highly? I have a whole bunch of those that I played the hell out of, but have no desire whatsoever to play nowadays. Strange isn't it? Something's definitely changed for me there. These "newer" albums will never have the impact those classic 70-80s albums have made on me (with very few exceptions). Age is a huge part of it, of

I've never been a fan of Armored Saint and the only album I've actually listened to from them is the debut, so I can't comment on "Delirious". As for your question, I'd like to say it's more common to be disappointed in albums you once thought were fantastic than the other way around. Once in a while you pick up an album you realize you haven't really listened to properly in a lot of

I think "Love Changes Everything" and "Tears On The Page" is excellent. I don't like Templeman's production though. Takes the life out of some great songs. // Figge

Hmm....Roack Candy?! :-O Cool. I think I'll have to seek that one up then (Big Prize). Yeah, I didn't get that. Usually they add crappy demos, B-side, live versions etc. Here's a track that were on the original version - and they leave it out!?!? WTF. // Figge
