I'd imagine that there are 2 main reasons why this happened (maybe still happens). 1. The actual chaps in the band can't play well enough to record the songs to the right standard (as defined by the producer/record company, of course). That was allegedly the case with the drummer from Cinderella who apparently couldn't play at all well in the studio, but was fine live... I'm sure there are oth

Absolutely brilliant show! All bands were really good. Romeo's Daughter and FM obviously in a different league to No Hot Ashes, but the opening act were still good! Great set lists all round too...

My favourite artist of all time and LiO is my favourite album of all time too. Looking forward to hearing some new music from the man soon, hopefully...

It's probably all down to money - doing an extra mix/master costs more beans = less profit for record company...

Really strong album. Enjoying it immensely. Peterik/Scherer is very good too - much better than last Pride of Lions, IMHO...

Yeah, I think it was all the co-writes or being forced to play songs by outside writers that made them cross... Fair enough I suppose, but the fact is that many of those songs were their better tracks (well, at least to a lot of us melodic rock fans anyway)!!!

I can hear a load of similarity to Toby Hitchcock, but also to Dennis De Young. I think Scherer sounds very much like Dennis on some of these tracks and some of the more pomp-esque or rock-operas-esque moments have little echoes of Styx as well as the very obvious PoL and Survivor influences. Great album all told. Am really enjoying it... Way better than the last PoL one IMHO...

I really like that!!!! Powerful, hooky, ticks all the right boxes for me... Given the recent tour with Eric Church I can actually imagine Eric (or similar) doing a Country-rock version of that track...

...And we should, of course, remember that they are currently on tour promoting a new album with a limited setlist time. What are they gonna do? I think we all know the answer to that one! :-) Some of the comments from some people above about the setlist seem extremely naive, as what Europe should be doing is whatever they want to do! A band that has been going that long has the right to do th

I have been having a DVD clearout and I thought that some of you might like to know that the following DVDs are available for sale. I thought I'd post on here before going to EBAY. Valentine: Live at Firefest IV Jeff Scott Soto: Live at the Gods 2002 Harem Scarem: Raw & Rare Loud & Clear: Louder Than Ever £10 each plus postage (cost of that depends on where you are in the world)

That's great advice Steve! I play in a rock covers band and we tend to mix up the stuff we do, so we get a few 'less well known' tracks in there (e.g. Heaven and hell & Neon Knights by Sabbath) as well as the obvious... Bryan Adams stuff always goes down well. So does Bon Jovi (although there's always somebody that HATES BJ in most pubs...)we do Prayer and Wanted Dead or Alive by BJ. Thes

Very polite message left on Facebook!! I always think that being polite is the best way to go, as being an arse in these situations rarely achieves results! :-) I really hope that Frontiers do a left turn on this one, as it would be great for more to be able to hear it. Jimi and Fergie are icons of melodic rock and I'm sure that more than 500 people worldwide would want to access the music...

Hilarious!! Voted either most or second most fastest guitarist in the world by Tom, Dick, Harry and his dog...chuckle... Does anybody older than 17 actually care about that kind of 'prowess' any more???? Does the fella play great tunes in with all the neoclassical noodle-doodly, and is the album full of thumping great songs, that's the BIG question... Hopefully the answer is 'yes'...

No offence to Kris, who clearly really didn't like what he heard, but I do wish people would refrain from words like 'dreadful' when commenting on music like this. Ok, if one doesn't like it, that's totally fine, but bands like Europe don't do 'dreadful...they are far too talented to be 'dreadful'... ;-) I do struggle with some of the newer 'down-tuned' Europe songs on CD, but live they reall

Read JP's autobiography to see why there will never be any kind of Survivor reunion. I know it's only one side of the story, but, well...read it and see! I'm always happy to see JP releasing new material. Great songwriter.

Apparently all posts on the Firefest FB page about this event are being deleted to avoid potential confusion over the non-involvement of the Firefest organisers... If the line up is good, I'll go along. I just hope that whoever they get to do the stage management is as good as the Firefest crew, cos year after year they managed to keep the show running to time and just like clockwork and thats

I personally think that Europe are one of the best live bands I have seen in the past few years - old and new tracks alike, hugely powerful and giving it their all. They gave the mighty Foreigner a colossal run for their money in London last year... I like this track. It reminds me of the vibe of their very early stuff pre TFC, albeit with a production that is designed to sound very '70s hard

Cool sound! I like Country so those influences don't bother me one bit. I like this better than most of his solo stuff and it's nice to hear Tim Pierce's guitar playing again.

Rock Candy have already done Living In Oz and it's great! You can hear the bass better and the bottom end is generally 'lifted' and sounds more 'rounded' if that makes sense. There seems to be better separation of the instruments too so you can just hear the subtleties better.

Hopefully the album will have better production than the last one which, great songs and performances though it definitely has, sounds rather poor... I really like his voice too. Great talent.

This is my most eagerly awaited record of the year - and most eagerly awaited show of the year too!!! Those brief snippets of music behind the EPK interviews sound mighty powerful!

Disappointed to hear that Allessandro D V has written a lot of it... I'd have thought that Blades and aldrich between them could have written up a storm. All sounds a million bucks, but that lead off single is SOOOO very generic and (performances aside, cos all vocals, guitars and production kick ass) didn't wow me. Must check out the other samples though, as one song doth not an album make!!

From what I heard on that EPK, this is more suited to Issa's voice than anything she has done before. Her voice is very pure and I personally don't think that always sits very well with heavier music (unless in a more Symphonic rock style) Well worth further investigation, methinks....

I thought the Biffy chap was ill-suited to the style of the song, both vocally and guitar-wise, but he gave it all he'd got, which is crucial at these events... I was also struck by the fact that Slash's solo was quite different from the original. Not that it's a bad thing...my band cover that song and my attempts to play something akin to Randy's solo are best not mentioned... Yikes!!! ;-)
