Huge proportion of what I hear on this site is rock by numbers to one degree or another. Doesn't necessarily make it bad. Personally, I really like Lionville. They are one of the few current/new AOR acts whose music I actually really enjoy. I'll definitely be buying the album...

Very accomplished player indeed, but at his best when playing Brooke's solos in my opinion. Too much shred and not enough melody and feel in the other songs, for me. But I do fully agree that he's perfect for the band as it is now - great live energy and he so looks the part. It was a really great show - I personally enjoyed the songs off Strength in Numbers as much as those from the debut, actua

They were excellent!! However, the new songs aren't quite resonating with me for some reason. I know I'm in a very small minority there and I can't quite work out why... Oh well... The band were in awesome form and Danny was in fine fettle - really strong vocals all night. Romeo's Daughter were superb as well!!

I really like that, actually. And I've seen worse videos than that recently too!!

The two tracks I have heard from the upcoming cd are better than the first two albums put together in my opinion - I bought both the other cds in a sale at HMV. A few songs I enjoyed...most I didn't... Looking forward to hearing more from the new one now...

Brad Paisley is technically better than Keith Urban, but I prefer Keith's playing - it's more emotive. Or at least it was before he went dance-pop on his unbelievable dodgy latest album!!!

Just seen on Facebook via AOR Underground that vocalist David Saylor has passed away today! Great shame - great vocalist! I have some of his solo stuff and he has a new project 'Santa Ana Winds' that sounded very nice in a 'pure 80s AOR nostalgia way...' He can't have been very old either...in his 50s, I'd imagine... RIP...

I have a couple of live dvds from shows back in the late 80s/early 90s. Amazing vocalist and always had a killer band behind him too...

Bought the first couple of albums, played them a handful of times...sold them on. Nothing they have ever done has risen above the ordinary to my ears. Sorry...

Cool... I was just about to ask how REO were, as I'm a big fan but couldn't justify the ticket price given that I can't stand Status Quo... Was hoping REO would be doing a date on their own somewhere, as I'd have gone to that. Missed them last time they played here as I was ill... Have never seen them live.

WSC is spoiled by the production and arrangements. There are some great songs on it but they struggle to show how good they are due to the overly synthesised musical backing - Oceans, Rebel Son, Is This Love, Backstreet Love Affair... All good tracks to my ears. It's also spoiled by not having Burning Heart on it (thank goodness for the Rock Candy remaster, which does!). Anyway, for me Vital

I like that - Had no idea Peterborough had anything like this hiding away and I've lived here nearly 30 years!!!!!! LOL!! The track 'Call Me' is cool too in that '80's soundtrack' kinda way...

How the mighty have fallen!! Such a shame when the demons get so bad that this kinda thing happens... I used to love Ritchie's playing back in the day... And as for Orianthi, she's always gonna struggle. The 'pop-rock' thing never really took off (although I really enjoyed that album a few years back) and she's pretty much gonna be looked upon as the perennial side woman now, I suspect. For a

Just a quick 'thank you' to the kind folks posting links to videos from Rockingham. I wasn't able to go so it's good to see a bit of what I missed... And, those videos have dragged me kicking and screaming from all my country music listening and back to albums by Lee Aaron, Fortune (and Harlan Cage) and Crown of Thorns!! A jolly fine nostalgia trip it's been too!!! :-)

Yeah, I got rid of the Emotional Rain album - it never really grabbed me beyond a couple of tracks, but that's probably just me. It's worth checking out for anyone interested in Lee Aaron's development as an artist through the 90s and beyond...

It is what it is... 80s - 90s melodic hard rock. Very 'dated' sounding as in it 'sounds like what it is'. However, there are some monster tracks amongst it all! I have 'Lee Aaron' (1987) and 'Bodyrock' (1989) on CD & my i-pod. They are colossal albums. 'Lee Aaron' is very AOR - more keyboards than a lot of her stuff. It's very good AOR though. Bodyrock feels more guitar-based to me but is ver

I'd agree with Figge... If you aren't a country fan but are interested in hearing Carrie, then the latest 2 cds he lists above are the ones to go for.

Makes you wonder if Dave left because of some trouble with Rivers? Anyway, new material will be the key thing to judge them by. If they can match Address the Nation for quality, I'll be both surprised and very happy, as I thought Tearing Down the Walls was weak in comparison...

Latest cd is very 'pop rock'... More so than her earlier ones.

Some staggeringly honest and self-deprecating lyrics in those songs. I have heard enough in those to make me actually consider investigating the album when it comes out. I'm not saying every song hit the spot, but there was enough in there to make me feel like checking it out further...

REO Speedwagon - Had tickets for the last UK tour but was ill and couldn't go!! Don't really wanna waste money seeing half of Status Quo staggering through a show (not a Quo fan...) so unless they do a solo show I won't see 'em this time either! The live at Soundstage dvd is one of my very favourites. Night Ranger - always been away or working or something when they've played over in the UK re

Hmmm.... Very 'Dokken' as has been said already. Cool guitar sound and nice playing. Great vocals too as always from Mr Brock. However, the song didn't totally grab me...my attention wandered a bit. Needs a few more listens...
