Yeah...I liked the 'pop' side of the record. That's what stood out for me. I hated 'Nuthouse'...

Well, it's a great way to build a fan base from roots up. If you sit for hours signing photos, etc after a major arena show then go above and beyond meeting fans and playing acoustic sets in the streets after your main shows finish, meeting and greeting the fans, you'll soon develop a powerful fan base. I have a lot of respect for the amount of time he gives and the way he works hard like that -

I love the 'Don't Just Stand There' album. Played it to death when I first bought it on vinyl... The rest of their stuff doesn't do a lot for me though.

Gutted that I missed this tour! Saw him at C2C last year and he blew me away - so much more 'rock' live. Seems to really care about his fans too, which is nice to see.

I always thought Screw It had some utterly killer tracks (Beat the Bullet, Crazy Nites, I Still Think About You, Don't Blame It On Love, for example), but a bunch of absolute crap too like...what was it called...Horny S.O.B.?? Get Your Shit Together?? Yeah, You Want It?? Dear me... Perhaps I missed the humour or something, but they don't float my boat at all. I love the debut, FTHW, Gildersle

Shame...I saw him a few years back and he was really good - dodgy song choices aside. I thought he looked rough on that video...

Weakest on the album it may be but I still really like it. I like the cheese factor - it brings a smile to my face. Overall, the most enjoyable AOR/melodic rock album I have heard in ages (although, to be fair, I haven't bought many lately) because it doesn't sound like a 'project' (even though technically it is) and doesn't sound like so many other 'projects' currently do with the same produ

Great song! The Time Love and Tenderness album has a few cracking songs on it, but they are done no favours by a mix that buries the guitar. It's definitely there (courtesy of Michael Landau on most tracks, if memory serves) but is just 'buried' in the keyboard layers. 'Time, Love & Tenderness', 'Forever Isn't Long Enough' and 'Steel Bars' in particular... I realise that most people will p

Thanks for that info Andrew. I'd not heard anything about this before. Sounds like a fun project. I'll definitely keep an ear out for more.

This has a rather similar feel to Rick Springfield's 'Working Class Dog' era material, I reckon. I'd like to hear some more...

You know what, prior to this, I haven't bought a rock album in months - fed up of so much of the current scene sounding so similar and just not exciting me at all. I've been listening exclusively to Country stuff. However, THIS album has brought rock back to my house!!! I absolutely love it!!! I always loved D2 with Paul Laine (well...I love 'em with Ted Poley too, but the Laine fronted vers

Well, I went to see Porcupine Tree in Norwich once. I'm not a fan, but they were actually quite brilliant, but the support band was called Rothko and they made shit sound good!!! 3 bass players simultaneously playing discordant riffs that went from quiet to booming formless noise with no vocals. Every 'song' did the same. Biggest load of shite I have ever seen, despite the fact that all 3 guys we

I thought that Fuse had a couple of great tracks and a load of filler. This new track is clearly continuing his experiments with crossover styles. It's got a cool chorus and his vocal sounds great, but what's with the dance keyboards??? I love Keith's pre-Fuse output and I love a lot of modern Country. I listen to it far more than rock these days, but this ain't really what I want out of the genr

Well, call me 'lame' if you wanna, but I think 'Higher' is a great tune!!! Don't care how 'generic' it is, that chorus got me grinning like an idiot while ironing my work shirt at 6:30am and that is no mean feat, I can assure you!!!! :-)

Which is exactly why we covered it :-) - superb song and always went down very well! I was also in a band that covered Hooks in You from the Hogarth era...that was fun to play too.

Not a band I really like much, although I really like the more 'pop' tracks on Holidays in Eden, actually. To be fair, I never really 'got' the Fish era either, despite playing Kayleigh in one of the covers bands I've been in. I do recall a load of fuss about the track Grendel back in the day... I saw them at Nottingham circa HiE and really enjoyed the show, but haven't cared for much of anything

From the tracks I heard (I haven't bothered buying the whole album) it sounded a million dollars but hadn't got the killer hook. Perhaps there's better to come. Talented bunch though for sure, just not for me...

Sounded very 'enhanced' to me - the sheer number of guitars parts alone told you that!!! Not taking anything away from the song though - brilliant piece of melodic hard rock!!! Great performance too, but I'm not surprised it didn't win...

I liked the first song I heard from Steven Tyler (Love is Your name), but not the second (Red, White & You). 747 is a great album from Lady A. Interestingly, the songs structures and production on there are very 'pop' too - less pedal steel and fiddle on there than on Rick's album!! LOL!!!

Sorry, but I cannot agree with Danrox there. There is not one single solitary country song on this album! There are loads of pop-rock songs on it with country instrumentation on them. None of these would get a look in on Country radio. My daily listening these days is Little Big Town, Lady Antebellum, Eric Church, Rascal Flatts, The Band Perry, etc and those are country acts. I also play in a Cou

In actual fact none of this album is really Country. it has some Country instrumentation, but does not have Country song structures. I listen to more country than rock these days and I play in a Country covers band, having spent nearly 30 years in rock covers bands, so do have some idea of what I'm going on about here. This album is basically pop-rock in the song structures. If you turned up the
