The mastering process enables the eq to be refreshed so it brings out the bass more. thats definitely the case on this and on other RC remasters. I have bought many of them and they very rarely miss the mark. Vital Signs remaster has a more full sound that does give more bottom end. if one is a fan of the band, one should buy it immediately...

Still waiting to hear how to get my refund for the London show...

Yeah, its a good track. Very much business as usual for the band, but I must admit that the whole thing sounds really good! Great production, great performances... Looking forward to the album, but hoping it sticks with me for longer than the last one did. I got bored of a lot of that very quickly, unlike the debut...

One of the very best! For me, it shares top spot with Rick Springfield's Living in Oz, just ahead of Journey's Escape. When Seconds Count has grown on me considerably since the Rock Candy remaster came out and included Burning Heart - it made the album complete and I now listen to it almost as often as Vital Signs. Premonition is my favourite of the Bickler era, followed by Caught in the G

Well, I am an absolutely huge fan of Survivor, both Bickler and Jamison eras and I have a ticket for the London show. If they decided to do it in tribute, I'd probably still go along, but long term surely it's now time to call it a day. The original members all must be into their mid 60s by now and in some ways this would just be the time to call it and allow the memory of the band to remain posi

Go West are still going strong with some excellent new music (albeit less electronic and programmed than their classic debut.) My wife is a huge fan...and I really like them too. We regularly go and see them live and have met them on occasion. The singer, Peter Cox is a lovely bloke who still has a great voice. The current live band is also ridiculously talented. The guitarist in particular is br

Rick Springfield, esp Livin in Oz and Rock of Life, and Survivor are my defaults, although I also have a host of AOR soundtrack compilations on I Tunes which also get heavy rotation. Am currently enjoying the Rock Candy remaster of Scandal ft Patty Smyth 'The Warrior'. Awesome album, and it comes with the original EP tracks as a bonus! 30 years old and it seems like I first heard it only yeste

No doubting the talent on offer but the critical question is this: Will the songs be any good?

Stoplight is a bloody brilliant song. Amazing hook line! I sampled all tracks on ITunes and ended up downloading 5. I think the rap parts in Living In Danger would be cool if they were delivered with some feeling. It sounds a bit 'half-hearted' to me. Rap is supposed to be 'bad-ass' and mean something. On here, it just sounds...mehhhh. Shame. I'm not intentionally negative, but the problem I

I'm actually looking forward to it! The version of the ballad (I think it's Home Sweet Home?) I caught on one of the Country websites is really good, I think. But then, with new music, I listen to more country than rock these days...

Very, very enjoyable indeed!!! Some great hooks and a few interesting 'left turns' within the song structure. This album will be a 'must buy' for me... Possibly even more so than the new Work of Art album...

Exactly! It's absolutely filthy and needs a refurb. I have had some great times there, but Firefest is always marred by the squalour. I actually try to time toilet breaks in with trips out for food because it is so appalling! Luckily, the atmosphere and bands always more than make up for it :-)

Well, it's about the same journey length either way for me, but I have a soft spot for Shepherd's Bush, so opted for that...and one weekend at the hell-hole that is Rock City is enough for me each year. Firefest is always a marvellous show, but the venue...oh dear!!!! :-)

Got my ticket for Shepherd's Bush! 3rd Row... Can't wait! Survivor are definitely my favourite AOR/MR act alongside Rick Springfield... Saw him for the first time ever at Shepherd's Bush a year ago and now Survivor as well! And only a week and a half before Firefest too... Marvellous!!!

I agree. I thought that Frankie Sullivan refused to play outside of the,cUS these days. Don't get me wrong, I'd love to see them, but if only the agent is advertising, I'd be a bit wary...

No, that song does not appear on the CD. Maybe it's a bonus track or maybe it's been shelved. Do Escape Music even do Japanese bonus tracks?

Just listened to the new Inside Love again and the old one AND David Saylor's version...it's all good...just such a great song! I think the big keys from the original are what I miss most on the new version - they are lower in the mix and that chugging guitar is just so high in the mix on the verse it kinda changes the feel. Can't take away from what a superb song it is though. A couple of ot

This arrived this morning and went straight into the car as I knew I'd get through it at least once in my various journeys to and from work and getting to the various schools I needed to visit today. First impressions: Fabulous old-school AOR with big production and kicking guitars and drum sound. Some of the songs I recognise from old singles and from old demos I have picked up online over th

That is a classic comment and Rik would have loved it, I'm sure! My favourite of all his work with Ade Edmondson was Bottom, which plumbed new depths (sorry!) and had me howling with laughter throughout, although one has to go some to top the amazing University Challenge episode of The Young Ones...brilliant, brilliant anarchic comedy... RIP Mr Mayall.

These arrived just before I went on holiday last week so I have actually had time to listen to them properly. First, the new Alien album: What a superb old-school release! Really good songs, superb production and great performances all round. There's a huge Journey influence on many of these songs, which, on first listen, worried me, as that was the very thing that turned me off much of the

Which, to be fair applies to bands such as Bon Jovi who use taped backing, even though they can sing - Richie and Dave have good backing vocal voices - so it is enhancement. As it would be with Foreigner if they actually do use them. I think it's just a fact of life that technology is here to stay and bands will use it. To what extent it really enhances or takes away from the performance is do
