I was lucky enough to see Seven support Richard Marx back in the day (and owned vinyl copies of the singles). I was always so disappointed that we never heard an album by them then, so it's good to hear new stuff that sounds so good. Definite Foreigner vibe in that chorus and the vocals have a touch of Kelly Hansen's tone and phrasing, which is no bad thing!! Well done chaps...great job! Looking

Well, I have a sense of humour and I'm not a prude, but that is just ridiculous. Music and melody jolly good in that 80s hair metal kind of way, but lyrically, that's not the sort of thing I can listen to. I don't even find it funny, although the video adds to the humour somewhat and if it had been released when I was a teenager, I guess I'd have laughed myself stoopid.... Oh well...I guess th

I think that song on the vid sounds a bit like Axe circa the 20 yrs from home releases, both vocally and instrumentally. And that is a very good thing!

I can't be arsed with all this sh*t really. All I care about is the music and TD has made some great stuff over the years. As a guitarist, he inspires me to try to play better and watching him live is always a treat. As for disparaging the melodic rock genre, well, he ain't alone in those views and maybe if we'd all played on 40,000 AOR cds, we'd be feeling a little jaded with it too. :-) I'

In my experience, customer service from RC is excellent. I had an issue with my recent order, emailed them and they sorted it out immediately with friendly communication. Can't fault 'em really. Dokken remaster of Under Lock and key is fabulous, BTW... Yesterrock have also always given great service when I have purchased from them...

The only Rock Candy cd I bought that was crap was the Praying Mantis one. The Rick Springfield and Survivor reissues are superb. I dunno about the Dokken and Tommy Shaw albums as, although I have ordered them 3 weeks ago, they have not arrived and my polite email asking about them has thus far been ignored (I sent it on Sunday, so only 2 working days...) This little issue is unusual as they are n

If the rest of the album is as good as the single it'll be a must-buy for me!!

Cool track...very 'Blackhawk' in sound (although I guess Blackhawk probably got their sound from these guys...)

Well, he must be in his mid 60s by now and obviously has weight and/or health problems, so how good is he gonna look? I agree that a haircut would help tho', bless 'im!! :-) He can clearly still cut it on the guitar though. I just think it's great that, after all these years, he's prepared to stand on the same stage as the rest of the band, given the bad blood there's been over the years.

Yeah, it seems as though they were gonna reunite anyway and the 'other' Vixen would have no original members so would be going nowhere...Seems a sensible decision all round, really and by far the best way to honour Jan's memory and keep the music alive and out there.

Into The Street is VERY 'light' as it it hasn't got tons of massive guitars. I personally love the album (and the even more 'pop' sounding debut as well), but those who love the current BIG guitar melodic rock sound of Eclipse, etc, may find Boulevard a little on the 'light' side... Have had Into The Street and From the Fire's CD in my car ever since Sunday. Really enjoying hearing them again.

I saw them supporting Richard Marx on his Repeat Offender tour in ...oh...1989? Bloody brilliant band in the live arena on that occasion - surprised a LOT of people - they covered a Pat Benatar song as I recall....I think it was Love is a Battlefield...and really did it well...maybe somebody else remembers that and can confirm?? Anyway this song is absolutely great! Love it!

Tim Pierce is one of the best guitarists out there IMHO. He has that incredible talent for knowing exactly what to play to make a song work, which is why he's been so in demand as a session player. Check out some of the vids of him layering guitars in his studio (from his website/youTube) to see how incredibly clever he is as an arranger of guitar parts. You may not her a lot of shredding these

The 'new' guitarist is called Gareth Moulton and he's f***ing brilliant!! I saw them at a festival in Cambridgeshire this summer and although they only did 3 songs, they were superb and the guitar playing was sublime!!!

Well, I quite like some of Katy Perry's stuff, so... And Mutt and TD won't put their name to any old bollocks, so... I gave it a listen, what little there was to listen to... Based on that teeny weeny preview I reckon I'd listen to this kind of sound any day over what Daughtry has done on his new album, which really REALLY disappointed me after loving his other stuff! So if I wanted mo

Fast company is on Racing After Midnight and that was never a bonus track as I recall. But Lethal Weapon is not. I don't have a problem with that personally as I never liked it and never felt it fitted the album! But I may be in a minority view on that one :-) The issue I do have with the remasters is that they seem a bit 'quiet' compared to some others RC have done. They do sound good, but I

As I did a review for day 1, I thought I'd do the same for day 3 Went with a mate on Sunday. It was his first ever Firefest and he only really went for JSRG and Legends. Thus, we arrived in Nottingham at about 12.30 and, being starving hungry, headed for food. In retrospect, this was an almighty error, as will be seen below... Eclipse: Due to dinner, we missed all bar Eclipse's last song.On

Yeah, the lead guitars were a bit quiet, apart from The Magnificent and Eden's Curse. I was right in front of Erik for W.E.T's set so his guitar was very loud! But the other fella, his was not very clear, neither was the guitar very clear during WOA's set. Still a great show though... :-)

For what it's worth, my thoughts on day 1: The place was rammed to the rafters! I have never seen so many people at Rock City!! Blimey! Great to see so many people having a great time. So, to the bands: The Magnificent were, well...quite magnificent, actually! I arrived midway through their set and wished I'd seen it all, as, despite it being their first ever show, they were extremely tight
