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...

I'll go against the grain...I quite like it. I like the fact that it sounds a bit different. Don't understand the 'no guitars' comment...there's loads of guitar in there, but just not balls out shred 80s glam pop-metal guitars. In fact, I think the production and arrangement is actually very good. Am enjoying both these new songs more than pretty much anything on the (IMHO) woeful 'Bounce' or 'Ci

Rocket Science is my favourite Rick Springfield album since Rock of Life. I enjoyed 'Songs' and 'Venus' too, but this tops those for me. Karma and SDAA don't float my boat in quite the same way, although they remain excellent lyrically and both contain songs I really enjoy. However, Living in Oz remains my favourite. It's actually my favourite album of all time. I absolutely love every single

Sounds great, but then the album is chock full of irresistible AOR songs, so add a 2016 production and the fact that they can totally still cut it and what's not to like?

On balance I prefer Stan's version too, but the fact remains that it's a great song no matter who's doing it...

Just listened to the samples on iTunes. Sounds good. I don't know who sings the harmonies but they fit so well with Sue's lead vocal. I like the production too... Might pick this up...

Yeah, Brigade is a killer record for sure. I saw them on that tour...they were very, very good!!! I did some digging around ref different mixes for 'Heart (1985)' and apparently, depending on which serial number your version is depends on the mix you get for 'Never' or 'Nothing at All'...

Yeah, 'Heart' is a complete pop-rock record, which is what I liked about it I guess. Always liked very commercial pop-rock. Wasn't quite so keen on Bad Animals, though...

Heart for me... I do prefer 80s Heart to the 70s stuff, although I get why the band and many fans feel their 80s period was awful. Although you may be surprised to know that my first Heart album purchase was the cassette version of 'Passionworks', an album many folk seem to really dislike. Personally, I really enjoy it. I love the 1985 'comeback' S/T Heart album, although I'm sure that my cd vers

The simple fact of the matter is that Alessandro is a good producer - he gets a huge sound which sounds bigger than the budget actually is. He knows how to arrange a classic AOR sound on record. He is also a fine singer and keys player. No question at all about that. If you really think he's bad, go back and listen to the crap that Fabrizio Grossi put out for Frontiers a few years back - cardb

To me, most everything after HAND is utter rubbish, so to return to that HAND style for the album would suit me down to the ground!! HAND, These Days and Keep the Faith are pretty much the only BJ I listen to these days... If the new cd has a vibe reminiscent of those, I'll be a happy man. However, I do get why people don't like the track or find it 'so-so'. Dunno why, but something in the mel

I really like it. To me it's anything but dull. The Springsteenish vibe and the associated guitar sound totally fits the song. I think it's easily the best song they've done since HAND. Jon sings within his limitations, which for me is another reason to like it - can you imagine him screeching over a more 'hard rock' sound?? He struggled doing that years ago. He actually sounds like he's enjoying
