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...

Very good points and well made! Nobody wants to see him fail, but he's got mighty big shoes to fill in all departments!!

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

Check out ex-Whiteheart and current Union of Sinners & saints drummer Jon Knox' Youtube page - some superb live Whiteheart videos from back in the day and more recently. The Powerhouse and Tales of Wonder tour vids feature guitarist Brian Wooten who is a monster player. Some fabulous songs featured... https://www.youtube.com/user/jonknox/videos

Despite featuring Dann Huff on guitar, the early Whiteheart albums aren't all that great to my ears - bit too Westcoast and too 'polite'. However, that list of their most successful albums by Totobob represents some of the finest Christian AOR ever, in my humble opinion. What I liked about Whiteheart was that they didn't always just use the same old chord structures or same old production tec

Well, the production sounds pretty good for a lite-AOR kinda thing. I like the overall feel. I probably need to sample the tracks on I-Tunes once it's released, as I did really like the track released to rock radio a few weeks back and some of these others have potential, although I suspect the whole album might be a bit too much of one thing. The ITunes samples will probably be a bit longer so o

Funnily enough, I had the Bad English cd on in the car today...first time I'd played it in a long while! Anyway, Bad English win by a whisker for me. Both albums have many great tracks and both have a couple of fillers. For me, the great songs on Bad English are slightly better and I prefer the production on it too. Curci is an amazing singer but Waite is too, just in a different way. Bo

The big issue with the Giant show was that all the lead guitar (except the beginning lead intro to I'm A Believer) was overdubbed afterwards... Something to do with the fact that his actual sound on the night was absolutely shite (I recall a review of the show stating this in one of the rock mags at the time) So, on the TV, Dann's hands were moving, but what was playing wasn't always the same...

Both bands had one really cool track, as I remember. I saw KOTG support Winger, I think, in Peterborough and Cold Sweat headlined the same venue a few months later. I wasn't overly impressed with either band's performance to be honest...

I genuinely don't know what folk really expect... Dare are never gonna do another Blood From Stone... It's always gonna be on the softer side of the rock spectrum and have some celtic influence. If one doesn't like that kinda thing, probably best to avoid the band's music...

Try the latest Kip Moore cd... Also try Eli Young Band and Parmalee. Lots of rock influences there. A Thousand Horses have their moments too...the cd is a bit samey but a cool rock vibe on it. Check out their rather excellent single 'Smoke'...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gDWepmUXk3w
