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...

Sigh...I live on the bloody doorstep, but the wife is away at a friend's hen party all weekend so I have a 5yr old to look after... B***er, blast and damnation...!!!!

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

Glad you like the Eli Young album. I also have their other two and actually prefer the debut over the second, but all good listens if you like that kind of country sound.

I know a lot of people dismiss the current REO line up because Gary isn't there, but having seen the live DVD of the current line up of the band at Soundstage all I can say is, if they are 'sh*t' with that line up, they must have been the best band in the world before, as that Soundstage performance is stellar (IMHO, of course)and one of my favourite concert DVDs. Dave is a brilliant player and d

Checked the Williams Riley cd on ITunes. Sounds very good indeed... May have to download it. The Dark Horse album has been with me in the car all day. Really enjoying it!

My wife commented that some of it sounded like a countrified Bon Jovi and I can see her point. We listened to it last night and I would say that it's a really solid and very enjoyable Contemporary Country album with a rock edge, as is a lot of Nashville stuff at the moment. Not really better nor worse than the Nashville contemporaries making similar stuff, although at least it is better lyric

Just downloaded it from Amazon...the only thing stopping me playing it is the Rock Candy remasters of Rick Springfield's Working Class Dog & Rock of Life which arrived today!!!! BTW if you like this rocky country kinda thing, check out the new Eli Young Band album '1000 Towns' - very, very good indeed...

Too much compression in the final mix, which means that the production isn't allowed to breathe. A pity really, as it isn't massively over-layered like some modern AOR albums are. The main issue is that it has too many songs that try too hard to be Journey and don't quite make the grade (although I like it better than Journey's Eclipse and Generations albums, if I'm honest). When they try NOT t

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
