I was surprised at how little VEGA seemed to promote the second album - spoke to the guys at an FM pre-show and they were perplexed at the muted response they had had from the melodic community for 'What the Hell'. Personally I think if they want to break out of our little genre bubble they almost need to set aside a year to be out on the road. Own shows, festivals and trying to get on aren

I believe, CCM, that your post is what comedians refer to as a 'call back'?

I'm with Andrew - 80's Kiss produced the best songs, well, the best Paul songs. Can't think of a single Gene song from the 80's that was any good. When they took the make up off they had to work harder as a band and project real personalities. Saw them a couple of times on the Crazy Nights and Hot in the Shade tours and they were good. As soon as the make up went on again they got lazy agai

Reached the point with 4 albums now where they have too many good songs to please all the fans so I looked at the setlist and thought 'sounds good ' but then looked again and listed all the classics from the first two CD's that they aren't playing any more!!!!

Was the HEAT appearance 'exclusive' or was that not part of the contract. Just interested as to why there is no Midlands date on the UK tour.

I reckon they probably agreed with Firefest to do nothing in the Midlands so that it doesn't clash with October.

Wouldn't Caught in the Act count? Causing 'Our' Caught in the Act to change their name to Guild of Ages. (Sorry to have mentioned the name of a melodicrock band on this forum Can Man)

Yes, Boybands and grunge rule. Melodic rock is cheesy, lame and dead.

Ha ha ha - that made me chuckle. Nice start to the day Andrew, thanks. Awaits petulance from the non melodic rock fans who post here.

Man, chill out - no- one is stamping their feet or throwing toys out of a pram. I just get the feeling both you (Niv) and Can Man are just deliberately taking the piss. Both your posts are incendiary, laced with sarcasm & aggression towards us and this board. I just don't know why you bother. For the record I haven't listened to much melodic rock this year as I'm much more interested

12. WTF!!!
I am struggling with this sentence on a forum for fans of melodic rock : "I don't think Justin Bieber or One Direction's songs are as bad as some of the stuff Erik Martenson comes out with" You are joking right? Slow day at work? Looking to provoke a reaction on here or what? Gobsmacked. Literally. Need to lie down in a dark room and contemplate the whole meaning of things.

This one is for you from me. It fits these criteria which you seem to be interested in : 1. Not melodic rock 2. Catchy but meaningful 3. Trying to widen people's perspectives. Dierk's new album 'Riser' is my favourite album of the year. Just seen him play the C2C festival at the O2 recently and he rocked the hell out of the crowd just like any of the rockers we love on this board.

Because it adds gravitas to an opinion. I just haven't heard a song on the radio or seen a clip somewhere I had the misfortune to be subjected to a live show of his and therefore have some sort of understanding about what he is like as an artist. Seeing an artist live is the defining moment in the relationship between consumer and producer. Anyone can have an opinion based on listening to a cd

Seriously don't take this the wrong way after our disagreement over Ed Sheeran but this is just One Direction / Vamps style pop music. I've seen Train live in the UK three times now and Maroon 5 once (before they too became pop music) and this has nothing to do with them. Maybe it's because I'm 42 and have been listening to rock music for 27 years now but Pat Monahan would laugh himself sil

I wasn't policing the board just replying to your post 'Does anyone like Ed Sheeran?' and I said 'no, he's a whinging, introspective, bag of crap that doesn't really belong in a board about melodic rock' - that's not policing the board, just my opinion. Ed ought to lock himself away for 48 hours with the first 4 Counting Crows albums if he really wants to learn how to write meaningful songs.

17. Sigh.
Sorry Captain Can Man - I didn't realise you had won a debate with me at sometime in the past. I'll trawl back through all my posts, find where it is and then give you the affirmation and esteem you clearly are searching for. Prat. I repeat again - this is a forum for melodicrock rock and Ed Is about as far away from this genre as you can get. If I wanted a forum for angst ridden 20 some

This is a forum for melodic rock. Ed Sheeran can get bent. And this is coming from someone who has seen him live. Don't ask.

I was surprised that Kieran and co went for Autograph at Firefest given it's not the original singer and only 2 original members - doesn't usually fit their criteria.

Overland is pure class from beginning to end and it also made me check out his other releases, one of which sounded just as good and one of which was very different and not so good. Album of the year do far for me. House of Lords is also a class album but let down by some of the lyrics, which are just ludicrous. Something like 'Action' is downright mysoginistic and I'm surprised Robin even

One of my favourite bands back in the day, first three albums pure rock classics. Struggle to listen to the newer stuff, don't know why though.

Come to My Kingdom was outstanding. Cartesian Dreams had some good songs on but some cheesy lyrics do interested to see where Precious Metal sits amongst HoL recent output. James' solo didn't work for me at all which I was surprised at, not a patch on Meet the Man.

What I mean is the structure of the chorus and it's style reminds me of the 'I would walk 500 miles....' Stomp along refrain. Obviously the guitars and drums aren't folky I just meant the feel. It's a strange choice for lead off song considering the last lead off song was 'Livin on the Run'. Maybe it'll grow on me. Like the sound of the Three Lions stuff though.

Prefer it to Wrecking Ball on initial listens. WB had a big heart and lots to say but was too folky and Gaelic for me. High Hopes rocks!! Thanks to great guitars by Tom Morello. Very impressed.
