HEAT dropped to about £10 today - just need the Eclipse one to do the same and I'll pre-order, loved the samples on the front page.

Can't agree with the legacy thing : some of their best work ever on it for me : Midnight Hours Troubled Times All I Need Stardust would easily fit on a 12 track greatest hits for me.

Prices on Amazon UK for the Feb releases of Revolution Saints, Eclipse and HEAT are all around the £15 range, which is outrageous considering the standard £7.99 / £8.99 iTunes releases. I prefer CD's but at twice the price????

Isn't it interesting, our different opinions. I rate the album as second only to 'Tearing Down the Walls' as album of 2014. Every song a classic and refreshing to hear interesting lyrics in killer Rock songs - James Christian take note. Infact I rate it as good as my two favourite Scarem albums 'Higher' and 'Weight of the World'. I do think they are better in the studio than live having se

No thanks - would be like watching the residents of an old folks home refused hygiene for a month and then let loose on some random instruments :)

I like to check out stuff on Spotify and then about 80% of time will buy the CD from Amazon in the UK. Rarely use iTunes - prefer the product.

Yes I probably do although my faves of the new era are World Upside Down and Come to my Kingdom, the latter being a romp from beginning to end.

My least favourite HoL by miles. Main reason on this one was James' lyrics - awful, cliched and mysoginistic in most songs. To me he is well past the age and stage of 'baby baby baby fire my love gun' rubbish. Love the title track but the rest of the album sounds like it was produced by an online HoL song generator. They need a rethink for me about what they want to sound like going forw

Would love you to expand on that Thunder comment Bruce!!!!! I think the track 'Wonder Days' sounds like an utter classic Thunder time. Would love to know your thoughts on the rest then.

Hmmm - always confuses me when people get tickets for stuff that I can't get. I had a 6 min wait on ticketbastard and still got offered nothing. Then kept trying for 25 mins whilst teeing up level 5 seats on gigsandtours. Got block 552 in the upper level which looks like a decent view quite close to the stage (comparatively, obviously!!)

Had 3 different machines on 3 different websites set up 30 mins before the off and still went into a queue. Ticketmaster had sold everything by 9.38am, AXS by 9.35am. In the end I managed to get level 5 seats up in the gods from gigsandtours.com but not happy - wanted to be on the pitch not up in the heavens with the infirm and kids!!! I guess the ticket bots won on this one judging by the

What can you say that we all don't already know about this band? Energy, enthusiasm and talent all combined into one amazing package. And as far as Erik goes - I honestly don't know how he gets the energy to do what he does. Been going to concerts since 1987 and I've never seen a frontman like him. As a long time fan of the band right from the early 'Kenny' days I have a few little niggles

Feb looking good with Eclipse & Thunder. Love HEAT but not a great fan of live albums and an but sad that they aren't playing many off the first two albums anymore. New Europe will be loathed on here as it will sound even more Zeppellin that Bag of Bones and we will have that old chestnut of a conversation about their last great album bring Prisoners in Paradise. New Dare album? Beli

House of Lords - Precious Metal. Apart from the title track a real stinker from a band that have never let me down before. James needs to really look at the lyrics he writes because for a man of his age & years his lyrics are starting to sound really inappropriate now & mysoginistic in places. Ditch the clichéd baby, baby, baby feel my love gun stuff & write some proper lyrics!!!

Mad - standing at the back of 60,000 people watching a video screen of a ginger hobbit singing. Not my idea of a great night out.

Metallica Aerosmith Magnum Journey Thunder Are all band names I don't dislike although as I'm typing I've just realised they are all one word names so I must like that sort of thing!! I do think Harem Scarem was a pretty daft name :) but love the music. Not mainstream enough maybe but I get the impression that reflects the guys just how they like it!!

Gotthard : I contend they would have been much bigger than they were commercially if they didn't have such an odd name. Yes I know it has a meaning but to anyone else in the world who doesn't live near the tunnel / mountain it reads Got Hard & is lame.

Sounds good to me - another fine Fontiers project although I doubt they'll ever play live , which always disappoints me. I'll buy it though I think.

I like the length of the reviews - any longer and I wouldn't take it in. I essentially want to know his score - his thoughts on the overall quality - a comparison to any previous work and stand out tracks to watch out for. Any more than that ie: an in depth analysis of each track is not necessary to me cos I won't have heard the album so it will be meaningless to me. I do like to see the re

Long long long gone Bruce. They are chasing the biker crowd now not the Firefest crowd. Puts on 'More Than Meets the Eye' and wonders where it all went wrong.

Cheers Bruce, Having contributed to issue 66 I would not criticise the good work that you guys do. What I meant was that after visiting melodicrock for what must be nigh on 15 years now I know that if Andrew generally likes something so will I whereas I don't have that relationship with many of the Fireworks reviewers so I find it harder to get a feel for an album that way. However Firework
