I think age plays a part. Back in 1988 when I was 17 years old I had time to listen to albums and actually give them time to grow & breathe. There was also less around I think and it was harder to access stuff. Now as a 43 year old in 2014 I'm bombarded by music everywhere, it's easier to find and a lot more disposable. I also don't have as much time to listen to stuff & therefore tend

Been a Train fan since 'Drops of Jupiter'. Love the new album - agree it's not as good as 'California 37' but still v good. They do worry me at times that they might become less rock and more Maroon 5 but still love them. I got tickets for the arena tour because it means I can bring my 11 and 9 year olds along as they love them too - so it suits us !!

Unless he rediscovers some long forgotten magic I seriously doubt it. Or he pulls in Mutt Lange again.

You'll love this one then - grown up, mature country rock. If you'd had told me this is where they would be 5 albums ago I'd have said they would have sold out or got old but it really works and after all there are only so many times you can write 'Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy' or 'Coming to your City' Check out 'Don't Wake Me Up' or 'That Kind of Town'

Awesome band & Gravity really shows a step forward for them - mature, thoughtful country rock. I love the fun of the first album, that would be my starting point - it's like a rowdy party packaged into one cd but I really love the way they've grown and produced this new one.

I thought 'Riot Avenue' was a let down after the superb 'New Reiligion'. A step back in terms of sound and lyrics for me so got high hopes for next one. You never can tell from samples but I'm liking what I'm hearing.

So - what are you saying - their first two albums were good but the ten that followed, not so much???? Time warp?

Just shows the money is in the tour and not the production of any new music. I do have a little chuckle at the anti-iTunes sentiments.

Yep - without a doubt for me. Top Five Albums of All Time : 1. Bon Jovi : Slippery or Jersey 2. Def Leppard : Hysteria 3. Survivor : Vital Signs 4. Counting Crows : August & Everything After 5. Bruce Springsteen : Born to Run or Born in the USA depending on how I feel.

Hope it's as good as the first one although title is a bit dodgy.

As a 43 year old rock fan of 27 years I would say that Jimi is the first of my heroes to die. Steve Lee was a big loss, Ronnie James too but Jimi is the very first of my ultimate legends to pass away and it has hit me hard. Got a ticket for London next month but can't think about whether or not 'the show should go on' - just devastated that he's gone.

There's a list of rare stuff on Spotify that I listened to yesterday. Think it might be Jim Peterik co-writes that didn't make the album. 'the sound of home' is one of them that Pride of Lions would eventually do. Also on there is JJ's solo album from 1991 which I wasn't even aware of.

Agree - re : timings too. Any album beyond 12 songs requires more time than is generally available to listen to it and therefore it becomes fragmented. Palisades Park is the best song Adam has written in years, reminds me of Springsteen's 'Jungleland'. He seems to have his mojo back again, writing wise. I felt that 'Saturday Nights....' didnt catch him at his best - he seemed angry and not in

One of my favourite bands of all time and top 3 live act for me. Looking forward to new album - seems a bit more like classic Crows - didn't like 'Saturday Nights, Sunday Mornings' - felt it was an unfocused, low key and quite dull affair and the covers CD didn't do a lot for me, just like all covers albums, so this one feels like a return to form.

About as likely as a Damn Yankees re-union. Ted won't tour during hunting season and Richie won't tour whilst there is a moon in the sky he can prance about under burning incense.

I listened to a lot of those bands in the middle to late 90's and still listen to MB20 (although didn't like their last album), Counting Crows and Train (who have changed beyond recognition and have become well known in the UK) I can only think that they are / were regarded as college bands in the 90's when they first started and we don't have that genre over here. A lot of blokes listened to
