Fantastic album with brilliant production, a little top-heavy with ballads but the Scorpions sure know how to write a great ballad. The Deluxe Edition is well worth it. Not sure about the naysayers as who has ever bought a Scorpions album based purely on its lyrical content?

Basically everything that JSS puts his mind to oozes class and ‘Inside The Vertigo’ is no exception. Yes, it’s heavy but there’s still tonnes of melody on the album. If you like SOTO then I would recommend that you check out the latest releases from Fahran, Fuyron and Night By Night. Personally, I still prefer Jeff’s more melodic albums:- 1. W.E.T. – W.E.T. 2. Talisman – ‘7

Also check out 1984's 'In Rock We Trust', a little more commercial than their earlier albums. Totally agree with the previous comments with 'Black Tiger', 'Earthshaker' and 'Ten' being my particular favourites.

As much as I would like to purchase every release on CD the latter is just not financially possible or viable in terms storage space . I listen to approximately 100 new albums per year and like to have my favourite 20-25 on CD. My usual places of purchase are Amazon, HDWOW and E-Bay; I ideally like to pay less than £10 per album, however, the latter is becoming increasingly more difficult for ne

Despite being released in December this was my second favourite album of the year (Work of Art ‘Framework’ being number one). Got into the album straight away and is a great amalgamation of all their previous albums. I have been fortunate enough to see Harem Scarem three times at Firefest and even though I enjoyed all three performances I can understand the criticism of them live on the earli

Agreed Woody some great shows this year but if I had to choose then it would have to be the following:- 1. Foreigner / Europe / FM – Sheffield City Hall 2. Tyketto / Bonfire / Summers – The Corporation, Sheffield 3. Firefest Day 3: Danger Danger / Autograph / Coney Hatch / Brother Firetribe / Touch / C.I.T.A./Guild of Ages / Axxis 4. Firefest Day 2: FireHouse / Black N’ Blue / Pretty

Fantastic album and I am pleased that a few other fans rate 'Bravado' so highly. Also love the opening track 'Dreamline'. Without wanting to sound rude, are you a big chap Walk In The Shadows?

Great review Woody. I saw them at Holmfirth at the last night of the tour and agree that this was the best that they have been. Already looking forward to seeing them again next year.

Thanks Eric, the band were fantastic and Graham sounded as good as he did thirty-five years ago. Sorry, you could not make it as I would have love to have heard 'Eyes Of The World' which was brilliant at Firefest last year.

I saw the brilliant Graham Bonnet on Tuesday evening at the O2 Academy in Sheffield. He was in fine voice and just as important, sober. Does anyone know the names of his touring band members?

I still prefer the heavy albums 'All The Right Reasons' and 'Dark Horse' but kudos to the band for trying something different. Certainly not a bad album.

If you are going I would advise getting there early as he plays all the 'Reckless' material early doors. Looking forward to seeing him in Sheffield on Tuesday night.

Fantastic band. Love all eras but especially the mid-seventies classics 'The Dark Side Of The Moon' and my personal favourite 'Wish You Were Here'. There are not may bands that have been around for the length of time as Pink Floyd where fans get excited about the prospect of new music.

Thanks guys for all the feedback. I have ordered the debut album plus one the greatest hits album and downloaded the last studio album 'Dr. Faith' (thanks Eric). Woodie, The 'In The Blink Of An Eye' track sounds great and I will be definitely checking out the 'Rendevouz' album as the song does not appear on the aforementioned greatest hits album. Terry, Christopher Cross is certainly at the

I am just listening to new Christopher Cross album ‘Secret Ladder’ which is simply stunning Westcoast AOR. I am unfamiliar with his earlier work; are any of his previous albums up to this standard and if so, where should I start. Thank-you for your anticipated co-operation.

Great album, however, not quite liking it as much as the phenomenal 'California 37', at the moment. Favourite tracks from the new album are 'Son Of A Prison Guard' and 'I'm Drinkin' Tonight' which, IMHO, rank up there with the best that they have ever written.

Fantastic album and one of the purest AOR releases of all time. The debut is just as good, IMHO.
