I've seen Fahran a few times and they have always been great. Their second album 'Chasing Hours' is brilliant and gets better with repeated plays. It is very heavy but still really melodic. Enjoy the show. \m/

One of the best albums I have heard in a long time after only one full listen. This ticks all the boxes for a Melodic Rock fan: great performances, great melodies, great production, huge choruses and most importantly fantastic catchy hook-laden songs.

I've used Kicksarter/Pledge for FM, Boulevard, Harem Scarem and Jace Pawlak in recent years and never had a problem. I would also add that these bands/artists have all had reasonable prices and kept the fans informed all along the way.

I read the posts, I had been warned but I still went to the link. That's two minutes of my life I'll never get back... Good luck to them, I am not sure of their target audience but I doubt many of them will be on this Board.

Terry, if you like 'The Grand Design' then definitely check out their previous album 'The Greatest Wonder' which I personally think is as good, if not marginally better. I love Denis Ward's vocals and exceptional production on both albums.

This is an excellent album that I was fortunate to review for next issue of Firworks. Fans of classic Blues artists like Stevie Ray Vaughan, Eric Clapton, Jeff Healey and Joe Bonamassa are going to love this.

Hi Jodes, I would recommend from recent months:- The Winery Dogs - 'Hot Streak' - arguably the most original of the new bands Nordic Union - 'Nordic Union' - very classy Swedish Melodic Rock that sounds exactly like you would expect: a cross between Eclipse & Pretty Miads. Rick Springfield - 'Rocket Science' - as I know that you are not adverse to a bit of Country, this should be rig

I'm with Terry on this, as good as 'Tearing Down The Walls' is, I prefer the predecessor 'Address The Nation'. Also love Treat's 'Coup De Grace'. Figge, you probably picked the two best examples from recent years.

Fantastic album that any long-term fans will love. Yes, there's a definite Country vibe running through some of the songs but still enough Melodic Rock for those that do not like Country. This is always an interesting board to view as I cannot remember the last time that any artist released an album that was acclaimed by all. Too Country, too heavy, not heavy enough, poor production, too long

I have had the full album for several weeks, on MP3 format, to review for the next edition of Firework and the production sounds far superior to the YouTube sound clip. Fans of the first two albums, like my good self, won’t be disappointed, however, be warned there are a couple of ‘leftfield’ dance-style songs at the end of the album. I personally thinks it is their best album since the

Great post McMack and I am hoping that the album resonates the same with me having just received it through the post. I am preparing for my first fill listen through tomorrow.

Fantastic albums especially the first two. The third had its moments but, IMHO, was ultimately too long. They were sensational at Rockingham last year and I am looking forward to seeing them again at HRH-AOR next month.

Last year I discovered Kamelot through the excellent 'Haven' album and have subsequently procured a lot of their back catalogue. I have also recently discovered Avantasia.

It is great album and here is a link to Kieran Dargan's recview of the album on Roktopia that originally featured in Fireworks last year. I also did an interview with the band that gives a bit more background detail. Stala & SO Album Review I personally thought that ‘You Don't Mind’ was one of the stand-out AOR songs of 2015.
