Definitely Unruly Child for me. Thought Can't Go Home was good to great, but on the new one I really like 'Breaking the Chains' and...erm, that's it. Looking through the track list I can't actually recall any of the other tracks, and I only revisited it a couple of days ago...not a good sign!

Didn't have high hopes for this one as the Chicago album Jay DeMarcus produced is easily in my bottom 3 Chicago albums ever (not including the Xmas CDs of course) and it was also a surprise that Jason hadn't actually written any of the 'new' songs - but it's definitely a very good listen, hopefully we'll see/hear more from him soon.

Obviously Bob isn't singing like 30 years ago but I've never seen/heard him being less than 'good' and is usually still excellent - that sounds like a rare off night, although I know there are others who agree about his voice generally - but I'm not very forgiving of bad vocals when I hear them (like anytime I sing...hahaha!) so it's not just me hearing what I wanna hear...

In the bit about Jack - 'On bass, and co-lead vocals on a few tracks, Jack Blades is well known for his melodic, yet hard rocking approach to songwriting'.

Haven't actually had a chance to listen to it yet, but pleased to see Jim Peterik credited as co-writer of a few tracks, that had presumably been reported but it came as a pleasant surprise to me!

Of the ones I have... Can't Hold Back Playing For Keeps Right Here Eddie Money Ready Eddie Nothing to Lose It's the top 3 and a best-of that get 90% of the spin time from me but was looking forward to the new one (and have been meaning to pick up at least No Control for yonks).

Wow, clearly even less of a hair metal fan than I thought - I've got precisely one of those (Mr. Big) and only any interest in a few others (Dokken, Alice Cooper and *maybe* Winger).

Always been a singer-songwriter fan so many of them have loads, a few spring immediately to mind... Harry Chapin - Merceneries (and most of his output really!) Al Stewart - Roads to Moscow (Plus Year of the Cat, Running Man, etc) Gordon Lightfoot - The Wreck of the EQdmund Fitzgerald, Miguel (and many more) Seals and Crofts - Wayland the Rabbit Billy Joel - Those mentioned above + Goodnigh

The only Kansas album I really don't care for is the orchestral remakes one (Always never the Same) but my top 3 would be Song for America, Leftoverture and In the Spirit of things - all VERY different albums!

Both Eternity and Jim's subsequent solo album rated very highly with me, while seeming to go almost unnoticed even on here, very much looking forward to the new one. :-)

Prior to the full original lineup reunion there was a point where Downes was trying to reunite with Wetton AND have Payne on board as well, I understand Wetton wanted nothing to do with 'pub singer Payne'. Personally I love both of them, but can sort of understand why Wetton would be dismissive of the idea. On an unrelated note...how is it that Wetton was such an average singer prior to Asia a

See front page - it's to do with him being based in America these days - to be honest I thought this was going to happen as soon as he moved (a few years back now). He'll certainly be missed (especially by the ladies...) but Mr. Ward is obviously a very capable player too and the Magnum legend rolls on!

Interesting about the couple of slight changes to track order on KOD and Mindfields (I'd thought Mindfields was going to be the US tracklisting anyway, so that threw me doubly!), can sort of see why they did them, though don't think I'd have bothered at this late stage. The notes don't mention a couple of other things of interest about the set though, namely why On the Run and DGS were dropped

I love Astra almost as much as (and on some days even more than) the debut. For me Alpha is the runt of the litter, but it's still at least half amazing - the b-sides from that era (Daylight and Lyin' to Yourself) are great too and should have been on the album IMO.

I do think that CD length albums did a lot of harm to the album market in the long run as they very rarely justify the length, I'll even concede that Toto's 90s albums were too long and I probably wouldn't have admitted that at the time. I also remember when Billy Joel's River of Dreams came out and I said, 'We've waited 4 years for only 10 songs'. Sure, I was only 13 so 4 years had seemed lik

Surprised the Pages albums haven't had the Rock Candy treatment by now, especially as they did the Mr Mister albums a few years ago (Pages is Richard Page and Steve George in case you didn't know). America also did a slightly softer, but pretty faithful (and decent) cover of this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NX4qtE9VFAU

I like Dig in Deep a lot, in fact the only cut from that album I don't care for is 'Sound Off' in which Danny sounds like a moaning old fart. The rest stands up well against their catalogue and I struggle to understand the hate it seems to get!

The one with the cardinal is Chicago VIII and it's got a bit of everything (even a Cetera rocker in Hideaway), Kath's epic Oh Thank You great Spirit being my favourite cut - an underrated album by many but definitely worth a revisit. And if you don't like an overdose of Cetera vocals try XI - Baby What a Big Surprise is the ONLY Cetera vocal on that album, no one knew it would be his swansong but

Never First 5 or 6 tracks on Chicago VII...I'm not usually a fan of instrumentals but I love that album - probably not one for Terry to reevaluate now (tho it's never too late to rediscover VIII and XI - not X tho, never X, it makes the patchy VI look like a masterpiece!). As a rule though
