First time in the charts since 1989, so good on 'em. Still not been convinced to buy it myself though - 'Rockville' was the first FM album I bought and it didn't really blow me away, other than 3-4 tracks ('Crave' being the absolute stand-out), though I loved last year's Overland CD from start to finish, so still a bit torn. Overall my feeling is that this and the Peterik/Scherer releases - al

Was just listening to this today, funnily enough. I'm still amazed they managed an album this good after so many years of disappointments. Don't think they'll be near the UK any time soon, but would also love to hear 'Free at Last' and 'More Will Be Revealed' live. 'Love Lives on' is great, but there's no need for another ballad to be added to the live set!

Don't really get why the Eagles comp STILL sells, surely it's been surpassed by more comprehensive collections? Why would you buy an Eagles compilation that didn't have 'Hotel California' (for example) on it?

Of course, with the way the RIAA counts multiple discs towards certifications (why I have never understood!) some on that list (Billy Joel and both Beatles entries for starters) have only sold half as many actual copies as stated.

Terry K. Wrote: ------------------------------------------------------- > Is that a success/oddity? Did they not chart for > past releases- post IV at least? Wouldn't know.. T It certainly is! Last studio album to chart was 'The Seventh One' (#64 in 1988), Past to Present made the charts briefly (#153 peak), so this is the first time the band have been in Billboard in 25 years.

Think it was released a week later in the US so wouldn't expect it to appear until the next chart is released. If Mr. Big and Revolution Saints can scrape the US top 200 Toto have GOT to make it in...don't they??

I see Toto XIV has entered the UK charts at #43 - the first studio album to chart since The Seventh One and only their third ever UK Top 50 release! I know it won't hang around for a second weeek, but it's still good to see - presumably there will be some impressive numbers coming in from the 'Toto stronghold' countries in Europe!

I don't even understand the last part of the quote, not sure if that's Bobby being incoherent in his wild delusional madness (sooooooo sad!) or if the interview has been translated from English to German and back and gone a bit wrong along the way? Did the interviewer ask any other tricky questions, like 'Will you finish/release a solo album before anyone who might have ever given a damn about it

You've missed a key letter there Terry, he said 'pref' (as in preferably) not 'pre' (as in before)! ;-)

Certainly guitarists/vocalists always have and always will have more of the spotlight than bass players and keyboardists, but there are many great players out there. A couple of my favourites are Peter Cetera (pity he all but gave up playing since the mid-80s, listen to his work on the early Chicago albums, he is amazing and at least as good a player as he is a singer!) and, more obscurely, Ge

Also, you don't get charged when you preorder - only when it's shipped, so you would be getting something for nothing - and what would stop people from getting a free song and then cancelling the order? If it's a kickstarter campaign and you're contributing in advance to the recording/financing of a project then fair enough to expect something, but a standard pre-order? If you pre-order a book

Nope, don't get this at all, sorry. When I pre-order an album I expect to....erm, get it sent out ASAP once it's released. Review copies go out early so that reviews can be published and lead to a buzz come release date, this is nothing new. To use that (or anything else) to justify illegal downloading is an absolute crock of shit, to be perfectly blunt!

Funnily enough just picked up 'Lifeline' today in a small used CD store (yep, a few still exist!). Wasn't crazy about 'Momentum', but his singer-songwriter solo album from last year was excellent, as were Transatlantic and Flying Colo(u)rs efforts so looking forward to the new one!

Thunder are one of those bands I feel I should like an awful lot more than I do. Danny Bowes certainly has a great voice, but I find their albums deathly dull on the whole. They are MUCH better live IMHO.

Haha, well Neal Morse likes Marillion enough to be in a band with their bass player, so they must be doing something right! ;-) Your comments make you sound like you haven't heard anything from them since Fish left.

'Tuna Fish' always made me smile, the other one seemed to be trying too hard. My favourite album title of all time though is Jimmy BUffett's 'A White Sports Coat and a Pink Crustacean'. :-)

I don't think I've listened to the debut since 2012. At the gig the other week when they played tracks like 'Kayla' and 'The Storm' I wondered why that was. Then they played stuff like 'Forever in a Daze' and (urgh) 'Shoulda Coulda Woulda' and I remembered! 2nd CD is sooooooooo much stronger IMHO!
