Still haven't had a chance to spin this, have been too busy with the new Marillion album (which is looking like being their first UK top 5 album since 1987 no less - and deservedly so!) but really looking forward to it.

Can't afford many gigs these days (4 of the below have been presents from the other half), but this year I've made up for it with quality over quantity: The Winery Dogs (with Inglorious as support) Avantasia Magnum Colin Blunstone Gordon Lightfoot (bucket list item for me) Blue Oyster Cult Billy Joel Only Europe/Dare, Foy Vance and Marillion to come, though hoping to add Tyketto and m

Agree with Dare and Boston and would have to add Chicago to the list!

He does have some great tracks, but sadly rarely more than 2-3 per album and the rest is awful. Amongst the ones I love though are Have Mercy on the Criminal, Daniel, Empty Garden, Healing Hands, The One and I'm Still Standing.

By rights I should love these guys but neither album ever really clicked with me, the first one I do rate about half of (the aforementioned 'Hold Back the Night' being my favourite by a distance), but TTB for me has one great tune in 'I'll Be There When It's Over' and 10 other songs I can't remember the first thing about. No, wait, one's a 30 second instrumental, IIRC...I'll get me coat!!

Wow, didn't realise how diverse opinions were on Europe's 'new' output. 'Secret Society' has somehow not found it's way into my colleciton, but I'd rank the others thus: 1. Last Look at Eden 2. War of Kings 3. Start From the Dark 4. Bag of Bones Still lots of good stuff on 'Bones', just not as consistent as the others for me (and possibly only me!).

Didn't know a new album was on the cards and 'Epic' lived up to it's name, so looking forward to this (despite the non-involvement of Mike Slamer this time around) but...where to start with that press release!! Awful and embarrassing doesn't even begin to cover it!

After 6 years of trying I'm still yet to find anything particularly interesting in an English charity shop, but did pick up Rik Emmett's 'Absolutely' album for £1 on a trip to Scotland - the shop also had Tall Stories debut in stock (but didn't need to duplicate that one). My best find when in NZ was probably John Wetton's 'Battle Lines', still one of my favourite albums and I paid next to no

If he only needs to do it for a song or two...why don't they just drop a song or two from the set for a bit?

His own version of 'Healing Waters' is also excellent. Least keen on the title track and 'We Dream in Color' (sic) but even they are decent tracks, the album as a whole is a true underrated gem.

Wouldn't know where to start, it's rare I find an album that doesn't have at least one song title duplication from somewhere else in my collection. Actually, I have noticed that I really like songs called Walk on Water - Neil Diamond, Marc Cohn, Bob Catley (yes, despite the crappy production!) and Eddie Money - all great songs!

Couple of people mentioning Premonition, definitely a superior Survivor album than the debut, but ineligible for a 70s list! As for the Journey albums, I'd agree with Ling and take 'Evolution' over 'Infinity'...just! It's the more consistent album IMHO, whereas 'Infinity' has more highs, but also a couple of real duds (Can Do and La Do Da, or whatever the heck it's called, urgh!).

Would never listen to an instrumental album, I like the odd instrumental, but not many that go past the 3 minute mark! Live instrumental music on the other hand is a different beast (and that includes classical!).

Outside of 'Wind of Change' and a couple of other obvious tracks the Scorpions had largely passed me by somehow. Decided to check out a few songs during their appearance at Ramblin Man last year and was blown away, have only picked up their latest so far (which I think is fantastic, how would long term fans rate it I wonder?) so looking forward to investigating this consensus 'classic period'!

Like the One Man Trash CD a lot, but not at all keen on the Kimball/Jamison release. Can handle most of the songs individually, but the duet nature of the album becomes very tedious very quickly! Struggling with the Ozone album for similar reasons. In both cases I'm a big fan of all vocalists involved but they are not examples of something being better/bigger than the sum of their parts!

On their reunion tour a couple of years ago he introduced 'Roll to Me' as the song that paid for his house...so I think overall he's fine with it! ;-)

Agree with many of the above (especially Robin Zander, Bob Catley and Danny Bowes) and would add Steve Hogarth. Okay, he is my favourite singer...but there's a reason for that!

Billy Joel, supported by John Farnham. I was 7, though would have been 6 when my Dad came home and showed me the newspaper article announcing the concert (and one by Suzanne Vega). Seeing him for the 5th time in September and am just as excited now as I was then!
