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.

Probably my joint-favourite Foreigner album (the rather more obvious '4' being the other one!), love it!

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. Live version of title track from the last album, just in case there's a last chance for you! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k3dwSj5HQWk Only love can stop you from merely ex

'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'. :-)

Agreed, that was super. Musical snobs would do well to note their gentlemanly response to the (very leading) One Direction question.

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!

Well, if the likes of 'I'll Supply the Love' 'Manuela Run' and 'Girl Goodbye' struck you as 'smooth bar room music' I'd say listen to them again first and if you still feel the same way just accept that Toto aren't a band for you!

I think the chronology of major recordings of 'Don't Turn Around' goes something like: Tina Turner (b-side) 1986 Aswad - major hit 1988 Eyes - 1990 Neil Diamond - Minor AC hit 1991 Ace of Base - Major hit 1994 Probably not an exhaustive list...actually I saw Albert Hammond in May and he did it (along with many other of the huge hits he's written over the years) and it's included on his

Heard the news first thing this morning and it's really only just sinking in now. Like many foolish people for years I thought that Survivor was just about 'Eye of the Tiger'. One listen to 'Vital Signs' proved just how wrong that assumption was! He was truly one of the greats of the genre (or any genre, for that matter) and I count myself very lucky indeed to have been at his second Firefest app

I've not listened to it, but I was there on the night and don't remember it being bad (tho I might have zoned out for this one, it's the only track from the debut that I don't rate), my overall recollection of the gig was how good John Wetton sounded, so it might be somethin' in the mixin'?

Would love to see it live to check it out for mysself. Have just got around to reviewing the album - muted response to it from Andrew (understandable as he is an 80s man) and others on the board, but while it won't change the world, I flippin' love it - and I didn't think I'd ever be able to say that about a new Chicago album again! http://uncle-unkool.blogspot.co.uk/2014/08/album-review-now-c

It's probably one of those albums that isn't quite as bad as it's reputation, but I've not felt the need to play it and check for a good few years now. Deen's fab vocal on 'A Better Life' is the one real gem on that one for me, though most of the Augeri tracks are okay to good, but nothing approaching the quality of 'Arrival'. As for Neal and Ross's vocals...oh dear, I can't believe they passed q

Enjoyed the debut, but wasn't blown away by it. They were very good live tho...so a pity that the London date clashes with Survivor! Although I am looking forward to this and the new Mr. Big album, it has to be said that I'm really anticipating a second Winery Dogs album a lot more than either.

Posted on their fb page witihn the last half hour or so: KANSAS would like to introduce lead vocalist and keyboardist, Ronnie Platt, as it’s newest member. Ronnie’s first show with the band will be September 12 in Oklahoma City, OK, where he will take over singing duties for departing vocalist Steve Walsh. Ronnie, please meet the greatest fans in the world….. “I want KANSAS fans

It's such a great song, and while he might never top it if you like it you should invest in all of his albums (well, he has only made 3 in the space of 20 years!). A couple of my favourites are: Where the Sun is Buried - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j_0xLtUycuU When the Harvest is In - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kPJ9bDAi77w

For some reason I still haven't got around to getting 'Wake the Sleeper' but I loved 'Into the Wild'. Really looking forward to this one; the two songs they previewed at the Koko/DVD gig in Feb (including 'One Minute') sounded great.

I can see where you're coming from Bruce, but they're now in a position where they have less songs in the set than albums to draw from, so LOTS has to give (there was nothing from 88-92....well, 88-2007! in the set either, so it's not just the first two albums that don't get a look in at times). Working from a bigger pool of those old songs and mixing it up more from tour to tour would be nice
