Definitely interested but not keen on instrumentals on the whole, so The Snow Goose is never going to be one for me, what's a good one to start with with that in mind?

Generally I prefer albums (in this genre at least - I listen to a lot of singer-songwriter stuff too and don't need that to be uptempo!) to rock, but at the end of day it's about song quality - I'd rather listen to a ballad-heavy album of quality songs than a rocking album that's generic and ultimately boring.

Gave it a listen and it's fine, but didn't grab me any more than Infinity (in fact somewhat less I would say) which fell out of rotation pretty quickly, so going to be a pass here. If tours were still happening (remember gigs?) I'd be there in a heartbeat though.

In the UK it's also #1 in the rock charts (big surprise) as well as the physical sales chart (and #3 for download sales) and Scottish albums (think the Scots are sensible folk who base their charts on what people actually buy...the UK charts are messed up big time with the way streaming is counted).

In central London today and was pretty surprised to see an ad for this album sprawled across a London bus! Record label must have got a Covid discount I guess?!

I liked Rapture and Now What, but Infinite did nothing for me and the mixed reception here isn't convincing me to give this one much of a try (and certainly not a buy) either.

Out of the Silence is a stunning slice of Brit AOR and utterly essential. Blood From Stone is a mess of badly produced bland/generic hard rock and utterly forgettable. Calm Before the Storm 2 and Sacred Ground are both very listenable without approaching the heights of OOTS. Not heard the rest. These are my opinions, others are available! :)

I love almost all things Toto but prefer their harder side (which does dominate in the grand scheme of things) so OIN isn't too high up my list of Toto albums, but that said Chase the Rain and (especially) In a Little While are two of the most gorgeous 'softer' tracks in their entire discography. On the other side of the coin Chelsea might be their worst song ever, I just find that one irritating

Chasing Hours (rather than time) was great, but I was less enamoured of Vapours, the melodic side was downplayed a fair bit on that one. Haven't got around to getting the first (pre-Matt) album.

Glad I didn't faff around and just went for the download with this one, great album tho!

Hmmm, not sure they should be churning out albums at this pace, Can't Go Home was mostly solid but Big Blue World was utterly unmemorable, barring Breaking the Chains.

Don't Believe Anymore is another great one from them that should have been huge. And, on a similar note, I'm always amazed that John Waite's These Times Are Hard For Lovers pretty much bombed.

Jamel's very likeable but he doesn't usually have much to say other than 'that was really amazing'. I absolutely appreciate the comments of folks upthread who aren't into this stuff, but bear in mind that some of them have pretty big followings and are exposing a lot of people to some great music by doing this - I've also found some stuff I'd overlooked for years as a result (Allman Brothers f

I know a Dokken reaction was posted on here a while back, but haven't seen many relatively obscure mel-rock reactions to date until this one for Magnum - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VBXZvsm4y6E&t=410s Most of these channels leave me cold, but Greg is quite fun and I do really enjoy Andy and Alex, worth checking them out to see a couple of young guys with actual musical knowledge gettin

One of my favourite Asia albums (of any era), it's a lot darker and moodier than much of their output, but has a few really good 'commercial' songs too (What About Love, Ghost in the Mirror, Long Way From Home).

I've found with all the Lionville albums that they're pleasant to listen to but very little sticks, I can barely conjure up how any of their songs go (aside from Waiting for a Star to Fall, ha) and I've heard them plenty of times. On that basis don't think I'll be adding any more from them to the ol' collection.

Not long after I became a massive Toto fan I bought Boz Scaggs's 'Some Change' album and almost fainted with shock when I saw he'd dedicated it to Jeff Porcaro.

Sadly not, Magnum fans have been clamouring for this for years, no idea who owns the rights but presumably there's a reason related to those behind it's failure to emerge.
