Revolucion is a great album.. Really impressed with the line-up and Corabi's vocals... Hope this next album develops on that :)

I thought David Coverdale was disappointed that he wanted to do the remasters properly but the record company vetoed it? I stand by the Coverdale era Purple albums would benefit from the benefit of more modern technology (not overdoing it mind) to bring the sound out.. Personal taste and all that.

I've only listened to the album digitally so ultimately the mix will be flawed on that medium anyway, so i've more appreciated the songs and the weight rather than the audiophile quality.. It's tough because the original Deep Purple releases could do with a decent remix to bring more depth to them (in my opinion) so I guess both the originals and the 'Purple Album' are a good few degrees from

I admit I love 'Getting Tighter' even on Glen Hughes solo work. Would maybe have been nice to have him guest on this track.. But other than that, A fine album.. I could listen to some of the tracks quite regularly..

I'm really enjoying the album. Purists will argue about the originals etc etc but I think the album stands up in its own right with a heavier more bombastic delivery.. I think the final track 'Comin' Come' is ace! A fine effort by all involved..

4 Non Blondes were a good few years back. Planet of Women were both visually and audibly rather excellent.. :) Alannah Myles (of Black Velvet fame) has had her moments too

That's so sad.. I was a big fan during 'Look Sharp' era as a teenager..Marie really has battled illness and I hoped they'd be able to tour for a good few years yet..

Thunder tend to frustrate me.. Great singer, good musicians and some fine tracks, but also too many mediocre songs from a band of this quality. First three are excellent. 'Backstreet Symphony', 'Laughing on Judgement Day', 'Behind Closed Doors'.. Then it all goes a bit downhill. Then they come back with 'Shooting at the Sun' which is very strong, then it starts to fade away again. 'Wond

I've owned Windows PC's since Windows 3.x days and worked with them for over 20 years and..........I use a MAC.. I begrudge handing Apple my cash but I have a MacBook Pro (which I paid blood for) and it's mostly brilliant for what I need. My biggest issue is USB latency when recording Audio and MIDI and on the Mac it's been more than adequate. I find with Windows PC's, they work well when

I have to admit I was only a casual fan of Prince's own music. I'll probably find I like more of his stuff now I go looking for it.. Sad how that happens. What I did find interesting was the amount of songs performed by other artists that he either wrote or co-wrote. A very talented guy. Personally, I think the thing with Prince is that even if you do or don't like his music, it's hard to

I read yesterday some fairly uncomplementary about the 'Motley Crue' 1994 self titled album and John Corabi's inability to write lyrics. Which is contrary to Tommy and Mick who really sing its praises, (as do I) Now I can't deny 'The Heroin Diaries' was a great Sixx AM album and i've not really listened to the latest one a whole lot, but the music in between hasn't been bad but it's not exa

I can't say I'm the biggest BCC fan but they have done a few fine songs to these ears... That said, these 'Rock Star' spats are getting a little laughable.. All a bit public 'hand-baggy' then a year or so later its business as usual. Kids eh? :D

Personally I thought his singing (vocally) was really good. Strong voice, on pitch.. Overall I find the current Journey 'circus' seems a bit of a caricature of them in their prime. Neil Schon with his dark glasses etc looks a bit cabaret these days and the whole band looks somewhat incohesive.. Vocal performances seem the better part of the current show..

Some slightly left of field choices which don't sound bad but Jorn churning out the music he does feels like a Lamborghini continually driving round in circles in a supermarket carpark. Perhaps fun but woefully under-achieving on what he's capable of.. He also seem to continually look like he's trying to do a poo in every video..

I really liked Ian Paice's speech. Very honest and kinda summed up the Deep Purple journey.. Bands really are like life in concentrated shiny tinsel. Bonkers!

As we discussed before, Danny Bowes still has all the range of his earlier years but he doesn't 'attack' his voice in its delivery like he used to (probably a good reason why his voice is still in top shape)

I'm a bit 'poppy' in my Rock so I liked the original for its impact, then I nodded off, woke up for 1984 which I really liked then VanHagar had some fine moments.. Bits of all of those albums were brill. Couldnt warm to Different Kind of Truth at all.. Sounded like a polished album of outtakes to my Hagar-biased ears.. :D Ironically I preferred Eat Em and Smile more than virtually all the V

I remember listening to a Terraplane track back from when wheels were square 'Couldn't handle the tears' and thought Danny was belting the winkies out of his voice back then.. I'm an on-off Thunder fan so I don't want to get too carried away but credit where credit is due, regardless of whether Danny sounds like a 1970's Austin the day after a gig, he's one of the most consistent rock singers

Definitely.. Wasn't a criticism.. I don't think I've ever heard a duff note from Mr Bowes.. (A mate of mine who is an avid Thunder fan said apparently he was at a gig where Danny was ill and he sounded a bit off, but that's about it) To me he sounds like he's just wound the wick down a little to take care of his 'pipes'.

Dare I say even Danny Bowes seems to have a less aggressive attack in his voice now compared to the early days..I'd wager that even he needs to pace himself. :)

A very uncool and uncalled for tirade from the FP guys.. Glad to see MS's response had a bit more class and restraint..
