AMAZING! There is no doubt that this "version" of Candlebox is a band reborn. Nine out of the eleven tracks connected immediately, with at least seven of those being some of the band and Kevin Martin's best songwriting to date. The album has passion, emotion, angst, heartbreak, political and social commentary and swagger to spare... all wrapped up in memorable hooks and unforgettable

The show, while not stellar, was still delivered with passion and above average musicianship. I was in attendance at the same venu back in 1993, when Candlebox opened for Living Colour on their Stain tour. The only slight issue I had was with the audio. The vocals, drums and bass, were clear to my ears... but the guitar duo were not as "in front" in the mix as I would have preferred

Even as I type this I know it's the wrong thing to do, but I'm going to do it any way... one time and one time only. (that means respond to negative/critical comments or perhaps it is just a misunderstanding) What you are about to read below is directed at only a select few... The problem with texting and posting on message boards is that the reader is unable to discern the writers tone.

I would like to first "publicly" thank Andrew for the website he has created and this noticeboard he has "maintained". I have read the site and noticeboard for years and it inspired me. Isn't that what great music, art, poetry, film, and life is supposed to do... inspire? I will be launching a website in the next few weeks. The site will contain lengthy career spa

Just recently "rediscovered" the band Big Wreck and lead vocalist Ian Thornley. I knew I was a fan of a few songs, but had no idea about his "Solo" band Thornley and that he has an almost 20 year musical history. It was super exciting to have seven albums worth of "newly" discovered material to bounce back and forth between over the past few weeks. I would recomme

I believe Klett is out of the band, both recording and touring.(Lotus Crush) Scott Mercado is also out. (Touring w/Geoff Tate Band) The current touring band is Kevin Martin, Adam Kury, Mike Leslie, Brian Quinn, and Dave Krusen. I'm pretty sure these five are on the new album, with the possible addition of Sean "Memphis" Hennesy on some guitars.(Maybe) We won't really know f

Yes, I've heard the Le Projet stuff. I think the singles are on iTunes, and through their website. I'm not sure if a full album is on the way or not. The Gracious Few? I wish Kevin Martin would front them for another album...

Thanks so much for the information. I was a casual fan of Big Wreck, but was unaware of his somewhat "solo" project "Thornley"and the 2015 acoustic album "Secrets". I knew the Big Wreck material I heard was great, but I had no idea of the depth, power and skill in both his musicianship and songwriting. I've purchased six of his albums in the past two days.

I have not been able to make it all the way through a DT album in one sitting since "Train Of Thought". I always compared and contrasted each album to "Images And Words" and "Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes From A Memory" which to these ears are their two greatest musical achievements. Well, "The Astonishing" is a worthy follow up to both of those and perhaps

Rabin had been working on a vocal album, a follow up to 2012's instrumental "Jacaranda". He also mentioned working with both Wakeman and Anderson on things over the past few years. My guess would be that the death of Chris Squire pulled them together with the decision that the time was now or never. Looking forward to this very much, although I do hope he finishes that solo albu

Jeff Watson mentioned on a podcast months ago that he found a cassette that had 5 or 6 songs from what would have been the fourth Mother's Army album. He had contacted everyone in the band and was planning on releasing the songs very soon. Does anyone have any more information? Was looking forward to hearing these...

There's a great podcast on iTunes called "The Double Stop". Episode #69 has an interview with Dave Jerden who produced the album. He actually talks about the masters being in storage that he no longer has access to, and if he could gain access the album could possibly be released. (I don't think he knows it was released a few years ago) He also talks about Rowan being one of his favorit

Listened through "Hot Streak" a few times, and while do doubt the musicianship is there, a few of the songs sound a little busy. However, "Fire" and "Spiral" are worth the price of the album. Two fantastic tracks that "elevate" the album.

I am a fan of the Dan Reed Network albums and thought "Heat" was an amazing collection of tunes. I however have struggled through the last couple of Dan Reed solo albums. I know quite a few years have passed since his time with the Network and his life experiences and philosophy have changed him, but how can his songwriting have changed so much? His acoustic tracks on the Network albums

Saw them a few weeks ago in Ohio, also disappointed only two newer songs. Thought maybe McNabb joining was the reason for the three Dokken tunes. (3 songs he already knew well) Anybody know why Oni is willing to sing Dokken songs, but doesn't cover any Mason songs from the 2nd Mob album? If I never heard Oni sing "Into The Fire" or "Tooth And Nail" again I would be fine.

Excellent combination of "Number Of The Beast" era with "Final Frontier". Retro and contemporary at the same time. I think whatever "stress" people are hearing in the vocals is intended.
