I may well be in the minority here but I absolutely loved Secret Society (bar the first track/title track) , which I thought blended the hooklines and melody we all love about Europe with a more modern approach (which I also love). It's the only cd since they reformed that I play still. There are other cool songs scattered through the other albums but that is my favourite ever Europe cd. And A

Yep - better than ever. Love having all the new stuff that gets posted on the front page each day. Front page and noticeboard are the two must see pages every day for me. And well done (not in a condescending way) for making the amends. When you've put your heart and soul into something it's hard to accept others don't see the improvement. Naturally we are all defensive about the jobs we do an

Silverthorn grew on me massively to the point where I definately preferred it to the last couple with Khan which lost some of the Kamelot melody for me, particularly Poetry for the Poisoned which I just never grew to love despite trying hard. Let's hope we all love the next one! Jay

Yep, the Freedom Call was one of their best - awesome from start to finish. Didn't pick up the Vanishing Point cd last year. Have The Fourth Season but not the latest so will check it out. Also, can't wait for the new Nightwish with Floor Jansen - really hope it lives up to expectations but they haven't let me down yet!! Jay

I love loads of different styles of music but I have a really soft spot for quality melodic metal/power metal etc. So for anyone with a similar taste for bands of that ilk (Edguy/Avantasia, Kamelot, classic Helloweeen/Queensyche etc) there have been a whole load of great releases recently that might have gone under the radar. If so, check out cd's by Arion, Black Fate, Harmony, Triosphere,

Really pleased to hear from the news article that Kamelot are due to release a new cd this spring. Much as I adore Roy Khan's voice I didn't think the last couple of cd's he did with Kamelot hit the heights of the earlier albums, and thought Silverthorn was a massive return to form. Hoping this new one carries on the great songwriting and performances from Silverthorn. Jay

I think it's TNT. Off the top of my head I want to say Lonely Nights off the My Religion album, but I could be wrong. Jay

Sounds like a song Nickleback would do. Can hear Chad Kroeger singing that - even lyrically it's right out their songbook. Decent song though and like Halestorm a lot - will be seeing them this March in Norwich for the 4th time. Jay

Nearly always physical cd's through Amazon in the UK on my prime account. Like next day delivery and like the autorip facility where you get a download of the cd too. If the cd is mega expensive i have occasionally downloaded from Itunes but it's never a first choice. Jay

Yep - got mine too today. Seem like excellent guys promoting their music like this and I'll certainly spread the word best I can. There is also a paypal account where you can make a contribution to costs of postage etc if you feel so inclined. Jay

Check out a new cd from a band called from Black Fate who have just released the album 'Between Visions and Lies' if you have a soft spot for Kamelot and Roy Khan as a vocalist. Absolutely excellent cd from with great songs and absolutely awesome vocals. Sorry - posting this in a hurry so no time to pop in links but I know You Tube has 'Lines in the Sand' and 'Weight of the World' on there. Ja

Excellent album. Hadn't come across them until I saw the review for this cd in Powerplay mag - think it was Album of the Month actually. Singer is much more 'rock' than classical/operatic and the songs are awesome. Well worth checking out for anyone into the slightly heavier side if Mel Rock. Jay

Yep, Sherlock Brothers supported in London with a female fronted 'Blondie' style band first on the bill. Don't know who they were though. Incidentally, the Sherlock Brothers are well worth checking out. And H.E.A.T. were sensationally good in London on Wednesday night. Eric is such a superb singer and frontman - immense. Jay

Daniel also sings in a modern rock band called Lavett. Check out this excellent song off their debut from last year. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=89zewtP87UE Jay

Superb cd from start to finish. Daniel Heiman is an immense singer (loved the Heed album from a few years ago in particular) and he excels on this. A great mix of very melodic power metal and rock. For those into the more melodic style there is much here to enjoy. Check out 'In Search Of', 'What If' and 'You Are' in particular. Absolute quality and one of my favourites of the year. Jay

I'm definitely in the live DVDs/BR camp. Particularly when the band is great visually and that adds so much to the live experience. For instance, I couldn't have listened to a live Skid Row cd but the live video footage was immense. The new H.E.A.T. Live release also feels like a missed opportunity - the live performance is so good it would add a load to the cd only release. Have to agre

Great to get all the opinions and it seems we all have a lot in common! However, I still stand by the fact that if I had listened to minute long samples, once or twice, of many albums I have grown to love over the years, I would have never bought them in the first place. And I would have missed out on some incredible music that has given me a huge amount of pleasure. One of my all time fa

Hey Carl - I get that but I think it's also true that in the age of 30 sec samples we judge very quickly the strength of the songs on a cd rather than living with it over a period if time. There is so much music vying for our attention it's no wonder we don't persevere with those that don't thrill us right from the start. I know that more and more I'm returning to albums that I didn't real

Just an observation. Seems to me (myself included) that when a new cd is released we expect every song to be amazing and if we don't love the songs on the first couple of listens it gets dismissed as not great. I look back on all my favourite albums from the past and wonder how they would cope with modern day samples/instant love. Even now those cd's have a few stand out tracks, some which are

Hey, ShawBlades, I was with you but give it a few listens. It really does take a bit of perseverance but it's absolutely worth it. Jay
