Saw them support Extreme in Manchester and thought they were excellent live. Will pick up the cd at some point - classy band. Jay

Brilliant. Love Dishwalla, love J.R.'s voice and loved his first solo album. Can't wait.

Yep, best of his solo releases and therefore my favourite thing he's done since Slave To The Grind (never massively into Subhuman Race bar about 3 tracks). Still think his voice is a little odd (thinner than normal) but the songs are, on the whole, a big step forward. Jay

Best of his solo albums by a country mile but his voice has a certain thinness to it - sounds a bit reedy, if you know what I mean. Still love Seb though!

I love Silver Spoon and King Of Hearts. Two of my all time favourite Kiss songs. A couple of other decent songs too and about 8 tracks that I wouldn't ever listen to again. But worth getting for those two killer tracks mentioned.

Agree - Paper Sun would make it onto any Def Lep compilation I put together. Classic DL. Jay

I think it's superb. As has been said, totally different to Nightwish and also totally different to Alyson Avenue. Just great laid back songs and a wonderfully classy vibe. Perfect cd to chill out to and just let the music flow over you. Love it. Jay

Just checked them out on Spotify and ordered both Attention Please and Monsoon second hand (like new) off Amazon for £1-40 each! Bargain. Sounds great - looking forward to receiving them and thanks for the heads up. Pride myself on knowing nearly everything out there in our various rock genres but I hadn't come across these guys before. Jay

Bit of a strange story this. I bought the first cd by Ra back in '02 called 'From One' and despite persevering with it, never really got into it. I obviously also bought Duality (their second album) as I just found it whilst digging out their first one again, but I maybe only gave it a cursory listen as I didn't even realise I had it! Anyway, I just checked out their latest cd, Critical Mass,

As someone who loves rock/metal music whatever the sub genre (assuming it's quality of course) I have to say the first few months of this year (and end of last year) is proving fantastic for releases from some of my favourite melodic metal bands. We've already had class releases from Within Temptation, Human Fortress, Dignity, Reinxeed, Primal Fear, Vandan Plas, Rhapsody of Fire and Royal Hun

Lizzy Borden featured quite a bit in that documentary and I know Alice felt LB was plagarising him at that time. Just a thought. Jay

Not sure I've listened to Big Money more than a couple of times since I bought it so I must give that another go first. Didn't grab me initially but that happens a lot these days with so many releases and less time than ever to give them the time needed. However, it means I have a load of cd's to go back to and discover when I do have the time!!

Just enjoy the rest of the songs and skip it if you don't want to hear The Touch again. Really not an issue. The track on the homepage sounds like a good, solid, quality Stan track and if that's the case all the way though I'll thoroughly enjoy the album! But if it's more fun we could just bitch about the one thing we don't like - always so much more fun to be negative. Jay

Greg Wrote: Good stuff.....I am a big fan of Tonic but the last album was a bit light....excited to hear the rest.... Agreed about the new Vertical Horizon CD...some good rock songs on it....that opener "you never let me down" is awesome.... Which was incidentally co written by Richard Marx (in case you didn't know). Jay

There was a great record shop in Manchester in the late 80's/early 90's called Powercuts and I would buy a whole load of stuff on gut instinct from there. And I mean hundreds and hundreds of records/cd's. In particular they had an annual sale of cut outs and I would pick up around a hundred new records on that first sale morning. It was a huge event in the life of metal fans in Manchester at

Totally agree - great track. Haven't heard all 6 songs from the Halfway to Hell EP yet, but I fully expect it to be as strong as pretty much everything Jacob has been involved in whether it be Mars Electric, Adler or Lynam. A real talent. Jay

Probably one of the most consistent bands around. Every cd delivers crunchy riff based rock with great chorus's. I would buy any of their cd's (and always do) without ever worrying how good it will be - as they are always excellent! Get stuck in - if you like a few of their songs you'll like them all (probably the one criticism people have of them is that they can sound samey - not an issue I

The production on the Relapsed cd is awful but there are still some good songs there. I know i picked my copy up for next to nothing so if you see it out there I'd get it. Just don't expect a wonderful sonic experience!

I don't know the song Trail Back Home (although I have Dangerous Love, Garden of Eden and the S/T. Am I missing a cd or was that a bonus track on a reissue or compilation? Thanks in advance for the info. Out of interest, if you're a fan of Stefan Berggren the first Razorback album was excellent (the songs Hymn and One by One were top notch). Jay

I love the riff to Crucified by Lillian Axe. Mentally good start to a cd. Jay

Yep, last years Wretched and Divine was a great album. Far more melodic than people may think and well worth checking out. Jay

The King of Fools EP has some cool bonus tracks on as well. I believe those are also on the singes collection mentioned above so if you want the Superheroes and King of Fools ep's that sounds like a good solution. I loved a song called God Fallen Silent which was the first track on the bonus disc of the Age of the Joker deluxe edition. Well worth getting if you haven't got it. Jay

Completely off the point, I realise, but I prefer Wildside and Just Getting Started to both the debut and Get Lucky. But I guess that wasn't the question!! Sorry. Jay

Always loved the Bulletboys debut and Hard As A Rock followed by Smooth Up In Ya was a pretty cool way to introduce yourself to the world. Jay

Sweet Marie and It's Not Me were my two favourite tracks. Really sold album although the production sounds a bit ropey these days. Jay

Terry. There was a Limited Edition version of AOTJ with a second disc with bonus tracks. The first song was called God Fallen Silent and was the strongest track in the whole package IMHO. Check it out! Jay
