100% agree with Carl. We would have missed out on a load of fantastic music without Frontiers. I have bought and enjoyed many of them. Jay

£11.93 on Amazon. At least that’s where I bought it from. Given the price Amazon have started charging for some cd’s these days it’s one of the more reasonably priced! Still not cheap though. I bought quite a lot more when most cd’s were £9.99. I use Amazon Music (£7.99 a month for unlimited digital music) for most new music to begin with now and then just purchase the cd’s I really

Yes, I'm really enjoying this. Have found them a little inconsistent in the past with a few decent songs but lots I couldn't really warm to but this is a strong set of songs with some great hooks. As mentioned above, Summer Of Love is a cool song but there are 5 or 6 of similar quality. Jay

I really like that - great chorus! Will check out the album, for sure. Jay

As Doncherry says, I knew exactly what this was going to sound like and I'm delighted that it sounds exactly like I knew it would! Couple of little swerve balls in there (final track 'I Have To Go' capturing a bit of the Slow, Love, Slow vibe from Imaginerium) but overall it's Nightwish light and very enjoyable. On the basis Nightwish take 5 years between cd's I'm really happy that Annette

I know that JR's solo work is pretty laid back but I think Dishwalla were at their best when they were in this mode. Opaline has very little up tempo rock on there - it's beautifully constructed, intelligently written, fabulously performed music topped off by the one of the finest voices I have ever had the pleasure to hear. The solo cd's follow suit. Both are outstanding and on the basis A B

Opaline is an absolute classic. Stunning songwriting and vocals. If you like that, both of JR Richards solo albums to date (A Beautiful End and Honore et Amore) are in a very similar vein and just brilliant. The st Dishwalla cd (their 4th and last with JR) was also excellent IMO but had a heavier/darker vibe than Opaline that preceded it. Their first, Pet Your Friends, was probably their most

Hey Rockdog, really enjoying this too. A few tracks I could live without but a handful of great songs and Say You Will is absolute belter of a track. The new BBMak is definitely my ‘pop’ cd of the month (probably year) but this is very good. Jay

Loved the Phantasma release too. Big fan of Serenity (hugely underrated band IMO) as well as Everon so that project was perfect. With you in hoping for a follow up at some point although I do think it went under the radar a little sadly so maybe not that likely. Real shame though as there were some epic tunes on that disc.And definitely worth checking out for any fans of the bands mentioned a

Yeah, I love this band and have done ever since Lucidity. And they’ve been using a little growling on select tracks for ages but it is never overdone - and doesn’t really bother me anyway. Have to say, Masters of Destiny, Hunters Moon and this latest track are all absolutely top notch. Looking forward to the full cd which I think is due early in 2020. Jay

Will have to dig them both back out and have a bit of a nostalgia session. Thanks for mentioning Sing Sing - they had completely slipped my mind.

I really like this cd and played it a lot at the time along with another cd by a band called Heyday (if anyone remembers that too)? Jay

Ummm...I like Sixx:AM a lot but have to say this doesn't do a lot for me. Sounds like it could have come off Modern Vintage and not revisited that cd at all. Didn't connect with that. This Is Gonna Hurt is still their high point for me but I have made a killer single album for my playlist from the 2 Prayer For The Damned/Blessed cd's. The Heroin Diaries has 2 of my favourite SAM tracks in

Signals of Intuition from the Siam cd The Language of Menace. Came out back in 1994 (I think) and I loved that cd but especially that song which is superb. For those who don't know it, it is more in the classic Queensryche style than Shy and it showcases Tony's vocals brilliantly. Jay

Fireworks and Powerplay. Have every issue of both. From years gone by I used to get Frontiers and Hard Roxx. And Kerrang up until around the late 90’s when I gave up! Jay

I’ve got everything but Lord Tracy and Precious Metal. Pretty solid list although i’m sure we would all have a different order. Jay

For what it’s worth, I just think that Sonata Arctica have moved away from being a power metal band now. As much prog as power and as much rock as metal. I have bought every cd (including the new one which arrived yesterday) and if I’m honest the last one I really loved was Winterhearts Guild - their absolute high point imo. Having said all that, i’m enjoying this new one more than any

Yeah, I really liked Proof Of Life too but feel the new one has a more consistent set of songs. Some real highlights on POL though. Jay

Thanks Wardy - I did check it out at the time but maybe didn’t give it a lot of airplay. Will dig it out. So many cd’s I’ve got that I probably never gave due care and attention too! Jay

Should probably have added that if you check out Art Of Anarchy, 1,000 Degrees on YouTube,Spotify,Amazon Music etc it will give you a good indication of the sound on the SS fronted cd. Jay

So, I’ve liked a few Creed tracks and also a few Scott Stapp solo tracks. But I’ve loved his latest cd - definitely a top 5 for me this year. This led me to check out Art Of Anarchy, The Madness, and having given it a few listens I actually think this is as strong as his latest solo cd. Excellent with a very Shinedown vibe. I know I’m late to this but just wondering what others thou

Loved Invertigo. Didn’t realise the link with Pseudo Echo however so good information! Agree about Shannon Noll and BBMak - Into Your Head is a classic IMO. The song Run Away is one of my all time favourites. And really looking forward to the new BBMak cd released anytime soon! Jay

Hey, not having a go here but I don’t think the impact someone has had on a few cd’s we like should be equated to the impact or loss of anyones life in general. I’m pretty sure that wasn’t the intention so not being personal or critical at all, but a life is a life and the impact that has is really hard to quantify. Seems to me that Kip has had more than his share of heartache and my t

I second that. I use this list as my bible in terms of what to order when. You are probably due commission from the labels for the amount I purchase that I might have missed if it wasn’t for this continuous release schedule. Many thanks Adolfo - very much appreciated! Jay

Loving this. Was optimistic after hearing the 3 tunes released already but this is such a consistent, well written cd with immense melodies, great production and thoughtful lyrics. I’ve liked some Creed and some of the previous SS solo cd’s (especially Proof of Life that had some great songs on it) but this is far and away, for me, the best piece of work he has ever done. A lot of cla

Hall of The a Mountain King for me too although I kind of lost track of their output after Handful Of Rain (which I must check out again as I can’t remember anything about it). What have I missed from that point on that I should be checking out? Jay

Not heard the full album yet as only out in the UK tomorrow but from the 3 tracks that have been released so far I've got high hopes for it. It's good to hear you rate the whole cd! It has always been the lack of quality material rather than the voice that has been the problem in recent years with Tate and as we saw on the last Avantasia album, and hopefully Sweet Oblivion too, if he has the
