Glass Tiger - Thin Red Line cd would fit the bill pretty well, I think. Jay

First Britney Fox is a great example as is Alleycat Scratch - and the first Cinderella cd I bought on the back of the cover as a 15 year old - and the first Tigertailz. The list is endless. Jay

Just to qualify this, I still get taken in by image etc. It's all part of the package to me and I like bands with a 'look' as well as a good artist! I also found loads of bands I love because of this - Powercuts in Manchester made a fortune out of me back in the day but even in this day of samples and spotify, I still go for a look on occasion. And I'm pleased I do - adds to the anticipatio

I bought loads of cd's in the late 80's and early 90's on the strength of the cover - mainly because I thought the band looked cool and had the sort of look that meant I'd like them - generally more fool me! But you live and learn! Jay

Can only comment on the fact the past 3 releases were all excellent in there own way - think Bone Carver was my favourite - but this new track sounds like the new cd may be a winner too. Will definitely be picking it up. But then again, I love MelMetal!!! Jay

So no love for Queensryche, Edguy, Nightwish, Within Temptation, Freedom Call, Kamelot, Delain, Masterplan, Sonata Arctica, Stratovarius or the many, many other bands that are less known - Black Fate, Harmony, Triosphere, Serious Black - just to mention a handful from the last few months. You are totally entitled to your opinion but these are amongst my favourite bands in melodic rock/metal an

Secret Society is my all time favourite Europe cd. The title track doesn't get the album off to a great start in my opinion, but from there on in it's superb. Always The Pretenders is probably my fave Europe song - love it! Jay

For any fans of J.R.Richards (former lead singer in Dishwalla) he's recording a new album at the moment funded through Pledge Music. The donations are already well over the 100% mark so great that we are going to get a cd of all new material. He is also doing an acoustic cd of Dishwalla songs which I'm sure will be awesome. Probably my favourite vocalist so I'm super happy about this. J

Excellent album and consistently good all the way through. I'm in the minority of being someone who really enjoyed Silvertorn (definitely more than Poetry for the Poisoned) but I agree this is another step forward. Jay

No Kamelot??!!! Surely EVERYONE is waiting with anticipation for that? Along with Nightwish (which is superb) and the new Shinedown later in the year I'm looking forward to that more than anything. Oh, not forgetting the new A-ha too. Jay

Not sure if there's been much talk about this new cd but to me it seems like it's gone under the radar, which is a real shame as it's a fantastic album. For me this is their most consistent effort since the debut (although I really liked Clash of the Elements too) and a return to form after a couple of up and down releases. Songs like 'Everything', Life Without You' and 'Crack In The Wall'

I pre-ordered this from Amazon too (I have Prime) and I got the auto rip on Friday and notification of despatch yesterday (Saturday). Listened to it from the download once and sounds great. Jay

On a good note, if I can avoid suicide, homicide or accidental death, as a metal fan i've got a pretty good chance of getting past my 50's which is more than my dad (or his dad) managed. As you say Ramsey, interesting read with a few flaws that they readily admit. Pleased i'm not into Hip Hop (for many reasons)! Jay

I thought Angra had lost the plot a bit over the last couple of cd's but this is simply outstanding.Up there with Rebirth, which was their last great album in my opinion. No need to add anything to what Akman said about the actual cd - agree completely. Jay

My most anticipated release of the year. Can't wait to get my hands on it (although I'm on holiday for a fortnight from next Saturday so will have to wait ANOTHER two weeks until I get back home). Pleased early signs from others are good. I liked a lot of Imaginareum as individual tracks - just didn't think it really worked as an album if you know what I mean? Once and Dark Passion Play were

Love it - most consistent set of songs since The Paramour Sessions for me. Plenty of stand out tracks. Jay

Blimey - doesn't seem a second since the last album came out. In fact, I need to give that a few more listens as I liked it but never really got to know it, if you know what I mean? Anyway, great to see they are still pumping out quality tunes on a regular basis. Jay

Can't wait for the new Nightwish in March. Really interested to hear what they've come up with for the first studio album with Floor Jansen. Also looking forward to the new Hinder (although not sure what to expect) and the new Gun cd. Jay

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
