I like it, though it is more reminiscent of the mellower jazzy side of Toto for the most part. Bobby is definitely is great voice throughout.

Generally, I prefer my music sung in English, but I got past the language barrier for Babymetal so I suppose I can do the same for Arnel. :-)

I enjoyed the new Mecca and it felt complete to me when I listened. I didn't feel like there should have been more. I think we have been conditioned to the "norm" for awhile that albums "should" be 10-12 tracks long. Longer than 12 feels like a bonus and less than 10 can feel like "this isn't an album, its an EP". I think this release is one to challenge the not

Hi, I wonder if anyone could help me. I was trying to find where (I think) Andrew had posted somewhere when he shipped out his last batch of orders. Trying to see if he said anything about a delay in the Mecca T-Shirts. Does anyone know? I had ordered the CD/T-Shirt bundle of both the Radio Sun and Mecca. The shipment I received included The Radio Sun CD and T-Shirt, the DangerAngel CD, and

Just listened to the samples. Sounds somewhat Journey-esque musically - some upbeat rock songs and some reflective ballads. A few of the songs are sung in his native Tagalog from what I can tell (not an expert on that language at all, but from what I recognize as the sounds of it, this sounds like that.) That would not be a deal breaker for me - heck I have both Babymetal albums and don't know

I'm looking forward to it. Unless I'm mistaken, I should be getting a pretty big package from Andrew any day now with the new CDs from Mecca, The Radio Sun, DangerAngel, and House of Shakira as well as tshirts for Mecca and The Radio Sun. Yoda would have a hard time training me too - I do get anxious waiting for stuff like this. But I try to be considerate about it - I never put delays to bei

Good review. I was at that show myself. One correction, the encore was Makes Me Wanna Sing, not C'mon Rock. Also, I thought the crowd was pretty into it from my vantage point. I had a venue VIP ticket so I was up on the balcony and able to look down at the crowd periodically. I can definitely say the folks in the front half of the room closer to the stage were rocking out - smiles, fists in

On the bright side, JSS, if the author had included a mention of you, he probably would have called you Jeff Scoot Sootoe or something, given that he couldn't be bothered to check the correct spelling of Augeri. :-/

I have to wonder if the lack of promotion is somewhat intentional. I.e. maybe Frankie wants to minimize drawing attention to the fact that he is the only original member left? Then again, why tour if you aren't going to let people know you're coming? This is an ongoing problem with Survivor, I think. I remember back when they were touring with Jimi and Dave as co-lead vocalists, I was wal

Interesting...in the article he refers to "editing" the tour they just went on "for spring of next year." Is that a reference to a possible live album release from the Purple tour?

I saw Whitesnake last year at the Greeley Stampede in Colorado and would have to agree. David still has it - does he have the voice he had 25 years ago? No. But if he knows that, knows what he can and can't do and tailors his live performances to the voice he has now, he is still an entertaining and engaging frontman who can still sing quite well. I had no complaints about the vocals at that

I understand about the kids - my wife and I just had a baby 2 weeks ago and I expect it will greatly curb my concert going. After a lengthy period with very little live music, I have now enjoyed two years of great concerts. Here is this year's: January - Raiding the Rock Vault in Las Vegas with Robin McCauley, Paul Shortino, Howard Leese, Hugh McDonald, Mark Boals, Andrew Freeman, Jay Schel

The short version is he married a pastor and has been leading worship music in her church as his Journey schedule allows. he decided to write some original music as a part of the worship leader role and I guess he is releasing an album of this.

Some that come to my mind: Warrant/Cherry Pie Skid Row/Slave to the Grind Danger Danger/Screw It! (although I may be in the minority on that) Cinderella/Long Cold Winter Work of Art/In Progress John Norum/Face the Truth (although I really like Total Control) Europe/Wings of Tomorrow Metallica/Ride the Lightning House of Lords/Sahara Trixter/Hear! and I agree on Masterplan/Aeronautics

Guess I can't complain too much - they did do the VIP meet and greet before they ended up cancelling. So at least I got a photo with the band, autographs, a soundcheck where they played most of several songs, including Afraid of Love and Pamela. Yeah, the gig would have been cool - I had 3rd row center- but I still got more than most Denver fans.

I almost went to this but opted to go to Toto instead. I guess I would have gotten a show if I went to this instead, but no regrets. I did VIP for Toto, so I still got to hear soundcheck and meet the guys, get a photo, autographs, etc. before they cancelled the actual show. Still, I have yet to catch Kelly-fronted Foreigner live and I really need to - love Kelly's voice!

Thanks for the input everyone. I had also asked his tour manager, who has been the one sending the VIP detail emails. He came back today and suggested the book or the figure. Hmmm.

Dropped some dough on a VIP ticket to Ace a few months ago - show is tonight. Really looking forward to it. Only have seen Ace live once - on the Psycho Circus tour. But as an added bonus, I get to meet him and get a picture with him, not to mention all the extra stuff they throw in (Poster, signed 8X10, signed CD, t-shirt, custom guitar picks, laminate). First time I am meeting a founding memb

The additional vocals were provided by a second keyboardist they had on stage, literally positioned in Jon Cain's shadow. He was hard to see but he was there. Great show! I always liked them with Deen, but it was very cool to see the legendary Steve Smith back on drums. 4/5 of the Escape/Frontiers lineup!

Yes, that was Bill Payne on keys. I was at that show, he got to play a great piano/keys solo.

At first when I heard he had done this I thought, oh geez. But I have to say, I thought it was surprisingly effective especially coupled with the video.

I liked what I heard, will be pre-ordering. In fact, the clip motivated me to purchase their previous release from NEH before the pre-order link went up.

My takeaway when I read that was "Huh. Stephen Shareaux and Chip Z'Nuff. Interesting." And that was the extent of my excitement. No clue about the other three guys and Enuff Tracee, as I will now call them, doesn't hold enough interest for me personally. I don't know, I do like some Kik Tracee and some Enuff ZNuff, so certainly if I hear enough (enuff?) great audio clips I will cha

I like so many artists, within a range from straight up pop music to heavy metal to some progressive stuff and the occasional quirky artist. I will try to narrow to artists from a particular decade that impacted me at that time: 1960s - born in 1969, so while I later came to appreciate some 60s music, it really didn't impact me as a newborn. 1970s - I probably have to go with Abba or Pau

That's kind of always been Frontiers modus operandi though...in the early 2000s it was every album being produced by Fabrizio V. Zee Grossi. Then it was Dennis Ward producing everything. Then they had Erik Martensson and/or Ale Del Vecchio doing everything. And now Flores. They'll work him as a producer until they find their next favorite producer and then you'll see a new name on every album

Nice review, man! My first KISS was on the Revenge tour. Loved that era! Next time I saw them was on the Psycho Circus tour with Ace and Peter back in the band. Saw them for the third time on the KISS/Def Leppard/Kobra and the Lotus tour a couple of years ago. They have never disappointed me. Seeing Ace Frehley next month here in Denver - going VIP. Figured it would be cool to spend

Geez, the first song I remember hearing? Probably C is For Cookie. My childhood music memories mostly come from what my parents listened to - pop and country music. From before the age of 10, I can remember hearing Let Your Love Flow, Don't It Make My Brown Eyes Blue, Listen to What the Man Said, Dancing Queen, Silly Love Songs, Have You Never Been Mellow, The Gambler, Magic (Olivia Newton
