During my years going to Magnum gigs in the 80s/90s, Stage Dolls were hands down the best support act I saw trailing around with Bob 'n Tony. Great fun live, and I'm sure I had and loved their S/T third album as well. Haven't heard it for decades though.

I don't hate OM, and it's certainly not too metal as my tastes run all the way through to some of the heaviest genres, but it just doesn't grab me like Empire does. I'll give it another listen or two as it's available to stream on Amazon prime.

Silent Lucidity. My interest in QR pretty much starts and ends with Empire, which is a classic album among classic albums. Love every note! The others I've heard - not so much. But of course I haven't heard them all! Which one should an Empire fan find to be next best?

I'm going to have to listen to it a few more times, but after a shaky start it's growing on me. It's the chorus that is taking time to sound like it really fits. Really looking forward to hearing it in the context of the full album, though.

Audio clips available here: https://www.7digital.com/artist/magnum/release/sacred-blood-divine-lies/ It definitely sounds familiar. The pacing is all quite similar, Bob's voice has the same vulnerability that has been evident on recent albums (but is still totally glorious) - yes I can understand some fans being frustrated.... BUT: Even from these short clips I am totally confident that

Well I love ALL eras and styles of Magnum, apart from most of the Rock Art album that either didn't put any wind in my sails (Tall Ships marooned in the doldrums) or made me feel like I was listening to a third rate pub rock band (Tell Tale Eyes marooned on a sticky bar stool). Of course, even that album is 100% essential because it contains On Christmas Day, perhaps the finest song Tony has ever

Pretty straight forward for me: Magnum (current line up is fine, but Lowe/Barker '88ish would be cool) Barclay James Harvest (Original 60s/70s line up) Kansas (Livgren/Elefante would be sweeeeeet) Wishbone Ash (Andy's current line up is awesome) Midnight Oil (I adore this band - wish Garrett was interested in reforming... although just searched - maybe he is? Yes please!) Pat Be

75 minutes each: Magnum Glass Harp (with the mighty Phil Keaggy on guitar) ProtoKaw (with the mighty Kerry Livgren* on guitar) *if Kerry isn't really recovered enough from his stroke of a few years ago to play lead for 75 minutes then ProtoKaw can step aside for: Pat Benatar (with the mighty Neil Giraldo on guitar) :D

Only available used unless you feel like handing over $200 instead of $12, but this is an awesome set: http://www.amazon.com/Synchronistic-Wanderings-Pat-Benatar/dp/B000UFRQCK My favorite PB album is 1988s Wide Awake In Dreamland. In my Top 20 of all time.

What the what? I just don't get it. Certainly nowhere near as bad as some of the stuff he has turned out over the years, but he even sounds bored as he's 'singing' this. There's no Fire in his voice. The only thing he's going Into with this album is retirement.

The example that stands out in my mind has to be Bryan Adams. I don't mind some of his early stuff but certainly don't love it, have never connected with his later stuff at all, but Into The Fire is top 20 all time for me.

I have been in awe of Benatar/Giraldo since 1988's Wide Awake In Dreamland was released. It's lovely to see them get some acclaim here! Apparently they HAVE recently been playing a few deep cuts - including my all time favorite Too Long A Soldier. When I saw them live for my first and as yet only time a couple years ago the set list was very similar to what they are playing recently, and yes the

Love this song. If you're looking for it, it was posted on the front page yesterday but is already at the bottom. Andrew has been busy! Really looking forward to receiving this album in my mailbox.

Well I had mine (vinyl) pre-ordered from Amazon UK but canceled a week or so ago... ...because I found it was finally listed on .com with Prime shipping for cheaper! Mine should arrive tomorrow, which is listed as the release date. Can't wait to hear it as I have not heard the band live since just after rocks were invented.

Hopefully this will make Andrew happy! The redesigned redesigned site is so attractive and functional that I actually scrolled down and watched a few videos. Usually they only last a few seconds before I move on, but both of these new MRR releases lasted for full songs, so I thought I'd better order them! Nice work to everyone involved. It would be nice if they both sell a million copies. :
