No change here today (and any day). This is the one I couldn't live without. It's not perfect, two of the songs are filler, it sounds like it was recorded in a tunnel lined with old jock straps... But the first time I heard Les Morts Dansant, and especially the instant I heard Tony kick in on the guitar half way through Les Morts Dansant, I knew I'd never be able to live without this album.

Alongside The Rolling Stones, the most overrated (highly successful) band ever. However the manufactured hysteria that surrounded them paved the way for many other far more talented bands to make music, and a lot of these gifted folks say that The Beatles were/are a great influence on them. So what do I know? I simply can't listen to their music for more than a few seconds - by which time I

Merry Christmas Al (and the rest of the Magnum band & crew)! I finally heard that my copy of the single arrived at the local record store I ordered it from here in Chicaaaaago! Going to pick it up today!

I've avoided Van Halen like the plague over the years, but have to admit that this (that I've just heard for the first time) is one kickin' song.

Probably SPV's decision. But even if it was the band deciding not to release this on CD as well we should all still love them, 'cos they're Magnum.

Yeah, definitely one of the criminally ignored bands. I'm British American and have lived in the USA for almost 15 years now. Still only come across a handful of people who've ever heard of BJH. Found their XII album in a local record store recently tho... filed under 'H'! :D

OK this thread has me reaching for my vinyl copy of ITF which will hit the deck in a minute or two after Vivaldi's Four Seasons finishes spinning!

Into The Fire is a fantastic expression of my personal taste in music. Nothing else by Bryan Adams has ever come anywhere near to reaching these heights, although I have to admit to being rather fond of Summer Of '69. Classic track, that one! But as far as a full album goes, ITF is the only one I love from start to finish. So, Bryan, buddy - how about you make the new one something like that,

The only Domain album I'm familiar with is Before The Storm. This track sounds close enough to the sound they had on that one. So don't worry, you are not the only one who likes this. :)

She is still kicking it live! Have to go see her again soon. Have to say that Neil Giraldo is a guitar/songwriting legend who definitely does not get enough recognition.

Yeah. Although I have no idea when (if ever) I'll ever be able to see them live again, and any set would do for me, it would definitely be great to read that they went onto stage one night and cranked out the whole of Magnum II & Eleventh Hour! Hehe.

I have a copy of Almost Home at last! Signed ltd edition #82/100, which arrived along with one other part of my 'reward' for backing them on Kickstarter all those long (two) years ago! It is a great album. But, I have no idea when/if the CD goes on general sale. All I can suggest is watch their website (houseofguardian.com) and follow their FB page.

Thunder Schmunder. I really don't get the issue with Americans and Magnum. Blue Bluddy Oyster Cult are still doing their thing. Many over here have a soft spot for Kansas/Styx/REO/Foreigner/Yawny/Boston and other similar bands. Put all those in a pot, mix it round, add a few wild hand gestures and out pops Magnum. Oh well.

GET MAGNUM (no, not the Ice Cream, crappy TV show, car, birth control device or gun) ON US SOIL (within easy reach of Chicago - can't make this TOO easy) AND I WILL PERSONALLY GIVE YOU A BIG KISS. Now there's an offer you can't look away from.
