I just finally put 15 (yup) up on my wall. Got a great deal on the frames around $40 delivered for the lot of them. Not really going for framing something just because the cover is ideal for that, I just want some of my favorites on the wall - great memories and they are all gifts that keep on giving!

Any chance of posting (or emailing to my username at yahoo dot com) the entire set list? Stuck here in the US and haven't seen Magnum live since the 90s, and I like to create a playlist each time they tour so at least can sing along every night!

Yeah the earlier two have some great songs but a lot of filler. I guess I like them both overall, but overall they are merely average lite guitar rock whereas Into the Fire is a melodic rock/aor masterpiece. I was

Bryan Adams -- Into the Fire Some of his earlier stuff is pretty OK, a few classic songs and a lot of filler. Nothing after ITF did anything for me, but that one album is more than worth the few hours I've wasted trying to find anything else by him that's anything like as good.

I'm one of quite a few fans who love pretty much everything this band have ever released. Even on their for me weakest album (Rock Art) there resides an absolute classic (On Christmas Day) and a couple other excellent songs. I even love many of the tracks on the first reunion album Breath of Life. Some of the albums over the last 14 years have been a little plodding for sure, and I'm in a minorit

I currently drive a Kia Rondo & a Toyota Solara. When I were a lad growing up like in Northern England my dream car was a BMW M635csi: Drool My first car, however, was a light green 1987 Fiat Panda. BUT: For a year or two recently I owned and drove not very sensibly one of these beautiful machines: Turbo/AWD/Manual trans, a few minor mods. Not blindingly fast by modern spo

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

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.
