Every studio album I've tried to listen to by Journey. I can manage a song or two here and there, but put them together on an album and it's like listening to paint dry.

I was at the NMB gig in St Charles, IL recently and yeah those guys are nuts. My favorite Morse album is still ?, followed by Momentum and TGE. One of the very few artists I will repeatedly go see live.

Um.... I think it was...... :D Cliff Richard -- Always Guaranteed That was '87 I think. And for the next year I don't remember what music I bought apart from some compilations (Now That's What I Call Music type of thing). To redeem (see what I did there?) myself, among my earliest purchases were Live Magic and A Kind of Magic by Queen, In the Army Now by Quo, and then in late '88 a wh

Special Edition is still $9.99 with free Prime shipping (for members) at Shazamazon. My copy arrived on release day. First play wasn't over impressed, but listened to it quite a few times and certainly a grower. Still nothing to compare with Livgren at his best, which for me is tracks like Hopelessly Human. Wow could/can that man write a tune! Hope another ProtoKaw album appears one of these year

Magnum: Their entire pre-split discography excluding Rock Art is outstanding, as is their entire post-split discography! Tony Clarkin? That's SIR Tony Clarkin to us mortals. Four in a row? Moonking thru Shadow Garden Kansas: Pretty much all outstanding as well, apart from Always Never the Same. They phoned that one in during their sleep on a bad day. Four in a row? Masque thru Monolith. Mid

Splendid song. Loved DCE, not SIN so much, heard nothing since. I think the combination of power and delicacy is done just right. The guitar work is gorgeous all the way through. Just like me :)

My favorite songs are pretty fluid, however the following list of ten are songs (limited to one per artist) that have stuck with me since the first listen: Magnum -- Les Morts Dansant Barclay James Harvest -- The Poet/After the Day Kansas -- Hopelessly Human Midnight Oil -- Concrete Dire Straits -- Telegraph Road Queen -- Hammer to Fall Phil Keaggy -- Maker of the Universe Runrig -- Hea

ELO have never really been on my radar - not quite sure why. Certainly nothing I've heard from them has grabbed me in any meaningful way. Where should I start?

I'm just a whippersnapper at a mere 44 years old so it'll be over half a decade before I can do this... However I'll see what I think of your list: (A 'no' means the band wouldn't be in my Top 50, a 'huh' means I am not familiar with that band's music at all, and a 'wth' means I don't like that band's music and can't understand why they are on your list) 1...STYX -- no 2...DARE -- yes 3...GI

Probably Kansas, because then I would also get Kerry Livgren's solo stuff and the magnificent Proto-Kaw albums. Apart from that, if it was limited to one band without side projects and solo stuff, it would have to be... Magnum, or Barclay James Harvest, or Midnight Oil... Magnum win! Still producing fantastic new albums, playing LIVE live shows (never, ever any trickery), and with a back

Cheers! I knew there was a rehashed version of Restoration coming out, but didn't know about the new album! I have duly ordered both via KS.

Meh - very safe sounding Kansas song. Nice enough, and fine performances all round, but hardly up to the Livgren standard of writing. Having said that, I will definitely be pre-ordering the album and expect to enjoy it. Kansas even at a 'meh' level are light years ahead of most stuff around today.

1. Point of Know Return 2. Leftoverture 3. Monolith (If I was feeling brave I would put this at #1) 4. In the Spirit of Things 5. Freaks of Nature (Probably their most underrated album) 6. Masque 7. Song For America 8. Kansas 9. Power 10. Somewhere to Elsewhere (Livgren rates this in his top 3, but it's almost totally lacking the Kansas 'spark') 11. Vinyl Confessions 12. Drastic Measur
