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

My recommendation: One of the best live albums I've ever heard. Thanks SPV for supporting this format and of course MAGNUM!!

As they are both $4.99 with free Prime shipping from Amazon they landed on my desk this afternoon and I'll give them a spin soon.

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

Beatles Stones T-Rex and most 'Glam' rock ...as someone else with great insight said - any band with a 'Z' replacing an 'S' in its name! But the first two are the biggies. Simply do NOT get the appeal of either. Can't deny the influence, but by their musical (writing/arranging/performance) abilities alone I simply. don't. get. it. There are few more boring/inane experiences in life than lis

I was 18 in 1990. An 'adult'. And perhaps that's appropriate as with Goodnight LA it seemed that Magnum had been told to grow up and act like a normal good little rock band. Here - you need some help to know how to do this thing you've been doing since 1972 (when they formed, even though their debut album didn't appear until '78). Tony, please be a good little boy and work with these 'successful'

My least favorite Magnum album, with only the second Hard Rain effort propping it up! Still, it contains a few great songs... and then On Christmas Day - perhaps Tony's best ever. So it's not as if I don't like it!
