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.

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'

machinehead Wrote: ------------------------------------------------------- > Rock Art is definitely a hidden gem, way > underrated imo. 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!

It's really quite rare for me to click on a song here at MR.com and hear something that sounds really good to me. Well the songs on the front page by this new band are definitely two of those rare moments! Not saying they are out of this world, but a huge step above almost anything else I've clicked on for a long long time. Melody, power, emotion, excellent vocals, all round quality musicianship

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.

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
