The Magnificent were okay, didn't cohere like a band that had played often, just like WET in 2011. Eden's Curse workaday material wasn't helped by the worst mix I've heard in years. Work Of Art had the best songs of the day and cry out for a run of gigs to really start developing their live chops. Lars Safsund is an amazing vocalist. WET were fine performers but the sound quality was d

The debut grew on me enormously over week until it became a staple in my family's CD carousel. I heard the whole of Rise Up on the speakers before the WET gig in stockholm last month, and several tracks knocked my socks off, while a couple didn't. Live, it must be said, almost every track old and new were transformed into near-metal emotional facemelters. I was hanging in the club wi

The debut underwhelmed meat first, but it became resident on my house's playlist because my son loved it and it grew on me to the point where I think its one of my albums of the noughties. The punctuation of lovely pop melodies with genuinely spicy deep guitar work works brilliantly even if some of the lyrics are teenage girl poetry. The Rise Up tracks sounded great live last night , and also

I volunteer as a marriage coach, helping folks respond to spouses affairs, and helping couples make great marriages. It happen soften that cheating couples draw attention to their relationship because they crave legitimacy of their affair. Same way that many parents in affairs try to get their affair partners involved in their kids lives ASAP. Affair relationships rarely last, in fact they

Loved Chickenfoot at Brixton. I think Satch makes everybody raise their game, and the uncomplicated song format forces HIM to raise his game too. Sammy's vox were as strong as I heard in many years. Greta gig. Apart from upstairs at Brixton is rubbish. No atmosphere and view obscured by giant spotlights occupying front circle seats.

The sound and ambiance of Zep or Free. Not one tenth of the tunes though. I can't hum a single RS track despite having their free CD from Classic Rock magazine. IMO of course.

I saw the Darkness at Brum last Friday. They were not a comedy act that played rock music, like Bad News: they kicked as hard as any band I've seen for a long time. New tracks ace too: the UFO-styled "Cannoball" best of all. Melody, power and swing in their best songs completely missing from some popular new bands like Black Stone Cherry IMO. Yes there's a sense of fun and tongue

Took my son , and i didn't really know any of their songs. Very talented but I can't today hum a single one of their sings. Metalingus' chorus perhaps ? And the constant bleak themes made me year for the Darkness from the previous Friday. I don't think they projected well in a giant shed like the LGA. At the Academy, or Rock City no doubts they would have been great. A definite "

I have my 20 year old hi-fi separates which still provide quite brilliant sound quality. Nobody seems to want these any more and they show up on Ebay regularly for pennies. The kind of "music centre" you seem to be looking for have always provided pretty poor music reproduction, but again I'd suggest your best bet is Ebay for a mint one from the days of vinyl. My turntable is

Just listening to this on Spotify. The word that springs to mind is " derivative". It lacks the attitude that makes, say, WET's album truly magnificent. Its not the lyrical themes that are cheesy, but the sixth form band lyrics IMO. They might have a great 55 minute set at firefest in them someday but not gonna be a fave of mine. I guess my brain just needs slightly more g

Took me a while to warm to Vega; Nicks pronunciation at lower pitch and volume is different. However listening to " kiss of life " AFTER their arse kicking set at FF and I could give a monkeys about accents. His voice is so unstrained at high power he could be one of the English greats IMO.

Sammy's still plugging his autobiography I guess. I was a Hagar fan before VH, as I had Montrose and Paper Money before heard VH-1. Heard Loud and Clear the other day a fine live album.

I saw Airrace supporting Winger at JBs a couple of years ago and they were pretty good. Was knocked out by Furyon that night though. I like Vega, and loved them at FF. I might go anyway. A tenner is barely a round at my local, great value for two fine bands.

I always feel bad criticizing bands at FF because I love that they turn up to play, and play their hearts out. Also theres always PLENTY of fans who do love every band. I went primarily for WET and was not disappointed. I was also sorely impressed with vega, who added youth and a new take on melodic rock structure. very good indeed.
