Great to see C Tomlin and Third Day getting mentioned here Chris's latest album - Burning Lights is so good Have you heard Come Home Running from his 'Not to Us' album - it lifts the heart of the guilty, the progigal, the vilest sinner - so full of hope for us when we fail and get it wrong (and we really do).

Hi Darren Thks me thinks you might like Uriah Heap a bit I'd prefer anything by Dare - give them a listen - think you would like them a bit too, Do you remember when 'Out of The Silence ' was released - Kerrang gave it a great review - 'said it was like Asia meets Barclay James Harvest' Saw you when you supported Europe - Belfast about 88/89. super

I'm Interested in finding your ultimate favourite songs ever - I mean those songs that really sent shivers down your spine, made you weep uncontrollably & made the hairs stand on the back of your neck. Songs that captured a meaningful moments in your life and bring back memories, both good and bad. Probably the songs you recorded on a cassette in the 80s to give to the girl you fancied. T

sorry Doug - I may have misunderstood your point. think you were taking my side, by pointing out to me that my type of criticism would be generally unacceptable in this forum. u may be right, some people cant take criticism of their fave band you can ignore my 'where are you from' comment - have had a rough night

YOUR so right the video is almost irrelevant - its about the music, not the visual aspect a bit like Journey's Separate Way - the video is really irrelevant - the song is pure class so J Wetton can just keep his hands in his pockets - as long as he nails the songs - and he does with Valkyrie

Jeff Lynne once commented (in respopnse to people reading into his lyrics far more than was ever intended) that his lyrics were generally as simple as getting 'moon' to rhyme with 'June'. And it seemed to work well for Lynne and ELO. So - Many AOR and rock bands may have cheesey lyrics but it shouldnt be a major distraction if the song is good (melodic, structured, well produced, good vocal

Thanks for your comments Figge It really is a 'grower' type of album and not an 'instant'. However the more I listen to it the more its intricasies fascinated me - you are right about some of the v cool instrumental bits - guitars talking to each other. I dont know much about Wishbone Ash - but can see how it was a forerunner for the twin guitar approach of some of the great bands like Mai

Thanks Alaskaman Its a better song than I was expecting after hearing all the negative comments about it. Agreed, Wetton seems a bit lethargic on the video - maybe he got too much sun on that beach. And whats with those hands in the pockets? - he makes Bob Catley look uber-hyper.

It was Def Leppard on the Hysteria Tour (Uk) - Hysteria had just been released and Leppard had booked smallish venus in Uk. The tour started off in Dublin and then two nights in Belfast - I saw the Dublin Show. My best mate went to the Dublin one and both Belfast shows (in Ulster Hall) - Joe E hurt his back at one of the Belfast gigs. Tesla were super then - so enegetic - gave DL a run for t

so true - there's something about the first album you listen too. The first ELO album I heard was TIME - it hooked me too them, but it is always the album I prefer most. Likewise with Pretty Maids and their Future World album

was just listening to a few 80s rock albums - some great stuff, but Tesla's Mechanical Resonance just so stood out from the rest - timeless classic. In case anyone hasnt heard it - treat yourself - sort of ACDC meets Led Zep meets Def Leppard meets Van Halen Other recent discovery (bought this in a charity shop) - 1972 album called Argus by Wishbone Ash - apparently this album was a big in

good point Big Al - more attention to detail required! the original video was crap, even in the 80s - such a pity for one of the best AOR songs ever. As its comedy time: John Lennon was once asked if Ringo Starr was the best drummer in the world. He replied that Ringo wasnt even the best drummer in The Beatles

Maybe they try too hard with some of their recordings - the epic song(s) could have more sparse arrangements allowing time for each instrument to create the 'feel'

yes - why dont they do something epic like Ryme of the Ancient Mariner (IM) or Dont Wake the Lion (Magnum) or Telegraph Road (Dire Straits) - could be amazing - use atmosphere like in Dont Leave ME Now by Supertramp think I'll nip down to Joe's house in Dublin and tell them now

just hope they dont rush it - rather have them take the time and give us quality I dont really want the reviews to state 'they have captured a 'live' sound' with this album Pyromania wasnt rushed Sometimes Mutt just gave sthe songs that other dimension, which i feel has be lacking lately. Dont necessarily hire Mutt again - but use some clever keyboards and deliver a good variety of so

Yip Tommy I think most people on this forum have broad musical taste, but do favour AOR / Rock. A good tune is a good tune no matter what the Genre and the problem is partly that 90% of the medicore AOR and 'in your face' rock bands (Mot Crue, Poison) give the AOR / Rock Genre a bad name - see the BBC programme recently on 80s American Rock - they focused on the trash and made Nirvana look li

'they like songs here and there' that is so true - the young ones I talk to about music dont know who they are listening to - they just have the song on their system (ipod or whatever) and enjoy it but dont seem to know anything about the song. Well thats fine - no problem - good to just enjoy when i enyoy a song I want to know what else that artist has released - I want to know if a who

Terry thanks for the link - it really does sound good - sometimes so many of these 'promo' things sound like 'i've heard it before' and I dont listen to the whole thing. I certainly listened to this one. u r right - this one should be a great album thks rgs Bmg

Before internet, especially You Yube and Melodic Rock - in the 80s actually - Myself and friend would have bought unknown albums in Record Shops!!! based only on the image of the band (long hair), cover artwork, song titles and band set-up (twin lead guitars was always a big plus). Sometimes the long haired guy in the record shop would have given good advice. THrough this method we 'discovered'

MC - 'they gave Rock a Bad name' 2nd rate rock band - big on image small on substance. They were more of a sleazy, brash, party band who would grab attention for their drama and antics, rather than quality music. I probably bought about every HR album available in the late 80's but never thought MC were worth spending the money on - admittedly they were better than Poison (I, emabarass
