I agree Rickyboy The Epic album seems to b v high quality and more consistent than much of FMs own stuff. I was disappointed in Tough It OUt - I was expecting so much after the Indiscreet album Like yourself, I havent heard much of Overland's other albums - think he sang for a group called The Ladder?? check it out on Spotify

Recently heard a song called 'Kings' by a duo? called the The Pierces. Thought it was excellent and am checking them out a bit. Have been listening to them on Spotify - check out Kings and Come Alive Bit like Fleetwood Mac meets ABBA Definitely worth hearing. Anyone know much about them?

When I'm driving and listening to the radio I find myself flicking through the channels looking for some decent music. Generally I am not successful, however I recently flicked through some channels to eventually stop at hearing Sultans of Swing by Dire Straits. After that I flicked through a few more channels to discover Hysteria (Def Lep) being played and, amazingly, followed by I Just Died I

Hi DL7 I wouldnt be a fan, but do like some of their stuff - probably need to listen to their albums more to 'get into them'. But i do remember listening to The Division Bell and thought it was a v good album. Soem of their stuff may be too experimental for me. I think at times they sound similar to Barclay James Harvest - BJH were probably not as 'progressive / experimental' - but I wa

I am almost scared to say this, but more and more I feel that it is the lead vocalist who, generally / primarily, makes a band successful. He gives it the character, the feel and the essence. Again - I know this is controversial - but guitarists are 'two a penny'. I know we love the guitar sound and there are some brill riff creators, however any 'good' guitar player can play the classic rif

SLASH - World on FIre Havent heard it all yet, but have being listening to it on Spotify It sounds excellent so far - probably Album of the Year Could be a real gem - its not instant, but you can instantly tell it has depth and not an album u would easily tire of. Hope the songs I havent heard, are not fillers. Anyways - so far so very very good

THINK i would have loved this if I had heard it in the 80s - maybe the formula is a bit tired now. Its good - good balance of AOR and harder rock with a good production - but I dont think it intrigues me enough to want to buy it in a hurry, but it does intrigue me to listen further. at best - a bit like Bon Jovi (SLIPERRY WHEN WET era) meets Def Leppard. at worst - dull, 'heard it all befo

Well I sort of agree - I grew up with Kerrang reviews in the 80s and they were fair but compact. I love Andrew's in depth song by song anaysis - it is almost the perfect type / format of a review. And yet the wait is sometimes TOO LONG. i waited a long time for DEF LEP to release Hysteria - it was worth the wait and if all their following albums and taken as long and produced such quali

LA - 747 yes good album - makes me want to listen to it again - 8.5 out of 10 - no fillers - v consistent album still think I prefer Kacey Musgrave's Album (SAME TRAILER DIFFERENT PARK) - it gets 9/10 - its not as commercial or slick as 747 - anyway these are both great 'country?' albums. that's two snapshot reviews in one PS i have only listened to 747 twice (my opinion may change a

Thanks TerryK Agreed they are a great group - I love the single 'I Need You Now' - Glad to hear you enjoy them too - I'll maybe get that new album Also, on the subject of COUNTRY music - KACEY MUSGRAVES album 'SAME TRAILER DIFFERENT PARK' is a real cracker - great music and thoughtful lyrics - give it a listen - especially Silver Lining, DAndelion, IT Is What It Is and Follow Your Arrow -

or the new Vega Album Sounds ok - i do sense the Def Leppard influence - the lead vocal reminds me of Bruce Dickinson a bit - i definitely want to hear more from Vega and think this is strong and consistent album with variety (slow / fast stuff) - nice balance between rock and rock / pop & between guitars and keyboards DRAFT SCORE - 85%

Earth Calling Andrew????? agreed - I'm missing the reviews. even, initially, at least give us two sentences summarising the album and a % score - call it a 'DRAFT REVIEW' or 'INITIAL REVIEW' - score may change when it comes to full review. FOR EXAMPLE 'what i've heard of the new ALLEN LANDE album is quite good - cliched / poor lyrics and perhaps it all gave me a sense of 'heard it all

Have to agree with Rockdog, G3LesPaul, CapCAnMan adn DEFlEp7 a few songs on each of their albums are most enjoyable However they are v talented, adventurous and progressive and if I gave them the time I would probably appreciate them much more - I did try to listen to Isolation one night on YouTube, but sort of gave up - it just didnt seem to grab me. I'll maybe try again. i remember listen

When I bought CITG, I thought it was an earlier (lessser known) album than EOTT - I hadnt heard any of the CITG songs before purchasing. Yet I really loved it and always thought it was a total classic album - easily as good as EOTT. THought 'When Seconds Count' was a disappointment - more pop than rock.

Have thought about this further and it may depend on when you started to like (or listen to Bon Jovi) - at high school my friend, Peter, and I thought we would take a chance on their first album - based only on the look (rockers / long hairs etc) and the song titles, as advertised in the Brittania Music Club mag. We both loved the album and were delighted to see BJ then getting discovered by the
