Thanks Richard for the feedback. We are really pleased with the new songs, both got an airing at HRH AOR 2 & a new album is in the works (hopefully with a release later this year). For the curious, the 2 new tracks are available at the following places for download https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/a-love-affair-single/id840250541 http://www.amazon.co.uk/Love-Affair-Dante-Fox/dp/B0

ESTWB at the End of Lock Up is Jimi doing the Classic Survivor track & I think it was a single around 1989/90. The film also features "Vehicle" from Jim Peterik's Ides of March. Whilst I think most of the soundtracks to his 80's films were a product of their time, most soundtracks feature some great artists & Naturally, Survivor/Peterik/Jamison feature in 3 of his movies (Roc

I've battled with Hodgkin's twice in my life (10 years apart) & having been there wish him the very best. The Cure rate is a positive sign, the treatment however is gruelling both on the body & mind. His positivity will be what pulls him through & a sheer dose of good fortune.

Tommy...Chord progressions have been exhausted over the test of time granted....but does this mean all new songwriting efforts should steer well clear of what's considered "sellable" or indeed "commercial" in favour of artistic liscence & banging out a set of awkward, disjointed efforts in the name of originality? Good songs WILL shine through but because we/you arrived

Jeff's an absolutely wonderful singer but seriously not a good fit for the band. It depends on what they're after but other than his incredible vocals, he just wouldn't be right in both age & image methinks. I could however be wrong.

It was and is a struggle. I barely like Hip today...merely for the superb drum fill at the intro. Bar that...there ain't much else to like. A shame indeed and a band really confused as to where to go following the grunge explosion.

Slang is the most hideous track on an otherwise stellar album of great songs. One of my faves being the Vivian penned Work it out.

Again...the mid section on peacemaker die is utterly superb. Despite the voiceover, the backing music is sublime. It's an odd album for sure and the kind of album the the term "grower" was designed for. So many good tracks that aren't your typical single worthy effort. Peacemaker Die, Colour me Blind, Politicalamity, and as mentioned, the third side, The Truth 3 tracks (everything un

On of my favourite albums... The truth, last 3 tracks are utterly stunning. I do think however following on from pornografitti...they showed their intelligence a little too early, put a lot of people off. A shame for sure as I feel it's by far one of the most underrated albums ever released.

I guess it all depends on what era you grew up in & what attracted you to the band. For me...I love late 80's/early 90's Aerosmith...much like I do Def Leppard etc... but they forced their way into my eardrums post 1990 so... Rocks is superb tho' granted & the first of the bands peaks so to speak. PUMP being another for me. Just an opinion tho'

I think it's a great album to be honest...it's only downside is it's slghtly soiled production. Typically modern sounding mushymized to the max. Never more evident than when listening to the recent "Greatest hits" Cd that has "born to follow" pitted alongside some of their best work both in production & songwriting. Sounds practically dull & limp by comparison. I do fe

Whilst I'm pretty sure The Lepps are all "mates for life".... Jovi on the other hand seem more like a business proposition these days. I do however feel that when some bands survive long enough to hit that Nostalgic longevity reward...the business side takes pressident over friendships.

Def Leppard from 92 onwards (17 at the time). Heard Adrenalize, discovered Hysteria then Pyromania in that order. My interests in Rock music kinda formed from there on in. I was however into Bon Jovi's Slippery' when 12 Y/O & was always a Survivor & American AOR(ish) fan from Movie soundtracks (Mostly Rocky films & what not).

I gotta admit...being a long time fan...those aren't bad re-records at all BUT I feel there are parts of original vocal in there & ROA sounds like it's been flown in less than half a line at a time with some rather dodgy autotune going on. Some lines are identical in both tone & phrasing not to have been doctored somewhat. Curious... Maybe I'm hearing something that isn't there...du

PUMP for me although I dig Get a grip too. PUMP actually made me aware of Aerosmith which I sought out after seeing the 'smiths do Dream On live for MTV's 10th anniversary (featured on the Last Action Hero soundtrack). I struggle to go backwards with Bands, always have. Pump / Get a Grip / 9 Lives were all pretty consistent for me in one way or other. Just Push Play however found me reaching f

Indeed...their last few efforts have been a lot rawer (sp?) & organic (ish) but the Leppard of old used to have huge bombastic drums (albeit synthetic). All their albums from SLANG onwards have for me lost their edge a little due to a weaker & lower volumed Kit. The guitars are way up there these days which I'd never complain about but at the risk of drowning out eveything else....colo

I dig Leppard...always have but I seriously doubt they'd improve on what's been done before let alone equal them. Joe's voice can't quite cut it studio or not.

I never actually got round to purchasing that one myself. Loved Pornograffitti & 3 sides' although a mixed bag, the last 3 tracks (The Truth) are breathtaking. 'Punchline however turned me off somewhat. How does it rank with the back catalogue?
