How cool! Did they happen to mention the notion of ever recording again? Revolve was a pretty cool slab of edgy melrock. Love to hear new material from them.. T

It's weird how different ears work. I caught the brilliance of ATN immediately. The FS isn't immediate for me,but could win me over. not giving up on it. But I don't think I'd ever rate it near ATN,even tho it's the same genre of melrock. Still a good suggestion and I can see folks here diggin' it. Rock on, Mr. Don! :-) T

Too rich for my blood being I'm so on the fence. Don't like paying that for ANY cd,but will do so in extreme cases. This ain't one...yet. We'll see... T PS: NP- John Fogerty-The Long Road Home (live). Frabtastic!!

Santana in the early days was more about long fusion based material than conciseness of tunes. They had their huge fanbase,but I never dug ANY band stretching out their material live-- zzzzzz. T

You know--it's funny. AC has always had this sort of rough/gruff vocal delivery but also a smoother tone that he can turn on & off whenever he chooses-even during the same song. VN has a higher register AND a raspiness as well. But it seems apparent that he hasn't been able to keep his vocal chords in shape anywhere ear as well as Cooper. You never hear ANYone saying..man,AC sounded terrible

Bought the debut when it came out from the radio 'single' that was played. The material all seemed to gel into itslf- not much variety,but if you can dig that element,then it's quality enough. I need more diversity,so I guess I always thought of them as great potential but not quite getting there. Compared to Journey which was the same genre..well-- no comparison song per song. Pretty cool to see

Love the track,but I haven't listened to this either. Asia has always had a bag of tricks to enhance their live shows. They need to,but I wouldn't expect them to ever sound dire. maybe the recorded vuid doesn't transpose well.. T

Not to rain on the parade,but I may need to give this alittle more of a chance. It was decent & all-what I heard. Didn't bowl me over tho. Sounded a bit too much on the 80's MOR train to my tastes. For example-- H.E.At.'s Address The Nation sems far beter for this ilk. i get what youze guize are liking here,but I'm not sure it'll grab me quite the same. T

Debatable about Elliott,IMO. he doesn't have quite the range anymore (who does--not many),but he sounds pretty damn close to how he's always sounded. The guy never HAD some great sounding tone now,did he? he was always a hard rock singer with that raspy edge (Robert Plant,anyone?). Same as Jeff Keith--still sound pretty much tonally like always. sometimes I think we tend to hold earlier material

I've become aware of a few 'old/missed out on' albums from yesteryear by way of one of my former bass players who loves all that old underground stuff. He's tried mostly in vain-to turn me onto stuff like Spirit,Baker Gurvitz Army,Guess Who (I have their greatest hits), and lots of other stuff I've never even heard of. Some of it is ok to decent,but nothing that trips my trigger enough to go craz

hey Don..just an fyi-- listened just this AM to a couple old Doobie Bros. cds--Tolouse Street and Vices... Might be going to see them on Monday at the NYS Fair. great stuff! also listened to Beginnings by The allman Bros. and their great return cd-Seven Turns. love that one! so not always newer stuff-just most times. :-) T

No harm in him being out there with his own 'Styx show',I suppose. But-- it saturates the market somewhat and--divides the fans to a degree. But..it is what it is. Not the first band to have two different entities out there. and I'm sure it's a fine show. I'd cringe during any of Tommy's songs,and there are 3-4 at least that he's doing that I can't be bothered with (Kilroy,couple ballads). the 'm

Surely intentional all the way. he's making a huge stab at getting back some rights to the Styx catalog--as well he can and should. but I see he also pays the band back now by playing/recording live some tunes that Tommy Shaw wrote. Is the lookalike dude singing those tracks on stage as well? wouldn't even surprise me. It's the 'two Queensryche/Great White,etcetc' syndrome. T PS: maybe Gowan

I more recently discovered how good a singer Pat is. When I watched some live stuff-espescially their unplugged/from the living room show, I was surprised at how well he can sing. Those guys are the real deal all the way around! I'll def try to see them live again if they come around. From what I've read-- Pat will be on the tour playing a few songs. and I'd guess he might add vocal parts here &a

They've used canned background vox since the very beginning,I'd bet. they don't have the vocalists to recreate all the lush choral parts o their records,which is created by lots of overdubs in the first place. i've seen them live and their were partsthat made me cringe as I knew they were'nt playing/singing the parts. Lots of keyboard parts that downes has preprogrammed a well. T

Bands like Motley,Kiss,Poison,etc. are/were always more about the show/spectacle than their musical credentials. It's the 'whole package' thang that's the enjoyed element--if you dig them. I like some songs by these three acts,but was never any huge fan. As someone mentioned--why any surprise over MC's demise? In contrast--Alice Cooper was always about the show too. But he's got the talent/class

Hey--it's the tour of the Two Vinces! ;-) T PS: AC is a class act-always has been. MC never had any class to begin with. No surprise they didn't/couldn't age gracefully.

It's really tough to actually rank them,Don. alot of great bands there,so how to rate even how often you still spin any of them. I'd put Zep at the top too,just for their influence-tho I also love the snot out of them. BUT-- I don't spend much listening time with ANY of these acts anymore. Gotta keep up with what I buy that's fresh/new in my collection,as it hasn't had enough time to sink in. The

You're right on,Don. Alot of the Brit bands were much more popular there and other places than here in the US. UFO and Thin Lizzy,e.g.-were only marginally successful here. They were usually opening slotbands on most tours,hoping to crack it big like their headlining counterparts. Not saying they didn't have a fan bae,but it just wasn't all that huge by comparison. And keep in mind-- headlining a

Ueah-- I get that,Brent. but I've listened to the old stuff lOTS over the years and have spent time with it absorbing it all. The newer stuff hasn't gotten that luxury (being newer),so when I have the time, I'm more likely going for my latest additions. T

I decided on the day to go to the show on Tuesday. They were great as usual--did the 2 Damn Yankees tunes (Coming Of Age & High Enough) along with part ofCrazy Train in honor of Gillis's tenure with Ozzy. These guys are the consumate live act-- great playing/execution/delivery all wrapped up in great songs playing and vocals. Blades is similar to REO's Cronin in that he knows how to engage th
