I may seek that one out at the library system. I'm thinking I've seen it there. Thanks for the reminder.. T

Clue in....when you see a singer constantly grabbing for water/libation,he's having a rough night. Trying to keep the pipes lubricated as much as possible so as to get through the night. It happens to 'em all. T

They've had outside help in songwriting for many years. Their friend Sue Ennis,for example. But I think back in the eary days,the band had input in the writing-including Roger Fisher,who left/was ousted after Dog & Butterfly. Thinkgs started unraveling even then for them. BeBe Le Strange was decent enough (Even It Up helped keep them on a level plane). But Private Audition was pretty abysmal.

For me-- the S/T album was ok--Nevison ruined the mix with his 'bassless approach' tho. Didn't care much for BA-3-4 tracks maybe max there. Love most of Brigade save maybe a couple tracks. Also really dug Desire Walks On as well. Thought that a nice mix between their 70's and 80's material. Wish they'd have stayed that course. Their newer output is boring drivel to me. T

You'd always feel cheated at a VH show if you expected to hear any actual singing from Ol' Dave. ;-) T

Well... I did scope out samples at Amazon. Not my cuppa at all. Pass.. T PS: Oh,wait...I'll pay for the full cd and find that I really love it! Or not. ;-)

Guess it's ok for me to comment as I heard two FULL tracks. ;-) I sorta dig them,and personally I'm enjoying the singer's voice. There's a real heartfelt approach to it,and his tone IS very 80's as well as the band. One to watch. Showcase maybe,Andrew? T

You had me with that statement,DD. Gotta scope it now! LOL T PS: really- the more diverse tag and 'less bitchy' vibe is what I'm hearing that entices me.

From your post tts-- I may need to give this one a try. Didn't dig the modern heavy elements overall of that last cd. This might be more up my alley for them. Same way I feel/felt about Nickelback,by the sounds.. T

Not really a fan,but I saw her on TMS and they didn't seem to talk much about direction with it. Just how it was made real 'live in the room' type stuff. Guess nobody wanted to bash a guest about their newest creation. Politics and all that.. T

First half better for me,too. Abd you are spot on about folk's preferences about sound. This cd hands down IS overly compressed with that 'bass boost' button sound and I hate that element. Try listening to IV or the debut if you want to really hear the difference. Now THAT'S clearity and still some punch-nice natural (and analog I'm sure) way of recording. All this compression creates is a phony

Those are Journey tunes? Huh. Loved his voice with Saga. Too bad that didn't continue. Not being a fan of Sadler (of course). T

LOL Yeah-- I almost feel guilty not diggin' XIV as much as some here. Trust me-- I want to love it to death and beyond. Maybe that'll change-just don't think so. But at present I do like it and it's great they went in and recorded another album of tunes. Guess my point being that my view hasn't changed from point A: what I heard/thought from online cources..to point B: my view upon hearing it a

I'm not going to bother going back to check them all.tbob...but I most times SAY that I've been going by samples UNTIL I get any cd. But I already KNOW I prefer the early stuff with BK. So it matters not what they do with Williams as far as how it ranks-that's a moot point. and--now that I've OFFICIALLY listened to it 4-5 times...my opinion stands. It's solid enough for them. Will it continue to

Just to chime in on the Toto-- on my fourth listen. Ummmm..it's very good. But I've got lots of stuff from this year that I dig more. And more on the way- FM,Night Flight Orchestra,Darkness,House Of Lords etc could also top it. Still--good solid effort and I suppose I strong follow-up to The Seventh One (not IV tho. Sorry.) T

Again Bob.... If you can't glean enough info from 1.5 minute samples to decide the essence of rock (not prog) songs to decide whether or not you dig them,then that's yours (ands anyone else's) issue. Youshould get a good enough scope from those that Andrew provides. Now- Amazon's 30 seconds? Another story-but...I have bought from those as well. And..I DID hear the first 3 tracks from XIV in full

Fogot about this. There were quite a few folks over at House Of Guitars when I picked up the Toto cd. Had to stand in line for a few minutes to check out. Not used to that anymore. Cool.. T

Well...finally on my way to pick up Toto XIV. They had it on back order at my one 'go-to' store here. Looking forward to hearing it in full,and I'm sure I'll get the full on buzz from it that everyone has been crowing about. The first and last tracks sound the most interesting from the clips I've heard. Can't really get most full tracks at y-tube these days. I got a new pc and I'm getting error m

Glad I got to scope out the Heroes & Villains showcase that one time. I may be waiting a bit to score a copy here in the US (hopefully only a week or so--Frontiers US release, I believe). Any particular reason why it came & went that fast? Curious.. T

All I can say is-- I agree with the element of dismay upon hearing that the songs were written by Del Vecchio. I'm normally not a fan of the typical projects that get churned out by him and Frontiers. They DO most times sound sub-par to these ears. Like grade b/c Journey/Survivor records. So yeah-- I was very reserved about the RS saints cd overall. BUT- upon hearing the entire disc,and after 3-5
