I always think of 'Never Walk Away' as 'Don't be quite as good to yourself' ...

Neal Morse mentions in his interview with Mitch LaFon that the record label had him submitting songwriting demos for the new Kansas album, with vocals by Ted Leonard (Spock's Beard, Enchant). Apparently, it's going to be one of his Inner Circle Fan Club only releases as none of the songs were picked.

Bad English, without a doubt. Yes, there's some songs I could live without (Lay Down, Rockin' Horse, and Ready When You Are) but the rest is pure gold, especially Tough Times Don't Last and The Restless Ones. Alias - two or three tracks stood out for me, but the rest I found pretty forgettable. No doubt immaculately produced and great performances, but to me the songwriting wasn't in the same

Fantastic album. It'll take more listens before it's up there with English Electric (Full Power) but there are some moments of sublime beauty on there. 'Brooklands' is my favourite, very much in the vein of 'East Coaster Racer'. Anyone who likes melodic, pastoral prog (think Genesis with added lashings of folk) should check it out. They've really taken their place as one of the leading lights

I gave 'Hourglass' a spin today - still absolutely love it! Monster of an album, and the addition of Jorn Lande (not to mention Don Airey's keyboards on a couple of tracks and Dag Stokke on the others) really lifted the band to a whole new level of class. I know Ralph Santolla last appeared on a Rage of Angels album a few years ago, but with everyone clamoring for Jorn to return to a more mel

Hope the new album is a roaring success, Ted! EPK is brilliant! I loved Revolve as well. Bloody great album all round. Are their any plans to record another D2 album at some point, or would you guys want to wait until The Defiants has had time to get established first?

Appalling. Survivor were always my favourite AOR band. Dave's better off out of it. Frankie has driven the band into the ground. It's telling that Jim Peterik, Dave, and Marc are all still friends (they've played at his World Stage shows) and so was Jimi when he was alive. Cameron's a good singer, no doubt about that, but it isn't Survivor any more (and hasn't been IMO since Peterik left)

Check out the newsfeed for the details and EPK. Sounds pretty damn great to my ears. Love the Martin Bros' songwriting and while he seems to be on everything nowadays, there's no quibbling with Alessandro's production chops. High quality stuff all round. Also very cool that Ted went out to record the vocals in Italy rather than sending files. :-)

Tasty! Have to admit, I was a little disappointed with Diamond From the Firepit when I first got it (felt like the band wasn't quite firing on all six) but I gave it a couple of spins last week and appreciated it a lot more. To be fair, it had a lot to live up to compared to the first two albums. I too hope it's a whole new album. They sound more rejuvenated on this new track, and it's got

I'm not that familiar with the first couple of albums beyond the hits, but I have to say "I Don't Want To Live Without You" must be one of my least favourite Foreigner songs from the rest of their catalogue. Just don't get that one at all. Especially when they've got tracks like "Say You Will", "Tooth & Nail", "A Night to Remember", "Until the End

Ask the Lonely may be my favourite Journey song of all! Hugely underrated - so glad that it got the recognition it deserved by being included on Greatest Hits 1 and played regularly live.

Good call! Love that song - it screams 'Everon' (who were one of my favourite prog-ish bands ever). The other half is buying me the full album for Christmas so I'm looking forward to hearing the rest of it. I always wonder why Frontiers don't go to Oliver Phillips to produce some of their acts? I know he's doing a lot of film and TV orchestrations nowadays but he'd do a fantastic job, especia

If they're going to consider a new lead singer, it'd be good to go with a 'name'. Some singers considered for the spot previously include Kevin Chalfant, Mark Free, and Brett Walker. I can't see that happening (obviously not with Brett, RIP) but it's interesting to think about what they might have sounded like. I always thought it would've been interesting to hear them with Fergie Frederiksen

Check the Survivor message board on this site- there's rumours of them having a new lead singer called Cameron Barton. He's a young country singer, if reports are true; a friend of Frankie's son Ryan. Ryan has replaced Marc Droubay on drums. I'll leave other people to decide for themselves if Cameron's a good match for the band!

I hear what people are saying re. Mike Slamer's range. I had the same issue with the Terry Brock album he did. All decent songs, but the one that stood out for me was 'Jessie's Gone' which I believe was a co-write from the songwriter in Strangeways. Funnily enough, I love 'Nowhere Land': it had enough cinematic and diverse elements that it never dragged and sounded like a progression of his c

Personally speaking, I needed a little leap of faith due to the album having no Martin Bros involvement (considering how heavily involved in the songwriting they were on the last 2 releases), but I was pleasantly surprised by the samples! Very promising to my ears! Look forward to hearing the full album.
