Hi Andrew, Just stumbled across one of the MRCD compilations I'd forgotten about and rediscovered the Jim Peterik track 'My War'. Any idea what happened to the (proposed) solo album it was written for? (I know 'Hearts Are Gonna Roll' was an outtake from the Crossroads Moment sessions). Thanks, - Danny.

CANNOT. WAIT. Span both Vital Signs and Jimi Jamison - Crossroads Moment today. Damn, I wish he and Jim had had a chance to do a sequel. That's a bloody great album and Jim's best work since Survivor, IMO (closely followed by POL's s/t).

Hi, Just wondering if there's any news about the distribution of the Torch album, following the requests for it to be made more widely available? Anyone heard anything? Thanks, - Danny.

One of my favourite live albums ever is Magnum - The Spirit (Live). Songs which, to me, sit flat on the albums, leap into live performed live. Plus, the live arrangements breathe fresh life into old staples like Kingdom of Madness. Check it out.

One of my favourite Survivor songs - never got the recognition it deserved at the time it was originally released and great to see H.E.A.T paying it its dues.

I like both bands and I don't personally object to backing tracks as long as all members of the band are playing their respective parts live as well. Most melodic rock stuff is SO densely layered and arranged, that it's simply impossible to recreate that wall of sound live with just 5 members, and I'd rather hear something that approaches the full sound of the album than something raw and str

Paul Hodson (Hard Rain, Magnum, Ten, Hodson) played on them with Pete, I believe. Have a feeling that John Parr might have been involved as well (they both appear on John's Man With a Vision album which I believe was recorded around the same time) but can't confirm this.

Bass players seem much more prominent in most prog - Take Randy George from Neal Morse's band or Dave Meros from Spock's Beard - both very prominent in the sound (to my ears). Throw in Jonas Reingold in The Flower Kings, and Andreas Blomqvist in Seventh Wonder, Rob Reed in Magenta, Ian Jones in Karnataka, Dave LaRue in Flying Colours...

Any Sylvan fans here? Their new concept album, HOME is astounding. By far their best release since Posthumous Silence, and in many ways a spiritual sequel to that album. If you like Hogarth-era Marillion, meets Porcupine Tree, with a dash of symphonic prog thrown in, check these guys out. Soaring, epic, melancholy, poignant, with dashes of aggression and discordance thrown in here and the

I love Neal Morse. Only had Spock's Beard's Snow for years, which I liked but didn't love at the time (now possibly my favourite Spock's album). Lifeline was my first NM solo album, and now I've collected everything he's officially released before and after (aside from some of the worship albums). His voice is an acquired taste certainly, and his overtly Christian lyrics take some gettin

Hi, Jim Peterik's official page on Facebook has just edited the Torch press release... 'Ever Since the World Began' remix feat. Dave Bickler has been removed. No prizes for guessing why... Looks like there's been a huge outpouring of requests for the album to be made available beyond the initial 500 copies and Frontiers are taking all feedback into consideration, which sounds promising for

Jim Peterik's Official Page on Facebook is suggesting that fans interested in buying a CD copy leave (polite!) messages for Frontiers on their Facebook page, twitter, or their website. Frontiers have said they're taking all the feedback under consideration. Hopefully if the demand is there, further copies may be made available.

Dammit! 500 copies ONLY available at the concert itself? I'm a huge Jim Peterik fan and I'd absolutely love a copy of this album but there is simply no way I can attend the concert. Frontiers - can you confirm whether there will at least be an mp3 version available to fans who can't attend? As Alun posted on the original news item, there must be hundreds of us who would dearly love to hear

I think the distribution is doing the band a disservice here. I don't have the albums, but I like what I hear in the samples and I'd definitely be interested in buying them if they were available for a more reasonable price. I don't mind paying more for a deluxe edition, extra tracks, extra artwork, bonus DVD, etc, etc, but £16 for a standard CD is going to lose them sales. Pity Frontie

Shame, as they've produced some great (lighter) melodic albums.

REALLY looking forward to this one. Huge Peterik fan (although I bow before Richard Epps and Flip Valero in that respect haha!) I'm guessing that You're in Our Hearts (Fergie tribute) and Heaven Passes the Torch (Jimi tribute) are going to be on 'The Torch' album? Please tell me that's not the festival-only release! I can't attend and I'd hate to miss out on it! They also recorded Voices o
