Thanks...was trying to think of what this reminded me. A very solid release and while there may not be those melodic choruses of the past and is really quite a heavy album, it always stay is MHR territory and there are some sublime bridges in some of the songs which seem to intensify in quality with repeated listens. A great album. Paul :-)

Surely not, Bud! The review in Fireworks magazine states "This album looks and sounds like a throwback to the band's prime and in this form it's definitely one not to miss". Paul :-)

From my perspective there are plenty of younger rock bands coming through.... Of course, the mainstream broadcast media largely ignores it. Sigh! Paul

Yes, I've heard of them Dave, but haven't got the album yet. Did you order your BSR from BASE.com for £9.99?? Paul :-)

Yes, I'm a physical product purchaser (no downloads) and the CD booklets are important to me. In fact, not just the booklets, but the overall presentation and I'm a great fan of digibooks done well - and two such have arrived this very day: Black Star Riders and Scorpions (the former descibed as a "limited edition 2CD digibook, the latter a "limited deluxe edition".) I prioritiz

The DVD and 2CD of 'Home' has arrived today. Can't wait to give it a viewing/listen. Thanks once again for the help/recommendation. Paul :-)

OK then, I've just sampled all of the songs off the self-titled album (the one with the really naff cover, featuring a rabbit) and what's not to like? There's a sort of a Bob Seger vibe to be heard, and I rather enjoyed what I heard. So will talk to my financial adviser about getting this and the DVD + 2CD version of 'Home' that Mick recommended. BTW, I think I know why I've avoided this

My point, Terry - and as I said I've never heard anything by the band - was that I was hoping Collective Soul do not inhabit the end of the rock spectrum where "funk" is to be found, as that does not float my boat at all! I'm so glad this is not the case... Mick - thanks for the DVD recommendation. I'm still wondering why I've previously missed the boat with this band! Paul :-

I'm going to admit that this lot have passed me by completely. I do not think I have ever (knowingly) ever heard a note by/from them. Please convince me why I should care, without using the work "funky" (which I sinceley hope does not apply!!) Cheers, Paul

I regard this as an outstanding release, and Ale del Vecchio has excelled himself here. Given that the vocalist is Deen Castronovo, what were people expecting? A technical metal album?? Deary me!! Anyway, I am a very happy bunny who enjoys good melodic rock music for what it is, and I have absolutely no complaints about this album. Paul :-)

Well, that's pretty darned good, if you ask me! Foolish for not including it on every CD... Sometimes record company marketing baffles me. OK, so in the USA, Best Buy negotiated a deal for exclusivity it would seem (and other major retailers have done that with key albums we enjoy here, previously). But why is it not on the UK release? Concerns about imports, or some other factor? I m

Sorry, Buirt!! But it took me a long time to find these albums at anywhere near a reasonable price. Indeed, I only got a proper copy of the debut album 'Pale Sister Of Light' (having had a CDR) after I secured a copy of 'All The Shades Of Darkened Light' last year. BTW, as those of you who know me realise, I do not condone CDRs, and I only ask for one when buying an original is prohibitively

oh...may have been comparing "nuts and raisins"!! Our multi-national forum doesn't always have posts that indicate what territory the poster is from. My comment refers to the Uk, whereas Scott is presumably in the US. The ones I am referring to all have 12 tracks...so if you have more in the US then lucky you!! Paul :-)

Is there a version with bonus tracks, Scott? I can see a version at Amazon with a bonus photocard that includes printed signatures of the entire band and then there's a German box set that comes with a leather wallet...but I can see no mention with either of these of there being bonus tracks. What were you hoping for? Paul
