Ditto, Robin.... This is what I wrote over at rockreport.be (which as you can see, very much echoes your thoughts!!) I had become a little jaded by some of JB's last few albums, but this (his 17th) has filled me with renewed enjoyment and admiration - possibly because everything here comprises original songs, written by or jointly written by JB himself. As usual, the songs are in a wide r

Wonderful night in 'Tod Morgan's House' (those who were there will understand!) last night with Dave and Paul from Lost Weekend providing a great support set. Paul :-)

I have never got involved in these campaigns, although one I have recently been notified about - a 6CD box set of ANUBIS GATE music, featuring their first four now expensively hard to find albums plus 2 CDs of rare and not previously available material - has tempted me, I must admit. Pledge / Kickstarter et al is a funding method that has gained momentum in recent times, but I remain very wary

There seems to be a problem with physical supplies of this album... I have had this release on pre-order for ages, and now both of my usual suppliers are saying that they are having difficulty securing supplies, even though the release date has been and gone. The release is on the Belgian label MAUSOLEUM, but look at their web site and it does not seem to have been updated since last year.

Steve Hillage at the Free Trade Hall in Manchester, sometime in the 1970s. Absolute garbage, so left half way through.... This is the ONLY time I have ever done that. Paul :-(

I am continuing with 7 despite the constant "encouragement" to "upgrade" to 10. I've taken note of the horror stories, so am glad that machinehead has had no problems. Paul

Possibly not as it is a signed copy. Nevertheless, the seller has a hugely unrealistic expectation!! Paul

Further: I've now looked up the Japanese version of 'America' on Discogs and although there are three bonus cuts on there (as Denrocker says), only two are from the debut - 'Once In My Lifetime' and 'Heaven's Door'. The other bonus track is actually an acoustic version of 'Fall' which first appears on 'America'. Hope this helps! Paul

I also have all three albums, and are a treasured part of my music library. Must admit, I've never thought of the eponymous debut as an "EP" however! There are 9 tracks and 35 minutes of music.... Agree that 'America' is the best of the three, but have never seen the Japanese version. Paul :-)

I've noticed that many of the Frontiers releases have held their price - and in some cases increased markedly - over time. However, salvation is at hand for you. May I suggest you go and have a look at the Discogs site: www.discogs.com I think you will be pleasantly surprised in respect of both of the albums you seek. All the best, Paul

Yes, David: it's very disappointing to see people here having a go at someone who has enjoyed an album. The scene for melodic rock/melodic metal/prog rock/prog metal is small enough without internal bickering. There has actually been a lot of really wonderful music released within these genres over the past couple of years or so and 2016 looks like being another one. It's certainly started ve

This album presents a real dichotomy. I purchased it without question. I have seen Nathan James perform as part of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra troupe. Very good he was too, but in singing 'Gutter Ballet' his emotional power as a singer was controlled. What I am less fond of in the hard rock genre are vocalists who do not control themselves and shriek and holler when it is not necessary. For

Yes it is, Andrew! I believe that the reviews in Fireworks (and onto Rocktopia) are BALANCED reviews...and you will find many a negative comment in such a review even if the overall outcome is mainly favourable. Here, you do all of the reviews and you suggest this allows you to maintain an overall standard - which I believe you do. Fireworks has a strong writing team, and each writer has t

Interesting reading this thread. If anything vindicates the decision of Fireworks Magazine NOT to give scores but to allow the readers to get a good steer from what the writer thinks. This was discussed again by the Fireworks management team ahead of the relaunch of the magazine and the status quo eventually confirmed / agreed! I have mentioned the quote "writing about music is like d
