Some really good songs but some proper sucky production and arrangements... Why does he want to sound like a 20 year old doing EDM-flavoured pop??? More like Front Row Seat would've been better.

The debut album is utterly essential. Ok, it may be a lot more 'generic AOR' and less adventurous in the songwriting and production than most of what followed, but that doesn't make it any the less essential. I recall being a bit shocked by how much harder Mood Swings rocked when I fist bought that, although again the quality of the writing and performances was stellar. To be honest, the debut

Tim Pierce's work on the new song Slip Through My Fingers is about as close as they'll ever get to the classic sound without Farris - that song could easily have sat in the Go On album in my opinion.

Rock Candy? Didn't think they'd released Pull...just Welcome to the Real World and Go On...?? It's funny, I loved Go On despite how different it was to Welcome To The Real World, being much more textured and introspective, but I have always struggled a bit with Pull. It's very cleverly written and almost, dare I say it, 'progressive' in nature and the hooks are very subtle. I also miss the gui

Monsters is good but I personally prefer Big Prize and Racing After Midnight... Haven't played either in ages. Must rectify that.

I hardly ever buy rock albums these days, but judging by that track I need two buy this album when it comes out. Great track! Superb hooks, interesting guitar parts...what's not to like?

Absolutely love that track! Cool video too. I'm not a fan of the vocal stylings he uses, but with everything I've heard from the new album so far, the songwriting has transcended my dislike of his falsetto style...

When he's pumping out the big, brash rock tracks, I love him, but when he goes all Bob Dylan, he bores me rigid. The E Street Band are one of the best live acts in the world though - stunning musicians all of them and they need to be the way Bruce runs his live shows.

Great show last night! All 3 bands put on excellent performances. How Steve Overland still hits some of the high notes on those Tough it Out songs at his age amazes me!

Nice review James. I hadn't twigged til I read it who you are - I know of you from the Country Music Attendees Facebook group. Didn't realise til now that you were also into melodic rock...

I got rid of my copy of Kimball/Jamison. Thought it was pretty weak to be honest... Never Too Late on the other hand is MUCH better!

That's very sad. He was only two years older than me. I will be cranking out the Shy albums this evening and raising a glass in his honour. I only hope that when my time comes I face it with even a fraction of the courage, dignity and grace that he has done. Brave man with the right attitude to it all. RIP Tony.

Bloody great album! Head and shoulders above everything else in the genre this year in my opinion. I love Bruno's songwriting and production style and the vocals and guitar work are killer!

Great vocals, but the songs don't quite hit the spot for me. Shame, as he has a fabulous set of pipes on him!

It's Work of Art doing what they do. Their debut was brilliant - sounded a bit different from the crowd at the time. Everything they've done since has been variations on that same theme. To be fair, whichever album I play of theirs I always enjoy and I liked this song on first hearing. But I can see why many people would see it as bland or by 'numbers.' I'll get the CD (and that's rare these days
