That is an excellent version of the song. She's a great artist! I'm into Country anyway, so have quite a bit of her music on iTunes and a couple of her CDs. There's a range of stuff from out and out old-school type country to Southern Rock-influenced stuff and everything in between.

Thanks Andrew! Sadly my Mac refused to convert the file so I can't play it. Never mind eh... Really appreciate the effort you went to regardless. EDIT: Managed to find and download an APP and can now access the file! Yippee! Gonna watch now!!!

So Fired Up is one of my favourite AOR albums of the early 80s. I've loved it since I first heard it back in about 1989 in a little emporium in a small town in Norfolk UK. The owner was a massive AOR fanatic and, having established that I was also a serious fan, said to me when I went in one day "I have something you will DEFINITELY want to hear!" and dragged out the original vinyl. I w

Skydiving is my favourite of all the songs Tony has sung over the years. That whole album is a cracker, but for me Skydiving is the standout.

It's true that Revelation has its flaws, but to me it sounds like a 'proper' Journey album. Eclipse (to me) is not well written and is pretty poor. 'Heavier' doesn't equate with 'better' or 'worse' for me: it's all about whether the songs speak to me. I got rid of Eclipse a few months after buying it because melodically, it didn't work for me. It bored me rigid, to be honest. It was as big a disa

Lots of good points raised for both albums. I find the debut a shade too long and like some others above, I find some of the 'heavier' tracks are weaker than the big AOR numbers. Forget Me Not is the standout track for me. I haven't done it yet, but I reckon an ITunes playlist culled from the big AOR anthems and some of the ballads from both albums would create a marvellous AOR album. But then I'

Very classic Styx in its sound. For a man in his 70s, Dennis sounds amazing!

I'm having a declutter in preparation for a downsizing house move and have been getting rid of loads of CDs and DVDs via Music Magpie. However, the Firefest DVDs don't have bar codes, so I can't get rid of them that way... Anyway, I have the Valentine one and the White Sister one. Both really cool, but I never watch them and am really short of space in my new place, so... If you want either, sh

Great stuff! Really wish I could've made it to a show. He sounds pretty decent vocally given how old he is and how hard these songs are to sing. A few slightly iffy high end notes, but who's counting? Always loved this song...

Yeah, bang on! Brilliant piece of writing and so reminiscent of the material on Heroes and Zeroes, which is by far my favourite of Glen's albums. Like you I thought the Edge of the Century album was, at best, patchy. Glen wasn't really a great fit within Styx in my opinion...

I love these albums! Brilliant Christian AOR/Soft rock from the early 90s. 'The Other Fall of Cambrai' is an amazing track...

Having been inspired by this thread to listen to what Chicago stuff I have on my hard drive, I'm just listening to '21 - the unreleased Ron Nevison mix' (not sure where I got it from - if it came from MRX or maybe some dodgy download site - not that I normally frequent such places) and it's most definitely very AOR albeit with loads of West Coast influence. It's also very good... Not exactly kick

Much better! The guitar sounds work much better than the Beast In Black version IMHO - not quite so 'metal'.

No Easy way Out should be better - it was a classic when Robert Tepper wrote it back in the mid 80s!

I thought Aviator was 1986 but that could just be the year I bought it! Lol! What this thread has done for me is to reiterate just how second-rate so much of the current stuff really is by comparison - even much of the 'better' stuff from today really can't hold a candle to most of the albums on the various lists in this thread in my humble opinion.

I marginally prefer the debut to Everybody's Crazy (although that's also an epic album!) I really enjoy The Hunger very much too. Soul Provider & Time Love and Tenderness both have some stunning moments (and some schmaltz that I can't quite stomach). The One Thing has a handful of tracks I enjoy too, but from here on in the schmaltz quotient increases too much. My ex-wife loves him so we had

I do still have the cd, but never play it. Always felt underwhelmed. Might try it again to see if it's still a bit 'meh' or whether I like it more now my tastes are changing slightly...

That's pretty good. Certainly sounds like the material from their debut album which I'm very glad about. Looking forward to hearing more...

Brilliant album! One of the highlights of a crowded genre in the late 80s. Stunning songs, performances and production. 'The Burn' has to be one of my favourite album openers from that era.
