Sad to hear... and makes me feel old. Phil and UFO (in all its various incarnations) have been a major part of my musical landscape for about as far back as I can remember. unexpected too as he can definitely still can get it done- and I felt that Conspiracy Of Stars was the the best album they'd done since Vinny joined- but oh well, I understand it, all things must end eventually and he wants to

To quote Lynch, “The album sounds like a fusion of early Chili Peppers meets King Crimson meets Judas Priest! It’s a super fun band.” Well George, I dunno about all that... but it's growing on me after a couple listens... I'm kinda digging it. Interested to see what the whole album sounds like.

Reaction or not- Pull is IMO Wingers best album and most representative of their full capabilities as musicians and writers. As for IV, I was disappointed at the time- it wasn’t what I was expecting, and the sequencing order didn’t help either- but in hindsight it’s grown on me and I appreciate and enjoy several songs on it alot more then I did when it was released.

The reason for decline of “the scene” was mass-marketing and over saturation that eventually gets rejected by a younger population looking for something new and different. Quality is a subjective term, but you can count on popular culture eating itself over and over again- the cycle has repeated itself throughout history with musical styles. The same thing happened to grunge too.

Every Mother's Nightmare? Their 2nd album “Wake Up Screaming" is all I have by these guys, and there’s actually some very good songs and musicianship on there, along with good production by Jim Gaines and Kevin Elson. And being out of Nashville Tenn, had a more of a bluesy, southern element vs. the typical “hair metal”... but coming out in 1993 was already too late. The other thing w

Yes indeed- Tora Tora, coming out of Memphis blending blues/ hard rock at its finest and one of the best lead vocal voices of that era. Dig both albums, with Wild America being a step up from the debut. What about their unreleased 3rd album, Revolution Day, which was eventually put out on CD in 2011 by FnA Records? I’ve heard good things about it. Has anybody here heard it?

Calling it a “ballad” or not is just quibbling over semantics. I think we can all agree that this song is nothing that hasn’t been done (better or worse) countless times before. Whether that’s a good or a bad thing is up to the listener to decide. To those that are digging it, I’m glad you are. I’ve played it 3 times and while I don’t dislike it, for me it’s just too derivative a

As a matter of taste I was never an R.E.M. fan or bought an album, but I’ve heard enough to be able to appreciate that they had musical credibility as songwriters and musicians, whereas from a musical perspective Poison were a very low bar as far as me or anyone I knew were concerned. They were a looked on as a hair band that played silly ass songs about "partying" to pull chicks; dis

Yeah, big Detective fan here. I had Chequered Past on lp when it came out, remember digging it enough that I bought the CD reissue, but haven’t played it in years- I love these threads that remind you to go dig stuff out of the vault!

I guess I'll be the first to say that unfortunately it's pretty much what I expected... of course both guys are talented vocalists, but this is yet another undistinguished by-the-numbers Journey-esque ballad from ADV. The writing and musical/vocal performances lack any originality or excitement that sparks my interest. Listenable but not something I'd spend my money on. Hoping there'll be some le

Nice to see them get mentioned here, good Canadian prog band. I first heard of them due to Benoit David (who was their 3rd and imo best lead vocalist) being the guy who became the lead singer of Yes, and Oliver Wakeman from Yes and Daryl Stuermer from Genesis guesting on their fourth studio album One Among the Living in 2010. Here’s a link to the title track: https://youtu.be/C1nOEWq8vdY

Ok, good to know. Johnny had said that all the songs on his solo CD were co-written by himself and a guy named Eric Gadrix, formerly of a band (I’m not familiar with) called Raquel. Makes it more likely tho that this Gioeli- Castronovo album is another Frontiers “house project”. But it doesn’t make sense that he’d want to have both albums released at the same time?

This could be great- or not...like everyone else, wondering who's handling the writing and production on this- hopefully not just another ADV assembly line job? Also- the release date is the same as what Johnny originally had said for his solo album "One Voice" (with Deen as a guest drummer on some tracks)... so I'm assuming something occurred that led to Frontiers "re-branding&quo

That's interesting, T (speaking as a bassist myself we're usually the ones keeping everyone else's ego in check, lol)... but Meghan and Greg were the drawing cards of the band, so (from the outside looking in) who really cared about the bass player? Given the momentum they were building wouldn't you think they'd just dump his ass and keep on rolling?...must have been more to it than that?

Yes, Maragold is killer- in fact Ritchie Kotzen had it playing over the PA before the show when I saw him a couple weeks ago! Sue Willetts/Dante Fox is definitely worth checking out- I’ve been enjoying their last couple albums for a while now In fairness I haven’t heard everything Issa has done- but what I’ve heard of her voice hasn’t held my interest enough to motivate me to invest
