No secret I was a huge huge Ten fan. Babylon was probably the last really special album by them after that it went a bit downhill for me. Far beyond the World was decent but have to admit my copy of return to Evermore got stolen and I never replaced it.

I really wish that they had stuck to having outside producers and that Gary had shared songwriting duties. If he had let Vinny and Paul get involved then maybe the overall standard might not have dropped.

As for Gary's range if you listen to say his first solo album (before the now and then days) he did push himself a lot more. I think being in control of songriting and production he just found a spot that was too comfortable and predicable.

I also think the lack of touring in the latter years is an issue. Aside from Fleetwoodstock they aint played the uk in years! For me I don't see the point in buying albums from a band that don't give a toss about playing live. There is kind of no point really.

Much as I love them I think they are dead in teh water now :/



Passion is the source of our finest moments,
The joy of love, the clarity of hatred and the ecstasy of grief.
