Just because I know y'all are waiting for me to share my Top 10 BJH songs - here they are: 10 -- Alone In The Night (TOTALLY off the radar Lees song from '88) 9 -- Cold War (Holroyd doing what only he can do in '93) 8 -- In Search Of England (Wolstenholme's '78 last recorded song with BJH) 7 -- If Love Is King (1990, and Lees writes the best song you've never heard) 6 -- Jonathan (1975, a

BJH were one of the many musical discoveries I made in 88/89, and to this day they have consistently been in my Top 5 - usually at around #2. At their best, the 3 main songwriters in the original band are individually as good as anyone else, and collectively better than anyone else. All the way from 1970's debut with songs like 'The Sun Will Never Shine' through to 'Strange Worlds' ("On a

White Heart are my favorite of the 'big name' (haha) Christian melodic rock bands. As has been said, albums such as Powerhouse, Freedom, Tales Of Wonder etc.. are as good as if not better than pretty much ANYTHING else. Fantastic musicians, great vocals, and very strong songwriting. For melodic rock fans, I'd also strongly recommend Novella (especially their first album 'One Big Sky') and Figh

Awww man! I just played the first track (Here & Now), and THIS is what rock music is all about. Hopefully the rest of the album makes me smile in the same way. Onwards and upwards! Edit: Almost finished. Great album! I've now got Delta V by Kepler Ten lined up to go, as this singing is an incredibly rare find for me - I can listen to him for an entire album without wincing once! If a

I had/have (not sure TBH) the Rex release of this. The track listing on Discogs is different for each version. One has 'Mr Jones', and the other has 'Zero Man'. The running order is also totally different. I think I like it, but don't remember a note and obviously haven't revisited it very often! However I can say the same for 100s of great albums.

Magnum Along with Barclay James Harvest, Midnight Oil, and Kansas, Magnum have been my favorite since 1988. Overall though, Tony Clarkin's single-handed body of work far outshines that of any other songwriter I know. Magnum will always be #1

I can't believe that The Serpent Rings hasn't had a single mention as far as I can see! I think it's Magnum at their best, and after trying a few titles I've seen listed in this thread, there is nothing that comes close. Even the new Kansas has left me a little bit cold. Personally, that one is not as good (songs or performance) as the excellent Prelude Implicit Anyway, my album of the year:

A few years ago when I had money I supported a number of Kickstarter campaigns, including a couple where I decided to go for more than the usual signed LP or whatever. On my wall I have the certificate presented to David Bach (of Guardian) for his song "Never Say Goodbye", which was a DOVE AWARD NOMINEE :O :O for Metal Recorded Song of the Year!

I was thinking a couple of days ago that I'd like to know what I'd come up with if I made a playlist of 100 songs. So, I had the bright idea of making a playlist of 100 songs in order to find out. However, I had to set some parameters, and here they are: 1. Compile, without any really careful thought, a list of 20 favorite artists (it is possible that this first version has some glaring absenc

Yeah I knew you'd show up pretty sharpish! Hey, I'm still looking forward to meeting you at some Neal Morse related show one day! We both have great taste in music that intersects at some points :)

I have a small collection of print advertising for some favorite artists. Apart from that, a couple of t-shirts, some article clippings, and that's about it. Our small apartment is full of artwork of all sorts. I find it helps me remember who I am, which as I get older isn't always as easy as it should be!

Magnum & Barclay James Harvest - the two bands that have had most impact on my life, both discovered by me when I was 16 in 1988. Within a few months of hearing Magnum on TOTP for the first time I started college in Edinburgh, and my username on the network was MAGNUMANIAC :D I'm not the coolest vegetable in the fridge, that's for sure! But I'm OK with that.
