Totally with you CCM on that one. I've paid for my music & I want to play what I want to play when I want to play it. I don't want to be beholden to subscription fees, internet signal. I want to be in control of the audio quality. I also want to be able to listen to all the obscure stuff I love that disappears off the spotify library because it's not popular enough.

I didn't vote in this poll partly because of my unfamiliarity of a couple of the early Survivor albums & they aren't one of 'my big bands' but I'm working on it. Deffo would have put Too Hot Too Sleep as my #1. It's a monster AOR album from start to finish

Well recorded, yes. Impeccable voices, most certainly. Exciting & fun songs, absolutely not. Dull as dishwater. Personally I've never been a fan but I can appreciate the catchiness of plenty of their songs & their place in Pop history. Oh BTW, I know it's a trivial thing but can we get back to prefixing stuff like this with O/T

One of my all-time 'One Album then Gone' albums (most of the text below from a post of mine earlier this year)... I've been banging the Hanover Fist drum solidly since 1985. I still think this is one of the greatest ever unknown Hard Rock albums. Some might be put off by the luxurious look of the band. But within its grooves lies an incredible mix of Kick Axe, Icon, Warrior, Coney Hatch, Ac/Dc

Gave both a blast back to back to compare & the two. Both brilliant but Maggie Reilly's vocals still edges it for me on the the Oldfield one.

One of my brothers bought Five Miles Out, the M.Oldfield album w/Family Man on it in 1982 & played it constantly. So this is my definitive version. Love the Hall & Oates cover too.

Beautiful! Absolutely blown away. Everyday Hurts is a perennial favourite in our house but we only have Facades which I haven't played in an age. Must give it a spin, sadly I know nothing else in their discography. So my question is what are the best Sad Cafe albums?
