Cringeworthy lyrics, subtle as a brick.

Really like the new Bruce song. Amazing production and it's good to hear E Street Band again. Got a bit emotional watching the video - Bruce is 70 and the rest are of similar age so you never know how much more we're gonna get. Looking forward to the album. I enjoyed Western Stars a lot too!

Marillion are great acoustic. Love the acoustic Cadogan Hall gig from some years back.

One of the finest vocal performances ever put to tape, and in my opinion one of the greatest songs ever written. The key change for the second verse, the guitar solo, the monumental power of Freddie's voice and the instrumentation... just incredible.

LOVE these two albums. They got some fat on them but say a double album that doesn't. I'd go: 01. Civil War 02. Live & Let Die 03. 14 Years 04. Yesterdays 05. Don't Cry 06. Pretty Tied Up 07. Locomotive 08. Estranged 09. Dead Horse 10. Double Talkin' Jive 11. November Rain 12. You Could Be Mine 13. Coma My World is of course a travesty but I pretty much like all the othe

Now I don't mind Bon Jovi most of the time but as others have said I can not stand when he's trying to emulate Springsteen - poorly. One is a world class lyricist and the other is Jon Bon Jovi. The lyrics are subtle as a brick and reads like a message board post on "what's wrong with America".

Wow could not disagree more. He's written some outstanding pop tunes - I think the post-reformation Take That stuff is tremendous. Beautiful melodic pop. One of the most successful music comebacks of all time no matter how you slice it. I saw Take That at the O2 in London last year and it was a phenomenal show. Even if you weren't a huge fan of the music you'd enjoy the extraordinary stage s

Gary Barlow is a fantastic singer and songwriter, not gonna lie. Written many top class tunes.

Agree! Live especially Roger's backing vocals were a huge part of the sound. His raspy tenor is the perfect compliment to Freddie, and he has got some great lead vocals too in their discography. His solo work is great too. Especially Electric Fire from 1998 and the final The Cross album.I love Brian May's voice too - soft and gentle and the perfect third part of their harmonies. He sings lead on

Wow could not disagree more. I thought it was a fantastic album. Perhaps a song too long but hey. The title track is a straight up masterpiece and Tucson Train is Bruce at his three-chord best. The companion film was also great where he performed the album in an old barn in New Jersey,bookended by a great cover of Glen Campbell's Rhinestone Cowboy. Edit: i have seen Bruce live 9 times, t

Yep one of my favourites. Very varied, superbly melodic. It's a very atmospheric album, Stormy Weather sets the tone from the get-go and the entire thing has a wonderful ambience to it. Many great harmony vocals on this CD and some superb drumming from Mickey Barker. Around this time Tony Clarkin also tapped into another gear guitar-wise in the live setting - the concert from their 1992 Bir

17 years since this absolute belter of a record was released. Any fans? Thought it would be a good idea to bring it out and give it a spin for the first time in a good while. Still holds up extremely well. Heavy, melodic, almost metal in places with some of Bob's finest singing put on tape.

Magnum - Maybe Tonight https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k3ygj2sZktU How do you even leave a track like that off the record? Would've made Wings Of Heaven even better!

A mild one but scary nonetheless. All the best to Brian, decent bloke and one of the all time great guitarists. Nobody has ever sounded like him.

Well said Figge, agree with everything you said. For the latter day stuff, all the albums from Brand New Morning (2004) and onwards are very consistent so if you like their updated sound there is much to enjoy and discover. Best of luck Hustler, there is a lot of great music for you to explore. Generally their albums have aged extremely well IMO. I guess Vigilante with the gated drums a

20 quality albums, even Breath Of Life that is my least favourite one has some good tunes. The Serpent Rings was excellent! And the three album run of OASN - Vigilante - Wings Of Heaven is hard to beat, just out of this world.

Interesting you should say that Aussie Dave because Harry Styles' album Fine Line that came out a while back is a great record with some proper throwback vibes. Way better than Richard Marx's which to me sounds both dull and lifeless, no matter how good and unique his voice is.

Can we all just take a moment to appreciate this absolute banger though? Favourite Magnum-tune in a long time. From the moody verses (love the harmony vocals in the back half!) to the melodic pre-chorus and then a hand-clap chorus belter! Really digging the album - growing with each listen. Only song I struggle with is Not Forgiven. I like the breakdown tho.

First listen - sounds pretty bloody good. The songs have many twists and turns. Some great Clarkin lyrics per usual. Looking forward to giving this some more spins coming days. The Archway Of Tears - proper belter! Other standouts are the title track, Crimson On The White Sand and the magnificent Man.

Agree, Elton has released many fine albums since the turn of the millenium. The Captain & The Kid from 2006 and The Union with Leon Russell from 2010 are my favourites.
