Just went straight from listening to some Kansas (thanks to the recent thread) into some early Magnum. Quite why Magnum and Kansas have never hooked up for a joint headline tour is beyond me. Even today, Kansas could probably introduce Magnum to a reasonably healthy US audience. So, what are YOUR fave Magnum songs? I know EVERYONE here LOVES this brilliant band! ;) Here are a few of mine

Nobody else rates Hopelessly Human as one of their favorite Kansas songs? Wow! It has everything that makes Kansas great. Other faves: Portrait Closet Chronicles Nobody's Home (one of the finest melodies ever written) Angels Have Fallen (possibly beats Hopelessly Human as my single favorite Kansas track...)

I listen to Rock Art about once a year. I have every intent of revising my opinion and acknowledging that I was wrong about it... but every year the same thing: This is HORRIBLE! Songs like Tall Ships that SHOULD be wonderful just sound lazy. The good stuff is overwhelmed by the third rate pub rock chuggers like We All Need..., Hard Hearted..., Rock Heavy, and the worst song Tony has ever w

As long as there is one person who loves it, Rock Art is highly OVERrated! On Christmas Day is an absolute classic, another one or two songs are OK, the rest is awful. This, of course, is in the context of the rest of Magnum's incredible discography. In the context of music in general, Rock Art is a good album.

After having read a few posts from the thread in question I completely understand your suspicion! I have not read the entire thread, and don't know why the guy was banned, although he did seem to be a little bit pushy... Personally, I couldn't care less if anyone else loves or not the music I love or not. Apart from Magnum, that is. Everyone loves Magnum!

OK I feel the need to point out that I had no idea that the big thread below was about BJH. I tend to avoid anything that is (apparently) about an "AOR Supergroup" so hadn't read the thread.... I completely understand and respect that many people (including the owner of this forum) don't like them. Some of their 80s/90s output was verging on appalling, that is for sure. I will retire

OK here we go... BJHFLH are big in Germany. JLBJH aren't really that big anywhere. Barclay James Harvest doesn't exist anymore, but was at one time big in the UK & Europe. They are now just big in the minds of a few people all over the world who appreciate good music. Glad I could clear that up for you.

OK. Barclay James Harvest are an integral part of my life. Even though I don't actually listen to them all the time any more, I still think of their music as absolutely essential. It is woven in to who I am. They are more English than crumpets and marmite, so few aliens get what they are all about. Prog+Folk+Orchestral+Pop does NOT equal Barclay James Harvest, but it's the best I can do.

I should say for the sake of not putting my words in others mouths that I have absolutely no idea if all members of Guardian currently claim Christian faith, and certainly no idea if they all share my views on the origins of life and the age of the universe. Just need to make that clear. I am not related in any way to the band (and they are probably quite relieved about that!) Fire & Lo

Actually since I started this thread they have had a great deal more (not saying much admittedly) activity than they had recently! :D There's no such thing as bad publicity, remember? Get the name out there, and some will respond. Possibly even some who agree with my extremist Christian views! And no, I'm not stepping back any further. This is too much fun! Predictible, but fun.

Blind devotion? What part of many years of being blessed by their music don't you understand? That's not blind devotion. If nothing else, it's a well deserved 'thank you, more please'. You wanna talk blind devotion? Let's talk about people who believe that billions of years ago there was nothing (or a quantum energy field for those who are honest enough not to be able to accept nothing) whi

Bottom line - Guardian's music has blessed me tremendously over the years, and still does. On the strength of that (past) rather than necessarily the future I am quite content at letting them have some of my money to do with what they will. I personally believe they will use it honestly and attempt to produce an album of music that they think their supporters will enjoy. Nuff said?

Well I am happy to remain naive and gullable. I have no experience in the music bizzzz, and to me $35K for everything including decent promotion, production and distribution as well as actually recording the thing sounds reasonable enough. But I'll be on my merry way now and leave y'all to your cynical banter.... ....hahahahahahaaaa, no chance. I'm staying right here! You don't get off t

Um, that's the whole snarfing point of the thing, isn't it? To make a professional album, promote it properly, get it sounding as good as a decent musician obviously wants it to sound... It all takes money, and more importantly time! These guys have full time jobs, families, debts, cars to fix, pizza to buy so they can feed the kids, dogs to get fixed.... Should they drop all that and conce

QuoteA similar thing has happened with an album I support called "Mercyland: Hymns For the Rest of Us" (an Americana compilation with The Civil Wars, Emmylou Harris, Shawn Mullins, etc). I can pay too much money (again, my opinion) to get the CD through Kickstarter, or I can get it through Amazon after it is released for half as much. Again, surely a case of contributing to more than

Sorry, but this is about more than comparing offers. Perhaps (and Jamie has pretty much admitted this in one of his updates) they did not give their campaign as much thought as they should have. He mentions that they returned from a very well received short tour in South America and simply 'went for it' based on that. So if they didn't spend time checking what band x,y or z are offering at a s

Great album based on one interrupted listen. Will have to give it a few spins and pay closer attention to it all. I am probably in a minority of one in that my favorite Bruce album is Tunnel Of Love.... Also think The Rising and The River are brilliant, as is the Live In New York City double set.

Hmmmm... I am planning a 2-3 week visit back to Blighty this October/November time. Already wondering if I may be able to time this trip right so that I can go see JLBJH. Perhaps Magnum can be kind enough to book some UK dates before (rather than after) the continental EU ones so I can come see you as well? Pretty please?

Yes... But for me it did not live up to expectations after hearing one or more (Broken Wheel in particular) live before the album's release. Broken Wheel live was incredible. The studio version is merely good! The album as a whole has, however, stood the test of time in a wonderful way.
