Up until the year I turned 16 (May 1988) my musical influences were my oldest brother (All things Classical) and my other brother (Bryan Ferry and other pop, and bizarrely, Nana Mouskouri and other easy listening) I also grew up appreciating things like Amazing Grace and others being blasted out by massed Pipes & Drums - still love that sound to this day! But back to 1988 and all that..

OK so Pour Some Sugar On Me & Excitable are pants (and not cool ones either). Love Bites has one of the most gut-shudderingly awful lyrics ever written, but I still like the tune. The rest of the album is good enough that I really don't notice how terrible the lyrics may or may not be. And the production is perfect for the songs. Oh, and I too love Rocket all the way through!

Hmmmm.... Gods Of War is one of my all time favorite songs, and I love the album overall. But PSSOM absolutely SUCKS.

https://www.rodneymatthewsstudios.com/products/vigilante-magnum Rodney had at Tony's request come up with a rough sketch based on Tony's idea, but Polydor went with the Chris Moore cover instead... At one time I managed to find an interview with Chris in which he wasn't exactly complimentary about Magnum... Oh well. Personally I don't mind the cover as it is, and I adore the music. Yes,

Lost On The Road is a fine album, with Welcome To The Cosmic Cabaret a clear highlight for me. However overall it isn't one of my favorites. Magnum have been my #1= band since 1988 (alongside a few others), and their current run of form (and indeed commercial success such as it is these days apart from for a few huge names) is a wonderful thing! Tony Clarkin's consistency as a songwriter is simpl

Well, although I can't say that this is my favourite album of all time (impossible question), I CAN say that it is THE album that made such an impact on me that my (musical, and in some ways overall) life changed permanently from the moment I heard it for the first time... MAGNUM: WINGS OF HEAVEN There's no such thing as a 'perfect' album - there really isn't. And even if there was, this wo

Wow Stefan! Thanks for taking the time to send such a great reply. As I'm travelling a lot, I'm not actually looking to buy any vinyl (famous last words - if I do I'll manage some how). It's the sheer brilliance of the concept of that store that I'm in awe of, and will most definitely be partaking of a pie or three. The 'Black Sabbath' is sounding like it will be my first choice!

I'm kind of the other way round. I still think LOTR is a great album, but back when I first heard it, it was pretty close to being my #1 of all time. Last few times I listened, it didn't grab me in quite the same way as it did all those years ago.

Mickey Thomas last year. He can still sing ok, but his current band masquerading as Starship were absolutely butchering the music. Four songs in and I was out.

The movie was OK at best - astounded that it won FOUR Oscars? Best actor maybe, as he was by far the best thing about the movie - but the others? Oh well - I know nothing about movie making :)

Another vote from me for Magnum, but OASTN is so not AOR (as I understand it at least) it's baffling that it's on the list? Vigilante & WOH is where it's at for Magnum's AOR offerings, with Goodnight LA & Sleepwalking not too far behind. And then - how about Bob Catley's first solo album The Tower? Absolutely fantastic, and one of the songs on there (Steel) is to my ears the finest
