Collective Soul made my Top 20 last year - so, technically, they're out. However, Better Than Ezra is currently hovering in my Top 3. Still a lot of good releases to come, though.

That's definitely the thing with INXS - if you don't bother to dig beyond the hits, you'd never know just how versatile of a band they are. There's lots of stuff going on there that most aren't even aware of - cause they never bothered to discover it. Even I was that way , at one time myself. And, I don't care what anyone else thinks, but Jon Farris is one of best drummers out there - period!

Yeah, but here's the real problem with JD - his voice isn't really all that strong. As this competition has gone on, it's become more and more apparent. Why is it, you think, that he is ALWAYS re-arranging the songs he chooses? It's because it's the only way he can sound as good as he does, is to get the songs to fit around his limited vocal range. One good example - look at the way he did &quo

While it wasn't quite what I was expecting, overall, it's not too bad. There are a couple of songs - "Six To Midnight" and "Hole In My Soul" - that sound like vintage "Gasoline Alley / Every Picture Tells A Story" era Rod Stewart. Still, it was worth the cheap price I paid for it.

455. Re: 1987
Don't think there's many that have been missed, so far, except maybe... Stan Bush & Barrage - s/t Jon Butcher - Wishes Little America - s/t The Cult - Electric Sammy Hagar - originally s/t, now called I Never Said Goodbye Loverboy - Wildside Hurricane - Take What You Want Faster Pussycat - s/t White Sister - Fashion By Passion Lost Boys - Soundtrack ...and I may get crap for these, but I'll

Props to the people who already mentioned... Neverland Tom Kimmel Frozen Ghost ...those would all also make my list. Aside from that, I'll go with... Max Carl - The Circle Danny Wilde - The Boyfriend Riggs - S/T Jeff Paris - Race To Paradise ...still awaiting the day that ANY of these gets re-released on CD. As for ones that I DO have on disc still, I'd say... Killer Dwarves - Big Deal Mic

Ok, I hear what you're saying. I've gotta admit, that sometimes, I feel totally unispired/unimpressed with a lot of the 'new' music that's come out in the last few years. Seems like the last time I was really taken with any newer bands was probably back in 2001. But, I haven't seem to come across many since. Sure, there have been albums and artists I've liked along the way, but not many that ha

Where did you find some of these? Bull Moose? Newburry Comics? Strawberries? Curious, cause that's my backyard, and I don't remember seeing Stan Bush anywhere - or I'd have bought it myself. You're right about the Fogaht being expensive. You can buy it new in most stores for only $2 or $3 more.

Go, baby go! I remember hitting that mark, but now I couldn't even tell you how many I currently have, as I haven't counted in awhile. And that's the thing, pretty soon, you'll stop counting, too, as it just becomes too much of a pain. But, having said that, I suddenly feel the need to count mine - just to actually know.

You can also purchase indivdual preformance trackdownloads for $.99 each, on the RockStar INXS webiste. Here's the lnik if anyone's interested... http://rockstar.msn.com/ I think Jordis is definitley the female frontrunner. There's absolutely no doubt the girl can sing.

And I'm more into ROCK & ROLL STRATEGY, but both albusm are still awesome. I'm still hoping someone will re-issue THE CIRCLE album on CD. I'd buy it for the title track alone.

Me either. Glad this whole album is finally going to see the light of day. I've had half these tracks for over a year noe - they were avaialble for free download on the old 40 Duece site.

Having worked retail at various times in my career, I can tell you from experience that it's actually got less to do with the people running the stores, and more to do with the people running the company, in general. But, like any retail outlet, it depends on which one you shop in. Sure, you're bound to run into some clueless people from time to time, but you're also just as likely to run into

Well I'll let you in on a little secret. The label that the JONES GANG is on - Reality Records - is actually owned/funded by the same parent corporation as FYE, which would be Trans World Entertainment. That's why FYE has the 'exclusive" rights to having it only in their stores (or website).

Hey Andrew, don't know if you were aware of this but here's some background on Ty... Ty Taylor - is the former lead singer of the band Dakota Moon. They put a couple of albums out on Elektra - DAKOTA MOON in 1998, and A PLACE TO LAND in 2002. I would have never known he had the chops he's shown on this show, from his former band. Here's a bit more on the band, from the Allmusic guide.... Dakot

Don't know if any overseas labels are going to be able to stock this one. The label it's coming out on is called REALITY RECORDS, and they are currently distributed EXCLUSIVELY through FYE stores only in the U.S. You should still be able to get it online via them at www.fye.com, and the price is only $9.99 (US)- but the album won't be out until August 9th.

Yeah I remember seeing that before, but like you, have never bothered to actually get around to buying nay of them. Like you said, there's always something else. Sort of funny releated note - one of the first songs that popped up on my mp3 player today, which was set to random, was "Breakout". It's like I willed it to be.

Ah, just dug out "Hang On For Your Life" the other day - great stuff! Particularly love the title treak and "Breakout". Don't know if it's still available, but at one time they had a 'greatest hits' disc out on Enigma - back in 1990, if memory serves. Think that's the only thing of thier's I currently have on CD, but it's got all the good stuff - so I'm not complaining.

I agree, so far the summer still belongs to BATMAN BEGINS. WAR OF THE WORLS was ok. It was entertaining. It was an interesting take. But it also had more than a few plot holes, and the very "Hollywood" ending - not how the aliens met their fate, but the one regarding Cruise & family and their journey's end - was totally implausable. Don't want to say too much for those who haven't

Yes, Andrew, nicely done - indeed! It was great to finally hear a lot of the Marice story from her perspective. I'm glad she's found some peace in her life. I hope, too, that she will one day again grace us with some new material.

Feel pretty much the same way, which is why it ranked a bit higher on my list. At the very least, EUPHORIA sounds like a Def Leppard album, or at what I'd like one to sound like - which is not the same of X. X, many times, to me at least, sounds more like an aging boy band, than the same group who recorded HIGH AND DRY. Too many syrupy ballads, and not nearly enough ROCK. But, for what it is,

I have the DVD-Audio disc of OPALINE (as well as the regular version), and on the commentary tracks about the songs, they said they were very inspired by Coldplay's PARACHUTES album. Apparently, they (especially guitarist Riodney Cravens) listened to it quite a lot before and during the recording sessions, and admit that it shows in the writing and performance of the album.

The album was re-issued about 6 months after it first came out, with a bonus disc of all acoustic cuts - at least in the US. It's been out for over a year and half since it was first issued.
