I didn't know I could handle another 10 inches and it was rough but in the end I'm glad I did it.

I don't know who these guys are, but Guthrie is on this which is cool but this is actually some decent classic style melodic rock.  Although the singer is funny as fuck in this atrocious Frontiers clip.

I enjoyed that. Sounded very much like the Payne era Asia. Guthrie is awesome

Even funnier is the fact that Payne is not trying to be funny .  I used to watch his videos just to watch his moves/facial expressions - as you say, funny as fuck :lol

There's a lot of foul language going on here for The Wuss Thread.

I played Asiaís Aria last night. Still a very good AOR album. Very different from their early prog pop/rock approach, but Iíd take Payneís voice over Wettonís

Best Asia album to check out?  I don't think from what I've heard I'd be big into them, but what's a good one to check out?  I think I'd like the AOR stuff more than the prog stuff from the little I've heard.

Hmm. First ones a classic. I have a soft spot for Astra, very 80s, and Aria is worth a go but itís fairly laid back stuff. Thereís loads of their albums I havenít heard though.

That D7kes of the Orient album has also Jeff Kollman and Bruce Bouillet on it so the playing should be ok😀

I don't mind it Kade (better if I don't watch the vid :lol  ).   The solo section was the highlight for me but I find it weird that they left in a couple of badly fretted notes by Guthrie.

I'm a big fan of the Payne Asia albums, all of them have their own merits.

I'll have to re listen but I didn't notice anything off.  He does have a pretty distinct jazzy style.

Just been on Facebook and saw that Zeno Roth has died, brother of Uli and melodic rocker in his own right. Decent melodic rock stuff if you havenít heard of him. RIP.

Sad to hear that Paul.   He had a place in my childhood listening - first with Zenology (from which was born the band Fair Warning) , then back to the debut and later Listen To The Light.   He had his own style and sound which is half the battle with me.


R.I.P  Zeno  :-\

I seem to be saying this a lot lately but he was featured in a recent podcast :lol   the U-Z's of hard rock rarities.

We kind of do.  The podcasts are amazing and tons of great tunes but I think it's human nature to take and say thank you and move on and do any of us really don't dive into what Brent does?  After my roulette I may go back and explore more when I have time also as there is so much there for us to get into.

Saying that, we all still do really enjoy and appreciate it and will lap up the next one.

I have to force myself to limit the explorations to 10-15 of the *BEST* of the Best of from B&B.  I seriously had about 30 albums from the first few podcasts to check out.  My wallet couldn't take it.

But I am anxiously awaiting the 'best of 2017'.  I still spin the BEST of Brent 2016 albums regularly - and many individual songs.

That's cool then.  I guess since I've lost interest in exploring new music the last couple of years doesn't help and would like to hear the 2017, but again, I probably won't listen until after my roulette.  There is so much the last 2 years I wouldn't have heard or even have any idea about.

Life gets in the way, but it needs to change.

If I risk my three-peat roulette winning streak and join the wolfking roulette (haven't done one in ages as the shows take up so much time) I might kill two birds with one stone and set myself the challenge of only sending stuff from my Best of 2017 and see how we go  ;D

I am sitting here working on a show as we speak.

Funny you mention that, as I've been so out of the loop the last couple of years, I'm thinking about pinching Dave's idea and just have maybe 2016/2017 releases as you guys won't struggle with that with what I've heard.

You obviously will be invited but up to you if you participate man, all good if you don't have the time.

The whole thing will be iffy haha.

I have to work out what I'm looking for to be honest.  The newer stuff seems like the logical choice.  I doubt there's much older stuff I can be introduced to now that will really wow my, but the amount of releases you guys have been rating and pimping does have me intrigued.

Yeah, I could definitely do that without a problem, but there are a couple of 'older' items I was hoping to lay on you.  Of course, I can always do that outside of a roulette.
