Love the guy's voice, but I much prefer it on the heavier songs. If this is like a smoother Steelhouse Lane, I'll probably have to steer well clear!

Oh my christ! Has anyone else heard those samples yet? That 'Diamond Blue' song is one of the best things I've heard in this wonderful year of music so far. What a brilliant track. Steelhouse Lane guitarwork all the way. 'Jessies' gone' just sounds like a delightful mix of Steelhouse Lane and Strangeways, 'It's you' is nice too and 'Face in the crowd' is no doubt the weak link of the pack, but I am offically super excited about this one now. Sounds very, very much like Steelhouse Lane to me. Which is magnificent.

'Soldier falls' has got to be one of the most moving "war" songs to date. Great song.

 

Overall, great CD. Missed out on my top 10 this year probably because it promised perfection early on and overall the CD didn't quite deliver to that extent. It's Slamer (oh, and I guess Brock probably contributed something to the CD too, lol) so it's always going to be excellent, but 'Diamond Blue' and 'Jessie's Gone' are just sheer perfection, imo. It's hard for songs to live up to something that good, so by comparison the rest of the CD, which is excellent in it's own right, maybe was made to look a little inferior. :) Still, I think it came in at 12 or something, which was a great spot considering the strength of the year.

Stop copying me half way around the world Terry Brock - Diamond Blue was #12 on my fav list first.

 

 

Brilliant effort with the title track, It's You , Jessie's Gone and of course Soldier Falls being my favs on it.

 

Terry had a great and terrible year all at the same time. Brilliant solo effort, solid on the new Giant and the Strangeways release albeit not his fault was pretty damn boring.

Yep, agreed:

 

1. Terry Brock

2. Giant

3. Strangeways

 

The Strangeways was really a pretty pointless release, but the Giant CD turned out to be something pretty damn good.

I agree on the Terry Brock solo - brilliant album....I rated it far higher than you guys, cos truth be told it was one of the few albums in 2010 which had no filler. No mention of 'Broken'?? One of the best tracks on the whole album IMO.

 

Also, Stangeways was a big disappointment....esp in the prodcution department, however having witnessed 3 or 4 of these songs live I have to say that 'Time' is a stunning ballad, and is up there with the best songs that they have written (not recorded!). Live this song was nothing short of sensational and was the BEST song they played!

 

Cheers
