    Now that's my kind of playlist! The Frederiksen disc is great if you like that ultra-polished, ultra-wimpy Frontiers AOR. Not much rocking going on, but if you dig Survivor and Toto you'll probably love it. Same with the new Kimball-Jamison and Mecca discs.

    EDIT - The new Frederiksen is way better than Equilibrium, for whatever that's worth.

    Justin.....yup. I'm all about the Frontiers catalogue - I love "METAL" as much as the next guy or gal, but I'm also a huge softie for the AOR/melodic rock scene as well!!

    I just ordered The Magnificent and the Fergie Frederikson discs.......look forward to hearing them both.

    Maybe I'm just a hopeless cynic, but that F&TM video seemed like a grab at a Kate Bush/Tori Amos vibe, but with neither the sophistication nor conviction. The female-fronted art rock landscape is such a wasteland. Somewhere Tracy Hitchings is kicking back with quiet satisfaction that despite only modest acclaim, she did it better than 99.9% of the others.

    Err, in the spirit of not hijacking the thread completely....

    Fates Warning - Parallels
    Warrant - Dirty Rotten Filthy Stinking Rich
    Warren Zevon - Excitable Boy
    TSO - Beethoven's Last Night
    JS Bach - Brandenburg Concertos Nos. 4, 5, and 6
