    Justin, no kidding about the Jorn cd. I've pretty much loved everything the guy does but this one was a huge disappiontment. Great voice, as always, but the songs just were not there this time around. Hope he rebounds on the next one.

    He has a dud here and there. I wish he'd take a little more time between releases. He's getting almost to the Axel Rudi Pell level.

    I'm not making a move until I get my copy of Paradox "Tales Of The Weird" next week. I've seen it on the net as a download, but I won't listen to a second of it 'til I have it in my hands. I know it'll be in my top 10 somewhere...
