Guy – Teddy’s Jam: 4
There is a fine instrumental here, but somehow the way these guys and their backing vocalist keep saying "jam" over and over, becomes tedious rather quickly, to the point that these three and a half minute feel much too long to me.

TLC – Red Light Special: 5
I only know TLC for their hits, which I like, but this ballad doesn't strike me as something special.

Thanks, Miles. It were indeed The Stones last year. A funny coincidence, although I do like to compare my life to the British Invasion (despite not being from the UK, but that's a detail).

Fish – A Gentleman’s Excuse Me: 4
I enjoy prog from time to time, but why are ballads usually their worst efforts? There is something too polished and clean about this to convince me of the emotion.

That album cover is something else though:

Even in a genre obsessed with fantasy themes this attempt at an actual genre movie poster is... Ridiculous beyond words, but I absolutely love it.

One of the things I love most about music is how it can affect people different ways. I actually consider this one of the most emotional songs I've ever heard. I can count on one hand the number of songs that actually make me choke up, but the final line gets me every time I hear this one, which I've always interpreted as being about him leaving a fragile lover because she refuses to stop living in the fantasy world she's created. I always wonder what happened to her. Maybe I relate somehow.

Those feelings aside, I didn't expect it to do well. I find the melody beautiful but not especially original, so if someone doesn't connect with it lyrically the way I have, there isn't much there. I do always enjoy reading your honest reviews though, Rob. And at least you enjoyed the album cover! :P

I can't see any reason why you wouldn't draw similarities between your life and the British invasion, that's a perfectly logical comparison to make :D

Ozzy Osbourne – No More Tears: 7
A lot better. It still misses some of the texture and character of Black Sabbath, but all in all this is a very enjoyable heavy metal song.

Kind of hard to define. Didn't like it at all at first listen, but it has grown on me after three tries. Maybe it'll grow more.

I thought I had these guys figured, but never would have guessed they would try their hands at the Beach Boys sound. It works, a bit.
