Any fan of the 70's era will testify to the emergence of glam rock..a very different musical style that, while emulating alot of the rock values, was a mix of R&B, Rock & Roll, and something entirely unique; British Folk.....not true Rock. Personally, I think that it's an insult to call them a true rock band because it insinuates that they are sell-outs and they most definately are not. I hope that some of those people out there that are calling this music "True Rock" are simply doing so out of naivete.
I must agree with alot of your enthusiasm as I am a long time fan of the band and I must say that I am very glad to see that they are finding a real identity with this cd. This includes you Joy...and I'm sorry that I was too difficult for you to understand...it's really OK...are we still buddies?
