    Hhmm, I’d rather they just redid “No Worries” then stealing MLJ’s “Texas State Of Mind” as I can’t see any reason for that, must have run out of material or something. That’s quite a surprise to see.

    The promo hasn’t arrived yet, but we’re within a short time here of a full review.

    I’m a little sceptical about it !?
    Ian said in a interview, were he talked about the new album, that it’s going to be very similar to the albums:
    “Accidentally On Purpose” and “Dreamcatcher”.
    If I can say (as a very huge Gillan fan, i’ve even met him)that those albums were very pale moments in Gillan’s whole carrier. Frankly i don’t like those albums, because of the fact that there wasn’t so much Rock/Blues influence (except maybe in the song “I Can’t Dance to That”. Many of you will not agree with me, but that’s only my opinion.
    Than again i’m also looking forward to hear the whole new album with brand new songs.

    This is quite exciting.I think it’s good to release a different type of album as a solo project. “Accidently on Purpose” is a great album, “Dreamcatcher” is not, because it feels like a demo.
    I hop this will be adventurous, well played, well sung and well produced. looking forward to this!

    Oz McErwan says:

    Yeah! Ian Gillan does very different kind of things, and in my opinion, there’s always a thing in it which is very pleasant. I’ve never heard to something he sang which was really crap.

    I’m happy he tries everything, he’s a real artist, not just limited on one thing!

    But I know it’s my opinion and after a few years living, I’ve realised, that a lot of person won’t agree with it. Despite, I hope every fan will love Gillan’s work!

    Have a good day!

    One thing it has going for itself automatically, is that Nick Blagona produced it, and he is brilliant.

    Accidentally is wonderful…
    Dreamcatcher is rubbish…
    don’t know what to expect…
    I hope for a masterpiece…
    I would read a review as soon as possible…

    I’m 100% sure that there will be a lot of great stuff here. He is in a class of his own.

    Sami says:

    You’re right Bo, IG is in a class of his own…Looking forward to the album, I just hope that they’ve paid attention to the overall sound a bit more this time, ’cause too many Gillan solo releases suffer from bad sound/mix. Don’t know why that is, with that experience under his/their belt they should do better…maybe it’s a budget thing.

    Roberto says:

    Who cares about sound mix / production??
    what is important are the compositions…
    a good song remain a good song even with bad production
    a bad song remain a bad song even with good production
    I think Gillan understood his faults in ‘dreamcathcer’…

  11. 11
    Sami says:

    I agree with you Roberto that the compositions are the core of any album, but shitty sound does take away something, doesn’t it, from the listening pleasure anyway, and if a product is made in a hurry the results are often disappointing.

    I hope that IG is going to deliver an album far better than Dreamcatcher, we’ll see.

    Take care Roberto, Kippis

    AndreA says:

    I agree,infact as example
    “Born Again” was made with a bad production but it remains
    a great evil super work! unforgetable,unmissable..

    Sami says:

    Funny you mentioned that, was just listening Born Again the other day, AndreA…
    superb, the Ozzy-era Sabbath doesn’t even come close!

    Be well mate, cheers

    Hope, the new stuff sounds a little like the Gillans Inn production – style… love this record !

    @ Sami

    IG’s two latest releases are two of the best ever produced in his catalog by far.
    Gillan’s Inn may not have proven so for you, especially if you only listened to the stereo side of the dual disc. The DVD side in 5.1 is a top production, cosmic in fact… light years better mixing and production than heard on the stereo side, for obvious reasons… the stereo side was only included for those without surround systems to witness the great DVD. You’re right, in most cases it IS a “budget thing” and in the case of the last two, the budget was not spared. Both Immergent and Westwood One spent the money it takes to pull off excellent productions, neither held back a dime.

    The Live In Anaheim DVD has got to be the best sounding live document I’ve ever heard production-wise, it’s AWESOME SOUNDING! The most even mix I can think of in a long time.
    Both of these were produced by NB, just as “OETM” was, along with engineering Perfect Strangers and the two that followed.
    One eare this album will not suffer is in the production dept, which will be a great stretch from the ‘Dreamcatcher’ mess.

    Sami says:

    CG : Good, valid points. I’m not a sound expert, nor do I automatically praise everything IG does, I just know what I like. Gillan’s Inn is a great production, as well as Live in Anaheim…been enjoying them both immensely. Dreamcatcher and ie. Cherkazoo are a different matter though.

    Cheers

    Roberto says:

    Yes , last albums have a good production, but my fear is to listen bad songs as the ones on dreamcatcher…
    Born Again is an underrated masterpiece…
    the title track is on my top ten of the best songs ever…

    Talking about solving issues with the production…..

    Does anybody think it s worth the money to invest in a ltd 2 cd disc STORMBRINGER?
    I m mainly interested in the ltd vinyl but perhaps I do miss out on something with the sound of the 2 cd disc?

    Btw, I do own a stereo system , not a 5.1 setup or something

    Crimson Ghost says:

    As a collectors item alone I recommend it, but I’ll be buying it myself now that I know the 5.1 factor has actually been remastered from the quadro reels and not simply duplicated… Glenn Hughes on ‘Holy Man’ should be a vast audio improvement in the vocal department on that.
    Funny thing though, it’s by no means going to actually be 5.1, it’s still 4.0 quadrophonic, they just encode it for 5.1 systems, which is massively unnecessary if you ask me… it will still only play out of four speaker channels, not five w/sub. An effort I have yet to understand, seems like a waste of time and money for no effect whatsoever to match the mix advertised, and people continue to fake this a channel, sometimes even two, with old recordings.

    I don’t have the Friday remaster so I won’t be comparing the stereo portion, but any remaster is better than the last if taken proper care in doing so.

    Friday remaster?

    The remaster made by that black chappy friend of Crusoe on an island?

    Only Robinson Crusoe had everything done by Friday……………………..

    George says:

    Having just listened to some songs from One Eye To Morocco, I must say that this album, with it’s ABSOLUTELY AMAZING title-track is a masterpiece.

    And what about Live In Anaheim, this album shows us Gillan rocking, as he rocked many many years ago. The band is brilliant, and Gillan…. In the 2000’s, I’ve never listened to Ian Gillan, singing and screaming so powerfully. Live In Anaheim is the live album of the real rocker and rock’s greatest vocalist. superb…

    Thank You Sami..

    well but I love the OzzY’s era,there are different approaches to the music,nothing more…

    In ozzY’s era perhaps there were just more drugs than after…
    But gillan with his tequila gave as a wonderful masterpiece..

    🙂

    ciao Sami!

    i am a huge fan of IG since almost 40 years ago with DP, and collecting any Gillan solo album which always tempting me to have it. SCARABUS and TOOLBOX albums are the best in my ear.
