Thanks for stopping by the house of GLORYDAZE Music. We're into melodic rock and AOR in a big way! If you don't know what AOR is, then you're probably at the wrong website. Anyone with a modicum of rock music knowledge going back to the lazy days of the late 60's and into the 70's up until the current day will surely feel at home here. With an excess of 5000 album reviews in the system, there is something here for the hard rock fan, prog rock supporter, or heavy metal fiend! Have a look around, and feel free to register if you want to contribute to the website, or drop us a comment or two. Cheers.. GDM

Goble, Graham (Encounter) - 1993 Nautilus

ARTIST: Goble, Graham (Encounter)
ALBUM: Nautilus
LABEL: Castle Communications
YEAR: 1993


LINEUP: Graham Goble - guitars, keyboards, bass, keyboards, programming * Steve Wade - vocals * Stephen Housden - lead guitar * John Barrett - saxophones

TRACK LISTING: 01 I Can't Eat, Can't Sleep * 02 Til Tonight * 03 Full Circle * 04 She Tells You, You Tell Me * 05 Addicted To You * 06 You Never Cry * 07 I've Been Broken * 08 Into The Silence * 09 My Hearts Desire * 10 It's Over, At Last

Let's take a rare excursion into ex Little River Band guitarist Graham Goble's solo career. As with his previous outfit, the material here is as melodic as it comes. Graham plays nearly all of the instruments, though gets some specific help from the gifted singer Steve Wade. plus fellow LRB guitar slinger Stephen Housden. The songs on 'Nautilus' have been given the superlative production 'treatment'. Airy, full of atmosphere, and musical drama. 'Exquisite' is a good choice of word I think, with the whole thing produced in Graham's own studios in Melbourne. You can detect that Graham has spent many hours getting this album 'just right' and it shows.

The Songs
The musical arrangements on their own would sound great, but with Wade adding his John Farnham/Jack Jones (Southern Sons) flavoured vocals, the songs literally spring to life. 'Can't Sleep Can't Eat' is a bright start to the album, happy and uplifting. 'Full Circle' is a stop/start affair, with staccato keyboard passages through the middle, while the pairing of 'Into The Silence' and 'My Hearts Desire' are ensconsed in the land of AOR, the latter in particular is a superb track. Two 'must listen to' tracks are the lyrical anguish of 'She Tells You, You Tell Me' (a song about cheating and lying), and the subtle drama of 'You Never Cry', a song about relationship struggles. Both tracks despite the lyrical content, are gloriously rich arrangement-wise.

In Summary
Any follower of quality melodic rock would do well to invest some time trying to track down Goble's albums. 'Nautilus' and the 'Stop' album two years later, (again featuring Wade and Housden), are both worthwhile acquistions to your collection.
