Actually 'Subject' was a prog album and a good one at that.

Rob, agree on the first 3, 'Subject' my favorite of the trio because it almost felt like a prog album but they are all great.

I thought some of theose New Aldo's Army Of Ghosts tunes sounded quite good, if you like a bit more Pop styled stuff. The choice of vocalists especially was good

Correct, Eric. Blood on the tracks was more of a poor man's Bon Jovi, but a 1000 times better than the new crap. His first three albums are freakin' awesome, though. A real fall from grace!

Well after all his legendary drug and booze forays- good for him, he's lucky to be alive i imagine. Rob, has Nova come up with a decent album since 'Twitch'. No.

Apparently Eric. I am on Aldo's FB page. Lots of Christian references coming thru..

Paul Godfrey Band went for $ 530 on Ebay. Must be going in a display case with Simon Says protected by armed guards. Surely it's too valuable for listening.

Goble, Graham (Encounter) - 1993 Nautilus





ARTIST: Goble, Graham (Encounter)
ALBUM: Nautilus
LABEL: Castle Communications
SERIAL: CSC 7100
YEAR: 1993

COUNTRY OF ORIGIN:

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


Background
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.
