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 - 1995 Stop

ARTIST: Goble, Graham
LABEL: Bellaphon
SERIAL: 290.07.222
YEAR: 1995


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

TRACK LISTING: 01 Two Emotions * 02 Dressed To The Best * 03 Stop * 04 Please Don't Ask Me * 05 Crazy Over You * 06 Magic Timeframe * 07 The Waiting Game * 08 For The Love Of You * 09 Wanted * 10 Time And Eternity

Nice to see one of the mainstays from the Little River band (LRB) find his niche in the melodic rock world, and in true accomplished style too! Goble, along with stalwarts Beeb Birtles, Glenn Shorrock, Derek Pellici etc really was a rock icon in Australia for many years. With LRB's changing of the guard through the years, Goble moved his focus into production, and has so far released some rather great stuff while on his own. The LRB connection is quite strong with contributions from ex and current members. Goble released his 'Nautilus' album in 1993, and it was a great atmospheric slice of melodic rock, with well produced keys and programming, and vocals from the rather awesome Steve Wade. If you heard songs like 'Til Tonight', 'She Tells You.. You Tell Me', and 'You Never Cry' you'll understand the atmospheric tag. The tradition continues with this album 'Stop' released two years on (funnily enough on a German label). The style is pretty much the same as the predecessor album 'Nautilus', well crafted melodic rock with strong hi-tech influences and a hint of accoustic guitar coming through as well.

The Songs
Preceedings kick off with the AOR anthem 'Two Emotions', bringing back immediate memories of LRB circa 'Playing To Win'. Most awesome. In fact, LRB do their own version of this very song on their 1990 album 'Get Lucky'. Things funk up a bit in a hi-tech sort of way with 'Dressed To The Best'. Next up is the title track 'Stop', an AOR accoustic/organ flavoured workout. The harmony vocals on this song have to be heard to be believed! Steve Wade sings his proverbial a*** off on this one. Stunning to say the least. 'Please Don't Ask Me' heads off in a direction similar to Alfie Zappacosta's 'Quick Don't Ask Any Questions' album from 1991, a sort of modern AOR jazz number. It works though. We kick into hi-tech overdrive with 'Magic Time Frame', with drum machines keeping the high stepping beat together, while radio friendly AOR reappears in the form of 'For The Love Of You' and 'Wanted', the latter has a seventies feel to it, similar to early LRB material or Al Stewart and is quite nice though perhaps slightly out of sync with the rest of the album. We finish off with perhaps the most AOR track on the album, the pulsing 'Time And Eternity', where all the great names of melodic rock appear in the space of three minutes! Pick the comparions on this one!! You'll have a field day.

In Summary
Great production, strong and interesting songs, and that voice ... Just to note, Steve Wade has also sung with LRB.

New Pink FLoyd is great for me and a nice Tribute to Richard Wright. All instrumental except one track, but some lovely stuff. I notice most of the reviews either like, or dislike with not much middle

I almost bought it yesterday, but stopped myself. Not sure if I'm interested based on a few reviews I've read... hmm!
