Ashamed to say that I, as an avid rock fan (especially of 70's/80's/90's bands), had somehow failed to pick up FM on the radar all these years. Read a review in Classic Rock recently and bought the album (CD - full price). What can I say. Well maybe that there is some tosh written here about a certain lack of sparkle and a failure to move on etc. Forget all that. This is an album of top class songs, musicianship and vocal dexterity. Rare to find an album with no real fillers but this is it. Reminiscent of Def Leppard, , Whitesnake, Thunder, Bryan Adams, Bon Jovi, Thin Lizzy and Free. I cannot recommend Metropolis highly enough. Thanks FM - you've brightened up my Ipod.
