Duncan - That’s a typo on the month, right?

Oops, duly edited, it was too early on a Saturday for me, thanks for pointing it out! smile

Hope you manage to get one on Friday! Make sure you arrive early. Then when you get it, you can head back to the car, listen to it in full and then return to see the band. You may even be able to sing the words of the new songs as they are played! LOL

I’ve already heard most of it twice - at Chislehurst and Sutton and it is very good (live -leastways).

I always get the boy to sign mine - I forgot to ask him at Sutton if we could pre-order a signed copy, I was too busy looking for a pen for him to sign Upside Down for a friend I took along who is a new convert.

The real question is can I wait ‘til Dingwalls?

Not a chance! It will be interesting to know if the new album will be available for legal download from sites such as Itunes, emusic and Amazon. That way you could listen to the album over the next few months and then buy a physical copy the next time to see Ayns.

I wonder if Rachie could find out this for us?

I thought I was the first to pre-order Equilibrium. I am desperately hoping it arrives tomorrow so I can listen to it on my way to the gig at Swindon tomorrow night. As I said before totally new venue for me Bar 12, so should be interesting in more than one. Will let everyone know what I think on Friday.

I have just got the new album in the post today and am listening to it now!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Its really different, its like all the past influences have been buried and its a style all of its own.  However only on track 3

Same, got the album today.  Overall I’m very impressed.

Particular favourites at the moment (although there will undoubtedly be more) are the acoustic cover of Gnarls Barkley’s “Crazy” and the epic “What’s It All About”.  Shame that track fades out though, would have liked a better ending…  Also, The last track on the album “Hurricane” is very good.

Nice to see “Running Out On Me” finally recorded after only being available for so long on the Live! album.  And a very good one it is too!  However, still no studio recording of “Snake”...  WHYYYYYYYYYYYYY???????

Oh and yes, the style had broadened out very much.  If you think “All Or Nothing” was just 2 (proper) albums ago, you could almost think Aynsley’s a different artist altogether.  It took me a while to get used to “Upside Down” because that showed some definite changes, and now even more so with the new album though.  However, this isn’t a bad thing in my view!  If anything, it’s going to broaden Aynsley’s appeal, and hopefully help him break through to decent recognition…..

No BB it did not turn up before the Swindon gig, but Aynsley has copies to sell at gigs now.
It was waitng on the mat for me when I got home this afternoon. Was listening to it whilst I wrote about the Swindon gig last night. As has been mentioned it is yet another slight change of direction but maybe not a bad thing.
Overall first impression of whole album 8 out of 10

Hiya - just a quick note - if anyone does want me to try and get info it’s always better to PM me as I get a notification that someone is after me - although I do check in regularly we look after in excess of 60 sites so it can go a week or two before I see it and if it’s been busy on the forums (like recently) I don’t always see all the new posts smile

I got back from a couple of days away to find a copy of the album on the table as well so I’ll be having a listen myself tomorrow

Finished album now and still think its great only after the first listen.  I normally take a few goes to form an opinion of a new album but with this one…..

Unfortunately I will have to wait a few months to see the new band because there are no gigs down my way.  The year is still new, though so there is plenty of time

Yes, its a really good album, mine came yesterday! Stand outs for me include the great guitar work on What Its All About (which we knew about), Soul and Forever have great commerical appeal, Sugar Low is a great Rory Gallagher style rocker and Hurricane is superb.  Running On Empty, Crazy and Early Morning Dew stand out too. Running Out On Me and The Big Sleep are pretty guitar heavy, whilst on other tracks such as Time’s Up, the vocals are a little higher in the mix than we’d be used on on previous albums. There’s even an epic sound to a couple of tracks. Need to listen to it more, but tts looking certainly like at least 8/10 for me too at this early stage! smile
