    I have the first 3 albums, the re-masters of 2006, "Complete Works".....and the bonus tracks are pretty good. You get a recording of one of their first rehearsals on Phenomena II, which is cool.

    I happen to like Ray Gillen as vocalist, from Phenomena II, Dream Runner:

    Thank you, LG! :cheers2

    Some things, including music does require a pecking order! :oyea: It often is difficult to have enough time throughout the day to spin some, or perhaps all of those on the top of the "play me" pile! :lmao:

    That's cool, Magic! I didn't know about those bonus tracks on the re-masters. :grinthumb Emotion Mama is a terrific song, with a nice, catchy melody, imo! The combination of the excellent songwriting, great music and intriguing harmonies is one of the more interesting elements for me throughout all of the Phenomena albums, for me! :)

    I very much like Ray Gillen's vocals, and have a few albums of different bands that feature him. Badlands is also very good, and I've enjoyed for some time. :)

    Sunrise



    Touch my Life

    Although a rather unusual, imo, kind of name for an album with both loads of talented musicians, but perhaps a title more befitting of a Black Sabbath album :tongue:

    As with the previous Phenomena releases, Psychofantasy featured quite a variety of well known and very recognizable musicians, with many of them being quite successful, too.

    I was a little apprehensive about this album prior to buying it, but I was very impressed with the songs, music and variety of singing styles, as well as catchy melodies and tunes, too. With each time I listened to this album I enjoyed most of the songs quite a lot! :tup:

    :cheers2

    Phenomena are an awesome band. I have the first two and really enjoy both of them. I wasn't aware that they had released III or Psycho Fantasy until now.
    I am definitely on the look out for them both as of now.

    ^^^No guesses? ;) I was listening to this song some days ago and noticed in the booklet the singer is listed as Ray Gillen, but listening to the song, I'm not too certain about that. :confused:
