There are copyright issues with posting reviews from other sites here in their entirety. SInce there is still no interest in this album on the PA in terms reviewing I have been turning a blind eye to this, but that's not going to get me or M@X out of gaol when the Feds come calling.

Unless there is a disclaimer ... but even that probably should be in writing?
 
I can understand your concern, and that is the reason why many times I post in the bottom of my reviews and writings my copyright notice and that I have given permission for it to be shown at PA.
 
At this time, the whole Copyright thing is a mess ... and it is there to hurt the artists right now, and the music companies to gain a victory. There are more starving bands that could use the extra nickel than there are fools that use lawyers to steal money from folks that don't have it! I would expect that Sherry is familiar with those things having been around these folks for a long time!
... none of the hits, none of the time ... you might actually find your own art, or self, and forego lousy heroes or Guru's!

I think you mean "the only good radio these days".
 
I'll be ordering my copy this week.
Trust me. I know what I'm doing.

You're absolutely right. That's exactly what I meant.  Just didn't want to offend.  But all I listen to is NPR/college stations or an oldies station—which gets boring!

Let us know how you like the new CD.

Don't know how I forgot to post this one from "Classic Rock Radio" in England.  They also did a Flash interview which they'll be broadcasting soon. 

Okay, I just found it.  Sorry, I did post it, but forgot to mention the interview.  I'll post when it's going to be broadcast.

Still no progarchive.com reviewers?

My favorite local store (where I prefer to buy music when I can) has a few copies, but not near me.
They have some more on order, so it may be a few days before I get mine.

American Songwriter Mag interviewed Colin about "Hurt" and sets the record straight...(permission granted to reproduce here)

Nine Inch Nails, “Hurt”

Written by Rick Moore June 17th, 2013 at 6:00 am

Trent_Reznor1

On 1994’s Nine Inch Nails album The Downward Spiral, Trent Reznor’s song “Hurt” came from a dark place that many of us, whether through the pain of addiction or just through life’s circumstances, will visit at some point in our lives. With lines like “I hurt myself today/to see if I still feel/I focus on the pain/the only thing that’s real,” Reznor’s song fit in perfectly with the title of the album, whether he initially meant for it to or not. “Hurt” was nominated for a Grammy for “Best Rock Song” in 1996.

But in 2002 the song took a different path when Johnny Cash covered it on American IV: The Man Comes Around, the final Cash album before his death. Cash recorded “Hurt,” and shot the award-winning video that accompanied it, only months before wife June Carter Cash’s death and then his own. The video montage chronicled the career of a man who suffered grievous loss and pain in his life, but managed to hang on to the very end with the power of his music and the love of his wife.

The song has also been covered by Leona Lewis, Sevendust and other acts, and has now surfaced on Flash – Featuring Ray Bennett and Colin Carter, the new album by the 1970s British progressive rock band that once included the former, and recently deceased, Yes guitarist Peter Banks. Flash frontman Colin Carter says that when the band was looking for a song to cover, “Hurt” found new life in Flash’s nine-and-a-half-minute prog arrangement without any difficulty.

“I knew when I first heard the Johnny Cash version of ‘Hurt’ that its mood and structure and lyric would work for me,” Carter says. “I began singing it in my own fashion even before hearing Mr. Reznor’s take on it, his starker delivery. I borrowed his structure and his lyrics, gave a nod to Mr. Cash’s formalization of the piece, then painted it with my own spray can.”

Reznor’s original lyric contains the line I wear this crown of sh*t/upon my liar’s chair, but Cash changed the line to crown of thorns, perhaps in an effort to both remove the profanity and reference his own life as a damaged, but devout, Christian. Lewis followed suit with her version, as does Flash. “I think ‘thorns’ produces a stronger mental image than Trent’s ‘sh*t,’” Carter says. “But Trent is the master of the work and his is the anchor point we all work from.”

Reznor may never have thought about anyone else covering this song, especially given the frame of mind he must have been in when he wrote it. But it is becoming a classic of sorts, and will probably be covered again, though maybe not by someone as unlikely as a country music icon or a legendary British prog-rock band.

If you should happen to go surfing for the lyrics yourself, be careful, as the Internet is sometimes not always the best source of information. For instance, the LyricsFreak website mistakenly credits Reznor’s lyrics to Linda Perry, Christina Aguilera and Mark Ronson, because Aguilera also cut a song called “Hurt.”

“Hurt”

I hurt myself today
To see if I still feel
I focus on the pain
The only thing that’s real
The needle tears a hole
The old familiar sting
Try to kill it all away
But I remember everything

What have I become?
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know
Goes away in the end
You could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

I wear my crown of thorns
On my liar’s chair
Full of broken thoughts
I cannot repair
Beneath the stain of time
The feeling disappears
You are someone else
I am still right here

What have I become?
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know
Goes away in the end
You could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

If I could start again
A million miles away
I would keep myself
I would find a way

You may have obtained permission for republishing the article, but not for Reznor's lyric, please remove most of the verses.

I checked this with Ray. I won't give you his direct quote, but this was his answer in substance:  Flash paid for licensing rights to use the song and it's lyrics in any way they want.  

I'm sure Trent will be pleased to see them correctly quoted by Rick Moore and American Songwriters Magazine, and the song properly attributed to him for a change.

You can download "Night Vision," another track from the new Flash CD for free, courtesy of Purple Pyramid/Cleopatra Records. 

They've just released a prog sampler of five tracks from their artists, Nektar, Flash, The Prog Collective, Circa and Nik Turner.


and look for this poster to order your copy...

Visit the new flash facebook page to follow all the latest news, gigs, music samples, chat, photos, history, (posts from the great and comical Willie Fyffe, former Flash roadie extraordinaire!), etc.  

Ask questions, share Flash stories, info, requests, complaints (did I say complaints?).  

The band will be watching and participating.

Listen to two Flash tracks courtesy of MLWZ radio in Poland from yesterday's broadcast (6/19).  Click "audio" in the left-hand column.


And a review...in Polish.  It's making me nervous that I'm actually beginning to understand google translate!


And make sure you join the new Flash facebook fun.  Visit, "Like"  'em, and talk to the band.

Check out the alternate cover art considered for the new CD.  T
he band posted it on their facebook page.  It's not this Flash logo at the top of the page...  


Scroll down the page to find the alternate cover and tell us which one you like better.
