FM (UK) - 1986 Indiscreet
Light and breezy AOR, and surprising poppy for this South London band. However, the FM band direction came about due to the obvious success of the harder melodic rock acts such as Europe, Def Leppard, Bon Jovi.

FM (UK) - 1989 Tough It Out
Neil Kernon, fresh his exploits with Queensryche, would join the production team for 'Tough It Out', and thereby the instant appeal of 'Indiscreet' would be replaced for a harder edged version of AOR. Still loads of gorgeous songs, offset by some (err hmm) 'tougher' songs as well.

FM (UK) - 2003 Long Time No See (3CD)
Long time fans of UK favorites are gonna be overjoyed at this latest Triple Pack effort from Escape Music.

FM (UK) - 2010 Metropolis
I can't recommend this more, it's one of the best releases so far in an unusually above average year for melodic rock. A real triumph for the veterans.

FM (UK) - 2013 Rockville
This album came out in March, and no one here has written about it yet, which makes me believe this batch of songs did not make a spectacular impression on a few of you. If you were hoping for another 'Indiscreet' or 'Tough It Out', I can understand. If you liked where they went with 'Metropolis', then this should suit you well.

FM (UK) - 2013 Rockville II
As is the case with 'Rockville', this won't scratch the itch for those who want another 'Indiscreet' or 'Tough It Out'. But if you enjoyed 'Metropolis', and you like your AOR served with some rhythm & blues and a touch of country, you should enjoy this. I sure do.

FM (UK) - 2014 Futurama [ep]
'Futurama' follows a path of previous EP releases going back some twenty years. Steve Overland describes it as their most successful EP yet, and who would disagree with the Guvnor?! Add this neat little CD to the FM collection why don't you.

FM (UK) - 2015 Heroes And Villains
If you enjoyed the 'Rockville' albums two years ago, then I am sure you'll eat this up. Even if you found them to be hit or miss, I'm betting you'll find this to be more hit. Again, it's not what they were doing in the 80's, but it's where they are now, and where they are now is a pretty darn good place near the top of the melodic rock scene.

FM (UK) - 2018 Atomic Generation
It looks like being a busy 2018 for British melodic rockers FM. They get the year underway with their eleventh album 'Atomic Generation'.
