I know right?  To each their own I guess. I love it as much as the previous albums.

Yep, and like I said, I've tried pretty hard to really like it.
Just nothing stands out for me.

In a way, the same as how ACDC can no longer make any music that grabs me.
 

I guess you could say that I see Monumentum as pretty much all filler...

WOW. To not think an album is great is one thing, but to say you feel the whole album(10 to 11) songs to be ALL filler???  Wow again!

OK< I probably shouldn't have said 'filler'

To me they are just generic songs. Nothing spectacular, nothing I haven't heard before, and (for me) lacking that 'it' factor 

When I add them to my best of folder, only 2 or 3 songs will make it.

I know my comment would not be popular, but different strokes....
I can see how others here like it. I don't dislike it per se'

it's not a case of being popular or not. 

nothing released in 2017 was different or new. in 40 odd years of listening to rock music I've heard it all.

it just depends on how well it's done.

Eclipse are nothing new but they do write some mighty anthems and I just struggle to understand how someone who frequents this site doesn't like them.

also is it that different to what came before? not really. just more of the same

Simply. For me it was blander.

Like I said before, I compare to ACDC.
We went from amazing individual songs to recent albums where the music wasn't bad, just nothing that stands out.
Of like all the ACDC type bands around.
I love Dangerous Toys, and I excitedly bought the Broken Teeth album when it came out. Damn disappointing, because it was boring.

Maybe I would have liked Monumentum more if they had more varied material on it.

I get what you're saying about not being that different from past releases, but that stuff to me was hookier and a bit more varied.

I see Million Miles Away as x3 any song on Monumentum.

well I still rate Ready To Rock as their best album.

everything since has been re-hashed albeit very well. 

personally I don't think new album is bland. Most of the songs are just what i like these days.

could do without that silly Eden song tho ;)

I cannot relate to that song at all. no idea what it's about and the lyrics are shite. one of their worst songs imo

New version, or just an acoustic version? Sounds like the latter to me. 

Either way, best song on the album. Sounds nice acoustic too.

Okay version....I prefer the original though as it was among my favorites on the album.  I do like how they labeled it the "sellout version" lol.

Speaking of this album, just pulled it out earlier this week for a listen and still digging it.  I do hope they add a little more variety on the next album but it's still excellent stuff.

This should have  been  in the Japanese  cd version of the album instead of the acoustic version of Downfall Of Eden 😒
