I do think I liked that last song Never Surrender the best so far after listening to it properly.

I'm squarely on the fence here if I want to preorder this or not.  It does sound really good, the songs seem very well put together and the singer can definitely sing.  It just doesn't seem to have the same sort of melodic hard rock edge that is where my tastes normally lie and while it sounds good, not sure it'll really blow me away.

That said though, part of me still finds myself kind of liking it if I'm in the right mood.

I agree, the last track was definitely the one that pulled my chain the most......may be a pretty good album when finished.......I'm sitting on 50/50 right now

I think I'm gonna pre-order....Only $10 with free shipping on Amazon so not a bad deal. 

Read a few reviews and all have been pretty positive.  I saw one reviewer say there weren't any ballads and the first single was the most "ballad" song.  And supposed to be a few pretty good melodic rockers outside the songs we've heard.

The vocalist definitely can sing and songs are well written with some obvious good musicianship.  If there was a bit more edge it would be a no brainer.

It's one that could easily go either way for me but I don't see too much coming down the pipe the next month or two so figure I'll give it a try.  Right now my rotation is Shiraz Lane, Maverick, Station and Dangerous Curves so maybe it'll strike a chord being different than those.

Agree!  Might be my favorite yet.

Reviews I've seen on this have all been glowing and the more I hear, the more I like.

I think I'm off the fence now :)

Listened to this and wow, pretty impressed.

Really solid melodic rock album.  I'm not sure they made a great choice putting out In & Out Of Love as the first single as it gave me the perception that this was going to be a very lite AOR album.  Basically that song is the closest thing to a ballad on the whole album.  

It's mostly just full of upbeat melodic melodic rock songs full of hooks, great vocals and some cool riffs/musicianship.  I think an album it sort of reminds me of stylistically is Harem Scarem's United in terms of just being a solid melodic rock album with some 80's vibes but still sounding modern and not copycat or cheesy.  However, there's a couple songs here though that feel like they could be perfect songs for like an 80's movie or something.

Good stuff though and would say the last two songs above (Never Surrender and Stone Cold Lover) are more representative of the album than the first two songs (In & Out Of Love and Gone Too Far).

One listen in and a lot of potential here. Played this and ISSA this morning. This is the one that'll be getting more plays today. 

Another album with a song reminiscing about the 80s. Something of a trend.

Finally got my actual CD and really liking this too....just good, solid throwback melodic rock and pretty catchy stuff.  I quite like Bad City Woman, Stone Cold Lover, What Goes Around and Never Surrender.  

Nothing wrong with any of the other songs either though.  The singer can definitely sing and there is some good musicianship and production going on throughout.   

I'd say this will surely be in my top 10.

It's not a perfect album, but it's okay. Pretty patchy, but I do love 'In And Out Of Love,' 'Never Surrender' and 'Heaven In Your Eyes.' Nice sound and a great voice.

I kind of agree.  

I do like the album a lot and no denying it sounds fantastic.  

For me, it's the kind of album that's enjoyable to listen to but at the same time doesn't really get my blood pumping or get me pounding on the car dashboard.  I still find myself wishing they mixed in a little more edge on a song or two.

I do really like Stone Cold Lover and Never Surrender, with What Comes Around, Too Late and In & Out Of Love not far behind.  And Bad City Woman isn't too bad.  There's a couple songs I find myself sort of glossing over a bit and really don't care much for the 1985 song.

Overall, it's good though and top 10 material.   For me though, it's a long ways behind stuff like Shiraz Lane, W.e.t and Maverick that I'm really digging and gets my juices flowing :headbanger:

Listening to in full at my desk at work. Very enjoyable album. Hints of Rev. Saints here and there for me.

    • Every time I listen to Firehouse I ask, "Why can't all drums sound like this?" ;}
    • I love between the devil and the deep blue sea , like the debut and the follow up , like parts of the last album and absolutely hate the new one , they have gone full on blues rock it would seem which is not for me , great band live though
    • on the subject of Blessthefall , I absolutely love that new album 
    • Birds of prey is my pick from the album , like be legendary too and don't mind a few others
    • It was their first ever tour of Australia which is weird in itself. $100 is pretty steep but I guess normal as it ain't cheap to get over here. Anyway, it was a fairly basic show.
      Big backdrop curtain, and that was the only stage prop.
      All dressed in black, no wardrobe changes etc.
      Good long show overall.
      2 x 1 hour sets and the venue enabled a good view from anywhere.
      Joey took time to walk through the crowd during Superstitious which I guess is appropriate in that song (not worried about crazy fans)
      A couple of crowd singalongs which weren't too long so that was ok

      Other than that they were a fairly basic set up "stripped down" if you like
      I kinda had warped expectations having seen the old Final Countdown etc film clips with fireworks etc

      As for the setlist Walk the Earth
      The Siege
      Rock the Night
      (With snippet of ”Whole Lotta Rosie” by AC/DC)
      Scream of Anger
      Danger on the Track
      Firebox
      Sign of the Times
      Vasastan
      Girl From Lebanon
      Open Your Heart
      War of Kings
      Heart of Stone
      Days of Rock 'n' Roll
      Superstitious

      Second Set
      Ready or Not
      Last Look at Eden
      Hole in My Pocket
      Seven Doors Hotel
      Carrie
      Turn to Dust
      Drum Solo
      Stormwind
      Prisoners in Paradise
      GTO
      Let the Good Times Rock

      Encore:
      Cherokee
      The Final Countdown Missing songs for me
      I'll Cry For You
      Just The Beginning - would have thought that this would have been the perfect song to end set 1...
      Halfway To Heaven
      Talk To Me
      On Broken Wings
      Always The Pretenders
      New Love In Town
      Bag Of Bones

      I know everyone has a different opinion, but I'm not sure the crowd as a whole really appreciated most of the newer stuff.
      They missed quite a few singles which was a bit weird given their first tour of Oz. (almost as weird a Cheap Trick not playing The Flame when I saw them)

      But overall it was a good show. I would have regretted not seeing it. Not as much as I regret missing the Dr Feelgood tour, but still regretted it I guess. 
    • While I agree with your overall premise about quality studio productions, I'm with Glen on a band like Blessthefall not being able to reproduce their sound live.  Just about everything has an artificial aspect to it on the studio recording.  I am not saying they sound bad live it just isn't going to sound like the album even if they pump in some additional sound and effects.   
    • Where you off to Geoff?
      I fly out to Thailand on the 14th
