Better cover artwork than the latest (God give mercy on that generic font logo), still I can't see how this would make a great tee... And on gildan/Fruit Of The Loom brands...:puke:Gawd, I miss the 80's... (Thankfully not my white Cry wolf tee I'm sporting  now) :crying:

Nice track list, for what it's worth. Except 'Lets have fun tonight,' lol, but I bet they make a gem out of it. ;)

I've mentioned this before, and my stance has not changed.  I really enjoyed their debut, but it's been downhill for me since.

Yowser. Interesting view. I think 'What The Hell' and 'Stereo Messiah' are far better albums than their debut.

First song released from the new album.

From Frontiers:

NEW SONG ALERT: VEGA will release their new album, ONLY HUMAN on May 11, 2018! Today, we are pleased to present the first track, "Last Man Standing" from the album. Turn it up and ENJOY!

"Only Human" is the fifth studio album by UK melodic rock stalwarts VEGA. The band self-produced the record but teamed up with legendary Canadian musician and producer Harry Hess (of Harem Scarem band) for the mixing and mastering to bring their fans another gem of a release.

"We wear our love of 80's rock music on our sleeves, but we also have injected our love of modern rock music to it. We aren't trying to rehash anything: the sound we have achieved is 100% VEGA. We didn't want to try and guess what people expect and get it wrong," says singer Nick Workman of the album.

I'm not sure what it is, exactly... I was a big supporter of the debut; turned several "old-school" friends of mine onto it (and yes, I have a several friends that are every bit as much stuck in the 80's as me when it comes to music). 

Everything just started trending down for me after the debut.  I know I'm in the minority... and I'm okay with that.

... Now, I actually like that new track (Last Man Standing) quite a bit!  Guitars are tuned standard rather than 3 steps down (like many "modern" tunes).

I love this quote:

    • Agree.   Still my favorite release this year also.  
    • Still playing this all the time Definitely my favourite melodic rock release this year so far
    • are we listening to the same song? the pre is pure Vega. I love it. And the chorus is great.  And the solo rules. You lost me on this one mate  I actually love the whole album start to finish. Not often I say that these days 
    • Isn't that you breaking your music rules?
      Allowing a song multiple listens to show its worth?

      😎
    • Airfare cast isn't the issue. These days you get to LA return with Air New Zealand from Melbourne for less then $100
      I Saw Melbourne to Athens today for like $650 or something with Scoot.

      For me it's the wasted time in the air.
      Spend a day to get somewhere, and a day to get back, I say you need at least 10 days on the ground to make it worthwhile.

    • I kinda disagree and agree with you on this. The disagreement is because overall it is not a terrible album and is by far not her worst (go listed to the two jazz albums and 2Preciious or whatever that band was called). And as for classic sound, she does not really have one as her sound evolved significantly over the years. She went from the rawer heavier stuff of her earliest albums to the slick radio friendly stuff like Some girls do, to a more modern "serious" album like Emotional rain. All very different. Now where I do agree with you is that it is nowhere near close to being up there with her best and the lyrics are bloody horrible. There were a couple of songs where I just wanted to shout at her to shut up. The lyrics actually sound at times like they were written by a 10 year old who had just formed their own band for the first time. (My babe being a particularly bad song lyrically.)   The album for me is listenable, but is not even a patch on her last one (which I know left fans divided).   I know having the word blues in the title was a giveaway she would be trying her hand at that style of music, but I did not expect the lyrics to give me the blues due to the horribleness.
