    Rand Paul

    I think his father was a moderate. Anyways,after his neighbor beat the shit out of him he got the sympathy vote but I think it scrambles his brain
  4. I feel like Toby has a great voice but oversings and gets paired up with songs that sound more like showtunes. The result is always less than what he is capable of.
  5. Doesnt seem like anyone sincerely getting this at all, do you guys truly not understand, or you just being a wise ass?
  6. Today
  7. Another for the list of purchases for me
  8. Yeah the talent & potential is definitely there..I just expected more from this if i'm being honest,still it isnt a bad release by any means...adequate really sums it up...which in turn could be construed as disappointing given my hopes for these guys.
  9. Happy days,looking forward to this nice suprise release
  10. Yeah unpopular but each to their own I suppose,if its not for you its not for you..but for some of us it is
  11. CureTheSane

    Corona

    I wish I had been, I could have used that as an excuse
  12. You're right. That is an unpopular opinion.
  13. Synthwave is a terrible non-genre that fuses the worst elements of synthpop with the worst elements of AOR to make something that is an abomination to music lovers. It appeals to those who are nostalgic for the 80s but with an aesthetic appreciation for the blandness of modern life and/or kpop. It sucks. Synthwave really sucks the big one. Any time I picture a synthwave fan, I see Glenn Gulia from the Wedding Singer. No amount of pink and purple highlighters can rescue this ugly stepchild and wannabe yuppie. Unfortunately no one will beat the shit out of these talentless synthwave douches, mostly because no one cares enough about these fluoro wankers.
  14. Immense. Cannot wait for this monster to drop.
  15. Very poor album with his vocals harder to listen to than ever. 'Two Hearts On The Run' is the only song I thought was kind of okay. The rest is a pass for me.
  16. Good, super consistent album. These guys remind me a lot of The Radio Sun. Not identical in style or anything, but they have a formula and stick to it throughout the album without really belting out a clear cut album highlight, but also not producing anything poor either. Solid.
  17. Digging this track right now, especially the solo.
  18. More info from Erik: I am very happy to present you to something I’ve been wanting to do for some time now. Some of you know that I was diagnosed with leukemia earlier this year. It was the start of a life changing journey full of perspective and it guided me to the core of who I am. It really made me realize that making and releasing music is one of the most important things in my life and it has never been more important to me. So that’s what I’m going to do. I am very happy to present you to my version of Black Sabbath – Headless Cross. Headless cross has been one of the warm up songs backstage before shows for a couple of years.

  19. Nice album that frequently threatens to be a bit more than solid, but rarely cracks "keeper" territory. 'All I Need' is my pick of the bunch, but it's an adequate album overall.
  20. Not a bad little tape, this one. Still hasn't completely turned around my opinion on these guys, but there are some glimmers of brilliance on this one. 'Good And The Bad' is melodic / commercial gold and I wish it wasn't a one-off on the album... because it really works. Would love to hear them do an album like this all the way through. 'Pieces 0f Your Love' is a really cool hard rocker too, with some really cool musicianship throughout, and 'Nightmare games' just makes the grade too. The rest has a cool vibe, and I like the slightly heavier feel over the debut, but not a lot of the other songs do too much for me, sadly.
  21. New album out September 3rd on Nuclear Blast. From Nuclear Blast: THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA is back! The band that formed as an idea of friends from several well known rock/metal bands(SOILWORK, ARCH ENEMY, MEAN STREAK) back almost a decade ago and has been dropping jaws ever since. With 5 albums already under their belt, 2 nominations for the Swedish Grammies, countless live shows and praises from fans and media alike, TNFO have steadily upped their game when it comes to paying tribute to a decade that influences all sorts of people and even industries to this day - the 80s. With hits like „Domino“, „Lovers In The Rain“, „West Ruth Ave“, „Divinyls“ or „This Time“, the band manages to maintain a variety of vibes and emotions within every album. From hard rockers, poppy digressions to progressive epics, disco-esque songs and almost cheesy yet loveable ballads. Enter 2020, TNFO had just released their recent record, »Aeromantic«, and kicked off their European tour in support of it, when the Covid-19 pandemic hit. Björn Strid, the AOR dictator helming this exceptional collective called NFO, recalls “We made it one week into the tour after some absolutely amazing shows and then it all went south and we had to go home. Just about everyone on the tour got sick when they came home, with varied conditions.” The band didn’t step back and accept the situation but decided to do what they do best instead: “It was pretty clear after some months into the Covid madness, that it was here to stay and that we weren’t gonna be able to tour for quite some time. So we made the best out of it. The remedy was simply to hit the studio again as soon as everybody was well again. It ended up being an incredibly creative 1,5 years and so many amazing songs came out of it.” That being said, the second part of the »Aeromantic« saga really captures what this band is all about: being in motion and romanticizing traveling, sometimes even with a broken heart - accompanied by the good things in life. Namely with songs like „White Jeans“, yet another jaw dropping classic rock gem about hot young love, cramped with nostalgia, or “Change”, which encompasses all the vibes you know from your favorite decade: Urgency, emotion, warmth and excitement. But also groovy danceable songs like“Chardonnay Nights”, a groovy, dreamy, yet uplifting homage to parties and hot love, or “Burn For Me”, a true feel good anthem for the summer - driving people to dance in the streets, all worries aside, to a brighter future. On the other hand there are tracks like the almost progressive “Amber Through A Window”. A little throwback (at least titular) to theNFO’s epic 2017 album »Amber Galactic«: “Amber is with us wherever we go and I think she’ll keep coming back. She’s our mascot of escapism. The song was very interesting to compose. It takes you on quite a journey with key changes and goes from minor to major when you least expect it and throws you between different set of emotions. At the same time it feels pretty direct and operates like a mini epos. Really happy with how it turned out“, cites Strid. With new keyboardist John Lönnmayr in their ranks, the NFO has also added fresh talent to their unique sound as Strid puts it: “John is definitely a keyboard and music wiz. He’s been playing a lot of different music styles, from fusion jazz to straight up commercial pop. He has a brilliant ear and have brought so much fresh blood to the band, both on a personal side but also musical side. John is a childhood friend of Sebastian so it was Sebastian who recommended him. We always trust Sebastian’s judgement.” Besides all this, the band has also stepped up their game when it comes to music videos for their timeless anthems. “White Jeans” for instance features Swedish TV personality Fredrik Lexfors and is a sweet little homage to the LGBTQIA+ community. “Fredrik is a good friend of mine and has loads of experience in the musical/theatre world and is super creative. He created this character called ”Kantorn” (The Cantor) some years ago and became a hit on YouTube. He has a very twisted and unique way of singing and acting, which is very funny. He was a part of Sweden’s Got Talent TV Show and went really far and became a crowd favorite. Fredrik has a lot of friends in the LGBTQIA+ community and I also have quite a few. We saw it as a joyful tribute and we’ve only gotten really good response. It’s of course also humorous but has a very nice balance and a very positive message.” The bold and jovial video for “Burn For Me” on the other hand maybe among the biggest and best productions, the NFO ever recorded for the depths of the internet: “I’ve had this idea to film a ”Dancing in the Streets” video, where curious people come out of the woodworks and join the party in the streets. It’s a very classic 80’s scenario and very common in videos back then. Sort of the video to IRENE CARA’s ”Fame”. You don’t see it very often these days. We felt that it was needed and after “Burn For Me” was done I immediately envisoned it being the perfect ”post corona dancing celebration in the streets-song”.” Those two videos are by far not everything the band will have to offer visually, but we won’t tell any more just for now. To be continued… With all that new greatness up their sleeves, NFO are ready to take the world by storm – again! Even though coming up with a setlist for their scheduled tour starting in September may prove to become problematic according to the AOR Dictator: “Making a setlist might end up being a nightmare haha… I would be up for doing only songs off »Aeromantic I« and »Aeromantic II« since that’s really where we’re at right now, but I think most of our the Midnight Flyers would like to hear some old stuff, too. Maybe we could get away with it as long as we play “West Ruth Ave” as the ending song and create the good old conga train?” »Aeromantic II« in the NFO’s own, cryptic words: Violent Indigo: …is, of course, about the inherent violence of indigo. It destroys. Midnight Marvelous: Daylight will be the end of us. How Long: 90’s Deep Purple on cocaine, and the anxiety of waiting for something to happen. Burn For Me: How could you ever not want someone to burn for you? Chardonnay Nights: The nights marinated in a full-bodied grape extract always seem to be the best ones. Change: Because a tiny bit of invention never killed anyone. Amber Through a Window: Fever is rising. And if you have never seen Amber through a window, you’ve never actually seen Amber. I Will Try: If you haven’t been at that train station, you have no idea what I’m talking about. You Belong To The Night: Because someone has to. Zodiac: On the cusp of every sign, there is something waiting to happen. White Jeans: What is there to say? Just that some of us has an inclination for lightly coloured jeans. And that they symbolise freedom. Moonlit Skies: The end of an era, and the beginning of an empire. Tracks 1. Violent Indigo 2. Midnight Marvelous 3. How Long 4. Burn For Me 5. Chardonnay Nights 6.

  22. Man it makes me sad to see once-great artists do this to themselves. Surely she's not recording this thinking wow, this is top stuff. Because it isn't. It's pure garbage and a(nother) blemish on a great career. Awful.
  23. Love this song. Love that guitar effect that reminds me of Heartbreak Blvd by Shotgun Messiah.
  24. Not sure I've ever heard anything from these guys before, but got a bit of this one in my ears. A lot of stuff I'm just really not into at all, but three really good tunes amongst the rubble. 'Easily,' 'Paralyzed' and 'Open arms' are three good slabs of melodic rock... on an album that is not strictly a melodic rock album.
  25. This is atrocious. Yes, sound quality is really poor but the decision to handle vocals himself is as bad a choice as his production choices have been in releasing this. Fancy releasing something this poor after such a career...
