    Degreed - Ruins

    Hmmmmm. Don't love it, don't hate it.
  2. Well, this year is being much softer than last one IMO; not exactly a surprise as a lot of great bands did their releases in 2017 and it's too soon for the most part of them. My top-5 currently: 1. W.E.T. 2. Shiraz Lane 3. No Sleep For Lucy 4. Ammunition 5. ReVertigo Big deception: Kamelot Very possibly Vega, Station, and Ted Poley+Degreed will mess all this. Don't be shy and let me know yours!

    Top-5 2018 (at the moment)

    Haha, well, to be honest I had a serious doubt on that (Sapphire vs Creye), but in the end, though I agree Creye is more polished I find the Sapphire songs a bit more compelling to me in average (except Christina which is probably best track of the year). Anyway it's nearly a tie. Merry x-mas!

    The Poodles are no more

    Devil In The Details was solid too. Sad to hear, best wishes for all of them.

    Magic Dance - New Eyes

    Nice songs but very samey. Also seems like variations on songs of Vanishings instead of real new material. So, decent if you don't have Vanishings. But more innovation should be a must for the next one.
  9. Note: It's a track list, not a score list. 3 rules: -12 tracks, no more, -only 1 song per band, -songs 4, 5 on each 'side' have to be mid-tempo/ballads, like in real CDs. 2016 01. The Defiants - Love and bullets 02. Nordic Union - Hipocrisy 03. Cruzh - Aim for the head 04. Palace - Part of me 05. Treat - Do your own stunts 06. Vega - White flag

    Kissin' Dynamite - Ecstasy

    Have to agree about the clip, it's disturbing to see his face all the time. I would have done it like a video-story, for example starting with the singer looking old photos of a smiling girl, then showing the singer and the girl together falling in love like flashbacks of their happy relationship, but at the middle of the song the girl begins to act bad, trying drugs and doing things to hurt him; finally he leaves her in the rain while the song ends. Something like that I think would have been more adequate. Love the song, though.

    Nordic Union - Second Coming

    Listened; well, I like it but is clearly below the debut. Glad to hear Atkins still in great fit, it's just the tracks are weaker this time IMO. Favourite track: Walk Me Through The Fire (even being predictable is the catchiest)

    Nordic Union - Second Coming

    True love for 'True Love Awaits You' awaits you, mate. Maybe you'll get 'When Death Is Calling'.

    Dynazty - Firesign

    Impossible, I reserve my musical opinions to HH.

    Play Rough - S/T (2018)

    Not exactly my coup of tea but I suppose could appeal some of you here: http://sleazeroxx.com/play-roughs-self-titled-album-consisting-of-16-songs-released-via-fna-records/

    Nordic Union - Second Coming

    I don't disagree but it's a matter of degrees: to stay with your sound is OK, but there has to be some innovation because when your audience notice your songs are predictable means they are very similar, hence people will become tired or bored soon. On the other hand, if your innovation is too much that you leave your original sound completely, your fans will feel alienated and will retire their support to the band. The ideal point is to be near to the middle. Martenson is in the side of little innovation, and certainly some of his tracks are becoming predictable as Glen said, which is not good. It's not yet a really serious problem but undeniable, IMO. Also the fact that Erik composes for several bands does this more apparent than with other artists. By the way I qualified the debut of Nordic Union as my favorite album of 2016, so not precisely a hater. I like nearly all Erik does but I think it's time for him to evolve his sound a bit.

    Dynazty - Firesign

    I'm enjoying this one; not Top-5, ok, but solid.

    Top-5 2018 (at the moment)

    Well, as you probably know at first didn't like it too much but with each listening had more and more tracks remaining in my head. Now I like it from the start to the end; even the two bonus tracks are great, specially Wild Wind. Has really infecting tunes IMO. In fact to be honest I'm listening this one far more than W.E.T. which rarely play by now.

    Minor swap. 1. W.E.T. 2. Kissin' Dynamite 3. Maverick 4. Shiraz Lane 5. No Sleep For Lucy Listened Nitrate, Treat, Sapphire Eyes (like them but not for Top-5), and currently Creye (this one has potential).

    Sapphire Eyes - Breath Of Ages

    +1, good sophomore in the style of the debut.
