  1. My favorite band also.... Can't say I'm really digging Personal Jesus much though. Frankly, never cared for the original much either. For me, this is about the same level as the Yeah album that I didn't like much at all. To be honest, I think their constant playing of Rock On live has influenced me a bit and not in a good way. I'm so tired of hearing that song live when they have so many other songs in their catalog. Overall, just never been real big on covers. They're fine as one off things or whatever....But don't need to see albums full of covers. And the Christmas song sounds pretty terrible to my ears. This package will be an easy pass for me as I have no interest in another Greatest Hits offering. You're lucky getting to see the Hysteria and more tour though. I'm stuck here in the US seeing the same greatest hits tour every year. I should've went to see Viva Hysteria in Vegas when I had the chance.

    Midnite City 2

    Good to hear....Mine should arrive in the next day or two Trying not to set the expectations too high.....But expecting that it'll probably wind up being my #1 album again this year based upon the songs and samples I've heard. These guys just seem to hit my tastes perfectly. Might be the first time in memory I've ever had the same band take my #1 album spot 2 years in a row

    Midnite City 2

    On the bright side though, I also ordered from AOR Heaven directly and got notification this morning that it's shipped. So should have it a few days before the official release date

    Midnite City 2

    Yeah...I have prime too. I use it for most releases but sometimes avoid it. I heard Pete Newdeck say on Friday with Fry last night that they plan to offer pre-orders for signed CD's directly from the band on theri FB page so I'll probably go that route for this one.

    Midnite City 2

    Screw Amazon. I'd either order from AOR heaven direct, NEH Records or the band directly.

    Midnite City 2

    Agree on the samples....Sounding excellent! Just seems like there are more backing vocals, more keys, just an overall bigger sound. Here's the link to check them out for anyone so inclined... https://heavyharmonies.com/cgi-bin/glamcd.cgi?BandNum=7989&CDName=There Goes the Neighbourhood Honestly, I'm already feeling like this is gonna be my #1 album this year just based on the samples lol. Just really dig the whole vibe of this band and their songs. It's like Poison, Warrant, Danger Danger and Def Leppard were tossed in a blender. Can't wait for this to drop

    Shiraz Lane - Carnival Days

    Great album and amazing how much they improved from the first album. Love the variety of songs on this and just has a great sound. Definitely has been one of the albums this year that has really stood out for me and a really well done melodic hard rock album IMO.

    Kenny Leckremo - Spectra

    Lol...agree. For me that's terrible.

    Top-5 2018 (at the moment)

    My top 4 are the same albums, just different order (KD, Shiraz, Maverick, Wet). Have to say though that Treat is pushing for the 4th spot....Really digging that album. I'm hoping/expecting that Midnite City busts into my top 4 though.

    Dallas - deal with AOR Blvd Records

    Personally, I think this is a skip. Couple decent songs but really not very memorable IMO. I'm not sure I've really given it much of a chance but I've listened a couple times and really haven't had any desire to go back to it. Probably going to be tossing mine on Ebay at some point when I get around to it.

    Crazy Lixx - Ruff Justice

    Awesome! These guys were so cool to see at MRF5 in Chicago. I wasn't sure what to expect from them live as I've sort of heard some mixed reviews over the years with Danny lacking energy on stage or whatever. Well, they absolutely killed it on stage! And have to say they were pretty cordial to hang with as well and very willing to sign, take pictures or whatever. I got to chat a bit with Danny and he had mentioned they were writing for the next album and hoping to start recording by the end of the year with eyes on a mid 2019 release. I'm looking forward to mid-october for the re-releases of the first few albums. My first exposure to these guys was New Religion and I never picked up the debut. Also, I never really feel like I gave Riot Avenue a fair shake because it was a bit of a departure from the New Religion sound. I need to revisit that one.

    Treat - Tunguska

    I think I"d second this. I think the best songs on GOG ate slightly better than the best songs on this. However, GOG also had 3-4 songs in the second half I didn't really care for and I'm finding myself liking every song on the new one. So for me, Tunguska is stronger top to bottom.

    Hearts On Fire - Call Of Destiny

    Multiple listens in now and digging this album more with each listen. For me, not a single song here I'm getting the urge to skip past. I like the overall sound a lot....Even with the compressed digital files I've gotten Tough to even say which songs are standing out for me but I'd probably say Holding On and Falling Into You if I had to pick a couple songs. I like the variety on this though and like how it's able to incorporate some AOR elements but still keeping it in the melodic rock/hard rock spectrum and not getting too "smooth" or "cheesy". I do still feel like One Desire is a good comparison, although not really a "Buried Alive" type song here. Excellent stuff and would think well worth at least checking out for many here.
