  2. Good tune, I was starting to think these guys had called it quits, glad I was wrong
  3. Their last album Apex was pretty good. I've heard a few songs from the new release, of which "Legacy" and the title track stood out the most. I haven't gotten around to listening to the full album yet, but looking forward to checking it out.
  4. I agree, this is a step up from the debut to me as well. The Survivor comparisons that were mentioned is a good description of what's on display here. A bit safe at times, but between the great vocals and strong songwriting it should appeal to most fans of traditional AOR/Melodic Rock. My initial favorites are "What About Love", "Better Walk Alone", and "Give A Little Lovin".
  5. welcome back, glad you are doing alright
  6. I enjoyed this album as well. I've thought most of their prior releases were pretty good but after two spins this is probably my favorite from the band. The lyrics might not appeal to everyone. Kind of a horror/fantasy comic book theme running throughout. But I found it to work well with the overall sound and it made for a really cool vibe throughout. I picked up the same Crue influence on "Here Today, Gone Tomorrow". My initial favorites are "Tokyo Lights" and "Last of An Undying Kind" but even the tracks that didn't entirely grab me (Nostalgia and Mr. Grouch) had segments that I liked
  7. Sad news, one of my favorite drummers in the 80's. He seemed like a genuinely good guy who had a lot of passion about music and his fans. And seemed to have kept his usual positive outlook despite the diagnosis last year. R.I.P. Frankie, you'll be missed.
  8. I think teams use the lateral pass less often in the NFL for two reasons. First, they want the ball in the hands of their best players and would prefer everyone else be utilized as a blocker, to keep the other team away from that player. And secondly, because of the risk of fumbling/dropping the ball and turning it over to the opposing team.
  9. yeah, I thought the same about the lack of info being reported on the accident, especially with the injuries he sustained from it apparently being what eventually led to his death, I had looked to a few other online stories and none of them touched on it, odd
  10. Pete Way, bass player and founding member of the bands UFO and Waysted passed away yesterday at age 69 https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-8629307/UFO-bass-player-Pete-Way-died-aged-69-suffering-life-threatening-injuries.html
  11. Along with HH, those two were some of my go to sites years ago when it came to getting info on bands, trading, and downloading rare songs/albums. I still go to them but not as often. But like with many sites costs and time involved to manage makes it hard to sustain long term. Glorydazemusic was another site I frequented but haven't in awhile. I also used to check out a site called heavymetalrarities.com for downloads of rare songs/albums, but there were fewer and fewer people sharing content as time went on. I would check out sites like ioffer and sell.com to buy bootleg concert video
  12. I thought their first two albums were pretty good but missed this one being released, thanks for bumping, will check it out
  13. Another nice track, that's 3 for 3 for me, looking forward to the album release
  14. I haven't gotten into their last couple of albums, but I'm digging that new song
  15. The first promo track didn't do much for me, but the new song 'Rush Hour' sounds pretty good
  16. That is odd that they have the two different track orders. The digital download version is how it is set up on Spotify. I prefer the order of the digital download, but as you said, really good album either way. And nowadays most people will just add their favorite tracks to playlists in a random order anyway.
  17. This is a nice debut, and something the band can hopefully build on. They seem to have all the pieces in place, but at times the songs sound a bit generic, borrowing a bit too heavily from other artists. I listened to this on Spotify which seems to have a different track order than I've seen elsewhere. The opener 'Breakout', which sounds a bit like a Talisman b-side, and 'Madeleine' are probably the only tracks that failed to grab me. Tracks 2 thru 4 are all solid. But things really pick up in the middle, starting with 'Lift Me Up'. They string together a few more standouts with 'Lost', '
  18. The re-imagined version of 'Hellchild' is alright, I can handle that. I've been a big Lynch/Dokken fan for years, but this comes across as merely something to listen to once out of curiosity. I think most long time fans would much rather they put out some new material that goes back to the style of those first two albums. Or as AlphaMale mentioned, if you're going to redo something why not the self-titled album with Oni on vocals.
  19. Not a band I listen to very much, but they've got a few songs that I enjoy. Their EP a few years ago had more of a country rock vibe. While the last two full length albums are as was mentioned a mix of straight ahead rock & roll and modern rock with some blues and country sprinkled in.
  20. This is pretty bad, but I think it would be near impossible for it to be worse than that disaster of an album
  21. I like the chorus on the new song, but seems like the guitars are a bit buried in the mix during much of the song
  22. Yeah, definitely a tougher guitar sound when compared with the debut and I prefer it as well. Of the two tracks released so far, I liked 'Better Walk Alone' a bit more, but the new song is solid.
