  1. Good album. It flows nicely. Not as many instant classics as from their golden era from 2012-2016 but much better than the last one, I'm not tempted to skip any songs.
  2. Because their album is being produced by Alessandro de- *slapped*
  3. Different strokes and stuff but I agree. Stack it up against the usual sterile-sounding Frontiers crap and it's no contest.
  4. You're right, I was definitely too harsh. Had Enough is a typical Vega anthem and 2Die4 is a great closer. I don't think it will unseat any of their first 3 albums as my favorites, but it could be their strongest since Stereo Messiah.
  5. Hmm, I dunno about this one, guys. The first half is amazing, second half not so much. The album could have ended after the eighth track and I'd be perfectly OK with that. That being said, holy SHIT is that ballad amazing! I was not expecting that at all!
  6. Sounds amazing, it's like they went back to what they were doing in the early 2010s but with a better production. Those vocal melodies are SUPER vanilla though. I know LaBrie can't sing like he used to but I still hope the vocals are a little more dynamic on the rest of the album.
  7. First time through this one and I can already say that this is their best production since Stereo Messiah. It really accentuates the drummer's talents (I think he's better than their previous drummer).
  8. What on earth is this. It sounds like when people "chipmunk" songs in Audacity and then upload them to Youtube as a joke.
  9. ADV continues to appear on a ton of Frontiers projects, and his songwriting and production have become incredibly stale to me and many others here. I do, however, like some of what he's done in the past. But I'm not sure if anything really blows me away. I liked the LRS album when it first came out but it hasn't aged well to me. Only a few songs (Our Love to Stay, Almost Over You, Down to the Core) are still in my rotation. Ted Poley - Beyond the Fade. I still dig this one. Lots of fun and anthemic songs, though I'm guessing most here don't like the duet with Issa. Three Lions. Really really solid and actually rocks. What else? Groundbreaker is decent I suppose. The Revolution Saints debut was incredibly overrated IMO. Hardline has been mediocre for years now. The latest Sunstorm... don't get me started!
  10. Classic thrash doesn't get much better than this. I gotta say, though, newer Sepultura is being slept on. Their drummer Eloy Casagrande is a BEAST.
  11. That production sounds 30 years out of date.
  12. The Harem Scarem vibes come from the vocal harmonies, at least to me. I'll have to look into this band.
  13. I actually really liked that. And a video that actually matches the song!
  14. Well, that sucks. Overland+Sall was the original selling point of this whole project. But if we know Frontiers, they'll keep plugging in random musicians long after the spirit of a project is dead. The first single is decent, but it probably wouldn't be as good with a different vocalist. Those layered vocals are sublime.
  15. https://www.facebook.com/paullaineofficial/posts/681924152724060 Some stuff about vocal chains and gear that I don't understand, a maddeningly handsome selfie, and another mention of an upcoming album. Doesn't sound like it's close but it's still in the works at least, which is enough to make me VERY EXCITED.
  16. Yup, I was thinking this the other day. They're not even comparable to most synthwave really.
  17. Listening now. Seems to be a little more uptempo and rocking than the debut, not necessarily a qualm, just an observation. More guitars. Caroline and Hotel Crowne are the best tracks. I'm Still On Your Side is skippable. I'm a tad underwhelmed, honestly.
  18. The prog community fucking loves them but they're a bit too noodly in their approach for me, which is odd because I'm a huge Yes fan. Maybe I'll give them another shot because the only album from them I've heard is Rites at Dawn.
  19. Messing with them is fun. Robocalls are much more annoying and invasive to me. Believe it or not there is a hobby dedicated to screwing with scammers called "scambaiting." I highly recommend looking up Kitboga, Jim Browning, Hoax Hotel, and Scammer Revolts on YouTube, it's oddly entertaining stuff...
  20. Just the higher-ups massaging their own egos. I agree, it's pretty cringey.
