for the way they hacked up Runaround and just made it a joke. It was a big joke and a promo spot for the band. They could have cared less about VH, expecially the Hagar era

every time I see that is ticks me off

 

 

 

 

Here are my thoughts...

 

 

Ain't Talkin' Bout Love - Band sounded great, vocals were terrible.

 

Runaround - WTF was that????????????

WTF was that you ask?

That was a band ruining a classic song.

 

Anyone else notice that Weiland was a better performer when he was on Heroin?

I liked it for the most part. I thought the band was spot on but Weiland leaves something to be desired as lead vox on a VH tune. He tried too hard to be Mick Jagger singing Van Halen.

Pretty shitty band, IMO. The CD was very average and never really drew me in for repeated listens. Sadly, because my girl bought it for me and I appreciate the gesture. :(

Well I like 'em but I think they could have picked a better vocalist than Weiland or Josh Todd.

I like the band for the most part and I like most of their album.

With that being said I still would of prefered them to hire a different singer, but then again without Weiland they might of never been given a chance in todays Music scene.

I remember there was one cool song on the disc. Song 6, I think. As I said, I really don't think the band are great, but I'd never sell my disc. My girl bought me this and Sugarcult's new CD at the time when they were released. Back when she loved me with music included. :( I did like them both... this one just hasn't drawn me in for repeated listens whilst I spun the Sugarcult one ruthlessly for months.

It's been 38 minutes since my previous post and I think Rycheage and I are gonna have to simply agree to disagree on the subject of Velvet Revolver, lest this thread become even sillier than it has already. :)

This thread has a faint taste not disimilar to the 'Nevermind' thread. I would hate to see a 'Nevermind Part II' thread being born.

Now that was a noble statement Chris, well done on your diplomacy and bringing to an end this childish arguement. :rofl2:

 

 

By the way I think they pretty much suck too...everytime I've seen them performing live on anything they've pretty much made me feel embarassed to be a rocker as they've been awful. Oooooops that's torn it lol!

I really don't think they're that great really. They have maybe three good songs. Just wanted to stir the pot a bit... :dance:

    • From FaceBook   Midnite City     · IT'S OFFICIAL! We have now started work on what will become our fourth album which will be coming your way in 2023. The songs are written and the work has begun. As with our previous albums, it's never a quick process. We have a long journey ahead of us, but the work starts now! Look out for lots of studio updates
    • This is a good one. The Deluxe Edition from MelodicRock Classics looks interesting. See below:  
    • New songs. From Frontiers: Frontiers Music Srl is thrilled to announce the upcoming release of Perfect Plan's third studio album, "Brace For Impact". Over the course of their first two albums, "All Rise" and "Time For A Miracle", the Swedes have quickly established themselves as a new gold standard in not only the Scandinavian melodic rock genre, but the melodic rock genre as a whole. "Brace For Impact" does nothing to slow that momentum and fans should do exactly as the album's title says in preparation for their latest opus.  Produced by the band, songwriting started in August 2021 for "Brace For Impact" and was wrapped up by the end of the year. The band then spent January of this year working on arrangements and pre-production work before starting the process of recording in the first week of February. Asked about the musical direction of the album, vocalist Kent Hilli says, "Well, hard question...we didn’t think too much about that when we started writing as we want everything to come naturally to us. All we focused on and wanted to do was to write really great melodic rock songs with great riffs and melodies. But I think we have more ”rockers” on this album than before. I would say that it's melodic rock in general, but maybe slightly harder than our previous albums. But much like our second album, ”Time For A Miracle” we have a great mixture between hard rock, melodic rock, and AOR in there...and some songs even have some elements of progressive rock and some bluesier elements mixed in also. And we have just one ballad on this album. Our goal when writing an album is that it should feel like playing songs on a jukebox and I think we have succeeded with that on this album. Everything sounds like PERFECT PLAN 3.0, really! I think we have definitely pushed everything up a notch from songwriting and lyrics to arrangements and overall performance and sound. With the addition of the great Tobias Lindell who does the mixing…everything sounds really big and majestic I think!" Sometimes the stars align and create a perfect balance of talent within a group. A band like Perfect Plan is the “perfect" (pun intended) example of that: a superb singer, a well-oiled band of experienced players, and a great songwriting talent with a knack for unforgettable melodies and driving rhythms. Add to that the right single released at the right time and Perfect Plan’s emergence as immediate rising stars on the melodic rock scene is no surprise. The song that “built” their reputation is of course the awesome “In and Out of Love,” the first single/video that kicked off the promotion of the band’s 2018 debut album “All Rise,” released on Frontiers in April of that year. The band followed their debut album with the sophomore release "Time For A Miracle" in 2020. Hyperbole aside, it was a major step forward across the board. Opting for a slightly heavier and more “in your face” sound, Perfect Plan matured and created an outstanding balance of melodies and energy, with the obvious references to the sound of the classics (think Foreigner, Survivor, The Storm, Giant, etc.) and Scandinavian AOR with a recognizable and personal feel. So, after a stunning debut and sticking the landing with their second album, what does Perfect Plan have up their sleeve for an encore? Well, all we can say is..."Brace For Impact”! Tracklisting: 1. Surrender 2. If Love Walks In 3. Can’t Let You Win 4. Gotta Slow Me Down 5. Stop The Bleed 6. My Angel 7. Devil’s Got The Blues 8. Bring Me A Doctor 9. Still Undefeated 10. Emelie 11. Walk Through Fire Line-Up: Kent Hilli - Lead vocals Rolf Nordström - Guitar Leif Ehlin - Keyboards Fredrik Forsberg - Drums Mats Byström - Bass   https://perfectplan.se facebook        
    • Hi,  You can buy the deluxe album here.  https://www.amazon.com/Vanity-Kills-Deluxe-All-Know/dp/B09XBMXPNT Or listen to the vanity kills album on Spotify:   New music wil be released in the near future!   
    • Baton Rogue Morgue - Massacre of St. Valentine's Day. Great track despite the clunky chorus. Solid album.    
    • I've just posted this "Grim Reaper" retrospective in another thread, but it should be here as well.    
    • "Grim Reaper" features this time. I don't know if he had this one in the works, but it's a nice tribute.    
    • I would have put Animalize as the middle feature piece as the album cover looks the most "blanketty"
    • My favorite guitarist of all time Rock In Peace  Eddie 🎸 
    • The full album's on YouTube.
