anyone got this on CD? I have the cassette and being I'm not a huge Zep fan I never connected with this cd.

check out the review of the band here if you think it might be something you are interested in.

They really mix it up with major influences from all those bands mentioned. Some good stuff from those samples :tumbsup:

Nothing really amazing, but sounds like it might be worth a look. The prices on Amazon are fairly cheap so I think I'll give it a shot. What songs do you recommend off it?

kind of like I said in my OP, I'm not a Zepp fan so this didn't really sit with me. It has been a long time since I even have dug my cassette out and given it a listen. The thread about 70's rock made me think of this and some of the big 70's fans might find this interesting. So sorry, nothing I can really say is "top 3" from the album

Ah I see, fair enough. Thanks for bringing it to our attention though :)

I nearly got it but after a few listens on the Amazon samples, the vocals on the 1st and I think 9th track are just the type of vocals I don't like.

Still some good stuff on it and still might get it yet :unsure:

The jury is still out on this whether to get it or not :unsure:

WOW, i remember this band! They had a promo when this album came out...which pretty much ended up with me being mega spammed by them with even more spamming software.. so ive refused to have anything to do with them since..

I just picked this up from F.Y.E. last week for less than $2.00.

I haven't gotten around on playing it yet (weekdays are tough for me playing music, while Mrs Junky is around).

I'll give my report soon..

I see why the ZEP & GREAT WHITE come to mind. Really decent rock..

This will probably be my favorite christian band after a few more spins..

It's a keeper in my book.. :tumbsup:

As far as Jerusalem, for me it never got any better than "Constantly Changing" from the Warrior album:

 

 

The drumming on this is subtle greatness!

    • Could be. I think they have better distribution in Europe.
    • Trace - Line Of Fire Passion Play - Time Stands Still Mike + The Mechanics - The Singles 1985 - 2014 (2 CD) Frameshift - An Absence Of Empathy Lion´s Share - Dark Hours + 1 Platens - Between Two Horizons No Sweat - Tear Down The Walls (CD-single) Texas - Tired Of Being Alone Acoustic EP
    • Then later by AOR Heaven also I think? 
    • No doubt in the world he has a sound and he doesn't stray far from it... but if it's that good I'm prepared to be lenient here,
    • Also, the boulevard album is near perfection except the 1 minute of madness at the end of Slippin Away. What were they thinking??  Might be my most played album of 2017. More accurately would no 2 spot. really looking forward to seeing them again on Saturday 
    • Yeah, I love the original.
      Interestingly, Sly Stallone wanted "Another One Bites The Dust" and Queen wouldn't allow the ise, so he asked Survivor to write their version of the Queen song.
      The watched some of the movies and saw the line "you've lost the eye of the tiger", liked the line and wrote the song.
      Another footnote, for the next movie they were presented with that "you're the best... around" song and rejected it and it went on the get fame in the Karate Kid movie. Anyway, like I said, I love the original song, but to me it sounds a bit rawer than this version.
      This version doesn't suck, it's just average in the way of "what's the point"
      Nothing new, no new take on the song.
      if you're gonna redo a song like this, it has to be (as Paul Stanley would say) bombastic.
      This isn't.

      No biggie, but of all the covers are lesser versions of the originals I'll obviously have no interest.
      To cover a song you either improve it or do your own take on it.
      Simply re-recording it with newer technology and a cleaner sound etc is not very inspiring.
    • Not sure what you mean by that. You reckon this version is more AOR than the original? Bonfire are by nature a bit ballsier than Survivor in that era and this just sounds like Bonfire doing a Survivor cover, which, by nature, is a bit more hard rock than AOR... to these ears anyway. Decent cover. 
    • Why are the making the songs more AOR than the originals? Very average.
    • Ha true..his songs are pretty much one dimensional but...two different songs so the melodies do vary(though very slightly) and the second one happens to sound better to these ears.
    • Released via Reed's own 'Zero One Entertainment' label.
