As a big fan I wasn't that excited by this, sounds heavier than his other stuff...

I'm a big fan as well... I want to order this one but... Heavier ? What do you mean ? Is it still melodic ? Do you think that it's not worth to order it ?

There still sound like some melodic tracks, but it's definitely more aggressive & I don't much care for the vocal style on some tracks. I have picked up & enjoyed almost all of his previous material, but I will pass on this. I'd definitely say you should try before you buy....

I'm going to give this one a spin soon. I have to admit I've always hated his voice. I reckon this is going to sound like 'Between the light', which was heavier and overall pretty awful... regardless of the fact it contains one of the finest tracks ever... 'If I had never asked you to dance'. A favourite on my Ipod shuffle, and I never complain. I love that song.

 

Anyway, comments on this album to follow soon.

The first song is great (title track) is great but the rest is just average Sabu stuff. Not as melodic as his best stuff like Only Childs debut and Heartbreaker in my opinion. More rockier. More Aorisher stuff please Mr. Sabu.

I agree, does not impress at all. His best work was In Dreams by a country mile.

I'm just going to put it right out there... this CD sucks the scrotal residue of the filthiest donkey balls 2007 has to offer. Horrible vocals, dreadful song writing... the CD is truly a dreadful mess, IMO. What makes a guy think these songs were worth recording is beyond me... sorry to sound so harsh.

Got to agree here,listened to it once,lights out,blinds closed and headphones on so I could listen to it without being disturbed but was a waste of time,I think there was maybe 1 song that I thought was just OK but the rest,tbh a few minutes into a good few of them and the skip button was used :(

Yeah, same here. There was okay song I think, but my finger was all but stapled to the skip button... it was really that hard just to listen to most these tracks all the way though one time.

So what do people think of this new CD, which was supposed to be a return to form?

 

Seriously, is it just me, or does this dude have no right to be anywhere near a microphone? Am I being overly harsh, or has he not about the worst voice you've heard in your life... after the poofter in The Darkness.

 

Anyway, first few spins of this new CD, 'Bangkok Rules,' I thought it was okay. It definitely seemed a little better than recent efforts, but I dunno. The more I hear it, the more things about it grate on me. Here was my end summary on it:

 

01. Bangkok Rules - pretty annoying / average opener - 6.00

02. Rock Don't Run - horribly annoying backing vocals, but nice keys and should have been a cool rocker - 7.25

03. Race To Nowhere - a bit of a plodder, as evidenced by the title - 6.50

04. Live Or Die Tryin' - average but solid rocker with more awful vocals - 7.00

05. Love's Got a Mind Of Her Own - pretty ugly tune - 6.50

06. Rocked And Loaded - solid rocker, I guess, but very cheesy - 7.00

07. Read My Eyes - okay but pretty bland ballad - 7.00

08. Black Star - average rocker which does nothing good - 6.00

09. Code Blue - ugly rocker, pretty hard to sit through - 5.00

10. Back The Jacks - purely and honestly, dreadful, dreadful music - 1.00

 

TOTAL - 59%

    • ....If we have something negative to say we will surely let it fly
    • Still waiting for the  2 inch dick Chinese to be held responsible for giving the world the plague.POS Biden Admin and their pussy diplomatic boycott - forget the entire d@mn thing.Send NO athletes.
    • Unless your beathing and lungs are so fucked up you have to be put on a ventilator.  So sorry I inconvenienced hospital staff. 
    • The morons who go to the hospital are just as ridiculous as the people who rail on them for not being vaxed, maybe it's Darwin's theory and who are we to interfere? I begrudgingly went to the hospital, they told me I had Covid, to come to the hospital, I went in they checked my kidney function, gave me some strips to pee on every 7 days, if the strip turned red then to come straight in, then I went home, I think that's pretty common sense, when you make the decision to not get vaxed, don't you kind of assume the risk if it's real? they cant do anything for you, so whats the point in going there? everything they can do you can do at your house, I am firmly in favor of a waiver you need to sign if your not getting vaxed that waives the hospital of any of their duties to treat you, I always spout self accountability rhetoric, that's my olive branch to a vax that's about as trustworthy as the communists pushing it, in my opinion.
    • Who comes out on top in these singer vs singer match-ups. All random. No real rhyme or reason.  
    • Hour Of Doom - Cornerstone 
    • Steel Glove - Accept ( a collection of songs pre " Balls to the walls " )  
    • For some reason the first song's melody reminds me so much of Last Christmas by Wham.
    • From Escape Music: Bite The Bullet were originally formed in 1986 by singer songwriter Mick Benton and drummer Graham Cowling. They met in 1984 when they both joined West London rock band “Mother’s Ruin”. Thanks to the legendary Greg Lake, Benton managed to secure a solo deal with Atlantic Records and he asked Cowling to play drums. Its good to see that their collaboration is still strong to this very day. In 1986 “Bite the Bullet” were formed and the music played was in the style of Foreigner, Toto and Mr. Mister, an album was released in 1989 to some quiet success. The music was warmly received and the band earned themselves some radio airplay. However, britpop was coming into the forefront and a cancelled support slot with the mighty ELO saw the band disheartened and whilst they never really disbanded there was a long period of inactivity. Benton and Cowling always remained friends and they still played in pubs and clubs over the years which brings is up to 2019 when their debut was reissued on CD. It ignited a flame in the two men and brought the original recording back to the forefront again and old fans reappraised the album whilst new fans joined in. In January 2021 the year started with “Black and White” (ESM349) and the band have gone from strength to strength. They combine Mr Mister with Asia to produce a nice smooth rock pop sound. Mick and Graham Have continued writing new material and here we are with an exciting new third release “End of the Line” and the result is amazing; the new songs have given the band a new fresh sound, bringing us into 2022. What a way to start the new year!   Release Date: 21 Jan, 2022  Catalogue no: ESM361  1 Quicksand 4:20  2 Over You 4:26  3 End of the line 3:49  4 Cold Wind 3:45 5 Roundabout 4:20  6 Lost for Words 4:12  7 September Sun 4:03  8 Band of Brothers 4:35  9 Let it Go 3:56  10 Camaraderie 5:02  11 Base Jumping 4:11  12 Sunflowers and Roses 4:08 Line up Mick Benton – Lead Vocals, Guitar, Bass, Keyboards Graham Cowling – Drums Malcolm Jones – Guitar
