Passion - "Loaded Gun"

Recommended Posts

I was over at CD Baby the other night to pick up the Saints Of The Underground cd and figured I'd grab another cd just to make the S&H worthwhile and came across Passion - Loaded Gun cd for sale. The samples were kickass IMO but there were next to no comments on their page at the HH main site. Just wondering of I made a mistake grabbing this or if it's worth the 10 bones I dropped on it.

 

BTW, It was pretty cool of the guitarist to drop me an email after I purchased it thanking me for picking it up, that was very cool on his part I thought.

Funny... I had the Passion: "Loaded Gun" CD in my hands today. I was about to play it but then saw War & Peace laying there and I went with that instead. "Load Gun" is a pretty good release... nothing exceptional, but not bad at all. They also have released a CD called "The Beginning" which I like alittle better.

If you want my honest thoughts I'd really have to call these guys quite an average run-of-the-mill indie hard rock band. Honestly, they're not awful but the songs are so safe and there's nothing that stands out at all. Very simple production, songs and delivery. I'm surprised they have it at CD Baby. I thought it was really quite rare - might even be worth buying to sell on ebay! :lol:

I have both Loaded Gun and In the Beginning, originals. I agree with both Geoff and Dave's comments.

 

Very average, but listenable. I hope they are rare even though I doubt I would sell them.

When I was listening to the Passsion samples I caught myself comparing them to the band Disturbance, nothing really earth shattering or memorable, but I always find myself listening to it every now and again and like it while it's playing. I have a feeling Passion is going to be the same way.

How'd you go, Rick? As soon as I saw your post I immediately ordered the Saints of the Underground CD too. I spent about 2 hours listening to samples of other bands to maybe include in the package (a lot of modern hard rock bands too) but eventually I settled on only one other CD by a band called Guilty Pleasure. Sounds a lot like Loud N' Clear in the samples. Anyone know this band? Any good?

I really like this thing. I cannot for the life of me think of who they remind me of though (Barracuda, maybe?). Simple, straight forward hard rock but nice to have playing while drinking a few cold ones. Unfortunately it turns out there are 2 very big scratches on the disc and it skips on the last 2 tracks. Guess I'll be calling CD Baby about an exchange.

I ended up getting these two discs in a trade. My opinion is still pretty much the same on them. Average, but not bad at all. Very simple. I must say, though, that the vocalist on 'The beginning 90/91' is terrible. He actually sounds okay on the two ballads, which are by far the best two songs off the disc, but what a bad voice. I'm glad they got a new vocalist for the 'Loaded Gun' disc as he probably would have completely ruined that one. :lol:

    • 'Hail To The Heroes' out February 11th. New song 'Primeval Desire'.    
    • Battlegod Productions. Although I ordered directly from the bands website...The band messsaged to say they were waiting for payment to clear after it was received, then messaged to say they had received payment about 2 weeks later...still waiting on it actually being sent...ah well
    • That's actually a pretty cool song. Better than his previous bands for sure. I gotta agree with Auslander, though. Something a bit off-putting about those backing vocals. Some are nice, but particularly the ones at the start of the chorus are, as I said, "off-putting."  I've had lukewarm reactions to backing vocals in the past, though, and sometimes I get past it. Hopefully this is one of those occasions?
    • I have been summoned. #1 - plods along and goes absolutely nowhere. Sorry, no cup of seme- uh, tea. #2 - certainly a bit more lively that the first one. Not bad, but it's very, very basic stuff. Okay tune. #3 - yeah, sadly just not my thing. As weak as, if not weaker than the first track.  Sorry cob, I think it's going to have to be a pass from me.  
    • Yeah, I do agree and I don't want people to get me wrong. I'm not a defund the police type or anything like that. My respect for the police is at the lowest it has been in my entire life, but I hope it is something that can be restored in time... though the longer this all goes on, the less hope I have at all for a future worth looking forward to. But that's another story.  I do have some regard for police officers "just following orders" but I've seen and heard way too much to have too much sympathy. And I agree that it is the policy makers that I despise most of all, but I'd have liked to have seen some sort of resistance from the police in all of this. It's been my biggest issue through the whole thing. In the media, government and the police force, there are so few voices (and definitely no significant voices) opposing the ridiculous nature of what has happened over the last two years and is still ongoing.  I don't understand it all, but are the police part of the government, or is there some separation there? If you're given absolutely absurd rules to enforce, I would like to see opposition to it. And as I do with everything, I think what I would do in their situation. If I was a police officer, and I had a family to feed, what would I do? Would I stand outside a grocery store and fine a couple who removed their masks as they walked out the store? Sure as all fuckery, I would not. I've been asked by several officers throughout the last couple of years to put my mask on before a fine was issued, so I'm 100%, definitely not just painting all police with the same brush. I know there's exceptions to every rule. But for any officer who's first instinct was to fine for mask breaches, or insane area restrictions or any of the entirely petty, pathetic laws we've had to endure over the last couple of years, for them I have no respect whatsoever. Even if you're put in the terrible situation they've been put in, there's still a way you can handle it, and a lot of the ways I've seen and heard it handled is not something I can respect.  Anyway, I watched a cool video today. It's as if this guy took every thought I've had on the whole pandemic and said it in proper, intelligent words. If I wasn't as dumb as a wooden post these are the words I'd be saying-  
    • With a rack like that, I'm sure she is.
    • Didn't see anything on this and 1 the new songs are real nice and 2 the Dare Force connection and Johnny's Minnesotian presence just makes it all to epic! His debut solo release Truth or Dare is out now and the 3 video tracks are really good, heck @Geoff my even like it.   I am partial to #2 atm. https://www.facebook.com/JohnnyONeilOfficial https://www.johnnyoneil.com/
