Im spinning the AWESOME Rain - house of dreams, for the first time in ages. Damn these songs are awesome!! But i always knew the production wasnt great, but id forgotten how bad it was! Its shocking! How can such a great album with a big name like Bormann have such a crap demo like production?

I'd like to know this too. They're obviously demo recordings, but why were they not spruced up for this realease?

 

And I agree, this album has some of the best songs Bormann has ever recorded. The hooks all over this thing are just perfect.

As great as the songs are, the disc is just plain unlistenable because of the juvenile production. A real shame!!

Is this the disc with the song Ain't Found Heaven Yet on it?

Yes. Great song too. Great pity, this CD, as the songs are excellent.

There's some good tunes on it, but that's about it. I'll take the "Stronger" album any day. Remonds me of a good Charade/Jaded Heart combo.

It's hard for me to get past poor production. Sometimes it just takes time, I mean I love Edguy's Tinnitus Sanctum. How much worse can this be?

Really? I think im one of the biggest Edguy fans on the planet! and have always had a spot in my player for them since I first heard Kingdom Of Madness, I think in 97, now that's not even close to what they would evolve into, but I was very very nervous after Hellfire Club, as upon the first listening to that disc, my only thought was, "HOLY FUCKING CHRIST!! how will they ever top this? this is their pinnacle album" and while being more commercial, and not really anything like Hellfire, at least Rocket Ride produced some of their best overall song's ever, The first bad feeling I had in my gut about TS, was when I read an interview with Tobias, I don't remember exactly the dates and times, but paraphrasing, he said they were going to start writing songs, then go into the studio, and all in all it boiled down to they should have the complete process done recorded and released all in about a 4 week time span!!! I knew Tinnitus Sanctum was going to sound, rushed, half assed, with mediocre songs, how long did they take on Hellfire? wasnt it like almost a year? then on top of that, he stressed the point that it wasnt going to be anything like their early stuff, they dont see the need to play heavy just to be heavy! well that didnt bother me on Rocket Ride, because the songs were there, but I listend to TS once all the way through, then anytime ive tried to give it another chance, I get about 4 or 5 songs into it, and HAVE TO STOP IT, and put on Hellfire! it's like giving a heroin addict fake heroin! after he does it, he's feinding 10x more for the real thing! sorry to rant, it's just my point is Rain has terrible production, and yes knowing how Mike B is today, is very suprising, but the song's are there, and it would be great if somehow he would re-record it now, but only if he did an exact re-record, cause you can clearly tell that Rain disc suffers from inexperience and possibly lack of access to better equipment, but that too is not acceptable, because I can take a cheap condenser mic, and figure out a way to make it sound as good as an expensive condenser mic, so it had to have been inexperience, but the songs are clearly worth him pondering over the thought? I'd support it!

What isnt that bad? Edguy's TS? or Rain? they arent even the same genre of music, for one thing, I thought of Edguy's TS the only thing good about it was the production, Rain cd, yes the productions piss poor, and very amatuer sounding! You can't give someone a cd like Hellfire Club, then give them TS and expect anything other then disgustingly bad reviews! it's better then most out on the market yes, in America that aint saying much, but why would anybody even listen to it, when they have Mandrake, Rocket Ride, and without a doubt, one of the greatest cd's ever released, Hellfire Club? answer, because theyve never heard those 3 cd's!

I was talking about TS yes.

 

Bad reviews? I thought it was a good album. Not as good as Hellfire Club.... but nowhere near what you are saying.

Like I said, I didnt hear one thing on it that made me thing "fuck yes! this is good" when I first heard Rocket Ride, although it started off with a kind of weak track, by the time The Asylum started I had my Jeep shaking so hard I thought the windshield was going to shatter! nothing even remotely had me doing that on TS! I was just let down, Im not saying it's a bad album, like its not got talent, im just saying theres not 1 song on that whole album that did anything to me other then make me stop it and put in Hellfire!

'Tit In His Scrotum' isn't a bad album, just very run-of-the-mill and average. I think only that ballad about the rose stood out for me and the rest just went in one ear and out the other.

Ain't that the story of your life?

What? Did you say something?

 

But in all seriousness, yes, this is sadly how I roll. It's not my fault the human race bores me. I remember random facts about porn and music and that's about the extent of it. And pugs. Did you know that in ancient China pugs were actually designed and created for the amusement of their masters? They were bred and mixed up in order to be jesters for the emperor's amusement. :lol: No wonder they rule so much.

    • Haha poor DLR. But Axl is one of the most under or over-rated singers depending what camp you are in. I think he is great.
    • Wow, this'd make me happy. 
    • didn't see this coming??? https://www.facebook.com/100044481307670/posts/443250043834369/  
    • Intrigued who you didn't know. Assume it's the couple I quickly looked up, lol. 1. Gronwall. Love both versions of HEAT but Gronwall undoubtedly has the stronger voice.  2. I went with Rexon, but only because we only have such a small sample size of Keyes? Is he still even in Crashdiet? As much as I love Crazy Lixx, I have to say, if I knew more about this Keyes fella I'd probably pick him because on voice alone, I wouldn't say I'm a Rexon fan. Thankfully his band is killer.  3. Whiteman. lol, I like the guy but not many he'd beat in this. Since I haven't heard Rhino Bucket for a few decades, for good reason, I had to give it to Whiteman. 4. Gotta go with Axl. Again, not a mad fan of his voice, but respect is due for his range. Never thought much of DLR at all, so Axl in this one easily.  5. Again, don't really like either of these guys' voice to be fair. Love Keel, but, gotta say, on a purely vocal level, is Ron Keel the worst vocalist in all of hard rock? Quite possibly (not including that ass licker from The Darkness, of course). Don't like Shortino, but admittedly when he sings the more melodic/commercial stuff he actually scrubs up pretty good (eg. Badd Boyz). So my pick is Shortino. 6. lol, two more voices I don't individually like. Swan sound so strained all the time, and I never quite loved Tramp's voice, despite being in a sensational band. I actually went with Swan in this instance.  7. Hetfield over Mustaine. Don't really care for either, but content with my pick.  8. Jizzy goes alright, was never a fan of McMaster. Much as I liked Dangerous Toys, his voice was pretty awful at time, to be fair.  9. Bach, easily. Love Steelheart and Mike, but Bach all the way. 10. Wow, surprised by this result so far. Prime Dokken is as good as it gets, but on a purely vocal level, definitely got to give this one to Meniketti, who's a pretty damn fine vocalist.  11. Easy one. Not a fan of Vescera, love Tempest (especially when he was still making good music). 12. Another pretty straightforward one. Blades is solid, but Gramm has an unmistakably fantastic voice.   
    • CRT is what they are trying to force into our elementary schools, it teaches kids that they have privilege if they are white, if they are black they are oppressed, and no matter what they do in life all the rules and laws in this country are racist and rigged so if your a minority its all working against you, it's garbage, and it's further proof that these fucking cockroaches really are not interested in trying to improve race relations in the US, they are only into playing identity politics and making sure racism not only survives but thrives, if racism goes away then so does their meal ticket.
    • Shit I was into that Duke Nukem shit,
    • As an elitist my first, second and third reaction was a resounding no.   But then after a little self reflection and attesting that I don't have to have a hard drive of beeps, bits and squeals made it OK.   As mentioned clearly noting the format is key.   I believe we have some "Band Made CDR's" onsite as well, but as stated those are official releases and no other format.   While we are going down the rabbit whole, why not include cassette's? Maybe even vinyl? But the caveat would be that the release fits the parameters of the site and no other format exists, cuz at the end of the day its getting the cool bands seen and known to the elite crowd that resides herein.
