Big news for all the Honeymoon Suite fans here. Can't wait for this one.

 

The samples below sound pretty damned good aswell.

This whole new album has really been somewhat of a return musically to the sound that we had in the 80's. It's produced by Tom Treumuth who did our first record, so it seems we've all come full circle, hence the title "Clifton Hill".

The result is a incredibly mature and inspired album with all the trademarks of the classic Honeymoon Suite sound, chock full or great rock songs and fascinating mid-tempos and ballads.

Final tracklisting of Clifton Hill includes: She Ain't Alright; Tired O' Waitin' On You; Riffola; Ordinary; The House; Why Should I?; Down 2 Bizness; Sunday Morning; That's All U Got; Restless; Separate Lives.

These guys have potential to make a good Loverboy 'Just getting started'-styled disc, imo.

They also have the potential to make a 3rd-rate Modern Rock disc. This one could go either way.... Anyone checked out the samples?

If this was some new band I'd be saying "Hey, these guys are pretty cool and I love the fact they're trying to sound a bit 80's!" But this is NOT a new band, and this is not "FEEL IT AGAIN."

 

For me this is just another 80's band trying to sound modern (unfortunately). I'll keep spinning "THE BIG PRIZE," thank you.

Truth. The last 2 sounded like that. But the potential is there, imo.

So this is not that good. Opener "She Aint Alright" sounds okay, decent guitar licks, but this is nothing that a million Modern Rock bands aren't already doing better. The occasional touch of keyboards is the only thing that differentiates this from being any other Modern Rock band, and - frankly - STORY OF THE YEAR they 'aint. LOVERBOY nailed the mix of old & new on "Just Getting Started", but this is just run-of-the-mill stuff...

I just picked this up tonight at my local cd shop....Wal-Mart, for under 12$. Not bad, not mind blowing either. They did not pull a Loverboy and release the comeback album of all comeback albums, but it is better than Lemon Tongue from a few years back.

 

As Koogles pointed out to me in an e-mail it reminds him of recent Harem Scarem. If so it can't be that bad....right?

Yeah, it'd be foolish to try and compare this with any good modern hard rock disc from the year, but as a fresh offering from a old school melodic rock/AOR band I don't think it's bad at all. A few fillers and even the highlights just fall a little short of true bliss, but I'm actually enjoying this disc. Not bad at all... and a much better effort than some of the tired rehashes like Shadowman, Mad Max and Valentine that are going about this year. And yeah... not a scratch on the Loverboy disc either.

wow, going back and reading comments I'm shocked about the little love for this album. I think it is one of their best. I think it is a bit more rock oriented and a little less pop-rock which pushed the album into "better" status for me. they always seemed to be missing a bit of something on all their albums, even the ones with the huge hits.

Still a good album in my book and I am still playing it fairly regularly. Can't wait to see them again at Firefest in October.

    • Another one I'm sure I've gone on about in the past, but apparently no thread yet.  He doesn't seem to make a lot of music, but when he does it is awesome. Such as this... Paul Bartolome     -    Reflections, Pt.1 1    .    Fractures (feat. Dave Escamilla) 2    .    Anxiety (U Just Don't Get It) 3    .    While We're Still Young 4    .    Burn It Down (feat. David Bartolome) 5    .    Hypocrite   Easily one of the best songs of the year so far-       From the previously very awesome 'Screaming through the radio' EP-  
    • I know I've posted about this hombre several times before, but apparently not in his own thread. This must change as I find him to be so awesome but no one seems to acknowledge his existence. Not just here, but his youtube channel and reach seems to be so small. Crazy for someone who produces bone crunching quality on a madly consistent basis.  Eric Dalton     -    Playing Favorites (2022) 1    .    Calling Card 2    .    Oblivion 3    .    Head in the Clouds 4    .    X My Heart 5    .    Infection 6    .    My Demons 7    .    Solace 8    .    A Part of Me 9    .    Without You 10    .    Deception     Sorry, I know I've posted this before, but his youtube channel features all three of his (excellent) albums in full if interest permits. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCb2I3-4_UvFnWWTcXBBLPYA  
    • Interesting what bands catch on this forum and the ones that don't. To me, this is a pretty good band and I'm a bit surprised, on a forum where bands like Shiraz Lane and Bad City are appreciated, there seems to be no interest in these guys. Good band that does, for whatever reason, remind me of the likes of the aforementioned Bad City.  There's a bit of hit and miss about the debut and it's far from perfect, but a pretty cool band worthy of mention and interest on a forum such as this.  Anyway, this was one of my favourites of the album- For die-hards, I stumbled across this non-album track.  
    • New video for 'I Will Be Stronger' feat. Joel Hoekstra.    
    • Very nice piece of modern rock on offer here. Lot to like on this one.  Fame on Fire     -    Welcome to the Chaos 1    .    Intro 2    .    Welcome to the Chaos (feat. Spencer Charnas of Ice Nine Kills) 3    .    Ketamine 4    .    Cut Throat 5    .    Emo Shit (feat. Kody Lavigne) 6    .    Lost In Doubt 7    .    Robbery 8    .    Signs 9    .    Plastic Heart 10    .    Rotting Away 11    .    Back Then 12    .    Jaded 13    .    Dead or Alive      
    • Welcome, album of the year? Love this project with vigour. I snuck 'Saturday' on the playlist I put on with the kids in the car, lol. Can't wait to hear any of the songs I haven't already heard and showered in love from this. 
    • Did anyone notice these guys released another new album?  As expected, it's pretty weak and more proof of their solid decline.  HOWEVER!  There is actually a good song on it. It's only one, but I kind of clapped and cheered when I heard this. I used to love these guys so much, and still love the albums I always loved from these guys but it's been some barren years. It was good to hear them do what they used to do with great ease.      
    • Couple of okay songs, but otherwise as expected above. No surprises, exactly what you'd expect from these guys in 2022.     
    • Not every song is a hit, but another pretty decent one mini-album. I like some of the gear on this one.  Villain of the Story     -    Divided 1    .    Never Again 2    .    Jester 3    .    Karma 4    .    Under My Skin 5    .    Losing Control 6    .    Wrong 7    .    Don't Go 8    .    Divided    
    • Not sure if folk know, but they got back together and released an EP this year. Anberlin     -    Silverline 1    .    Two Graves 2    .    Nothing Lost 3    .    Body Language 4    .    Asking 5    .    Circles It's not amazing, but I do really like this song from it-
