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.

    • His music videos are always good: either very silly, or very sexy. So I've got this queued up on the PC. Looking forward to it. 
    • New single "The Animal" dropped today, not bad at all:    
    • I dig the new tune!  Honestly, might be my favorite yet from these guys. I like that this kind of gets away from the  Bon Jovi Country vibe they sometimes had on the debut.  For me, this has a fresh, big sound to it.   Will have the new one on my radar.
    • 3rd single... Love It   
    • New video for 'Dance'.

    • After releasing two albums with AOR/Melodic Rock band Streets, ”1st” (1983) and ”Crimes In Mind” (1985), lead singer and keyboardist Steve Walsh returned to Kansas, to revive the band along with original members Phil Ehart (drums) and Rich Williams (Guitar). Furthermore, the lineup was completed by the addition of bassist Billy Greer (from Streets) and young, promising, former Dixie Dregs guitar man Steve Morse, who also contributed with composing skills and backing vocals. Eventually, the group’s ”Power” album was released in November of 1986, rather much to the vintage Kansas and Prog Rock purists dismissal, as I recall it. The heavier sound/direction and absence of violinist Robby Steinhardt, songwriter/keyboardist/guitarist Kerry Livgren and bassist Dave Hope were all contributing factors to the disapproval, it seems. However, mentioned ”Power” should perhaps instead be judged on its own merits, as it is what it is. Put out in a time when commercial Melodic Hardrock was very much in fashion, with FM rock radio and MTV as ever the important ingredients of daily life. In the end, the album actually landed at a respectable No. 35 on the Billboard chart, while the single/ballad ”All I Wanted” eventually rose to an even more impressive No. 19.

    • They have a real knack for writing (and producing!) songs that could be featured in '80s coming of age films and I mean that in the most complimentary way possible. Really putting the retro in retrowave
