Check out this Italian band, great melodic hard rock in the vein of Bon jovi,danger danger,Lynch mob and Adriangale.

The singer reminds me Paul Laine and Jamie Rowe.

One of my favorite cd this year.

The Hungry Heart disc is pretty damn good MHR.

Sure I've heard it before and maybe it's been done better but it's great to hear a band play this kind of music this well in 2008. I think I might like this more than the HEAT release.

It is better than the likes of Homerun, H.A.R.D and Hardreams (what's up with all the H's!!!) but like Andre said, it's miles away from competing with the likes of HEAT and Marcello/Vestry, imo.

 

To me, it just sounds like the band are going for a sound that is out of their grasp, at this point in time. They want to sound like the big acts from 1989/1990 but they just don't have the ability, yet, imo. And the vocals do hold them back further too. Hooks/choruses range from a couple of great ones to quite a few pretty average ones. Not a bad disc, but not one of the best from 2008, imo.

:yikes: one of the most shocking things ive heard in many a year.

 

That would be near the bottom of a list of every album ive heard in the last 10 years.

Wow you're hard to please. I think it's solid stuff. Sure it's nothing mind blowing but it's got some good tunes and the singer doesn't bother me at all. I mean he's no worse than the accent you get from Klaus Meine when I listen to The Scorpions.

As I said, it's not bad, but there are many better CDs from this year and every other year.

I didn't say their weren't better cds from this year or other years.

Hell this won't even come close to my top 20 or even 30, I was just saying it's solid and I enjoyed it.

Sharks are a myth... unless you come via Adelaide. Just come over the top end... although then a crocodile will probably get you. Oh well, worth a try anyway.

H.EA.T is a very good band, they are very young (around 20 ) that's good.

In my top ten I must add tesla, Poley rivera and TNT, 3 albums I really like.

Now I'm listening the new Enuff z'nuff, circle II circle and Eguy.

Still Hungry heart is my favorite by now.

I like the Hungryheart album quite a bit as well (have been listening to it all week in my car stereo), but I agree with the above posters that it's nowhere near the top of the AOTY list. That spot would be occupied IMHO by "Brother Firetribe: Heart Full Of Fire." I REALLY enjoy listening to M/V, H.E.A.T., Gypsy Rose, and a bunch of other strong albums released this calendar year, but Brother Firetribe tops them all for me.......I do hope that Hungryheart continues to progress as a band and puts out an even better second album, they've definitley gained me as a fan :headbanger: .

Wow, this CD's in a bit of trouble with me. Spun it again yesterday;

 

First track is a dud, the second song, 'Stealing The Night' is my fave of the whole album... but what happens next from song 3-7 is that they are complete fillers for me. I skipped through them all on my spin yesterday! 'Hard Lovin’ Woman' is only okay, but the only saving grave for this album is that all three of the last tracks are very strong. Love the last three, especially 'It Takes Two'. But you just can't have that many fillers in the middle of a disc, imo.

 

I know to each their own, opinions are opinions, free love, flower power hippy hugs etc... but whoever is saying this is better than HEAT (or even comparable) is on some messy drugs. ;)

I guess I'm on drugs because I like it a little more than Heat but Heat might be just a little on the lite side for me. I believe it's track 4 "Only One" that is my favorite song, I think that song is awesome. There's 5 or 6 other tunes I like quite a bit as well but there are few tracks towards the end that I'd clasify as filler.

I know many people have been dissapointed by Tnt since Mills arrived.

In Norway they still get a good success.

In Atlantis there is some very strange songs like Peter Sellers (weird track) but also some great ones, like Atlantis and ''me and dad''.

About Hungry heart I really love Rock city,river of soul,only one and Gina (micheal bolton cover), I must try the original, I don't bother about M. Bolton except for his first two cds.

Hey even I don't like this better than H.E.A.T, & that was one overrated & mediocre album. This is kinda okay stuff, that's definitely reminiscent of the Marcello/Vestry album (but without the keyboards). I reckon there would have been about 8 million bands doing this sort of thing in the mid-80's, & even in modern years bands like 91 SUITE absolutely kill this. If they got a keyboard player (the sound is desperately thin), tightened up the harmonies & wrote some stronger tunes they could make a CD worth picking up...

Yeah, although the same could be said for a lot of bands.

    • 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/      
    • I thought of this one today for some reason.  I'm sure everyone here is familiar with "Talking Heads - Psycho Killer" from '77, a very strange track in it's own right, but does anyone here remember the 1980 parody track "Psycho Chicken" by "The Fools"?      
    • That's more like it mate. Your best one so far. Keep it up.
