As I go through my collection I will probably set up a bunch of random band threads, but these guys, imo, definitely deserve a thread of their own. The choice is easy for me - 'Tears and Triumph' by a landslide, but I do like both albums.

 

'Tears and Triumph' was one of those fairytale Cash Converters for $5 finds for me, and to this day it remains a highly regarded disc... completely filler-free until perhaps the last song which is a bit of a filler. 'Daily battle', on the other hand, was a huge disappointment after I eagerly snagged it in a trade long ago. 'Over and done' is as good a song as they ever did, but the rest didn't really do much for me. Not a bad disc, I guess it just had a lot to live up to...

 

What's your pick? Thoughts on the band?

I have to disagree...I love 1st Avenue and both of their albums but for me Daily Battle is the stronger album. Maybe it's because I heard Daily Battle long before I ever heard Tears And Triumph?

 

From Tears And Triumph my fav tracks are:

 

Heaven In Your Arms

Once In A Million years

Hurt Before

 

From Daily Battle my picks are:

 

Feel Love

Over and Done

Maybe Tomorrow Never Comes

Time After Time

Can't Take My Heart Away

Call Me

I voted for "Tears and Triumph" too (love the keyboard intro), & was also kinda disappointed in "Daily Battle". Though I prefer fellow Dutchmen Zinatra to this band....

Voted "Tears And Triumph" since I only have that one. I'll have to give it another listen real soon; actually, why not today; it was alright but didn't blow me away the first 2 times I heard it and I was looking forward to hearing it since it was praised on the main site.

Psst...wake up dude, you might miss something about this shit band :)

Sorry to bore you with quality mate, perhaps you best go listen to the new Extreme and Pop Evil discs to hear how *vomits all over the room* good music is made. :lol:;)

Just giving you a hard time bro...but I would even listen to Judas Priest before I'd ever play this band again...

These guys are fine. Surprised you hate them so much if you like Treat. 'Tears and Triumph' is excellent.
