Am I the only twat listening to this??

 

I know they're only teenagers but this album rules.

 

The second half of the album in particular is killer - check out the fantastic 'Life' (one of my fav songs at the moment - great chorus....almost AOR) and mega ballad 'Heaven (Its Not Here)'......killer chorus.

 

The only song I dont like is the ballad 'A Million Nights' which stinks like a Scorpions Z side, with a thick accent to boot (accent on nearly all other tracks in fine for me).

 

I think it would appeal to Leverage, Poodles, Avantasia, Eclipse....even Brother Firetribe fans.

Are these guys singing in English now? I think I remember hearing of them before but they were singing in their native tongue.

OK, Ive been listening to this all morning whilst painting and Im going to go out on a limb and say that this is at least as good as the FIRST Leverage album (which is MUCH better than the 2nd IMO).

 

I love this thing - the solos are just mind blowing (esp on the second half) and the choruses really hit the mark.

 

Miles better IMO than its rivals (ie 2nd Levereage, Avantasia, Edguy, Edens Curse).

 

I harshly included this in my list at No 15.......after just 2 listens.......I reckon top 10 for this baby, and in a year like this has been, that's pretty damned good.

 

& I still maintain that 'Life' is absolutely fucking wicked. AOR chorus made in heaven.

 

Cheers

I hated the debut. Still wondering if I should bother with this one. Is it seriously any good, Glen, or are you toying with us? Keeping in mind I thought the debut was crap.

'Breakaway' is a fair example of the album.......although all 5 tracks on the second side are better and the last 2 destroy this song.

 

Avoid 'A Million Miles' like the plague tho - that's the hideous ballad I was referring to.

 

Not really sure if this would be your thing - if you liked the 1st Leverage album you will probably dig this.

Yeah, heard the myspace tracks and they didn't work out well for me. I'll see how I go and if I can track this down for a listen I might try it.

Some of the tracks might not be your thing, but i'd be gobsmacked if you didnt adore the last 2 tracks. 2 of the best songs ive heard all year.

 

Plus 'Sinner' continues to kick my arse. Great rocker with a killer solo.

Every time I see this thread, I think it says Rock 'N Roll Chicken. That'd be awesome. Still haven't heard this, but I still want to.

Is that a chain restaurant? I'd eat there.

I'm going to give it a go after my Lynch Mob / Faster Pussycat kick. Maybe even tonight... as there's probably plenty of time to give it a go.

Just finished spinning it. Wasn't so bad I guess, if not very samey and unspectacular. The whole rhythm section was just too repetitive for me on most the songs. Now, that said... 'That's the way I am' blew me off my seat with it's opening riff and killer verses... just didn't deliver come chorus time. So that was disappointing. And the album closer 'Heaven (Is not here)' is a gem. I really liked that song. 'Sinner' and 'Life' were very good too. The rest, I'd have to pass. Definitely better than the debut though.

Due to a bit of a f*ck up on my behalf, this is spinning again and okay, I'll give them 'That's the way I am'. Pretty killer track. Delicious solo too. Yeah, this is pretty awesome. Admitted.

In actual fact the more you spin this the better it gets. Esp the second half.....and those solos. Pretty much all of those solos are killer. Esp Sinner...I love that solo.

    • New lyric video for 'Save Us From Ourselves'.    
    • 'Hail To The Heroes' out February 11th. New video for 'Primeval Desire'.    
    • Battlegod Productions. Although I ordered directly from the bands website...The band messsaged to say they were waiting for payment to clear after it was received, then messaged to say they had received payment about 2 weeks later...still waiting on it actually being sent...ah well
    • 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.
