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.

    • Ezzakly. I was having this conversation with my friend this weekend. It took us a while, but we're finally building up our football program. I believe that has a lot to do with the amount of immigrants we've had. They move to Canada and have no love for hockey; they wanna play football. Wish this had happened decades ago. My folks never let me play hockey, because it's so bloody expensive, but there wasn't a decent football program. 
    • I think I recall listening to one of their albums. Don't they have a Southern Rock/Country vibe? Or maybe I'm just reading into their name, which makes me think of Brad Paisley.

    • Photo credit: Tim Saccenti Metallica dropped an atomic bomb this morning, announcing the brand new album 72 Seasons and sharing the first single, “Lux Æterna”. “Lux Æterna” is old school thrash, picking right up where Hardwired… to Self-Destruct left off, only this time, guitarist Kirk Hammett was involved in the writing. 72 Seasons will be available April 14, 2023, via the band’s own Blackened Recordings. Produced by Greg Fidelman with founding members James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich, and clocking in at over 77 minutes, the 12-track album is Metallica’s first full length collection of new material since 2016’s Hardwired…To Self-Destruct. Here’s the track listing for 72 Seasons: 01. 72 Seasons 02. Shadows Follow 03. Screaming Suicide 04. Sleepwalk My Life Away 05. You Must Burn! 06. Lux Æterna 07. Crown Of Barbed Wire 08. Chasing Light 09. If Darkness Had A Son 10. Too Far Gone? 11. Room Of Mirrors 12. Inamorata “72 seasons. The first 18 years of our lives that form our true or false selves,” said Hetfield of the album’s title. “The concept that we were told ‘who we are’ by our parents. A possible pigeonholing around what kind of personality we are. I think the most interesting part of this is the continued study of those core beliefs and how it affects our perception of the world today. Much of our adult experience is reenactment or reaction to these childhood experiences. Prisoners of childhood or breaking free of those bondages we carry.”   https://bloody-disgusting.com/music/3741721/metallica-returns-with-new-album-single-and-tour/
    • Yeah I wasn't expecting them to do much as it is their first World Cup since 86....at least they are competing hard.....now if they start making the World Cup on a regular basis then expectations will rise in the years to come....
    • New single. From Frontiers: Revolution Saints, the band centered around vocalist/drummer Deen Castronovo, have returned with a new line-up and a new single, 'Eagle Flight'. Castronovo is joined by new companions, bassist Jeff Pilson and guitarist Joel Hoekstra for Revolution Saints 2.0 and 'Eagle Flight' is their brand new musical statement announcing their arrival.    Revolution Saints was initially put together by Serafino Perugino, President and Head of A&R for Frontiers Records, to showcase the stunning voice of Deen Castronovo (Journey, Bad English, Hardline). Castronovo has always been a well respected drummer, but fans who took note of his background vocals over his career and who attended Journey shows and saw him take lead vocals on 'Mother, Father' during the band's set, came to realize he also had an amazing voice. Revolution Saints was, and always has been, a vehicle to show the world Deen's incredible singing talents.   For the first three Revolution Saints albums, "Revolution Saints", "Light In The Dark", and "Rise", Deen was joined by bassist/vocalist Jack Blades (Night Ranger) and guitarist Doug Aldrich (The Dead Daisies, ex-Whitesnake, DIO). Produced by Alessandro Del Vecchio, those three albums brought back the classic melodic rock style that thrilled and delighted legions of fans in the ‘80s and ‘90s and still does today! Inspiring, uplifting vocals, soaring melodies, and hooks for days is what you get in spades across those three albums.    While Revolution Saints MK I left an indelible mark on the melodic rock world, it was time for MK II to be born. Deen, having recently re-joined Journey, was feeling invigorated and inspired and ready to sing his ass off. Filling Blades and Aldrich's shoes would be no easy feat, but, mercifully, the exact right guys were found for the job. Joel Hoekstra is a current member of Whitesnake, Trans-Siberian Orchestra, and Iconic, as well as having his own solo project, Joel Hoekstra's 13 and is an absolutely stunning guitar player, able to play multiple styles. Jeff Pilson, currently a member of Foreigner, Black Swan, and The End Machine, is also known for his time in Dokken and his more recent production work. Two stellar musicians to compliment Deen's singing and drumming is exactly what was needed for Revolution Saints 2.0 and that's exactly what we've got here.    Fans of Revolution Saints first three releases are going to find much to be delighted with here with the new, rejuvenated Rev Saints and their brand new single, 'Eagle Flight'!    A new studio album will be released in the first half of 2023.    Line-up:  Deen Castronovo: lead vocals, drums  Joel Hoekstra: guitars  Jeff Pilson: bass        
    • And unfortunately, for Canada, they're all better teams.
