Newman - 'Decade'

Recommended Posts

Aside from Jez's mention of this in the 'First Spins' thread I'm not sure I've seen this mentioned here at all. Which is a crime.

 

A few years ago Frontline delivered 'Almost unreleased', which if I recall correctly, was better than most if not all the new releases that year. Well, along with Frontline, Newman are one of my top melodic rock bands and they are not to be outdone here. This is brilliant. Of course, I speak of disc 2, which is all previously unreleased material, totaling 14 "new" tracks!!!

 

And the quality is excellent. There's no need to beat around the bush - this thing absolutely MURDERS 'Primitive Soul', which is their weakest hour. But more than that, it is right up with the best album they have ever released. Songs like 'Coming home tonight', 'Life after love', 'Tell it to my heart', 'Can you hear me now', 'Don't ever say forever' and 'World comes down' - for starters - are honestly as good as the best I've heard from Newman, which is pure excellence. Seriously, how these tracks are sitting here as previously unreleased is completely mind-blowing to me. The majority of bands in the genre today would kill for songs this good.

 

Anyway, this is easily a top 5 finisher for me this year. Absolutely freakin' excellent. Again.

Haha... yeah, got to thank Jez for that because I thought the same too... hence my delayed listening. :(

    • I'm not in the camp enough to say this is utter shit because honestly, it's not. It is capable melodic hard rock and if I put myself in the honest box, if nothing else was considered and this came along in a year like 1996 or something, it'd be a well appreciated album. BUT, all things considered, I agree that it's a pass. It's all capable, but it's very bland and it's just impossible to listen to this project without wondering why it's still called Sunstorm without JLT. It doesn't make sense.  Anyway, I thought 'Hold The Night' was a passable keeper but the rest is predictable, uninspired and bored. 
    • lol, I wonder who he thinks that is going to appeal to? 
    • I'd be amazed if there's any Tesla fans anywhere that don't like 'Bust a nut.' Is this really considered one of their weaker albums? 
    • Ok. I can understand your thinking regarding one`s favorite bands. In my case it was  Bon Jovi. First album I ever bought was Slippery, liked NEw Jersey even better. Saw them live few times, but after 1995 only some good songs on each album but still bought albums,  since Richie left I cant stand their latest albums or even live. So from that scenario I see that I am not just following my favorite bands regardles what they put out.     But in Tesla case I do stlll enjoy their releases, even those post 2010. A admit that Shock had some filler but also some of their best songs post 2000 like The Mission.   I do miss the heavier  element that Tommy brought. songs like  Dont de-rock me, Action talks.
    • Blondie on the right of the second shot is PERFECTION! 
    • In rough order.....   Dangerous Toys – Pissed Michael Sweet – Michael Sweet Motley Crue – Motley Crue Great White – Sail Away Gun – Swagger LA Guns – Vicious Circle Jackyl – Push Comes To Shove Cinderella – Still Climbing Electric Boys – Freewheelin’ Enuff Z Nuff - Seven Gilby Clarke – Pawnshop Guitars Juno Roxas – Far From Here Kiss – Kiss My Ass Alice Cooper – The Last Temptation Manic Eden – Manic Eden Big Bang Babies – Black Market Tuff – Fist First Freak Of Nature – Gathering Of The Freaks Sass Jordan – Rats Trixter – Undercovers The Heavy’s – Metal Marathon
    • Another one from this year that hasn't had much fanfare. These guys are always great value.  Very, very solid, Killer Hard Rock!!! I get a Robert Mason "vibe" with the vocals, which is always a good thing.
