HUG TIME!

I haven't actually traded with Stefan (though he's bought stuff from me), but can I get in on the hugging too? I'm feeling kind of needy today...

Sweet! It's good to be loved. :wub:

I would, but everytime I come in for a group hug, Matt tries to cop a feel and grab my ass. He has no respect for personal boundaries.

That's true. We must wait 'til Geoff gets here so the two of them can grab each other. I'll settle for the group hug... :)

Sorry one got cracked, that's the risk I guess you run to have them shipped without jewel cases. I usually avoid having a CD set to me with no jewel case for this very reason. But then again, the CDs were free, you just paid for the shipping. I just refunded you back half the shipping cost to make up for the postal services murder of an innocent CD :P

Well you really shouldn't have done that. The risk was on me but thanks for the kind gesture.

Yeah, even though he does talk a lot of nonsense, Stefan is indeed an excellent trader. ;) Couldn't recommend someone more. Great addition to the board for anyone interested in the Finnish music scene.

Me talking nonsense? Surely you think of someone else :whistle:

The rest is true though ;)

I want to publicly announce that i love Stefan and want to have his baby.

What did he do?

 

JEEZ! That about sums up the sad state of the world! Does a man actually have to do something these days in order for another to want his baby?!

 

You disgust me and your perverted view of the world.

Yeah, really Geoff. Lighten up! Stop hating mankind and start loving instead.

 

You're just jealous... <_<

    • I don't get why you would even think that. I was thinking the music should be similar and Kenny's voice is powerful so not much change. But HEAT II slays this. Easily.
    • Erik is running out of ideas.
    • It's a solid effort but not wowing me like prior releases. Then again there are so many effing great releases this year that the bar is high.
    • Perhaps the reason I like it as much as I do is that my expectations were completely in the toilet after Erik's departure. I was expecting garbage... and it's not. I find it quite enjoyable, even if not Tearing Down the Walls level. Unlike with the Journey album, I'm not hearing the production issues people are complaining about, at least not to that degree. It's a hot mix to be sure, but it's not impacting my listening or enjoyment as with Journey. I also wonder if again, the source/platform is making a difference. I'm listening to uncompressed FLAC straight from disc, not streaming or some bit-starved promo files.
    • Which one of these seeming workaholics makes you immediately cringe when you see their name associated with a project?  Did I leave out your personal nemesis? Let us know who it is...    
    • H.E.A.T, with "It's All About Tonight" are literally the band that turned me onto modern hard rock in general, and this site in particular.  So definitely a special place in my heart for this band. Put me firmly in the "likes it a lot" camp on this album.  Is it perfect?  No.  Is it a 98/100?  LOL, no. But I like it a lot. First, I don't hear all the same mix issues that some of you have mentioned.  Is it a little loud in parts?  Yeah, I can hear that.  But it certainly doesn't ruin the songs or anything.  But I don't hear Kenny buried in the mix or the lyrics being unintelligible or anything like that.  I've listened on a good pair of Sony headphones and my car stereo - no issues in either place. Secondly, I definitely appreciate that they kept the harder sound from the Erik era.  The best songs here aren't as good as Erik's best ("Point of No Return", "Rise", and "Come Clean" probably being my top 3) but they are really good.  "Tainted Blood" is excellent (see below, however).  "Wings of an Aeroplane" is also really good.  "Hollywood", which I didn't love before, is growing on me even if I do still hate the chorus.  All in all, I really like the songs on offer here. Thirdly, if I'm going to critique, it's Kenny's vocals.  For the most part, he does an excellent job.  When he's just singing the songs, he's great.  He's not Erik, but he does an excellent job.  However, on multiple songs, Kenny tries for vocal histrionics that sound strained and just don't work.  Like on "Tainted Blood", for example.   Bottom line for me is that is a very good H.E.A.T album.  It's not "H.E.A.T II" or "Tearing Down the Walls" or "Live in London" but it's better than the first two albums or "Into the Great Unknown". 8/10.
    • After a couple listens, I'm not impressed.  The songs kind of all run together and sound the same.  Nothing terrible, just blah.
    • Yeah, mixed feelings is the right phrase here.  This album isn't bad but it's bland and forgettable.  The two Kent Hilli songs are probably my favorites but they sound very similar to other stuff he's done.   There's just nothing here that stands out.
    • Here's 4 Killer tracks from their pretty great new album released last month. These guys are always quality. They deserve more recognition.
