It finally clicked what that 'Sometimes' song sounds like. It reminds me of 'Rainy Monday' off the Skin Tag album. Average disc, but simply stunning song which made it on my 'Best of' (all discs) compilations.

Wow, what happened here? Just listening to their s/t debut now... it sucks. :(

 

'Sometimes' sounds a million dollars and 'Staring at your door' is a pretty good ballad, but the rest is terrible. It has kind of jazz elements all through it. Really not good at all. A real shame because they have a killer production job behind them too. Oh wait, another half-okay ballad - 'I found my way.' Borderline, though.

 

Still got 4 songs to go after this one, but I feel safe in delivering the news that this is unfortunately crap. :(

too bad for that, could it be one of the worst releases of 2011 ? :D

One of the worst, maybe, but as long as Hurtsmile exists, it's got the worst CD of 2011 covered well.

 

This Guru CD is just a real shame. As I said, great production, great guitarist... I just don't know what they were thinking for most these songs.

yeah Hurtsmile hurts pretty bad, too bad since i kinda dig Extreme's "Saudades", i remember there are several great tunes there.

 

well, hopefully the hype of 80s revival isn't going to crowd the market with crappy releases for the next few years just for the money, quality is important to survive, especially when everybody's able to listen to the whole album months before its official release :D

    • This one is really good honestly, 10 songs, pretty much all their big hits. Very concise.
    • I think most people know my stance on these two. I love LA Guns and think Tracii is one of the best guitarists to come out of the hair metal scene, and while I like Stryper I have really gone off them due to Michaels compulsion to release new material every second Wednesday. I have not bought the last 2 or 3 Stryper albums, and a bunch of other stuff he is involved in because of this. Hell, didnt even pick the first Sunbomb album up til early this year and only then it was because I got it for £5 instead of the usual £13 to £15 that Frontiers CDs usually cost. That album did not impress me. Musically it was tight but Sweets vocals were pretty "meh", and sounds like they are gonna be even worse on this album. Have to agree to what has already been said, but I can barely even understand what he is singing. Now while I am fine with listening to foreign language songs, if a singers native tongue is English, I wanna be able to understand what he is singing. Fuck me, there are death metal bands out there easier to understand than this. If I didnt know the song title, I would think it was called I'm bating bulls yeah
    • That Sunbomb release was soo bad that I can't believe there's gonna be another one.
    • Computer generated Gene is now God of Thunder 
    • Sorry, but those vocals are not good at all...

    • It’s not a “you” problem; I could barely make out a word while listening to “Unbreakable” last night. A lyric video is definitely necessary when listening to MS these days. Still, even not having a clue what he was singing for the most part, this is better than pretty much everything off the first Shitbomb album. 
    • Enjoying this one, for defs their best release and they wear their influences firmly on their sleeves , mixing bands like Van Halen/Whitesnake/Treat/Pretty Maids/Magnum so whats not to like  
    • I didn't make the connection until a couple of days ago. This is the previous group of Tobias from Nestor.        
    • I miss the days when I could actually understand what Michael Sweet was singing.  Not sure if that's a "me" problem or a "Sweet" problem...
