My copy arrived through the letterbox this morning and songwise, this is a quite stunning early 80's AOR disc. Never thought this would see the light of day on CD, but here it is. Soundwise this is still 'weak', but bearing in mind this wasn't a major label production in the first place, this is as good as it is going to get I think.

Think Franke And The KO's, Dakota and a little .38 Special at their most AOR and you would be on the right lines. :tumbsup:

I think I jumped the gun a bit in my initial excitement of holding this in my hands, quickly flicking through it and not listening to it properly. I have lived with this over the weekend and there is definitley something up with the 'Remastering' on this. No bottom end whatsoever and a truly truly awful 'Boomy' kick drum sound that washes in and out of the mix at every given opportunity. VERY off putting and it really does spoil the whole sound. As I said above, I know this album didn't have a big production job in the first place and is quite weak, but this sounds absolutely lousy and worse than my vinyl copy. Such a wasted opportunity as the songs here really are excellent. I will be interested to hear others comments who get this one - I think a few people are gonna be mega disappointed. Be warned.

Hmmm .......... I haven't got it yet due to my vacation last week, but I will let you know what I think. Doesn't sound too good, though ! (bad pun not intended :()

Well that wasn't good news Jez, thanks for the warning. That's rather impressive how they can make it sound even worse than the original crappy sound...

I will be interested in hearing others opinions of this one when they have bought it (I notice Bernd got this today) as there have been a few interesting comments over at Glorydaze after I made a comment about the remastering of this disc. Basically the boss of the record label says the sound is really good on here and the problem is with my stereo equipment. I beg to differ, it sounds like shite - comments anyone?

Hmm .. Jez. Are you sure it's not your stereo equipment that sounds crappy ?? ;)

 

It obviously doesn't sound like a new production, but I really don't think it sounds that shite. A little dated and dusty maybe, but not shite, imo. Although I am not too fussy.

 

What do others think ?

I've tried this on 3 different systems mate and the better the system, the worse the mix sounds.

 

The intermitent boom on the Kick drum that wanders in and out of the mix and the non existent Bass? George amongst others over at Glorydaze found the same problem. If you heard the original vinyl LP you would see my point. I know this isn't a big budget produced album, but the remastering on this plains sucks. Your hearing is going Old man :D

    • 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...
    • Lyric video for 'Unbreakable'.
