Great songwriting on both with awesome choruses, great keys and brilliant solo's in both :headbanger:

I was looking for a thread to bump this song and this one was open and I was all like wtf more appropriate thread on earth is there for this song than this thread? Probably my favourite song from the last decade.

 

 

 

I havent heard the White Lion song - is that their one good track ;)

 

You serious? 'Pride' and 'Main Attraction' have some absolutely first class tunes from that era. Killer stuff.

I know I have heard them in the past, so must have not left much of an impression.

 

Main Attraction and Pride are both on Spotify so are now residing in my 'to listen' playlist :)

I'm not the biggest White Lion fan either, but i do love that track.

 

Another one of many i haven't included and this would be in contention for my favourite song ever.

 

Hurricane - Livin' over the edge

I have of course heard that White Lion track and yes it must be their best song. Prob a 9/10.

 

My God though the rest of that Main Attraction album is a right average snoozefest. I doubt it would crack 70% as a complete album.

Just an FYI, original version of "Broke Heart" was on their "Fight To Survive" disc, which is actually their first album.

Stop it, buddy! Where did you find my numerous posts about this hymn in other non-Anglophone forums?

 

Add to this the black cover of the cd + the fact that the man knew reaper was just 2 steps outside studio's door... :crying:

 

 

Sometimes I really wished I had metaphysical convictions such as that the man in my signature is watching us...

Mane Attraction is way too patchy with way too many crappy ballads. When you were putting those numbers in your keyboard was pushed a couple of inches too far to the right!

You mean Glen +1?

 

I was looking at some of those numbers (the 7's and 7.25's) tonight and wondering if I may have been a bit generous, but I trust my past self that I got it right, so I'll run with it. I should add that I love the overall sound and production a lot, which influences my thoughts on otherwise average songs, sometimes.

Trust me mate that you are WRONG.

 

Broken Heart isnt even a 10 let alone the rest.

 

Very very patchy for me.

 

And boring in the main part

No doubt at all it's patchy, as per my rating. But there is great stuff on it. I love 'Broken Heart' plenty, and 'You're all I need' would have been my wedding song if it wasn't a touch too sappy... I absolutely love that song - lot of sentimental value. I must admit, I did question last night when I pulled my review up, if 'Its over' is worth 10/10. I thought I preferred 'Love don't come easy!' lol, but like I say, I trust my reviews and if I did it I did it for a reason. I do know 'It's over' is deceptively awesome.

 

There are songs I thought were boring too, which is why I'm a bit puzzled by my 7's, but I trust the process. Maybe I revisit on Monday.

I think one that comes to mind for me over the past handful of years is Living On The Run from H.e.a.t....melodic rock bliss for me.

Yeah that is a great song, in and out of trouble would be my favourite from that album though

Better off Alone

    • Listening to this in a shopping centre with the phone to my ear and it sounds ok. But overall underwhelmed. Bed City were awesome and his vocal we top notch. But I like to think I can disregard that and hear it for what it is. I think it's the Christian stuff that is holding me back. And I dealt with Stryper stuff no problems so I'm trying to figure out why this isn't sitting well I guess times have changed and styper always came off as a bit gimmicky or shticky and kind of fun. It's also 30 years later and I really don't care Bout the Christian messages. They are boring now. Even Stryper aren't as obvious in their lyrics these days. Or maybe it's all just a reminder of the shit Josh did that landed him in jail? Silly to constantly remind people of that. Would prefer just some fun rock music I think.  
    • Nate seems like a legit nice guy too… From his FB page: I just want to thank everyone for such a positive response on the latest announcement! It means the world❤️ I will do my absolute best to honor Cj’s legacy and keep his name alive each show. Hope to see you all soon Best Regards  Nate Peck   And from earlier this year, this lovely pic of him and CJ
    • On Instagram where Stevie Rachelle posted the link to the story it was crazy how many people don't know anything about the bands recent history or read the article. Several people moaning how they are replacing him too quick etc without realising he has been touring with the band since last year when he was covering for a recovering CJ and that Nate and CJ actually became really good friends. CJ would have wanted them to carry on and gave this guy his blessing, essentially.

    • Good news.  Nate seems like a great dude and from what I've seen, he does a nice job.  I think he's the right guy for that gig being he was filling in with CJ's blessing and he has the right tone in his voice to do the songs justice.  Granted, there's no replacing CJ's unique voice but good that they'll still be out there celebrating the music. One thing I wonder is if they'll maybe considering doing some new music with Nate?  I mean, he's a young guy and would probably love to record some new music with them.  Not sure how much demand there would be for it but I like to see them put out a new song at least and just see how it goes.  It would be nice to give Nate something of his own in the setlist too.  I'm not gonna hold my breath though lol.

    • FireHouse officially name Nate Peck as their new full-time frontman and lead vocalist Metal Sludge — News from the FireHouse camp as they announce their new lead vocalist. Fans of FireHouse and our readers here at Metal Sludge are all aware of the unfortunate news of CJ Snare‘s sad passing back in April and now the band have named his replacement. The band had been performing with fill-in vocalist Nate Peck since 2023 when Snare had to take a leave to deal with medical issues and surgery. Now the band are embracing the move forward and have officially named Nate Peck as their new frontman and vocalist. Read the band’s full statement below as was shared on their social media.     Nate Peck and FireHouse paying tribute to CJ Snare   **AMERICAN ROCK BAND FIREHOUSE ANNOUNCES NEW VOCALIST, NATE PECK** With the untimely passing of CJ Snare, American rock band, FireHouse, has officially announced their new lead vocalist, Nate Peck. Peck, 2023 American Idol golden ticket recipient, performed an outstanding audition for Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie. Richie praised Nate’s performance saying, “That was brilliant…The best rock singer EVER that we’ve had. You’ve got it!” Katy Perry looked to the sky and said, “Actually, he’s SO good!” High praises from all 3 judges got him unanimous consent to move onto the next level of the competition. Peck ultimately decided to leave the show to pursue his career in music his own way: playing live music in Nashville’s booming rock scene and guest singing with national artists like Jack Russell’s Great White. Peck was first introduced to Bill Leverty by Jack Russell’s Great White guitarist, Robbie Lochner. Leverty explained, “When I first heard Nate’s vocal range, tone and control, I immediately knew that he’d be the perfect fit, filling in for CJ who was recovering from surgery. I advocated hard to get Nate out to play at New England Rockfest in October of 2023. He learned our songs very quickly and absolutely crushed it at the show. I then sent some video to CJ and he agreed saying, THAT’S the guy!” CJ and Nate immediately became very good friends. According to Peck, “CJ and I would talk regularly, a few times a week. He would give me vocal coaching, advice on touring and life in general. He was definitely a great mentor for me.” Peck has been singing with FireHouse since October of 2023, wowing audiences around the country. “I am honored to be working with these guys and singing these great songs.” FireHouse music will stand the test of time. Catch them on tour performing their hits “Love of a Lifetime”, “When I Look Into Your Eyes”, “Don’t Treat Me Bad”, “All She Wrote”, “Reach for the Sky”, “Shake and Tumble” and many more, bringing the fans the melodic hard rock they’ve loved for decades. https://metalsludge.tv/firehouse-officially-name-nate-peck-as-their-new-full-time-frontman-and-lead-vocalist/
