You can check out a few samples at MetalHeaven......I haven't heard them yet but I'll be listening as soon as I get away from work.

I don't think it was that special. I like the more melodic touch of the Cop to Con album.

I heard some samples on their MySpace page a couple weeks ago and thought they were great. Lyrically a bit on the simplistic "party-rock" side, but with big choruses and gobs of backing vox. Definitely a must-buy, and miles better than "Cop to Con."

Awesome news. Was not expecting this. Can't wait to hear it.

 

Love this band. All their discs are great except the horrible 'Enemy Lines'.

Glad they are back, why the hell it took them so long to get back on track I don't know.

This samples rock. I agree with Geoff, great music from this band, Enemy lines was boring soft.

I prefer them when they deliver party rock a la Warrant like "ridin'high" than aor like "cop to con".

Lucky enough to have spun this one. Verdict is - I like it. It's not going to top anyone's charts, but it might be amongst the top half of most people who hear it. This is just a good solid slab of hard rock.

 

Sounds like traditional Bai Bang (last couple of CDs - the ballsier hard rock) mixed with Sha-Boom's 'The Race is On'. They get a little melodic/commercial on a few tracks, and they are the stronger songs - love those ones - but it's mostly just solid hard rock. I can't see anyone being too unhappy with this one at all. Can't wait to spin it some more.

Have been spinning this one a lot lately. I got it a while back and had one listen and thouhgt it was good, but not great. Pulled it out again about 2 weeks ago and have had it playing almost non-stop.

 

This has definitely moved into my top 2-3 releases of 2009. It's quite a bit more melodic than what I usually listen to, but there are some brilliant party anthems on this one. Sorta sounds like a mix of WigWam and mid-era Def Leppard.

 

At this stage I'd most likely put it above both Johnny Lima and Chris Laney's 2009 releases... which have a comparable sound.

I'm still exactly where I was at when I first played it. Good solid disc that's easy to play and enjoy all the way through. Very good effort. I still say it's Sha-Boom mixed with faint Wig Wam (not quite as hook-filled as Wig Wam).

Probably every Scandi rock album ever recorded. I've never really heard you talk about any of the classics so I'm probably pretty serious.

 

When it comes to Bai Bang, 'Cop to con' is their finest hour, but all their albums are great except the terrifyingly bad debut, 'Enemy Lines'.

    • Fuck me, he is off on one again: https://rockcelebrities.net/michael-sweet-stryper-is-the-most-hated-band-of-all-time/ Just a few comments that make me cringe: “We may very well be the most ‘hated’ band of all time but we’ve persevered and we’re still here. We are The Yellow & Black Attack. We are Stryper.” Now I am sure there are bigger bands out there who have more haters than Stryper ever had. Whether this is for right or wrong reasons, Nickleback, U2 and Coldplay spring to mind as bands that have got more hate than Stryper over the years, and they mostly ignore it because they choose to acknowledge the millions who do love them rather than cry about those that hate them. “When I listen to Stryper (as an outsider and as unbiased as I possibly can be) I can hear some pretty cool stuff going on. And at the risk of sounding egotistical, I think Oz and I are one of the better guitar duos to have cranked those Mesas up and harmonize in the studio and on stage. I don’t know, maybe I’m just dreaming and we do suck. Oh well, if this is what ‘sucking’ looks and sounds like, I’ll take it.” How can you ever listen to your own music as an unbiased outsider? The guy is blatantly so thin skinned that he just cannot accept some people just do not like his music, or do not like overly preachy christian music. I have said before on here, I really like Stryper and some of Michaels projects outside of the band, but I have had serious burn out on anything he releases just because he releases way too fucking much. And his attitude has seriously turned me off of supporting him. I have not bought the last few Stryper albums. There are a couple of solo albums I am missing. Didn't buy the last Sweet & Lynch. And I only bought the first Sunbomb when it was mega cheap recently. The quality is hit or miss, which I think is down to him going for quantity over quality.  
    • Yeah will look forward to this also   £16 shipping!! I'll wait for a UK seller to stock  
    • Another band that really is not the band it is pretending to be
    • There seems to be no other takers, so here's the solution highlighted.     
    • Dodges Vs Diamondbacks. With this organist playing while car burns.  
    • I quite like this album. Best songs for me are Straight Up Jack, Nobody Gets Out Alive and Southside of Hell.  Score: 4 out of 6. 
    • New song 'Ghost In Me'.    
    • This cd is listed twice as Heard It on the Radio - Volume 1 and Heard It on the Radio Volume 1 and with two different covers 
    • Seems like it would be right up your alley. I'm enjoying the album immensely. French group.
