Mr.Big

Mr. Big is stuck in a time warp...this song sounds like it could've come off any of their classic albums from the 80's-early 90's. It's not gonna win over any new fans, but if you dig the band, this is really good stuff.

I dig that. Hopefully they can finally make a consistently good disc. I'm interested in this.

 

I agree, every release had some great songs but no good flow or momentum and the fillers weighed out the great songs. The "best of" package is all I have from them and it's a great one, just missing "Had Enough" from the debut.

 

The intro to the new song brought me back to the first time I heard Green-Tinted Sixties Mind, fuck I love that song.

I also think their albums have always been a bit hit & miss, but this is awesome - love the vocals...

Agree with the "Green Tinted Sixties Mind" comparison.

Didn't know they were back together recording so now I do. This definitely sounds promising. They seem to be one of those very few comeback bands sticking to their guns rather than trying to be something they aren't. Something I have nothing but the greatest respect for. If you ever want to succeed again thou should come as you are, therefore thou shall come the hardest.

yeah I listened to the sample and it sounds great......sounds exactly like the debut actually.....what happened to those 20 years!

 

No kidding, every time a song brings me back to the good old days I ask that same question...where did the time go?

so are they doing a comeback album!?

 

I'm thinking I read somewhere that they're releasing (another) greatest hits album with 2-3 new tunes thrown in.

 

pff.. bored.

theyve already done that! a few times...

 

Yeah, they've already done it...but it was a quick way to get something new (even if only 2 actual new songs) to the Japanese market pre-tour...I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a new album afterwards...and I also hope that they expand on thier sound and DO NOT repeat anything...

I think Hey Man is my fave...

Freak. ;)

 

'Take cover' is amazing, though. 'The chain' and 'Going where the wind blows' are pretty sweet too. But the rest - :puke:

    • His music videos are always good: either very silly, or very sexy. So I've got this queued up on the PC. Looking forward to it. 
    • New single "The Animal" dropped today, not bad at all:    
    • I dig the new tune!  Honestly, might be my favorite yet from these guys. I like that this kind of gets away from the  Bon Jovi Country vibe they sometimes had on the debut.  For me, this has a fresh, big sound to it.   Will have the new one on my radar.
    • 3rd single... Love It   
    • New video for 'Dance'.    
    • Vandenberg - Sin Chicago - The Chicago Story (2 CD) Megadeth - So Far, So Good, So What? (Expanded) The Allman Betts Band - Down to the River Mike Oldfield - Five Miles Out (Remaster) Buckingham & McVie - S/T Michael Hutchence - S/T Roxy Music - Stranded (Remaster) Echo & the Bunnymen - Reverberation  Echo & the Bunnymen - Evergreen (Expanded)
    • After releasing two albums with AOR/Melodic Rock band Streets, ”1st” (1983) and ”Crimes In Mind” (1985), lead singer and keyboardist Steve Walsh returned to Kansas, to revive the band along with original members Phil Ehart (drums) and Rich Williams (Guitar). Furthermore, the lineup was completed by the addition of bassist Billy Greer (from Streets) and young, promising, former Dixie Dregs guitar man Steve Morse, who also contributed with composing skills and backing vocals. Eventually, the group’s ”Power” album was released in November of 1986, rather much to the vintage Kansas and Prog Rock purists dismissal, as I recall it. The heavier sound/direction and absence of violinist Robby Steinhardt, songwriter/keyboardist/guitarist Kerry Livgren and bassist Dave Hope were all contributing factors to the disapproval, it seems. However, mentioned ”Power” should perhaps instead be judged on its own merits, as it is what it is. Put out in a time when commercial Melodic Hardrock was very much in fashion, with FM rock radio and MTV as ever the important ingredients of daily life. In the end, the album actually landed at a respectable No. 35 on the Billboard chart, while the single/ballad ”All I Wanted” eventually rose to an even more impressive No. 19.

    • They have a real knack for writing (and producing!) songs that could be featured in '80s coming of age films and I mean that in the most complimentary way possible. Really putting the retro in retrowave
