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...

Now I am actually happy Mr. Big is back!! :headbanger:

 

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.

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:

    • Atlantis is amazing 👏  Was my album of that year 
    • A lot to like on this release but also some stuff just too light for me. 
    • What a honey Gudrun Laos was and what a Killer track this is!    
    • I didn't say I didn't like it. It's a good album, but I guess after years of reading folks praise for it I built it up to be something more than it actually was. 
    • We already know you're a leftist idiot! Known all around these parts!
    • How are you guys letting horrible songs get into your head???
    • I'm surprised you didn't like it. That's a shame. 
    • It's a mystery alright, although how the band could okay this for release is an even bigger mystery. Also find it intresting that all of the reviews I've read have failed to mention the bizarre mixing and mastering of this record, which kinda makes you question their credibility as rock reviewers.   This I don't agree with at all. The thing that makes H.E.A.T the awesome band that they are is that they've never compromised with their sound or felt the urge to follow trends. We all know that they've could have gone the Dynazty route, making hard 'n' heavy records, that would probably have made them an even bigger and more popular band with the masses. Of course that's not what the fans want, and they know that. We want H.E.A.T to sound like H.E.A.T - and I think they've done a damn fine job of that on this record. I don't mind a bit of experimentation, like on Demon Eyes, as long as it's the exception and a temporarily deviation from the trademark sound. As for bangers, I do think there are some here, but they're all ruined to some degree by the poor mixing job. No, they don't reach the awesomeness of let's say "Dangerous Ground" or "Rock Your Body" from the last album, but stuff like "Nationwide", "Not For Sale", "Hold Your Fire" and "Wings Of An Aeroplane" come pretty damn close. Being the AOR fanatic I am, my main criticism with this band is always that I want them to be more AOR, like on the first 2-3 records. If you're looking for a direction, then this record is clearly a distinctive step away from that. They want to be pure melodic hard rock and not AOR, I think it's pretty clear. Truthfully it's been evident from "Tearing Down The Walls" and onward, but Force Majeure makes it even more evident that no change in that direction is very probable.   If there's anything that this album doesn't lack, it's guitars. The guitars are so loud in the mix that Kenny´s vocals are drowning in them. The album is unlistenable with good headphones, you have to play it through speakers or earphones to make it somewhat listenable. Other weird little things about this record: CD is released in Europe as a f*cking digipak for some reason. Who's beind this strange and unnecessary decision, the band or the label? Also, no writing credits. You have to go to Discogs or Spotify to find out who wrote these tunes.
