I dunno, something about the lead singer's voice was bugging me.

Damn some of these new bands are starting to look cool again. I agree with Chris regarding the dude's voice - not the greatest I've heard by any stretch - but once again, this is some pretty awesome stuff. Musically very nice, awesome production, great backing/harmony vocals and two very cool songs. I really dig this too. This one and those Diamond Lane guys are definite musts.

NEH Records now has these guys available for sale with 30 second sound clips for each song. I didn't hear quite enough to make me rush out and pick it up yet, but "Monkey Wants Monkey Needs" and "The Devil's Shake" were sounding pretty darn cool.

I gave the samples a once through and although I wanted to like it, the songs really didn't do much for me.

 

Here's a link with samples...

Seriously good CD here. I'm surprised by my earlier comments on the dude's voice as I actually quite like it. I had this on yesterday and really enjoyed it. Great disc, and needs to be sitting in my top 10 this year, I dare say.

Very very average imo, after what I had heard about it in various places.

 

I tend to agree with Jez.

I just had this arrive the other day and wow....great stuff!

 

From a few of the members that I *think* I know some of their tastes I would think Geoff and Rick (already commented above) and Wes would like this as well as many others.

 

Big guitars and vocals that remind me of Mr. Big with some Baton Rouge and a harder edge that I have not quite figured out yet. Really good stuff.

 

This is one of those cd's I would recommend to anyone on here who really enjoys the bands I mentioned above.

 

Granted I am behind on my 2009 release purchasing (less than 10 I think) this one would make my top 5.

Same question, because up above you said 'Sounds great".

 

I have been spinning this disc non stop for a few days and there really isnt a bad song on it. I am not a ballad guy but even the ballad is pretty good. It does have a bit more attitude and a harder edge than my post yesterday led to believe...more so than Mr. Big and Baton Rouge (but I still here them in there). I need to spin it some more to figure out who to compare the harder sound to.

Any other opinions on this one? Still no comments on the main HH site, which seems odd. The tracks on Myspace sound pretty good, although my first impression of the ballad 'Far Away' is that it's pretty poor. Good review in PowerPlay magazine.

If you like hard rock and sleaze same as Dirty Penny, a bit of Crazy Lixx, get it, you won't be disappointed. Of course you asked for OTHER opinions and I've made mine known on this disc plenty so, see if someone else chimes in...

    • 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'.

    • 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
