Man these guys are awesome!! their a new band from Sweden and mand do they have all of the sleaze elements of them. Sounds almost just like the 80s! The singer reminds me a bit of Ray West from Spread Eagle! which is a good thing in my book! Im sure some of you probly heard of them already but for those of you who havnt, check em out here!

Just been listening to this on Spotify and boy is this good.

 

The first 3 tracks are solid sleazy rockers...then this thing takes off -

 

4. All I Want - really nice ballad

5. Alive - killer sleazy melodic hard rocker

6. Staring At The Sun - another excellent hard rocker

7. High Enough - even better ballad (very cool solo)

8. Ready To Go - solid as hell hard rocker (very Crazy Lixx)

9. Wildheart - another very Crazy Lixx sounding rocker. Nice

10. Vampire - Just brilliant. Perfect sleazy rocker. My 2nd fav on the album

11. Blow The Night - solid rocker...great verses, solid chorus

12. Come Out Tonight - Bona Fide killer track. Best song. 10/10.

 

The last 2 tracks are solid rockers.....

 

Excellent album....hardly a surprise after the debut disc, but this is a big step up and is really melodic in the main part.

 

Highly recommended.

Wow, I found this to be quite uninteresting... but then again I'm more of an AOR boy than a sleaze/glam dude.

It's all very well done, but to be honest I've heard this type of stuff so many times that if a new band wants to grab my attention they need to be REALLY good, I mean good in the Crashdïet/Crazy Lixx/Reckless Love class, and these guys just ain't there yet.

My faves are "Ready To Go" (a bit like H.E.A.T) and the solid rocker "Pretty Wild" which is a really nice tune.

 

A Good album, just not amazing.

 

(By the way, the singer reminds me of a singer from another band, I just can't figure out who - Olli Herman?)

This one is a goodie, the first three tracks might not be a convincing start but I began to appreciate it more on the second spin. I agree with the CRAZY LIXX and other Swedish reference, nothing's new on the formula but it works effectively well. Perhaps two weaker tracks here are 'Troubled Water' and 'Pretty Wild', but the rest are above average and 4 tracks for me that's worth of more than 9 are 'Wildheart', 'Vampire', 'Blow The Night', and 'Come Out Tonight'. There are at least 3 ballads here and all of them are high quality. Production is very good, musicianship is also good, and replay value I guess should fall around 8 or 8.5. This one came out as a nice surprise early this year, I don't know how it holds after 5 spins, but for now I guess it's good at around 84% but might fall slightly later on.

You are incorrect: "Troubled Water" and "Pretty Wild" are two of the better tracks ;)

This is a really good disc...if I haven't said it before. :whistle:

 

Indeed! My initial opinion was, "This is good." After a few listens, I realized, "This is damn good." I think that it's one of the best of its breed in the last few years.
