This sort of stuff isn't usually my thing, but I really like this one. "So Yeah" is a shocking track, totally out-of-place on an otherwise killer second half, but the rest is really good. Production is thin but pretty clear, the harmonies are great, and "Beautiful Bomb" is a monster track - and the highlight IMO. They remind me of Tigertailz with a few more keys. Is very strange listening to this type of stuff in 2010, as I don't do so often, and it sounds proper cheesy, but this is really good - better than the last WIG WAM IMO. Though the TREAT album is better than this...

 

My 3 year old daughter likes 'Beautiful Bomb'.....says it all really. Sounds like it should be on cbeebees

 

And the video is horrific...

How so? The bomb segments are a little dull to be sure. Not sure why it takes so long to get the woman into a bikini.

Ok, so a few weeks ago someone linked me to the One more time video, and I was impressed.

Downloaded the album straight away, and its been on constant rotation on my MP3 player and PC. (I've since been able to afford a physical copy of the CD).

 

This album has hooked me like the Steel Panther one did last year.

While the new Ratt album was great, and the new Treat one was a bit disapointing, this surprise release has totally blown me away.

I cannot fault a single song on the album.

 

And just to top it off, I booked a ticket last night, to go see them at the Barfly in Camden on the 24th.

I'm quite impressed by these guys! If I could go to my doctor and use a song to tell him, "This is how I want to feel," I would probably use "Beautiful Bomb!" Lots of other great cuts on this disc as well. I am definitely in the category of people who LOVE "Back To Paradise." I hear the comparison to KISS' "I Was Made For Lovin' You" without a doubt, and that's a great thing to me!

i must say, this one seems to be losing it's gloss the more i listen to it.

To be honest I thought this might be the case for me too... but it's not at all. If anything it's establishing itself as a genuinely great disc the more I spin it... not just some instant slice of joy to be overlooked in time. I love it.

In my opinion, every track is killer, and blows away pretty much everything else this year so far.

Even the Ratt one, which is a storming album.

I still prefer the likes of Treat, Crazy Lixx, Crashdiet, HEAT and possibly Pretty Maids, but that's some unfairly strong competition. But it's got a firm grip on that 5/6 spot for me at the moment.

I still haven't heard this one but it's gotta be good to be mentioned with those discs you mention there. I hold the CD, CL and PM in high regard right now. The Treat is very good to but I can take or leave the HEAT but there just not my thing I guess.

I'm still really liking the majority of the Reckless Love disc, so I am guessing it will have a high placing with me come years end, although there are soo many good discs so far this year and a lot of competition i.e - H.e.a.t, Scorpions, Treat, Y&T, Molly Hatchet, Crashdiet, FM to mention but a few.

I suppose it depends on what is classified as strong competition.

I thought the Treat album was decidedly average, and what I have heard from those other bands hasnt exactly blown me away. Guess its all a matter of personal choice though.

All I know is I hadnt even heard of these guys til a month or so ago, and after hearing one track, I was hooked enough to get the album straight away, and it hasnt stopped being played since.

Treat and Reckless love are best album of 2010 till now, IMO.

Followed from Wig wam and Crash diet.

I have not yet listen to Y&T and Pretty Maids, I've ordered them 4 days ago from Frontiers.

Not sure if this song has been released outside Europe as I believe it was available as a downloadable b-side only.

They actually play this one live at shows.

I also like this band live. They played Download and were pretty damn awesome IMO, both acoustically (where they got a stackful of fans watching) and with their plugged set...

I got lucky today.

The London Borderline gig went on sale last week, and sold out immediately, long before I got paid and could buy a ticket.

On the off chance today, I checked out Ticketweb and found out its been moved to the Relentless Garage in Islington, and tickets are back on sale.

Has anyone heard their song "Get Electric"? It is on the Badass single. At first I found the lyrics a little cheesy but it gets pretty catchy after a few spins.

    • Out February 26 on AFM Records. It’s been more than two years now since Bonfire, following the outstanding debut of their current vocalist Alexx Stahl on Byte The Bullet (2017), were unanimously celebrated for their successor album Temple Of Lies (2018). Two years which saw the band rock countless stages at home and abroad before going on to set the bar even higher with their latest offering: Fistful Of Fire is definitely one of the toughest Bonfire albums ever and has been released in March 2020. As everybody knows today, this album release was ill-fated by that worldwide Covid-19 pandemic – store had closed short after the release and the tour had to be postponed and even cancelled in the end. It’s a fact, that the band did not play one single show with their new album to that very day.However the band from Ingolstadt is trying to looking forward. New plans arouse for an upcoming project. It was summer 2020 when the band again hit the “Flatliners Recording Studios” to start recording the new longplayer “Roots”. It’s a magnificent "almost unplugged"-album with 24 tracks recorded completely over again and interpreted in new ways. It includes very young ballads like “When An Old Man Cries” and old evergreens like “You Make Me Feel”, contains old rock hits like “Ready 4 Reaction” and "American Nights" but also arising rock hymns like “The Devil Made Me Do It”, so every fan of this band will find something on this one. On top of that in features 5 brandnew songs that have been created while acrowdfunding campaign as remittance works for fans.With this release and the new campaign on StartNext the band tries to get some money into their empty band accounts and offers quite some musical delicacy with regards to the content. Besides various merch items, living-room concerts, VIP Tickets for their streaming release show and special rarities like original master tapes or guitar amps, the new album “Roots” can be ordered here: https://www.startnext.com/bonfire-back-to-the-rootsLet’s hope for better times, in which live-concerts can take place again and let us support and celebrate one of Germany’s biggest rock bands in alternate ways until that day.   1.  Starin' Eyes 2. American Nights 3. Let Me Be Your Water 4. Price of Lovin' You 5. Comin' Home 6. Ready 4 Reaction 7. Give It a Try 8. Sleeping All Alone 9. Who'S Foolin' Who 10. Why Is It Never Enough 11. Fantasy 12. When An Old Man Cries 13. Love Don'T Lie 14. Lonely Nights 15. Under Blue Skies 16. You Make Me Feel 17. No More 18. The Devil Made Me Do It 19. Without You 20. Your Love Is Heaven to Me 21. Piece of My Heart 22. Youngbloods 23. Our Hearts Don'T Feel the Same 24. Wolfmen
    • Lillian Axe was at the time my favourite band. Poetic Justice might be the best produced and greatest guitar sound on any album I’ve ever heard. Love & War was a bargain bin purchase in 1990...based only on the cover. Turned out to be one of the greatest releases ever...like Hysteria this album has so many epic classic tracks, this album deserved to be a massive hit. The debut was solid, sounded like a Ratt album especially with Robyn Crosby’s involvement. Psycho...was the bands last great release...a change in sound to what we see today from them started on this release. Like Poetic Justice such a well produced and beautifully sounding album...which includes two of the best ballads ever.    In my eyes and to my ears, only Metallica with Lightning, Masters and Justice has another band released such a massive trifecta of releases like Lillian Axe did with Love & War, Poetic Justice and Psycho...
