Tango Down - Damage Control

Anyone else besides Chad and myself have this one yet?

 

If you love Melodic Hard Rock then this is for you.

Every song is a winner especially "Empty Hole", "All Fall Down", "I'm Done Lovin You", "I Can't Wait", "The Light" and "Waiting For You".

 

Of course with this being on Kivel Records the production is top notch as always.

 

New lead vocalist Alex Barbieri really brings something special to the mix with a great voice and after seeing the band at DRF he's a heck of a frontman as well.

 

This is highly recommended for all fans of Hard Rock that has melody. :tumbsup:

I know there's a thread around somewhere started by Kivel but I couldn't find it.

Hopefully going to get this in my ears pretty soon and then you can be sure to hear the comments flow.

All I can go with is what is on their Myspace page.

I'm Done Lovin' You rocks, big chorus

I Can't Wait has a cool funk rocky vibe to it with another good chorus.

All Fall Down...well, any song that is based on the lyrics "Ring Around The Rosie, Pocket Full of Posie" I have to wonder what they were smokin'.

I give it 2 "Winners" and 1 "Loser" so far and a plus on the front album art.

All Fall Down kicked ass live and probably got the crowd the most fired up of all the songs they played :headbanger:

Backed and it don't matter to me that the lyrics are kind of cheesy, it is what is is a fun rocking song that as Rick said gets the crowd going. Plus a chorus that's easy to remember.

 

"I'm Done Loving You" is not only one of the top songs of the year but its' one of my fav songs of the last several years. Everytime I put this disc in my cd player I have to turn it waaaaaay up. This cd is just what the doctor ordered for fans of feel good Hard Rock with tons of melody that's perfect for Summer.

I've only gotten through it one time. I need to play it a few more times before I give my two cents.

Me too. Love the cover of Change though. That one jumps out immediately.

the only songs which do anything for me are 'Im Done Lovin You', & 'I Wanna..' (& that's not that great) :-((

 

Just doesnt grab me....a bit lifeless to these ears.

Is it me or does the song sound ALOT heavier on the cd than it did live? I thought it was a bit lighter live. Still like the song but the cheesiest of lyrics for sure. But if its a good groove, who cares? This song has that.

I agree, it does sound heavier on the album.

 

Also, the guitar player really borrows from Zakk Wylde in his playing style, doesn't he? :headbanger:

Backed that tune is heavier and I love it and yeah there is some Zakk style guitars going on.

Now the guitarist Riff Miller was in Adriangale I believe.

Who's sweet ass vintage Z28 Camaro did you use for the cover? Or is that all computer generated?

 

Funny, I was going to comment on the cover and of course on a need to know about the redhead!:)

 

I see we have our priorities straight, who cares if the music is any good.

Yep. Plus Rif wrote Fallen Angels on the Talon cd! Great tune and a great guy! He was a George Lynch fan but he said he's more of a Zakk style player now.

What car? There's a sexy blonde and a sexy redhead... can't see a car, though.

 

Seriously very good disc. Looking forward to some more spins but this sounds delightful for fans of straight up 80's commercial hard rock. Might rate pretty high on my list at the end of the year, I dare say.

Thank you Geoff. Finally someone making some sense. Thanks cousin. :headbanger:

 

There is pics of the girl catching the guy with another girl in the car and there's another inside the sleeve of her walking away after setting the car on fire.

A car like that let's me get chicks that look like that. Instead I have to settle for the car on the FarCry cover.

    • The fundamental difference is that the mainstream media is now portraying the Chinese COVID protestors as glorious freedom fighters standing up for their inalienable human rights, where protesters in the U.S. and Canada were portrayed as terrorists, insurrectionists, and right-wing nazis by the very same mainstream media. Fuckers. I guess the current administration(s) have exhausted the money pit being diverted to Ukraine with respect to public approval, so now time to ratchet up somewhere else to send gobs of taxpayer money so that billions can be funneled back to the DNC via crypto...
    • Agree! There was a time back 5 or 6 years ago when I'd get into these project type things....Defiants, Nordic Union, etc.  And I'm sure I'll still enjoy new Defiants music when it drops. But I'm definitely saturated on these things and I'm basically to the point where I'm paying very little attention to them.  I'd rather invest my time into "real" bands that I might actually get the chance to see live someday. Like you say, I'll still sometimes check out these things and maybe I toss a song into my playlist here or there.  But odds I actually purchase an album from one of these new projects is very low.  
    • This seems like something that would be massively exciting maybe five or six years ago but now, not so much. I'm just so bored with the Frontiers factory churning out studio project after studio project with the same songwriters, the same production, and random hodgepodges of vocalists...year after year after year. I'm just not interested in this stuff anymore, I'll listen but the odds that I'll come back to it (let alone buy the album) are low. Those songs are mediocre. They're not ADV's worst but they are not his best either. IMO Robbie steals the show in both of them. Why is ADV still doing backing vocals for a project created specifically for THREE vocalists?  P.S. that band name SUCKS lol
    • New single 'April Rain' from the album 'Naked Soul'. And ADV ruining everything... From Frontiers: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce T3nors, a very special new AOR project. Two of America’s greatest AOR singers, Robbie LaBlanc and Toby Hitchock join forces with one of Sweden’s finest AOR singers, Kent Hilli to form the vocali trio of T3nors. These absolutely outstanding vocalists have come together on one glorious melodic rock album, "Naked Soul", which will be released on February 10, 2023.  The story behind this record actually dates back quite a few years as Frontiers has been wanting to do a “three tenors” type of record for quite some time. Given the extremely high level of AOR vocal talent that the label has worked with in the past and continues to work with today, the idea never really lost steam. The issue was always finding the right pairing of three singers and the timing for the individual singers to have holes in their schedule to record. With the onset of the global pandemic in 2020, everyone's availability, for better or for worse, became more flexible and the idea started to become reality.  Pairing Robbie, Toby, and Kent together seemed an ideal team up and all three were enthusiastic about the idea when approached to participate. The rest, as they say, is history. Kent Hilli is the newest of the three singers on the scene, but has quickly made an impact with the albums he has released with his main band Perfect Plan, as well as being the new frontman for GIANT, solo material, and guest appearances with Restless Spirits, the melodic rock project from Lords Of Black guitarist Tony Hernando.  Toby Hitchcock is an American singer known for his solo albums as well as his work with the esteemed melodic rock genius Jim Peterik in Pride Of Lions. Robbie LaBlanc is an American singer, guitarist, and songwriter known for his work with Blanc Faces, Find Me, a project with The Murder Of My Sweet drummer/producer Daniel Flores, East Temple Avenue, and more.  If you are a lover of all things AOR, then T3nors' debut album, "Naked Soul" is a can't miss release!   Tracklisting:1.

    • Very sad news. She had a lovely voice. I absolutely love both 'Rumours' and 'Tango In The Night'...both part of my musical journey. 
    • Superb album...one of the best pure Westcoast releases this year. Love the Chaka Khan cover of 'Ain't Nobody' as well. Great stuff
    • Not perfect by a long way, but the album a hell of a lot better than some in the other stuff Frontiers put out on a regular basis
    • Very nice...Move out of the way ADV, Dennis is back .....very solid band with The Greatest Wonder especially being absolutely fabulous. Looking forward to this one a lot
    • I I know I'm way behind the 8 ball here as I had never paid attention to these guys either but just clicked on the Daylight video myself and dug it.  Found my way to this thread and digging some of these other tunes too.  I think the different kind of sound is appealing to me a bit at the moment.  It's almost like if Axel Rose were fronting Tora Tora or something.   Gonna have to give the album a listen to see if it sticks but initially Daylight, Wall Said To Call and Feel Alright are sounding interesting to me from just watching the videos above.  Will have to check the album out. 
    • I used to love this band so much on their first 3 albums. Who could have guessed it would end up with this complete shit show. Bands should NOT air their dirty laundry in public
