Recommended Posts

what, no one's mentioned the Nelson album IMAGINATOR.... it's pretty cool :)

Has anyone bought the "Before The Rain" demos album off the Nelson website yet, what an incredible set of songs on offer there, why these songs never got released is beyond me coz as an album it's sooo much better than " After The Rain" cd.

 

I don't agree with this. The demos were good but the fact I never kept them says a lot about the quality of them. I sure as hell remember there to be nothing even remotely as good as songs like "Love & Affection" or "After The Rain" in amongst them....

Assume it's songs like "Senorita"/"Love Is All We've Got"/"Avalon"/"Wish" etc etc? They were on my pre-production copy of "After The Rain" (it had 20 songs on it). All are good, but nothing outstanding that didn't make the album IMO.

Is anything else apart from "After the rain" worth looking into?

 

I think 'Life' has been mentioned a few times mate :whistle:

Matty-Boo, you really are a dreg sometimes. There are more posts in this thread that mention 'Life' than there are that don't. And I agree, definitely their most consistent disc. One or two turds, but mostly an album full of excellent songs. As Jez says, 'Imaginator' would be next on the list but I have 'Because they can' and a CDR of 'Silence is broken' too and I wouldn't get rid of either.

Shutup lovers.

 

I dont have much time to read entire threads atm.

I am really looking forward to that live/demo's disc and of course new music is always encouraged.

 

Just for the record, the Before the rain demos disc has been onsale from the Nelson website for a while now.

It has 18 tracks on it, so will be interesting to see how many make it to this one.

 

 

From what I saw, they don't have a single thing for sale on their site at the moment. :(

When I was looking last night for the Like father, like sons CD, I found that and the demos disc to be the only things they have on sale other than photos.

Thanks for this link, does anyone have that demos disc, kinda looks cdr-ish? In the link above their wasn't anything in their store.

 

I must say while I was googling, ebaying and amazining their catalogue, asides from After The Rain and Because They Can, are quite pricey, glad I have most of them already and thanks to the link I can get the Like Father, Like Son release and complete the series.

 

And Matt, After The Rain is just plain amazing!!! I very difficult album to match, but you won't be dissapointed in any of the Nelson catalogue. Kind of in the same token as Enuff Z' Nuff, who keep churning out quality releases year after year, none quite match the debut, but are all pretty damn descent recordings.

Definately give Because They Can a spin, they acoustical guitar most of the tracks, but they still are vefy well written ad are excellent! Plus this one is still available on the cheap, where as Life, Silence, Imaginator are getting up there!$$$$$$

 

Cheers Terry, for a kind response, unlike those other tits.

 

So has Nelson ever done anything remotely heavy?

So tell me some facts, please. How is the sound quality for these demos? Are m/any tracks equal in production to the debut? Is there any artwork, or is it just the CD as per the photo? Overall, it comes to aud$33 or so... it'd have to be excellent for me to fork that out.

If the album they are releasing on Frontiers includes all the demos, maybe its worth waiting.

Until they release a track listing tho, its anyones guess!

 

Plus, who knows, maybe they will give them a lil bit of remastering as well!

Yeah, to be honest the chances of me paying au$33 for an artworkless CDR collection of demos is somewhere between 0 and -1,000,000. :) I think I'll wait.

I didnt look at the postage costs, but I thought the $20 (US) for a CDR with no artwork was a bit much!

Heck, I thought $26 was a bit much for the Poley CD, and thats a silver pressed double disc with full artwork, and included postage and being signed.

 

No way I am paying $20+ for a CDR.

Yeah agreed. If there was artwork I'd consider but no way in hell am I paying for a plain old CDR.

Considering that with a little help from our friends and a quick google search would more than likely locate those 18 songs and you could make your cd.

Because They Can is a decent album and so is Imaginator. Because They Can is very poppy acoustic based AOR and is very good while Imaginator is darker than the first album with decent songs. Nothing beats the first one though; very polished melodic rock.

I must say I'm particularly looking forward to the Live album as I've always wanted to hear them live and plugged rather than the few acoustic performances floating around.

I'm also surprised and pleased that Neil Zaza is touring with them. I had no idea that such a partnership was even possible. I hope the new album is similar to the first.

    • Both were released as remixed cd's last year,the debut as a 2cd.
    • Was gonna take a punt but I already have Miss B Haven & Bombs Away so have choose not to for a few tracks...but nice compilation from a great band.
    • you can choose to use your own lyrics or just describe the premise and it generates them for you - the more detail you put in the closer it will be to what you want.You have 3000 characters of space.  You then describe how the song sounds.  It then creates 2 different songs, but you can carry on creating as many options as you want. You only get 10 songs a day though on the free options and you can't use commercially on the free version - you know like upload to Spotify etc. 
    • So I'm currently on my summer hols which gives me time to catch up on alot of music I have missed or haven't listened to in a while. Anyway yesterday I was listening to Broadside - Hotel Bleu ( great album btw). Now I have Spotify set to play similar artists once the album finishes and Honey Revenge were one of those artists. Liked the song I heard so checked out their debut album Retrovision and it's a cracker. The duo are Devin Papadol- vocals and Devin Lloyd - guitar and together have produced and album full of perfect pop rock. Highly Recommended and well worth a listen.   Full album ...  
    • So, I'll ask again, but what's the go here mate? Are they your lyrics?  Do you type in a specific genre and instrument combination? What about the melody? I should check it out myself when I have time, but I'm very curious. 
    • Nice, they love "Tiger Tiger" in Japan.  
    • VIXEN Announces New Singer ROSA LARICCHIUTA June 21, 2024 VIXEN has recruited Rosa Laricchiuta(TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA, HEADPINS),as the band's new lead singer following the recent departure of Lorraine Lewis. Laricchiuta made her live debut with VIXEN earlier tonight (Friday, June 21) at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California alongside GREAT WHITE, SLAUGHTER and QUIET RIOT.   Laricchiuta is a singer, songwriter, and performer from Montreal, Quebec. After several years cutting her teeth with live shows, she auditioned for the third season (2015) of "La Voix", Quebec's version of the popular TV show "The Voice". Rosa had an instant connection with the legendary francophone rocker Éric Lapointe and chose him as her coach. Rosa showed a solid stage presence, with remarkable intensity and a voice so powerful it sent her straight to the Grand Finale where she shared the stage with DEF LEPPARD, Kelly Clarkson, Jean Leloup and her idol, Melissa Etheridge. She left a lasting impression as she won over millions of viewers who named her the new "it" female rocker of Quebec.   She then released one album in the Quebec market before beginning work on her first English language album in 2016. That album, "Free", was released the following year and at the end of the year, she joined the popular American band TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRAfor their annual mega tour of the United States. Laricchiuta's hard rock project BLACK ROSE MAZE released its self-titled debut album in August 2020 via Frontiers Music Srl. VIXEN has more than a dozen more shows scheduled for the summer and early fall.
    • Huh, how odd. I just checked and it's indeed there. I guess I'm blind.
    • I see them both in my spotify?! Remixes sound good and better than originals to me!
