For the record I love it. Track running order doesnt really bother me too much.

 

By the way no-ones really mentioned 'Pull Me Under' yet?? Wicked tune.

 

Defo a top 5 for me.

 

Reb Beach rules this record..........

 

Yeah I suspect it will grow on me big-time, I hardly every like stuff on the first listen....

Are the samples at Frontier a pretty good sampling of what the CD is like?

 

To be honest, my couple of tries at the samples are not making me very excited but the comments in this thread are by and large pretty positive. So I am conflicted.

 

I was going to pick this up if Best Buy or Walmart actually carried it but it appears they will not.

In my thread I mentioned my adoration for all the hard rockers and 'Witness'. That is a great tune, but not the best of the hard rockers, imo. :)

Personally I liked the samples but having the disc and spinning about 5 times already I like even better.

I might be alone but samples never are enough for me to make a good desicion unless they just totally sound like crap that is.

I agree "Pull Me Under" is a great tune and one I overlooked on the first few spins I made but now I do think it's great but then again I think tracks 1-10 are all great.

 

What about "Come a Little Closer" and "Big World Away"? Those two are awesome as well. :headbanger:

Yeah, 'Big world away' is very traditional Winger-sounding. Is that the one with the pre-solo that could have been taken off 'In the heart of the young'? There's one lead up to a solo on this disc that reminds me of 'In the heart of the young'.

 

Any of the first 5 are awesome to me, and 'Feeding frenzy' too is a killer. Great disc.

Yeah backed - great album!

 

My only criticism is that the second from last (actual) song goes on too much and should have been at least 1 min shorter....maybe more...and i find myself just skipping onto the awesome 'Witness'

 

By the way did i mention how awesome 'Witness' is?? Its awesome........got it ;-))

Nice album. It's better than Winger !V by a mile. I like how After All This Time has a solo by John Roth.

 

The track Pull Me Under seems to be co-written by someone with the surname Huff. I presume this is Dann Huff. Am I right.

 

Overall a nice disc. Easier to get into than Pull in my opinion.

Yes that's Dan Huff.

Thanks for responding and allowing my curious mind to rest. :)

I have always wondered why John Roth's creative input is so insignificant. In the booklet he is credited for one song and one solo. And both are among the best! Perhaps he's not eager himself, and willingly accepts the role of a performer only? IMO, he's no worse than Reb Beach as a guitarist and a songwriter or co-writter too, as it becomes apparent. :blink:

I picked this up the other day even though I had originally written it off as just a couple of good songs with too much filler. That opinion was based on the 30 second sound samples I had heard. Well, I'm definitely glad I went ahead and gave Winger and the boys the benefit of the doubt. While "Big World Away" and "Feeding Frenzy" are still my favorite, I've been groovin' to such other good tunes like "Stone Cold Killer", "Supernova", and "Witness" as well. So, while there is still some filler material mixed in as well (is an instrumental really considered a bonus track?), it is good to here Kip singing some catchy hard rock again.

    • I was meaning the promoters who had the fiasco should had a look how run a festival. As for two supports end up playing, and as early week when I talk to drummer of another band not Taste, they still had not been paid. Yes, it was the Deadthings was the backing band for Steve Rachelle.
    • Good band, always enjoy their gear. Need to check if I actually have this one as I possibly missed it. 
    • Yeah, I noticed this at some point through the year but chose not to mention it as I share your sentiments about the "new" track. Definitely not worth tarnishing the album by adding that onto it. Otherwise, it's magnificent. 
    • lol, definitely got the names mixed up there. But that's cool, that there's two original members. When I saw "Tuff" it was Stevie Rachelle and The Deadthings as a back-up band if I recall correctly. There'd been issues with getting his US band out here at the time, which didn't feature any past members of Tuff either way, at the time. 
    • It was Todd Chaisson. George DeSaint left the band with Todd in 1991 after an incident where Jorge was teasing one of the crew about being 'clean' and with a line of coke. Todd came back, Jorge didn't. My ideal Euro line up at the moment would be (following Glamfest with 6 internationals) Kissin' Dynamite The New Roses Bai Bang Dynazty Wig Wam The Poodles Dangerous Curves - as the local act
    • The promoters should not be applauded for delivering what they said, that should be expected. This was Silverback who weren't part of the fiasco regardless. What the promoters should hear is how the sound was very average and that they need to get it right next time. Stevie posted about the shows and asked fro good and bad feedback, so I gave him that. Once I sooked online on a Silverback post that their shows always have too many local acts which reduce the sets of the main acts (which generally are +/- hour - Pop Evil, Corabi does MC94, etc) and they just deleted it rather than hearing an opinion.
    • I have Vain's 'Move on it' as a 1993 release in Japan? Otherwise, put it on the top of my list. Or somewhere near it anyway...
