Just a little curious on this one. From afar I thought 'Dreamin' in a casket' was the better album but having now played both back to back I actually think 'Beg for it' is quite easily the better album.

 

IMO, both discs kick ass and mark a significant (thankfully) change in sound for this band. I love 'Dreamin' in a casket' from beginning to end but I do find that I sit there hanging out for 'Sorry For The Shape I'm In' a lot more than I do anything on 'Beg for it'. With 'Beg for it', I find it a little more consistent and the level of songs is just a little higher. Better hooks, the guitar is a bit more ferocious. I don't know, I just like 'Beg for it' better. :)

I don't wanna hijack this thread but while you are voting and answering what Geoff asks, as a secondary comment I wonder if anyone would maybe offer their opinions of these 2 cd's compared to the self titled 2005 release?

 

I really like the S/T release so if the follow ups are that much better then I want to grab them.

 

If I should just start my own thread let me know...I thought maybe this would fit as long as the thread doesn't get side tracked.

Yeah, as far as I know I'm the only one who doesn't agree with what Lindsay said. I believe 100% of other board members prefer that s/t disc.

 

For me, since their beginning they were just an average modern sleaze band like Backyard Babies that I could take as easy as I could leave. IMO, the s/t was the best of the bunch but just a continuation of where they were already at. For 'Dreamin' in a casket' they came out with an all-new real bad-ass hard rock sound and to me that's when this band came alive. :)

Hmmm, well I have been playing some of the tunes on their website. What they have posted is good. I might check the newer ones out.

    • Try the first 3...s/t , One Step Closer , Dance In The Fire...but they do have a couple of best of's...Decade I & II...as you say the studio albums contain filler but some good quality stuff also.
    • FOREIGNER’s MICK JONES issues statement: “Fans will have become very aware that for some time now, I have not been performing onstage with the band. A number of years ago I was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease. I want everyone to know that I am doing alright, however, l've always liked to be at my best when performing onstage, and sadly at present find that a bit difficult. I'm still very much involved in the background with Foreigner and remain a presence. Parkinson's is a daily struggle; several of my friends are also dealing with the disease. The important thing is to persevere with the loving support of my family, and remind myself of the wonderful career l've had in music. I thank all the fans who have supported Foreigner throughout the years and continue to attend our concerts. Please know I appreciate your support; it always means so very much to me, especially so at this point in my life.”
    • Does anyone have some recommendations on where to start with this band? It seems like every album I try listening to has some good songs but also a lot of filler...
    • Good news, I really like Confess :-)
    • Great band and they've been on fire since they got this vocalist but that's not a great choice for a single IMO. It just kind of meanders along.
    • Good call. He's a bloody good keyboard maestro let's be fair.
    • Vinyl only bonus tracks pisses me off. Why? A cd could fit the bonus tracks far easier. Jerks. I'm annoyed about that.
    • New song 'Defiance' from the album of the same name (out April 19th). Tracklisting: 1. From The Start 2. Defiance 3. Feelin' Lucky 4. I Surrender 5. Forever In My Heart 6. Never Can Say Goodbye 7. One Heart 8. Give It Up 9. Nightswim 10. Standing Tall 11. Let’s See    
    • John says he is still in Confess as well.  This was posted on the Confess FB page about an hour ago: TO CLARIFY SOME STUFF!   Yes, i've joined forces with Crashdiet, which feels very exciting indeed. With that being said, I’m still very much a part of confess. Confess is my high school Rock'n roll band that i sang in for the past 15 years and i have no intentions of leaving or changing that. We're currently working on new music and hopefully have something new to show you guys pretty soon.   // John Elliot https://www.facebook.com/confessofsweden?mibextid=JRoKGi
