I'd like to hear these but am curious why the 3rd disc isn't being released officially yet.

If these releases are coming down the pipe I would have to think a proper release of Revolution Day is in the works...Hopefully! :tumbsup:

I have to admit, I've heard all three of these albums and in my totally honest opinion there is not even an EP's worth of keepers on all 3 CDs. Very much just a collection of cutting room floor left-over, imo.

Now I wouldn't go that far. Yes there's some filler(there always is in these type of collections) but there's some cool unreleased stuff in there as well along with the original Tora Tora recordings pre-Suprise Attack. Still I would rather the third disc get officially released.

So has anyone ordered any of these cds? I see FNA Records is selling the trio for $39.97. I'll probably snag the bunch eventually. Really hoping they aren't cdrs. Anyone know for sure?

 

 

I haven't picked up the Tora Tora releases from FNA but I did pick up the 2 St Warren releases (Return to Honest Planet and Rock of Eden) and they were silver pressed....although they were also digi-pack and had no inserts...so rather cheap packaging...

I was actually excited about the Tora Tora stuff when I heard it was going to be released. When that Revolution Day recording hit the internet a while back, I got it and I LOVED it. I was hoping there'd be an official release of it and then this news came about. Being skeptical about releases these days, especially long lost recordings, I aquired these to preview and I'm glad I saved the money because the quality is that of a worn tape. Even the Revolution Day sounded better to me. There's some good songs, but I'd go as far as to say that 60-70% are forgetable. I see why they never made the cut to begin with.

wow.. some ruthlessly harsh comments there geoff.

Yeah, I agree it's harsh, and I don't take joy in saying it because I have nothing against this band. I always quite liked their debut and 'Wild America' is not bad either. Neither is a highlight of my CD collection, but they're both cool albums to have. But dude, these 3 CDs are just no good at all. No easy way to get around it. :(

'Wild America' isn't bad? 'Wild America' is awesome, okay not as awesome as the debut but still an exceptional disc IMO. :party421:

    • Edvard Munch's favourite band.
    • Debut album 'Portraits' out May 31.   From Art Of Melody Music / Burning Minds Music Group:   The band was founded a decade ago under the name ”Alex Mari & The Lovers”, with the aim of writing original material. Meanwhile, in order to create good chemistry between the members, the group began playing together on several live shows, performing cover songs of legendary international artists just like Queen, Toto, Police and AC/DC.   After few line-up changes, the band was finalized with three members: Alex Mari  (Michele Luppi Band, Barock Project, Ophiura, plus guest appearances as studio backing vocalist with Rhapsody of Fire) on vocals, Gianluca Pisana on drums and backing vocals, and Sebastiano Barbirato on guitar and backing vocals. For their debut album, they established their new identity with the name, Night Pleasure Hotel.   The first studio chapter of this very promising trio offers a perfect slice of classic American AOR, reminiscent of Survivor (Bickler era), Foreigner, Prism and Toto. The album features contributions from talented special guest stars –  Michele Luppi (Whitesnake), Luca Zabbini (Barock Project, PFM), Paolo Caridi (Ellefson-Soto, Reb Beach, Geoff Tate, Krell), Gianluca Tagliavini (PFM), Roberto Galli (Michele Luppi’s Heaven, Danger Zone, Wheels Of Fire) and Iarin Munari (Red Canzian, Roberto Vecchioni, Paolo Vallesi).   Night Pleasure Hotel are sure to become one of the best newcomers of the current melodic rock scene, thanks to their infectious sound, mixed and mastered by Roberto Priori (Danger Zone, Wheels Of Fire, Raintimes, StreetLore).   The release of ”Portraits” is scheduled for May 31, 2024 via Art Of Melody Music / Burning Minds Music Group. The CD booklet features introductory liner notes written by Samuele Mannini (Melodicrock.it), while cover art and CD graphics have been developed by Aeglos Art (Wheels Of Fire, Platens, StreetLore, Raintimes, Room Experience, Nightblaze).    The first single of the album, ”Just This Once”, will be launched with an official video on March 28, 2024.   Tracklist:   01. Niko 02. Just This Once 03. We Say Goodbye 04. Walking Through The Horizon 05. You And I 06. Sweet Melodies Of Rain 07. Shivers 08. What I Feel 09. Julia  10. Suddenly 11. For You 12. Quella Sera (Bonus Track)   Night Pleasure Hotel is:   Alex Mari: Lead Vocals, Backing Vocals, Bass, Guitar, Keyboards Sebastiano Barbirato: Guitar, Bass, Backing vocals Gianluca Pisana: Drums, Piano, Backing Vocals
    • Queen Shrike = Queensryche 👍
    • and the new Gunship cd maybe not so much AOR but damn good stuff
    • I've enjoyed pretty much all of their output thus far..inc this  
    • First I've heard of these guys.  A bit of a Danny Wilde vibe on vocals for me.  I like it.
    • New song 'Give The Night Away'.    
    • I can't remember the ins and outs of it, but last year he put up a tweet about how anyone who does cover songs is unoriginal and have no talent, and he would rather listen to the original. I have no issue with the second part of his statement as that is all down to personal taste, but for him to call out bands as unoriginal and lacking talent when bands he listens to have done covers is quite laughable. Every time he posts shit like that I reply and he always ignores me as he knows he is chatting shit. He does it with wrestling as well. Called someone out for instulting a woman wrestler, and saying it's unacceptable to insult wrestlers like that. Pointed out he always calls Brock Lesnar a gorilla and he he should practice what he preaches .. ignored again As I say, always has to pretend he knows everything, but always gets caught out.
