Hey bro, or anybody, that likes the kind of music, have you heard anything off that latest AOR cd??? I think it's called return to l.a. or journey to l.a. or something like that, I just heard my step dad talking about it, and how it's got the entire crew plus some new musicians, so I thought Id ask you first?

Jez has already commented on this release over at the HH main site and I couldn't agree more with him. A very good disc !!!

 

Journey to L.A.

Yep - I stick by my comments on the main site. It is pretty damn good in spots, although a liking of Frederic's previous AOR albums and Tommy Denanders stuff is a big advantage. I mentioned the huge Tommy D guitar solo in my little review which is on 'Desperate Dreams' not 'Never Surrender' - both great tracks though.

Yep, gotta agree with Tim. Definitely an aquired taste (and not one I will ever aquire).

 

Honestly Cody, with the glimpses I get of your musical taste I would be floored if you were into this at all.

    • Yeah... pretty much.  Once ADV got his grubby little mitts on it. 
    • I had this preordered...but according to Amazon its out not until 21st Oct ...I know that wrong...its out tomorrow....hopefully it ticks my boxes after reading what tt42572 wrote.
    • Heard this and have to say this is probably my most disappointing album of the year. Granted, I was jacked up for this one and had high expectations.  I loved Carnival Days, loved their Vibration EP and dug the singles they had come out with (Broken into Pieces, Fake Perfection, Scream and Disconnect from the Matrix).   It almost pains me to say that this album though is just doing very little for me.  First of all, Broken into Pieces and Fake Perfection weren't even included on the album and I feel like that was a mistake.  Scream and Matrix are on it and those 2 are probably my top 2 songs on it. As for the rest, not much overly grabbed me on my first listen.  There are a couple tunes that sound okay and might grow on me some but I found myself mostly just scratching my head and skipping through tunes. Overall just not finding it nearly as catchy as most of their recent stuff. I'll give it a couple more tries to see if it's maybe a grower but initial impression isn't great.  
    • Is too light=cheesy is is it just not hard enough/enough guitars etc? Best regards, Thomas
    • How did I not think of this one?! Brilliant album and the project just tanked afterwards...
    • I don't. Hate it with a passion. Even that is so 1986. Retire Tesla please. You are an embarrassment now.

The band's new album, Super Fine Sugar, represents a huge leap forward for the hard-hitting quartet. Streetlight Circus showcases the urgent songwriting and soaring vocals of David Shaw, the fiery and passionate guitar work of George Giannoulis, the thunderous drumming of Erik Fehrenbach, and the smooth rhythm guitar work of Alex Rude. What’s more, Streetlight Circus has captured the attention of industry stalwarts who have eagerly participated in the creation of the new album. The songs were mixed and mastered by Grammy-winning producer and engineer Bob St. John. Guest appearances are made by Berton Averre (The Knack), Tony Harnell (TNT), Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow (The Posies), Brian Forsythe (Kix), and Jesper and Jacob Binzer (D-A-D). Streetlight Circus has been invited to rock thousands at festivals such as Rock Fest (Wisconsin), Rocklahoma (Oklahoma), Rock N’ Derby (New York), Wolf Fest (Colorado), and the M3 Rock Festival (Maryland) among many others. The band has managed to comfortably fit on bills featuring bands as heavy as Avatar, Anthrax, and Megadeth and as accessible as The Doobie Brothers, Buckcherry, and Night Ranger. In 2018, Streetlight Circus embarked on a successful headlining tour of the United Kingdom taking them from Wales to Scotland and many British points in between. Supercharged and ready to roll with Super Fine Sugar, Streetlight Circus is prepared to rock stages around the globe. Don’t miss your chance to rock under the band’s big top. It’s a show you won’t want to miss. Watch the video for "Dirty Earth" featuring Tony Harnell at the link below  https://youtu.be/08_IuFTqwTM
