There's a few threads here with plenty of opinions but my harmless two cents are that it's an excellent disc. Not the slab of perfection that some have made it out to be, and not the by-the-numbers AOR others have made it out to be. Just a great slab of melodic hard rock. Killer solos and mostly killer tunes. Favourite track for me is 'Running from the heartache', but with only three fillers there are plenty more to choose from. :)

Stating the obvious makes you 100% correct in all conversation.

Nope, but a good solid 87% I reckon (? Somewhere around there). Excellent stuff.

You know, LOVE JSS and think he's in the upper echelon of vocalists but this one is not grabbing me at all. I keep trying to like it but.......nothing. Well, I should not say nothing but it's not near what I was looking for and hoping for. The songs are just not there for me.

 

I am not giving up on it however, I will keep spinnin' it and hoping. JSS deserves at least that much.

So have spun this a good few times now, and I love it. Have nothing much more to add than everyone else has mentioned, other than that the quality actually increases towards the back-end of the disc (the last 4 songs are all killer). The best song for me is "If I Fall" - which will obviously get Journey comparisons - but that shouldn't detract from one of the best MHR songs of the year.

 

Only slight complaint is the vocals. Not because I don't love JSS, but because he has clearly been picked due to his marketability rather than suitability for this project. This is basically a Scandi Melodic Rock disc, and the verses (especially) have been written for singers like Vikstrom/Jidhed who have a higher pitch. "Just Go" is the best example of this. A soulful American singer with a lower tone doesn't really work here - apart from on "If I Fall" - and they should've chosen better.

 

Otherwise, virtually flawless stuff IMO.

Backed.......a rare disc where the second half is better than the first half.

 

...and the 2 best songs are saved for last.

 

what do think of those solos as well?? smokin IMO.

I personally don't think the end is any stronger than the rest at all. If anything the few fillers are in the 2nd half of the disc. :) That said, 'If I fall' is the 2nd best song on the CD. But otherwise, 'Running From The Heartache' is my favourite song on the disc, then 'If I fall' and after that it'd be 'I'll Be There', 'One Love', 'Invincible', 'Comes Down Like Rain' in that order.

 

In fact, the only fillers on the disc - 'Damage Is Done', 'Put Your Money Where Your Mouth Is' and 'Just Go' - are all in the 2nd half of the disc. Yeah, sorry guys, completely disagree. If it's a game of two halves the first half crucifies the 2nd half. :)

 

As for Soto, I actually really love his presence on this disc. I think he nails it, and that's from someone who tires of him as easily as the next guy.

I got it today and hope to have time to spin it soon but for now the Dr. Grind isn't leaving my stereo. :headbanger:

I liked the disk, but I still prefer JSS in Talisman over the stuff here. I WOULD rank this above Takara and his other CD's though, it's just not as good as the Talisman stuff. I think it's because the music (bass and guitar) on the Talisman stuff seems more catchy.

I'm about half way through this and I have to admit that this might be the most overrated cd ever.

I'm not sure how this got a 100 over at Melodicrock since IMO it barely should earn a 90. Of course this is just my opinion and I'm sure it will grow on me after a few more spins but so far to these ears it's just AOR by numbers and not anything near as good as what JSS has done with Talisman or even Eyes in the past. I sure hope this does grow on me since I did have high hopes for this one but so far I'm not to impressed(ducks to avoid flying objects).

I'm just hear to speak the truth. :geoffadillos:

 

Seriously though I do hope it grows on me but I think I was just expecting something more after all the hype.

    • Another one I'm sure I've gone on about in the past, but apparently no thread yet.  He doesn't seem to make a lot of music, but when he does it is awesome. Such as this... Paul Bartolome     -    Reflections, Pt.1 1    .    Fractures (feat. Dave Escamilla) 2    .    Anxiety (U Just Don't Get It) 3    .    While We're Still Young 4    .    Burn It Down (feat. David Bartolome) 5    .    Hypocrite   Easily one of the best songs of the year so far-       From the previously very awesome 'Screaming through the radio' EP-  
    • I know I've posted about this hombre several times before, but apparently not in his own thread. This must change as I find him to be so awesome but no one seems to acknowledge his existence. Not just here, but his youtube channel and reach seems to be so small. Crazy for someone who produces bone crunching quality on a madly consistent basis.  Eric Dalton     -    Playing Favorites (2022) 1    .    Calling Card 2    .    Oblivion 3    .    Head in the Clouds 4    .    X My Heart 5    .    Infection 6    .    My Demons 7    .    Solace 8    .    A Part of Me 9    .    Without You 10    .    Deception     Sorry, I know I've posted this before, but his youtube channel features all three of his (excellent) albums in full if interest permits. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCb2I3-4_UvFnWWTcXBBLPYA  
    • Interesting what bands catch on this forum and the ones that don't. To me, this is a pretty good band and I'm a bit surprised, on a forum where bands like Shiraz Lane and Bad City are appreciated, there seems to be no interest in these guys. Good band that does, for whatever reason, remind me of the likes of the aforementioned Bad City.  There's a bit of hit and miss about the debut and it's far from perfect, but a pretty cool band worthy of mention and interest on a forum such as this.  Anyway, this was one of my favourites of the album- For die-hards, I stumbled across this non-album track.  
    • New video for 'I Will Be Stronger' feat. Joel Hoekstra.    
    • Very nice piece of modern rock on offer here. Lot to like on this one.  Fame on Fire     -    Welcome to the Chaos 1    .    Intro 2    .    Welcome to the Chaos (feat. Spencer Charnas of Ice Nine Kills) 3    .    Ketamine 4    .    Cut Throat 5    .    Emo Shit (feat. Kody Lavigne) 6    .    Lost In Doubt 7    .    Robbery 8    .    Signs 9    .    Plastic Heart 10    .    Rotting Away 11    .    Back Then 12    .    Jaded 13    .    Dead or Alive      
    • Welcome, album of the year? Love this project with vigour. I snuck 'Saturday' on the playlist I put on with the kids in the car, lol. Can't wait to hear any of the songs I haven't already heard and showered in love from this. 
    • Did anyone notice these guys released another new album?  As expected, it's pretty weak and more proof of their solid decline.  HOWEVER!  There is actually a good song on it. It's only one, but I kind of clapped and cheered when I heard this. I used to love these guys so much, and still love the albums I always loved from these guys but it's been some barren years. It was good to hear them do what they used to do with great ease.      
    • Couple of okay songs, but otherwise as expected above. No surprises, exactly what you'd expect from these guys in 2022.     
    • Not every song is a hit, but another pretty decent one mini-album. I like some of the gear on this one.  Villain of the Story     -    Divided 1    .    Never Again 2    .    Jester 3    .    Karma 4    .    Under My Skin 5    .    Losing Control 6    .    Wrong 7    .    Don't Go 8    .    Divided    
    • Not sure if folk know, but they got back together and released an EP this year. Anberlin     -    Silverline 1    .    Two Graves 2    .    Nothing Lost 3    .    Body Language 4    .    Asking 5    .    Circles It's not amazing, but I do really like this song from it-
