Los Angeles - 'Neverland'

Another new album due on 4th of December... and I have to say this one is impressive! Contrary to the debut, most these songs are written by Luppi and Fabrizio Grossi this time round. And the band is a lot better for it. I was one of the few who did enjoy the debut, but this one is MUCH better.

 

I thought this Luppi fella had dropped the ball with that awful Killing Touch CD this year, but he more than makes up for it here. His vocals are still only okay at best and heavily accented, but the songs are excellent. A real surprise for me, to be honest.

 

Track List

 

01. Neverland

02. Nothing to Hide

03. City of Angels

04. Promises

05. Wait For You

06. Nowhere To Run

07. Tonight Tonight

08. Higher Love

I hope the new Los Angeles disc is a lot better than the first one, which was patchy at best. Grossi is involved again, so I don't hold out much hope, as I haven't heard one single decent, consistent disc that he has touched as of yet. We shall see.

Yeah I don't know mate, I was pretty impressed. Songs seemed consistently good but this also sounded really good too. And I usually agree his projects sound a little average. Admittedly, I've only spun it once so far but for something I wasn't expecting too much from, it definitely exceeded expectations.

Ive only just got the debut. Solid album, which you only buy for Luppi and ignore the Denander aor project whore guy. It still didnt compete with the Khymeras and Place Vendomes etc though...

 

And Geoffy emo... Killing Touch is a great album! Luppi just plain goes off! But then again there is nothing on it for you.

I bought the first one. Meaning that I've learnt from my past mistakes and won't be buying this one!

I will definitely get it as I am spinning the s/t for the "x"th time and I think it is fookin' great. Tastes differ as we know ! :tumbsup:

Not entirely true. 'Falling away' was surprisingly awesome with a delightful riff... but the rest of the CD was as melodic as a tree and the songs excited me as much as anal surgery. I hate that style of music so much it hurts.

Surprisingly I ended up preferring the debut, but these two were both pretty solid discs.

    • Fuck me, he is off on one again: https://rockcelebrities.net/michael-sweet-stryper-is-the-most-hated-band-of-all-time/ Just a few comments that make me cringe: “We may very well be the most ‘hated’ band of all time but we’ve persevered and we’re still here. We are The Yellow & Black Attack. We are Stryper.” Now I am sure there are bigger bands out there who have more haters than Stryper ever had. Whether this is for right or wrong reasons, Nickleback, U2 and Coldplay spring to mind as bands that have got more hate than Stryper over the years, and they mostly ignore it because they choose to acknowledge the millions who do love them rather than cry about those that hate them. “When I listen to Stryper (as an outsider and as unbiased as I possibly can be) I can hear some pretty cool stuff going on. And at the risk of sounding egotistical, I think Oz and I are one of the better guitar duos to have cranked those Mesas up and harmonize in the studio and on stage. I don’t know, maybe I’m just dreaming and we do suck. Oh well, if this is what ‘sucking’ looks and sounds like, I’ll take it.” How can you ever listen to your own music as an unbiased outsider? The guy is blatantly so thin skinned that he just cannot accept some people just do not like his music, or do not like overly preachy christian music. I have said before on here, I really like Stryper and some of Michaels projects outside of the band, but I have had serious burn out on anything he releases just because he releases way too fucking much. And his attitude has seriously turned me off of supporting him. I have not bought the last few Stryper albums. There are a couple of solo albums I am missing. Didn't buy the last Sweet & Lynch. And I only bought the first Sunbomb when it was mega cheap recently. The quality is hit or miss, which I think is down to him going for quantity over quality.  
    • Yeah will look forward to this also   £16 shipping!! I'll wait for a UK seller to stock  
    • Another band that really is not the band it is pretending to be
    • There seems to be no other takers, so here's the solution highlighted.     
    • Dodges Vs Diamondbacks. With this organist playing while car burns.  
    • I quite like this album. Best songs for me are Straight Up Jack, Nobody Gets Out Alive and Southside of Hell.  Score: 4 out of 6. 
    • New song 'Ghost In Me'.    
    • This cd is listed twice as Heard It on the Radio - Volume 1 and Heard It on the Radio Volume 1 and with two different covers 
    • Seems like it would be right up your alley. I'm enjoying the album immensely. French group.
