Spin Gallery - Embrace


Jez

Recommended Posts

Now here is one upcoming disc that I am really looking forward too hearing. The debut 'Standing Tall' was top notch Westcoast/AOR and one of the best releases of 2004 for me (god has it been 5 years?). I have yet to hear any 'Embrace' as of yet, but my interest is at a maximum for this one.

Based on a few comments I might check these guys out. Who is their style comparable to? And why'd I always think they were a prog band? :lol:

I think you are getting confused with Shadow Gallery mate.

 

You never heard the debut 'Standing Tall'? Awesome disc.

 

They are very Westcoast /AOR like The Denander stuff (he featured on the debut as Guitarist and Producer), Heartplay, Toto, etc etc, so maybe not your cup of tea.

Ah, that's the ticket. I probably am getting Spin and Shadow mixed up. I'm pretty sure I never heard the debut but if it was another Denander project I might have and dismissed it so quick I forgot about it.

 

If you honestly think it's better than On the Rise's debut I have to try it out, but so far nothing I've heard from Denander matches a band like Noize Toyz, let alone On The Rise. :lol: So I won't hold my breath. ;)

    • His music videos are always good: either very silly, or very sexy. So I've got this queued up on the PC. Looking forward to it. 
    • New single "The Animal" dropped today, not bad at all:    
    • I dig the new tune!  Honestly, might be my favorite yet from these guys. I like that this kind of gets away from the  Bon Jovi Country vibe they sometimes had on the debut.  For me, this has a fresh, big sound to it.   Will have the new one on my radar.
    • 3rd single... Love It   
    • New video for 'Dance'.    
    • Vandenberg - Sin Chicago - The Chicago Story (2 CD) Megadeth - So Far, So Good, So What? (Expanded) The Allman Betts Band - Down to the River Mike Oldfield - Five Miles Out (Remaster) Buckingham & McVie - S/T Michael Hutchence - S/T Roxy Music - Stranded (Remaster) Echo & the Bunnymen - Reverberation  Echo & the Bunnymen - Evergreen (Expanded)
    • After releasing two albums with AOR/Melodic Rock band Streets, ”1st” (1983) and ”Crimes In Mind” (1985), lead singer and keyboardist Steve Walsh returned to Kansas, to revive the band along with original members Phil Ehart (drums) and Rich Williams (Guitar). Furthermore, the lineup was completed by the addition of bassist Billy Greer (from Streets) and young, promising, former Dixie Dregs guitar man Steve Morse, who also contributed with composing skills and backing vocals. Eventually, the group’s ”Power” album was released in November of 1986, rather much to the vintage Kansas and Prog Rock purists dismissal, as I recall it. The heavier sound/direction and absence of violinist Robby Steinhardt, songwriter/keyboardist/guitarist Kerry Livgren and bassist Dave Hope were all contributing factors to the disapproval, it seems. However, mentioned ”Power” should perhaps instead be judged on its own merits, as it is what it is. Put out in a time when commercial Melodic Hardrock was very much in fashion, with FM rock radio and MTV as ever the important ingredients of daily life. In the end, the album actually landed at a respectable No. 35 on the Billboard chart, while the single/ballad ”All I Wanted” eventually rose to an even more impressive No. 19.

    • They have a real knack for writing (and producing!) songs that could be featured in '80s coming of age films and I mean that in the most complimentary way possible. Really putting the retro in retrowave 
    • Gonna post this as just recently discovered them, and loving what they do. I know most here wont care due to not being their style or not singing in English, but as a Band Maid fan, this shit is right up my street. They are a South Korean band. Posting two songs. One original and one a cover (Maneskin, a band I dont really care about) which is kinda impressive seeing as the song is in Italian, a language they don't speak ha ha
