Digging through my CD's the other day, I yanked this baby out and threw it in the truck... I had forgotten just how good this release is! Sounded fantastic on a nice Kicker/Kenwood system. No filler on this one! :headbanger:

Agreed on the excellent production! it does sound fantastic on a clear system, but??? as for "no fillers" Kiss The Bastards and Taking My Chances On Love weren't exactly driving me to turn it up! best song imo We Belong!! fantastic song, one of my favorite songs ever, also Lessons Of Love and Slipping Into Darkness! but an absolutely phenomenal sound, and release, I still like Sword better though!

Hey Ty, I agree with you, that is a killer release. Not long ago I pulled my "aged" copy for a listen and then it all came back........heavy-edged melodic hard rock, cranking guitars, monster hooks, stacked backing vocals, laced with some hard-hitting attitude. A-h-h-h-h!!! Definitely good stuff for driving down the highway!!! Oh.....did you remember...it was all co-written and produced by Aldo Nova and Bon Jovi? That has to be good for something too....

Killer disc. I was never too into 'Kiss the Bastards' or 'Frankenstien', but I loved the rest. Including 'Taking my chances' - awesome ballad, imo. My faves are also 'We belong' and the awesome 'Slipping into darkness'.

Listening to Slipping Into Darkness, I kinda get that 18 and Life type storyline going on. There's many different styles I'd attribute to this band including Hurricane, Skid Row, Wildside and Jesse Strange

That was one of the thoughts that sprang to my mind the first time I listened to this as well. It is really 18 and life part 2. Nevertheless it is a great song. It is good to hera Rick HUghes sings this kind of music. We belong is also a smash hit.

Joining this message board was a mistake! I just keep reading about stuff I need to hear. This sounds fantastic so is high on the list now, but I don't think I'll be able to get hold of it for a long time - it seems to be very expensive. Especially now I've just splashed out on the first Paul Laine CD (also due to reading HH)...

Seconded. I just heard some samples on youtube and now I have to get this album along with Neverland and Richie Kotzen's Fever Dream.

Make that 1000% if this is the Neverland featuring Dean Ortega and Patrick Sugg. What a monster debut; highly underrated. Would love to hear anything else by them (excluding Surreal World that is. Not that I hated it but with Bump on vocals it's not even in the same ballpark). :headbanger::headbanger::headbanger:

    • From FaceBook   Midnite City     · IT'S OFFICIAL! We have now started work on what will become our fourth album which will be coming your way in 2023. The songs are written and the work has begun. As with our previous albums, it's never a quick process. We have a long journey ahead of us, but the work starts now! Look out for lots of studio updates
    • This is a good one. The Deluxe Edition from MelodicRock Classics looks interesting. See below:  
    • New songs. From Frontiers: Frontiers Music Srl is thrilled to announce the upcoming release of Perfect Plan's third studio album, "Brace For Impact". Over the course of their first two albums, "All Rise" and "Time For A Miracle", the Swedes have quickly established themselves as a new gold standard in not only the Scandinavian melodic rock genre, but the melodic rock genre as a whole. "Brace For Impact" does nothing to slow that momentum and fans should do exactly as the album's title says in preparation for their latest opus.  Produced by the band, songwriting started in August 2021 for "Brace For Impact" and was wrapped up by the end of the year. The band then spent January of this year working on arrangements and pre-production work before starting the process of recording in the first week of February. Asked about the musical direction of the album, vocalist Kent Hilli says, "Well, hard question...we didn’t think too much about that when we started writing as we want everything to come naturally to us. All we focused on and wanted to do was to write really great melodic rock songs with great riffs and melodies. But I think we have more ”rockers” on this album than before. I would say that it's melodic rock in general, but maybe slightly harder than our previous albums. But much like our second album, ”Time For A Miracle” we have a great mixture between hard rock, melodic rock, and AOR in there...and some songs even have some elements of progressive rock and some bluesier elements mixed in also. And we have just one ballad on this album. Our goal when writing an album is that it should feel like playing songs on a jukebox and I think we have succeeded with that on this album. Everything sounds like PERFECT PLAN 3.0, really! I think we have definitely pushed everything up a notch from songwriting and lyrics to arrangements and overall performance and sound. With the addition of the great Tobias Lindell who does the mixing…everything sounds really big and majestic I think!" Sometimes the stars align and create a perfect balance of talent within a group. A band like Perfect Plan is the “perfect" (pun intended) example of that: a superb singer, a well-oiled band of experienced players, and a great songwriting talent with a knack for unforgettable melodies and driving rhythms. Add to that the right single released at the right time and Perfect Plan’s emergence as immediate rising stars on the melodic rock scene is no surprise. The song that “built” their reputation is of course the awesome “In and Out of Love,” the first single/video that kicked off the promotion of the band’s 2018 debut album “All Rise,” released on Frontiers in April of that year. The band followed their debut album with the sophomore release "Time For A Miracle" in 2020. Hyperbole aside, it was a major step forward across the board. Opting for a slightly heavier and more “in your face” sound, Perfect Plan matured and created an outstanding balance of melodies and energy, with the obvious references to the sound of the classics (think Foreigner, Survivor, The Storm, Giant, etc.) and Scandinavian AOR with a recognizable and personal feel. So, after a stunning debut and sticking the landing with their second album, what does Perfect Plan have up their sleeve for an encore? Well, all we can say is..."Brace For Impact”! Tracklisting: 1. Surrender 2. If Love Walks In 3. Can’t Let You Win 4. Gotta Slow Me Down 5. Stop The Bleed 6. My Angel 7. Devil’s Got The Blues 8. Bring Me A Doctor 9. Still Undefeated 10. Emelie 11. Walk Through Fire Line-Up: Kent Hilli - Lead vocals Rolf Nordström - Guitar Leif Ehlin - Keyboards Fredrik Forsberg - Drums Mats Byström - Bass   https://perfectplan.se facebook        
    • Baton Rogue Morgue - Massacre of St. Valentine's Day. Great track despite the clunky chorus. Solid album.    
    • I've just posted this "Grim Reaper" retrospective in another thread, but it should be here as well.    
    • "Grim Reaper" features this time. I don't know if he had this one in the works, but it's a nice tribute.    
    • I would have put Animalize as the middle feature piece as the album cover looks the most "blanketty"
    • My favorite guitarist of all time Rock In Peace  Eddie 🎸 
    • The full album's on YouTube.
