Yeah, my balls are in a knot in anticipation for this one. Like Place Vendome did this year, I hope this will cement itself early on as a frontrunner for the year.

I just caught the sample track "Do You Wanna Taste It" over at melodicrock. In a word....PHENOMENAL! These guys are easily one of my top 5 bands ever.

Hopefully this will be a cracking start to the new year.

 

A cracking start? Man, you're British.

 

But I do agree.

Listening to this release right now. Best they've done, IMO. The choruses remind me A LOT of rockin' Gotthard at their best.

 

This seems to be more traditional hard rock/melodic rock than their previous efforts; a bit lighter but more melodic, and it works well!

Please tell us where you got your copy?

 

It's not released on CD yet; it comes out in January. I get advance releases directly from Frontiers as high-resolution MP3s.

 

And no, I won't make them available to anyone other than the short samples on the main site or an occasional single full track I list here. It's one of the conditions of being able to get them. It's people abusing this and sharing the full albums around that has the labels PO'ed about downloading.

Overall sounds a really strong album.

 

The last track and the bonus track didnt do too much for me but the rest all sounded like classic Wigwam to these ears.

 

One thought tho..........ive listened to 2 clips of 'Im Still Burning' and the verses are such a rip of 'One Night Of Passion' (The Poodles)

 

Really looking forward to the whole album, and i hope those solos kill, as we havent heard any evidence of them yet????!

 

Cheers

Man I hope I'm alone with my opinion on this (for the sake of the band), but I have to admit I'm pretty unimpressed with this. Can't see it near my top ten come year end, to be honest. Some killer songs (as always) but a lot more fillers than usual. Starting out with the first two songs - 'Do Ya Wanna Taste It' and 'Walls Come Down' and then ending with the last two pretty awful songs - 'Chasing Rainbows' and 'Gotta Get It On'. Four fillers right off the bat.

 

'Wild one', 'Still I'm burning', 'All you wanted' and 'Rocket Through My Heart' will be four of the best songs of the year - but where are the rest that sound like these? These four songs, to me, is what Wig Wam is about but there is a severe shortage this time round. Love these, though.

 

'C'mon everybody' is only okay and the title track is the fifth best song but like Jez said earlier the two ballads, 'Man in the moon' and 'From here' aren't that great. I actually like both songs, but both have pretty weak hooks.

 

Anyway, only 5 songs really work for me on this album, which is a pretty unfortunate strike rate, imo. Still love the band, but this is easily their weakest disc, imo.

Uh-oh...I hope you're wrong Geoff. I just put in my order for this at NEH Records. This is one my top bands ever. But, to be fair, one can't expect a band to bat 100% forever. I'll forgive them if there's a couple of fillers on this release.

Definitely, without a doubt still worth owning. But yeah, I guess the band themselves have set some amazingly high standards to live up to and can be forgiven for, imo, a minor slip.

    • comparing this to Defiants is ridiculous- Defiants is just D2 under a different name  And it will probably be best album of 2023 
    • beautiful, all in their prime 
    • Pretty over this stupid and weak supergroup crap from Frontiers now. Feeling cynical that they are just trying to squeeze every last $ from the fanbase. Fan abuse.
    • The fundamental difference is that the mainstream media is now portraying the Chinese COVID protestors as glorious freedom fighters standing up for their inalienable human rights, where protesters in the U.S. and Canada were portrayed as terrorists, insurrectionists, and right-wing nazis by the very same mainstream media. Fuckers. I guess the current administration(s) have exhausted the money pit being diverted to Ukraine with respect to public approval, so now time to ratchet up somewhere else to send gobs of taxpayer money so that billions can be funneled back to the DNC via crypto...
    • Agree! There was a time back 5 or 6 years ago when I'd get into these project type things....Defiants, Nordic Union, etc.  And I'm sure I'll still enjoy new Defiants music when it drops. But I'm definitely saturated on these things and I'm basically to the point where I'm paying very little attention to them.  I'd rather invest my time into "real" bands that I might actually get the chance to see live someday. Like you say, I'll still sometimes check out these things and maybe I toss a song into my playlist here or there.  But odds I actually purchase an album from one of these new projects is very low.  
    • This seems like something that would be massively exciting maybe five or six years ago but now, not so much. I'm just so bored with the Frontiers factory churning out studio project after studio project with the same songwriters, the same production, and random hodgepodges of vocalists...year after year after year. I'm just not interested in this stuff anymore, I'll listen but the odds that I'll come back to it (let alone buy the album) are low. Those songs are mediocre. They're not ADV's worst but they are not his best either. IMO Robbie steals the show in both of them. Why is ADV still doing backing vocals for a project created specifically for THREE vocalists?  P.S. that band name SUCKS lol
    • New single 'April Rain' from the album 'Naked Soul'. And ADV ruining everything... From Frontiers: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce T3nors, a very special new AOR project. Two of America’s greatest AOR singers, Robbie LaBlanc and Toby Hitchock join forces with one of Sweden’s finest AOR singers, Kent Hilli to form the vocali trio of T3nors. These absolutely outstanding vocalists have come together on one glorious melodic rock album, "Naked Soul", which will be released on February 10, 2023.  The story behind this record actually dates back quite a few years as Frontiers has been wanting to do a “three tenors” type of record for quite some time. Given the extremely high level of AOR vocal talent that the label has worked with in the past and continues to work with today, the idea never really lost steam. The issue was always finding the right pairing of three singers and the timing for the individual singers to have holes in their schedule to record. With the onset of the global pandemic in 2020, everyone's availability, for better or for worse, became more flexible and the idea started to become reality.  Pairing Robbie, Toby, and Kent together seemed an ideal team up and all three were enthusiastic about the idea when approached to participate. The rest, as they say, is history. Kent Hilli is the newest of the three singers on the scene, but has quickly made an impact with the albums he has released with his main band Perfect Plan, as well as being the new frontman for GIANT, solo material, and guest appearances with Restless Spirits, the melodic rock project from Lords Of Black guitarist Tony Hernando.  Toby Hitchcock is an American singer known for his solo albums as well as his work with the esteemed melodic rock genius Jim Peterik in Pride Of Lions. Robbie LaBlanc is an American singer, guitarist, and songwriter known for his work with Blanc Faces, Find Me, a project with The Murder Of My Sweet drummer/producer Daniel Flores, East Temple Avenue, and more.  If you are a lover of all things AOR, then T3nors' debut album, "Naked Soul" is a can't miss release!   Tracklisting:1.

    • Very sad news. She had a lovely voice. I absolutely love both 'Rumours' and 'Tango In The Night'...both part of my musical journey. 
    • Superb album...one of the best pure Westcoast releases this year. Love the Chaka Khan cover of 'Ain't Nobody' as well. Great stuff
    • Not perfect by a long way, but the album a hell of a lot better than some in the other stuff Frontiers put out on a regular basis
