OH WOW! Awesome news! I was fearing this had been canned. So how are those two songs? Will listen to them tonight for sure.

Eric St Michaels on vocals - AWESOME. I probably said this in another thread, but he was my favourite vocalist with this band (even though the first 2 albums are easily their best). I really hope they deliver something awesome here.

Just gave the two songs a spin. I like 'Lonely Rider' despite it being a little bit average, but I don't like 'She's so hot' at all.

The new tracks from the "Best-of" cd (Girl On My Screen, Trapped In The City, Stay) has been "re-cut" and they are going to be included in the new album as well.

Nice. I never got around to getting those ones.

Seems a bit average to me...When the music catches my ears, then the lyrics have too much cheese...Have to say no...

Very slight change of subject... I had 'Sign In The Sky' on tape years ago and only really liked the title track and 'In The Middle of The Night'; the latter being the reason I bought the album, having heard it on Headbangers Ball. I was thinking about getting a 'best of' CD by China - do folks think it's worth it?

No. Those two songs and the majority of the bands debut disc (which was awesome, and which you need to own) are the only good songs this mediocre band have ever written.

Wow, totally disagree with that. I think the s/t and 'Sign in the sky' are both fantastic albums. So basically, James, if you didn't like 'Sign in the Sky' I wouldn't even bother with the rest of them because that's as good as they ever got, imo.

 

Something about this new album is leaving a bad vibe with me and I have a feeling it'll be a major letdown, but I'm still very much looking forward to hearing it. I heard it's a cross between 'Go all the way' and 'Natural Groove', which are undoubtedly their worst 2 albums, so we'll see how this goes.

From what I've heard, and this is one man's opinion, it goes not very well (pretty fucking bad actually).

I agree with Geoff that Sign In The Sky is as good as it gets.

Having looked at the track list again, I seem to recall liking 'Harder Than Hell' a bit and 'Animal Victim' quite a lot, so I'm wondering if I do need to get hold of the debut after all...

 

:doh:

Give it another spin, mate. If you like those three songs I'm sure there'd be others on there you may have overlooked. 'So long' is a beautiful ballad and 'Second chance' is my favourite track on the CD - killer melodic rocker.

God you must be bored dredging up old threads ;-))

 

Sounds like a turkey so I'll pass............

 

Yeah I guessed this would be a turkey too. Not sure what it was that gave me that impression, but here's a hint: I already own a couple of this bands past albums.

    • "Local News" doesn't even exist anymore.Right out of the gate they slam you with the Covid numbers...the body count...a clusterf__k of  negativity..maybe a little time for weather and sports and then newscast DONE! On radio - same thing  every half hour: rinse-wash-repeat.National / global depression,drug use,suicide rates still climbing....
    • As if we need something else to worry about but with overpopulation and a rapidly changing world due to climate issues..... In 2009, a patient in Japan developed a new fungal infection on their ear. The highly transmissible Candida auris fungus had been previously unknown to science (and resistant to the drugs available to treat it), but within a few years, cases started emerging in Venezuela, Iran, Russia, and South Africa. Scientists assumed that the spread was due to human travel, but when they sequenced the cases, they were surprised to find that these strains weren't closely related at all. Instead, scientists were seeing multiple, independent infections of an unknown fungal disease, emerging around the world, all at the same time. About a third of people infected with Candida auris die from the infection within 30 days, and there have now been thousands of cases in 47 countries. Some scientists think this sudden boom in global cases is a harbinger of things to come.
    • Agreed. I subbed to Russell Brand starting about 2 months ago. Yes, he's on the Left, but VERY even-handed IMO.
    • It's so hard to find unbiased info on anything these days...I just wish this virus wasn't being politicized...trust the science...once the science figures out wtf is going on which it hasn't yet....
    • Did you hear the fabled "roadmap to reopening the borders" has now been halted/delayed due the new (horrified screaming) variants? It's so predictable and the media machine are backing the states the whole way. More people at home, more people watching TV, more people buying shit from billionaires, more money for advertising, more wages for journalists , more votes for the government, more laws to control the populace. Win win win for elites.
    • This is currently the best independent media commentator on the internet. He comes from the Left, but old-school classical liberal and not the new devisive identity politics. Here he is discussing the shit going down in Australia.  
    • Gotta love the irresponsible national / global media."The new normal" for these idiots is the endless,fear mongering ritual abuse of the populace where any news on the "virus".."variants"..etc brings another flogging with the covid stick.Anyone who dares to question the over-reaching actions by government,"the science" or the asinine-repetitive-exploitive newsroom press propaganda are labeled a "conspiracy theorist"..or misinformation spreader...we've seen it all before -  try it on someone else.
    • Erik sounds good but song does little for me.  Really don't like the chorus...if you can even call that a chorus.
    • Got my refund today, fucking stupid, I was looking forward to this, oh well Loudness in March, havent seen them since 82, I was 5, my very first concert, super stoked for that.
