My fav of the new ones is without hesitation 'World Upside Down' with 'Cartesian Dreams' second and 'Come to My Kingdom' third. I really like 'Kingdom' at first and still like it but it was maybe just a little too AOR for my tastes. I didn't like 'Cartesian' much at all on the first spin but after many spins it's grown on me and I love it now.

Man that's a hard one, cousin. I also went with 'World upside down'. I think overall it's just slightly the best one, with the best tunes, but the other two are not far off at all. Fact is, I love all three. And another fact is, all three are better than 'Sahara'... which is a pretty good effort.

Better than Sahara? Now that's a party I will not be attending since that's my fav HOL disc.

WTF? Really? You crazy bastard. I still prefer 'Demons Down' and the s/t to the three most recent CDs, but if you ask me the last three CDs all CRUSH 'Sahara'. Which I do like... but cousin? Seriously?

Sorry cousin but 'Sahara' was my intro to HOL after hearing 'Can't Find My Way Home' and I was hooked and then saw the awesome video for 'Remember My Name'(still one of the great ballads of all time IMO). I absolutely love 'Demons Down' and it would probably be a case of #1A & #1B with those two. The debut which I got a few years later is awesome to but might be a little to AOR in places for me but there isn't any tunes I dislike though. I would say I probably like 'World Upside Down' just as much as the debut so it'd be my #3 or at least tied for #3.

'Remember My Name'(still one of the great ballads of all time IMO).

Won't get any argument from me there. That song is absolutely stunning and one of my all-time faves too.

 

I also love the title track and 'Laydown Staydown' is awesome... but I don't know. Aside from that I found it pretty average. Even that 'Can't find my way home' tune, I'm sorry to say. :(

"It Aint Love", "Heart on the Line", "Shoot", "Chains of Love" and "Kiss of Fire" are all awesome as well IMO.

I just love how they had the more hard rock songs with a mix of the more melodic stuff.

Plus Doug Aldrich played on it. :guitbannana:

    • Yep, this is a mighty fine album. Wasn't even going to match the debut, but it's very nice. A lot of fine, quality tunes, but if I had to pick a favourite I believe it'd be 'Nothing Left For Us.'   
    • Anyone check out their album released earlier this year? Simple Plan     -    Harder Than It Looks 1    .    Wake Me Up (When This Nightmare’s Over) 2    .    Ruin My Life (feat. Deryck Whibley) 3    .    The Antidote 4    .    Million Pictures of You 5    .    Anxiety 6    .    Congratulations 7    .    Iconic 8    .    Best Day of My Life 9    .    Slow Motion 10    .    Two If you liked them before you'll undoubtedly like this one as it's very much Simple Plan. I enjoy.  The clear stand-out for me is this teen anthem that 13 year old Georgia would crank in (one of) her bedroom(s) with tears in her eyes, but it also hits a spot on the other side of the equation. Pretty silly when it's such a teeny written anthem, but not every song that hits a spot needs to be orchestrated by Picasso, I guess. lol.   
    • Just bought it recently. Waiting for it to arrive to give it a good listen.
    • Bit of a creeper this album, but I dig. Just did a quick little read-up on these guys on wikipedia and seems like there's an interesting history. I knew them from way back when then they released two very solid but pretty unspectacular albums in 2005 and 2007, and then went silent and I kind of forgot about them. Seems like a bit happened in those years, including their lead vocalist passing in 2014 (R.I.P). Also, possibly of interest, Don Vedda played in this band from 2019-2020.  This new album has actually been released without a lead vocalist in the band, but a host of guest vocalists on every track. Amazingly, it flows very well. The style is more mellow, and I must say, preferable to me. As noted at the start, the songs are instantly nice, but really grow and they're some of my favourites of the year so far now.  Scary Kids Scaring Kids     -    Out of Light 1    .    Nightmare (feat. Spencer Charnas) 2    .    The Dark (feat. Noah Sebastian) 3    .    To the Unknown (feat. Vaines) 4    .    Until You Come Back (feat. Matt Macdonald) 5    .    Knock It All Down (feat. Lil Lotus) 6    .    New Morning (feat. Cove Reber) 7    .    Omens (feat. Spencer Chamberlain) 8    .    Black Hole (feat. Donovan Melero) 9    .    I Wanna Know (feat. Jesse Cash) 10    .    Escape from My Reality (feat. MOD SUN) 11    .    Endlessly Yours (feat. Tyler Posey, Phem) 12    .    For Atlas (feat. Michael Swank)            
    • Another one I'm sure I've gone on about in the past, but apparently no thread yet.  He doesn't seem to make a lot of music, but when he does it is awesome. Such as this... Paul Bartolome     -    Reflections, Pt.1 1    .    Fractures (feat. Dave Escamilla) 2    .    Anxiety (U Just Don't Get It) 3    .    While We're Still Young 4    .    Burn It Down (feat. David Bartolome) 5    .    Hypocrite   Easily one of the best songs of the year so far-       From the previously very awesome 'Screaming through the radio' EP-  
    • I know I've posted about this hombre several times before, but apparently not in his own thread. This must change as I find him to be so awesome but no one seems to acknowledge his existence. Not just here, but his youtube channel and reach seems to be so small. Crazy for someone who produces bone crunching quality on a madly consistent basis.  Eric Dalton     -    Playing Favorites (2022) 1    .    Calling Card 2    .    Oblivion 3    .    Head in the Clouds 4    .    X My Heart 5    .    Infection 6    .    My Demons 7    .    Solace 8    .    A Part of Me 9    .    Without You 10    .    Deception     Sorry, I know I've posted this before, but his youtube channel features all three of his (excellent) albums in full if interest permits. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCb2I3-4_UvFnWWTcXBBLPYA  
    • Interesting what bands catch on this forum and the ones that don't. To me, this is a pretty good band and I'm a bit surprised, on a forum where bands like Shiraz Lane and Bad City are appreciated, there seems to be no interest in these guys. Good band that does, for whatever reason, remind me of the likes of the aforementioned Bad City.  There's a bit of hit and miss about the debut and it's far from perfect, but a pretty cool band worthy of mention and interest on a forum such as this.  Anyway, this was one of my favourites of the album- For die-hards, I stumbled across this non-album track.  
    • New video for 'I Will Be Stronger' feat. Joel Hoekstra.    
    • Very nice piece of modern rock on offer here. Lot to like on this one.  Fame on Fire     -    Welcome to the Chaos 1    .    Intro 2    .    Welcome to the Chaos (feat. Spencer Charnas of Ice Nine Kills) 3    .    Ketamine 4    .    Cut Throat 5    .    Emo Shit (feat. Kody Lavigne) 6    .    Lost In Doubt 7    .    Robbery 8    .    Signs 9    .    Plastic Heart 10    .    Rotting Away 11    .    Back Then 12    .    Jaded 13    .    Dead or Alive
