First Signal - This City


T-BONE

Recommended Posts

Love it. Great guitar, great verses, great vocals (of course) and a good chorus. Is this album going to kick some backside?

Great song, poor video. Harry looks like he's holding a guitar because some idiot thought it was a good idea and forced him to do so. During the blistering solo, the camera goes on him playing a G chord or something. Looks bad on all counts.

Really like this track, so I've just been listening to the song samples on HH. First impressions:

'When You Believe'; chorus is awful, just completely lacking in any imagination imo.

'Part of Me' is okay.

'Crazy'; not bad as far as power ballads go (and I'm not usually a ballad fan).

'Goodbye to the Good Times; not bad, but it just sounds like I've heard it so many times before.

'First Signal'; so-so, not bad I suppose.

 

Couldn't be bothered to listen to any more, I think I'll download 'This City' when it comes out and skip the rest.

Even on the Harem Scarem live DVD, he "holds" a guitar for most of the show, but doesn't seem to really play it all that much. Maybe he's shy and it gives him something to hide behind.

Fair enough, I'll give them a listen. I just thought 5 tracks that did nothing for me was enough and couldn't really face listening to any more at the time. I'll get onto it this evening. :D

    • Shitbomb - Shit in the Sky 😒   I found “Unbreakable” to at least be listenable; “Steel Hearts”… not so much. Unless a 3rd single turns out to be excellent, this will be a big skip. 
    • I thoroughly enjoyed 2017’s “Defying Gravity “, and was hoping for more of the same. “Good Luck Trying” is, unfortunately, not it. Sure hope there’s a lot better tracks to come…
    • Never been into BABYMETAL but am a huge Electric Callboy fan. Been listening to this song over and over again in the last four hours or so. Fucking love it. The Schillo Brothers have created another brilliant video. A lot of bands could learn a lot from them in the video production department.
    • These riffs sound like something from a bad nu-metal album released in the early 2000s. Slow, chuggy, terrible guitar tone and pointless pinch harmonies. The vocals are obviously unintelligible but instrumentally it isn't any good either. Who's going to buy this shit?

    • 1/10...that is bad.
