Slyboyz - Good Time Music

Just wondering what people think of this album? I was thinking about buying the CD, but some reviews suggest that there are only a couple of really good tracks. I've heard a few tracks online, first impressions are:

'Solitaire' is pretty good,

'Dreamin' is good until the chorus, which is a bit disappointing

'The Higher You Get' is a nice ballad

'Keep On Believin' does nothing for me at all, I found this song extremely dull, and

'Autumn Angel' is an average ballad that badly needs a guitar solo.

 

Any thoughts on the album?

I really like the album. But I like all the stuff from the guys in Savannah. It's worth tracking down, in my opinion. I didn't pay too much on evilbay for my copy.

Cracker of an album. Been a little while since I pulled it out, but going from memory:

 

1. Solitaire ; honestly one of the best melodic hard rock songs I have ever heard in my life. Flawless.

 

2. Keep on Believin' ; average.

 

3. Lil' Too Young ; average, but a bit of fun.

 

4. What Is Love ; stunning ballad. Love it.

 

5. Safe Sex ; average.

 

6. The Higher You Get ; even better ballad than 'What is love.' Beautiful track.

 

7. Live It Up ; average.

 

8. Tell Me a Story ; decent hard rocker.

 

9. Good Time Music ; pretty average again.

 

10. Autumn Angel ; I actually really like this track. Lovely little acoustic ballad.

 

11. Hold on to My Heart ; more perfect melodic hard rock. Another album highlight.

 

12. Dreamin' ; and the album closes how it began - with another huge melodic hard rocker. Love this one too.

 

In conclusion, yeah half the album is pretty average but the other half is really about as good as it gets, imo. Based on the strength of the good songs, I would not hesitate for a second to pick this up. They are that good.

Ditto!

 

Not sure what this album sells for these days. but I'm guessing it's out of my price range.

Yep Geoff is spot-on. In fact "Solitaire" is almost worth the entry-price alone....

Encouraging comments. Sounding like I might pick this up, found a copy for just over £10...

Another one, when they're good... well, they're actually pretty amazing. When they're not so great, they're not so great. ;)

For me, this CD is a combination of strong musicianship, skillful song writing and personal and professional chemistry that make for a fantastic musical force. Massive harmonies and enough choruses and hooks to drive one wild. When I first heard this CD, it reminded me of bands such as TRADIA, TYKETTO or UNDER FIRE and I found it in my CD player continually. Truly infectious is the proper word. SLYBOYZ members, Dario Dipietrantonio, guitar/vocals, and Marty Olga, keyboards/vocals went on to form another great AOR band, SAVANNAH.

For me, 'Solitaire' is one of those epitome of melodic hard rock moments. Benchmark kind of tune, imo.

    • With a rack like that, I'm sure she is.
    • Didn't see anything on this and 1 the new songs are real nice and 2 the Dare Force connection and Johnny's Minnesotian presence just makes it all to epic! His debut solo release Truth or Dare is out now and the 3 video tracks are really good, heck @Geoff my even like it.   I am partial to #2 atm. https://www.facebook.com/JohnnyONeilOfficial https://www.johnnyoneil.com/      
    • I thought of this one today for some reason.  I'm sure everyone here is familiar with "Talking Heads - Psycho Killer" from '77, a very strange track in it's own right, but does anyone here remember the 1980 parody track "Psycho Chicken" by "The Fools"?      
    • That's more like it mate. Your best one so far. Keep it up.

    • The police really haven't changed much over the last 10, 20 or 30 years...they just get a lot more negative publicity today...a cop can't fart in public without it being headline news....we are a society of laws, rules and regulations and we need cops to police and enforce those laws or our society is fucked....it's a shitty job most of the time and many people would not want to do it...and remember they are affected just like we are by all the same shit that is happening around us so maybe we should give them some credit and a little understanding....while I'm not a fan of any kind of authority , I realize that it is necessary and we should do our best to support and respect it....that's not to say we should give them a pass when they fuck up as they should be held to a higher degree of integrity and honor when compared to those they serve....
