Favourite H.E.A.T. album - Two fantastic albums that I rate very highly, but I think Freedom Rock just edges the first one. I love almost every song on it, while the s/t has 2 or 3 songs I could live without. But it's a hard choice and I know many will probably disagree with me here.


Favourite song off s/t - again hard choice but my vote goes to "Late Night Lady" closely followed by "Feel It Again"


Favourite song off Freedom Rock - so many great songs on this, High On Love, Danger Road, Everybody, Cast Away and the list goes on... but still my vote goes to "Shelter", the only ballad on the album, but what a ballad! Fantastic verses and a chorus out of this world - just an excellent song all the way.


Well, that's me, what's your choices?

These were my picks:


1. 'Freedom Rock'

2. 'Bring the stars'

3. 'Tonight'



I only just prefer the new album to the debut... a little more consistent. 'High on love' is terrible (sorry Kim!) and I really don't like 'Black night' either, but aside from that, every other song is great. On the debut their are no actual fillers, but a few noticeably weaker tracks.


My faves off the debut would probably be:


1. Bring the stars

2. Keep on dreaming

3. Cry

4. Never let go


Unfortunately, the real piss-off for me is that my favourite song off 'Freedom Rock' actually didn't come with my version of the CD. :( I LOVE 'Tonight' and it's my favourite song, but it's on my Ipod seperately to the rest of the physical CD. My favourite song from my version of the CD is 'We're gonna make it to the end.'

Cool choices Geoff. Indeed, "Tonight" is a great song and I think they should have put it on the CD. Have you heard the song "Fill Your Head With Rock" ? It's only released on a special Sweden Rock compilation CD, but it's another awesome H.E.A.T. track.

Thanks for the link, Kim. Cool song. A little different for HEAT, but I actually really dig it. Very happening tune. If someone has an MP3 of that they could forward to me that would be most appreciated. :)

Geoff, I can easily fix an MP3 of this, just write or PM your e-mail addy and I will be happy to send it to you.


The background for this song is that "Fill Your Head With Rock" had been used as a slogan by Sweden Rock Festival for many years. By 2008 the SRF people reached out to different bands and asked them to write a song with that name to be included on a special compilation CD. I actually have that CD and it has 14 tracks named "Fill Your Head With Rock". Other notable bands on the compilation are Helix, Kim Mitchell and Nocturnal Rites.

I went for "Follow Me" and "Everybody Wants to be Someone" as fave tunes. "Freedom Rock" is the better disc IMO...

My vote is 100% the same as TIM's.


Freedom Rock has the better tunes, but the debut's production and musical direction has more balls, something that's lacking on Freedom Rock. My mixed cd (I'm old school) of the band has 9 tracks from Freedom Rock and 5 from the debut, so my vote would go to Freedom Rock.

Only about 5 votes so far, but everyone has chosen something different....shows the strength of these 2 albums!

That or the fact that only you, Geoff, Tim, Kim and I are the bands only fans on HH. :lol:

    • Sorry, that wasn't really what I meant. What I was really going for is that the songs on other albums seem to me to have more of a similar feel to them, like you can tell the songs for Freedom Rock were pretty much all written at the same time. I'm not saying that the songs on Force Majeure don't sound like H.E.A.T (even though I maintain it's not as good, based on the first few spins, as their previous efforts), but that they sound, to me, more "scatterbrained" than the selections from other records. That's not an easy thing to explain, but "direction" was the best word I could think of.    Again, I probably could explained my point better. I wasn't advocating for more guitars so much, but for more variety in the guitars we get. One of the best things for me about the first two H.E.A.T albums (less so for Address the Nation, but still there) was the subtle trade-offs between Dalone and Rivers and the solos that switched between them (good examples of this include the guitar work on "Late Night Lady," "Danger Road" and "Tonight," off the top of my head). Simply because Dalone and Rivers played different set ups and had some variance in tone, you could tell the difference between their playing (though admittedly there were times where Eric Rivers was completely underutilized and overshadowed). Because of the the combination of this record's production and the guitars being all Dave, you don't have as much of that, and that's what I was trying to convey.
    • Agree it reminds of earlier material, but I'm much less of a "Hang Tough" guy and much more of a "What A Shame" kind of guy.
    • Skid Row Nelson Steel Panther Harem Scarem WASP Van Hagar Saliva Joey Tempest Michael Sweet White Lion Mr. Big ... are the easy ones for me. Possibly Warrant as well come to think of it. Some other popular ones listed taht I don't agree with would be Slaughter - 2nd album pipped it GNR - always preferred either UYI albums Tuff - really only had 1 1/2 albums so don't count    
    • and the lyrics tick tock time to rock don't make you cringe?? if it was 1986 and I was 16 it might have been just passable but now, no. 
    • Another release that seems to have been completely overlooked here on HH... check out those vids for "Give It Up" and "Love Will Not Let You Down". I swear both tunes sound like something you'd hear from AdrianGale!  Compassion | Akiba Music (bandcamp.com)  
    • I might stone thrown at me, but hear some Scorpions.
    • "One Voice", which is a demo, is the only one I hear the tape "hiss" on...
    • Is that cassette tape hiss I hear at the start of the song? Is the whole album like that or only the demo tracks?
  • Create New...
