Hope it's better than that wretched Ramones tribute that Kristy "Krash" Majors put out on his own a few years back :puke:

I dunno what is going on with PBF these days.

Last time I saw them was probably two years ago, and they said they had a covers album coming out that was already recorded (they had a 3 track sampler from it available at the gig) and that a new studio album was due last year, but neither surfaced.

Now there is a Kiss tribute as well?

That's OK... Gene has just announced that next year KISS is releasing a tribute to Pretty Boy Floyd. The release will contain 14 tracks that span the career of PBF. :headbanger:

Well, I guess when ya can't get Ariel to write any more songs for you, you have to do SOMETHING. I mean ... uhhh ...

Yeah, these guys are shitting me too. The best we've got from them since 'Leather boyz' is the dodgy Perris release of 'Tonight belongs to the young' and also 'Porn Stars', which was excellent, but let's face it, it was 70% new versions of songs already on their debut. Aside from that you have the totally shithouse 'Size really does matter' (Is this really the best they can do?) and a few EPs. Seriously, do they have nothing to offer without Ariel Stiles?

 

I'd love to see the 3 discs worth of demos after the debut I have lying around get polished and released properly. And that means a better version of 'Tonight belongs to the young' too, which was about as good a sound quality as the demos I have.

 

As for the KISS covers, I vomit in my mouth and spit it on the CD.

Well the album is what it is really.

The songs really arent anything new in the way they are performed, they just sound like the originals with Steve on vocals.

That said, its not a bad combination as I am a huge fan of PBF and really like Kiss.

 

As for the above comments. Well its all a matter of taste, but give me Size really does matter over most other so called glam acts that get ranted and raved about on here.

 

For my money, the reason there hasnt been a new album is the instability of the line up since the reunion of the Leather boyz line up, and the fact the Kristy and Steve seem to be working on too many other projects etc.

    • This is a good one. The Deluxe Edition from MelodicRock Classics looks interesting. See below:  
    • New songs. From Frontiers: Frontiers Music Srl is thrilled to announce the upcoming release of Perfect Plan's third studio album, "Brace For Impact". Over the course of their first two albums, "All Rise" and "Time For A Miracle", the Swedes have quickly established themselves as a new gold standard in not only the Scandinavian melodic rock genre, but the melodic rock genre as a whole. "Brace For Impact" does nothing to slow that momentum and fans should do exactly as the album's title says in preparation for their latest opus.  Produced by the band, songwriting started in August 2021 for "Brace For Impact" and was wrapped up by the end of the year. The band then spent January of this year working on arrangements and pre-production work before starting the process of recording in the first week of February. Asked about the musical direction of the album, vocalist Kent Hilli says, "Well, hard question...we didn’t think too much about that when we started writing as we want everything to come naturally to us. All we focused on and wanted to do was to write really great melodic rock songs with great riffs and melodies. But I think we have more ”rockers” on this album than before. I would say that it's melodic rock in general, but maybe slightly harder than our previous albums. But much like our second album, ”Time For A Miracle” we have a great mixture between hard rock, melodic rock, and AOR in there...and some songs even have some elements of progressive rock and some bluesier elements mixed in also. And we have just one ballad on this album. Our goal when writing an album is that it should feel like playing songs on a jukebox and I think we have succeeded with that on this album. Everything sounds like PERFECT PLAN 3.0, really! I think we have definitely pushed everything up a notch from songwriting and lyrics to arrangements and overall performance and sound. With the addition of the great Tobias Lindell who does the mixing…everything sounds really big and majestic I think!" Sometimes the stars align and create a perfect balance of talent within a group. A band like Perfect Plan is the “perfect" (pun intended) example of that: a superb singer, a well-oiled band of experienced players, and a great songwriting talent with a knack for unforgettable melodies and driving rhythms. Add to that the right single released at the right time and Perfect Plan’s emergence as immediate rising stars on the melodic rock scene is no surprise. The song that “built” their reputation is of course the awesome “In and Out of Love,” the first single/video that kicked off the promotion of the band’s 2018 debut album “All Rise,” released on Frontiers in April of that year. The band followed their debut album with the sophomore release "Time For A Miracle" in 2020. Hyperbole aside, it was a major step forward across the board. Opting for a slightly heavier and more “in your face” sound, Perfect Plan matured and created an outstanding balance of melodies and energy, with the obvious references to the sound of the classics (think Foreigner, Survivor, The Storm, Giant, etc.) and Scandinavian AOR with a recognizable and personal feel. So, after a stunning debut and sticking the landing with their second album, what does Perfect Plan have up their sleeve for an encore? Well, all we can say is..."Brace For Impact”! Tracklisting: 1. Surrender 2. If Love Walks In 3. Can’t Let You Win 4. Gotta Slow Me Down 5. Stop The Bleed 6. My Angel 7. Devil’s Got The Blues 8. Bring Me A Doctor 9. Still Undefeated 10. Emelie 11. Walk Through Fire Line-Up: Kent Hilli - Lead vocals Rolf Nordström - Guitar Leif Ehlin - Keyboards Fredrik Forsberg - Drums Mats Byström - Bass   https://perfectplan.se facebook        
    • Baton Rogue Morgue - Massacre of St. Valentine's Day. Great track despite the clunky chorus. Solid album.    
    • I've just posted this "Grim Reaper" retrospective in another thread, but it should be here as well.    
    • "Grim Reaper" features this time. I don't know if he had this one in the works, but it's a nice tribute.    
    • I would have put Animalize as the middle feature piece as the album cover looks the most "blanketty"
    • My favorite guitarist of all time Rock In Peace  Eddie 🎸 
    • The full album's on YouTube. 
    • I just listened to the album for the first time. Wow. Can't believe it took me so long to get to it. I think what happened was Andrew signed these guys and Degreed right around the same time, and I was just vibing with the Degreed sound so much more. Might have to track down the reissue. I wonder if he still has some copies.
