Heard OF it but haven't heard anything from it.

That is one heck of a list of guest-stars, though. Makes me wonder if there was any room left for the actual band members to play on the album? :)

Not heard it either. What type of music is it? Based on the cover and guest list I get a vibe it could be 70's influenced type of music? Is this correct?

amazon.co.uk has samples you can play of all the songs.

I doubt other countries can download the MP3s, but dont think there are restrictions on listening to the samples.

I've owned, and sold, almost their entire discography (back when I was just re-discovering melodic hard rock- yes, I did buy rather indiscriminately at first, much smarter now ;p ), and, I really hate to say this b/c I almost always keep my commentary positive, feel a bit worse for the wear. Their albums vascillate b/t poorly played (IMHO) 70s era prog. rock, straight ahead hard rock w.o. even the whiff of a hook (occasionally a pleasant melody or two comes along and surprises), and even some almost unlistenable, for lack of a better way to describe, rockabilly/folk influenced stuff. Vox. are VERY heavily accented, but do exhibit a nice range at times. Looking back, I guess I can appreciate their desire for creativity and variation and, to their credit, they recorded a pretty cool duet (ballad) w/Kelly Keeling titled "Soldiers Song" or something like that....But one song couldn't convince me to keep the CD.

 

Basically, this newest album contains a selection of their older songs performed by "all star" vocalists. It is, by far, their ONLY CD worth even contemplating a purchase IMHO. To my ear, after listening to sound clips, Jeff Scott Soto REALLY adds a ton of energy to the song he performs vs. the original, both Billy Gibbons tracks piqued my interest, and Jorn Lande turned a dreadfully dreary song about heroin into a solid mid-tempo rocker. I'll pass on the Glenn Hughes and Paul Stanley tracks, and Dan McCaferty wasn't given much to work with. This is all just my opinion, maybe others here will enjoy this band a whiole lot more than I...if so, gr8!

Thanks for the insight, mate. Based on your commentary here and the review at Sleazeroxx, I think I'll actually avoid this altogether. Doesn't even sound like it's worth giving a test run. :lol:

    • It is definitely flashdance. I can't unhear it now.
    • Everyone I have spoken to from cities are shitting themselves over this Omricon variant. I say to them "don't you want things to go back to normal?". But they really don't. They are loving living in a police state. I have spoken to a number of ex-prisoners as well who have similar thoughts about jail. I think a lot of people are wired to like having freedom and choice taken away from them. They enjoy having fewer options. It is bizarre to me.
    • the first song wasn't the clip I heard - this sound more promising to me https://www.facebook.com/100764135031478/posts/426269785814243/  
    • mmmm. Erik great, verses great, solo typical but still good, chorus suspect.  Am I the only one who hears Flashdance in the chorus 🤔 🤣🤣🤣
    • I am not here to convince any of you the Way. I believe everyone has the means and now makes their choice as per free will. Yet , isn't it amusing (well it is to me) how fundamentalist atheists are in their certainty. And I guess that is why you are so intolerant to other beliefs. There is no room for doubt in your minds. You feel you know all the answers and that there are no mysteries outside of your understanding. Though you are just a speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant and then believing that is the entire knowledge of the elephant. Good luck with that. 
    • Yeah, I mean that's a fair call. This is what people originally were concerned about and it's gradually happened and not many people have really noticed or cared. Tracking everyone everywhere they go. (if you scan in  )
    • I think generally that this new "threat" is being taken with a grain of salt. I'd like to think so anyway. Regardless, by the time we all say ENOUGH, the new powers put in place by ALL Governments and new "digital ID's" and tracking apps will be well established.  Well played, the powers that be, well played. 
    • New video for ”Lost In The Night”.    
    • I had a couple of videos recommended on youtube today so I looked at them. One was an interview with the doctor in South Africa who "discovered" and diagnosed the new variant, and she spent the entire interview saying how mild it was, and that the patients hadn't even actually shown any symptoms with the variant. The other video I watched was a mainstream, panic-endorsed media interview with two "top doctors" who both said that if this variant is as mild as suggested it is actually better to let it spread and become the dominant strain of covid.  The problem is, that around these two things, as soon as the hosts/reporters start talking, they're back in full panic mode, asking if borders should be shut, countries locked and doing their best and hardest to make sure that panic and hysteria is returned as soon as humanly possible.  So I want to know when a law can be passed where people in public positions that spread panic can be shot on the spot. That's my ideal wish, but in the real world of 2021, when are these panic merchants going to be stood down from their positions? It seems like this new variant is absolutely nothing at all that anyone anywhere should be worried about, and if you believe the "top doctors," spreading it should be embraced. So how does this whole panic hysteria storm get whipped up in the space of a few days? And why aren't people being held accountable for whipping up this madness and stopping actual life from ever continuing again?   For anyone interested, the two clips I saw were these-
