Last Autumn's Dream - 'Yes'

Recommended Posts

I know a lot of people probably don't acknowledge these guys much anymore, having constantly delivered an album per year over the most part of the last decade... might be a bit too much for some.

 

I enjoyed the last CD quite a bit more than their earlier work and having got the new one I couldn't help but notice how much influence Jamie Borger (drummer for Treat / Talisman etc.) has on the band's new CD. The majority of the songs are actually written by him. And whilst the new CD, 'Yes,' is certainly no 'Coup De Grace,' having that new presence in the band does liven things up a little. It's still very much a LAD CD, but I'm enjoying it. Anyone else (aside from Bernd) checked it out?

Yes is a good album, but A Touch of Heaven is better, but yes they still haven't manage to create anything new outside their boundaries, but why fix if it ain't broke, that's their motto i suppose :christmas:

Agreed that it is much the same as before, so fans of the previous stuff can pretty much buy blind. I do think this one is probably their best one yet though, with the songwriting a notch ot two more consistent than previously. Nice cover of Michael Bolton's fab 'Fools Game' to top it off.

My favorite cd from this band is for sure Dreamcatcher (2009). I really enjoyed -your kind of loving(so 80s so Europe),hold on to my heart and the last to know- in this album.

A touch of heaven was not at the same level (IMO), I bought it original but It didn't impressed me much.

From the new one I downloaded I've fallen into you, It doesn't do much for me. I know Jamie is a fine songwriter, but I will listen the whole thing before buy it.

It's very difficult withone album per year (there is also the SALUTE project) say something new, anyway I appreciate their passion.

    • That's actually a pretty cool song. Better than his previous bands for sure. I gotta agree with Auslander, though. Something a bit off-putting about those backing vocals. Some are nice, but particularly the ones at the start of the chorus are, as I said, "off-putting."  I've had lukewarm reactions to backing vocals in the past, though, and sometimes I get past it. Hopefully this is one of those occasions?
    • I have been summoned. #1 - plods along and goes absolutely nowhere. Sorry, no cup of seme- uh, tea. #2 - certainly a bit more lively that the first one. Not bad, but it's very, very basic stuff. Okay tune. #3 - yeah, sadly just not my thing. As weak as, if not weaker than the first track.  Sorry cob, I think it's going to have to be a pass from me.  
    • Yeah, I do agree and I don't want people to get me wrong. I'm not a defund the police type or anything like that. My respect for the police is at the lowest it has been in my entire life, but I hope it is something that can be restored in time... though the longer this all goes on, the less hope I have at all for a future worth looking forward to. But that's another story.  I do have some regard for police officers "just following orders" but I've seen and heard way too much to have too much sympathy. And I agree that it is the policy makers that I despise most of all, but I'd have liked to have seen some sort of resistance from the police in all of this. It's been my biggest issue through the whole thing. In the media, government and the police force, there are so few voices (and definitely no significant voices) opposing the ridiculous nature of what has happened over the last two years and is still ongoing.  I don't understand it all, but are the police part of the government, or is there some separation there? If you're given absolutely absurd rules to enforce, I would like to see opposition to it. And as I do with everything, I think what I would do in their situation. If I was a police officer, and I had a family to feed, what would I do? Would I stand outside a grocery store and fine a couple who removed their masks as they walked out the store? Sure as all fuckery, I would not. I've been asked by several officers throughout the last couple of years to put my mask on before a fine was issued, so I'm 100%, definitely not just painting all police with the same brush. I know there's exceptions to every rule. But for any officer who's first instinct was to fine for mask breaches, or insane area restrictions or any of the entirely petty, pathetic laws we've had to endure over the last couple of years, for them I have no respect whatsoever. Even if you're put in the terrible situation they've been put in, there's still a way you can handle it, and a lot of the ways I've seen and heard it handled is not something I can respect.  Anyway, I watched a cool video today. It's as if this guy took every thought I've had on the whole pandemic and said it in proper, intelligent words. If I wasn't as dumb as a wooden post these are the words I'd be saying-  
    • 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.
