My wife said that most of the hard rock CDs that I play sound the same. But when she heard Battle Cries blasting in our CD player, she hummed along the melodies.

Man, I need to find a woman that will sing along to my hard rock music, and not just Bon Jovi or the other lame shit.

The Brave: "Battle Cries" is hands-down my favorite Christian hard rock album of all time!!!!

Yeah, what he said. The album is awesome beyond words. "If That Ain't Love" and "Tears of a Broken Heart" to this day remain two of my all-time favorite Christian rock songs.

Also a woman who will let you drop her off in the mall so you can take off and go to your favorite CD store for 3 hours. Also, will give you a Megadeth Concert DVD for Christmas. That's my wife.

You bastard! I don't have a CD store worth spending 3hrs in. You guys have no idea how much I envy your ability to take a short trip to a nice little music shop.

I am not exaggerating that "3 Hours" with that record store that I go to in Calgary. That shop has walls and walls of CDs - from ceiling to floor. They have step ladders that customers can use but still not tall enough. And you have to be on your knees to have a look on those that are near the floor. Last time I was there, I spent 3 hours and I haven't had a good look at the Metal CD Wall because I spend all of my time at the POP/ROCK section (where I got my Daddy Dynamite). What more with the Christian Artists Wall, I'm sure I can find some christian hard rock/AOR artist there (a quick look - I saw some Petra CDs). Also, they have a good collection of VHS tapes, Soundtrack CDs (until now I haven't spend time on), and tapes. This is a far cry from the shops in Edmonton where most shops specializes in hip eclectic music. In my 3 years of visiting that city, I can only count by hand the CDs that I got from there.

Maybe there is a reason to visit Calgary.

Yeah, the debut was on my want list for about a decade after a cruel tease at a Cash Converters once. About a decade ago I had the CD case in my hands and was about to buy the CD for about $6. And this has only happened 2 or 3 times in my life, but I took it to the counter and sure enough they could not find the CD anywhere. C*nts. Anyway, just recently I got sick of waiting and put down about us$25 at Amazon and added it to my collection. Needless to say, killer disc. Haven't heard it for ages, but I wasn't a huge fan of 'Trust.'

I'm still having a hard time accepting the fact that you paid $25 for a CD. What is this world coming to?!!

And you're right, Karpetface, that is officially one of the most expensive CDs I have ever bought in my life.

Yeah, this CD is worth it. Thankfully the amazing continued strength of the Aussie dollar has lessened the impact of these types of purchases 100% too. :)

That must be nice. After the recent crash our dollar has just dropped. Our CAD had been stronger than the USD, which made online shopping a lot less stressful, but now it's below, again. Oh, well, I assume it will climb back up. At least it'll always be stronger than your Aussie dollar. :D

The first album is amazing.

Funny thing, a couple of years ago I put all my cd's on a hard drive, so all my cd's are now stacked away, and I play all my music through an AppleTV.

I used iTunes to digitalize my cd's, but when I submitted The Brave, iTunes recognized it as another cd, I figured then that I would alter it later on.

Now I can't remember what 'false name' it's listed under, so I haven't heard it in years, anyway, great cd though, "Tears of a Broken Heart" is awesome.

    • Ya, when I saw the teaser on fuckbook, I was shocked…such a great surprise.  Hope it’s a great song!
    • Not stellar, but candidly waaaay better than I was expecting.
    • Not going to disagree with this. They've really not changed their sound much across their discography. Either you like it or you don't.
    • New single 'Apocalypse Blues' out tomorrow    
    • Not quite sure about this one. The new (?) songs are good and the re-works of the 'Riot Avenue' songs do sound better than the originals (there is a but coming). 'Sword And Stone' is okay but should have been left in Bonfire's very capable hands. This version pales significantly compared to that one.  Anyway, I guess the idea of the re-recordings is decent here. For the most part the production sounds better, but, there's a problem. And without being a sound guru, I'm not sure exactly what it is. There is what I believe is an issue with the treble area in the final sound, most noticeable in the first song. I don't know the exact way to explain this stuff, but the best way to describe it is that it sounds like a well produced album, at a really low bitrate. Instead of 320kbps it just sounds like it's coming through the speakers at 64kbps... even at a high bitrate. Irritating and something I can't shake, but there's good bits to it too.    
    • I loved this dude's first two post-Idol albums. It's pure pop rock, but I still absolutely love songs such as this; Sadly, for me, everything since those first two albums has been some kind of variation of a train wreck. The Quiet Riot stuff was a mess and this type of metal he's churning out now - I regret to say - is just painful to my ears. Lyrically, he may as well be singing about pasta on train tracks with a side of tree branch for all I can connect with it. Musically I find it really boring, and lyrically it's even worse.  I've actually got the hard copies of first two CDs in my garage but it's too much hassle to go look for them. I can't remember if he wrote or at least co-wrote a lot of the stuff on those two albums, but either way it definitely sounded like the songs at least meant something to him. I'd like to hear that again rather than him trying this metal thing which really doesn't seem to suit him. If he's passionate about it, sure, go for it. I'd love to hear him doing something heavy (and good)... but with songs that actually sound like they mean something to him. This new album sounds like trash to me, I hate to say. He's undoubtedly had a very interesting life post-Idol. I'd much rather hear about that in songs rather than dragons eating reapers in balls of fiery metal or whatever shit is on this album. 
    • Pretty true to their sound so many years into their career. Definitely sounds like HS; no doubt about that. 'Broken' is my favourite song from here... nice tune. Most of the rest is all pretty good to solid too. Admirable effort. 
    • Probably wouldn't have bothered to check this out if I'd not heard an interview with Ace where they spoke about the fact that Steve Brown of Trixter fame co-wrote and produced the album. And it does sound good, production-wise. And the songs are a bit better than I expected. Stand out track is the simple but nice 'Back Into My Arms Again.'  The but? For me, it's the vocals. He is not a good singer... quite a bad one, in fact, and it affects the songs poorly, for me. Which is not to say they're all great otherwise. But some are okay. I wish they'd used Steve for the vocals... 
    • Ok even more clues. Carl's best friend the boy who cried ... and hallowed be thy name.
    • Nope you will kick yourself when it is guessed.
