I love both of these almost equally but I'd say my fav might be High Gear but I change my mind dependent upon which one I'm listening to at the time. High Gear was album of the year for 2009 and I expect Optimism to be in my top 2 or 3 for 2011.

 

Fav songs are "Have It All" from High Gear - Pete's solo takes this one to another level plus it was the first FarCry song I heard so will always be my fav. I dig the Chasing Magic version of this song(Jace wrote it) but FarCry put their own stamp on this tune making it their own just as do with "Fine Line". The only tune I never cared much for from High Gear is "Nowhere Fast".

 

Fav song from Optimism would be "Now That It's Over". I just love the intensity of this one and the lyrics from Mark are great as well. So many other great tunes on this one like "Best of Me", "Light Go Down", "Free", "Too Hot To Hold", "Better Than This" and "Nothing you could do". The only tune I'm not crazy about is "Love At First Sight". To me that tune seems out of place.

 

 

For those that don't have one of these albums and you love Melodic Hard Rock(of course you do or you wouldn't be on this site) go out and buy these like now.

Yeah, 2 very good albums. I'd rate 'High Gear' as my favourite too. If I had to list my top 5 favourite Farcry songs I think they'd all come from 'High Gear';

 

1. Same Mistake

2. Fine Line

3. Heaven

4. Love won't wait

 

Next one could be any one of these:

 

Talk to me

Those were the days

Over and over again

Better than this

Best of me

 

But yeah, overall I think I'd lean towards the debut for my fave. :)

 

There's a poll now. I missed it first time 'round:

 

1. High Gear

2. Same Mistake

3. Best Of Me

I went with Optimism by a hair over High Gear (love both album covers btw). Fav track on High Gear is "Fine Line". Fav track on Optimism is "Now That It's Over". That track originally didn't jump out at me but I had the cd playing one afternoon while cleaning out the garage and that song came on and I was like damn, that's a kickass tune!. :beerbang:

Only five votes so far? WTF?

I would of assumed that most members of this board had both of these discs.

Actually I voted twice so there's only 4 votes... :whistle:

 

:lol:

"Out of Reach" and "Now That It's Over" were my fave songs (off the respective albums). I thought they cranked-it-up on the second disc, and am kinda surprised to hear people say they preferred the first one. The solo-ing was much more awesome on the follow-up too. Personal taste dictated I love their more AOR-type tunes so an album full of those would be nice please?

The albums are almost even for me but I guess since I've lived with the debut for two plus years I prefer that one for now but I change my mind every time I spin the new one. I prefer when they get a little heavier as my picks show with Have it All and Now That It's Over but outside of Love At First Sight and Nowhere Fast I love all of their songs.

    • The Aussies right, this is against the rules, this is a no crossover thread
    • C'mon Doggy. We've been over this. Posts in this thread must be of a certain standard.
    • No he can push all he wants, he can bitch and fight and argue, and say the most insane liberal shit he can think of, but first this morning I had to fucking hear it from Karisa, then I get on here to escape her and Glens being a disrespectful motherfucker, we can talk shit, and insult each other, and clown and make fun, and be mean as we want, but when you start talking to me like im a fucking punk then my attitude will follow suit, Ive gone above and beyond to treat HH community with respect and I am about as laid back as your going to find me on here, but if we are gonna be mean, then just get it out in the open, cause I got zero problem with mean, but dont think for a second im not gonna be mean back, theres a huge line between trolling and talking to someone like their a bitch, trust me I know, I do both daily, this is the last im going to say about this, this is my position, so laugh it up, make your jokes, talk your shit, then drop it, fuckin liberals, lol
    • What is the new Covid variant and why is it a concern? Scientists have detected a new Covid-19 variant called B.1.1.529 and are working to understand its potential implications. About 100 confirmed cases have been identified in South Africa, Hong Kong, Israel and Botswana.   B.1.1.529 has a very unusual constellation of mutations, which are worrying because they could help it evade the body’s immune response and make it more transmissible, scientists have said. Any new variant that is able to evade vaccines or spread faster than the now-dominant Delta variant may pose a significant threat as the world emerges from the pandemic. Dr Susan Hopkins, the chief medical adviser to the UK Health Security Agency, said the R value, or effective reproduction number, of the B.1.1.529 variant in the South African province of Gauteng, where it was first found, was now 2 – a level of transmission not recorded since the beginning of the pandemic, before restrictions began to be imposed. For an R of anything above 1, an epidemic will grow exponentially.
    • Now kids... fight nice. This is the Flamefest section, so there's a bit more latitude here than in other areas. I think Glen is deliberately pushing your buttons, i.e., trolling you... especially since he "couldn't care less about U.S. politics"... *ahem*. He know he can push you into a rant. Don't fall for it. Ignore him like most of the rest of the people here do.
    • While I'm in the atheist camp I do not have a problem with most of the people who have faith in God....to each their own...as for Xmas , it is a holiday and should be about family and if religion is a necessary part of it for you, then so be it.....
