I wont hide the fact the fact that I loved their debut album.....chock full of excellent pop/rock hooks and melodies - the newie sounds like it might be even better!!

 

Both new songs sound great

Haha. It took me this long to finally track down a hard copy of their debut, but yeah, I'm with you mate. Excellent album and I personally cannot wait to hear a new one already. Both songs sound great, particularly 'Stay.' Can't wait.

Illuminate is a stunning album - even better than the debut.

 

Basically just mix the best parts of Safetysuit & Simple Plan.

 

Not a filler in sight on this - love it.

Never heard of them, but the above comparisons sound like my kinda thing. They're not like Destrophy are they?!

Tried to buy this now. Good price if I can find something else to buy here:

Anyone got a cheaper place to buy it?

Yep, sounds pretty tight. I might have to add this to the list.

OK, this album has inspired me to my first summary of the year.

 

The debut (which seems to have passed by everyone on this board bar Geoff) was pretty awesome...virtually every track was a winner...perfectly crafted pop/rock with great hooks and melodies....so it was always going to tough to top that album, but with 'Illuminate' I think they might have done just that -

 

1. Four Leaf Clover - (9) - perfect opener. Big hook. Sounds like Simple Plan at their best

2. Stay - (9.25) - even better...continuing the huge melody and hooklines...great pop/rock

3. All The People - (8) - atmospheric track - to be honest this would be a hit in the UK if the masses heard it, but lacks a killer hook imo.

4. Wait Forever - (10) - difficult to know how a modern rock track can sound any better than this? Amazing hook

5. Thousand Miles - (8.5) - another cool rocker, nice chorus and harmonies

6. Unbreakable - (9.5) - awesome rocker. Great hook. Sounds almost like a more melodic version of Story Of The Year!

7. Night Skies - (8.5) - pleasant track with a smooth melody - another winner

8. Best Kept Secret - (9.25) - starts out acoustic, then full sound comes in, by chorus 2 you are treated to some glorious harmonies. Love it

9. The Awakening - (9) - another very Simple Planish song. Vey good too, with yet another excellent chorus.

10. Illuminate - (10) - amazing atmospheric track. If there was any justice in the world this would be booming out across every festival in the land and then Leona Lewis would cover it and make them all millionaires! lol

 

Overall : 91%

 

One of my highest scores so far this year :-)

I haven't got my copy yet, but am getting a bit irritated waiting for it to be delivered! I would definitely given the title-track a 10...

My balls too have shriveled to the size antelopes in anticipation for this one. Really can't wait to hear this. I agree with Glen that the debut is fantastic, so if this is as good or even better I MUST hear it. :)

Got my copy last week, ordered it new from an amazon seller (who turned out was in Portugal) and it arrived within the week. 'Illuminate' the best track on the album and one of the best songs I have heard this year so far.

Something that gets Geoff this wound up must be worth picking up. On a side not, Geoffery, how big-a-balls do antelopes have, and why do you know this? I thought Matty-boo was into the bestiality shit.

This rating is only going north, cos for the past day ive been singing 'Thousand Miles' which I initially thought was a slightly weaker track, but actually has one of the best hooks.

This is crazy and frikkin' melodically awesome, I think this is even better than the new HEAT and Safetysuit, anyone on the same boat here? ain't no filler spotted, could finish the top fivers, still early but definitely should be in the top ten!

 

'Stay', 'Wait Forever', 'Thousand Miles', 'Unbreakable', and 'Illuminate' are possibly the upper cards here

need to buy this asap but damn, why so many good albums are so hard to buy ? :(

Mr N (what is your name by the way??), you should get the debut at the same time as it is as good IMO.

 

Not sure this will top HEAT but it is very good :-))
