well yeah it's time to capitalize the reunion culture before everything's too late, great news!

now probably next year news are Harem Scarem back in action again, and probably Scorpions cancelling farewell and back for another album :guitbannana:

 

roll on 2012 for a new release, and gotta do it fast before the 'new grunge' sweeping in 2014-2015 and kill everything in sight :christmas:

YES! Psych. I seriously don't care, but that said I do hope that they do record a great album. And for that to truly happen, I hope Peterik stays away. :lol: Seriously, I'd just prefer the project to go forth without him and see the results.

I guess you're into experimenting but ya know JP's written most of Survivor's hits...... I just feel Survivor wouldn't be the band it is without JP.

I can't honestly imagine JP rejoining Survivor given the fact 2012 is supposed to have a new Pride Of Lions album & along with it some decent amount of touring.

It's hard to fathom the two bands going at once, one must give. Then again I'm hoping for both bands to be on the go.

I'm really hoping JP will rejoin Survivor.

Yeah pretty weird comment really given that JP wrote virtually every Survivor song. I doubt he will join to be honest - personally I'm more excited about Jimi's new solo album which has been written by Erik Martensson!!

Erik's hard hitting brand of mhr may not be ideal for JJ......... then again I'm happy to wait & see what'll come out.

I didn't think much of Toby Hitcock's album, no disrecpect to Erik but... I felt Toby's voice wasn't all right on those songs.

Well I thought he sounded great & that album is pretty much melodic hard rock perfection for me :-)

 

Do you really think that EM will produce songs heavier than those on THTS?? Jimi sounds perfect on that album - still my fav Survivor album!

EM's mega talented, never the less, I'd be keen on hearing how JJ goes in a heavier direction if its the case.

Seeing JJ both times at Firefest was fantastic, I'd love to have heard a few tunes on the heavier side just to mix up the set list & hopefully EM could be coming through with those :)

So am I mate. Martensson is the best songwriter on the MHR scene IMO...

Peterik may have written most of Survivor's hits - even though the only ones I really care about are from 'Too hot to sleep' - but you're only as good as your last pug petting session, and Peterik's last about 5 albums have been utterly disgusting. My anus could write better songs than the last POL disc, or his *shudder* solo album. If he could ever write a decent song, I think he's shown he certainly can't anymore. :)

Wow, talk about unexciting news. With Martensson involved I can safely say I won't buy it, or even listen to it. The guy writes some of the most uninspired and dull melodic rock I've ever heard and I can't imagine him coming up with something decent for Jamison either. We'll just have another "Mercury's Down" on our hands, an OK record, but please aren't there other songwriters out there???

Opposite for me. If it was just another Jamison album I'd be as interested as I'd be in getting my nuts waxed by an angle grinder. But with Martensson involved you already know that, regardless of what happens, this is going to be - by far - Jamison's best ever album, with the best songs he's ever sung (maybe only second to the Kimball one... haven't heard that as yet but hoping for good things). ;) I only hope he gets someone else to do the production after he does everything else. :)

Again!! The last 'comeback' disc with Jamison didn't exactly set the world on fire and everyone, except Sullivan, seems to be doing very well thankyou with their other numerous projects etc. I really think it is time to leave the Survivor name alone now and leave it to some of the new boys to keep the flag flying.

    • Atlantis is amazing 👏  Was my album of that year 
    • A lot to like on this release but also some stuff just too light for me. 
    • What a honey Gudrun Laos was and what a Killer track this is!    
    • I didn't say I didn't like it. It's a good album, but I guess after years of reading folks praise for it I built it up to be something more than it actually was. 
    • We already know you're a leftist idiot! Known all around these parts!
    • How are you guys letting horrible songs get into your head???
    • I'm surprised you didn't like it. That's a shame. 
    • It's a mystery alright, although how the band could okay this for release is an even bigger mystery. Also find it intresting that all of the reviews I've read have failed to mention the bizarre mixing and mastering of this record, which kinda makes you question their credibility as rock reviewers.   This I don't agree with at all. The thing that makes H.E.A.T the awesome band that they are is that they've never compromised with their sound or felt the urge to follow trends. We all know that they've could have gone the Dynazty route, making hard 'n' heavy records, that would probably have made them an even bigger and more popular band with the masses. Of course that's not what the fans want, and they know that. We want H.E.A.T to sound like H.E.A.T - and I think they've done a damn fine job of that on this record. I don't mind a bit of experimentation, like on Demon Eyes, as long as it's the exception and a temporarily deviation from the trademark sound. As for bangers, I do think there are some here, but they're all ruined to some degree by the poor mixing job. No, they don't reach the awesomeness of let's say "Dangerous Ground" or "Rock Your Body" from the last album, but stuff like "Nationwide", "Not For Sale", "Hold Your Fire" and "Wings Of An Aeroplane" come pretty damn close. Being the AOR fanatic I am, my main criticism with this band is always that I want them to be more AOR, like on the first 2-3 records. If you're looking for a direction, then this record is clearly a distinctive step away from that. They want to be pure melodic hard rock and not AOR, I think it's pretty clear. Truthfully it's been evident from "Tearing Down The Walls" and onward, but Force Majeure makes it even more evident that no change in that direction is very probable.   If there's anything that this album doesn't lack, it's guitars. The guitars are so loud in the mix that Kenny´s vocals are drowning in them. The album is unlistenable with good headphones, you have to play it through speakers or earphones to make it somewhat listenable. Other weird little things about this record: CD is released in Europe as a f*cking digipak for some reason. Who's beind this strange and unnecessary decision, the band or the label? Also, no writing credits. You have to go to Discogs or Spotify to find out who wrote these tunes.
