Who'd have thought that a modern rock band could do this song justice and put a completely different spin on a classic. Stunning IMO! The harmonies in that chorus is KILLER.

I said in another thread that Safetysuit was the most exciting new album I saw, but I did see this and covers album or not - like Jim, I think this band is utterly brilliant and they could sing about raping animals and I'd still be interested. It kills me that their s/t album is already so impossibly expensive, but these guys are easily one of my favourite modern rock bands. Looking forward to this a lot.

 

Great cover too, Glen. Love it.

Well peck my penis with a pelican beak!!! What a relief, and great news. As much as I told myself that a covers album from these guys would appeal to me more than others... well, end of the day it's still a cover album and I can't pretend to care too much.

 

That new song sounds awesome! Like it'd sound any other way anyway, but I can't wait for this. Like I said above, these guys are one of the best, imo. Really love them. One nasty, nasty trend I am noticing is that their CDs are getting close to impossible to find. Just look at this garbage. $40 for a CD a couple of years old:

I don't know how to get a hard copy of that CD. :(

 

Anyway, can't wait for the new album. Very excited!!!

Okay, so I'm a dipshit. You can buy the s/t disc for $9.99 plus a reasonable shipping rate right here:

I almost bought it right then and there, but I'll wait for the pre-order and order both at the same time. :)

You can buy the new album now. Bought it today, along with the s/t one. Postage is ridiculous ($15.90 for 2 CDs to Australia - not sure what I was talking about above?) but I've looked for that s/t CD since it's release and I've seen it as high as $50 and over, so $36 overall for the 2 CDs will do me fine. :)

 

If you don't have any of the CDs, there is an awesome $40 package for all their CDs. Can't imagine what the postage on that is, but maybe worth checking out if you're absent of these guys in your collection.

Well, I gotta say after one spin that the new album is quite the disappointment. After the first 2 tracks you could be mistaken for thinking they might be delivering their best album yet. But man does it get ugly quick. It doesn't fully recover either until the last song, which is excellent too. There are moments inbetween, but not many, and some really bad songs.

 

I can only imagine that 'Birthday' was a pretty "big" song for them and they're trying to recapture that style? If you know that song you know it's f*cking amazing. It really is. Quirky verses indeed, but one of the coolest choruses they have ever written. A lot of the songs on this new CD have really awful "quirky" verses which they try to save with a typically commercial / hooky chorus, but it just doesn't work. I look forward to spinning it again and this band always deserves the effort, but this may be their worst yet, after such a great start. :(

 

On the positive side, I also got the s/t disc in the package, which is still awesome.

    • It's like how I apologise to the mechanics every time my car breaks down.
    • I reckon it's worth asking the question. 
    • I come in genuine curiosity, but this hospital argument... I'd like clarification. So originally we couldn't do anything because covid was going to kill everyone on earth. Then there was a vaccine and we couldn't do anything until we all got vaccinated. Now we're all vaccinated and the sole reason left that we're still living piece of shit lives is because we don't want to overload the hospitals? Is this the correct read on it? So, if this is true, we've resigned to the truth that is this is how the rest of our lives look? Masks, QR codes, crowd capacities, covid tests if we want to travel interstate, let alone international travel - then we need 87 tests and quarantine every time a new variant pops up, which will be fortnightly, or at the latest, monthly. This is it now, is it? Because if it's not, how does the end of it look? When will it be okay to live again without fear of clogging up the hospitals?  I can only speak for Australia on this part of it, but all we've ever heard about is stopping the strain on the hospitals, but has anyone ever seen it? Would anyone even consider overloaded hospitals as an issue if the media hadn't told us it was an issue? I ask as anyone I know who works in healthcare, and to an extent, even myself, as a medical courier who has worked every single day of the last two years... no one I know, or I, have ever seen any single even remote sign of all this strain on our health system. So, like the rest of this pandemic, is it just another media beat up? All they've done for two years straight is belt fear into us, so is it unreasonable to think this is just another branch from that tree? I'm just sick of daily excuses why our lives are still fucking horrible. Anytime the mere suggestion of return to a "normal" life gets brought up, there's a whole list of media-inspired reasons why we have to continue living in misery.  Anyway, I think that was about it. I'm just in eternal wonder about why we all had to get vaccinated when it hasn't actually changed anything about how covid is viewed and feared. Covid is viewed exactly as it was two years ago. It still governs every aspect of how we live, so all these promises about getting vaccinated so we could go back to a normal life were obviously all bullshit.  I was thinking about Australia's trajectory this morning. So if we keep up this pathetic excuse for an existence - the daily covid rate is around 1300 daily cases - let's call it 1500 daily cases if and when the other states open up. So if we continue on this trajectory, living in paralysed fear of the virus, acting like every case of covid is terminal cancer, we should get past this covid thing in about 15,333 days. So around 42 years. That, of course doesn't allow for population growth, but let's assume the cases go up with population growth proportionately.  So that's the outlook in Australia. In 42 years, we might finally move on from covid, based on our current trajectory? What a future to look forward to! Oh, actually, that doesn't include cases prior to today, so maybe we can get out of this thing in closer to 41 years? Life just got a whole lot brighter right then.    
    • Really nice album cover indeed...but ten for me this last while...yawn...as Jez pointed out they all sound the same,i'd have difficulty picking which track came from which album tbh
    • Yeah it starts off very good then tails off round midway...but the defs have potential and judging by the new tunes could fulfil it...fingers crossed
    • And mine still hasn't been sent...quality service right there  too late to get a refund? lol
    • Yeah Badd Boyz is very good,would be my fav of the three...I really like the Platinum Overdose albums but I know where you're coming from,I also prefer their more melodic/glammy/sleazy side to the metal type stuff
    • Here's what it was for me, I mostly voted on familiarity: 1. I'll be honest, I didn't know who either of these singers were.  Of the two I've only heard music from Harem Scarem so it was Hess for me 2. I like Coverdale's voice more than Tyler's 3. I voted Michaels since I've only heard a handful of Enuff Z'nuff songs and I listen to a lot of Poison.  With such a limited sample size this might change when I hear more Z'nuff but for right now it has to be Michaels 4. Haven't heard a lot of Mason so I voted Jani.  As far as I'm concerned Jani is the full package when it comes to singer-songwriters, he's an absolute Legend 5. Of all of these I feel like this is the least fair comparison, they don't sound even remotely alike to me.  While Pearcy isn't a phenomenal vocalist in the traditional sense, he's so much more distinct in my opinion.  I think Phil's voice could get lost in the shuffle, but when Pearcy sings you KNOW it's Pearcy which is arguably more important in some cases 6. Haven't heard Queensryche with La Torre, so Tate it is 7. Bon Jovi is my favorite band of all time, come at me 8. Same with Tate, I've only heard Great White with Russell so Russ it is 9. I like both versions of Danger Danger for different reasons, but I have to go with Poley for this one 10. Haven't heard anything from Heart I don't think, so Elliot all the way 11. Haven't heard much of Cold Sweat or Cathey, but I do love that first Lynch Mob album. Point Logan! 12. Once again had to look these guys up, but this time I've actually heard one full album from each.  I assumed Bulen was Keeling, but that aside this was probably the closest one for me.  Ended up going for Baton Rouge but if you asked me in a few weeks that might change We should do this again sometime, maybe with guitarists/drummers/bassists/etc?
