my worry is this will be the best song.

 

Be interested to hear thoughts on this as the samples did very little for me.

 

It is the best song. The acoustic bonus track is probably the 2nd best song. Says it all.

I think I saw someone say this was on Spotify so will check there before parting with cash.

Ok, am I in the minority here? This song does pretty much nothing for me. It sounds too happy crappy...like if Gin Blossoms and Nickelback went into the studio and said, let's make a song for pop radio but try to make it rock just a little. Another comparison could be the recent Bon Jovi releases...though I should not say that because I can't listen to them all the way through.

I think it's a pretty good cd. It really doesn't sound a whole lot like Trixter on most of the songs. It has a modern influence in it but also returns to the melodic hard rock of old. There are some really good tunes on this and it will require several listens before I can determine my favorites. Definitely a kickass disc.

I actually kinda like that tune.. I wonder if Keef does?? After all they ARE from His Hometown..... :tumbsup:

 

Meh, it's a'ight.

 

Some of my former Paramus High classmates are having Ear-gasms about it all over Facebook by the way.

Yeah, pretty much. And it's a shit video, too. Can we all agree on that?

I'm enjoying this, but here's a few current thoughts:

 

Why are people hassling 'Physical attraction' when 'Get on it' almost destroys the CD 2 tracks in? 'Physical attraction' is weak but 'Get it on' is the epitome of a filler - something you'd expect to hear on a Van Halen CD. I could do without both these songs and this would be stronger as a 10 track CD.

 

This, to me, sounds like a mid 90's indie hard rock band sounding like Trixter. They don't quite have the songs of the real Trixter, but they put up a valid attempt. Stuff like 'Machine' and Ride' are growing on me, there's 3 excellent tracks ('Tatoos and misery,' 'Coolest thing' and 'Walk with a stranger') and a bunch of pretty cool, fun rockers.

The first 3 songs are all shit IMO. This album would've been better as an EP, with "Tattoos & Misery" and a couple of others, and the rest canned permanently.

What, you don't like track 2 ?????? really???? I've gotta say that one is nowhere near the company of Physical Attraction to these ears.

 

Are we both talking about 'Get On It?' Such a blatant filler to me and I could see it no differently.

Have to agree...there are about 3 or 4 songs on this worth keeping

 

Got to be one of the big disappointments of the year.

I don't mind Get it On but it's probably the second worst song after Physical Attraction IMO. Dirty Love is my fav and really I like them all and it's hard for me to believe more around her don't think this is better.

    • For some reason the first song's melody reminds me so much of Last Christmas by Wham.
    • From Escape Music: Bite The Bullet were originally formed in 1986 by singer songwriter Mick Benton and drummer Graham Cowling. They met in 1984 when they both joined West London rock band “Mother’s Ruin”. Thanks to the legendary Greg Lake, Benton managed to secure a solo deal with Atlantic Records and he asked Cowling to play drums. Its good to see that their collaboration is still strong to this very day. In 1986 “Bite the Bullet” were formed and the music played was in the style of Foreigner, Toto and Mr. Mister, an album was released in 1989 to some quiet success. The music was warmly received and the band earned themselves some radio airplay. However, britpop was coming into the forefront and a cancelled support slot with the mighty ELO saw the band disheartened and whilst they never really disbanded there was a long period of inactivity. Benton and Cowling always remained friends and they still played in pubs and clubs over the years which brings is up to 2019 when their debut was reissued on CD. It ignited a flame in the two men and brought the original recording back to the forefront again and old fans reappraised the album whilst new fans joined in. In January 2021 the year started with “Black and White” (ESM349) and the band have gone from strength to strength. They combine Mr Mister with Asia to produce a nice smooth rock pop sound. Mick and Graham Have continued writing new material and here we are with an exciting new third release “End of the Line” and the result is amazing; the new songs have given the band a new fresh sound, bringing us into 2022. What a way to start the new year!   Release Date: 21 Jan, 2022  Catalogue no: ESM361  1 Quicksand 4:20  2 Over You 4:26  3 End of the line 3:49  4 Cold Wind 3:45 5 Roundabout 4:20  6 Lost for Words 4:12  7 September Sun 4:03  8 Band of Brothers 4:35  9 Let it Go 3:56  10 Camaraderie 5:02  11 Base Jumping 4:11  12 Sunflowers and Roses 4:08 Line up Mick Benton – Lead Vocals, Guitar, Bass, Keyboards Graham Cowling – Drums Malcolm Jones – Guitar  
    • New song 'Fearless'.    
    • Feel The Steel - Steel Panther
    • In My Darkest Hour - Megadeth
    • Yeah sounding not too bad at all.
    • Yeah, I'll wanna hear the songs in full before I pass judgement, but this could be good. 
    • That's a good point I hadn't thought of. Of course the hospitals are going to treat whoever comes in because it's the right thing to do.  Hospitals don't turn away people that make stupid choices.  I guess what I was saying above was really that it's just hypocritical for somebody who is unvaccinated, gets COVID and then heads to the hospital for treatment.  You didn't trust science and medicine enough to take the vaccine but now you want medicine and science to save you?   Insurance is probably a whole different issue and yes, that's out of control in addition to the whole medical billing system.  Those are issues for another thread
