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.

 

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.

 

I can understand disappointment because if you're being realistic it's really not comparable to the first 2 albums at all. They simply just don't sound like the band they were back then. Like I said, to me they sound like a mid-90's indie band trying to sound like Trixter.

 

That said, if you just take the album at face value and don't compare it to the first two (which is admittedly hard) it's a fun hard rock disc. Like I also mentioned, the above tunes are the only two really weak songs, but the rest is all worthwhile enough, with a few crackers in the mix. I actually think a beefy production job would have done this thing the world of good too.

Fair enough, mate, but where was that logic when Van Halen's newie was being discussed? ;)

 

I think 'Physical Attraction' is better than anything on the Van Halen CD and only 'Get it on' is as bad as a lot of the Van Halen CD. The rest of the Trixter CD, imo of course, is far superior to the garbage Van Halen got away with this year. In my opinion. :)

I dont ever recall supporting the Van Halen album........there were 3 or 4 very good songs and although the musianship was pretty awesome that hardly makes for a good album if the songs arent there. I wouldnt have rated the album as whole much above 50% if I owned it (which I dont)....comparing any album with the new Van Halen as an argument to suggest its good is not a wise idea.

Now that's more like the G-Scallop I know! I wish you'd been singing that melody from the start, mate, as I recall much nicer words towards this release back when discussions were taking place. Anyway, not to worry. I'm glad you see it for the piece of shit it is, just disappointed it took a while. Hopefully Tim's seen the light too and we can go back to normal in agreeing that terrible music is terrible music. ;)

Which one are you talking about? Trixter? Yep it's mostly shit IMO. Van Halen? Horribly patchy but a few redeeming songs and great guitar. Still not great though. Neither are worth much air-time frankly when there are much better discs around...

Haha... definitely talking about Van Halen. I'll persist that the Trixter disc is certainly a disappointment in comparison to their first two, but it's really not that bad a disc at all. And it does have 3 really super songs on it.

Other than "Tattoos..." mine doesn't have any other great songs, so you must have a version with 2 extra songs on. :)

You should seek out the version with 'Coolest thing' (cheesy lyrics but awesome song) and 'Walk with a stranger.' Trust me, you'll be glad you did. ;)

 

Okay, so am I the only poof who didn't know that 'Walk with a stranger' is actually a cover of an old Skid Row tune from 1986? No wonder it rules.

    • Sounds good to me. He hit some cool notes I wasn't expecting. 
    • No mention of the music video? Or are you still fapping your way through it? ;}
    • I saw them in 2003 at a festival and I thought they were very good. 
    • From Frontiers: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to present the fourth installment of Magnus Karlsson's Free Fall, "Hunt The Flame". Once again, the multi-talented Swedish guitarist/songwriter/producer has assembled a killer cast of incredible lead vocalists to lend their talents to his musical vision.  For “Hunt The Flame”, Magnus once again enlisted some of the strongest melodic singers in metal and hard rock. Stunning performances are provided, in order of appearance, courtesy of Alexander Strandell (Art Nation, Crowne), Jakob Samuel (The Poodles), James Durbin (Durbin, Cleanbreak), Kristian Fyhr (Seventh Crystal, Ginevra), James Robledo (Sinner's Blood), Michael Eriksen (Circus Maximus), Girish Pradhan (Girish And The Chronicles), Raphael Mendes (Icon Of Sin), Terje Haroy (Pryamaze, Mantric Momentum), Jake E (Cyhra), and Antti Railion (Celesty, Diecell, The Wildfire).Rounding out the line-up on the album is Anders Kollerfors on drums with Magnus Karlsson handling all other instrumentation on this stunning slab of melodic metal.  Magnus Karlsson is well known as the mastermind behind several productions associated with Frontiers Music Srl, including the successful initial Allen/Lande (Russell Allen and Jorn Lande)trilogy and the recent spin-off, Allen/Olzon (Russell Allen and Anette Olzon), which has released two albums thus far. Additionally, releases by Starbreaker (with Tony Harnell), Bob Catley, and Kiske/Somerville have been guided by his talented hand. In 2008, he joined German heavy metal icons Primal Fear and with them has toured the world and recorded several successful albums which charted in multiple countries around the globe. In 2013, he launched his solo project “Free Fall” which was warmly received by the numerous fans of the Swedish mastermind and showcased Magnus’ songwriting and production skills with lead vocals provided by a varied cast of some of the finest singers of the genre on each release.  Tracklisting: 1. Hunt The Flame ft. Alexander Strandell 2. You Can't Hurt Me Anymore ft. Jakob Samuel 3. Thunder Calls ft. James Durbin 4. Break Of Dawn ft. Kristian Fyhr 5. Far From Home ft. James Robledo 6.

Summoning The Stars ft. Antti Railion Line-Up: Magnus Karlsson - Guitars, Bass, Keyboard And Vocals Anders Köllerfors - Drums    
    • Ok, I get it now. Classic style band/song names like Nightfire, becomes Nitefire nowadays.
    • That's what annoys me about Grand Design song titles: rock being spelt as 'rawk,' but also 'tuff,' 'luv,' 'nite,' etc.
    • Now we're talking! A great, fully understandable band name and cool cover art to match it.
    • As some sort of artist myself maybe I shouldn't be commenting but why do they misspell rock to rawk? Is that in fashion now or?
    • I'm digging this... first I've ever heard of them. Is it just me or does the lead vocalist's timbre sound a lot like Robin Gibb?
    • Just yesterday this guy said to me, "I'm taking my son to his first concert!" I'm like, "Oh, yeah? Who are you seeing?" "Red Hot Chili Peppers!" And I just turned and walked away. Thinking about it now, I guess that was pretty rude, but I had no interest in talking about them. Haha.
