Wow what a fantastic debut! Features Tony Niva (Ex Lions Share) on vocals! Reminds me of cross between Shawn Pelata (Line Of Fire / Talon), and Tony Harnell (ex TNT) on this album! HIGHLY recommended for fans of Melodic Hard Rock!

Sounds more to me like scandi AOR e.g., Grand Illusion.

 

Excellent stuff!

Thanks Dan. Sounds good. Not a wild fan of the vocals, but the songs sound pretty sweet.

This disc wow-ed me right from the start, I think Dan's right, this is pretty much Scandi-AOR, probably more in the line of Final Frontier but without the alien/spacey vocal of Rob Moratti :)

 

'Janitor of Love', what a lousy pick of title but man that's one hell of a song, love it !

I guess everything is enjoyable here, I don't see no bad track, perhaps the title track which has average verse, but then the chorus is pretty good. Winners are that Janitor thing, 'When Tomorrow Never Comes', 'I Remember' which is quite slow and a bit sappy ballad but felt grand which is a good thing, 'We Must Fight' is awesome, and 'I Wanna Know For Sure' sounds fantastic !

'Best Days of Our Lives' is also very good, well one spin is just not enough, need to get back asap, but I think this belongs in the higher territory, perhaps 85%-90%

Is the title track not as bad as the worst song you've heard all hear? Funny that both these guys and Estrella have made what are 2 of the worst songs I've heard this year - both title tracks.

 

Nice enough album, that would have rated higher if not for that title track. Ended up with a respectable 68% but probably deserved to be in the early to mid 70's if they hadn't blemished it with that rubbish title track.

    • How did I not think of this one?! Brilliant album and the project just tanked afterwards...
    • I don't. Hate it with a passion. Even that is so 1986. Retire Tesla please. You are an embarrassment now.

Rattle The Cage  4:42 Band members: David Shaw - lead vocals, bass George Giannoulis - lead guitar, vocals Alex Rude - guitar, vocals Erik Fehrenbach - drums, vocals Produced by Streetlight Circus Recorded at Snake Mountain Studios - Monroe, New York Mixed and Mastered by Bob St. John for PDQ Productions Bio: Born in New York City, raised on rock ‘n’ roll, Streetlight Circus has become a fist-raising juggernaut.  With two independently-released full-length albums and one EP, consistent touring in the United States and overseas, invites to major American rock festivals, and bills shared with countless venerated artists, Streetlight Circus has become a name synonymous with the new wave of hard rock. The band's new album, Super Fine Sugar, represents a huge leap forward for the hard-hitting quartet. Streetlight Circus showcases the urgent songwriting and soaring vocals of David Shaw, the fiery and passionate guitar work of George Giannoulis, the thunderous drumming of Erik Fehrenbach, and the smooth rhythm guitar work of Alex Rude. What’s more, Streetlight Circus has captured the attention of industry stalwarts who have eagerly participated in the creation of the new album. The songs were mixed and mastered by Grammy-winning producer and engineer Bob St. John. Guest appearances are made by Berton Averre (The Knack), Tony Harnell (TNT), Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow (The Posies), Brian Forsythe (Kix), and Jesper and Jacob Binzer (D-A-D). Streetlight Circus has been invited to rock thousands at festivals such as Rock Fest (Wisconsin), Rocklahoma (Oklahoma), Rock N’ Derby (New York), Wolf Fest (Colorado), and the M3 Rock Festival (Maryland) among many others. The band has managed to comfortably fit on bills featuring bands as heavy as Avatar, Anthrax, and Megadeth and as accessible as The Doobie Brothers, Buckcherry, and Night Ranger. In 2018, Streetlight Circus embarked on a successful headlining tour of the United Kingdom taking them from Wales to Scotland and many British points in between. Supercharged and ready to roll with Super Fine Sugar, Streetlight Circus is prepared to rock stages around the globe. Don’t miss your chance to rock under the band’s big top. It’s a show you won’t want to miss. Watch the video for "Dirty Earth" featuring Tony Harnell at the link below  https://youtu.be/08_IuFTqwTM

    • Such was commonplace around here years ago. 
    • That's an oxymoron-even KarpetRyd knows that !  
    • Checked this out....not too bad but not sure how memorable it'll be. There's a few tunes I thought sounded pretty good after my first listen and do think Ronnie sounds excellent on the album  Songs like Scream and Shot in the Dark both stood out to me a bit.  I thought Last Man Alive sounded decent too. Much of the rest kind of feels like it falls in line with the first 2 singles that were released.  It's kind of heavy which is cool but just not coming off as being that catchy or memorable initially which was sort of my same problem with the last album.   We'll see what happens with more listens.  Here's a link to the whole album:
