Really looking forward to this one, as with all Skynyrd albums. From the 3 tracks I've heard, it's gonna be a banging album, Bob Marlette producing too, which is an added bonus. It's Out on Monday, so i'll report back once it's in my grubby mitts.

so i picked up the special editon of the new Skynyrd album yesterday. I've been sick for almost 4 weeks now. chest congestion, coughing really bad the more I move around and now my head is all congested. so i took my stubborn self to the after hours clinic yesterday evening. Got my RX and headed back to walmart to get them filled. they told me it would be 20 minutes. I go back to my vehicle and think, "its time to open up this puppy and take a listen". I must say that I am let down with this. it has some good songs but nothing great. The weak songs are much weaker than those of the last 2 albums. I think the last couple albums have been super. This one Im just not feeling it. It seems like the band kind of just, not phoned it in but maybe werent as in the "zone" with this one. I got to the last of the album then we start with the bonus tracks and I was hoping that it would pick up but not really. almost feels like songs that didn't make the last couple albums for some reason or another. As a big skynyrd fan I was just wanting another steller album, what I got was an ok album

I think it's a pretty good Skynyrd album over all. It isn't as good as 'Gods And Guns' 'Vicious Cycle' or 'Edge Of Forever', although all three of those were brilliant albums with hardly any filler at all, so I would pitch it somewhere in the middle of the latter day (1990 onwards) Skynyrd stuff.

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:  
    • WTF is this, two dudes having an intelligent conversation about a band without relying on easy absolutes. I'm impressed.
    • Their Rock 'n' Roll Glitter Suit album is a good one.
