maybe they're too AOR for your heavier taste bro

 

Probably but I do like some AOR.

 

This sounds like it starts out a bit cheesey like some of their previous stuff, but the second half sounds like straight ahead AOR which might be more up your street?

 

Cheers

One of the most dramatically over-rated bands not only in recent years, but of all time, mate. You're not missing anything. The debut had a few pretty sweet tunes but everything since has been a nightmare, mostly unlistenable. I'll give the new one a go and hope I'm pleasantly surprised, but yeah, if it's good I will be just that, extremely surprised.

I thought the only song that didn't work was "Delusional." I mean, it's a good message, but that kind of content doesn't really work in a song format. Maybe in a more poetic, and metaphorical delivery, but the way they present it? Yeah, too cheesy.

Yeah that one is a bit 'theatrical' but that is a verse clip, the chorus is big Hitchcock.

There are a few gems, some really nice songs even after the debut imo, but far, far, far too many ballads on their albums. I'll bet pretty much every other song will be a ballad, so this will be a 'download a few tunes' job for me.

Thoughts on the samples only - not full songs, I admit:

 

Immortal - terrible. Like a really bad version of 'Strong enough' from TH's solo disc.

Delusional - someone really records this when it's going on? Stop it!

Tie down the wind - no chorus admittedly, but I'm already very bored by this

Shine on - sounding cheesy and cuts out before chorus, but could be okay

 

... and that's about enough. I really just don't like the whole sound/style/vibe of this band and I get the feeling this won't change my thoughts.

I agree, but all the best sounding songs were from track 5 onwards.......always too quick to judge mate ;-)

 

Seriously though, there's always going to be some cheesy/theatrical moments on a POL disc, but some of these songs sound very promising to me....more akin to the debut.

 

You either like it or not i guess.

Haha, you serious about the track 5 and beyond comment? :lol: I'll give it a go sometime, I'm sure.

  • 2 weeks later...

.......and jacket. No wonder Toby is looking the other way! lol.

 

Also, I must admit that the video for 'Delusional' is appallingly bad, even in melodic/rock terms - never the best are they!! lol.

 

Im a bit worried that my initial hope that this would revert back to the debut sound.......ie less cheesey / theatrical, might be misplaced. Still eager to hear this though and some of the songs towards the end sound good.

In fairness he doesn't look any more ridiculous than some of the guys whose music you love - like the lead singer of Crashdiet for example. Just saying ;-)

Are you kidding me? Crashdiet's image is awesome!! I loved the photos of them in New York.

Just making the point that a 2 foot Mohican is probably just as weird as a purple hairdo, that's all.

But, at least a two foot Mohawk makes sense.

Tore the words from my mouth. I'll put that down to a moment of insanity, Glen, but you surely jest? This idiot looks like some moron who's been born and raised on marijuana, lives in a space portal and is clearly schizophrenic and heavily brain damaged. And did I mention an astronaut and a knight teamed up to dress him? Look at his stoned expression too. :lol: The guy hasn't a clue, surely, about anything... most of all where he is and who that guy behind him is. ;)

 

The dude in Crashdiet doesn't have hair I'd personally sport, but he's just your standard angry looking metal-type guy. They all look kind of silly technically, but in a kind of cool way. There is nothing even remotely cool about this jester.

Really lol ??! Just like spandex, chains, dodgy cowboy boots & everything else our beloved genre displays ;-)

I'm saying it makes sense, because it's indicative to the genre: sleaze metal. When did purple shag, and Gardian-style space suits represent AOR?

Ha ha yeah whatever, I actually thought he looks like a dude worth a bucket load of cash who can do and look like what he wants. He's the one laughing.

    • Hold on soldier, I'm hoping that wasn't aimed at me. I don't think I was putting anyone down, and as far as I know, I'm not an atheist either. I don't actually know. I can't stand all this label rubbish and don't have a label for my thoughts on this stuff. Yes, I believe you are born, you live and you die and that's the end of it. But they're just my thoughts.  Anyway, why are we talking about Christmas now anyway? Still almost 30 days to go... 
    • Agree, love that Irish girl type look. Tans are overrated!
    • Only humans were created in the image of God, and most consider that to mean possession of an eternal soul. However, the animals were put on the earth for humans to have dominion and use plus care for them. As for Heaven, we can't know what it will be like, but in my mind it would not be heaven if there were not dogs for me to hang out with, so I expect that yes there will be animals, otherwise how is it heaven for an animal lover? This view of heaven being in the clouds, wearing robes and playing harps is mostly an atheist's invention to mock what they can't comprehend. To try and explain heaven to an atheist is like trying to describe the sky to someone who has had their face buried in mud their entire lives. It's a rather fruitless and usually thankless task. I know atheists have their pile of dirt and nothingness to look forward to (lol). Yes, I am aware that atheists have invented this concept of "ascention" through genetic evolution or artificial immortality as a replacement of heaven in your religion, but I'm not sure how atheists rationalise an incorporeal existence in their concept of pointless nothingness. It doesn't bother me either what you atheists believe, I just wish you weren't so arrogant about your nihilistic mindset and cease with the put downs of those who don't share your belief set. And merry Christmas my pagan friends! I genuinely mean that.
    • Haha. Been decades since I had any discussions like this on the forum and I definitely do not want to revisit, but as my mind is always ticking over I was actually thinking about stuff the other day. So if we (humans) get a fancy afterlife kickin' it with Jesus and God n' stuff, do animals? When an ant dies, does the ant experience Heaven? Does a dog, or a cat? An elephant? Do all beings experience Heaven (or hell too, I guess, if they didn't follow the gospel?). Or do only humans experience Heaven, and if so, why do animals have a pointless existence but there simply must be something more to a human's life other than being born, living and dying?  Genuinely curious, compadre. I used to have many discussions with Mark (metalmaniac777) back in the day and we're still best buds and we even made love a few times. I'm sure he doesn't mind me disclosing that. So seriously not having a dig, but I live to learn. 
    • lol. Really interested to know if they get any takers. Solid wad of cash, $7500. Mildly interesting they still use a photo of the band with Lexxi in it, assuming they haven't replaced him yet? 
    • Yeah, I got a bit of a Degreed vibe from it too. Quality stuff. 
    • My wife had the news on this afternoon and I saw this mind numbing horseshit panic-splashed across the headlines. I thought wow, this sounds alarming. But I heard B.1.1.530 is going to hit even harder. To be honest, though, they called it something else on Aussie news, though - Cock Makers variant, or something like that. I seriously can't remember, but they actually had a name for it rather than this morse code version of it.  Anyway, 95% vaccinated in NSW and we still have to walk around like moron beatshit brains with our face masks on - mandatory - in all indoor settings. Mask rules weren't even this harsh for the majority of the pre-vaccine pandemic. Fuck me I love this cuntry. 
    • Yes, very nice, but unfortunately a distinct lack of "Titties" on show! FFS! This isn't the "Do you want to Bang your Librarian?" thread!
    • Not for me, but have at it bud. 
    • Titties not kitties.
