ZOMFG IT'S RIDGE FROM BOLD & THE BEAUTIFUL! lol.

 

Seriously, though, even if those samples were any good I couldn't take it seriously. They sound like the tacky kind of stuff you'd see on a rubbishy soapie. Awful. :lol:

I won't knock ya mate, as this lot have a good pedigree and have made some really good Westcoast records over the years. I will give it a good listen for sure.

That official track is actually alright. Nice hook. I wonder if this is the reason Ridge Forrester left 'Bold & The Beautiful' after being on it for about 400 years?

This disc is definitely intended for the westcoast fan or those who's into very poppish 80s AOR stuff. I don't mind several tracks here such as 'Man On Fire', 'Precious', the acoustical poppish track 'I Will', the mid paced 'You're My Addiction' and 'You're My Addiction' are also pretty good; and 'The Words You Say' is probably around 7.25/10. Best track is 'Life In Color' which I rated around 8, but that's about it, the rest are 6 - 7. Worst tracks are 'Part of Me' and 'Kites'. Production is quite decent, musicianship is pretty average, and replay value is a 4/10 because this is extremely moody record, you'll get bored easily unless you spin it very rarely, and perhaps good for background music.

I gave it a 63% rating and I liked the songs 'I will' and 'To the extreme.' I don't think it's a bad CD, but the songs for the most part are very plain, simple and average. Like you say, it's hard to find a reason to play most of these tunes ever again. Solid production job, though.

I quite like most of the songs on here, and rated them approx mid 70's in general, but thought the big downside of this album was the production on some tracks. They sound like pre-production demo's to my ears, especially the drums and bass.

    • That's actually a pretty cool song. Better than his previous bands for sure. I gotta agree with Auslander, though. Something a bit off-putting about those backing vocals. Some are nice, but particularly the ones at the start of the chorus are, as I said, "off-putting."  I've had lukewarm reactions to backing vocals in the past, though, and sometimes I get past it. Hopefully this is one of those occasions?
    • I have been summoned. #1 - plods along and goes absolutely nowhere. Sorry, no cup of seme- uh, tea. #2 - certainly a bit more lively that the first one. Not bad, but it's very, very basic stuff. Okay tune. #3 - yeah, sadly just not my thing. As weak as, if not weaker than the first track.  Sorry cob, I think it's going to have to be a pass from me.  
    • Yeah, I do agree and I don't want people to get me wrong. I'm not a defund the police type or anything like that. My respect for the police is at the lowest it has been in my entire life, but I hope it is something that can be restored in time... though the longer this all goes on, the less hope I have at all for a future worth looking forward to. But that's another story.  I do have some regard for police officers "just following orders" but I've seen and heard way too much to have too much sympathy. And I agree that it is the policy makers that I despise most of all, but I'd have liked to have seen some sort of resistance from the police in all of this. It's been my biggest issue through the whole thing. In the media, government and the police force, there are so few voices (and definitely no significant voices) opposing the ridiculous nature of what has happened over the last two years and is still ongoing.  I don't understand it all, but are the police part of the government, or is there some separation there? If you're given absolutely absurd rules to enforce, I would like to see opposition to it. And as I do with everything, I think what I would do in their situation. If I was a police officer, and I had a family to feed, what would I do? Would I stand outside a grocery store and fine a couple who removed their masks as they walked out the store? Sure as all fuckery, I would not. I've been asked by several officers throughout the last couple of years to put my mask on before a fine was issued, so I'm 100%, definitely not just painting all police with the same brush. I know there's exceptions to every rule. But for any officer who's first instinct was to fine for mask breaches, or insane area restrictions or any of the entirely petty, pathetic laws we've had to endure over the last couple of years, for them I have no respect whatsoever. Even if you're put in the terrible situation they've been put in, there's still a way you can handle it, and a lot of the ways I've seen and heard it handled is not something I can respect.  Anyway, I watched a cool video today. It's as if this guy took every thought I've had on the whole pandemic and said it in proper, intelligent words. If I wasn't as dumb as a wooden post these are the words I'd be saying-  
    • With a rack like that, I'm sure she is.
    • Didn't see anything on this and 1 the new songs are real nice and 2 the Dare Force connection and Johnny's Minnesotian presence just makes it all to epic! His debut solo release Truth or Dare is out now and the 3 video tracks are really good, heck @Geoff my even like it.   I am partial to #2 atm. https://www.facebook.com/JohnnyONeilOfficial https://www.johnnyoneil.com/      
    • I thought of this one today for some reason.  I'm sure everyone here is familiar with "Talking Heads - Psycho Killer" from '77, a very strange track in it's own right, but does anyone here remember the 1980 parody track "Psycho Chicken" by "The Fools"?      
    • That's more like it mate. Your best one so far. Keep it up.
