Agree that one is a great song, although slightly patchy on the verse, but the chorus is just pure heaven, but I prefer two other songs such as 'Blind Hearted' - which has Harem Scarem hooks; and 'Access Denied' is also brilliant. 'Black Cat' is also fantastic, 'Here I Am' is nice and 'We Don't Belong' is a very nice ballad track that's evolved to an uptempo tune later.

 

The rest are quite solid but not really great for me. 'In For The Ride' is quite poppish but barely reach the 8/10 mark, 'Follow Her' is perhaps the worst track here, 'Coming Home' is also very good but there's something off about this so I need to downgrade it to 7.5. If you happen to have the bonus track, I can say that 'Just Another Heartache' is also a good track to have although not propelling the whole score any higher.

 

Musicianship is quite average and replay value is moderate at 7.5 for me because I'm not really into modern thing at all as I can see they have that element here, but overall still a very nice album, perhaps almost on par with the debut. I need to replay the old album for the accurate comparison first.

Yeah, 'Blind Hearted' and 'We don't belong' are my other faves... and 'Black cat' is a killer opener. And 'Access Denied' would be next for me too. I rated it 82% and basically agree with your review more or less. The standouts are stellar, but there are a few just solid tracks.

This one is my surprise of the year (so far)! Bought the debut mainly because I wanted to support Andrew and the band and thought it was quite patchy. Their new disc on the other hand is killer imo: Immaculate production, great songs and intense melodies!

Favorites so far are 'Blindhearted', 'Access Denied' and 'Coming Home', but there really isn't any average song to be found.

You guys rated this much higher than me. After all the great reviews for this, I thought I'd like it for sure.

 

Nope. Can't say I'm digging this much at all, even with the Harem Scarem similarities occasionally.

 

I rated this 72%, which is lower than the rest of you guys.

Have I not commented here, yet? Yeah, this one kills. Black Cat, What If, In for the Ride, Follow Her, Blind Hearted, Access Denied, all fantastic tunes.

    • you can choose to use your own lyrics or just describe the premise and it generates them for you - the more detail you put in the closer it will be to what you want.You have 3000 characters of space.  You then describe how the song sounds.  It then creates 2 different songs, but you can carry on creating as many options as you want. You only get 10 songs a day though on the free options and you can't use commercially on the free version - you know like upload to Spotify etc. 
    • So I'm currently on my summer hols which gives me time to catch up on alot of music I have missed or haven't listened to in a while. Anyway yesterday I was listening to Broadside - Hotel Bleu ( great album btw). Now I have Spotify set to play similar artists once the album finishes and Honey Revenge were one of those artists. Liked the song I heard so checked out their debut album Retrovision and it's a cracker. The duo are Devin Papadol- vocals and Devin Lloyd - guitar and together have produced and album full of perfect pop rock. Highly Recommended and well worth a listen.   Full album ...  
    • So, I'll ask again, but what's the go here mate? Are they your lyrics?  Do you type in a specific genre and instrument combination? What about the melody? I should check it out myself when I have time, but I'm very curious. 
    • Nice, they love "Tiger Tiger" in Japan.  
    • VIXEN Announces New Singer ROSA LARICCHIUTA June 21, 2024 VIXEN has recruited Rosa Laricchiuta(TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRA, HEADPINS),as the band's new lead singer following the recent departure of Lorraine Lewis. Laricchiuta made her live debut with VIXEN earlier tonight (Friday, June 21) at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California alongside GREAT WHITE, SLAUGHTER and QUIET RIOT.   Laricchiuta is a singer, songwriter, and performer from Montreal, Quebec. After several years cutting her teeth with live shows, she auditioned for the third season (2015) of "La Voix", Quebec's version of the popular TV show "The Voice". Rosa had an instant connection with the legendary francophone rocker Éric Lapointe and chose him as her coach. Rosa showed a solid stage presence, with remarkable intensity and a voice so powerful it sent her straight to the Grand Finale where she shared the stage with DEF LEPPARD, Kelly Clarkson, Jean Leloup and her idol, Melissa Etheridge. She left a lasting impression as she won over millions of viewers who named her the new "it" female rocker of Quebec.   She then released one album in the Quebec market before beginning work on her first English language album in 2016. That album, "Free", was released the following year and at the end of the year, she joined the popular American band TRANS-SIBERIAN ORCHESTRAfor their annual mega tour of the United States. Laricchiuta's hard rock project BLACK ROSE MAZE released its self-titled debut album in August 2020 via Frontiers Music Srl. VIXEN has more than a dozen more shows scheduled for the summer and early fall.
    • Huh, how odd. I just checked and it's indeed there. I guess I'm blind.
    • I see them both in my spotify?! Remixes sound good and better than originals to me!
    • How odd. It appears that only the first remixed album is on Spotify. I usually don't bother to listen to remixes, but I think I'll check this one out.
    • Apparently the first two H.E.A.T albums have been remixed and are on YouTube. I personally don't think there was anything wrong with the originals and some of these new versions seem overproduced to me, but I'll let you all judge for yourselves.
