Sounds great to me. These guys seem to get better with every release and I trust this'll be another step in that direction. Looking forward to it.

Finally got to hear it and it sounds great. I can't say enough about Split your lip. Just snotty, cocky, sleazy rock the way I like it along with some great haunting ballads. I will be buying this for sure!

Finally someone else that loved Split Your Lip. I loved the S/T and Dreamin' too and Beg for It was solid but to me Split Your Lip is my favorite album of theirs.

I love it, not sure its my fav tho. The 2 ballads do break the momentum tho - for me HS are NOT a ballad band - every song needs to kick your arse. Period.

That's what makes the ballads on that album so special. He does not have a ballad voice but pulls off two perfectly including the closiing track. Very heartfelt, gut wretching ballads. And I am not a ballad guy.

 

Those 2 aside, the rest of the album kicks you right in the dick! I love Honeymoon, among many others. No filler on this cd and is their best so far. Hell, my 7 year old son BEGS me to play Moonshine constantly to where I can't even listen to it anymore LOL!

Wow, this is catchy as hell, great tune. I think their last couple of albums have too many fillers on them, "No Regrets" is still their finest hour imo.

 

Fillers?

 

Wow.

 

Barely a filler on any of their last 4 albums imo.

I agree there's not really a filler on the last 4 discs. Not to say every song is killer by any means, but there's nothing really bad amongst the whole lot. 'Guest list' is probably my personal fave of the lot, off the last disc. Some really good stuff to pick from, though.

    • A lot to like on this release but also some stuff just too light for me. 
    • What a honey Gudrun Laos was and what a Killer track this is!    
    • I didn't say I didn't like it. It's a good album, but I guess after years of reading folks praise for it I built it up to be something more than it actually was. 
    • We already know you're a leftist idiot! Known all around these parts!
    • How are you guys letting horrible songs get into your head???
    • I'm surprised you didn't like it. That's a shame. 
    • It's a mystery alright, although how the band could okay this for release is an even bigger mystery. Also find it intresting that all of the reviews I've read have failed to mention the bizarre mixing and mastering of this record, which kinda makes you question their credibility as rock reviewers.   This I don't agree with at all. The thing that makes H.E.A.T the awesome band that they are is that they've never compromised with their sound or felt the urge to follow trends. We all know that they've could have gone the Dynazty route, making hard 'n' heavy records, that would probably have made them an even bigger and more popular band with the masses. Of course that's not what the fans want, and they know that. We want H.E.A.T to sound like H.E.A.T - and I think they've done a damn fine job of that on this record. I don't mind a bit of experimentation, like on Demon Eyes, as long as it's the exception and a temporarily deviation from the trademark sound. As for bangers, I do think there are some here, but they're all ruined to some degree by the poor mixing job. No, they don't reach the awesomeness of let's say "Dangerous Ground" or "Rock Your Body" from the last album, but stuff like "Nationwide", "Not For Sale", "Hold Your Fire" and "Wings Of An Aeroplane" come pretty damn close. Being the AOR fanatic I am, my main criticism with this band is always that I want them to be more AOR, like on the first 2-3 records. If you're looking for a direction, then this record is clearly a distinctive step away from that. They want to be pure melodic hard rock and not AOR, I think it's pretty clear. Truthfully it's been evident from "Tearing Down The Walls" and onward, but Force Majeure makes it even more evident that no change in that direction is very probable.   If there's anything that this album doesn't lack, it's guitars. The guitars are so loud in the mix that Kenny´s vocals are drowning in them. The album is unlistenable with good headphones, you have to play it through speakers or earphones to make it somewhat listenable. Other weird little things about this record: CD is released in Europe as a f*cking digipak for some reason. Who's beind this strange and unnecessary decision, the band or the label? Also, no writing credits. You have to go to Discogs or Spotify to find out who wrote these tunes.
    • You need to know who you are before trying to figure out who other people are.
    • I can work with Floor,  I like that Northward album she did with Jørn Viggo Lofstad.
