Interesting. I'm not completely sold, but it looks worth more investigation. I'm not wild about the vocals and there's almost a Billy Idol kind of vibe (which I don't like), but like I said, I'd like to hear more.

Love the album. i was just going to sing it's praises when I saw this thread!! Very solid glam production and good songs. The lead vocals are the slight weak link but they have a certain charm. They remind me a little of 80's band Candy.

Who produced the album cos it's sonically great! the drum sound works!!

I'm playing this party album every day!!

Like it. Good stuff.

 

And the actress in the video is gorgeous!

 

(Just listened to 'Loaded Gun' by the same band ... not nearly as good imo; pretty average track. 'Run Away' was a little better, but not much. Shame.)

Really big surprise of 2012 to be honest. Didn't expect too much from this disc but I ended up really digging it. Here's a rundown of my thoughts on it:

 

1. Dollhouse (3:38) - good, catchy opening rocker - 7.25

2. Are You Scared of Clowns (3:39) - good comercial rocker, odd lyrics - 7.75

3. Run Away (3:36) - very nice commercial rocker - 8.00

4. Isabella (3:16) - another very good commercial/melodic rocker - 8.50

5. Lonely Room (3:38) - nice balladic number - 7.75

6. I Love Barbie (3:13) - decent tune, but not their best by any means - cool verses, though - 7.00

7. Turn Around (3:29) - nice catchy rocker - 7.25

8. Holly Dolly (3:35) - another pretty cool catchy rocker - 7.00

9. Loaded Gun (3:53) - good comercial rock tune - 7.25

10. Falling (3:38) - good melodic rocker - 7.75

 

 

TOTAL SCORE - 76%

 

The disc contains a couple of very surprising melodic/commercial numbers. Some odd lyrics and subjects along the way, but a really good debut. Great job.

Just been listening to this again ... changed my mind about 'Loaded Gun' - really nice tune. Could really do with a guitar solo, but otherwise a great song imo. Also love the title track and quite like 'Run Away'.

Us Amerkin's are blocked from watching apparently we ain't kewl enuff???

 

 

Yep. Same over here.

 

 

Sorry doods... they're just on 'Australia's Got Talent' at the moment and delivered a rendition of 'Dollhouse,' which was on their debut. I wouldn't say I'm a gigantic fan of the band, but compared to the rest of that trainwreck of a TV show it was pretty cool.

I don't watch that show, well because it's kinda long and drawn out too much, but it's better than the others of the same ilk.

Cool to see this band on it. There were 3 clips.

I remember this CD when it came out. Never really did it for me. Songs were ok, but nothing more than that.

 

You guys who can't see the clips - take that and multiply by 10 for Aussies, where so many US clips are 'not available in my country'

Weird 'cause we live in a global society now more than ever....

I first read this as though you were describing the clip. Take That multiplied by 10. Sounds like a good show. ;}

Don't know, but she was in that band.

She has a great sense of humor though, I guess that may have helped her through the public stigma of her theft lol

 

Is the theft thing true? Never heard that, but it'd make me laugh if it were true. She was on 'Celebrity Apprentice' too. I think she won it. lol, already forgot. Either her or Tim from 'Big Brother' won it. I like her too. She's a ditz, but funny.

 

But anyway, I agree with that guy, that the show is absolutely the worst of it's kind, by a country mile. Some guy comes on stage a plays with horses and the judges put him through? A fuckstick plays a ukulele whilst hoola-hooping and they put him through. Pointless dance groups (not singing); all through. A cute little boy dancing - I mean, it's all cute and stuff... but where the fuck is that going to go? The judges and point of the show is just so fucked up. I honestly don't understand the mindset for it. I hate it so much.

 

Anyway, as the story goes I was actually at work and walking through a doctor's surgery and noticed a glam band on a repeat of the show and made a mental note to watch re-runs to see what it's all about. Christ on a crutch it was hard work to get through it, though. Fast Forward was a good friend.

Suuuuuure,

 

Me thinks thou doth protest to much, and that you religiously record the show and watch over and over. :)

    • ....If we have something negative to say we will surely let it fly
    • Still waiting for the  2 inch dick Chinese to be held responsible for giving the world the plague.POS Biden Admin and their pussy diplomatic boycott - forget the entire d@mn thing.Send NO athletes.
    • Unless your beathing and lungs are so fucked up you have to be put on a ventilator.  So sorry I inconvenienced hospital staff. 
    • The morons who go to the hospital are just as ridiculous as the people who rail on them for not being vaxed, maybe it's Darwin's theory and who are we to interfere? I begrudgingly went to the hospital, they told me I had Covid, to come to the hospital, I went in they checked my kidney function, gave me some strips to pee on every 7 days, if the strip turned red then to come straight in, then I went home, I think that's pretty common sense, when you make the decision to not get vaxed, don't you kind of assume the risk if it's real? they cant do anything for you, so whats the point in going there? everything they can do you can do at your house, I am firmly in favor of a waiver you need to sign if your not getting vaxed that waives the hospital of any of their duties to treat you, I always spout self accountability rhetoric, that's my olive branch to a vax that's about as trustworthy as the communists pushing it, in my opinion.
    • Who comes out on top in these singer vs singer match-ups. All random. No real rhyme or reason.  
    • Hour Of Doom - Cornerstone 
    • Steel Glove - Accept ( a collection of songs pre " Balls to the walls " )  
    • For some reason the first song's melody reminds me so much of Last Christmas by Wham.
    • From Escape Music: Bite The Bullet were originally formed in 1986 by singer songwriter Mick Benton and drummer Graham Cowling. They met in 1984 when they both joined West London rock band “Mother’s Ruin”. Thanks to the legendary Greg Lake, Benton managed to secure a solo deal with Atlantic Records and he asked Cowling to play drums. Its good to see that their collaboration is still strong to this very day. In 1986 “Bite the Bullet” were formed and the music played was in the style of Foreigner, Toto and Mr. Mister, an album was released in 1989 to some quiet success. The music was warmly received and the band earned themselves some radio airplay. However, britpop was coming into the forefront and a cancelled support slot with the mighty ELO saw the band disheartened and whilst they never really disbanded there was a long period of inactivity. Benton and Cowling always remained friends and they still played in pubs and clubs over the years which brings is up to 2019 when their debut was reissued on CD. It ignited a flame in the two men and brought the original recording back to the forefront again and old fans reappraised the album whilst new fans joined in. In January 2021 the year started with “Black and White” (ESM349) and the band have gone from strength to strength. They combine Mr Mister with Asia to produce a nice smooth rock pop sound. Mick and Graham Have continued writing new material and here we are with an exciting new third release “End of the Line” and the result is amazing; the new songs have given the band a new fresh sound, bringing us into 2022. What a way to start the new year!   Release Date: 21 Jan, 2022  Catalogue no: ESM361  1 Quicksand 4:20  2 Over You 4:26  3 End of the line 3:49  4 Cold Wind 3:45 5 Roundabout 4:20  6 Lost for Words 4:12  7 September Sun 4:03  8 Band of Brothers 4:35  9 Let it Go 3:56  10 Camaraderie 5:02  11 Base Jumping 4:11  12 Sunflowers and Roses 4:08 Line up Mick Benton – Lead Vocals, Guitar, Bass, Keyboards Graham Cowling – Drums Malcolm Jones – Guitar
