Yet another enjoyable Italian hard rock release, seems to be their second album, I kinda forgot the debut but I recall as it being kinda good, maybe this one a bit better or possibly as strong as the first. The vocal is rough and heavy and the guitar part is very nice, there are several killer solos here. Most songs are in mid and fast paced, with probably couple of power ballads, but didn't sound sappy and instead it's kinda punchy.

 

Songs that I think are their strongest here are 'Undying' - cool bridge and nice chorus; 'I To I' - fantastic riffs; 'Paralyzed' is really great at verse and kinda okay at chorus, slightly patchy but overall still good I guess; the anthemic 'Hottest Fire' is amazing, and my most fave track here is 'Desire' - definitely the hard-hittin'10/10 track!; 'More Heaven Than Hell' is another very nice track; 'The Dreaming' is really great at verse but a bit patchy on the chorus, shame cause it could be a massive track; the closing track 'Love Still Finds A Way' is also very good.

 

On the weaker side - 'Falling Up' is perhaps an average filler for me but the vocal is strong though; 'Half A Chance' is almost great, and same goes with 'Goin On', somethin' missing there so probably it's a 7 or 7.5 thing; 'Stand Up' is 7/10 or slightly lower than that.

Really impressive 2nd disc after a good but patchy debut. I didn't think we'd hear from the again, so I was happy to hear such a solid follow-up. I scored it the same as you and this is how I came to that conclusion:

 

1. Undying - good melodic rock opener - 7.75

2. IToI - good melodic rocker - cool chorus - 7.75

3. Half A Chance - another good melodic rocker, just off being real good - 7.75

4. Paralyzed - solid ballad but not the greatest end to the chorus - 7.50

5. Hottest Fire - another good rocker with a very cool chorus - 8.00

6. Falling Up - another good solid hard rock song - 7.50

7. Desire - good solid hard rocker - 7.50

8. Goin' On - very good stuff - great commercial rocker - 8.00

9. More Heaven Than Hell - and another - 8.00

10. Stand Up - a solid hard rocker - 7.50

11. The Dreaming - another good meldodic rocker - nice - 8.00

12. Love Still Finds A Way - another very good melodic rocker - one of the best here - 8.00

 

TOTAL SCORE - 78%

    • "Local News" doesn't even exist anymore.Right out of the gate they slam you with the Covid numbers...the body count...a clusterf__k of  negativity..maybe a little time for weather and sports and then newscast DONE! On radio - same thing  every half hour: rinse-wash-repeat.National / global depression,drug use,suicide rates still climbing....
    • As if we need something else to worry about but with overpopulation and a rapidly changing world due to climate issues..... In 2009, a patient in Japan developed a new fungal infection on their ear. The highly transmissible Candida auris fungus had been previously unknown to science (and resistant to the drugs available to treat it), but within a few years, cases started emerging in Venezuela, Iran, Russia, and South Africa. Scientists assumed that the spread was due to human travel, but when they sequenced the cases, they were surprised to find that these strains weren't closely related at all. Instead, scientists were seeing multiple, independent infections of an unknown fungal disease, emerging around the world, all at the same time. About a third of people infected with Candida auris die from the infection within 30 days, and there have now been thousands of cases in 47 countries. Some scientists think this sudden boom in global cases is a harbinger of things to come.
    • Agreed. I subbed to Russell Brand starting about 2 months ago. Yes, he's on the Left, but VERY even-handed IMO.
    • It's so hard to find unbiased info on anything these days...I just wish this virus wasn't being politicized...trust the science...once the science figures out wtf is going on which it hasn't yet....
    • Did you hear the fabled "roadmap to reopening the borders" has now been halted/delayed due the new (horrified screaming) variants? It's so predictable and the media machine are backing the states the whole way. More people at home, more people watching TV, more people buying shit from billionaires, more money for advertising, more wages for journalists , more votes for the government, more laws to control the populace. Win win win for elites.
    • This is currently the best independent media commentator on the internet. He comes from the Left, but old-school classical liberal and not the new devisive identity politics. Here he is discussing the shit going down in Australia.  
    • Gotta love the irresponsible national / global media."The new normal" for these idiots is the endless,fear mongering ritual abuse of the populace where any news on the "virus".."variants"..etc brings another flogging with the covid stick.Anyone who dares to question the over-reaching actions by government,"the science" or the asinine-repetitive-exploitive newsroom press propaganda are labeled a "conspiracy theorist"..or misinformation spreader...we've seen it all before -  try it on someone else.
    • Erik sounds good but song does little for me.  Really don't like the chorus...if you can even call that a chorus.
    • Got my refund today, fucking stupid, I was looking forward to this, oh well Loudness in March, havent seen them since 82, I was 5, my very first concert, super stoked for that.
