I wonder if anyone gets excited about these releases. I hope so, for the sake of the band. But it's almost a chore to listen to these new albums all the time. :lol: That's harsh, they're a decent band. But if they halved their discography and just released the best songs rather than every song, they'd fare a lot better for me, personally.

They're exactly AXEL RUDI PELL of Sweden, can't miss a year without an album :D


Yep, and they basically re-record the same album over and over again too. ;)

I agree Geoff.

:lol: Almost a clean sweep of all the songs on the album I dislike. Aside from 'For you', I don't like any of these songs. :lol:


Pickin' Up The Pieces, 2nd Look, For You, Preludium - The Man I Used To Be, New York Rain and My Final Love Song are all good tunes, though.

Just completed my first cycle of this album and as expected, this turns out to be the average LAD album. No songs are bad but many are predictable, half of this album are probably 7/10 stuffs and several that stood out are 'For You' - which clearly the best track here, 'Preludium', 'I Will See You Through', and '2nd Look' maybe. The latter has LZ Immigrant Song feel on the verse and the great is quite superb.


The bonus track for Japanese release is strangely the weakest of the bunch, so I don't see how that track could add any value at all to the expensive product, but Japanese taste might differ though. The production isn't really great but acceptable. One bad thing because they kept releasing the album frequently is that you sometimes lost the interest to spin it again soon so since this has the chance of gathering dust, the idea of buying this album is only for completist or probably if I can have it under $5 or something.

Yep, pretty much agree. There's only a handful of songs I need to hear from this CD ever again. And that's the awkward thing about these guys. If they just released the 6 best songs from this CD and the 6 best songs from the last CD, discarded the rest and released a CD every 2nd year, they'd probably be much better off.


Here's my thoughts:


1. Ten Tangerine Tales (0:20) - intro -

2. Pickin' Up The Pieces (4:34) - good, solid melodic rocker with a good chorus - 7.75

3. 2nd Look (3:49) - another good melodic rocker with a very nice chorus - 8.00

4. For You (4:43) - decent, kind of plodding tune - made by the chorus - 7.00

5. Preludium - The Man I Used To Be (5:14) - a familiar, but again quite nice chorus - 7.50

6. I Will See You Thru (4:36) - decent but not exciting melodic rock - 6.75

7. When I Found You (3:46) - very tame, plain melodic rock - 6.00

8. Lie To My Heart (5:00) - normal, straight melodic rock - 6.50

9. New York Rain (4:30) - very cool tune - one of LAD's best - 8.00

10. It's Magic (3:44) - decent, slightly silly rocker - 6.75

11. Rebel Rouser [sweet cover] (bonus track for Japan) (3:45) - plain filler - 5.00

12. My Final Love Song (3:45) - close to the best here - 7.50


Total - 70%

Rattle The Cage  4:42 Band members: David Shaw - lead vocals, bass George Giannoulis - lead guitar, vocals Alex Rude - guitar, vocals Erik Fehrenbach - drums, vocals Produced by Streetlight Circus Recorded at Snake Mountain Studios - Monroe, New York Mixed and Mastered by Bob St. John for PDQ Productions Bio: Born in New York City, raised on rock ‘n’ roll, Streetlight Circus has become a fist-raising juggernaut.  With two independently-released full-length albums and one EP, consistent touring in the United States and overseas, invites to major American rock festivals, and bills shared with countless venerated artists, Streetlight Circus has become a name synonymous with the new wave of hard rock. The band's new album, Super Fine Sugar, represents a huge leap forward for the hard-hitting quartet. Streetlight Circus showcases the urgent songwriting and soaring vocals of David Shaw, the fiery and passionate guitar work of George Giannoulis, the thunderous drumming of Erik Fehrenbach, and the smooth rhythm guitar work of Alex Rude. What’s more, Streetlight Circus has captured the attention of industry stalwarts who have eagerly participated in the creation of the new album. The songs were mixed and mastered by Grammy-winning producer and engineer Bob St. John. Guest appearances are made by Berton Averre (The Knack), Tony Harnell (TNT), Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow (The Posies), Brian Forsythe (Kix), and Jesper and Jacob Binzer (D-A-D). Streetlight Circus has been invited to rock thousands at festivals such as Rock Fest (Wisconsin), Rocklahoma (Oklahoma), Rock N’ Derby (New York), Wolf Fest (Colorado), and the M3 Rock Festival (Maryland) among many others. The band has managed to comfortably fit on bills featuring bands as heavy as Avatar, Anthrax, and Megadeth and as accessible as The Doobie Brothers, Buckcherry, and Night Ranger. In 2018, Streetlight Circus embarked on a successful headlining tour of the United Kingdom taking them from Wales to Scotland and many British points in between. Supercharged and ready to roll with Super Fine Sugar, Streetlight Circus is prepared to rock stages around the globe. Don’t miss your chance to rock under the band’s big top. It’s a show you won’t want to miss. Watch the video for "Dirty Earth" featuring Tony Harnell at the link below  https://youtu.be/08_IuFTqwTM

    • Such was commonplace around here years ago. 
    • That's an oxymoron-even KarpetRyd knows that !  
    • Checked this out....not too bad but not sure how memorable it'll be. There's a few tunes I thought sounded pretty good after my first listen and do think Ronnie sounds excellent on the album  Songs like Scream and Shot in the Dark both stood out to me a bit.  I thought Last Man Alive sounded decent too. Much of the rest kind of feels like it falls in line with the first 2 singles that were released.  It's kind of heavy which is cool but just not coming off as being that catchy or memorable initially which was sort of my same problem with the last album.   We'll see what happens with more listens.  Here's a link to the whole album:  
    • WTF is this, two dudes having an intelligent conversation about a band without relying on easy absolutes. I'm impressed.
    • Their Rock 'n' Roll Glitter Suit album is a good one.  
  • Create New...
