Wow, I really like that. Not super wild about the chorus backing vocals, but it's a very good song. I liked their debut, but it looks like they're going in the right direction.

 

I said it about JSS' last solo album, but it sounds like the dude sure knows his way around the buttons and knobs when it comes to production. That should really benefit their sound too.

 

I wonder why those Human Clay CDs sound so terrible, if he had this talent for production in him?

I heard this one once already. Sounds pretty good. Sounds like JSS has pretty much completely invaded this band and made it basically his own project, lol. I think he sung half or most the vocals on most songs. Also produced by JSS too? Anyone, the vocals is not a bad thing because the guy in the band doesn't have the greatest voice. This album isn't amazing, but it sounded pretty good to me.

Completed my first sweep of this album this morning, and while it's still a good album, it's almost felt down to the average status, maybe because at least 4-5 tracks that I rated around 6+ something. Best track here so far is 'Don't Die Young' with a splendid riffs and great verse/chorus, followed by 'One Hit In The Night', 'Not An Angel', 'King of Thieves', 'My Last Day On Earth', and 'Last Call' but all of em just can't past the 8/10 mark, so that's the problem. Vocal isn't strong, but the guitar part is quite fine. Production also sounds great but replay value for me is quite low. Maybe some sounds a bit samey, but probably plodded with weak songs like 'Decadence', 'Road Kill', 'Dead By Christmas', and 'I'm Not Here'.

It's a pass from me.

    • Atlantis is amazing 👏  Was my album of that year 
    • 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.
