I truly hate the band name. The video, especially the vocalist's demeanour, is terrible. And that song is way too boppy too.

 

However, the opener, 'Rock until I'm done' sounds very nice. I'd check the band based on that song and their overall style, but not sure about their choice of single...

The first album 'It Is So' was pretty good in places, a bit quirky sound wise too, with big influences from lots of 70's Glam bands, which I liked, so this raises my interest and will check it out. A bit of a strange choice for Escape, but good to see them getting behind them.

WOW..Major surprise this one... As I said above the 1st disc was a solid 70's glam influenced one, but the new one takes things firmly down the Scandie Melodic rock path, and really good and consistent it is too. The single ''The Boys Are Having fun' is probably the weakest track on show, 'Rock Until I'm Done' is an excellent opener and 'Tokyo Delights' 'Never Again' 'Back Together 'All She Wrote' , 'Alrite Tonight' A nice remix of 'Pamela' from the first album and a great acoustic version of Ozzy's 'Shot In The Dark' rounds things off very nicely. Rather fab

Just played this one out and I'll say I kinda like it better than the debut. This one is more melodic rock, very true, but I still can't get past the vocal nicely, I think he's the weakest link here. Overall, songs are enjoyable, and I even like 'The Boys Are Having Fun' which Jez cited as their weakest. To me, the last track, 'Rockstar' is perhaps the lowest one, the mid-tempo ballad, 'All She Wrote' is kinda average but not bad.

 

Best track here is the energetic tune, 'Life Goes On', followed by 'Tokyo Delights' and 'All Alone'. The opening tune, 'Rock Until I'm Done' is also a nicely done track, and 'Alrite Tonite' and 'Never Again' are pretty much enjoyable too. Production is around 8/10 and musicianship level is around 7/10. This disc came out surprisingly good and I think it almost reached the 8/10 mark, probably will after more spins later.

I like it more than the debut, also agree that the vocals are the weakest link.
