Sounds fantastic. Sounds essential for Lionsville fans. I'm a little saddened they cut that first track before the chorus hits, with Mr Vega. Sounds like they may have some heavily accented vocalists on the rest of the disc, but it should still be very nice.

Been spinning this all morning and to be honest, it bored me shitless by track 8. It's very very similar to the Shining Line cd, same format and personnel, with guest vocals on every track etc etc,and the outcome is surprisingly the same. The songs are pretty much one paced and not that great either it has to be said..nothing that really stands out that call for repeated listening.. Yet another bog average AOR album..the list is ever growing.

Totally agree, mate. The opener with Workman on vocals is a pretty good start but a few songs in I was praying for it to just end. It's not truly terrible, but it just drags on without any interesting songs at all. Not really bad songs, just very bland and boring. And it's soooo long too... Not recommended, this one.

Glad it isn't just me mate..I was getting worried for a minute. Did you rate the Shining Line CD.I can't remember if you did or not . I wasn't blown away with that either, but it's better than this one. Neither at all essential.

I remember I'm impressed with Shining Line at the first spin but then it wears off after 2-3 spins, but it's still a good album. Looks like this one's really boring, I might pass it

I think I liked the Shining Line CD, but yeah, it's definitely not a fave of my by any means. The fact that I can't really remember it myself does not speak well of it. I think there were a lot of songs that were quite long and not overly memorable, but I enjoyed the overall feel. Similar to Lionville also, I think? Definitely better than this one, that's for sure. ;)

wow, Shining Line is a way off the quality of Lionville imo.

 

Only a few decent songs and some of them definitely overlong

    • Cool song. If ADV is strictly hired to play keys, it should be fine. 
    • Ooh, nice!  I'll have to revisit the first album. 
    • Ugh... I hate you so much. You know I hate you, right? ;} I've never seen either iteration. 
    • These are sounding pretty good.

    • Imagine a world where Andrew Wood didn’t die and Mother Love Bone was still creating awesome music!
    • “My Icarian Flight” featuring the one and only ADV 😜  
    • lol, this was my thought process too. What about Confess?! I like both bands, but not at the expense of one of them. 
    • I do have to give him credit for sounding exactly the same as he did in 1989...
