The Babys - I'll Have Some Of That

I absolutely love this band, but i'm not sure about The Babys minus John Waite to be honest. Some bands work with a change of front man, some don't. I like the song though, which is the main thing I suppose.

I read that as one sentence, "The Baby's Not Ready to Say Goodbye," and thought, "Damn, sounds like a depressing song."

I wouldn't put Bad Company in that group. they went with a total different sound with Howe and only returned to the big blues rock sound with Hart.

 

Yeah, I was referring to Hart with BC -- he sounds so much like Rodgers I was almost blown away to learn it wasn't him. Howe was a refreshing choice, one I wish more bands would copy to prove they can survive without a trademark voice.

Good song - I agree with Jez and RevM about the new vocalist and whether bands work or not when you replace such a distinctive vocalist. The song is good enough and does hark back to that classic Babys sound circa Head First - the vocal phrasing at the start is a direct lift off JWs style. It's tough, I'd probably buy it for the Babys name as they are one of my fave bands but would I REALLY consider it a Babys album proper? I think if he was mimicking JW all the way through it might just get on my nerves.

Yeah, not convinced by this ... 'Union Jacks' is one of my all-time favourite albums, and to me The Babys without Waite is like Priest without Halford or Maiden without Dickinson ... I don't see it working :(

I heard the beginning of the song and thought it had promise, then I hear the singer trying to sound like Waite and I was instantly turned off.

I've had the album (Nick C Too) for about a week now, as it was given as a download to people that have 'Pledged' for the physical release in May (June for non pledgers). All I will say for the moment is that It's a really good, strong album and existing Babys fans are gonna love it and it may well surprise a good few others along the way too.

I couldn't really detect too much trying to sound like Waite, personally. If he tries, he's a fool. That;s one voice no one can or should even try to emulate, as you'll just fail and look silly. I guess that song is okay, but not knowing any of the band's back catalogue I don't know how good it should be. ;) I'd possibly give the new album a listen...

Heard this song on a classic rock mag cd weeks ago. Have to say I wasn't all that impressed, it sounds to me like nothing original and just trying to emulate an old babys song. Im a big fan of all of john waites projects though, everything from the babys through to bad english and his solo albums. Will definitely give a new babys album a listen despite beigh a little put off by this new single.

Yeah, I didn't think he sounded too much like Waite, either.

Physical copies should have arrived (or be very close) for all that helped out using the pledge scheme. Official release is tomorrow for everyone else, so hopefully this will shift a few copies, as it's a really good disc as I've said. A minor niggle is It's a shame (and a bit odd) that they have left off 'When Life Goes Right' and especially 'Not Ready To Say Goodbye' from the first pressing, although that song has been avaliable for nearly a year now on itunes and was also featured on the Classic Rock AOR CD a while back....It .would have been nice to have all 14 tracks on the disc though.

    • Agree...that sounds better. Still potential here and Erik makes it listenable.    This first single could've been pretty good with a different structured chorus so hopefully other tunes are a bit better. Still not sure its going to be melodic/catchy enough for my tastes which is generally my problem with this  genre.
    • My apologies, cob, but didn't Cody say "the only thing Atheists all have in common is we do not subscribe to the myth of the deity, god or higher power, of any kind, this is it, then we are worm food, not all Atheists subscribe to the same meaning or philosophy, we don't all believe in the same science, or anything, I personally feel as though..." Sorry if I misread, but that doesn't really sound like a group that are fundamentalist in their certainty. In fact, none of that really sounded to me how you describe it.  What does intrigue me, though, is that you acknowledge that we are just a speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant... yet religious folk believe that there's a god out there somewhere and his only concern is whether this speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant follows the gospel or not? And not only this speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant, but every single other speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant that has ever existed? Of the entire universe throughout the entirety of time, all this god really cares about is whether each speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant is following the gospel. Because if not, that speck upon a speck upon a speck staring at a piece of dirt on the toenail of an elephant is sure as heck going to hell. Sounds like the type of being I'd like to devote my single human life to.  Sorry dudes, like I say, I'm not an atheist (that I know of), and I'm sure as heck not a religious man. What do you call someone who is just honest enough to admit that I don't have a clue how we started, or why we are, or what will happen when we're dead? And I also believe that no one alive now, or whom has lived before us, has these answers either. Nor will they ever have them. No matter how steadfast someone is in their belief of whatever they believe, no one will ever be able to answer, with 100% certainty, those questions. 
    • And a small but important  update. Had an MRI scan two weeks back and just before I went in for a weeks chemo. The day I was discharged the doctor who discharged me gave me the results of the MRI scan and confirmed my feelings that the brain cancer had reduced in size, so everything it seems is going to plan.
    • I'd like to think so too, but I don't think it is. But I am always weary of what's being reported in Australian media. Are we just seeing everything from the hysterical, moronic and blown out of proportion version that the Aussie media feeds us? Or are there actually things happening outside of this country that are as hysterically panic driven as they are here? From the few other things I've heard, globally, it does seem that this variant has earned it's own little slice of worldwide panic, so I guess we'll see. This Panic First, Ask Questions Later mentality that the world has adopted is honestly an (even further) embarrassment to humanity. If I didn't have children I would confess that the time has certainly well and truly come for the human race to be nuked and made extinct. I ponder how much I hated humans in 2019. It took 40 years to build up that level of hatred. I am not even kidding to say that those 40 years of built up hatred has probably doubled, if not tripled or even quadrupled in the space of the two years since. What I think of what has become of the human race in the space of two years has no words left to describe it. 
    • It is definitely flashdance. I can't unhear it now.
    • Everyone I have spoken to from cities are shitting themselves over this Omricon variant. I say to them "don't you want things to go back to normal?". But they really don't. They are loving living in a police state. I have spoken to a number of ex-prisoners as well who have similar thoughts about jail. I think a lot of people are wired to like having freedom and choice taken away from them. They enjoy having fewer options. It is bizarre to me.
    • the first song wasn't the clip I heard - this sound more promising to me https://www.facebook.com/100764135031478/posts/426269785814243/
