Adriangale - "SUCKERPUNCH !".


Recommended Posts

 

Well if Faith Circus eclipses Suckerpunch it must be amazing (and i'll be checking it out asap!!), cos this is one damned fine album.

 

I love pretty much every song, and they sound a lot closer to HS now (not a second rate version like before) which is fine by me.

 

Also production wise this is awesome.

That's some serious praise, Glen.

You're young. Don't be full of hate. Save it 'til you're older. You're gonna need it then.

Just listened to the new Adriangale and Glen is right, really close to Harem Scarem. Sounds good, nothing mind blowing, but really solid pretty much like a Kivel releases, never a bad one, just rarely something that blows me away.

This is one of the best Kivel releases to date in my opinion

I agree! The triple threat of Tango Down,LaValle and AdrianGale= AWESOME!!!

The first half of LaValle is virtually flawless, but tails off badly towards the end.

I think Lavalle's the Kivel's best release so far, I'm about to hear Maxx Explosion, but I doubt it will top that. Suckerpunch is great, perhaps I rated it around 81%, but agree with Geoff that the new Faith Circus is slightly better although FC is also inferior to Lavalle

Thing is i listened to Faith Circus last night and not one tune is 'spinning in my head'....the hooks on adriangale are far better imo of course.

to me AdrianGale is the band that took Kivel to a whole new level. they were the first band to have it all and have it all the time. the early Kivel bands would have a couple great songs on an album, a couple good ones and a lot of throw aways to fill out the cd. when Adriangale came along that all changed. albums became good or great through out the whole thing. the production value got so much better. the songwriting got better.

been listening to SuckerPunch and it is exactly what I would expect from the band. great solid album. nothing mind blowing but all the great elements that make this music so fun and awesome are here.

Great Job guys

Yeah, it is very solid. If I was being really critical, I would admit that for me it's missing a bit of heart and soul. Production is perfect, vocals and music is excellent, hooks are strong and every song is a well constructed melodic rock song. But it's arguably all a little mechanical, and just missing that personal edge to make it more than a pleasant listening experience.

I agree. It's missing something to make it special. Maybe with repeated spins it will get there but I don't know.

I love it , and I really like the their other albums. I think this is the best and most consistent.

Quite disagree about their best and most consistent as from what I've heard, the other three are better, especially Reprogram being their best. The new one is quite on par with 'Feel The Fire' I guess but I like FTF slightly better though

Eh? Their previous discs were patchy IMO.

 

Not a weak song on this for me and sound wise its HS with a small DL input.

 

Pretty great for my ears and my tastes.

At first I thought it was their best, too. But I'm not sure now. Would have to listen to them all in a row. I think I'd still take 'Re-Program' too. And I did like the 3rd disc too. Though there were a couple of fillers, and there are no fillers on the new disc. Like I said, it's a perfectly structured disc... I just wish it didn't feel so clinical to me.

That's what you call "overthinking it". :P

Right?!! Leave it to Geoffery to unnecessarily complicate something so simple.

    • Touch - Tomorrow Never Comes Ratt - E.P.  Derringer - Live in Cleveland 
    • Agree with the above - it's a cool release. As is being alluded to, it's not a belt-the-walls-down classic, but it's a good solid album and a cut above good. I like it. 
    • Oh man, thought this was going to be something new and my heart skipped a beat or three. Loved their last output too and would absolutely love something new. 
    • Had these albums for an age and probably spun them a million times each, without ever really loving either. I loved 'High enough' and enjoyed how they covered it with different lyrics on the follow-up and called it 'Where you going now?' Two great songs, as is 'Silence is broken.' Apart from them, some of it was good ol' fashioned barnyard stompin' fun, but not really my jam if I'm being honest. I think 'Coming of age' flirted with my best of tapes, but far as I recall it was mostly just the aforementioned three that ever made the mix tapes.
    • Dug this out for a listen yesterday, fantastic EP, would like them to release some new music but they have gone quiet...        
    • Third one from The Strike cause they're just so good...  
    • Big, long memories for me for this one. I remember picking the tape of this and Vain's 'No Respect' up in a second hand music shop in Kempsey. I think I'd passed on this before because the kind of "industrial" looking front cover, but man did I love what I heard when I heard it. Don't love every single song on it, but the best are near flawless. If I had to pick a favourite I couldn't go past 'Waiting for love.' 
    • Great track from a great EP...  
    • Are these guys still a thing? 
    • Played some catchup and plowed through a handful of films. Class of '84 - Excellent! I am sure it will get WAAAAY to many Stranger Things comparison but for me it was more Goonies meets The Burbs, but regardless it was very well done. Toy Story 4 - Damn you Disney. Just damn you. This was another great Pixar/Disney pairing and the Toy Story is the GOAT of the combo. Really dug this one and the message is tear worthy. Well done. 3 From Hell - Bad ass, but many already knew this. So many character actors in this one and you got to love Barry Bostwick as the narrator. Coming 2 America - Yep the 2nd installment in the franchise and truth be told it ticked all the boxes and was quite watchable. Seemed that everyone from the 1st was back for number 2. Certainly worth an hour and a half. Boogie Nights - This was a guilty pleasure re-watch. Couldn't be helped and it is still a real good movie. Spree - Harmless little ditty with one of the teenagers from Stranger Things as a UBER/LYFT type driver that wants to be famous on the Youtube, so to get likes he starts killing folks, IE: "spree". Some funny bits and certainly not bad. The House That Jack Built - This was not bad either and had a lot of gory bits. Ran a little long and certainly didn't lack in the pretentious department, but apparently I am not hep and Lars Von Trier is.
