Starship feat. Mickey Thomas - Loveless Fascination


Recommended Posts



From classichitsandoldies.com:


"Starship Featuring Mickey Thomas has announced official details about its upcoming studio album, Loveless Fascination, which is scheduled to hit stores on September 17. The 10-track collection will be the first studio effort from the veteran pop-rock act in more than 20 years.


Loveless Fascination was produced by longtime Foreigner bassist Jeff Pilson, who also was a member of Dio and Dokken. Pilson was the main songwriter on the new Starship album, and helped contribute a harder edge to the band’s sound.


The album marks the beginning of a new label deal Starship has signed with Loud & Proud Records.

Frontman Mickey Thomas says of the long-in-the-works project, “It’s been a long time coming. With each passing year, the bar was raised higher and higher for this album. I’d be lying if I didn’t tell you the expectations caused me a few sleepless nights.”


The singer adds, “Finally…everything fell into place. The right management came along, the right songs appeared, the perfect producer and finally the label I hoped for. Now the wait is over. Please PLAY IT LOUD!!”

Surprisingly decent release. A few clunkers, but also a few tracks that were really pretty decent. I didn't expect it to make it past one or two songs, but was glad to hear what is actually a pretty decent disc.

I thought I was the only one here liking this. I think Jez got this as well...

That last track is alright, but the other two were forgettable. These can't be the best songs, if you and Jezzer are liking the album.


Actually, I should say "It's Not the Same as Love" is pretty good, after hearing it in full.

It's a solid if nothing mind blowing. It just lacks the one killer track imo. Mickey Thomas still sounds great though..

A so-so release, not a single track that's worth of a 9, and in fact only 3 songs that I rated around 8 which are 'How Will I Get By', 'You Never Know', and 'You Deny Me'. The KISS cover of 'Nothing Can Keep Me From You' is also interesting, I like it but not great enough. The title track even sound like a MAROON 5 song, that's quite weird. Production is quite solid though but replay value remains low.

    • I don't. Hate it with a passion. Even that is so 1986. Retire Tesla please. You are an embarrassment now.

The band's new album, Super Fine Sugar, represents a huge leap forward for the hard-hitting quartet. Streetlight Circus showcases the urgent songwriting and soaring vocals of David Shaw, the fiery and passionate guitar work of George Giannoulis, the thunderous drumming of Erik Fehrenbach, and the smooth rhythm guitar work of Alex Rude. What’s more, Streetlight Circus has captured the attention of industry stalwarts who have eagerly participated in the creation of the new album. The songs were mixed and mastered by Grammy-winning producer and engineer Bob St. John. Guest appearances are made by Berton Averre (The Knack), Tony Harnell (TNT), Jon Auer and Ken Stringfellow (The Posies), Brian Forsythe (Kix), and Jesper and Jacob Binzer (D-A-D). Streetlight Circus has been invited to rock thousands at festivals such as Rock Fest (Wisconsin), Rocklahoma (Oklahoma), Rock N’ Derby (New York), Wolf Fest (Colorado), and the M3 Rock Festival (Maryland) among many others. The band has managed to comfortably fit on bills featuring bands as heavy as Avatar, Anthrax, and Megadeth and as accessible as The Doobie Brothers, Buckcherry, and Night Ranger. In 2018, Streetlight Circus embarked on a successful headlining tour of the United Kingdom taking them from Wales to Scotland and many British points in between. Supercharged and ready to roll with Super Fine Sugar, Streetlight Circus is prepared to rock stages around the globe. Don’t miss your chance to rock under the band’s big top. It’s a show you won’t want to miss. Watch the video for "Dirty Earth" featuring Tony Harnell at the link below  https://youtu.be/08_IuFTqwTM

    • Such was commonplace around here years ago. 
    • That's an oxymoron-even KarpetRyd knows that !  
    • Checked this out....not too bad but not sure how memorable it'll be. There's a few tunes I thought sounded pretty good after my first listen and do think Ronnie sounds excellent on the album  Songs like Scream and Shot in the Dark both stood out to me a bit.  I thought Last Man Alive sounded decent too. Much of the rest kind of feels like it falls in line with the first 2 singles that were released.  It's kind of heavy which is cool but just not coming off as being that catchy or memorable initially which was sort of my same problem with the last album.   We'll see what happens with more listens.  Here's a link to the whole album:  
    • WTF is this, two dudes having an intelligent conversation about a band without relying on easy absolutes. I'm impressed.
